Innovation to Aid Reopening Amidst Plummeting GDP: AI-Based Social Distancing
Futuristic innovation has always come to the rescue in times of dire need. While the biologists and virologists are taking the bull by its horns, engineers and techies play an important role in minimizing damage. Read the story of one inspiring innovation that has its roots in the labs of IITKGP.
Life, livelihood, and learning: What higher education will look like in the wake of Covid-19
In the midst of the current Pandemic students, researchers and professors must continue to operate as well as possible. We present a brief look into some of the problems they are facing and how Universities are trying to address them.
Code for the Stars: Programming the world's largest telescope
This isn't so much a story about the Thirty Meter Telescope - an event that astronomers around the world wait for with baited breath - as the technology that's helping build it: software and hardware with a distinctively Indian flavour.
From Chatbots to Chromosomes: How scientists are battling the Coronavirus
An exploration into recent advances in Statistical Modelling, Natural Language Processing and Genome Sequencing which are being used to Combat the Coronavirus on different fronts of battle - Containment, Control and Cure.
SARS-CoV-2: Where is the vaccine?
As the world is embattled with COVID-19, the scientific fraternity is working day and night to find a more foolproof solution to the outbreak than just exercising social distancing - namely, a vaccine. This article aims to explore the efforts to develop one.
Taming Turbulence- Active flow control
The ubiquitous turbulence manifests itself in several seemingly unrelated phenomena, from solar flares to rustling of leaves to the very familiar (and often scary) intense vibration of aircraft. It is an equally important subject in engineering as much it is in science, or perhaps even more.
Crowdsourcing to Combat Natural Disasters
Confusion, paranoia and the overall lack of situational awareness is the largest obstacle faced by relief workers and victims during a disaster or an emergency situation. However, crowdsourcing and some algorithmic implementations can make a relief operation successful.
