People typically sleep seven to eight hours in one stretch and stay awake for the rest of the day. Evolutionary scientists have assumed that this rhythm of sleep arose when our early ancestors went from being nocturnal to diurnal, but a new study of the Javan slow loris indicates that the human way of sleeping is much older.
The world’s great oceans are known to most people. Less well known is the seabed, and the fact that sediments are continually being deposited there. The recently updated map GlobSed shows 30 % more sediments on the seabed than previously assumed. A PhD Fellow at UiO has led the update.

Early Norwegian oil history - Oil on the Norwegian continental shelf and its significance in research and teaching
Sep. 16, 2019 2:30 PM
Following the discoveries of oil in the North Sea, considerable efforts were made at Norwegian universities to do research and teaching in petroleum geology, not only in traditional geology. A UiO professor who committed to building up Norwegian expertise in petroleum geology has now written about the early Norwegian oil history.
The University of Oslo is a partner in the NORA Consortium - The Norwegian Artificial Intelligence Research Consortium - that aims to strengthen Norwegian research and education within artificial intelligence, machine learning and robotics.
