AI creating a safer society …

A new security system is being developed which uses radar energy to detect weapons and explosives on a person. The technology is built to be used in public spaces like venues, transport, hotels and schools. The tech can be hidden and can be further away from typical detectors at entrances meaning it is much more

A medical miracle …

Three paralysed men with spinal cord injuries have received treatment which means they’re able to walk again for the first time in years.

The future of sustainable air travel …

Air travel currently accounts for 2% of global carbon dioxide emissions, so finding a greener solution is vital. Researchers at MIT are investigating how batteries can be altered using magnetic fields in order to increase the rate at which the batteries discharge electricity. The main trouble with passenger aircraft is the demand of takeoff, which

Leak-detecting robotics could save up to 20% of clean water …

Each day around 20% of clean water produced in the world is lost due to leaky pipes which can lead to more serious, damaging problems. However a new robotic called Lighthouse (which has also just won the 2018 James Dyson award) can travel through pipes, detecting leaks via suction and recording the information which can

AI Can Spot Eye Disease with 94.5% Accuracy

AI now can spot eye diseas and explain its’ results. This is a huge step forward, as before the results were always kind of coming out of a black box. This will make it easier to understand how the underlying data is driving the results. It is especially important as there is a hight need
