How Society is Changing in the Second Machine Age
Technology is shaping society, as it has always done so, but at a rate never experienced before in the history of mankind. This department is tracking the impact technology has on the fabric of our societies and humanity in general.
A new study that utilized electronic sensors discovered prosthesis users rely more heavily on their intact limbs to perform every tasks in their daily lives.
Scientists have brought together an interdisciplinary team of biogeographers and climate modelers to create a virtual world – a place to do virtual experiments.
Your torso is more intuitive – and more precise – than joysticks for piloting drones, both simulated and real, according to a recent study by EPFL scientists.
Bandages with integrated pH and temperature sensors and electronically triggered drug release are designed to improve healing.
Researchers at Tokyo Tech have developed flexible terahertz imagers based on chemically “tunable” carbon nanotube materials. The findings expand the scope of terahertz applications to include wrap-around, wearable technologies as well as large-area photonic devices.
Engineers have created an electronic ‘skin’ in an effort to restore a real sense of touch for amputees using prosthetics.
A team of undergraduate students who envisioned a new way to harness design and biotechnology, has been selected as a finalist to present at the Biodesign Challenge Summit at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City.
New technology could enable remote control of drug delivery, sensing, and other medical applications.
Technology provides interventional radiologists with 360-degree view of internal anatomy.
System to predict epileptic seizures developed by Dr Omid Kavehei designed to give 30-minute warning using data from a non-surgical device and is based on latest artificial intelligence and machine learning.
