Five Ways Artificial Intelligence Is Reshaping Agriculture

Five Ways Artificial Intelligence Is Reshaping Agriculture

Agriculture is the ultimate form of applied science. It may be too late for farms to replace farmers with machines. That’s why big data and artificial intelligence (AI) are the most promising tools for boosting crop yields in a sustainable way. Also, they can prevent starvation in regions with poor food safety and delivery coverage. Many researchers suggest that AI-based technology in agriculture lags behind other industries due to a lack of data and problems with analyzing images and...
Are Electric Vehicles Better for The Environment?

Are Electric Vehicles Better for The Environment?

Electric vehicles or EVs use batteries instead of petrol for power. With zero emissions, this key technology might be our great hope to reduce oil use and turn back climate change. As policy-makers and car manufacturers around the world are making the shift toward an EV-dominated future, we have to ask: Are they really as clean and green as they’re made out to be? There are a lot of factors that determine a car’s impact on the environment. While EVs don’t exhaust harmful gases themselves, they...
Can Bacteria End Our Plastic Waste Crisis?

Can Bacteria End Our Plastic Waste Crisis?

Polyethylene terephthalate or PET can be found virtually everywhere – drinking bottles, food containers, synthetic clothes, carpets, and solar panels to name a few. It’s easy to produce and durable. Unfortunately, PET is a double-edged sword. Ideonella Sakaiensis also known as plastic-eating bacteria The qualities that make it so useful are the same ones that make it an environmental juggernaut. This incredibly tough material can last for decades, ending up in forests, beaches, rivers,...

Apple and Xiaomi rounded out the top five with 16 percent each. Oppo has beaten all smartphone brands...
ASML EUV: Creating Tomorrow’s Chips

ASML EUV: Creating Tomorrow’s Chips

What is an Extreme Ultraviolet Lithography Machine? An extreme ultraviolet lithography machine or EUV is a technological wonder. This lithography system uses ultraviolet light to create billions or even trillions of microscopic structures on ultra-thin slices of silicon. These highly complex structures are the building blocks of integrated circuits or chips found in computers, smartphones, cameras, cars, and countless other devices. Generally, having more structures inside a chip will give you...
