Automatic neurological disease diagnosis using deep learning
A team of researchers developed MNet, an automatic diagnosis system for neurological diseases using magnetoencephalography, demonstrating the possibility of making automatic neurological disease diagnoses.
Proofreading the book of life: Gene editing made safer
Making CRISPR immunosilent is the next step towards safe clinical applications.
Robots that can sort recycling
Every year trash companies sift through an estimated 68 million tons of recycling, which is the weight equivalent of more than 30 million cars.
AI to accurately predict the useful life of batteries
Wouldn't it be nice if battery manufacturers could tell which of their batteries will last at least two years and sell those to mobile phone makers, and which will last for ten years or more and sell those to electric vehicle manufacturers? New collaborative research shows how they could start doing that.

World's first full-size, autonomous electric bus
Nanyang Technological University, Singapore and Volvo Buses have launched the world's first full size, autonomous electric bus. The single-deck Volvo Electric bus is 12 metres long and has a full capacity close to 80 passengers.
Self-sterilising microneedles for vaccination and drug delivery
Vaccinations are the world's frontline defence against infectious diseases yet despite decades of interventions, unsafe injection practices continue to expose billions of people to serious infection and disease.
High-powered fuel cell boosts electric-powered submersibles, drones
A team of engineers has developed a high-power fuel cell using a unique pH-gradient-enabled microscale bipolar interface that could power a variety of transportation modes — including unmanned underwater vehicles, drones and eventually electric aircraft — at significantly lower cost.
Integration of single-crystal hybrid perovskites into electronics
A team of researchers has developed a technique that, for the first time, allows single-crystal hybrid perovskite materials to be integrated into electronics. Because these perovskites can be synthesized at low temperatures, the advance opens the door to new research into flexible electronics and potentially reduced manufacturing costs for electronic devices.
EnvisionTEC first to offer 4K 3D printing
EnvisionTEC announced that it will be debuting the industry's first ever DLP-based 3D printer utilizing a true 4K projector with artificial intelligence.
BMW sets out electric vehicle plan
By 2021, the BMW Group will have five all-electric models: the BMW i3, the MINI Electric, the BMW iX3, the BMW i4 and the BMW iNEXT. By 2025, that number is set to grow to at least twelve models. Including plug-in hybrids - whose electrically powered range will increase significantly in the coming year - the BMW Group's electrified product portfolio will then comprise at least 25 models.
PragmatIC and S&S smooth the way for ultra low cost printed RFID
PragmatIC and Smooth & Sharp Corporation are pleased to announce a strategic collaboration which will accelerate the adoption of PragmatIC's flexible integrated circuits.
A solar cell that does double duty for renewable energy
In the quest for abundant, renewable alternatives to fossil fuels, scientists have sought to harvest the sun's energy through "water splitting," an artificial photosynthesis technique that uses sunlight to generate hydrogen fuel from water. But water-splitting devices have yet to live up to their potential because there still isn't a design for materials with the right mix of optical, electronic, and chemical properties needed for them to work efficiently.
