Lithuanian scientists contributed to creating the record-breaking solar cell

[ad_1] The innovative method allows forming the electrode layer as thin as 1-2 nm, evenly covering even rough surfaces of tandem architectures. Credit: Juste Suminaite/KTU Tandem perovskite-CIGS solar cells, produced as a result of the collaboration between Lithuanian and German researchers, have reached an efficiency of 23.26%, which currently is a world record value in […]

Scientists are teaching computers to diagnose soybean stress

[ad_1] Unmanned aerial vehicles could be equipped with hyperspectral technology capable of detecting wavelength ranges beyond those detectable by the human eye. Such technology could combine with machine learning techniques under development at Iowa State to help farmers anticipate stress among their crops before symptoms appear.

The first ever black hole image lands scientists $3 million prize

[ad_1] The prize will be split between the 347 scientists that worked on the ground-breaking project, which produced the very first image of a black hole. The data behind the image — which could confirm or at least pose significant questions about our understanding of the universe — was equivalent to the number of selfies […]

Scientists develop a traffic monitoring system based on artificial intelligence

[ad_1] Credit: South Ural State University Scientists of South Ural State University have developed a unique intelligent system for monitoring traffic flow using artificial intelligence, which does not require specific recording equipment and can work on almost any type of camera. The system instantly processes data received in real time, unlike existing programs in which […]

Scientists avoid gender bias when they know they're being tested for bias

[ad_1] Thomas Koehler | Getty Images When it comes to gender, science suffers from what’s been called a “leaky pipeline.” In some fields, like biology, women make up the majority of the individuals entering graduate school in the field. But at each successive career stage—post-doctoral fellowships, junior faculty, tenured faculty—the percentage of women drops. The […]

Scientists bioprint living tissue in a matter of seconds

[ad_1] The approach, volumetric bioprinting, forms tissue by projecting a laser down a spinning tube containing hydrogel full of stem cells. You can shape the resulting tissue simply by focusing the laser’s energy on specific locations to solidify them, creating a useful 3D shape within seconds. After that, it’s a matter of introducing endothelial cells […]

Deep learning enables scientists to identify cancer cells in blood in milliseconds

[ad_1] Yueqin Li Jalali Lab/UCLA Researchers at UCLA and NantWorks have developed an artificial intelligence-powered device that detects cancer cells in a few milliseconds—hundreds of times faster than previous methods. With that speed, the invention could make it possible to extract cancer cells from blood immediately after they are detected, which could in turn help […]

Scientists train robots to make independent decisions in a changing environment

[ad_1] Credit: CC0 Public Domain A team of scientists from the School of Engineering of Far Eastern Federal University and institutional collaborators has developed software for industrial AI robots with technical vision to set out and adjust the movement trajectories of their tools in real time without reduced precision. The team from FEFU developed and […]
