New research: It may take 20 years for businesses to adopt AI
It will take a long time, closer to 20 years, before today’s AI technology will be in full use within businesses. New data simulation developed by researchers at Örebro University shows that this lengthy process will result in many of the companies...
Using AI to optimise taste and nutrition in plants
Basil is being grown in a robotic cultivation testbed at Örebro University. Each plant is monitored by sensing technology, providing researchers with valuable big data. Data that can be then used together with artificial intelligence to determine how to...
Dill grown in greenhouses with UV light better tasting
Örebro researchers added UV light in the greenhouse to impact the flavour in dill – and it paid off. To understand why the dill tastes better, researchers have examined what happens inside the dill. The next step is to grow dill that not only tastes...
Örebro–Wien chemistry lab collaboration resulted in 40 training videos
Gathering students, together with their teacher in a lab, is the norm for new chemistry students. The pandemic, however, forced Michaela Zeiner to rethink her teaching methods. In collaboration with a Vienna colleague, they quickly put together some...
Researchers are developing a robot that kills viruses and bacteria
Researchers at Örebro University are developing an open source and easy-to-build robot that uses UV-C light to kill COVID19 and other viruses. The goal is to allow anyone to build a robot and then use the software that the researchers have developed.
Water-dwelling insects transport high levels of PFAS chemicals to land-based insects
The high levels of PFAS chemicals in lakes and ponds pass through the food chain when land-based insects feed on water-dwelling insects. “These results show that water pollutants do not stay there, but also affect wildlife on land”, says Alina Koch,...
AI can detect the spread of fake news
A correct quote or truthful image can suddenly be turned into false propaganda. Extremely small modifications are enough to change the entire meaning. Örebro University Professor Mehul Bhatt, together with an international team, is researching how...
Örebro research providing robots with eyes
Technology from Örebro University will help autonomous robots to work remotely with challenging tasks. This knowledge is instrumental in the production of underwater robots.
Saab: “A great way to get started”
As part of the AI.MEE project Corob, AI researchers at Örebro University have worked together with Saab to teach robots to communicate. “We’ve had a kickstart,” says Göran Backlund at Saab.
Örebro University offering tuition-free AI courses for furloughed employees
To counteract the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, the government is now investing a total of SEK 160 million in short courses and lifelong learning. A significant component of the initiative is the AI courses for working professionals that Örebro...
