21 May 2014 - University of Twente develops antenna capable of remedying malfunction Researchers from the University of Twente have developed an antenna that can put an end to a malfunction. Developing such an antenna has been possible for some time, but its production was too expensive. Postgraduate student Michiel Soer has developed smart circuits which mean this antenna can now be manufactured extremely economically and cheaply. 15 May 2014 - Research of CTIT PhD-student Mena Badieh Habib Morgan in the news! There has been a UT homepage news item with an associated notice to the press about Mena's research. This has been picked up by some journalists from Tweakers.net and NU.nl. 14 May 2014 - Computers learn better reading comprehension through UT research Mena B. Habib, a researcher at the University of Twente CTIT research institute, teaches computers to improve their reading comprehension. He developed a method by which computers can detect and interpret 'named entities' in a text. These are, for example, names of people, places and organizations, whose importance is dependent upon the context. Habib's method allows computers to analyze the context and thus determine what is meant by the named entity. 29 Apr 2014 - June 2, 2014: Cyber Security symposium – share knowledge, meet & expose On June 2, the NCSRA (National - Dutch - Cyber Security Research Agenda) organises a Symposium on Cyber Security.

His technology can be used to check whether private data can be leaked and, if so, how much information is actually leaked in that case. His technology can also be used to detect possible leaks. 16 Apr 2014 - STEVEN TE BRINKE WINS STUDENT RESEARCH COMPETITION AT SAC '14 The Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) 2014 was held from March 24 to 18 in Gyeongju, Korea.
