Berkeley Engineering in the News
12/11/2019 - In a surprising new study, Berkeley researchers led by Xiang Zhang, professor of mechanical engineering, showed that heat energy can travel through a complete vacuum due to invisible quantum fluctuations, a discovery that could have profound implications for the design of computer chips.
12/6/2019 IEEE - The electrical engineering and computer sciences professor emeritus was recognized for his distinguished work with semiconductor models, particularly 3D device structures.
12/3/2019 NBC News - After studying the behavior of Jupiter's famous Great Red Spot with computer simulations, Berkeley researchers, led by mechanical engineering professor Philip Marcus, say there is no evidence that the giant storm is dying, despite observations over the past decade suggesting it is shrinking.
12/3/2019 - Pieter Abbeel, professor of electrical engineering and computer sciences, led a team of researchers to develop Blue, the Berkeley robot for Learning in Unstructured Environments.
11/26/2019 - Rebecca Abergel, assistant professor of nuclear engineering, and David Schaffer, professor of bioengineering and of chemical and biomolecular engineering, are among five Berkeley faculty members named new fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
11/18/2019 New York Times - Electrical engineering and computer sciences professor Dawn Song, a leading expert in computer security and trustworthy artificial intelligence, is building a platform in which people control their own data online and are compensated for its use by corporations.
11/5/2019 Los Angeles Times - Leaders in artificial intelligence are unveiling a tool to push back against deepfake videos, built in part on scanning software that UC Berkeley has been developing in partnership with the U.S. military.
10/22/2019 - A computer algorithm developed by scientists at UCSF and UC Berkeley bested two out of four expert radiologists at finding tiny brain hemorrhages in head scans — an advance that one day may help doctors treat patients with traumatic brain injuries, strokes and aneurysms.
10/17/2019 UCSD - UC Berkeley and UC San Diego material scientists have discovered the secret to Arapaima gigas's impermeable armor. The scales on this Amazonian freshwater fish could serve as inspiration for stronger, lightweight and flexible synthetic armors.
