Doctoral students present their interesting research to the general public.
The popular science presentation is a mandatory element in the doctoral education at Chalmers. The overall aim is to increase young researchers´capability to present their scientific results and ideas to the public environment in a language that anyone can understand. This will make new research visible in an accessible way to a broad audience.
Andreas Bengtsson: Quantum computers have been predicted to revolutionize our world since the early 1980s. In sci-fi literature and popular media you can read about everything from hacking bank accounts to creating artificial brains. How close is this to reality? I will explain how quantum computers work, how we are building them, what we can currently do with them, and what we are hoping to be able to do.
Rashidah Kasauli: “The need to meet customer demands and keep up with competition has led to a shift in the way companies develop their devices. These devices are mainly software driven and constantly changing. New development approaches are needed to address the constant changes in such devices. These approaches have been employed but bring challenges that need to be addressed. This presentation highlights approaches used, challenges brought by such approaches and possible solutions.”
Ghazaleh Ghaffari: “Crash avoidance systems are advanced safety technologies aimed for the modern cars. To develop such systems, we need to know how the car occupants would respond to them in potential pre-crash situations. For that purpose, experiments with volunteers subjected to autonomous lane changes and braking maneuvers have been done. Displacement of their body and their muscle activities have been analyzed. This information can be used for improvement of mathematical Human Body Models to help predict the injury risk in crashes.”
