Stochastic Processes Take the Lead

Experimental facilities around the globe are facing a challenge: their instruments are becoming increasingly powerful, leading to a steady increase in the volume and complexity of the scientific data they collect. At the same time, these tools demand new, advanced algorithms to take advantage of these capabilities and enable ever-more intricate scientific questions to be Read more about Stochastic Processes Take the Lead[…]

A novel computational design optimisation method that reduces costs by using artificial intelligence

In the field of industrial engineering, using simulations to model, predict and even optimise the response of a system or device is widespread, as it is less expensive and less complex -and, sometimes, less dangerous- than fabricating and testing several prototypes. This type of simulation studies uses numerical methods that, depending on the problem to Read more about A novel computational design optimisation method that reduces costs by using artificial intelligence[…]

New sense of imagination in Artificial Intelligence

Imagine an orange cat. Now, imagine the same cat, but with coal-black fur. Now, imagine the cat strutting along the Great Wall of China. Doing this, a quick series of neuron activations in your brain will come up with variations of the picture presented, based on your previous knowledge of the world. In other words, Read more about New sense of imagination in Artificial Intelligence[…]

Smartphone can be used as a spectrometer

Recognizing fake drugs? Testing water samples ourselves? Checking the quality of air? In the future, it could be possible to do all this using a smartphone in a quick, cost-effective and straightforward way. The process is being made possible by a spectrometer, weighing just one gram, from the Fraunhofer Institute for Electronic Nano Systems ENAS. Read more about Smartphone can be used as a spectrometer[…]

Digital Hazard Prevention for Cobotic Workstations

Humans and robots are sharing workspace in more and more sectors, whether they be manufacturing, logistics or medicine. Safety plays a major role in this. Up to now, range-finders on robots have prevented severe impacts or crushing when collisions occur but these sensors do not function when humans and machines have to stand close to Read more about Digital Hazard Prevention for Cobotic Workstations[…]

Machine learning accelerate to discover new advanced materials

If everything moved 40,000 times faster, you could eat a fresh tomato three minutes after planting a seed. You could fly from New York to L.A. in half a second. And you’d have waited in line at airport security for that flight for 30 milliseconds. Thanks to machine learning, designing materials for new, advanced technologies Read more about Machine learning accelerate to discover new advanced materials[…]

6G technology will bring haptic internet, mobile edge computing and holographic communications

Imagine you’re a fisherman living by a lake with a rowboat. Every day, you row out on the calm waters and life is good. But then your family grows, and you need more fish, so you go to the nearby river. Then, you realize you go farther and faster on the river. You can’t take Read more about 6G technology will bring haptic internet, mobile edge computing and holographic communications[…]

Night vision forever with ultra-thin film

Researchers from The Australian National University (ANU) have developed new technology that allows people to see clearly in the dark, revolutionising night-vision. The first-of-its-kind thin film, described in a new article published in Advanced Photonics, is ultra-compact and one day could work on standard glasses. The researchers say the new prototype tech, based on nanoscale crystals, Read more about Night vision forever with ultra-thin film[…]

A green material with many properties

A DTU research team consisting of Malgorzata Gosia Pierchala, Firoz Babu Kadumundi, and Mehdi Mehrali from #TeamBioEngine headed by Alireza Dolatshahi-Pirouz, have developed a new material – CareGum – that among other things has potential for monitoring motor impairment associated with neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s. The CareGum property portfolio is incredibly broad with feats Read more about A green material with many properties[…]

Printed electronics offer the advantage of flexibility and low cost

The demand for flexible wearable electronics has spiked with the dramatic growth of smart devices that can exchange data with other devices over the internet with embedded sensors, software, and other technologies. Researchers consequently have focused on exploring flexible energy storage devices, such as flexible supercapacitators (FSCs), that are lightweight and safe and easily integrate Read more about Printed electronics offer the advantage of flexibility and low cost[…]
