New operating system, called Popcorn Linux, could revolutionize how military and commercial computing systems perform.
The Journal of Nuclear Medicine (JNM) -- the flagship publication of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging -- is again ranked among the top medical imaging journals worldwide, according to the 2016 Journal Citation Reports© published by Thomson Reuters. JNM's impact factor went up from 5.849 to 6.646. Among nuclear medicine journals, JNM has the highest number of citations and citable articles, the highest average five-year impact factor, and the highest influence score.
Smaller and lighter than traditional solar panels, the Roll-Out Solar Array, or ROSA, consists of a center wing made of a flexible material containing photovoltaic cells to convert light into electricity.
PLATO, the largest European exoplanet research mission, was adopted today by the European Space Agency at the ESA Scientific Programs Committee meeting. Switzerland, through the Universities of Geneva (UNIGE) and Berne (UNIBE), is heavily involved in this mission, which should enable astronomers to discover and characterize planets the size of the Earth and the 'super -Earths' that orbit around solar type stars in their habitable zone.
The CoreHEM project will publish an 'effectiveness guidance document' and accompanying peer reviewed article providing recommendations for patient-important outcomes for clinical studies. This is expected by early 2018. Use of these measures will help patients and clinicians to make better treatment decisions, payers to make better policy decisions, and companies to have better predictability in how their studies will be assessed.
Technology invented in a laboratory in the UNC-NC State Joint Biomedical Engineering Program could soon mean painless diabetes testing and insulin injections for the nearly 400 million people with diabetes worldwide.
VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland is developing safe steering for the remote-monitored and controlled autonomous ships of the future.
The University of Gothenburg soon will have its first autonomous underwater vehicle for research use. This will make it possible to conduct detailed studies of the seabed at great depths and track the climate thousands of years back in time.
The Telecommunications Engineer Daniel Leandro-González has developed new fiber optic sensor networks that allow very accurate temperature measurements to be made (with variations of the order of 0.001 ºC). This technological advance, covered in his PhD thesis read at the Public University of Navarre (NUP/UPNA), also offers other advantages, such as lower cost per sensor made possible by including numerous devices of this type within a single fibre optic network.
BioBlox2D is a new free mobile computer game inspired by tackling one of the hardest problems in biological science -- how molecules fit together.
