Using a camera to spot and track drones
Using a camera to spot and track drones
EPFL researchers have shown that a simple camera can detect and track flying drones. Plus, the lightweight, energy-efficient and inexpensive technology could be installed directly on the drones themselves and enhance safety in the skies. The rising number of drones in air space poses numerous challenges.

The right order
The right order
Ingo Scholtes from the Chair of Systems Design has developed an analytical method that takes account of the chronological order of connections within networks. This not only makes it possible to more accurately identify links between topics on the internet, but also makes it easier to predict the spread of epidemics, for example.

Find out how much privacy you compromise with every click
Find out how much privacy you compromise with every click
Does clicking on a link or liking a product have an impact on your privacy and your personal information? An EPFL researcher has come up with a way to browse the internet without revealing too much about yourself and without having to forgo the convenience of online product recommendations. Nowadays it is common for people to buy a book or other product that was recommended to them based on their online profile.

Spectacular images thanks to an efficient algorithm
Spectacular images thanks to an efficient algorithm
Filming of spectacular action scenes is expensive and the creative possibilities are often limited. An ETH doctoral student has developed an algorithm that allows drones to implement the desired picture compositions independently.

An algorithm designed to expand Wikipedia in all languages
An algorithm designed to expand Wikipedia in all languages
An EPFL researcher has created a system that scans Wikipedia for important articles that are missing in other languages. This project could help expand the online encyclopedia's coverage in minority languages, such as Romansh. With 40 million articles in 293 languages, Wikipedia is the largest encyclopedia ever made.

A powered exoskeleton prevents the elderly from falling
The first smart exoskeleton that recognizes the loss of balance - and prevents falling - has been developed by researchers at Scuola Sant'Anna in Italy, EPFL in Switzerland, and tested at the Rehabilitation Center ‘Fondazione Don Carlo Gnocchi' in Florence.

Unraveling the mystery of snowflakes, from the Alps to Antarctica
Unraveling the mystery of snowflakes, from the Alps to Antarctica
Using a special multi-angle camera, EPFL researchers have gained important insights into the structure of snowflakes. Their aim is to improve the accuracy of snowfall measurements and winter weather forecasts. Imagine taking pictures of thousands of snowflakes from three different angles with a specialized instrument installed at an altitude of 2,500 meters.

Machine translation: going beyond sentence by sentence
Machine translation: going beyond sentence by sentence
In working sentence by sentence, translation algorithms omit much of the context and make mistakes. A project supported by the SNSF has developed new algorithmic techniques designed to do a better job of taking the entire text into account. Researchers supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) have come up with a new approach to improving machine translation tools such as the famous Google Translate, which processes hundreds of billions of words daily.

When deep learning mistakes a coffee-maker for a cobra
When deep learning mistakes a coffee-maker for a cobra
‘Is this your sister'' That's the kind of question asked by image-recognition systems, which are becoming increasingly prevalent in our everyday devices. They may soon be used for tumor detection and genomics, too. These systems rely on what is known as ‘deep-learning' architectures - an exciting new development in artificial learning.

Using magnetic gates to track slalom skiers' performance
Using magnetic gates to track slalom skiers' performance
EPFL researchers can now measure a slalom skier's exact time at each gate all the way down the slope. Their system also calculates the skiers' speed and trajectory more accurately than GPS. Whether they're racing the slalom or giant slalom, skiers all face the same imperative: to round the gates as fast as possible.

Success by deception
Success by deception
Theoretical physicists from ETH Zurich deliberately misled intelligent machines, and thus refined the process of machine learning. They created a new method that allows computers to categorise data - even when humans have no idea what this categorisation might look like. When computers independently identify bodies of water and their outlines in satellite images, or beat the world's best professional players at the board game Go, then adaptive algorithms are working in the background.

Reptilian Robots are Spies in the Wild
Reptilian Robots are Spies in the Wild
EPFL scientists designed, built and remote-controlled the robotic structures of a crocodile and a lizard for a field experiment, in the depths of Africa, in collaboration with the BBC. The robots are featured in today's episode of ‘Spy in the Wild'. What happens when you combine EPFL's first-class robotic engineering with the BBC‘s first-class special effects' You get reptilian robots that look and move (almost) like the real thing, and as a bonus, a scientific tool for studying biology and for improving search and rescue robotics.
