The Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS), ETH Zurich and the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) are teaming up to develope more accurate weather and climate models that are even better adapted to the latest computer architectures.
Torsten Hoefler, ETH professor of computer science, will join the Swiss National Supercomputing Center (CSCS) on September 1, 2023. His expertise will help to ensure that the future, new CSCS supercomputer "Alps" becomes usable for machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI).
Researchers have succeeded in attaching electrodes to individual atomically precise nanoribbons, paving the way for precise characterization of the fascinating ribbons and their possible use in quantum technology.
Sonia Seneviratne will represent Switzerland in the Bureau of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The IPCC Bureau is responsible for advising the panel on science and work strategy and governs the preparation of the IPCC reports. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is made up of 195 governments and its reports are considered the gold standard of decision-making for climate policy.
