Using AI to understand volcanic eruptions from tiny ash

Scientists have shown that an artificial intelligence program called a Convolutional Neural Network can be trained to categorize volcanic ash particle shapes. Because the shapes of volcanic particles are linked to the type of volcanic eruption, this categorization can help provide information on eruptions and aid volcanic hazard mitigation efforts.

New Supercapacitor Advances in Japan

Supercapacitor sales are mostly about automotive, with Chinese buses being the main destination of Ioxus and Maxwell supercapacitors and Japanese cars the main users of Nippon ChemiCon supercapacitors. French cars are the main users of Batscap supercapacitors and so on. IDTechEx analysts regularly visit many supercapacitor and lithium-ion capacitor (supercabattery) manufacturers and users in Japan the center of the global EV industry, with Toyota the leader by a large margin. Here are some of the findings.
