Artificial neural networks make life easier for hearing aid users
Researchers have taken an important step towards making life easier for people with hearing loss. Morten Kolbæk, PhD student at Aalborg University (AAU), has developed a groundbreaking algorithm that can enable hearing aid users to take a more active part in conversations in noisy environments − Photo: ©Oticon
SGRE and AAU to lead project making offshore wind more affordable
Siemens Gamesa and Aalborg University to lead EU-funded R&D project to make offshore wind one of the most affordable energy sources
Video: Student Recreates the Sound of the Sixties with Software
PhD student Silvin Willemsen from Aalborg University, Denmark, has made an award-winning effect for music and sound production. Based on analogue models, he has developed software that replicates the classic sixties ‘plate reverb’ effect with a high level of precision.
New AAU Professor to Harness Massive Information
The amount of data is growing explosively these years. In three hours we generate more data than the amount that existed in 2003. Newly appointed computer science professor Katja Hose, 38, will map the data ocean so that we have the information we need, and especially, so that information is easily accessible, reliable and accurate
AAU closes seven degree programmes and changes language on six others
Based on a larger analysis and strategic considerations for the faculties, AAU has decided to close down seven degree programmes, change language from English to Danish on six other programmes and put one programme on standby. This decision was made to meet the Ministry’s order to reduce admissions of international students by 290 in 2019. Students can complete their current programme.
Robots in Sewers will Save Society Millions
In the future the country's sewer systems will be inhabited by surveillance robots. Using robots, big data and artificial intelligence (AI), a new Danish research project will save hundreds of millions of kroner on maintaining sewers.
New Ranking Confirms: AAU is World Class in Engineering
Yet another recognised international ranking places Aalborg University (AAU) among the world's absolute top institutions in engineering. Best Global Universities ranks AAU in fourth place.
AAU Students to Learn to Build Denmark’s New Fighter Jets
Two engineering students from Aalborg University will be doing an internship at Lockheed Martin starting in January where they will learn to build the world's most advanced combat aircraft
Enabling More Solar Energy in the Grid with Better Control
The power generated from solar photovoltaic (PV) panels is fluctuating. This poses a big challenge to the existing power grid in terms of frequency and voltage stability. A researcher at Aalborg University has developed strategies for controlling the fluctuating power of solar PV systems so that in the future, we can ensure a higher proportion of solar energy in the grid in a friendly way
Strong national partnership strengthens Danish healthcare innovation
In Denmark, four regional business clusters and two innovation networks have joined forces with five universities with the aim to strengthen the national collaboration on development and testing of new healthcare technologies.
