Is AI set to change drug development?

Scientists working

For all our technological advances over recent decades, the emergence of completely new drugs to tackle some of the world’s most prevalent diseases have been few and far between as often recently approved drugs are just repurposed existing drugs. But that could be about to change. By harnessing the power of artificial intelligence (AI) and […]

The Rise of Mobile Fish Farms and Deep Ocean Fisheries

Fish Farming Issues For decades, intensive fish farms have been a key source of delivering our insatiable appetite for food from our oceans. They have also helped ease the issue of over-fishing where fish populations were harvested to the detriment of both the species, environment and the communities who relied upon it. However, such commercial […]

The future of robotic AI prosthetics

The use of prosthetic limbs have come a long way over recent generations. Now they could be about to take another giant stride forward. Not only could they be on the cusp of offering unparalleled control methods but even deliver a realistic sensation to the user of what they are feeling through texture, weight and […]

3D Bioprinting tissue to organs to cosmetics

 3D Printing Progress First there were 3D printing – capable of reproducing everything from spare parts to architectural designs. Now the technology is progressing at pace and it could be set to save lives – potentially millions of them. In the US alone there are more than 100,000 people awaiting a major organ transplant with […]

Processing a more open computing future with RISC V

The technology which drives our mobile devices, laptops and wider Internet of Things has, for many years now, been dominated by the big players. Powered forward by the likes of technology companies AMD, Intel, Apple and Arm, the processors upon which our connected lives depend have been cornered by the proprietary technology they developed or […]

Turning CO2 Emissions into Sustainable Solutions with Carbon Mineralisation

As the world continues to grapple with the urgent challenge of climate change, there remains no shortage of new technologies and solutions emerging to address the problem. One is carbon mineralisation, a process that has the potential to capture and store large amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) in stable, solid minerals. What is Carbon Mineralisation? […]

Turning fog into water with fog collection

Harnessing the power of the wind, sun, and tide to create energy is well-established. But what about fog collection to harvest fresh water? The concept of fog water collection is certainly not new. It is thought harvesting water through weather conditions dates back to early civilisations. But the strain on the world’s water supply is […]
