A Purdue University researcher and students created a computer model, based on the 1999 shooting at Columbine High School, which looks at what happens to victims caught in shooter situations to provide better training for schools and other organizations.
A team of researchers from Jena presents a groundbreaking new method for the rapid, gentle and reliable detection of tumors with laser light. The Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) introduced a compact device for rapid cancer diagnosis during surgery at the leading trade fair "Laser World of Photonics" from 24 to 27 June 2019 in Munich. The optical method will help surgeons to remove tumors more precisely and perspectively could make cancer operations possible without a scalpel.
The deployment, successfully achieved by Ericsson and Telefónica, includes a new 5G Massive MIMO Radio running on 3.5GHz band, along with virtual Evolved Packet Core and User Data Consolidation.
Purdue University researchers are using graphene to help people with neurological diseases who use implantable devices.
Researchers at the University of Washington have developed a new tool to monitor people for cardiac arrest while they're asleep without touching them. A new skill for a smart speaker -- like Google Home and Amazon Alexa -- or smartphone lets the device detect the gasping sound of agonal breathing and call for help.
A program to monitor street signs automatically via Google Street View will save time and money for municipal authorities.
We investigated the history of Japanese black tea, its decline, the manufacturing technology and the components of tea. We found that the main reasons for the revival and spread of Japanese black tea were production and manufacturing innovation. Fermentation is an especially important process because it determines tea quality. Fermentation technology was established by entrepreneurial farmers and transferred to other Japanese black tea farmers, resulting in the rapid market creation of Japanese black tea.
Chemists at Harvard University and Eisai have achieved what a new paper calls a 'landmark in drug discovery' with the total synthesis of 11.5g of halichondrin. Known to be a potent anti-cancer agent in mouse studies, and found naturally in sea sponges -- though only ever in minuscule quantities -- the halichondrin class of molecule is so fiendishly complex that it had never been synthesized on a meaningful scale in the lab.
SEARCHLIGHT project radically rethinks wireless architectures for highly scalable ultra-dense millimeter-wave networks. Millimeter-wave technology will achieve data rates previously only possible with optical fiber.
Participants in research are motivated by learning, teaching opportunities.
