Ynvisble Strengthens Board of Directors
Ynvisible Interactive Inc is pleased to announce the appointment of Michael Robinson and Leif Ljungqvist as new independent members of its Board of Directors.
Elephant trunks inspire robotics
Understanding how elephants use their trunks to pick up small objects could lead to robots designed with flexible hands or grippers, according to a new study.
Speech recognition system helps preserve Seneca language
A new research project will help ensure the endangered language of the Seneca Indian Nation will be preserved. Using deep learning, a form of artificial intelligence, researchers are building an automatic speech recognition application to document and transcribe the traditional language of the Seneca people.

Environmental & health impact of lithium-ion batteries for EVs
Lithium-ion batteries used to power plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles show overall promise to "fuel" these vehicles and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but there are areas for improvement to reduce possible environmental and public health impacts, according to a "cradle to grave" study of advanced Li-ion batteries recently completed by Abt Associates for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Multi-junction solar cell to break efficiency barrier
U.S. Naval Research Laboratory scientists in the Electronics Technology and Science Division, in collaboration with the Imperial College London and MicroLink Devices, Inc., Niles, Ill., have proposed a novel triple-junction solar cell with the potential to break the 50 percent conversion efficiency barrier, which is the current goal in multi-junction photovoltaic development.
Dr. Michael Carmody joins Intrinsiq Materials
Intrinsiq continue to strengthen their conductive inks formulation and printed electronics application team .
Research team assesses environmental impact of organic solar cells
Solar energy could be a central alternative to petroleum-based energy production. However, current solar-cell technology often does not produce the same energy yield and is more expensive to mass-produce.
