Wave device could deliver clean energy to thousands of homes
A wave energy technology is being developed that could help generate low-cost electricity for thousands of houses. The device costs less than conventional designs, has fewer moving parts, and is made of durable materials. It is designed to be incorporated into existing ocean energy systems and can convert wave power into electricity.
Corpower is a Swedish wave energy technology developer.
Artificial intelligence can predict how cancers will evolve and spread
Scientists have used artificial intelligence to predict how cancers will progress and evolve - so that doctors can design the most effective treatment for each patient.
Dementia could be detected via routinely collected data
A new machine-learning model that scans routinely collected NHS data has shown promising signs of being able to predict undiagnosed dementia in primary care.
Machine learning algorithm can tell how smart you are
If you've ever lied about your IQ to seem more intelligent, it's time to fess up. Scientists can now tell how smart you are just by looking at a scan of your brain. Actually, to be more precise, the scientists themselves aren't looking at your brain scan; a machine-learning algorithm they've developed is.
Therapy robots a step closer to reality
Tiny remotely operated robots could be designed to diagnose and treat illness in hard-to-reach areas of the human body, research suggests.
Grant to establish robotics centre for tackling nuclear waste
It will go towards the creation of the National Centre for Nuclear Robotics which is a multi-university project that has received funding and contributions totalling £40m to bring together a diverse consortium of experts in robotics, AI, sensors and radiation resilient embedded systems to address nuclear waste problems.
Prepping a robot for its journey to Mars
Researchers are preparing an astronaut named Valkyrie for a mission to Mars. It is 6 feet tall and weighs 300 pounds.
Proton diffusion discovery a boost for fuel cell technologies
Scientists at the University of Liverpool have made an important breakthrough which could lead to the design of better fuel cell materials.
Mobile robots are electric vehicles
Marty is a fully programmable and customisable walking robot. For kids, makers, and educators created by Edinburgh University startup Robotical.
Meeting with ALABC/ILA London 13 Jan 2016
The International Lead Association (ILA) now runs the Advanced Lead Acid Battery Corporation (ALABC) and it is repositioning it to basic research at the request of its members.
Squishy transistors: a device concept for fast, low-power electronics
An international team of researchers have shown that a new device concept - a 'squishy' transistor - can overcome the predicted power bottleneck caused by CMOS technology reaching its fundamental limits.
Breakthrough in energy harvesting could power 'life on Mars'
Martian colonists could use an innovative new technique to harvest energy from carbon dioxide thanks to research pioneered at Northumbria and Edinburgh Universities.
Low-impact hub generates electrical current from pure plant power
Green wall technology and semi-transparent solar panels have been combined to generate electrical current from a renewable source of energy both day and night.
The one-stop RFID event to learn, network and plan the future
The eighth IDTechEx RFID Europe event broke all previous records with over 350 delegates from 19 countries who heard major corporations sharing their RFID success and needs.
