    Portable Non-Invasive Bioluminescent Imaging

    A biochemical reaction between an enzyme called luciferase and oxygen causes fireflies to glow and is considered one of the most well-known examples of bioluminescence in nature. Now, an international team of researchers led by Elena Goun at the...

    The Neural Mechanism of Autonomous Learning

    Thanks to the so-called deep learning, a subset of artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms inspired by the brain, machines can match human performance in perception and language recognition and even outperform humans in certain tasks. But do these...

    3D Holographic Head-Up Display Could Improve Road Safety

    Researchers have developed the first lidar-based augmented reality head-up display for use in vehicles. Tests on a prototype version of the technology suggest that it could improve road safety by ‘seeing through’ objects to alert of...
