    Several months into the pandemic, the CDC now feels confident that people infected with COVID-19 maintain some immunity—but not necessarily for the long haul.

  • Mathematical tool helps calculate properties of quantum materials more quickly
    on August 14, 2020 at 8:33 pm

    Many quantum materials have been nearly impossible to simulate mathematically because the computing time required is too long. Now engineers have demonstrated a way to considerably reduce the computing time. This could accelerate the development of materials for energy-efficient IT technologies of the future.

  • Computer scientists set benchmarks to optimize quantum computer performance
    on August 14, 2020 at 8:33 pm

    Computer scientists have shown that existing compilers, which tell quantum computers how to use their circuits to execute quantum programs, inhibit the computers’ ability to achieve optimal performance. Specifically, their research has revealed that improving quantum compilation design could help achieve computation speeds up to 45 times faster than currently demonstrated.

  • Versatile new material family could build realistic prosthetics, futuristic army platforms
    on August 14, 2020 at 8:33 pm

    Nature’s blueprint for the human limb is a carefully layered structure with stiff bone wrapped in layers of different soft tissue, like muscle and skin, all bound to each other perfectly. Achieving this kind of sophistication using synthetic materials to build biologically inspired robotic parts or multicomponent, complex machines has been an engineering challenge.

  • AI software enables real-time 3D printing quality assessment
    on August 14, 2020 at 8:33 pm

    Researchers have developed artificial intelligence software for powder bed 3D printers that assesses the quality of parts in real time, without the need for expensive characterization equipment.

  • Independence Day: 35 Delhi Police personnel awarded Police Medals

    Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Manishi Chandra, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Govind Sharma, and Inspectors Vinay Kumar, Sanjay Gupta, Rajesh Kumar, Kailash Singh Bisht, Dharmender Kumar, Ravinder Joshi and Vinod Kumar Badola were among those who were awarded the Police Medal for Gallantry.

  • India may allow export of N-95 masks
    on August 15, 2020 at 1:22 am

    Exports were banned in February amid the Covid-19 pandemic even as the government gradually removed restrictions on most personal protective equipment (PPE), including clothing and masks used in healthcare activities where there is risk of contamination.

  • Trump orders ByteDance to divest interest in U.S. TikTok operations within 90 days
    on August 15, 2020 at 1:20 am

    TikTok has come under fire from U.S. lawmakers over national security concerns surrounding data collection. Last week, Trump issued an executive order that would ban U.S. transactions with ByteDance and with Tencent Holdings Ltd’s WeChat in 45 days, escalating a confrontation with Beijing over the future of the global tech industry.

  • Mystery of the dimming of massive star Betelgeuse explained
    by Reuters on August 15, 2020 at 1:00 am

    Its dimming began last October and by mid-February had lost more than two-thirds of its brilliance.
