NEDO presents Internet-of-things (IoT) approach for civil engineering

The device (Aerobo marker) is an auxiliary system for civil engineering sites aiming at the reduction of surveying and data post-processing man-hours at construction sites. A GPS-equipped marker which communicates with cameras and drones sends continuously precise images of a construction to the 3D construction model, improving productivity and reducing workhours. The „i-construction“ system was […]

NEDO team develops photoelectron spectroscopy allowing the observation of electrocatalysts under atmospheric pressure

Photoelectron spectroscopy can analyze various substances at the atomic level and is widely used in the study of electrode catalysts in fuel cell development. Up to know, this had to be done under vacuum making observation of the actual operation environment of the electrode catalyst impossible. By using hard x-ray waves generated by synchrotron radiation […]

Prime Minister Shinzo ABE visits RIKEN Kobe Institute for discussion of cell technology

The focus was on clinical research on reginal pigment epithelial cell regeneration from skin cells as pioneered by Masayo TAKAHASHI’s group, in cooperation with Kyoto University’s CiRA. Prime Minister Abe said he hopes that Japan will lead the world in the fields of regenerative medicine and drug discovery. RIKEN news release, June 24, 2017

Team at University of Tokyo develops label-free detection of thrombosis risk using artificial intelligence

The groups around Atsushi YASUMOTO and Yutaka YATOMI developed a rapid and reliable method to detect platelet clumps in human blood, indicators for potential thrombosis. The method is based optofluidic time-stretch microscopy on a microfluidic chip operating at a high throughput of 10000 blood cells per second. By performing cell classification with machine learning, aggregated […]

Japan’s ResearchMap to cooperate with Thomson-Reuter’s Web of Science

ResearchMap is Japan’s largest database which has registered data on some 257,000 researchers in Japan. From June 21, information from Web of Science which covers 18,000 academic journals and 190,000 conference proceedings will be automatically imported to ResearchMap and offer additional information on the targets and performance of Japanese scientists. JST news release, June 21, […]
