Soon, robots that are able to form `swarms` without using any memory

Washington : Researchers have found a way to develop hundreds – or even thousands – of tiny robots cluster to carry out tasks without using any memory or processing power. The team, working in the Sheffield Centre for Robotics (SCentRo), [...]

How ice ages actually came about

Washington : Scientists have found new relationships between deep-sea temperature and ice-volume changes to provide crucial new information about how the ice ages came about. Researchers from the University of Southampton, the National Oceanography [...]

People undergoing weight loss surgery experience changes in appetite, taste and smell

Washington : A new study suggests that patients who undergo Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery, during which one’s stomach is made smaller and small intestines shortened, report changes in appetite, taste and smell. These sensory changes are [...]

Fossil of 325-million-year-old shark-like specie sheds light on evolution of jaws

Washington : The skull of a newly discovered 325-million-year-old shark-like species suggests that early cartilaginous and bony fishes have more to tell us about the early evolution of jawed vertebrates—including humans—than modern sharks [...]

Floating nuclear plants could withstand tsunamis

Washington : A new design for nuclear plants built on floating platforms could help avoid disasters like Fukushima. Such floating plants would be designed to be automatically cooled by the surrounding seawater in a worst-case scenario, which [...]
