Faculty of Electrical Engineering CTU presented the results of the equal opportunities survey

Behind robots or artificial intelligence algorithms are specific people who put their experience, knowledge and social factors into them. It is proven that solutions from technology teams that are not diverse, therefore, often do not respect the differences and needs of different groups. The Faculty of Electrical Engineering CTU, where an equal opportunities survey was conducted, is also committed to building a more diverse environment. This will then be followed up with activities that reflect the opportunities identified in the audit.

The Become a Scientist for a Day event will once again offer female students interesting excursions into the worlds of physics, chemistry and robotics

The eighth year of the Become a Scientist for a Day event will guide high school female students through interesting research and experiments in physics, chemistry, robotics and mathematics. A programme full of lectures, workshops and discussions with female scientists and students will take place on 10 February at the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering of the Czech Technical University and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague. The number of places is limited. Female students interested in science can register via the website until 31 January. The event is being held on the occasion of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, declared by the UN General Assembly in 2015. The day falls annually on 11 February and aims to commemorate the important role of women in the world of science and promote their access to science education.

The competition of student computer games at FEE CTU was won by the hell building strategy

The game Inferno Baked, in which players as hell officials punish sinners, won this year's competition of semester projects of students of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of CTU. The winning team, consisting of Ondřej Baštař, Jan Kabíček, Ondřej Pelikán and Jakub Profota, scored points in a competition of 12 other groups. The presentation of all beta versions of the games and the announcement of the winners took place on Tuesday, January 10, at the FEL CTU building on Prague's Charles Square. The top three projects were decided by a 15-member jury consisting of academics and representatives of game studios. You can watch the trailers of all the competing games here:

The European Commission plans to onboard 100 million people to a new EU-based DNS internet infrastructure. The DNS4EU will be developed by international consortium including AI Center FEE CTU

The goal of DNS4EU is to provide EU citizens, companies, and institutions with a secure, privacy compliant, and powerful recursive DNS – an “address book of the internet” enabling browsing web via domain names instead of strings of numbers. The project will become a vital part of European internet sovereignty.

Experts at FEL talked about the problems and risks of smart building and home systems

On 14 December, IT experts at the FEE CTU in Prague – Dejvice talked about the weak points of security of intelligent technologies used in buildings and households. The panel discussion was organized by the CTU Master's degree programme Intelligent Buildings, which is co-organised by the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Faculty of Civil Engineering.

The Electrotechnical Olympiad was won by a student who designed a fast and cheap system for the analysis of nanodiamonds

The project with which student Marek Hanus won the tenth year of the Electrotechnical Olympiad can be useful in medicine and technology. The final took place on 16 December 2022 at the FEE CTU in Prague. Hanus impressed the expert jury with the system he developed for analyzing the purity and sedimentation of nanodiamonds. The winner is studying at the Secondary School of Electrical Engineering and Informatics in Rožnov pod Radhoštěm. Nine talented high school students made it to the final of the Electrotechnical Olympiad at the end of last year. Three of the awarded projects are already being used in practice or soon will be. The Electrotechnical Olympiad is organised by the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the CTU with the contribution of partners and the main sponsor, Škoda Auto.

The best IT thesis comes from FEE CTU! The winner of IT SPY 2022 is Jiří Ulrich, a graduate of Open Informatics

Ing. Jiří Ulrich wins the best diploma thesis in computer science in the IT SPY 2022 competition. A graduate of the Open Informatics program is now a doctoral student at the Artificial Intelligence Center at the Department of Computer Science FEE CTU. He won the prestigious competition with his thesis on Fiducial marker-based multiple camera localisation system. As a prize, he received 2,000 EUR for the further development of the project from the software company PROFINIT, which organizes the competition.

How do robots see the world? FEE CTU presents the interactive light installation Forum Robotum at Signal Festival

On October 13–16, 2022, the tenth edition of Signal Festival will take place in several locations in Prague. For the first time, CTU’s Faculty of Electrical Engineering will also take part with the interactive Forum Robotum installation on Charles Square. The work was co-created by researchers, students and external artists. Visitors can look forward to a unique audiovisual experience with interactive elements. Over the course of four evenings, a robotic zoo will show, how robots perceive the world around them, what their magnetic field sounds like and how they react to people in real-time. Forum Robotum is an opportunity to experience what the future of robots and humans might look like
