• Scientists make a great breakthrough in compact X-ray lasers
    Free-electron laser (FEL) is the light source that can produce intense X-ray radiation for a wide range of applications. It can generate ultrashort pulses at timescales shorter than femtosecond (10-15s).  At these spatial and temporal scales, there is little difference between biology, chemistry and physics, and FELs have revolutionized all three disciplines. FELs have enabled matter to ...

  • Prof. Song Fu’s research group makes significant progress in AI security
    Deep learning has expanded its application to many real-world problems, but at the same time, it is found to be very vulnerable to some simple adversarial attacks. Though various defense mechanisms have been proposed to improve robustness of deep learning software, many of them are ineffective against adaptive attacks. Thus, it is an important and arduous task to study the attack and defense metho...
