Online software art exhibition
The exhibition Drift lets you explore search engines in a way you never thought about them. It lets you discover the intricate strata of code and network that operate to deliver the content of a search. Read the interview with one of its creators to find out more.
Software researcher wants to see more transparency
Castor, a research center for software development at KTH, has been inaugurated. Managing director Benoit Baudry wants to see an increased exchange between researchers and companies. He hopes that open source software-based research can spread to industrial production environments.
CASTOR joins the Eclipse Open Source Foundation
The KTH Software Research Centre CASTOR now joins Eclipse - one of the top-3 open source foundations in the world. By joining the Eclipse Foundation, CASTOR increases industry dissemination of its scientific results by facilitating joint work on common codebases. Eclipse Repairnator is the first project in this series.
Campus art installation captures the richness of basic software actions
Art can be a powerful projector of breakthrough science. During the 2022 Nobel Week Lights, an annual lights festival taking place during the Nobel Week, KTH launched an artwork called un|fold, which captures the richness of a simple software action.
Cyrille Artho new director of CASTOR
Cyrille Artho is the new Director of the CASTOR Software research centre. He’s lived in Japan for 11 years, where he worked on analysing networked software and testing together with software security. In his spare time, he likes to run in the forest close to KTH.
Project from EECS gets funding from Vinnova
The project Early Bird, where the KTH activities are led by Ingo Sander, Professor in Electronic Systems Design, receives funding from Vinnova. We have spoken to Ingo about what this will mean for them and how it will benefit the Swedish industry.
Congratulations to the award, César!
César Soto Valero has won a paper award in a top software engineering conference for his research on mitigating software bloat. Software bloat is code present in software applications, that is not necessary to execute the applications correctly. Instead, it is a pervasive problem that wastes computational resources, creates maintenance issues, and compromises security.
Hardcore hardware platform for experiments
We talked to Cyrille Artho, who has started up the Croaker Server, about 32 times as powerful as a high-end laptop: "At this point, we need an actual platform we can use to unleash our tools on different problems. Our laptops are not designed for that, as we need them for everyday tasks and cannot run experiments non-stop on them."
Software and textile art with Nadia Campo Woytuk
Hi Nadia Campo Woytuk, research engineer at the Division of Media technology and interaction design!
Interactive software art on the streets of Stockholm
Bring your phone and control Nobel laureates and their movements across a great wall! Inspired by Nobel Prize-awarded discoveries and laureates, stunning artworks will light up the darkness in 21 installations presented in the streets of Stockholm. Two of these installations are prepared by KTH groups: cyber|glow, by re|thread and Riddle 102 by the architectural design group at The School of Architecture and the Built Environment.
The Nobel Week Lights: see visualisations of Stockholm’s Internet traffic
We have spoken to Professor Benoit Baudry, who manages the KTH software research centre CASTOR, about its involvement in a light installation that visualises the massive internet activity coming in and out of Stockholm in real time installations across the city centre.
Two days on the latest within software
The software research centre CASTOR organised its second conference on 31 August to 1 September at KTH Nymble. Software researchers, engineers, and students gathered to discuss cutting-edge technology, current software design challenges and software-defined networking.
Benoit Baudry on his years as the director of CASTOR
Benoit Baudry's term as director of the CASTOR Software Research Centre has ended. We have talked about his four years on the job.
