This summer, three undergraduate students at the University of Pennsylvania are studying the best ways to research and promote effective charitable giving.
A robot named THORwin, designed by Penn students is featured for winning the “adult-size humanoid” category in the RoboCup soccer final competition.
By encoding information in photons via their spin, “photonic” computers could be orders of magnitude faster and efficient than their current-day counterparts. Likewise, encoding information in the spin of electrons, rather than just their quantity, could make “spintronic” computers with similar advantages.
A scar might be a reminder of an accident or surgery, but the fibrous tissue that makes up a scar also forms after a heart attack and arises in solid tumors as well as in chronic diseases such as liver cirrhosis and muscular dystrophy. Implanted medical devices and materials are similarly surrounded by fibrous capsules that impede their function.
