Most humans are biased. But did you know that machine learning algorithms can also be biased? Dr. Xia "Ben" Hu has been bestowed a joint NSF-Amazon award to fix this problem and make artificial intelligence fairer.
Engineers at Texas A&M University have developed a one-of-a-kind diagnostic software called Distribution Fault Anticipation that can discover problems on utility lines before outages, before power failures spark deadly wildfires, or before fears of wildfires prompt massive, pre-emptive power outages.
Liquid crystals are popular candidates for many applications ranging from monitor screens to solar panels. Texas A&M University researchers have now found that temperature gradients are a simple, yet novel way to grow and move high-quality liquid crystals.
Nuclear Science, technology and education for Molten Salt Reactors and the Safety Assessment of Molten Salt Fast Reactor led a summer bootcamp on the campus of Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands.
Dr. Nimir O. Elbashir and his research team are working on a novel process that could help gas-producing countries process natural gas without significantly contributing to CO2 emissions by converting natural gas into valuable hydrocarbon products, including ultraclean fuels or useful chemicals.
Texas A&M University is part of the National Alliance for Water Innovation consortium, which was recently awarded a five-year, $100 million Energy-Water Desalination Hub by the U.S. Department of Energy that will address water security issues in the United States.
Currently we are facing serious issues related to global warming due to the excessive use of coal and petroleum. Researchers are collaborating to work on a new porous polymer that can store natural gas, a cleaner alternative, more effectively than anything currently being used.
