India’s Daily COVID Cases May Touch 2.87 Lakh By Winter 2021: MIT Report

New Delhi: In the absence of a COVID-19 vaccine or drugs, the researchers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have warned that India might record 2.87 lakh coronavirus cases per day by the end of winter 2021. The world may witness 249 million (24.9 crore) cases and 1.8 million (18 lakh) deaths by spring 2021 […]

Tiny robotic thread can slip through brain's blood vessels

Washington: Researchers have developed a magnetically steerable, thread-like robot that may actively glide through narrow, winding pathways like the brain’s tiny blood vessels. The study, published in the journal Science Robotics, revealed that the magnetically controlled device could one day deliver clot-reducing therapies in response to strokes or other brain blockages, Xinhua reported. “If acute […]

Researchers build AI system to connect vision, touch

New York: A team of researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have come up with a predictive Artificial Intelligence (AI) that can learn to see by touching and to feel by seeing. While our sense of touch gives us capabilities to feel the physical world, our eyes help us understand the full picture […]

MIT researchers develop MRI sensor to peek deep inside brain

New York: Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have devised a new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique to image calcium activity deep in the brain. Calcium is a critical signalling molecule for most cells, and it is especially important in neurons. Using the non-invasive technique, the researchers can track signalling processes inside the […]

India's biotech queen Kiran Mazumdar elected to MIT board

Bengaluru: India’s biotech queen Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw got elected as a full-term member of the MIT Corporation, the Board of Trustees of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), her company Biocon announced on Thursday. “Shaw is among the eight members who will serve the five-year term on the Board from July 1,” said the city-based biotech […]

MIT develops device that can transcribe words spoken 'in your head'

New York: Researchers including two of Indian origin at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have developed a computer interface that can transcribe words that the user verbalises internally but does not actually speak aloud. Electrodes in the device pick up neuromuscular signals in the jaw and face that are triggered by internal verbalisations — saying […]

Simple test may predict preterm births

New York: Researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have found that a simple test of cervical mucus may reveal pregnant women’s risk of going into labour too early. Up to 18 per cent of babies born worldwide arrive before they are full-term, defined as 37 weeks of gestation. The study, published in the journal […]

Apple hires man who 3D printed his brain tumour

New York: Apple has hired Steven Keating, the doctoral student from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) who made a 3D printout of his own brain after he was diagnosed with a tumour, a media report said. According to a report in CNBC on Friday, it is still not known whether Keating is working on one of […]

Plants can replace polymers for 3-D printing

New York: Plants could be a renewable and biodegradable alternative to the polymers currently used in 3-D printing materials, researchers have found. A new paper, published in the journal Advanced Materials Technologies, found that cellulose might become an abundant material to print with. “Cellulose is the most important component in giving wood its mechanical properties. […]

System to repair software bugs automatically

New York:A new system that repairs dangerous software bugs by automatically importing functionality from other, more secure apps in just two minutes has been found, says researchers. The study was done by researchers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The system called CodePhage repairs software errors by transferring code from a “donor” application to the […]

Light energy to help retrieve lost memories in amnesiacs

Washington: Memories that have been lost as a result of amnesia can be retrieved by activating brain cells with light, a study suggested. The findings, published in the US journal Science yesterday, may help answer a fiercely-debated question in neuroscience as to whether memories lost to amnesia are completely erased or merely unable to be […]

Scientists use bacteria to detect cancer, diabetes

Washington: Two research teams said they have used Escherichia coli (E. coli) as diagnostic tools to detect liver cancer and diabetes. In the first study, researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the University of California at San Diego used a harmless strain of E. coli called Nissle 1917, which is marketed as […]

India's killer swine flu turns more dangerous

Washington: The swine flu strain that has killed more than 1,200 people in India since December has acquired mutations that make it more dangerous than previously circulating strains of H1N1 influenza, a new MIT study suggests. The study by two Indian-American researchers contradicts previous reports from Indian health officials that the strain has not changed […]
