Researchers bring AI and simulation tools in the fight against covid 19

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory is leading efforts to combine artificial intelligence (AI) and cutting-edge simulation workflows to better understand biological observations and accelerate drug discovery in its ongoing campaign to reveal the inner workings of the Sar-CoV-2 virus. Argonne started working with academic and commercial research partners to achieve near real-time feedback between simulation and AI approaches in order to better understand how two proteins in the SARS-CoV-2 viral genome, nsp10 and nsp16, interact to help the virus replicate and evade the host’s immune system….

Indian researchers develops Ai chatbots answering COVID questions

Indian researchers are working to develop a chatbot based on an artificial neural network that can perform natural language processing (NLP). The team explains how the chatbot may be trained to answer COVID-19 pandemic-related queries. Details are to be found in the International Journal of Intelligent Engineering Informatics. According to Vishal Tiwari, Lokesh Kumar Verma, Pulkit Sharma, Rachna Jain, and Preeti Nagrath of Bharati Vidyapeeth’s College of Engineering in New Delhi, the emergence of a new coronavirus—SARS-CoV-2—and the following pandemic it triggered has prompted widespread alarm throughout the world. The…

New research to preserve the network when fibre is down

Wide Area Networks (WANs), global backbones and workhorses of today’s internet that connect billions of computers across continents and oceans, are the foundation of current online services. As a result of COVID-19’s reliance on online services, today’s networks are failing to meet the high bandwidth and availability demands imposed by new workloads. Scientists from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) and from Facebook recently devised a method for preserving the network and lowering costs when the fibre goes down. ARROW, their technology reconfigures the optical light from a broken fibre to a…

Researchers developed rechargeable batteries that can store tore six times more charge

An international team of researchers lead by Stanford University has developed rechargeable batteries that can store up to six times the charge of commercially available batteries. The breakthrough, described in a new paper published on August 25 in the journal Nature, could accelerate the use of rechargeable batteries and bring battery researchers one step closer to achieving two top stated goals of their field: developing a high-performance rechargeable battery that could allow smart phones to be charged only once a week rather than daily and developing electric vehicles that can…

Magnets offer better control of prosthetic limbs

Researchers in MIT’s Media Lab have now discovered a way of controlling prosthetic limbs in a far more accurate way. After introducing microscopic magnetic perforations in the muscle tissue into the severed residual, the length of the muscle may be precisely measured during contraction and this feedback can be related within milliseconds to the bionic prosthesis. One of the biggest problems for amputators using prosthetic limbs is managing the prosthesis such that the same movements as a normal limb. Most prosthetic extremities are controlled by electromyography, an electrical recording method…
