Digital change for a better society
Digitalization is probably the most profound change happening to society and businesses today. SINTEF is at the forefront of research based innovation on digital technologies as well as its applications. Through both internal research and partnerships with industry, public sector and academia SINTEF brings practical advice and applied research to the market.
Artificial intelligence and machine learning have resulted in some important breakthroughs. Algorithms based on artificial intelligence can now recognise text, speech, sounds, images, faces and much more with increasingly higher levels of accuracy.
In the future, many of our systems will operate autonomously, i.e. without human intervention. Self-driving cars and autonomous robots are gradually entering our daily lives, without us even noticing them.
In the future, data will be a key economic asset. The ability to manage and extract value from proprietary data will provide industry players with a competitive advantage, making these data key drivers of economic growth and job creation.
Researchers honoured for their digital recipe for success
Norwegian research has offered the world new knowledge about how major IT projects should be organised to succeed. The star duo behind these findings has now been honoured for their groundbreaking work with SINTEF’s research prize worth NOK 150,000.
What young people ask about when guaranteed anonymity
An analysis of almost 300,000 unsolicited questions written by young Norwegians on the website ung.no, has provided major insights into what they’re really interested in today. Their bodies, health and identity are among the topics heading the list.
This is what you need to know about CCS – Carbon Capture and Storage
