Collaboration is key in esophageal cancer screening
Collaboration is key in esophageal cancer screening
More than a decade of research at TU/e, led by Fons van der Sommen, has culminated in a scientific publication in The Lancet Digital Health this December. The study focuses on the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to detect incipient esophageal cancer in people with Barrett's esophagus. It is 2011.

On the right track
Mark Bouwman defended his PhD thesis at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science on October 23rd. In a few years, the safety system for switches and signals along European railroads will change so that the same system will be used across the entire network. The system will no longer be controlled via a direct cable, but with packets of information transmitted through a fiber optic network.

Healthcare workers stop active hacker in cybertruck
Last week, researchers and Bachelor's students from the University of Twente investigated whether an escape room simulation of a cyber attack could contribute to increasing cybersecurity awareness. The participants were staff of healthcare facilities in the Twente and eastern Achterhoek regions. Initial results show that the escape room increases cybersecurity awareness among healthcare workers: for instance, participants say they are more alert to phishing, installing software updates promptly, and the use of strong passwords.

Many municipalities do not yet respond adequately to security vulnerabilities
Many local authorities respond too slowly or inadequately to reports about security vulnerabilities. These coordinated vulnerability disclosures (CVD reports) are often made by ethical hackers who aim to make the internet safer. While this process has improved in recent years, the study by the University of Twente and the Dutch Institute for Vulnerability Disclosure (DIVD) indicates that there is still much room for improvement for local authorities.

New teaching materials improve statistical numeracy
New teaching materials improve statistical numeracy
Data visualizations, including diagrams, are a frequent sight in the media. Histograms, in particular, are popular for their ability to present data concisely. Unfortunately, many people find these diagrams challenging to interpret. Lonneke Boels conducted an investigation into why this occurs, using artificial intelligence to analyse eye movements.

Chessboard-like operation of world's largest controllable quantum dot array
Chessboard-like operation of world’s largest controllable quantum dot array
Researchers from Delft established a way to address many quantum dots with only a few control lines using a chessboard-like method. This enabled the operation of the largest gate-defined quantum dot system ever. Their result is an important step in the development of scalable quantum systems for practical quantum technology.

’As a researcher, this tool saves me a lot of work and stress’
In this series we show what contribution projects can make to FAIR research IT. The research teams of the projects in these interviews have received a grant from the FAIR Research IT Innovation Fund . Good news for scientists whose technological skills are limited, but who want to work with social media data in their research: now you can use 4CAT, a tool that helps you to harvest and analyse such research data in a simple way.

Vidi funding for four UT research projects
The Dutch Research Council for Scientific Research (NWO), has awarded Vidi funding to four UT research projects. These are studies led by Arnd Hartmanns, Linn Leppert, Jelmer Renema and Roland van Rijswijk-Deij. With this contribution of 800,000 euros, they can develop an innovative line of research and set up a research group in the coming five years.

New AI-model with better understanding of images
Generative AI programmes can generate images from textual prompts. These models work best when they generate images of single objects. Creating complete scenes is still difficult. Michael Ying Yang, a UT-researcher from the faculty of ITC recently developed a novel method that can graph scenes from images that can serve as a blueprint for generating realistic and coherent images.

The link between artificial intelligence (AI) and software engineering
The link between artificial intelligence (AI) and software engineering
Developments are rapid around data, algorithms, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), especially since the launch of ChatGPT late last year. Software engineering is highly relevant here, because AI systems are essentially made up of software, and also because the two fields influence each other.

People are open to algorithms (if they benefit from them)
People are open to algorithms (if they benefit from them)
Algorithms will inevitably play an increasing role in our lives in the coming years. Yet it is often suggested that people are wary of computer systems taking over their everyday choices. For example, do we trust computers with our health and money? A new publication in AI & Society by Radboud researchers shows that humans are quite open to algorithms' decisions, as long as we believe that this is to our benefit.

New method revolutionises network analysis
How do you find the fastest route if you can't see all possible links? For example when "routing" Internet traffic - something which is now done based on trust - or protein pathways in the body, insights wherein can lead to completely new understandings diseases and medicines? Scientists have been racking their brains over the question since the 1950s.
