Nanofilm Serves as Artificial Retina

Israel-based Nano Retina made some noise a few years back with its development of so-called nanoelectrodes that interface with the eyes bipolar neurons and restart neural stimulation, allowing for messages to go to the brain. The nanoelectrodes served as a kind of artificial retina.

Cyborg cockroaches can hear you call and scurry to the rescue

Researchers atNorth Carolina State University have figured out how to make cyborg cockroaches — or biobots, as they call them — pick up sound and seek out its source. So one day, the first responders to a rubble-filled disaster scene might be rescue roaches.

EcoCorp Asia launches nanopool in Sri Lanka

After nearly two years of research and development across industries in Sri Lanka, EcoCorp Asia introduced nanopool, a nanotechnology-based solution that promises to effectively change the way we live. nanopool is a surface protection system that is 500 times thinner than a single strand of human hair. The liquid coatings, based on the principles of the wet-chemical sol-gel process, create functional nano-scale layers

The future of artificial intelligence: Will computers take your job?

Artificial intelligence experts predict that computers in coming years will increasingly replace knowledge workers The field of artificial intelligence may not be able to create a robotic vacuum cleaner that never knocks over a vase, at least not within a couple of years, but intelligent machines will increasingly replace knowledge workers in the near future, a group of AI experts predicted. An AI machine that can learn the same way humans do, and has the equivalent processing power of a human brain, is still a few years off, the experts said
