Don’t throw away your bifocals or multiple glasses yet, but those days might soon be over. A team led by University of Utah engineers has created “smart glasses” with liquid-based lenses that can automatically adjust the focus on what you’re seeing, at any distance.
With the launch of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, the organisation aims to invest in the long-term future of communities by undertaking vital research in areas such as science, technology and education to ensure each individual can reach their full potential and live in a more modern, advanced and beneficial future.
A team of scientists has invented a replacement for daily glucose-level finger-pricking and insulin shots: a painless “smart” patch that monitors blood glucose and releases insulin when levels climb too high. The report on the device, which has only been tested on mice so far, appears in the journal ACS Nano.
Institutes of Technology are categories of educational institutions that impart education in technology fields. Those institutes deal with natural science, applied sciences and engineering technologies. However, the usage of this term is varied from country to country. Sometimes, it is referred to as Polytechnics.
Researchers at top universities, backed by funding from federal and other outfits, are pumping out loads of research on network security, wireless networking and more. Here's a recap of 7 impressive projects from recent months.
A group of management professors from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology think so, and they’ve published a new study on a data-driven model they say is more predictive of faculty research success than traditional peer-based tenure reviews.
President Obama has named 102 scientists and engineers, including 19 nominated by the National Science Foundation (NSF), as recipients of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE). PECASE is the U.S. government's highest award for scientists and engineers in the early stages of their research careers and who show the potential for exceptional leadership.
The President signed into law the bipartisan American Innovation and Competiveness Act (AICA) (S. 3084). AICA represents a bicameral, bipartisan agreement that includes nine House Science Committee bills that passed the full House over the last two years, including H.R. 1806, the America COMPETES Reauthorization Act of 2015.
