    today — Laboratory of Computational Science and Modelling High-throughput computational materials design promises to greatly accelerate the process of discovering new and better materials. Machine learning can help visualizing and rationalizing the structure-property relations between structures in the large databases that result from automated materials searches.

    yesterday — Laboratory of Computational Science and Modelling High-order path integral factorizations promise faster convergence of quantum mechanical properties of nuclei in atomistic modelling. A method developed at the Laboratory of Computational Science and Modelling makes it easy to use them together with arbitrarily-complex descriptions of inter-atomic potentials. Read the whole article

    17.02.17 — NCCR-Robotics Chances are that you’ve never given much thought to how insects walk, or what combination of leg movements – or gaits – is most stable or fastest, but, if like a group of scientists from Ramdya, Floreano and Ijspeert labs, NCCR Robotics, you are trying to create fast and robust robots, taking inspiration some of nature’s most agile movers might give you just the inspiration you need.

    17.02.17 — Mediacom Researchers at EPFL and UNIL have discovered a faster and more efficient gait, never observed in nature, for six-legged robots walking on flat ground. Bio-inspired gaits – less efficient for robots – are used by real insects since they have adhesive pads to walk in three dimensions. The results provide novel approaches for roboticists and new information to biologists. Read the whole article
