Researchers to Launch a Report on APIs and Privacy

Researchers from the University of Michigan and Fordham Law School, associated with AT&T, are willing to help people understand better about Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). API allows data sharing, which leaves a person’s data exposed and easy to breaches, just like on Facebook and Google. On February 5 in Washington, D.C. at the AT&T Policy Forum’s Symposium, researchers from the U.S. have presented their study on “APIs and Your Privacy

Using Pig Organs in Humans, an Innovation to Solve the Organ Shortage

The U.S. has 114,000 sick patients on its organ transplant list. However, according the United Network for Organ Sharing, every year almost 8000 people die waiting for the organs. There are positive developments taking place, such as start-ups building machines to keep the donor’s organs alive till the surgery is done. This will improve the organ’s count and lessen its death until the transplant happens. Another invention where researchers are

Now Virtual Reality to Help Design Cars, Ford Experiments

American automaker Ford develops technology for the design of cars for virtual reality. A 3D model of a race car with an interior and exterior, turbot and hybrid driven powertrain has been developed as the first example for the production of cars with technology. Design has come a long way since the early days when designers had just used pen and paper. Today’s software supports designers, some of which also

Invisible Plastic Made Possible with Use of Antireflection Coating

Antireflection (AR) coatings have a variety of practical uses, including glare reduction in eyeglasses, computer monitors and outdoor displays on your smartphone. Researchers at the University of Penn have now developed an antireflection coating to improve existing coatings to virtually invisible transparent plastics like Plexiglas. The approach involved focusing light on small, highly efficient plastic solar cells while reducing their loss of reflection. Their anti-reflection layer worked well over the

Microsoft Trying to Improve Facial Recognition

Microsoft Corporation is adopting ethical practices for integrating artificial intelligence-based facial recognition technology in their devices. This helps to lower risks of partial outcomes and ensures the privacy to meet up the regulations imposed by the government. In December 2018, the company checked on the regulations that the government is looking to impose on facial recognition. Brad Smith, Microsoft’s President said that the company is trying to set an example

A Newly Found Internal Structure of Corn Could Help to Improve Production of Ethanol

New research in the US’s important plant – corn – has observed varied internal structures. These structures will likely to help for optimizing conversion process of the corn into ethanol. The economy of the country majorly depends upon the ethanol, but, the researchers haven’t explored the internal structure of the corn. Tuo Wang, Assistant Professor at LSU Department of Chemistry said that almost gasoline contains 10% of the ethanol. In

A New Machine Learning Method for Identifying Fake Honey

A researcher’s team at Imperial College London and UCL has developed a method for authenticating machine learning. This technique that can detect mislabelled honey was published in the paper published on the arXiv. Honey is one of the fabricated food products that can be mislabelled and can lead to selling wrong products or diluted product. Gerard Glowacki, one of the researchers said that honey plant-derived product, which contains different pollens.

Researchers Examines Melt Flow Behavior to Improve Welding Process

Recently, combined research was conducted, where the researchers from the Delft University of Technology, the University of Leicester, University College Dublin, Diamond Light Source, and TATA Steel Research UK worked together. Professor Hongbiao Dong from the University of Leicester’s Department of Engineering headed the research. He showed ways to optimize additive manufacturing and arc welding at a relatively less price with more efficiency by exploring its internal flow behavior. The

New Floodplain Zoning Developed that Processes Topographic Datasets in Minutes

Enrique Vivoni, a hydrologist from the School of Earth and Space Exploration and ASU professor has come up with a first exhaustive high-resolution map of Earth’s floodplain. A team of scientists has also accompanied them in carrying out this study. Floodplains play a crucial role in economic activities, population centers, and transportation; therefore, it is essential to identify their extents. This new Earth’s floodplains one can categorize the human footprint

Now Secure the IoT devices with Open Source Software

Nowadays people are more fascinated toward smart devices that can track their habits and interact with them through an app. For this reason, internet of things (IoT) devices is facing more risks, as industries launch them unprepared. Moreover, every now and then they see new breaches in IoT products. However, since this technology is in trend, it looks like IoT is the future. Therefore, industries need to identify the problems
