Ultrathin 3-D-printed films convert energy of one form into another

[ad_1] MIT researchers have 3-D printed ultrathin ceramic films that convert energy from one form into another for flexible electronics and biosensors. Here, they’ve printed the piezoelectric films into a pattern spelling out “MIT.” Credit: Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT researchers have developed a simple, low-cost method to 3-D print ultrathin films with high-performing “piezoelectric” […]

Google, Intel and Microsoft form data protection consortium

[ad_1] Some of the early contributions include a Microsoft framework that helps you write code to run inside Trusted Execution Environments, an Intel framework for protecting code at the hardware level and a Red Hat tool that abstracts secure environments to the point where you can create and run private “serverless” apps. Appropriately, the Linux […]

'MacGyver'-like robot can build own tools by assessing form, function of supplies

[ad_1] Credit: Georgia Institute of Technology Thanks to new technology that enables them to create simple tools, robots may be on the verge of their own version of the Stone Age. Using a novel capability to reason about shape, function, and attachment of unrelated parts, researchers have for the first time successfully trained an intelligent […]
