The third breakthrough shows that photosynthetic hacks can increase yields, conserve water

A team of scientists from the University of Essex has increased crop productivity by 27 percent by solving two bottles in photosynthesis – the process by which plants regulate carbon dioxide in the sugars that grow crops. Chidi Afamefule (left) maintains an unmodified control plant while Kenny Brown (center) maintains a modified plant to resolve a bottleneck, and Patricia Lopez-Calcagno …

Deep learning and metamaterials make the invisible visible

Credit: Bakhtiyar Orazbayev / EPFL By combining purpose-built materials and neural networks, researchers at EPFL have shown that sound can be used in high-resolution images. Imaging allows us to describe an object through the remote field analysis of light and sound waves it transmits or radiates. The shorter the wave, the higher the image resolution. However, the level of detail …
