Brain Training

At the University of Cambridge, ‘brain training’ app was developed in order to help people suffering from obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). The app manages the symptoms of patients which include the fear of contamination and washes their hands excessively. Professors at the Department of Psychiatry – Barbara Sahakian and Baland Jalal – explained effects and improvement in the patient suffering from OCD within one-week training by the app. The most common

Artificial Moon

China is planning the launch of own ‘artificial moon’ by the end of 2020 as replacement to the streetlamps and lowering the electricity consumption mainly in urban areas. In the Chengdu city present in the southwestern Sichuan state, the ‘illumination satellite’ is under development. This satellite will shine like the real moon, but eight times brighter than the moon. It will be the first man-made moon which will be launched

Quantum Computers

For several years, quantum computers have merely remained a conjecture. However today, quantum technology is witnessing a notable rise in attention and investment from intelligence agencies, governments, and companies. Now, researchers have led to a notable development in this field, which could well be the cornerstone towards the realization of quantum computers. While conventional computers rely on how or what of the two binary digits 0 and 1 is represented

Smart Watch

New smart watch algorithms can help identify why you are sleeping poorly Smart watches have come a long way in recent years and can be made to do fascinating things. Equipped with algorithms that have potential to collect rich data from these wearable, these data can be utilized to obtain useful, practical recommendations. One such application can be identifying healthy sleep patterns in wearers. Enabled by algorithms, smart watches can

Acoustic-enabled Tech may impart Contextual Awareness to Smart Devices

Smart devices are profoundly interactive, with other devices and people, but do they possess ‘environmental awareness’? Not yet. Context-based awareness and computing is still an unexplored realm in smart device technology. But things may soon change, if recent works by a team of researchers at the Carnegie Mellon University are to be believed. Smart devices may pick up specific sound vibrations and map them to human activity; also, they can

MP3
