Jeff Bezos-Backed Lab Hired Nobel Laureate Top Scientists to Beat Death

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has assembled an all-star team of scientists, including Nobel laureates to start Altos Labs that will use cellular reprogramming to reverse disease, injury, and disabilities, a launch statement from the biotechnology company said.  Last year, we had reported that Bezos was funding a biotech startup that would have onboard Shinya Yamanaka,… Continue reading Jeff Bezos-Backed Lab Hired Nobel Laureate Top Scientists to Beat Death

Ultra-low-power switching circuits based on a binary pattern generator with spiking neurons

Due to the development of neuroscience and the success of machine learning technology, there has been increasing interest in neuro-inspired technologies that focus on the neural circuits from an engineering viewpoint. The interest is not limited to algorithmic research, but also extends to hardware research, which aims to implement neuro-inspired circuits and systems with lower… Continue reading Ultra-low-power switching circuits based on a binary pattern generator with spiking neurons

Rate-compatible multi-edge type low-density parity-check code ensembles for continuous-variable quantum key distribution systems

The t-value condition for MET-LDPC codes In this work, we consider a Tanner graph of MET-LDPC code ensemble with degree-one variable nodes shown in Fig. 1 where the entire set of variable node classes, denoted by ({{{mathcal{V}}}}), is partitioned into the subsets, ({{{{mathcal{V}}}}}_{1}), ({{{{mathcal{V}}}}}_{2}), and ({{{{mathcal{V}}}}}_{12}^{c}), and ({{{{mathcal{V}}}}}_{12}^{c}) is the complement of the set ({{{{mathcal{V}}}}}_{12}={{{{mathcal{V}}}}}_{1}cup… Continue reading Rate-compatible multi-edge type low-density parity-check code ensembles for continuous-variable quantum key distribution systems

Triboelectric charging of melt-blown nonwoven filters with high filtration efficiency

The influence of water conductivity on the filtration efficiency of MNF The electrical conductivity of water is used in many industries as an indication of the purity of water. The conductivity of tap water is in the range of 125 ~ 1250 μS/cm while the conductivity of distilled water used widely in the study of solid–liquid contact… Continue reading Triboelectric charging of melt-blown nonwoven filters with high filtration efficiency
