Cement is one of those common building materials that you can find just about anywhere. When the cement starts to get cracked, fixing it is generally an easy task that involves widening the crack slightly before filling it with more READ MORE

Using Computers to Identify Deadly Bacteria Japanese researchers develop a machine learning tool to identify deadly bacteria species based on their unique growth characteristics.

Various industries rely on accurate detection and identification of bacterial species. For example, food-processing plants often have to test their products for bacterial contamination to ensure it is safe for human consumption. In hospitals, a quick and accurate method to READ MORE
