New professor on the data surge: It will only get worse

Daniel Lucani Rötter is a new professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Aarhus University. He conducts research into how we can solve some of the internet's biggest Gordian knots.

In a new project, researchers aim to develop technology to enable self-driving cars to share data. This will increase safety on the roads (Photo: Colourbox).
"Self-driving cars must be able to handle situations that only rarely occur in real life. This places considerable demands on artificial intelligence and software development," says Lukas Esterle, assistant professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Aarhus University.

Self-driving cars must be able to communicate with each other

Cars must be able to share knowledge about what is happening on the roads and warn each other about dangerous situations. This will improve road safety in a future with autonomous vehicles, and Independent Research Fund Denmark is investing in technology development.

New researcher wants to develop cancer medicine in Denmark. She has a unique idea

Lili Zhang wants to use her knowledge about mechanical engineering to develop new types of cancer medicine. The idea is new, the approach is innovative and highly interdisciplinary, and just thinking about the potential clinical impact is enough to make you dizzy.
