The use of plants by prehistoric men: help from sediment palaeogenetics

2023-06-16T11:17:18+02:0016 June 2023|Categories: Curiosity, Medicine and Research, Nature, Technology|Tags: , , |

Le nostre attuali conoscenze sull'utilizzo delle piante da parte della nostra specie durante il Paleolitico (2,5 mln - 12000 Years ago) are documented thanks to fragments of plants, phytoliths and microfossils, as well as biomarkers from food preparation tools and dental calculus, but are quite limited due to the poor preservation of identifiable plant remains and the lack of adequate methods for their detection and identification. However, uno studio internazionale abbastanza recente ci mostra come, grazie all'analisi del DNA conservato nei sedimenti delle grotte (ambienti unici in cui l'effetto completo degli elementi sui materiali [...]

Ex Machina: artificial intelligence, ego and paranoia

2023-06-15T16:49:43+02:0014 June 2023|Categories: Curiosity, Technology|Tags: , , |

“Erasing the boundary between man and machine means blurring the boundary between men and gods”. The tagline of Ex Machina is clear: what we are about to witness is not just any film about cyborgs or artificial intelligence, but a profound and disturbing reflection on the ethics of creation, on the meaning of conscience, and what the future development of these AIs could be, and what implications and consequences might arise from this. In the movie Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson), programmer, wins the opportunity to take on a secret project for a week with Nathan (Oscar Isaac), owner and creator of the software company for which Caleb [...]

The graphene revolution.

Chemistry is a subject that always amazes. In fact, today we will talk about a material with surprising properties: graphene. In the last decades, graphene has established itself as one of the most promising materials in materials science. In this article, we will explore the revolution of this compound and how it is changing the world. WHAT IS MEANT BY CARBON CHEMISTRY? In chemistry it is essential to know the spatial structure of a compound, because from it we can have important information regarding its function and macroscopic characteristics. Especially interesting from a structural point of view is the [...]

Recycling Paper

2022-06-10T11:40:23+02:009 June 2022|Categories: Technology|Tags: , , , , |

Did you know that, after Germany, we are the European champions of paper recycling? Paper recycling in Italy is an institution and an excellence of ecology and circular economy (that is, it reuses waste to generate new product). Let's see how to play our part in this virtuous cycle of environmental sustainability. As with all materials, those who use paper and cardboard can make ecologically sustainable choices in two moments: when they buy and when they discard them. Let's start from the former, in which the best choice is to favor paper obtained as much as possible through recycling e, in the portion in which [...]

The colors of hydrogen

2021-07-25T21:07:46+02:0015 July 2021|Categories: Technology|Tags: , , , , |

It is the lightest element in the periodic table and the most widespread in the universe, from the warm and beating heart of the stars to the cold ice crystals of these winter days. In the gaseous and molecular state it is odorless and colorless, when it is "burned" in the presence of oxygen it produces water. Hydrogen, its production and its possible uses enter every day more in the discussions of the media and public opinion for the fight against global warming and for the role that hydrogen can have as a clean energy vector since its combustion does not produce greenhouse gases. You may have noticed that hydrogen [...]

Rice production with CRISP-Cas9

2021-07-14T13:13:05+02:0021 March 2020|Categories: Medicine and Research, Technology|Tags: , |

CRISPR-Cas9 is a gene editing technique capable of modifying the genome or the complex of genes of a cell. It works like a molecular scissor that can cut and stitch DNA very precisely, eliminating harmful sequences or replacing them and correcting the mutations present. To date, this technique has been used in various fields ranging from biology to agriculture and indeed, a group of scientists used the CRISPR system to be able to increase rice production in some areas of Africa, subject to adverse weather conditions. The study carried out by some researchers of the University of Milan together with the University of [...]

With virtual reality in the heads of robots

2021-03-14T13:00:02+01:0024 October 2017|Categories: Technology|Tags: , , , , |

How close we are to the future represented in the film "The world of replicants" (in which humanity, comfortably sitting on the sofa at home, it lives, interacts and works by means of androids with completely human features)? The latest innovations in the field of robotics seem to show that it is very close. A research group from MIT recently published a work in which a new system for remote control of a robot is presented. The strength of the proposed approach lies in the use of low-cost technologies: a virtual reality viewer already on the market (l’Oculus Rift), motion sensors used for [...]
