New heat-storage material may end your winter blues

In what may be a solution for your cold-weather woes, researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), through a new heat-storing material, claim to have prepared a dress that could release heat to keep you warm during the winter months.

The heat could be stored by the newly developed dress material, a transparent polymer film, which can capture solar energy and then release it at a later stage triggered by different stimuli.

Scientists believe Chitons could help inspire innovative new building materials

Scientists believe Chitons could help inspire innovative new building materials

Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology scientists have been studying a type of sea mollusk, chitons, that have hundreds of sensor eyes fixed in their armor-like shells. According to the scientists, the small sea creatures could be useful in inspiring innovative new building materials.

A kind of chiton, Acanthopleura granulate have hard shells composed of overlapping plates. They are at times known as the pill bug of the ocean, and it is their armor that helps them in staying safe from predators.

There is evidence of Alzheimer's in neural tissue 20 to 30 years before one starts noticing lapses in memory

Sandy Halperin was probably around just 35 years old when his brain started slowly accumulating the plaques and tangles of Alzheimer's disease. With the help of the recent advances, now disease can be seen in the living brain, and it is now known that there is an evidence of Alzheimer's in neural tissue 20 to 30 years before a person begins noticing lapses in memory.

At the age of 60, when Sandy first began losing words and started forgetting his intentions, the disease had already advanced, no matter Sandy and his family has noticed symptoms for the first time ever.

MIT Researcher develops Drone that avoids Obstacles at 30 miles per hour

Drones not only fly without a human onboard, but also reach places where humans cannot go. Now, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers have developed something that will make the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles more useful. The researchers created a self-fly drone that avoids obstacles at a speed of about 30 miles per hour.

MIT DSM beats over 600 Human Teams in finding Predictive Patterns buried in unfamiliar data sets

According to a group of researchers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Computer Science Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), they have created a unique computer system, which works on artificial intelligence and outperforms even the Earth’s smartest humans.

Data Science Machine (DSM) looks for patterns in data sets, such as a database of promotional sale dates or weekly profits. There are many things that computers perform better and faster than humans, but still machines need human input to select what to find in a huge data set.
