Max Planck scientists Ruth Ley and Detlef Weigel have been identified as among the most influential researchers in their fields. In a recent announcement, the Web of Science index recognizes their extraordinary scientific influence, demonstrated by the production of multiple highly-cited papers that rank in the top 1 percent by citations. Located at the Max Planck Institute of Biology Tübingen, Ley and Weigel represent the Max Planck Society as one of the world's top 10 scientific institutions. Ley´s research team features two other senior scientists, Lars Angenent and William "Tony" Walters, who are also among the most frequently cited authors.  more

How do algae have sex? Podcast about dating underwater

Why are algae not plants? How do they reproduce, and why can algae outsource their intercourse? In the second episode of the new German podcast series "Auf den Grund gegangen", Susana Coelho and Daniel Liesner from the Max Planck Institute for Biology in Tübingen explain the astonishing reproduction mechanisms of brown algae. The new format of the Max Planck Campus Tübingen brings researchers from the lab to the microphone and and explores scientific topics in-depth. The podcast is produced by the press officers Sophia Jahns and Viola Brand.

Attack on autopilots

Attack on autopilots

June 10, 2020

How fast the development from assisted to fully automated vehicles will progress is uncertain. One crucial factor here is the reliability with which a vehicle can navigate in its surroundings and react to unforeseeable incidents. Our group at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems showed that methods for motion analysis based on deep neural networks – likely components in future autonomous vehicles – can be confused by small patterns designed to “attack” these networks. more
