Fraunhofer ISST and Aarhus University Hospital partner up to drive AI innovation

Fraunhofer Institute for Software and Systems Engineering ISST and Aarhus University Hospital (AUH) today announced a new three-year partnership. Based in Dortmund, Germany, and Aarhus, Denmark, these organisations have a long history of collaboration. This new applied research project aims to usher health data into the future by exploiting the computational power of artificial intelligence (AI) in clinical settings.

Research network a hotbed of ideas for museums and cultural institutions

With the new Museum Innovation Network, Fraunhofer IAO wants to work together with museums and cultural institutions to develop strategies and propose solutions to promote pioneering innovations in the sector. Members of the network hailing from the worlds of culture, research and business hold interdisciplinary project meetings to discuss the relevant issues, before trying out new concepts and technologies in the field.

AI language assistance in hospitals soon to be available in Ukrainian

There are approximately 21 million people with a migrant background living in Germany. Comprehension problems between patients and medical staff due to language barriers pose a particularly significant challenge for all parties involved and increase the risk of treatment errors and ineffective preventive measures. HYKIST assists foreign language-speaking patients upon arrival at the emergency room as well as with over-the-phone translation during doctor-patient meetings through AI-assisted communication. In this way, complex medical issues and specialist terminology in particular can be better translated.

ATHENE team cracks mechanism for internet security

The National research center for Cybersecurity ATHENE has found a way to break one of the basic mechanisms used to secure Internet traffic. The mechanism, called RPKI, is actually designed to prevent cybercriminals or government attackers from diverting traffic on the Internet. Such redirections are surprisingly common on the Internet, e.g., for espionage or through misconfigurations. The ATHENE scientist team of Prof. Dr. Haya Shulman showed that attackers can completely bypass the security mechanism without the affected network operators being able to detect this. According to analyses by the ATHENE team, popular implementations of RPKI worldwide were vulnerable by early 2021. The team informed the manufacturers, and now presented the findings to the international expert public.

A new institute building for the Fraunhofer ISST on its 30th birthday

30 years after the founding of the Fraunhofer Institute for Software and Systems Engineering ISST, the institute will move to a new location in autumn 2022, the »lighthouse« in the digital quarter currently being built in Dortmund harbour. The Fraunhofer ISST will celebrate this double reason for joy with a ceremony on 8 September 2022 in the brewing tower of the Dortmunder U. Under the title »New Spaces for Data and People«, the speakers will explain their vision of a social data market economy. Afterwards, the »lighthouse« will be inaugurated.

Fraunhofer IGD uses augmented reality to visualize Corvey monastery in its original state

The history of the monastery at Corvey can be traced back over a period of 1,200 years, and the old walls of this UNESCO World Heritage Site are still a hive of activity today. Fraunhofer IGD has developed an AR (augmented reality) app to show what it looked like when originally constructed. A special event is being held in the former Benedictine monastery to mark this year’s anniversary, and the guest list will include Frank-Walter Steinmeier, the current President of Germany. The occasion will also provide a trial run for the Fraunhofer app.

RFicient chips for sustainable IoT: Fraunhofer IIS research team wins Joseph-von-Fraunhofer Prize 2022

Keeping things constantly connected to the internet costs a lot of energy. Even small IoT nodes run out of battery in just a few weeks. All of this is changing with the RFicient® chip, developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS, which saves power consumption by up to 99 percent. This development is a big step forward for the Internet of Things and has secured the Joseph-von-Fraunhofer Prize for the developer team.
