Introducing quantum convolutional neural networks

Posted by in categories: quantum physics, robotics/AI

Machine learning techniques have so far proved to be very promising for the analysis of data in several fields, with many potential applications. However, researchers have found that applying these methods to quantum physics problems is far more challenging due to the exponential complexity of many-body systems.

An Interview with Dr. David Sinclair

Posted by in categories: genetics, life extension

Dr. David Sinclair, a Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School, is one of the most well-known researchers in the field of rejuvenation, and his lab is the beneficiary of a successful Lifespan.io campaign.

Today, Dr. Sinclair is releasing his book on Amazon, “Lifespan: Why We Age and Why We Don’t Have To”, and on Wednesday, September 18, we will be hosting a webinar with Dr. Sinclair as well. Please contact [email protected] if you would like to join or have any questions regarding this webinar.

At International Perspectives in Geroscience, a conference hosted at Weizmann Institute of Science (Israel) on September 4–5, we had the opportunity to interview Dr. Sinclair about his work and his thoughts on the current state of research.

Copy cats: pet-cloning in China – in pictures

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

Pet cloning is illegal in many countries but approved in several states including South Korea and the US, where the singer Barbra Streisand announced last year she had cloned her dog. The first significant success in animal cloning was Dolly the sheep, born in Britain in 1996 as the first mammal cloned from an adult cell. In 2005, researchers in South Korea cloned the first dog.


As Chinese spending on pets increases by up to 27% year on year, a Beijing firm has created its first cloned kitten

Cambridge startup claims breakthrough electric car battery that can charge in 6 minutes

Posted by in categories: nanotechnology, sustainability, transportation

A startup that spun out of Cambridge University claims a battery breakthrough that can charge an electric car in just six minutes.

It’s something we heard before, but the difference here is that they claim that they can commercialize the new battery as soon as next year.

The startup, Echion Technologies, was founded by Dr. Jean De La Verpilliere while he was studying for his PhD in nanoscience at the University of Cambridge.

World’s smallest accelerometer points to new era in wearables, gaming

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, nanotechnology, wearables

In what could be a breakthrough for body sensor and navigation technologies, researchers at KTH have developed the smallest accelerometer yet reported, using the highly conductive nanomaterial, graphene.

Each passing day, nanotechnology and the potential for material make new progress. The latest step forward is a tiny made with graphene by an international research team involving KTH Royal Institute of Technology, RWTH Aachen University and Research Institute AMO GmbH, Aachen.

Among the conceivable applications are monitoring systems for cardiovascular diseases and ultra-sensitive wearable and portable motion-capture technologies.
