Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have developed an advanced nanomaterial-based biosensing platform that detects, within seconds, antibodies specific to SARS-CoV-2 or the coronavirus. It also helps to assess patient immunological response to the new vaccine. The study, published in the journal Advanced Materials, is Carnegie Mellon’s collaboration with the University of Pittsburgh (Pitt) and the UPMC. The testing platform identifies ...

Soon Computers to Understand Human Language Too

Indian-origin researcher at the University of Liverpool has developed a set of algorithms to teach computers to process and understand human languages, making them more interactive and taking the task of translation beyond the confines of human skill alone. Whilst mastering technical process is easy for computers, learning and understanding human language is not achieved by programmers of computers so ...

Inspired by Bats, New Unmanned Air Vehicles to Make Debut in 5 Years

Inspired by bats, researchers from the University of Southampton have designed innovative membrane wings, paving the way for a new type of unmanned Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs) with improved aerodynamic properties, which can fly over long distances and cost less. The wings work like artificial muscles, changing shape in response to the forces they experience and have no mechanical parts, ...

Ohio Researchers Develop First Aqueous Solar Flow Battery that Saves 20% Energy, Hope 80% Next

Ohio researchers, who are leading in solar cell research, have come out with patent-pending design that clubs together a battery and a solar cell into one device, achieving 20 percent energy saving over lithium iodine batteries. Their design consists of a solid solar panel sheet instead of a mesh and it uses a water-based electrolyte inside the battery. The saving ...
