Optical fibers that can
Optical fibers that can "feel" the materials around them
EPFL researchers have developed an optical fiber capable of detecting what sort of material or liquid they have come into contact with. Their research has been published. In recent years optical fibers have served as sensors to detect changes in temperature, like a thermometer, and pressure, like an artificial nerve.

Burns' works authenticated by new, minimally destructive scientific technique
Burns’ works authenticated by new, minimally destructive scientific technique
Authenticating historic manuscripts can be a complicated and at times destructive process, with parts of the paper or ink damaged. However, a cross-disciplinary team of researchers from the University of Glasgow have found a novel way to accurately authenticate ancient documents in a minimally destructive way.

The Prince of Wales visits the Birmingham Institute of Forest Research
A three-year research project led by a University of Birmingham academic, working with colleagues from Goldsmiths and University College London, has indicated that virtual reality (VR) could become a vital tool for training General Practitioners (GPs) to look out for hard-to-detect signs of child abuse.

Doctors rely on more than just data for medical decision making
Many technology companies are working on artificial intelligence systems that can analyze medical data to help diagnose or treat health problems. Such systems raise the question of whether this kind of technology can perform as well as a human doctor. A new study from MIT computer scientists suggests that human doctors provide a dimension that, as yet, artificial intelligence does not.

Ramamoorthy Ramesh To Lead
Ramamoorthy Ramesh To Lead "Beyond Moore’s Law" Initiative
After serving four years as Berkeley Lab's Associate Director for Energy Technologies, Ramamoorthy Ramesh will be returning to his research in ultra low-power electronics while also helping to lead a major Berkeley Lab research initiative in next-generation, energy-efficient microelectronics. This new initiative has been dubbed "Beyond Moore's Law," as it seeks the solution to what will happen when Moore's Law - which holds that the number of transistors on a chip will double about every two years - comes to an inevitable end as physical limitations are reached.

Mobile Phone Radiation may Affect Memory Performance in Adolescents
Mobile Phone Radiation may Affect Memory Performance in Adolescents
Radiofrequency electromagnetic fields may have adverse effects on the development of memory performance of specific brain regions exposed during mobile phone use. These are the findings of a study involving nearly 700 adolescents in Switzerland. The investigation, led by the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute (Swiss TPH), will be published on Monday, 23 July 2018 in the peer-reviewed journal Environmental Health Perspectives.

Robot chemist discovers new molecules and reactions
Robot chemist discovers new molecules and reactions
A new type of artificial-intelligence-driven chemistry could revolutionise the way molecules are discovered, scientists claim. In a new paper published today in the journal Nature , chemists from the University of Glasgow discuss how they have trained an artificially-intelligent organic chemical synthesis robot to automatically explore a very large number of chemical reactions.

Forget joysticks, use your torso to pilot drones
Your torso is more intuitive - and more precise - than joysticks for piloting drones, both simulated and real, according to a recent study by EPFL scientists. Work is already underway to implement this new body-machine-interface technology for search and rescue with drones. Imagine piloting a drone using the movements of your torso only and leaving your head free to look around, much like a bird.

Study suggests buried internet infrastructure at risk as sea levels rise
Thousands of miles of buried fiber optic cable in densely populated coastal regions of the United States may soon be inundated by rising seas, according to a new study by researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Oregon. The study, presented here today (July 16, 2018) at a meeting of internet network researchers, portrays critical communications infrastructure that could be submerged by rising seas in as soon as 15 years, according to the study's senior author, Paul Barford , a UW-Madison professor of computer science.

Yihong Wu creates new tools for digging into data
Somewhere, buried deep inside mountains of information, awaits the human dimension of data. It's the small subset of material that, when properly selected, sheds light on something important, such as public policy or DNA sequencing. This is the scientific territory where Yihong Wu, a Yale assistant professor of statistics and data science, has set up shop.

New predictive tool to improve human - machine interactions in digital manufacturing
As manufacturing shifts towards smart factories, with interconnected production systems and automation, engineers at the University of Nottingham are leading a £1.9m project to develop a predictive toolkit to optimise productivity and communication between human workers and robots. DigiTOP is one of seven national projects to create novel digital tools, techniques and processes to support the translation of digital capabilities into the manufacturing sector, funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

Galileos in the sky
ESA Space in Images An augmented reality view of Galileo satellites in the sky close to ESA's technical centre in the Netherlands. It comes from a Galileo-focused satnav app for Android smartphones, developed by ESA engineers. ESA ran an internal competition for its trainees to develop an app capable of making positioning fixes using only Galileo satellites.

A Software to See How Fish See
Software for behavioral studies in fish made freely available by Tübingen neuroscientists Zebrafish have been one of the most important animal models in neuro-science for only a few years. Laboratory equipment and software for studying their behavior is therefore often highly specialized and expensive.

NOvA Experiment Sees Strong Evidence for Antineutrino Oscillation
Note: This story was originally published by Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. View the original release. How do you arrive at the physical laws of the universe when you're given experimental data on a renegade particle that interacts so rarely with matter, it can cruise through light-years of lead? You call on the power of advanced computing.

Self-learning bionic hand could spark ’new generation’ of prosthetic limbs
The new prosthetic hand interprets muscular signals from brain activity with machine learning to make movements more natural. Scientists at Imperial College London and the University of Göttingen have used machine learning to improve the performance of prosthetic hands. The new bionic hand is not only more natural but it is also superior in terms of functionality in daily tasks than what's currently available to patients.

Scientists Can Predict Intelligence from Brain Scans
Scientists Can Predict Intelligence from Brain Scans
If you've ever lied about your IQ to seem more intelligent, it's time to fess up. Scientists can now tell how smart you are just by looking at a scan of your brain. Actually, to be more precise, the scientists themselves aren't looking at your brain scan; a machine-learning algorithm they've developed is.
