IISc researchers produce a better water purification membrane

IISc researchers produce a better water purification membrane | 08/30/2016 Going a step further, a team of researchers from IISc Bangalore has improved upon the water purification membrane they developed in 2014. The membrane allows higher flow rate across it and kills nearly 99 per cent of E. Coli present in water. The results of the study were published recently in the journal Nanoscale. Instead of … Continue reading IISc researchers produce a better water purification membrane

Earth’s temperature dropped during solar eclipse

Earth’s temperature dropped during solar eclipse | 08/23/2016 A study revealed that the temperature of the Earth dropped during last year’s eclipse of the sun, Britain’s Met office has said.The Met Office on Monday said it was the first time that satellites had been used to monitor surface “skin” temperatures during a total solar eclipse, Xinhua news agency reported. The research showed the eclipse on … Continue reading Earth’s temperature dropped during solar eclipse

Technology produces clean-burning hydrogen fuel ch

Technology produces clean-burning hydrogen fuel ch Nitesh | 29/01/2015 A new technology based on carbon nanotubes promises commercially viable hydrogen production from water. The new technology is a novel catalyst that performs almost as well as cost-prohibitive platinum for so-called electrolysis reactions, which use electric currents to split water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen. The Rutgers technology is also far more efficient than less-expensive catalysts … Continue reading Technology produces clean-burning hydrogen fuel ch

New quantum approach to big data

New quantum approach to big data Geeta | 29/01/2015 Machine learning systems can help researchers deal with this ever-growing flood of information. Some of the most powerful of these analytical tools are based on a strange branch of geometry called topology, which deals with properties that stay the same even when something is bent and stretched every which way. Continue reading New quantum approach to big data

Diesel Is Now Better Than Gas

Diesel Is Now Better Than Gas Modern diesel cars emit less pollution generally than cars that run on gasoline, says a new six-nation study published today in Scientific Reports whose groundwork was laid in part by an American chemist now working at Université de Montréal. And since diesel is so much cleaner than before, environmental regulators should increasingly shift their focus to dirtier gasoline-powered cars and other … Continue reading Diesel Is Now Better Than Gas

BRIEF: 5G Internet is the Next Big Thing in Light Pollution

BRIEF: 5G Internet is the Next Big Thing in Light Pollution The fast-growing next-gen mobile network may threaten future radio astronomers’ ability to detect signals from space During last week’s American Astronomical Society meeting in National Harbor, Maryland, astronomers detailed the rise of a new and unexpected source of light pollution: radio waves. Although the human eye can’t see them, the waves are an important … Continue reading BRIEF: 5G Internet is the Next Big Thing in Light Pollution

Will Passengers Ever Fly on Pilotless Planes?

Will Passengers Ever Fly on Pilotless Planes? The technology is progressing quickly, but the main challenge may be overcoming our fears. Autonomous cars from companies like Google, Uber and Tesla will soon become commonplace on our roads, according to some experts, and aircraft manufacturers are betting that it will only be a matter of time before the skies are filled with autonomous planes as well. … Continue reading Will Passengers Ever Fly on Pilotless Planes?

A New Way of Making Plastic Could Help Boost Recycling

A New Way of Making Plastic Could Help Boost Recycling An improved process for recycling plastic, researchers say, might lead the world to view the material as a valuable raw material rather than waste. BY MATT SMITH    PUBLISHED ON 04/26/2018 A new process for making plastics might help break down one of the barriers to recycling, researchers at a Colorado university say. Plastics are formed … Continue reading A New Way of Making Plastic Could Help Boost Recycling

New A.I. application can write its own code

New A.I. application can write its own code Computer scientists have created a deep-learning, software-coding application that can help human programmers navigate the growing multitude of often-undocumented application programming interfaces, or APIs. Designing applications that can program computers is a long-sought grail of the branch of computer science called artificial intelligence (AI). The new application, called Bayou, came out of an initiative aimed at extracting … Continue reading New A.I. application can write its own code
