What makes a good tree? We used AI to ask birds

Grassy box gum woodlands once covered millions of square kilometers in southeastern Australia, but today less than 5% remains. The loss of large old trees has been a crisis for the many species of birds and other animals ...

Membrane protein analogs could accelerate drug discovery

Many drug and antibody discovery pathways focus on intricately folded cell membrane proteins: when molecules of a drug candidate bind to these proteins, like a key going into a lock, they trigger chemical cascades that alter ...

Enhancing nanofibrous acoustic energy harvesters with AI

Scientists at the Terasaki Institute for Biomedical Innovation (TIBI), have employed artificial intelligence techniques to improve the design and production of nanofibers used in wearable nanofiber acoustic energy harvesters ...

Two-dimensional nanomaterial sets expansion record

It is a common hack to stretch a balloon out to make it easier to inflate. When the balloon stretches, the width crosswise shrinks to the size of a string. Noah Stocek, a Ph.D. student collaborating with Western physicist ...

NASA to demonstrate autonomous navigation system on moon

When the second CLPS (Commercial Lunar Payload Services) delivery is launched to the moon in mid-February, its NASA payloads will include an experiment that could change how human explorers, rovers, and spacecraft independently ...
