Diversity May Be Key to Reducing Errors in Quantum Computing

Georgia Institute of Technology

In quantum computing, as in team building, a little diversity can help get the job done better. Georgia Tech researchers have found that by diversifying the types of errors produced by qubits, they can significantly improve the quality of computation results.

Warming Impedes a Coral Defense, but Hungry Fish Enhance It

Georgia Institute of Technology

Corals exude chemical defenses against bacteria, but when heated in the lab, those defenses lost much potency against a pathogen common in coral bleaching. A key coral's defense was heartier when that coral was taken from an area where fishing was banned and plenty of fish were left to eat away seaweed that was overgrowing corals elsewhere.

Hybrid Breakers Could Make Direct Current Practical in High Power Applications

Georgia Institute of Technology

Direct current (DC) has inherent advantages over its alternating current cousin, among them higher efficiency and the ability to carry more power over longer distances. A new circuit breaker under development could made DC use more practical.

Test for Life-Threatening Nutrient Deficit Made From Bacteria Entrails

Georgia Institute of Technology

A pocket-sized zinc deficiency test could be taken to remote regions and evaluated on the spot - no complex transport or conserving necessary. It could lead to comprehensive micronutrient field tests that tell aid agencies just what nutritional deficits are killing people.

Wearable Brain-Machine Interface Could Control a Wheelchair, Vehicle or Computer

Georgia Institute of Technology

Combining new classes of nanomembrane electrodes with flexible electronics and a deep learning algorithm could help disabled people wirelessly control an electric wheelchair, interact with a computer or operate a small robotic vehicle without donning a bulky hair-electrode cap or contending with wires.

A Bathroom Scale Could Monitor Millions with Heart Failure

Georgia Institute of Technology

Millions of heart failure patients are readmitted to hospital every few months to adjust medications. It sends medical costs sky-high and burdens patients' lives. A new bathroom scale could give clinicians health data they need to preempt hospitalizations and treat patients remotely.

Shape-Shifting Robot Built from “Smarticles” Shows New Locomotion Strategy

Georgia Institute of Technology

Building conventional robots typically requires carefully combining components like motors, batteries, actuators, body segments, legs and wheels. Now, researchers have taken a new approach, building a robot entirely from smaller robots known as “smarticles” to unlock the principles of a potentially new locomotion technique.
