Mimicking nanoscale natural movements with the help of DNA Origami

  • 13 April 2018

Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems together with researchers at the University of Heidelberg and the University of Stuttgart use a technique called DNA origami to mimic a multitude of vital movements seen in nature, such as the sliding motion exerted by protein motors during cell division. Their invention, which is a thousand times smaller than a human hair, features a preliminary attempt to construct nanoscale analogues of the mysterious natural machines in living cells.

Award Ceremony of 2018 Leibniz Prize

  • 19 March 2018

Bernhard Schölkopf receives one of the Leibniz Prizes in Berlin - short video about his and his team´s research on machine learning (in German)

"I am very pleased about the Leibniz Prize", says Director Bernhard Schölkopf. "I see it as an award for all my employees and for the research field of machine learning, and it should benefit both in the future. We are only at the beginning, and want to investigate further how computers and living beings can learn to better understand the organizational principles of intelligent behavior."
