Media research People in Switzerland generally have a critical attitude toward the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in the production of news coverage. There is currently little appetite to consume and pay for AI-produced news, and in addition, people fear that quality will decrease. These findings are shown in the 2023 Yearbook Quality of the Media published by the Research Center for the Public Sphere and Society (fög) at the University of Zurich.
In gene therapy, not all genes can be transported equally well into the target cells. Researchers have now developed a flexible method to deliver large genes efficiently and without significant side effects.
Media Research In the run-up to elections and referendums, the news media play an important role in shaping public opinion.
Academic Year 2023 A total of around 27,700 people will return to or begin studying at the University of Zurich next week.
20,000 to 30,000 visitors experienced science up close this weekend at Scientifica, Switzerland's largest science festival.
Evolutionary Biology Genetic quality or genetic compatibility? What do female fruit flies prioritize when mating? Researchers at the University of Zurich show that both factors are important at different stages of the reproductive process and that females use targeted strategies to optimize the fitness of their offspring.
Evolutionary Biology Artificial intelligence (AI) can help plant scientists collect and analyze unprecedented volumes of data, which would not be possible using conventional methods.
History An independent team of historians was given unprecedented access to archives of the Swiss Catholic Church to investigate cases of sexual abuse within the church. The researchers have now documented 1,002 cases of sexual abuse committed by Catholic clerics, church staff and members of Catholic orders that have occurred in Switzerland since the mid-20th century.
In a milestone for artificial intelligence (AI), the AI system -Swift-, designed by researchers, has beaten the world champions in drone racing - a result that seemed unattainable just a few years ago.
