Breakthrough optical sensor mimics human eye, a key step toward better AI — ScienceDaily

Researchers at Oregon State University are making key advances with a new type of optical sensor that more closely mimics the human eye’s ability to perceive changes in its visual field. The sensor is a major breakthrough for fields such as image recognition, robotics and artificial intelligence. Findings by OSU College of Engineering researcher John […]

A first-of-its-kind catalyst mimics natural processes to break down plastics — ScienceDaily

While plastics recycling is not new science, current processes don’t make it economically worthwhile — waste plastics get “down-cycled” into lower grade, less useful material. It’s a challenge that continues to be an obstacle in tackling a growing global pollution crisis in single use plastics. A multi-institutional team of scientists led by the U.S. Department […]
