  • Biodiversity patterns, especially in microbial communities; alternative ways to encode and store information

L2: Brain-inspired analog computing in photonic and electronic systems

  • Hardware implementations of reservoir computing and their applications in telecom and datacom
  • Development of novel computing concepts, theoretical framework for scaling and modelling
  • Autonomous operation of recurrent networks 

L3: Quantum information: decoherence, dissipation, and transmission

  • Emergent quantum phenomena and information retrieval in extended and network systems
  • New functionalities based on nanoelectronic devices
  • Information processing using quantum materials

L4: Information processing in socio-technical systems

  • Evolution of social-system and processing of information: opinion, consensus, meme spreading, fake news, etc.
  • Studies of mobility of people and animals;
  • Data-driven modeling and response of urban systems to external perturbations.
