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.
