Artificial Intelligence to increase air safety in the face of storms

The European research project START, coordinated by the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) and with the participation of important actors in the aeronautical scene, combines Big Data and Artificial Intelligence to develop algorithms that allow air traffic networks to be optimised during storms. This would improve the safety and timeliness of flights and reduce […]

University of Iowa chemists study environmental safety, health effects of nanotechnology

The world of nanotechnology is a place where materials so small they’re undetectable to the human eye are found in products we use every day, from sunscreen to cell phone batteries. That’s a good thing. But nanomaterials may have hazardous side effects to the environment or to human health. And because these constituents are so tiny, […]
