Theoretical physicists from ETH Zurich deliberately misled intelligent machines, and thus refined the process of machine learning. They created a new method that allows computers to categorise data – even when humans have no idea what this categorisation might look like.
Quantum systems consisting of many particles are a major challenge for physicists, since their behaviour can be determined only with immense computational power. ETH physicists have now discovered an elegant way to simplify the problem.
Practice-oriented insights into vocational training at ETH Zurich
Coming to ETH, but not for academic studies — there are many exciting apprenticeships at ETH Zurich. Interested youngsters had an opportunity to get a personal impression of the vocational-training programme at ETH.
2017 Herschel Medal awarded to Simon Lilly

Quantum science: International exchange
Together with a group of physicists, ETH president Lino Guzzella traveled from 20 to 23 November 2016 to Israel, to visit the Quantum Information Science Center of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, near Tel Aviv. The visit was a further step towards strengthening international exchange in the field of quantum science.
