Sneaky robots made Austrian bees talk to Swiss fish, a Japanese and Russian team revived a muscle cell from a woolly mammoth that died 28,000 years ago, and a California Institute of Technology team has a design for spaceships powered by a light beam.
The team developed an ultrathin semiconductor and rectifier just a few atoms thick to build a flexible “rectifier” that captures energy from Wi-Fi signals and converts it into direct current.
A team from Microsoft and the University of Washington have turned on the first automated system that can store and retrieve information from synthetic DNA.
Africa’s wild elephants and rhinos are being driven to the edge of extinction: poachers, trophy hunters, and wildlife traffickers are killing or capturing three rhinos per day and up to four elephants every hour, on average.
By tying together multiple data sources and using AI algorithms, the ERP Air Force’s “Find my Elephants” tool can help conservationists act speedily enough to make a difference.
Powered by determination and SAP, ERP is now changing people’s lives in poor, rural areas and saving more wild elephants and rhinos.
