Learning from nature

39 hours Spend German motorists on average every year in traffic jams. Fault are also lights that are unwound preset programs – largely independent of the flow of traffic. Would not it make more sense to develop intelligent systems that adapt flexibly and perhaps even are capable of learning? That thought, researchers interdisciplinary research initiative “Organic Computing”. One of them is Christian Müller-Schloer, a professor at the Leibniz University of Hanover: “We are trying mechanisms of complex systems, such as we observe in nature, to be transmitted in the technology,” says Müller-Schloer. Serves as a model around the self-organized routing of ants. “If ants randomly explore a food source and find the shortest path to its construction in a short time, you have to wonder: How create that, despite the restrictions in their sensory perception”

With 5G in the future

Sixth place in the international 10-country comparison leading digital economies. This is the result of the current “Digital Economy Monitoring Report 2015”, which was the beginning of November 2015 from Matthias Machnig, State Secretary in the Federal Ministry of host chat and energy presented. Although the German ICT industry ranks with a share of 4.6 percent on the commercial value before the German tradition Mechanical Engineering & just behind the vehicle, Machnig provides the National IT Summit in late November 2015 BERLIN still “room for improvement”. An important topic on the way to “Industry 4.0” are high data capacity and low response times. Keyword “5G”.
World leader is currently Huawei. The Chinese company is confident of being able to transfer a hundred times higher data rate than today already in five years with a thousand times higher capacity, extremely low delay and only a thousandth of energy consumption. A tightly filled DVD would then be loaded in less than four seconds, 625 times faster than the best DSL connection. For Huawei also researching in Germany. The European Research Center in Munich coordinates 18 European research institutions and is involved in the development of 5G technologies. In Munich, a 5G test environment was built.
