🗞 TECHNOLOGY NEWS💻🔧🖥:
A RECURRENT NEURAL NETWORK THAT INFERS THE GLOBAL TEMPORAL STRUCTURE BASED ON LOCAL EXAMPLES
Most computer systems are designed to store and manipulate information, such as documents, images, audio files and other data. While conventional computers are programmed to perform specific operations on structured data, emerging neuro-inspired systems can learn to solve tasks more adaptively, without having to be engineered to carry out a set type of operations.
RESEARCHERS CREATE A CAMERA THAT KNOWS EXACTLY WHERE IT IS
Researchers from the University of Bristol have demonstrated how a new special type of camera can build a pictorial map of where it has been and use this map to know where it currently is, something that will be incredibly useful in the development of smart sensors, driverless cars and robotics.
MAKING BATTERIES LIVE LONGER WITH ULTRATHIN LITHIUM
Our lives today are governed by electronics in all shapes and forms. Electronics, in turn, are governed by their batteries. However, the traditional lithium-ion batteries (LIBs), that are widely used in electronic devices, are falling out of favor because researchers are beginning to view lithium metal batteries (LMBs) as a superior alternative due to their remarkably high energy density that exceeds LIBs by an order of magnitude. The key difference lies in the choice of anode material: LIBs use graphite, whereas LMBs use lithium metal.
🗞 PHYSICS NEWS⚙♨:
WHY DEEP FREEZING IRON-BASED MATERIALS MAKES THEM BOTH MAGNETIC AND SUPERCONDUCTING
Physicists at the University of Bath in the UK, in collaboration with researchers from the USA, have uncovered a new mechanism for enabling magnetism and superconductivity to co-exist in the same material. Until now, scientists could only guess how this unusual coexistence might be possible. The discovery could lead to applications in green energy technologies and in the development of superconducting devices, such as next-generation computer hardware.
RESEARCHERS DEMONSTRATE A QUANTUM ADVANTAGE
Quantum computing and quantum sensing have the potential to be vastly more powerful than their classical counterparts. Not only could a fully realized quantum computer take just seconds to solve equations that would take a classical computer thousands of years, but it could have incalculable impacts on areas ranging from biomedical imaging to autonomous driving.
LIGHT-SHRINKING MATERIAL LETS ORDINARY MICROSCOPE SEE IN SUPER RESOLUTION
Electrical engineers at the University of California San Diego developed a technology that improves the resolution of an ordinary light microscope so that it can be used to directly observe finer structures and details in living cells.
🗞 EARTH NEWS🌏:
GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS FROM RESERVOIRS HIGHER THAN PREVIOUSLY EXPECTED
A new study in Global Biogeochemical Cycles shows per-area greenhouse gas emissions from the world’s water reservoirs are around 29% higher than suggested by previous studies, but that practical measures could be taken to help reduce that impact.
CryoSat REVEALS ICE LOSS FROM GLACIERS IN ALASKA AND ASIA.
As our climate warms, ice melting from glaciers around the world is one of main causes of sea-level rise. As well as being a major contributor to this worrying trend, the loss of glacier ice also poses a direct threat to hundreds of millions of people relying on glacier runoff for drinking water and irrigation. With monitoring mountain glaciers clearly important for these reasons and more, new research, based on information from ESA’s CryoSat mission, shows how much ice has been lost from mountain glaciers in the Gulf Alaska and in High Mountain Asia since 2010.
RESEARCH SHEDS LIGHT ON ORIGINS, AGE OF MASSIVE IMPACT CRATER
Hidden beneath a kilometer of ice in northwestern Greenland, an impact crater that could swallow a city the size of London, Ont. is the subject of much debate about its origins and age.
🗞 ASTRONOMY & SPACE NEWS🌪🎇:
FAST IS PROMISING IN INTERPLANETARY SCINTILLATION OBSERVATION
The radio signal from a distant compact radio source is scattered by the density inhomogeneities of the solar wind, and consequently a random diffraction pattern is observed on the Earth.
STUDY REVEALS DIVERSE MAGNETIC FIELDS IN SOLAR-TYPE STAR FORMING CORES
Magnetic fields are ubiquitous throughout the Milky Way galaxy and play a crucial role in all dynamics of interstellar medium. However, questions like how solar-type stars form out of magnetized molecular clouds, whether the role of magnetic fields changes at various scales and densities of molecular clouds, and what factors can change the morphology of magnetic fields in low-mass dense cores still remain unclear.
ASKAP TAKES A FIRST GLIMPSE AT THE GALACTIC PLANE
With the findings detailed in two Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society papers, a group of astronomers, led by the Italian National Institute of Astrophysics (INAF) and Macquarie University, reported the first radio observations toward the galactic plane using the Australian SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP), developed and managed by CSIRO—Australia’s national science agency. The region mapped by the researchers includes the entire area of the Stellar Continuum Originating from Radio Physics In Ourgalaxy (SCORPIO) survey, one of the exploration projects of the Evolutionary Map of the Universe (EMU) program, which will use the new ASKAP telescope to make a census of radio sources of the whole southern hemisphere.
🗞 NANOTECHNOLOGY NEWS⛄☃:
A NEW SOFT ELECTRONIC MATERIAL FOR HUMAN-MACHINE INTERFACING
Researchers at DTU Health Tech have developed a new material that can facilitate a near-perfect merger between machines and the human body for diagnostics and treatment.
NANO-ENCAPSULATION FOR EFFICIENT DELIVERY IN PARKINSON’S TREATMENT
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a common neurodegenerative disorder caused by the death of dopaminergic neurons in a part of the brain (known as substantia nigra pars compacta), which leads to a deficit of dopamine (DA), one of the main neurotransmitters active in the central nervous system. Symptomatic treatment focuses on increasing the concentration of dopamine into the brain.
SELF-AWARE MATERIALS BUILD THE FOUNDATION FOR LIVING STRUCTURES
From the biggest bridges to the smallest medical implants, sensors are everywhere, and for good reason: The ability to sense and monitor changes before they become problems can be both cost-saving and life-saving.
