Iseult Project’s 11.7 Tesla MRI machine has taken remarkable anatomical images of the live human brain from participants. This is the first study of live human brain by an MRI machine of such high magnetic field strength that has yielded...
UKRI has launched WAIfinder, an online tool to showcase AI capability in the UK and to increase connections across the UK Artificial Intelligence R&D ecosystem. In order to to make navigating the UK’s artificial intelligence R & D ecosystem...
Scientists have developed a 3D bioprinting platform that assembles functional human neural tissues. The progenitor cells in the printed tissues grow to form neural circuits and make functional connections with other neurons thus mimicking natural brain tissues. This is...
The first website in the world was/is http://info.cern.ch/  This was conceived and developed at European Council for Nuclear Research (CERN), Geneva by Timothy Berners-Lee, (better known as Tim Berners-Lee) for automated information-sharing between scientists and research institutions around the world....
Lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles (EVs) face safety and stability issues due to overheating of separators, short circuits and reduced efficiency. With an aim to mitigate these shortcomings, researchers used a graft polymerization technique and developed innovative silica nanoparticles...
Betavolt Technology, a Beijing based company has announced miniaturization of nuclear battery using Ni-63 radioisotope and diamond semiconductor (fourth generation semiconductor) module.   Nuclear battery (known variously as atomic battery or radioisotope battery or radioisotope generator or radiation-voltaic battery or Betavoltaic battery)...
Scientists have successfully integrated latest AI tools (e.g. GPT-4) with automation to develop ‘systems’ capable of autonomously designing, planning and performing complex chemical experiments. ‘Coscientist’ and ‘ChemCrow’ are two such AI-based systems developed recently that display emergent capabilities. Driven...
Wearable devices have become prevalent and are increasingly gaining ground. These devices usually interface biomaterials with electronics. Some wearable electro-magnetic devices act as mechanical energy harvesters to supply energy. Currently, no “direct electro-genetic interface” is available. Hence, wearable devices...
Neuralink is an implantable device that has shown significant improvement over others in that it supports flexible cellophane-like conductive wires inserted into the tissue using a “sewing machine” surgical robot. This technology can help alleviate diseases of the brain (depression, Alzheimer’s,...
The scientists have developed a suitable material for use in thermo-electric generators based on ‘anomalous Nernst effect (ANE)’ that increases the voltage generating efficiency manifold. These devices can be comfortably worn in flexible shapes and sizes to power small...
Researchers have adapted living cells and created novel living machines. Called xenobot, these are not a new species of animals but pure artefacts, designed to serve human needs in future. If biotechnology and genetic engineering were disciplines promising immense potential...
Scientists from MIT have sensitized existing silicon solar cells by singlet exciton fission method. This can increase efficiency of solar cells from 18 percent to as high as 35 percent thus doubling energy output thereby reducing costs of solar...
Scientists from Stanford University have developed a prototype of auto-focusing eyeglasses which automatically focus on where the wearer is looking. It can help correct presbyopia, a gradual age-related loss of near vision faced by people of 45+ age group. Autofocals provide...
Scientists have designed a new chest-laminated, ultrathin, 100 percent stretchable cardiac sensing electronic device (e-tattoo) to monitor heart functions. The device can measure ECG, SCG (seismocardiogram) and cardiac time intervals accurately and continuously for longer duration to monitor blood...
Medical scientists from University of Pennsylvania have found that medical conditions could be predicted from contents of social media posts Social media is now an integral part of our lives. In 2019, at least 2.7 billion people regularly use online...
Scientists have for the first time created an injectable hydrogel which beforehand incorporates tissue-specific bioactive molecules via novel crosslinkers. The hydrogel described has strong potential for usage in tissue engineering Tissue engineering is the development of tissue and organ substitutes...
Scientists have designed a nature-inspired carbon tube aerogel thermal insulating material based upon the microstructure of polar bear hair. This lightweight, highly-elastic and more efficient heat insulator opens up new avenues for energy-efficient building insulation Polar bear hair helps the...
Study has developed a novel digital meditation practice software which can help healthy young adults to improve and sustain their attention span In today’s fast paced life where swiftness and multitasking are becoming a norm, adults especially young adults are...
Study describes a novel portable solar-steaming collection system with polymer origami which can collect and purify water at a very low cost There is an increasing global demand for clean water owing to population growth, industrialization and contamination and depletion...
Study describes a novel all-perovskite tandem solar cell which has the potential to provide inexpensive and more efficient way to harness Sun’s energy to generate electrical power Our reliance on non-renewable source of energy called fossil fuels such as coal,...
This short articles explains what is biocatalysis, its mportance and how it can be used for the benefit of mankind and the environment. The objective of this brief article is to make the reader aware of the importance of biocatalysis...
A new innovative injector which can deliver medications to difficult locations of the body has been tested in animal models Needles are the most important tool in medicine as they are indispensable in delivering countless medications inside our body. The...
Researchers have built a large virtual docking library which would assist in rapidly discovering new drugs and therapeutics To develop new drugs and medications for illnesses, a potential way is to ‘screen’ a large number of therapeutic molecules and generate...
Studies show how existing smartphone technology can be used to predict and control infectious and non-infectious diseases The demand and popularity of smartphones is on the rise worldwide as it is an excellent way to connect. Smartphones are being used...
Study shows for the first time an innovative self-powered heart pacemaker tested successfully in pigs Our heart maintains a pace through its internal pacemaker called sinoatrial node (SA node), also called sinus node located in the upper right chamber. This...
