The Polish Science Voice

A publication Co-financed by National Center For Research and Development
Getting a computer to convert speech and natural language into written text is a major challenge for modern science. There are many potential uses for speech recognition technology being developed by companies like Poland’s Voicelab, which is carrying out a project called “Continuous speech recognition, background noise reduction and voice biometrics technology,” financed by the National Center for Research and Development under its Go_Global.pl program.
Tomasz Szwelnik, CEO of Voicelab, a Polish company that is carrying out a project focusing on speech recognition technology, talks to Karolina Olszewska.
Scientists from the Warsaw University of Technology are working to build tiny drone-like robots that will be able to fly and pollinate crops just as honeybees do. Technology of this kind could well prove to be a way to save the world from future famine now that honey bees are dying out by the millions across the planet.
As military technology develops, robots will soon replace human soldiers on the battlefield. For starters, they will assist humans in transport and reconnaissance tasks. And Polish military robotics experts are among those leading the way in Europe
A team of researchers led by Prof. Andrzej Napieralski from the £ód¼ University of Technology in central Poland has developed computer software for the electrothermal analysis of medium- and high-voltage power lines, including underground oil-cooled power cables, that is being used in the United States and Canada.
Electrically controlled glasses with continuously adjustable transparency, new polarization filters, and even chemosensors capable of detecting single molecules of specific chemicals could be manufactured thanks to a new polymer combining optical and electrical properties.
Scientists from the National Center for Nuclear Research (NCBJ) in ¦wierk near Warsaw have designed and constructed a mobile laboratory for testing air quality. One of only a few facilities of its kind in Poland, the lab will make it possible to quickly identify air pollution and alert the authorities when they need to take action to protect people’s health.
Research to confirm the existence of artificially created atoms of an element with the atomic number 117, conducted at an accelerator center in Darmstadt, Germany, has ended in success. Silicon strip detectors developed at the Institute of Electron Technology in Warsaw played an important part in the project.
Janus capsules are miniature, hollow structures that are in different parts composed of various micro- and nanoparticles. Theoreticians were able to design models of such capsules, but a real challenge was to produce them. Thanks to the use of an electric field, Janus capsules, named after the two-faced Roman god, can now be produced easily and at low cost.
