High-performance OLED microdisplays for next-generation smart glasses

Credit: Uwe Vogel A consistent trend across the tech sector is the one-upmanship of increasingly high screen resolution and larger display size. Yet, the fact that the former increases faster than the latter means that manufacturers must achieve ever-higher pixel density. Large OLED microdisplays developed under the LOMID project could help solve that problem, thereby providing Europe with a competitive edge. They are increasingly considered as a must-have for near-eye applications such as virtual reality glasses: within the next few…

According to the German Engineering Association, the damage caused in 2016 in its branch alone amounted to EUR 7.3 billion. In the Advanced Materials Technologies journal, researchers of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the…

Voice impersonators can fool speaker recognition systems

Skilful voice impersonators are able to fool state-of-the-art speaker recognition systems, as these systems generally aren’t efficient in recognising voice modifications, according to new research from the University of Eastern Finland. The vulnerability of speaker recognition systems poses significant security concerns. Mobile devices are increasingly equipped with applications that function with voice commands. The user is able to dictate messages, translate phrases and do search queries by voice only. The widespread use of electronic services has increased the demand of…
