"Rockd" serves both amateur rock lovers and professional geologists. For amateurs, "the goal is to help people discover the natural history that is recorded all around them. People see rocks at highway cuts, and some may wonder what they are and when they formed. The answers to many of these questions exist in the databases that we tap into."

A Novel Way to Power Greener Homes

Greener_Homes_900px.jpg

DOE’s Argonne National Laboratory, Colorado-based Air Squared, Inc., Mississippi State University and Purdue University launched efforts to develop the first residential CHP system that uses small generators. The group’s proposal to optimize combined heating and power systems (CHP) for residential housing earned $2.7 million in seed money in October from the U.S. Department of Energy's Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E).

Identifying Children and Saving Lives One Thumbprint at a Time

MSU Prof. Anil Jain and his team of biometrics researchers demonstrated in a first-of-its-kind study that digital scans of a young child's fingerprints can be correctly identified one year later. A child could be identified by a simple fingerprint scan at each medical visit, allowing them to get proper medical care such as life-saving vaccinations or food supplements.

University of Southern California to Show How Wearable Technology Can Improve Cancer Treatment

ATOMHP02_web.jpg

Researchers at the University of Southern California will demonstrate how using wearable technology and smartphones can improve cancer treatment at a White House event on Oct. 3. The USC project will be one of the participants in the Cancer Moonshot exhibit championed by Vice President Joe Biden. Researchers aim to provide doctors with real-time patient data from wearable technology and patient-reported experiences so that physicians can base their treatment decisions on objective measures rather than just subjective and episodic observations.

New $5M Grant to Support Robotics Research for Spinal Cord Injury Patients

Balance is an essential component of daily life, something many of us take for granted. But not everyone can. Studies have shown, however, that activity-based interventions offer a promising approach, and Columbia Engineering Professor Sunil Agrawal is at the forefront of research efforts to improve recovery through the development of robotic devices that help patients retrain their movements. He recently won a five-year $5 million grant from the New York State Spinal Cord Injury Board.
