A soft robot that could avoid the need for operations
A team of Hong Kong researchers has created a viscous magnetic slime capable of moving through narrow channels, transporting harmful substances and self-repairing. We look at why, despite its enormous potential to travel through the human body and avoid the need for invasive operations, it still has limitations and raises some open questions.
We advance towards the connection between robots and people
More accessible training and skill recycling throughout people’s work lives will be determinant in doing so to improve the competitivity of human talent and organizations.
The promise of nanosurgeons to defeat cancer
From nanorobot surgeons that could defeat cancer to nanobiosensors that detect deadly diseases at very early stages, if there is one field in which nanotechnology can bring about a real revolution, it is medicine. We take a look at the hurdles that several promising projects have to overcome to make their way into hospitals.
The first city run by artificial intelligence
From robots that deliver coffee to chairs that rearrange themselves after a meeting, this is the challenge facing two large companies with an ambitious goal: to transform an area equivalent to about 200 football fields into a smart city project run solely by artificial intelligence.
With Sacyrian accent
Our colleague, Rafael Gómez de Parada, focuses and provides insight on a current debate, with arguments supported by many, but rejected by other experts.
