Laser-induced graphene gets tough, with help



Posted: 12 Feb 2019 01:00 PM PST


Laser-induced graphene combines with many materials to make tough, conductive composites for wearable electronics, anti-icing, antimicrobial applications, sensors and water treatment.


Teaching self-driving cars to predict pedestrian movement



Posted: 12 Feb 2019 10:47 AM PST


By zeroing in on humans' gait, body symmetry and foot placement, researchers are teaching self-driving cars to recognize and predict pedestrian movements with greater precision than current technologies.


New AI toolkit is the 'scientist that never sleeps'



Posted: 12 Feb 2019 07:47 AM PST


Researchers have developed a new AI-driven platform that can analyze how pathogens infect our cells with the precision of a trained biologist.


Walking simulation games signal a new literary genre



Posted: 12 Feb 2019 07:47 AM PST


Walking simulation games signal a new literary genre Research has revealed that walking simulations are blurring the boundaries of different art forms to create a new literary genre. Walking simulations -- video games where there are no winners and no one is shot at or killed -- have become increasingly popular in the last few years.


Improving geothermal HVAC systems with mathematics



Posted: 12 Feb 2019 07:47 AM PST


Sustainable heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems, such as those that harness low-enthalpy geothermal energy, are needed to reduce collective energy use and mitigate the continued effects of a warming climate. Researchers use asymptotic expansion techniques to study the harmonic thermal response of vertical geothermal boreholes in such systems to sub-annual harmonic excitations.


Why bribery works and what changes its effectiveness



Posted: 12 Feb 2019 07:47 AM PST


A new study suggests that greed, and not the willingness to return the favor, is the main reason people give in to bribery. But the research also finds there are times when the almighty buck can be ignored and effects of a bribe can be lessened.


Questions in quantum computing: How to move electrons with light



Posted: 12 Feb 2019 06:48 AM PST


To design future quantum technologies, scientists pinpoint how microwaves interact with matter.


Selfies to self-diagnosis: Algorithm 'amps up' smartphones to diagnose disease



Posted: 12 Feb 2019 06:26 AM PST


Smartphones aren't just for selfies anymore. A novel cell phone imaging algorithm can now analyze assays typically evaluated via spectroscopy, a powerful device used in scientific research. Researchers analyzed more than 10,000 images and found that their method consistently outperformed existing algorithms under a wide range of operating field conditions. This technique reduces the need for bulky equipment and increases the precision of quantitative results.


Mosaic-like gene deletion and duplication pattern shaping the immune system discovered



Posted: 07 Feb 2019 04:51 AM PST


A team of researchers has developed a computational tool for analyzing genetic changes related to the immune system. With this new development, the onset of many autoimmune diseases, such as multiple sclerosis and celiac disease, infectious diseases, such as hepatitis C and flu, and various forms of cancer may be predicted.
