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

Focus on 3 Dimensions to improve Food Security after Natural Calamity

Aftereffects of natural disasters have considerable impact on food supplies, especially in Asian regions. To solve these problems, scientists at Colorado State University (CSU) have come up with an approach known as an ‘approximate dynamic programming’. Adopting this approach, the communities affected by natural calamities can improve the household food security. Studies by CSU also revealed the link between disruption in civil infrastructure and failures in food distribution. Natural calamities

Now Keeping Track of Blood Flow in Artery is Easier

It is often difficult to track the first sign of surgery success on veins. Before anyone could know, patient might undergo for a second surgery, with risks similar to the one in the first surgery. To overcome this risk, a team of Stanford scientists has invented a biodegradable wireless battery-free sensor. This device will help keep track of the flow of blood in an artery. Moreover, it will assist doctors

Advances in Phononic Devices pave way to Next-Gen Communication Tech

Have you ever thought about a microscopic component that can pave way to next-generation phononic devices, quantum computing, and sensors? Yes, scientists of this generation have helped conceptualize it. A research group from Caltech, U.S., developed a unique component for mobile devices known as phononic devices. This device can move 10 million times per second back and forth, and is able to vibrate extremely fast. Today, mobile devices use an
