How a cognitive bias is blocking the rise of electric cars

“A UNIGE team shows that underestimating battery autonomy is a major psychological barrier to buying an electric car. What are the barriers to the adoption of electric cars? Although the main financial and technological obstacles have been removed, their market …

Intel Open-Sources SYCLomatic Migration Tool to Help Developers Create Heterogeneous Code

“Intel has released an open source tool to migrate code to SYCL1 through a project called SYCLomatic, which helps developers more easily port CUDA code to SYCL and C++ to accelerate cross-architecture programming for heterogeneous architectures. This open source project …

Is it topological? A new materials database has the answer

“Searchable tool reveals more than 90,000 known materials with electronic properties that remain unperturbed in the face of disruption. What will it take to make our electronics smarter, faster, and more resilient? One idea is to build them from …

Jacobs University Researchers Develop New Measurement Method In Molecular Electronics

“Controlling electrical signals using single molecules enables the miniaturization of transistors in integrated circuits down to the atomic level. This research area of molecular electronics not only paves the way for the next generation of ultra-powerful computers, but also for …

Low-cost battery-like device absorbs CO2 emissions while it charges

“Researchers have developed a low-cost device that can selectively capture carbon dioxide gas while it charges. Then, when it discharges, the CO2 can be released in a controlled way and collected to be reused or disposed of responsibly. The supercapacitor …

Magnetic resonance makes the invisible visible

“Hyperpolarised water boosts signal intensities of proteins, DNA, and membranes A small group of researchers including Dennis Kurzbach from the Faculty of Chemistry of the University of Vienna just published in “Nature Protocols” an advanced NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) method …

Major milestones for Arm SystemReady in driving ecosystem standards

“The data center market is a thriving and innovative one, but to continue to scale the industry needs to tackle issues around fragmentation, finding the right balance between standardization where it makes sense, and differentiation where it matters. Arm introduced …

Microchip Introduces Fully Integrated Precise Time Scale System

“Enables Nations to Operate an Independent Time Scale Back-up to GNSS to Protect Critical Infrastructure The strength of a nation’s infrastructure is increasingly dependent on the accuracy of time. With pervasive cybersecurity threats to Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS …

NASA puts ISS spacewalks on hold to investigate water leak

“NASA is continuing to investigate water that leaked into a spacesuit helmet during a spacewalk earlier this year and is holding off on future spacewalks until engineers can resolve the problem. The leak took place during the most recent spacewalk …

NASA’s InSight Still Hunting Marsquakes as Power Levels Diminish

“Dusty solar panels and darker skies are expected to bring the Mars lander mission to a close around the end of this year. NASA’s InSight Mars lander is gradually losing power and is anticipated to end science operations later …
