Researchers recommend satellite technology as a way to create more effective, 'true' shark sanctuaries

When they first set out to follow grey reef sharks around the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI), Darcy Bradley and her colleagues intended to survey their movement in the protected waters there.

Public opinion on GMOs might impact similar technologies in stores

If an individual is skeptical about the safety of genetically modified foods, chances are they're wary of nanotechnology, too.

New memristor boosts accuracy and efficiency for neural networks on an atomic scale

Just like their biological counterparts, hardware that mimics the neural circuitry of the brain requires building blocks that can adjust how they synapse, with some connections strengthening at the

New reservoir computer marks first-ever microelectromechanical neural network application

As artificial intelligence has become increasingly sophisticated, it has inspired renewed efforts to develop computers whose physical architecture mimics the human brain. One approach, called

New, durable catalyst for key fuel cell reaction may prove useful in eco-friendly vehicles

One factor holding back the widespread use of eco-friendly hydrogen fuel cells in cars, trucks and other vehicles is the cost of the platinum catalysts that make the cells work. One approach to using

Algorithmic innovation may help reduce invasive heart procedures

Doctors use invasive procedures to map the hearts of patients suffering from atrial fibrillation, an abnormal heart rhythm, to decide whether an ablation procedure to remove heart tissue is likely to

This RNA-based technique could make gene therapy more effective

Delivering functional genes into cells to replace mutated genes, an approach known as gene therapy, holds potential for treating many types of diseases. The earliest efforts to deliver genes to

Population aging and decrease may have socioeconomic and environmental benefits

Environmental scientists argue that societies should embrace population aging and decrease in an opinion appearing October 16 in the journal Trends in Ecology & Evolution. They cite multiple

Delivery startup Instacart valued at $7.6 bn in funding round

Online grocery delivery startup Instacart, a symbol of the "on demand" economy, said Tuesday it raised $600 million in capital, at a valuation of $7.6 billion.

Innuendo alone can fuel conspiracy theories, research shows

Innuendo alone in news coverage can fuel belief in conspiracy theories, according to a new study.

Toward unhackable communication: Single particles of light could bring the 'quantum internet'

Hacker attacks on everything from social media accounts to government files could be largely prevented by the advent of quantum communication, which would use particles of light called "photons" to

Google CEO says 'important to explore' China project

Google chief executive Sundar Pichai has acknowledged publicly for the first time that the tech giant is considering a search engine for China, saying it could offer "better information" to people

Report: Uber IPO could put company value at $120 billion

Uber may put forth an initial public offering early next year that values the ride-hailing business at as much as $120 billion, according to a media report.

Researchers take genomic sequencing to the farm to help transform lives

In a world first, international scientists including a University of Otago researcher, have used whole genome sequencing to help diagnose a plant pathogen destroying crops on African farms,

Women are less likely to be rewarded for innovations in the workplace

Organizations are eager to find innovative workers because of their ability to see opportunities for improvement in areas that might otherwise go overlooked. But research shows that if these

A stabilizing influence enables lithium-sulfur battery evolution

In late July of 2008 a British solar plane set an unofficial flight-endurance record by remaining aloft for more than three days straight. Lithium-sulfur batteries emerged as one of the great

Global hotspots for potential water disputes

Scientists of the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) have identified the hotspots where competition over the use of shared water resources could lead to disagreements between countries.

Proteins wear clothes – and understanding their fashion choices could help us treat cancer

We humans are top of the evolutionary tree, the most complex organisms that have ever lived on Earth in five billion years. Right? One way we might actually prove our biological complexity is to look

How insects can help fight hunger in the world

Insects could be a game changer in the race to combat food insecurity and achieve zero hunger – the theme of this year's World Food Day.

Evolution is at work in computers as well as life sciences

Artificial intelligence research has a lot to learn from nature. My work links biology with computation every day, but recently the rest of the world was reminded of the connection: The 2018 Nobel
