Algorithms learning for large scale facilities
A large scale facility can be described as an object producing, as an output, datasets
D_i, that scientists analyse to obtain results
R_i. The ideal data analysis trajectory for an experiment is thus

The NASA K2 Mission has yet to observe an analog of Tabby's Star
Tabby's Star is a main sequence F-class star (KIC 8462852) observed by the NASA Kepler spacecraft to undergo significant aperiodic dimming activity across a four year baseline. The light curve was noted... continue reading
Heated volumetric extrusion mechanism with co-axial Auger and Moineau pumps for 3D printing from plastic pellets
The higher cost and lower availability of the thermoplastic filaments -compared to pellets- make FDM 3D printers underutilized in developing countries.
We designed a solution to use easily sourced plastic pellets with precise volumetric control... continue reading
Diabetes screening using home blood glucose meter testing during the Dawn Phenomenon period
The Dawn Phenomenon (DP) was first noted in diabetics as an unexpected increase in blood glucose beginning during sleep early in the morning1. The glucose is derived from increased hepatic... continue reading
Handgrip strength and semen quality

Defining And Promoting An Internet Of Things On The Moon
The Internet of Things on the Moon (IoToM) can be a special part of the IoT system, as one of the key techniques for extending the information society from the Earth to the whole solar system. IoToM is composed of the physical devices, vehicles,... continue reading
Biofilms against pathogens for wound healing
Open wound heals faster as they not let anaerobes grow faster in the wound but on the other side open wounds increase risk of infection. Bandage protects from infection but there is low aeration thus delaying healing. Biofilms have tendency to... continue reading
Adaptive myopia: how nearsightedness on land helps us underwater
Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a common condition in humans, making it an interesting trait to study from an evolutionary perspective. Although the morphology of the human eye evolved under conditions whereby light entered predominantly through... continue reading
