The fifth generation mobile network has reached an inflection point in the crisis brought on by the coronavirus. On the one hand, there is the economic boost and also new applications that will facilitate the better management of healthcare and control the pandemic; on the other hand, the slowdown in the deployment of networks and global coverage. Covid and 5G have a much more complex relationship than conspiracy theories suggest.
4D printing promises intelligent materials, capable of adapting and changing based on external stimuli. From pipes that can automatically repair themselves to programmable biological tissues, the applications of these new structures are already advancing a total transformation of sectors such as construction, medicine or robotics.
Considered the most widely used artificial product in the world, concrete is also one of the materials whose manufacturing process has the greatest environmental impact. The risk of its intensive use, favored by urban concentration, tries to curb with solutions that seek to reduce the carbon footprint to zero by 2050.
We learn from nature to respect it, and we familiarize ourselves with its processes in order to advance in a sustainable way.
Predicting when and how seismic movements will occur on the Earth is one of the great aspirations of scientists. Technologies derived from artificial intelligence such as big data analysis or deep learning are beginning to provide clues about how to achieve this: neural networks or heat maps may be the key to predicting earthquakes.
