Soft assistive robotic wearables get a boost from rapid design tool

Researchers have created a design and fabrication tool for soft pneumatic actuators for integrated sensing, which can power personalised healthcare, smart homes, and gaming.

How can we reduce the carbon footprint of global computing?

Workshop highlights how new approaches to computing can save energy and help the planet.

ADAPT researcher proposes a new way to decarbonise cryptocurrencies

In our research group at TCD, writes Dr Hitesh Tewari, we have been looking into mechanisms to improve the energy efficiency and throughput of blockchains. We began by asking ourselves the question: what if one could see the progress of the other participants in the mining race?

Computerised, rolling DNA motors move molecular robotics to next level

The motors can sense chemical information in their environment, process that information, and then respond accordingly, mimicking some basic properties of living cells.

Automating endoscopic tissue characterisation in cancer patients with computer vision

Dr Ronan Cahill, University College Dublin, discusses a promising initiative for precision surgery, where his team use an application that employs computer-vision, point-tracking algorithms to monitor changes in indocyanine green fluorescence intensity in near-infrared videos, automating what was previously a slow, labour-intensive process, while delivering more precise and clinically interesting results.

Computational modelling guides development of new materials

Chemical engineers use neural networks to discover the properties of metal-organic frameworks, for catalysis and other applications.
