The unique structures of biological vision systems in nature inspired scientists to design ultra-compact imaging systems. A research group led by Professor Ki-Hun Jeong have made an ultra-compact camera that captures high-contrast and high-resolution images. […]

Scientists from Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech), a private graduate research institute in Moscow, Russia, discovered and quantified what appears to be a fundamental limitation in the wildly adopted quantum approach initiated by Google. Google is racing to develop quantum-enhanced processors that utilize quantum mechanical effects to one […]

Man Versus Machine: Can AI Do Science? Over the last few decades, machine learning has revolutionized many sectors of society, with machines learning to drive cars, identify tumors and play chess – often surpassing their human counterparts. Now, a team of scientists based at the Okinawa Institute of Science and […]

Vanderhall’s Venice GT is a worthwhile option for those who want to make a statement around town. The Vanderhall Motor Works Venice GT can be driven in California without a motorcycle endorsement. However, driver and passenger are required to wear a DOT-labeled helmet. Adam Waheed Half car, half motorcycle—three-wheelers like Vanderhall […]

Electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) is ‘tuned’ by two particles on the optical resonator. The different locations of particles control the propagation of light in either clockwise or counterclockwise directions, which switch on (upper configuration) or off (lower configuration) the interference of light, leading to controllable brightness (EIT) and darkness in […]
