New research on solid-state batteries could lead to longer-lasting batteries

Posted by in category: energy

The researchers hope to develop strategies to stop or at least restrict growth at the negative pole.

Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research have focused on the life cycle of solid-state batteries, and their research could lead to longer-lasting batteries.

The so-called “solid-state batteries” are considered the “Holy Grail” of battery development. They no longer have a liquid core, like modern batteries, but rather a solid substance. This has various benefits, including the fact that these batteries may be produced on a smaller scale and are trickier to ignite.

Low-cost device can measure air pollution anywhere

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, sustainability

“The goal is for community groups or individual citizens anywhere to be able to measure local air pollution.”

As per an estimation by WHO, air pollution causes around 4 million annual premature deaths all over the globe. Considering this issue, an MIT research team launched an open-source version of an economical, mobile pollution detector through which individuals can track the air-quality more broadly.

The detector, named Flatburn, can be fabricated through 3D printing or by ordering cheap parts. The researchers have now conducted tests and calibrated the detector concerning existing ultra-modern machines and are making people aware of how to assemble, use, and interpret the data.

Revolutionary 3D-printed devices utilize advanced sensing technology

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, electronics

Up until now, it was still infamously difficult to include sensors in 3D designs.

Engineers might be able to create smart hinges that can detect when a door has been opened or gears inside motors that can communicate their rotational speed to a mechanic by integrating sensors into rotational systems.

Even while improvements in 3D printing allow for the quick manufacture of rotational devices, it is still infamously difficult to include sensors in the designs.

Ex-Uber employee designs new approach to evaluating AI capabilities

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

The Turing Test, developed in 1950 has become quite obsolete.

Chris Saad, the former head of product development at Uber, has designed a new framework to benchmark the intelligence of artificial intelligence (AI), which is currently undergoing a sea change. The framework, based on a theory that intelligence is not a monolithic construction, was recently shared on Tech Crunch.

AI has been the trending topic for the past few months after OpenAI made public their conversational chatbot, ChatGPT. Users have tested the chatbot in many different areas varying from writing poetry to code and even sales pitches, and the bot hasn’t disappointed.
