IFISC researchers demonstrate the potential of Gaussian states in Reservoir Computing

March 23, 2021
An international team led by researchers of the Institute of Cross-disciplinary Physics and Complex Systems (IFISC, UIB-CSIC) has proposed the use of Gaussian states to perform reservoir computing both in quantum and classical regimes. The paper is published in Communications ...

Scientists identify free-riding behavior in the global fisheries dynamics

Feb. 25, 2021

Using geolocation data, a study with IFISC participation analyzes how fishing pressure in international waters is concentrated around areas under the jurisdiction of nations.

IFISC researcher, co-author of an article in Science on random number generators

Feb. 24, 2021
IFISC (UIB-CSIC) researcher Ingo Fischer, together with Daniel J. Gauthier (Department of Physics, Ohio State University), has published an article in the Perspectives section of the journal Science. The authors analyze and put into context different cutting-edge optical devices for ...

Voces, CSIC Balears: Complex networks, football and the rental market

Feb. 18, 2021
IFISC (UIB-CSIC) and the Institutional Representation of CSIC in the Balearic Islands join forces and create "Voces, CSIC Balears", a bimonthly podcast for the dissemination of science. Through interviews with scientists working at CSIC's centres in the Balearic Islands ...

A study analyses how microplastics sink in the Mediterranean Sea

Feb. 16, 2021
A study, with participation of IFISC (UIB-CSIC) researchers, describes how microplastics sink in the Mediterranean Sea and analyses the consequences for their dispersion and distribution throughout the water column. The work, published in Ocean Science, proposes a model for the ...

Study links anthropogenic noise in the ocean to changes in marine animals and their ecosystems

Feb. 4, 2021
An international team of researchers, including IFISC (UIB-CSIC) researcher Víctor Eguíluz, has documented the impact of human-caused noise on marine animals (from invertebrates to whales) and their ecosystems. The scientists have found evidence of its negative effect, altering the behavior ...

Experimental evidence of the Radar COVID application

Jan. 27, 2021
Identifying the contacts with whom an infected person has been is key in any pandemic to stop the spread of the pathogen. This can be done manually, by asking the sick person, however it is an extremely slow and complex ...

Defining the 'temperature' of language features

Jan. 22, 2021
It is estimated that 'modern' human language has been with us for at least 100,000 years. Unfortunately, the historical evolution of languages is often poorly documented, and evidence does not go further back in time than the moment when ...

The Andreev-Coulomb effect in quantum dots

Dec. 28, 2020
Quantum dots are nanoscale systems where electrons are confined in the three spatial dimensions. This unique feature allows us to control the current that passes through a quantum dot, which thus shows properties similar to a transistor. A remarkable transport ...

Dispersion as a destabilizing mechanism of ecosystems

Nov. 30, 2020
Ecosystems are one of the paradigmatic examples in complex systems science. A large number of species interact with each other in various ways, either by feeding upon each other, competing for the same resource, or even collaborating. But within an ...
