The Next Stage in Thermal Materials for 5G

The Next Stage in Thermal Materials for 5G

Whilst much of the "5G" infrastructure is a moderate upgrade on existing 4G technology, there is still plenty of scope for higher frequency deployment such as mmWave devices and very different station types such as small cells. Each of these new developments presents its own technological evolution and with it, thermal challenges.

Cybersecurity Tools to Protect Solar, Wind Power on the Grid

Solar panels and wind turbines, now projected to produce 44% of America's electricity by 2050, present cybersecurity challenges. They have sensors, controllers, actuators or inverters that are directly or indirectly connected to the internet. They're distributed far and wide across the country and the countryside. Many have insecure connectivity to legacy electric grid systems. They have complex physics. They're subject to advanced persistent threats. And there will be more and more of them going online.

Automating Renal Access in Kidney Stone Surgery Using AI Enabled Robot

Automating Renal Access in Kidney Stone Surgery Using AI Enabled Robot

Percutaneous nephrolithotomy is an efficient, minimally-invasive, gold standard procedure used for removing large kidney stones. Creating an access from the skin on the back to the kidney—called renal access, is a crucial yet challenging step in percutaneous nephrolithotomy. A research team questioned if artificial intelligence-powered robotic devices could be used for improved guidance compared with conventional US guidance. Specifically, they wanted to see if the AI-powered device offers better precision in percutaneous renal access along with automated needle trajectory.
