“By the investments we are making in quantum science and technology," says Steve Ackerman, "we are ... leading the way in concepts and technology that may revolutionize computing, communication, security and more.”
Thelma Estrin was an early pioneer of the field of medical informatics — the now commonplace practice of applying computers to medical research and treatment. She also was something of a trailblazer for women hoping to pursue careers in the sciences.
In a single calendar year, the program will catch students up on the fundamentals of quantum physics, cover the theory behind quantum computing, and teach students laboratory skills to construct the devices.
The University of Wisconsin Center for High Throughput Computing will receive $2.2 million dollars to help develop software to support an upgrade in the Large Hadron Collider.
Researchers are using artificial intelligence to develop a comprehensive picture of how people communicate about politics, and how those conversations are shaped by media, social networks and personal interactions.
The most susceptible U.S. cities are New York, Miami and Seattle, but the effects would ripple across the internet — potentially disrupting global communications.
A UW–Madison researcher has helped develop a unique online chatbot that can answer, in simple language, questions about specific privacy policies without requiring users themselves to weed through all of the fine print.
A UW–Madison spinoff company is refining a medical management software package designed to help doctors treat patients more efficiently.
UW electrical and computer engineers, acting on an idea from a Wisconsin cranberry grower, have developed a device to make a laborious, time-consuming process more efficient.
A UW–Madison lab has made a molecule that gains magnetic strength through an unusual way of controlling those spins, which could lead to a breakthrough in quantam computing.
