We released the source code for our paper "EM-Fusion: Dynamic Object-Level SLAM With Probabilistic Data Association" (ICCV 2019) and "Where Does It End? - Reasoning About Hidden Surfaces by Object Intersection Constraints" (CVPR 2020).
Congratulations to our alumni Xinjian Fan, who was just awarded as one of the top ten Ph.D. graduates in Harbin Institute of Technology, China.
Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart, Germany, develop artificial cilia that can be programmed to move in waves. In experiments, the researchers show how the millimeter-small cilia can pump viscous liquids just as effectively as their natural counterparts. Their research helps shed light on the mystery regarding which movement pattern generates a maximal fluid flow. Published in Science Advances, their findings contribute to a better understanding of the biomechanics of real cilia, and to the development of miniature robotic pumping devices that could one day be used inside the human body.

In total, 31 papers from Cyber Valley have been accepted to the upcoming NeurIPS 2020 conference
With 31 accepted papers, researchers from the Cyber Valley ecosystem are set to make a strong showing once again at the upcoming 34th Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS). In light of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the world’s leading conference for machine learning is going to be held online from December 6 to 12.
A Director at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart, Sitti is one of the world’s leading scientists in the field of physical intelligence. He is a pioneer in several areas of research, among them wireless tiny medical robots, gecko-inspired adhesives, and bio-inspired miniature robots.
Using a recently developed algorithmic sampling method, Nicolò Ruggeri and Caterina de Bacco aim to help social scientists better understand the relationships between nodes in large networks, including social media channels such as Facebook or Twitter.
In the next step, the scientists plan to apply their new method in collaboration with sociologists to investigate the connection between social media and real events.
The International Max Planck Research School for Intelligent Systems will accept its fifth generation of Ph.D. students in spring of 2021!
The Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and the Universities of Stuttgart and Tübingen collaborate to offer an interdisciplinary Ph.D. program, the International Max Planck Research School for Intelligent Systems (IMPRS-IS). Interested applicants can find more details on how to apply here.
Our immune system generally protects us from pathogens but sometimes it can work against us by eliminating drugs or other therapeutics circulating in our bloodstream
