Food Science

Simply put, food science is an advanced discipline that seeks to understand various aspects of food. Nutritionists, engineers and food technologists have for a long time been interested in understanding how food products come to be, how they are grown and how their pedigree can be improved to provide greater quality at the processing stage. In doing so, scientists manage to keep existing delicacies at their peak condition and improve on low quality strains of particular products.

Food science extends beyond the basic practice of analyzing various products for their components and seeks to understand the distribution of vitamins, enzymes and minerals in every single grain. It also involves laying down scenarios for processing, preservation, packaging and the modification of food substances to fit into certain marketing and consumption profiles. Experts tasked with injecting new foods and diversifying existing varieties work to ensure that the right health protocols are followed in every single step of their work. This probably explains the presence of professional associations in the field.

Growing food in an easy and affordable way

Agriculture and ScienceAgriculture plays a key role in the economy of every country. A country without sustainable food reserves will be forced to import food on a regular basis and this will have a huge impact on the government budget. Most government worldwide has put a lot of money towards improving agriculture. Large scale agriculture is practiced worldwide as a means of providing food for the people living in the urban areas. However, with the advancement in Agriculture and science, homeowners can cut down on costs of groceries by growing foods in an easy an affordable way. Through science, homeowners in urban areas can easily grow groceries in a limited space with ease helping save on expenses.

French Scientist Announces Singularity Now Real

terminatorAssociated Press
The Associated Press is reporting that an international team of scientists has announced that the long-awaited and hotly debated “Singularity” has been achieved. Dr. Renee Deschamps, who headed up the top-secret team, held a carefully-worded press conference this morning to announce that the first human hybrid, commonly known as a cyborg had been developed through the work of dozens of scientists who had been working on the project for the past 26 years.
The scientists’ work had been kept under tight security because not everyone is enthusiastic about the possible consequences of the development. Prominent bioethicist, Dr. Charles Rogers, of UCLA, has publically expressed grave concerns about the potential for disaster in creating human hybrids which could quickly surpass human intelligence capabilities, yet could not be invested with any human-identified morality or values. “Any such hybrids would have the potential of being the equivalent of intellectually-driven sociopaths,” Rogers said, “with capabilities no purely human being could match or defend against.” Continue Reading

mind controlled robot

Insight into mind controlled robots

mind controlled robotMind or rather brain controlled robots are robots that are programmed by a human’s thoughts. This is not only things that are widely seen or anticipated to be in movies but with the CNRS-AIST research organization in Japan who are working tirelessly to be in reality. However this mostly is to benefit people with serious medical conditions. This is thanks to the introduction of the robotic system. This system is a major relief to scientists since it is not complicated to use and it has simple instructions because it does use the human being’s mind in order to operate.

The robotic system comprises of three divisions whereby the foremost is a cap which is usually worn by the person in which it incarcerates the patterns that are made by the brain waves. The second division is a sign processor that deduces and understands the brain waves then revolves them into various guidelines that can easily be comprehended by the robot. Continue Reading

autonomous flying robot

The Smart Bird that avoids obstacles

 autonomous flying robot Researchers from Cornell University have succeeded in developing an intelligent robot propelled through flying. The robot prototype is just intelligent like a normal bird as it can avoid hitting objects in its way through maneuvering.

The flying robot has the capability to fly through tunnels, dense forest and buildings that have been damaged. With this development in technological research, the flying robot could be welcomed in helping people during rescue missions. Though there has been successful development of smaller machines that can fly, they usually use the GPS system for navigation. Continue Reading

Hard x-ray Angle-Resolved PhotoEmission

A major breakthrough in spintronics

Hard x-ray Angle-Resolved PhotoEmission Traditionally, data processing relies on the “charge” of an electron, however a new technology called “Spintronic” is looking to turn the semi-coductor industry on its head by using an electron’s “spin” instead. This development should allow for high speed, micro-sized, and highly efficient storage and data processing semi-conductors.

The most important development for spintronics has been the development of dilute-magnetic semiconductors. These semiconductors are similar to traditional semi-conductors, however magnetic atoms are added, making the semi-conductors ferromagnetic. Ferromagnets are permanent magnets. This represents a significant step forward as one of the largest impediments to understanding ferromagnetism in dilute-magnetic semi-conductors has been removed.

This research is the result of the coordinated efforts of numberous researchers under the leadership by the U.S.-Department of Energy’s Berkeley Lab. By using the new Hard x-ray Angle-Resolved-PhotoEmission Spectroscopy (HARPES) technique scientists have discovered that gallium manganese Arsenide gains its ferromagnetism from two separate mechanisms.

self driving car

Are self-driving cars the future?

self driving car Self-driving cars once only existed in futuristic science-fiction films, but as with other technologies that could previously only be dreamed of, it’s now becoming a reality. In honour of the recent legalization of self-driving cars in California, we asked car designer Chris Bangle, of Chris Bangle Associates S.R.L. for all the information.

At the moment, self-driving cars look much like every other car already on the road, with a computer taking the place of the human brain. Chris Bangle believes that by 2020 they will be a realistic option for market, but before that they’ll need to be streamlined. If, as he believes, self-driving cars become widely accepted by 2050, what will they look like? Will we recognise them as cars, or will they become a completely different form of transport?

New technology represents significant step in mind-controlled robots

robot armJosé del R. Millán’s computer science lab in Switzerland has, over recent months, been the testing ground for an innovation that could potentially change the lives of thousands of people.
A small, round robot has been bumping its way through the offices. You could be forgiven for being unimpressed if you were to see the robot on its own, with no knowledge as to how it is being controlled. However, when you discover that the robot is being controlled by a paralyzed patient in a clinic over 60 miles away, everything changes.

How is this possible? Brain waves. The robot is being run by a unique interface between the brain and a machine, an experimental system of “shared control” developed by Millán which merges conscious thought and algorithms. This creates a kind of dialogue Continue Reading

All About Cherenkov Radiation

What is Cherenkov radiation?

cherenkov-radiationCherenkov radiation is the light produced when charged particles such as electrons pass through a
medium that is optically transparent at speed that is greater than speed of light through this medium. Cherenkov radiation is emitted when the molecules of the medium are rapidly turning back to their original start after being polarized by the charged particles.

The Cherenkov radiation has a characteristic bluish white glow and can be observed in water pools shielding nuclear reactors. In nuclear reactors, electrons emitted by the nuclear reactors travel through the water at speeds greater than the velocity of light, which is approximately 75% of the speed of light through a vacuum.
