ICT Results is an editorial service created for the European Commission to showcase EU-funded ICT research and activities. ICT is currently charged with the mission of making European industry more competitive by conducting research in technology, science and industry. ICT Results was formed in 2003 and reorganized in 2007 for the purpose of creating a marketing, editing, research and communication entity. ICT's primary purpose is to account for funding and communicate to members, the public and governments the nature of their research in technology and science. ICT Results has a permissive attitude toward republishing their work and some stock photos. ICT Results only asks for a “Source Credit” and notification of the use of their work via the drop-down e-mail form. This is for the purpose of tracking interest in their work.
EU researchers explore pathways for transition to sustainable lifestyles
How can we begin to live more sustainably? How does time use influence our consumption patterns? Is environmentally sustainable growth actually feasible on a world scale? These are just some of the important questions that ...
Video camera that records at the speed of thought
(PhysOrg.com) -- European researchers who created an ultra-fast, extremely high-resolution video camera have enabled dozens of medical applications, including one scenario that can record 'thought' processes travelling along ...
Robots learning from experience (w/ Video)
Software that enables robots to move objects about a room, building up ever-more knowledge about their environment, is an important step forward in artificial intelligence.
Robot, object, action!
Robotic demonstrators developed by European researchers produce compelling evidence that thinking-by-doing is the machine cognition paradigm of the future. Robots act on objects and teach themselves in the process.
Robots use their hands to 'think'
Action-centred cognition is a groundbreaking concept in robotics where robots learn to 'think' in terms of what actions they can perform on an object. This new trend in cognition theory opens exciting new vistas.
Nanospheres stretch limits of hard disk storage
(PhysOrg.com) -- A new magnetic recording medium made up of tiny nanospheres has been devised by European researchers. The technology may lead to hard disks able to store more than a thousand billion bits of information in ...
Virtual reality you can reach out and touch
A team of European researchers has "virtually" teleported real objects through cyberspace, touched things in virtual reality and even felt the movements of a virtual dance partner.
Adaptive software -- a late bloomer
Adaptive software is the largely unfulfilled promise of mobile technology, but now a new platform developed by European researchers promises to finally deliver software that reconfigures itself depending on the context.
Algorithms provide a model of railway efficiency
(PhysOrg.com) -- If you've noticed that Dutch trains experience less delays or that waiting times are shorter on the Berlin underground you can thank a team of European researchers whose advanced algorithms are optimising ...
New probe promises to reveal brain's mysteries
(PhysOrg.com) -- Dozens of potential applications await a new neurological probing platform developed by European scientists. The new system offers the promise of new cures for neurological disease and a better understanding ...
