Artificial intelligence dives into thousands of WW2 photographs

In a new international cross disciplinary study, researchers have used artificial intelligence to analyse large amounts of historical photos from WW2. Among other things, the study shows that artificial intelligence can recognise the identity of photographers based on the content of photos taken by them.

From Danish hemp fields to sustainable textiles

One hectare of Danish-grown hemp can replace 2-3 hectares of cotton and requires significantly less water in production. A new project, supported by Innovation Fund Denmark, aims to develop a method that will make the hemp textiles a sustainable alternative to cotton.

How do we design reliable AI for marine robots?

Intelligent marine robots open up a wide range of possibilities in the vast unknown areas below sea level, covering more than 70 per cent of the surface of the Earth. However, we need reliable artificial intelligence if robots are to operate on their own. A new EU-funded project will address this problem.

New invention measures glacier water in the Arctic Ocean

Engineers from Aarhus University have developed a device that makes it possible to collect water samples from the Arctic Ocean at depths of 300 metres. This will help climate researchers acquire new knowledge about how the ice in the northern hemisphere is melting and what happens when it mixes with the salty seawater
