Race On for EU’s $1.3 Billion Science Projects | TIME.com

Race On for EU’s $1.3 Billion Science Projects | TIME.com | FuturICT In the News | Scoop.it

“The world of today has become so complex that it’s beyond our control,” said Dirk Helbing, a professor at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology ETH in Zurich.

 

Helbing is the coordinator of the FuturICT team that aims to monitor the state of the planet in real time using growing mountains of data now at our fingertips.

 

Anybody will be able to tap into the system to explore possible future scenarios in much the same way as the meteorologists can now forecast the weather with a certain degree of accuracy

 

“Think of it as the telescope of the 21st century to help get better insight into problems,” Helbing said.

Billion-euro brain simulation and graphene projects win European funds

Efforts to model the whole brain and to push graphene into the marketplace triumph in flagship contest.

23 January 2013

Henry Markram will lead the Blue Brain Project, an attempt to reconstruct the brain virtually in a supercomputer.

 

The European Commission has selected the two research proposals it will fund to the tune of half-a-billion euros each after a two-year, high-profile contest.

 

The Human Brain Project, led by neuroscientist Henry Markram at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Lausanne, plans to simulate everything known about the human brain in a supercomputer — a breathtaking ambition that has been met with some scepticism

Fußgänger sind unkalkulierbar. Welche Wege sie wählen, ist nach wie vor die große Unbekannte in der Forschung. Physiker und Soziologen haben daher ein neues Modell entwickelt, das auch psychologische Faktoren in Zahlen übersetzt. Passanten werden damit berechenbar, ihre Bedürfnisse können besser berücksichtigt werden - wenn Stadtplaner umdenken.

BERLIN—Call it Europe’s Got Talent for geeks.

Teams of scientists from across the continent are vying for a funding bonanza that could see two of them receive up to €1 billion ($1.33 billion) over 10 years to keep Europe at the cutting edge of technology.

The contest began with 26 proposals that were whittled down to six last year. Just four have made it to the final round.

Simulation der ZukunftWissenschaftler wollen auf Supercomputern berechnen, wohin sich die Gesellschaft bewegt und so eine "Ära sozialer und sozio-inspirierter Innovationen" einleiten

Ende Januar wird sich die EU entscheiden, welches FET Flagship sie unterstützen wird. Gesucht werden wissenschaftliche Großprojekte vom Format der Mondlandung. Einer der aussichtsreichsten Kandidaten auf die immensen Fördergelder ist FuturICT. Das Projekt soll die Weltgesellschaft auf Supercomputern simulieren, die Zukunft managen und eine neue Wissenschaft gründen. Ob der von langer Hand geplante Paradigmenwechsel gelingt, ist aber ungewiss.
