Neuroimaging With Machine Learning

Studying the human mind is challenging. Currently, most human brain studies are limited to non-invasive approaches, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). This limits the examination of the human brain at the cellular level, which may offer novel insights into the development and potential treatment of various neurological diseases.

IBM Weather Graph

Global High-Resolution Atmospheric Forecasting System

On January 11th, IBM announced that they will soon be introducing the world’s highest-resolution global weather forecasting model later in 2019. Known as the IBM Global High-Resolution Atmospheric Forecasting System (GRAF), the model will be the first of its kind with hourly-updating capabilities, with the ability to predict something as small as a thunderstorm virtually […]

Black Hole

3D Simulations Of Black Hole Dynamics

In the past, 3D simulations of black hole dynamics have modelled plasma made of electrons and positrons as a continuum. Recently, and for the first time, a team of astrophysicists have calculated how individual particles of matter and antimatter swirl around a rotating black hole.

CMOS

CMOS Imaging Technology

Initially, CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) was limited because of its inherent noise, however, CMOS imaging technology is now trending to become the dominant imaging technology. The original architectural design was essentially analog, and the concept of integrating the image processing features with System On Chip (SoC) technology had not been considered.

Delivery Robots

Neighborhood Delivery Robots

The days of heading out to pick up food from a restaurant are coming to an end, at least in Washington, DC.  A fleet of roughly 20 autonomous, knee-high neighborhood delivery robots recently appeared on the sidewalks of the nation’s capital.  Their mission is to revolutionize hyper-local delivery in the big cities by bringing takeout […]

MRI Machine

MRI With Proton Beam

MR guidance is emerging as a powerful tool for real-time monitoring of radiation treatments, offering excellent soft-tissue contrast and the ability to track intra-fractional tumor motion. Hybrid devices for MR-guided photon-based radiotherapy are now in clinical use. But to date, no such combined system exists for proton therapy.

Lunar Eclipse

Extraordinary Images Of The Lunar Eclipse

If you happened to look up into the sky on Sunday, January 20th, you probably spotted a ‘blood moon’, also known as a lunar eclipse. Millions of people around the world enjoyed the sight as the moon slowly turned dark, and then red over a period of several hours. However, a few extremely sharp-eyed viewers […]

Grocery Store Automation

Automation in Grocery Stores

The advent of online shopping ushered into homes across the globe, a revolution in convenience. No longer do consumers have to travel to a store to browse items and make a purchase. Instead, the store would come to them digitally with a click of a button. In the past two decades, the growth of on-line […]

Transmission Electron Microscope

Transmission Electron Microscope

TEM, or Transmission electron microscopy (also sometimes conventional transmission electron microscopy or CTEM) is a microscopy technique in which a beam of electrons is transmitted through a specimen to form an image. The specimen is most often an ultrathin section less than 100 nm thick or a suspension on a grid. An image is formed from the interaction of the electrons with the sample […]

Machine Vision In The Food And Beverage Industry

With high-precision imaging, the food processing and beverage industry tests even hard-to-inspect products with absolute reliability. The result: 100% quality and ever-growing productivity. The need to manufacture products reliably, and without faults is more important than ever in the food, beverage and packaging industries. The pressure to achieve this has led to extremely high levels […]
