Artificial intelligence helps measure sunlight

Artificial intelligence helps measure sunlight

A Saudi Arabian scientist has developed a new tool that can efficiently predict availability of solar rays at different locations in the kingdom and elsewhere in the Middle East. His model can help fellow scientists and solar operators make the best possible plans to harvest energy from the sun. This new software-based tool predicts theRead more about Artificial intelligence helps measure sunlight[…]

Data on stolen mobile can be destroyed remotely

Data on stolen mobile can be destroyed remotely

Scientists have developed a tiny embedded system that could remotely destroy the memory of stolen or hacked electronic devices such as mobile phones, laptops and pen drives to prevent data theft1. “This system could be integrated with state-of-the-art high-performance silicon chips, making it potentially useful for protecting data in various fields such as intelligence, nationalRead more about Data on stolen mobile can be destroyed remotely[…]

Liquid biopsy to hunt down deadly tumours

Liquid biopsy to hunt down deadly tumours

Researchers have developed a system that can detect, capture and remove tumour cells circulating in the peripheral bloodstream, making it potentially useful for diagnosing and treating cancers. Primary tumours shed cells which circulate in the bloodstream, eventually forming masses in organs, a process known as metastasis. Circulating tumour cells are promising cancer biomarkers. Using magneticRead more about Liquid biopsy to hunt down deadly tumours[…]

A simple technique to fiddle with silver atoms

A simple technique to fiddle with silver atoms

Organic ions or molecules that bind to the surface of noble metal nanoclusters are known as ligands. Usually, these ligands are modified to allow for tailoring the nanoclusters leading to potential practical applications. So far, however, it has not been well understood how modifying the ligand alters the electronic and optical properties of the metalRead more about A simple technique to fiddle with silver atoms[…]
