Excavations near the central Himalayas have thrown up evidence that a great earthquake is imminent. The Himalayas have been under a quiet spell for too long.
Researchers have successfully tested a drug delivery system in mice that can be controlled remotely with micro-shock waves. This innovative system carries medicine in tiny capsules, and delivers them when hit by a micro-shock wave.
Using 85 different indicators, researchers have found that "India significantly lags behind in all aspects of sustainability compared to high performing national electricity systems in the world".
A first of its kind study that examines the life of different types of waste in landfills, with many lessons for city planners, especially in rapidly urbanizing India.
Researchers have developed a couple of novel “inverters” for driving huge electrical machines in the industry. Inverters are circuits that that convert DC voltages to a form that can be used for industrial applications. The circuits were designed by a team of researchers from the Indian Institute of Science, University of Seville (Spain), Government Engineering College, Thrissur and Norwegian University of Science and Technology.
Hydrologists and water resource managers have long depended on historical data for predicting droughts. However, according to a new study, this route may not give reliable predictions due to climate change caused by human activities. The study was carried out by researchers from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore.
This year’s Infosys Prize in the Engineering and Computer Science category has gone to Jayant Haritsa, a computer scientist who has made highly creative strides in the design of such database engines. He is a Senior Professor at the Supercomputer Education & Research Center and the Chair of the Department of Computer Science & Automation, Indian Institute of Science.
