Bart Thomma

At the University of Cologne, Bart Thomma is to continue his research on soil organisms and their interactions with plants. He is expected to head a new Centre for Microbial Interactomics that is due to be established and within which he will focus on evolutionary microbiology. He will also cooperate with human biologists. After all, if we understand more about the genetics and interactions of microorganisms in the soil, this could be of use to medicine, too – in improving antibiotics, for instance.

Angela Schoellig

Whether you think in terms of autonomous drones, self-driving cars or robots that care for the sick or support older people, machines constantly have to respond to new and unexpected situations. Not all of these situations can be predicted and programmed with the appropriate default response. Machine learning and robots that learn from their experience are the solution.
