You’re already a little stressed out because you didn’t sleep well, woke up late, and have an important meeting in a couple hours, but you just don’t feel like your best self. Suddenly another …

On World EV Day, (9th September) drivers from more than 60 countries have made a firm commitment to transition to an electric vehicle The online pledge campaign, which was launched by ABB and Green.TV as part of World EV Day, encourages drivers to recognize the crucial role that electric vehicles (EVs) can play in advancing …

The demand for cheaper, greener electricity means that the energy landscape is changing faster than at any other point in history. This is particularly true of solar-powered electricity and battery storage. The cost of both has dropped at unprecedented rates over the past decade and energy efficient technologies such as LED lighting have also expanded. …

By partnering with Google, DeepMind is able to bring the benefits of AI to billions of people all over the world.  From reuniting a speech-impaired user with his original voice, to helping users discover personalised apps, we can apply breakthrough research to immediate real-world problems at a Google scale. Today we’re delighted to share the results of …

The upcoming US presidential election seems set to be something of a mess—to put it lightly. Covid-19 will likely deter millions from voting in person, and mail-in voting isn’t shaping up to be much more promising. This all comes at a time when political tensions are running higher than they have in decades, issues that …

Methods from scientific machine learning could address the challenges of testing the stability of rocket engines, researchers report. Time, cost, and safety prohibit testing the stability of a test rocket using a physical build “trial and error” approach. But even computational simulations are extremely time consuming. A single analysis of an entire SpaceX Merlin rocket …

Though 5G—a next-generation speed upgrade to wireless networks—is scarcely up and running (and still nonexistent in many places) researchers are already working on what comes next. It lacks an official name, but they’re calling it 6G for the sake of simplicity (and hey, it’s tradition). 6G promises to be up to 100 times faster than …

The Space Development Agency (SDA) awarded a Tranche 0 contract of the Space Transport Layer to Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) to demonstrate a mesh network of 10 small satellites that links terrestrial warfighting domains to space sensors – all launching in just two years. The $187.5-million contract for Transport Layer’s Tranche 0 is an initial test and …

We’re making TabNet available as a built-in algorithm on Google Cloud AI Platform, creating an integrated tool chain that makes it easier to run training jobs on your data without writing any code. TabNet combines the best of two worlds: it is explainable (similar to simpler tree-based models) while benefiting from high performance (similar to deep neural networks). This …

The developer of ICT solutions, Ruf Avatech, has designed a fever measuring camera suitable for use in crowds. This would allow up to 45 sick or infected people to be identified at the same time. Fever is one of the symptoms of Covid-19. With the fever measuring camera developed by Ruf Avatech, up to 45 …
