Digital fabrication in architecture
Society faces enormous challenges in constructing high-quality, future-oriented built environments. Construction sites today look much like the building sites did at the beginning of the 20th century. Current research on digital fabrication in architecture indicates that the development and integration of innovative digital technologies within architectural and construction processes could transform the building industry -- on the verge of a building industry 4.0. Digital technologies in architecture and construction could increase productivity creating new jobs.
Tech would use drones and insect biobots to map disaster areas
Researchers have developed a combination of software and hardware that will allow them to use unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and insect cyborgs, or biobots, to map large, unfamiliar areas -- such as collapsed buildings after a disaster.
Three magnetic states for each hole: Researchers investigate the potential of metal grids for electronic components
Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing, say scientists who have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ('antidot') three magnetic states can be configured.
Scientist uncovers physics behind plasma-etching process
A team of physicists has uncovered some of the physics that make possible the etching of silicon computer chips, which power cell phones, computers, and a huge range of electronic devices.
Watching computers think
Neural networks are commonly used today to analyze complex data -- for instance to find clues to illnesses in genetic information. Ultimately, though, no one knows how these networks actually work exactly. That is why researchers developed software that enables them to look into these black boxes and analyze how they function.
Digital relay baton enables remote crowd cheering of athletes
The loneliness of the long distance runner could soon be a thing of the past as new technology allows crowds to cheer on athletes from anywhere in the world. A prototype digital relay baton has been developed by computer scientists to allow friends, family and other interested viewers to offer encouragement to weary athletes undertaking challenging events -- such as long-distance charity fund-raising runs.
Making distributed storage highly consistent
One of the fundamental open challenges in computer science is effective data storage. The socio-economic value and scale of information increases day by day and researchers have been working to identify ways to ensure not only that digitally stored data endures, but also that it is readily available, reliable and, above all, consistent.
For they know not what they do: Study on the robotization of office, service professions
Robots, common in manufacturing jobs, increasingly spread to office professions. Humanoid or human-like robots already perform tasks in hotels, in stores, and in restaurants. They cook, serve, or advise customers. They communicate like humans via speech, gestures, and sometimes even facial expressions. A real robot hype can be observed in many occupations that are at risk of being replaced by robots/in the process of robotization, say authors of a new report.
Innovative technique to curtail illegal copying of digital media
In today's digital world it can be challenging to prevent photos, videos and books from being illegally copied and distributed. A new light-based technique is making it more practical to create secure, invisible watermarks that can be used to detect and prosecute counterfeiting.
Sensors embedded in sports equipment could provide real-time analytics to your smartphone
In an effort to make big data analytics more accessible for the sports industry, researchers have utilized IoT devices -- low-cost sensors and radios -- that can be embedded into sports equipment (e.g., balls, rackets, and shoes), as well as in wearable devices.
