Biomembrane research findings could advance understanding of computing and human memory

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biological, computing, health, nanotechnology

While studying how bio-inspired materials might inform the design of next-generation computers, scientists at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory achieved a first-of-its-kind result that could have big implications for both edge computing and human health.

Results published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences show that an artificial is capable of long-term potentiation, or LTP, a hallmark of biological learning and . This is the first evidence that a cell membrane alone—without proteins or other biomolecules embedded within it—is capable of LTP that persists for many hours. It is also the first identified nanoscale structure in which memory can be encoded.

“When facilities were shut down as a result of COVID, this led us to pivot away from our usual membrane research,” said John Katsaras, a biophysicist in ORNL’s Neutron Sciences Directorate specializing in neutron scattering and the study of biological membranes at ORNL.

A strange burst of radiation from space has left scientists baffled

Posted by in category: cosmology

Astronomers are in a state of bewilderment after they discovered strange blasts of radiation from space. Those blasts, known as gamma-ray bursts (GRBs), seem to come from a black hole that is developing slowly after two stars merged. According to NewScientist, gamma-ray bursts come in two categories: short GRBs and gamma-ray explosions: short GRBs and long GRBs.

Apple’s self-driving car debut pushed back and may be less advanced

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, sustainability, transportation

The car will allegedly have less ambitious self-driving capabilities initially and it’s debut date has been pushed back to 2026.

Apple’s ambitious electric vehicle (EV) will allegedly have fewer self-driving capabilities for its launch date, the latter of which has been pushed back by a year, from 2025 to 2026, according to a Bloomberg.

The car is still in the pipeline and is reported to be set up with more conventional car features and designs than other autonomous EVs.
