9/28/2018 Gladstone Institutes - Kevin Healy's bioengineering lab combined their tissue engineering with the Gladstone Institute's genome editing techniques to create a “diseased heart micro-tissue” model. The new tool will help explore how common environmental stress affects normal and abnormal heart tissue.
9/10/2018 - Berkeley engineers have created a device that dramatically reduces the energy needed to power magnetic field detectors, which could revolutionize how we measure the magnetic fields that flow through our electronics, our planet and even our bodies.
8/30/2018 Berkeley Lab - National laboratory researchers led by Berkeley Lab's Haruko Wainwright, a new associate adjunct professor of nuclear engineering at UC Berkeley, have developed a low-cost method for real-time monitoring of groundwater pollutants using commonly available sensors.
8/27/2018 Engadget - Experimenting with deep learning systems, a team of Berkeley computer science researchers is using artificial intelligence to make dancers look more skillful. The project uses algorithms to pass dance moves via video from a skilled dancer to a virtual skeleton to an amateur subject.
8/6/2018 - Berkeley engineers are co-leading a new DOE-funded Energy Frontier Research Center to study how extreme conditions such as radiation exposure and corrosion affect nuclear reactor materials. The new center, led by the Los Alamos National Laboratory, is called the Fundamental Understanding of Transport Under Reactor Extremes, or FUTURE.
7/30/2018 New York Times - Drawing on the latest in machine learning, Autolab and BAIR Lab researchers are developing robots that can pick up or move all manner of objects, and even learn to make a bed.
7/27/2018 - Berkeley Engineering faculty members Steven Conolly, Ming Wu, Ting Xu and David Schaffer are among the new members of the Bakar Fellows Program.
6/18/2018 - Berkeley engineers have developed a new way to fabricate working electronics onto plain paper, opening the doors to new sensors, supercapacitors and other electronic devices that are cheap and foldable.
6/18/2018 - A team of scientists in chemical and biomolecular engineering professor Jay Keasling's lab has made a breakthrough in the synthesis of new genes, offering promise for cheaper, faster and safer development of medicines.
6/7/2018 Interesting Engineering - The Berkeley DeepDrive Industry Consortium has released an open-source dataset of 100,000 self-driving video sequences — largest of its kind — to the public in hopes of helping engineers develop autonomous vehicles.
