Two AI professorships for the University of Augsburg

As part of the High-Tech Agenda, the University of Augsburg has received two new professorships from the Free State of Bavaria in the field of artificial intelligence. This is a great success for the university and complements the existing interdisciplinary research areas - especially in relation to medicine. The new professorship for robot-assisted surgery and intelligent systems is intended to investigate the integration of modern robotics and intelligent, data-supported assistance systems into everyday clinical practise. The research area of the new professorship for Mathematical Statistics and Artificial intelligence in Medicine is the statistical methodology for furthering the use of AI. The processes developed thereby are intended to help answer specific issues in medicine.

Metallic compound with magnetic monopoles

Breaking a magnet into two pieces, reveals a north and a south pole in each of them. Independent magnetic monopoles have been known as emergent excitations in one special class of magnetic crystals only. Researchers of the University of Augsburg together with international collaboration partners found a new flavor of magnetic monopoles in a material which is even electrically conducting.

Greener springs are causing drier summers in the Northern Hemisphere

A team of researchers from Peking University, China, collaborated with others from Germany, UK, Spain, Belgium, France, Australia and the USA, found that earlier spring greening causes a large water loss from land soils by evaporation. This loss raises the risk of soil moisture droughts and heat extremes in the following summer months, according to the latest study published in the journal Science Advances.

Metal with unusual properties

A Chinese-German research cooperation involving the University of Augsburg has demonstrated properties in a metal that cannot be explained by the standard theory. The results were obtained on a special metallic compound with unusual magnetic characteristics – scientists call it magnetic frustration.  The cooperation observed a novel, “quantum critical behaviour” in the metal at very low temperatures and at high pressures and strong magnetic fields.
