WeNet: diversity-aware algorithms to improve quality of life

WeNet is a multidisciplinary Project funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 program with the participation of the Instituto de Investigación en Inteligencia Artificial (IIIA-CSIC). An initiative that combines computer science, sociology and engineering. The kick-off meeting was held last January in Trento (Italy).

TOCHA will take a topological approach to the next generation of electronic, photonic and phononic devices

The European Project “Dissipationless topological channels for information transfer and quantum metrology” (TOCHA) has launched a consortium of 9 leading institutions from 6 European countries. TOCHA proposes radically new technologies taking advantage of the unique properties of topological matter that can prove crucial for information processing, quantum communication and metrology. It is funded with 5 Million Euros for the next five years and is coordinated by the Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia (ICN2).

Optomechanical crystals to enable chaos-based secure data communications

Researchers from ICN2's Phononic and Photonic Nanostructures (P2N) Group published a study where the complex dynamics, including chaos, of optical nonlinearities are controlled by using optomechanical crystals and changing the parameters of the excitation laser. This discovery might allow the information to be coded by introducing chaos into the light carrying it.
