10/15/2019 San Francisco Chronicle - Jack Moehle, professor of structural engineering, comments on the safety of towers that have transformed San Francisco’s skyline over the past decade.
9/13/2019 Berkeley Lab - Nuclear engineering professor Rebecca Abergel and her colleagues at Berkeley Lab have developed a new pill to treat radiation poisoning. The pill could also double as an anti-gadolinium-toxicity pill for MRI patients injected with a commonly-used contrast dye.
8/16/2019 - A team of Berkeley engineers is developing wearable skin sensors that can detect what's in sweat, potentially supplanting invasive procedures like blood draws and providing real-time updates on health conditions.
8/6/2019 - Berkeley engineers have created the fastest silicon-based, programmable two-dimensional optical phased array, which could improve medical imaging, optical communications and LiDAR sensors.
8/1/2019 - Berkeley Engineering's contributions to the rise of the semiconductor industry were featured in a recent library podcast, while mechanical engineering professor emeritus George Leitmann was interviewed for an oral history project.
6/25/2019 - The Jacobs Institute for Design Innovation will play a key role in the new Master of Design (MDes) program, an innovative advanced degree in design for emerging technologies.
6/19/2019 Adobe - UC Berkeley and Adobe researchers have developed a method for detecting edits to images that were made using Photoshop’s Face Aware Liquify feature. While still in its early stages, this collaboration between Adobe Research and UC Berkeley, is a step towards democratizing image forensics, the science of uncovering and analyzing changes to digital images.
6/12/2019 TechXplore - A new video by the Hybrid Robotics Group shows bipedal robot Cassie Cal riding in hovershoes down a few stairs, on uneven outdoor terrain, up and down steep inclines and leaning into a turn to navigate corners.
5/22/2019 - Topping out at less than a foot, Salto the robot looks like a "Star Wars" imperial walker in miniature. But don’t be fooled by its size — this little robot has a mighty spring in its step.
4/9/2019 - Blue uses advances in artificial intelligence and deep reinforcement learning to master intricate human tasks, while remaining affordable and safe enough that every AI researcher — and eventually every home — could have one.
