Industries are responsible for most of the carbon dioxide that reaches the atmosphere. The Valencian engineer Rubén Mocholí Montañés presents how these emissions can be reduced through new models to trap and take advantage of the CO2 generated in these industrial processes.
Their works have been essential to contain the floods and save thousands of lives, but they also revolutionized the way of building bridges or even raising them in suspension, laying the foundations for current construction systems. We explore some of the leading figures to understand the history of modern engineering.
Modular structures, a huge workforce and great planning, among other factors, are behind the last feat of the Asian country: the construction of a hospital in Wuhan for the management of patients with the coronavirus. But this is not the first building that China raises against the clock.
Social networks and gaming are bringing immersive technologies closer to the general public, but their massive implementation requires, as was the case with tablets or smartphones, a technology that allows their practical use, a public receptive to the benefits of their applications and its marketing at an affordable price. Are the conditions in place to make the promise of smart glasses a reality?
Estonia plans to apply artificial intelligence in the courts; China massively monitors its population with facial recognition; in the US, computers help distribute health resources. The implementation of algorithms for decision making, while trying to improve processes, also presents important biases and raises concerns about their viability.
