Over half of the world’s active volcanoes are not tracked using any instruments. Hence, even eruptions that could possibly have rung an alarm can take place without people at risk having an inkling of the imminent ...
Ozgur Sahi, associate professor of biological sciences and physics at Columbia University, conducted a research recently with colleagues in his laboratory to demonstrate the possibility of fabricating materials to make soft actuators that are flexible, strong, and most importantly resistant to water damage.
The world is full of despondently complicated systems: transportation systems, biological systems, financial systems, and so on. These so-called difficult systems—natural or man-made—are systems that are basically challenging to predict because of emergent collective dynamics impacted by external environmental parameters.
A study by German researchers from Jena and Hamburg, published recently in the journal Nature, reveals that artificial intelligence (AI) can considerably advance man’s insight into climate and the Earth system.
A fully autonomous bat-like terrestrial robot, named Robat, can use echolocation to move through a novel environment while mapping it solely based on sound, according to a study published in PLOS Computational Biology by Itamar Eliakim of Tel Aviv University, and colleagues.
Following a major earthquake, the surrounding area is usually prone to powerful aftershocks that can largely hinder the recovery efforts.
Researchers are creating a fleet of autonomous aerial drones that coordinate with each other to detect, track, and model the environment.
As part of an innovative project funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), scientists from Electronics and Computer Science (ECS) at the University of Southampton will use machine learning and bio-inspired algorithms to create fault-tolerant robotic swarms.
The ERC remOcean project created a category of robots - biogeochemical profiling floats, with the ability to gather data from the ocean through the year.
Researchers are working to develop an innovative device for measuring the amount of carbon dioxide in distant parts of the oceans around the globe.
