The 2017 International conference on micro- and nanomachines will be held in Wuhan, China, from the 25-28 August and will be co-chaired by Peer Fischer
NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang presented the NVAIL AI Labs with the very first Tesla V100 GPUs, based on NVIDIA's Volta architecture. MPI-IS is among the top centers working at the leading edge of deep learning in computer vision. As such it is recognized by NVIDIA as one of its NVAIL labs and giving the MPI access to the best and latest NVIDIA technology. Huang unveiled these new GPUs at CVPR saying that he wants to put them in the hands of researchers first.
Peer Fischer, head of the Research Group "Micro-, Nano- and Molecular Systems" at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and Professor of Physical Chemistry at the University of Stuttgart, was awarded with a Steinhofer lecture 2017 of the University of Freiburg "for his fundamental work in the field of targeted 3D-production of artificial nanostructures and their application in biomedicine". Professor Fischer gave his lecture on "How to Teach Nanoparticles and Enzymes to Swim".
Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (MPI-IS) have developed technology to digitally capture clothing on moving people, turn it into a 3D digital form, and dress virtual avatars with it. This new technology makes virtual clothing try-on practical.
Scientists are developing tools that allow you to digitally feel textures like wood and cotton.
Hyeon-Ho Jeong, PhD student in the Micro, Nano, and Molecular Systems Research Group headed by Peer Fischer at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart is the recipient of the graduate student award combined with a grant of 450 Euro from the European Materials Research Society (E-MRS). He received the award at the Spring Meeting 2017 in Strasbourg, France.
The Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems is celebrating the opening of its new building in Tübingen
Tübingen, 12. Juli 2017. This opening ceremony involved teamwork between humans and machines. While the robot Apollo held the red ribbon, Minister-President Winfried Kretschmann and Martin Stratmann, President of the Max Planck Society, cut the symbolic cordon to officially open the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems’ new building in Tübingen. They were assisted by Science Minister Theresia Bauer and Stefan Schaal, the Institute’s Managing Director. After a two-and-a-half-year construction period, the scientists recently moved into the Institute building made possible by funding worth millions from the federal state government. They are now conducting basic research on artificial intelligence here.
New book from Metin Sitti
Progress in micro- and nano-scale science and technology has created a demand for new microsystems for high-impact applications in healthcare, biotechnology, manufacturing, and mobile sensor networks. The new robotics field of microrobotics has emerged to extend our interactions and explorations to sub-millimeter scales. This is the first textbook on micron-scale mobile robotics, introducing the fundamentals of design, analysis, fabrication, and control, and drawing on case studies of existing approaches.
