Internet of Things – The Smart Way to Smarten-up Cities?

Data plays a crucial role in analyzing patterns, habits and feeding machine learning systems. And, some companies are clearly making a mark in the world using clean technologies. For instance, Hudson Yards and Sidewalk Labs’ project are changing the way cities operate in a big way. Here it is pertinent to note that while the former is from New York, the latter is in Toronto. These test cases use data

Zero Gravity - The Robotic Takeover of China’s Satellite Building World

China is onto a robotic revolution. Working towards furthering advances in space, China is developing robotic arms. And, these are smooth, winning them the epithet of “Zero Gravity.” Besides, they work in total sync with humans. Functioning of Robotic Arms Explained: These use Artificial Intelligence (AI) and advanced sensors to perform heavy duty tasks. Together, these two components enable the arm to grip and lift. This information comes from the

Choosing the Right AI Model – An Executive’s Guide

It is no surprise that AI is transforming how businesses operate. But, what most CIOs forget is that it is not a magic wand. Thus, the clamor for quick results need containment. For one, it is a long road, and with many bumps. And, to ensure AI results are encouraging, it is crucial to figure which models truly fit the bill. Thinking of one size fits all? Well, time to

Science Can Redefine the Fuel Market

The fossil fuel reserves are depleting at a rapid scale today. They are exhausting at a scale wherein next 20 years, there shall be none remaining for the use. This, as a result, stimulates the scientists to develop devices that can harness the energy from non-exhaustible sources. Wind and biomass have been the flag bearer a renewable source of energy and are providing impeccable results. However, these sources are unable

Old Meets New: Scientists Merge AI with 400 Year Old Microscopy

Study of human cell’s behavior is one of the most daunting studies for any researcher. This is because of the uncertainty of the cell’s reaction to any drug. This is the very reason that makes drug development is so difficult. Additionally, the complexity posed by the uniqueness of cells in different bodies also makes the task a bit more daunting. However, researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology

Smart Toilets to Conduct Urine Testing Are Here!

Yes, smart technology is making its way in every aspect of our life. However, technology like smart wearable and smartphones can only go so far. These devices often do not have access to in-depth information about us. So perhaps, smart toilets are the way to better monitor health. This is what scientists at Wisconsin-Madison and Morgridge Institute of Research believe. They conducted urine tests using smart toilets over a 10-day

Building Biologically Active Compounds Using Light

Certain biologically active compounds contain isoquinuclidine, a chemical structure containing nitrogen. And, these compounds are inclusive of synthetic drugs. Here, it is worthy to note that the certain aspects of the structure. First and foremost, it is three-dimensional and that allows interaction with proteins and enzymes more favorably than with two-dimensional molecules. But, certain drawbacks associated with making isoquinuclidines and dehyrdoisoquinuclidines make discovery of new medicinal compounds tough. But, thanks

Electronic Sniffers to Determine the Health of the Dogs

Dogs are the most loyal animal humans can have as a pet. Once you give them your heart and they’ll protect it till their last breath. However, it gets difficult for humans to determine the health of these animals. For instance, if a dog gets infected by a sandfly, it is a daunting task to determine its health. The worst part is, this infection can transfer to humans which results

 Voice Technology

Objects and human beings have had long-lasting affair. Sophisticated software and simple tools all comprise extensions of human bodies. The creation of sophisticated tools is a mark to trace human well-being and progress. As tools are so vital for our prosperity and existence, the techniques of interfacing have gained substantial significance. The interface between machines and humans is very important that as soon as a brand new medium is developed

Innovation in Microscopy Promises Glowing Prize for Researchers

A team of researchers from UCLA have found a new technique to expand the capabilities of fluorescence microscopy. The new technique will enable scientists to identify living and tissues with a glowing mechanism with the help of 3D imaging. The new techniques uses dyes which glow under special lighting and turn two-dimensional images into stacks of virtual three-dimensional slices. The study published in Nature Methods can be a new lease
