Learnings from Battery & Energy Day Two
The event Battery & Energy Dec 4-5 Coventry University ended with a second day of presentations and discussion panels.
Low cost technology to print sensors enabling smart contact lenses
VSPARTICLE announced its low-cost technology to print nanostructured materials that will finally enable applications such as smart contact lenses to succeed. The nanotech company has developed an additive manufacturing technology that can be used for numerous applications, such as producing real-time medical sensors (glucose sensing, bio-marker sensing, etc.), as well as, accurate gas sensors.
Machine learning simulates everyday task of dressing
Computer scientists have devised a novel computational method, driven by machine learning techniques, to successfully and realistically simulate the multi-step process of putting on clothes.
IDTechEx Wearable USA 2018 Award Winners
Each year at the IDTechEx Show!, two companies are honoured for their achievements in developing and commercialising different aspects of wearable technology. This year the awards were judged by Heidi Dohse (Google) with support from the independent analyst team with IDTechEx Research.
VivaLNK and RB launch electronic skin patches for fever monitoring
Earlier this week, VivaLNK formally announced partnership with Reckitt Benckiser (RB) to distribute a wearable continuous temperature monitor worldwide.
NADINE: Power-plant-scale energy storage
Energy storage systems that are able to cope with fluctuating wind and solar power production are indispensable for the success of the energy transition. So far, however, location-independent and low-cost power-plant-scale storage systems have still been lacking.
First fully autonomous indoor farm
Iron Ox, a robotics company reinventing farming from the ground up, has launched the world's first autonomous farm. The indoor farm is focused on increasing the availability, quality and flavor of leafy greens.
AI tool accurately identifies cancer type and genetic changes
A new computer program can analyze images of patients' lung tumors, specify cancer types, and even identify altered genes driving abnormal cell growth, a new study shows.
Makani is a California based technology company that develops airborne wind energy (AWE) systems.
Forecasting earthquake aftershocks with AI
From hurricanes and floods to volcanoes and earthquakes, the Earth is continuously evolving in fits and spurts of dramatic activity. Earthquakes and subsequent tsunamis alone have caused massive destruction in the last decade.
Robo reef protector to save the Great Barrier Reef
An underwater drone that can keep watch on reef health and accurately identify and inject the devastating crown-of-thorns starfish is ready to be put to the test on the Great Barrier Reef, as a result of a collaboration between QUT, Google and the Great Barrier Reef.
World's first hearing aid with integrated sensors and AI
Livio AI is the world's first hearing aid to utilize integrated sensors and artificial intelligence and the first device to track physical activity and cognitive health as measured by hearing aid use in social situations.
The graphene community gathers in California
The graphene community will gather in California on November 14 & 15 to attend the largest business-focused conference and exhibition on Graphene and 2D Materials which takes place in Santa Clara.
Major milestone for the treatment of eye disease
AI system can quickly interpret eye scans from routine clinical practice with unprecedented accuracy and correctly recommend how patients should be referred for treatment for over 50 sight-threatening eye diseases as accurately as world-leading expert doctors.
5G will change the way to get TV and internet at home
You are probably used to watching a video or listening to the radio via your smartphone, or to be more specific, 4G LTE however 5G technology will revolutionise the way you get TV and internet at home.
QuirkLogic Drives Innovation Through Remote Collaboration
New Quilla Connect Android app seamlessly connects to world's largest portable digital writing solution enabling contributions from remote meeting participants.
Controlling drones via voice channels
The future is airborne. Drones may soon become the key to relieving the burden of traffic on our streets, optimizing deliveries, and improving the safety and efficiency of firefighting. But there are still a few hurdles to cross before the technology reaches the maturity required for large-scale commercial roll-out.
New way to store wind and solar electricity on a large scale
A new combination of materials may aid in developing a rechargeable battery able to store the large amounts of renewable power created through wind or solar sources. With further development, the new technology could deliver energy to the electric grid quickly, cost effectively and at normal ambient temperatures.
