Carbon Nanostructure Stronger Than Diamonds

Researchers have architecturally designed plate-nanolattices - nanometer-sized carbon structures - that are stronger than diamonds as a ratio of strength to density.

Using machine learning to understand climate change

Every three years, an international group of climate scientists called the Global Carbon Project updates what is known as the methane budget. The methane budget reflects the current state of understanding of the inputs and outputs in the global methane cycle. It was last updated in 2016.

Machine learning to find out which wildfires will burn out of control

An interdisciplinary team of scientists has developed a new technique for predicting the final size of a wildfire from the moment of ignition. Built around a machine learning algorithm, the model can help in forecasting whether a blaze is going to be small, medium or large by the time it has run its course -- knowledge useful to those in charge of allocating scarce firefighting resources.

Deep learning algorithm solves Rubik's Cube faster than any human

Since its invention by a Hungarian architect in 1974, the Rubik's Cube has furrowed the brows of many who have tried to solve it, but the 3D logic puzzle is no match for an artificial intelligence system created by researchers.

Why a robot can't yet outjump a flea

When it comes to things that are ultrafast and lightweight, robots can't hold a candle to the fastest-jumping insects and other small-but-powerful creatures. New research could help explain why nature still beats robots, and describes how machines might take the lead.

Ionic 'solar cell' could provide on-demand water desalination

Modern solar cells, which use energy from light to generate electrons and holes that are then transported out of semiconducting materials, have existed for over 60 years. Little attention has been paid, however, to the promise of using light to drive the transport of oppositely charged protons and hydroxides obtained by dissociating water molecules.

How robots can help kids stay in school

Telepresence robots — Internet-enabled, two-way-video-streaming automatons that have wheels for feet and a screen showing the child's face at the top of a vertical "body" — act as surrogates.

Tyre pressure monitoring systems & energy harvesting

Although the first tyre pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) appeared in the mid-80's as a feature of top-range luxury vehicles, it is only in recent years that they have seen widespread adoption worldwide. Most drivers in the USA must recognize the symbol below, a warning light incorporated in dashboards of all new vehicles after 2007 (although phase in started in 2005), that informs drivers on whether tire pressure is getting dangerously low.
