Gaberlunzie says have your pick of two items involved with TV for Mother's day. For some fated reason (Ides style) Kannuu is partnering with UK and European multiple systems operators to make online TV searching increasingly intuitive.
As Superstem sees single atoms, computer research simulating corannulene (a uniquely shaped carbon molecule) finds its properties might help overcome the difficulty experienced to date in building molecular sized circuits.
A new super powerful STEM (Scanning Transition Electron) Microscope that can pinpoint the position of single atoms, helping scientists push field boundaries of advanced materials, healthcare and power generation, has been unveiled by EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council).
As the £60m boost for community scale renewable energy project is in Loch Lomond National Park, Crianlarich’s powerful start to renewable energy scheme could also be echoed by parallel complimentary networking for broadband to local communities, so that the energy funding could more efficiently afford better links for remote Scottish rural communities than to date BT has to date been able to supply although it is recorded as trialling white space.
VTT Technical Centre of Finland has developed and used a mass production method based on printing technologies that allows manufacturing of decorative, organic solar panels. Design freedom improves the panels range of applications on the surfaces of interior and exterior building spaces. VTT is also studying the feasibility of mass production printing technology of solar panels made from inorganic perovskite materials.
Superfast broadband boost for the Scottish countryside with an extra £20.9m has been announced by Government, to help business start-up and job creation in hard-to-reach areas of Scotland - a very welcome boost to rural communities.
As ForArgyll web enquires how many nuclear power lighthouses, buoys and oil rigs are there in the UK, after it discovered a little island off the Irish west coast in County Donegal – Rathlin O’Birn was nuclear powered, the new technology nuclear arena, has Ontario Canada startup Terrestrial Energy commercialising a new reactor design, based on work done at ORNL (Oak Ridge National laboratory) in Tennessee.
Arria NLG a leader in the development and deployment of NLG (Natural Language Generation) technologies developed at Aberdeen University has an early stage partnership with the IBM Watson Group. As part of the Watson developer community, Arria NLG will prototype analytics products for the oil and gas sector.
Neuroscientists at the German Primate Centre can predict grip movements of the hand by measuring brain cell activity and have built a refined robot hand. They analyse the brain activity of non human primates during the execution of hand grasping movements. The neuronal information, recorded with fine electrodes in the cortex, could one day be used to control a robotic hand as a prosthesis for paralysed people.
Britain's telecoms industry consolidation has just speeded up with the Hutchison Whampoa Ltd agreement to buy Telefonica's British mobile unit O2 for up to £10.25 billion. Hutchison already operates Three Mobile network in Britain, and by buying about 22 million subscribers to O2 from the Spanish group will make it the country's top mobile operator.
Aberystwyth University space scientists contribute perseverance and skills with help of camera's and software to the joyous re-discovery of the Beagle 2 Mars Lander believed lost on Christmas Day 2003.
Thync justifiably won its first award at CES to kick off the new year! With previews for almost 100 business leaders and journalists, who had fun personally trying its Vibes for energy or calm - the effects that were greatly appreciated at a busy trade show like CES.
Dubbed after the "unecessary" letter and for some the unlucky 13, IBM headlines the machine as the most powerful and secure yet! The first mainframe in history designed for growth of the mobile app economy. IBM's first new mainframe in three years - represents continued investment in core hardware systems that can process 2.5 billion business transactions per day, or the equivalent of 100 Cyber Mondays.
For Ishbell MacPhail, general manager of Dell Scotland, trying to ensure a female STEM balance for the company’s IT staff, finds her also acutely aware of the need for "best candidate for the job" balance, not to mention a wider need for overall diversity in staff with a wide range of attributes as sales skills, leadership, and creativity.
