The members of the Smart Photonic Materials group at TUT have achieved a breakthrough in reconfiguring light-controlled materials and thereby gained a greater degree of control over their movements. The results of this research were published in the prestigious Nature Communications journal.
The University of Tampere, Tampere University of Technology and Tampere University of Applied Sciences will form a new higher education community at the beginning of 2019.
“Machines are becoming aware of their surroundings. They can recognize the same sounds that we humans continuously observe in our environment,” says Professor Tuomas Virtanen. His area of expertise is audio signal processing.
Virtanen develops computational methods that allow machines to identify and process individual sounds and entire soundscapes. Research in the field has been propelled forward by the advancements made in machine learning in the past few years.
“Machine learning has been around for decades, but deep learning has brought near-human accuracy to audio analysis.”
Tampere University of Technology, the University of Tampere and Tampere University of Applied Sciences have joined forces to develop a new model of operation for higher education in Finland. They are working to establish a new higher education institution that will start its operations in the beginning of 2019.

TUT hosts a wide range of events that are relevant for industry and business, such as seminars, fairs and conferences, on an annual basis. Upcoming events are listed in the TUT Event Bulletin, which comes out once a month.
TUT has been steadily climbing international rankings in recent years. The University has held steady among the world’s top 400 universities in several rankings. This year TUT ranked 41th on ‘QS Top 50 Under 50’ list.
Tampere University of Technology is one of the two Finnish universities which operate in the form of a foundation. The foundation model promotes the development of education and research. It gives the University good prerequisites to succeed amid growing international competition.
The increased autonomy provides a competitive edge when competing for good researchers, inspiring teachers and talented students. The proceeds of foundation capital enable further investment in new openings in research and education.
