Making the invisible visible
7/22/2019 Berkeley Lab - Berkeley researchers have developed a new type of sensor network that is affordable and capable of tracking soot (a.k.a black carbon). With more than 100 custom-built sensors installed across West Oakland for 100 days, the team created the largest black carbon monitoring network deployed in a single city.
Drones will fly for days with new photovoltaic engine
7/17/2019 - UC Berkeley researchers just broke another record in photovoltaic efficiency, an achievement that could lead to an ultralight engine that can power drones for days and deep space probes for centuries.
Adding touch to virtual and augmented reality
7/15/2019 - Today’s augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) technologies simulate a vivid interactive experience by altering the scene users see and the sounds they hear. But what if users could also feel their way through an experience? A new flexible, wearable device developed by Berkeley Engineering researchers could someday make this a reality.
Berkeley students get a global perspective of technology innovation
7/9/2019 - Twenty UC Berkeley students — most with limited travel experience, including some that have never left the United States — went on a whirlwind educational tour of Singapore and the Philippines earlier this summer to learn firsthand how technology innovation and application is approached in countries outside of the United States.
Algorithms uncover hidden scientific knowledge
7/5/2019 Berkeley Lab - A team of materials science researchers from Berkeley Lab and Berkeley Engineering has found that with minimal training, machine-learning text mining of the existing scientific literature can lead to new discoveries.
White House honors engineering faculty with early career awards
7/3/2019 - Anca Dragan and Javad Lavaei have been awarded the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE), the White House announced this week.
New RIOS Lab to expand open-source ecosystem for dominant computer processor instruction set
7/1/2019 - The Tsinghua-UC Berkeley Shenzhen Institute (TBSI) has launched a non-profit research lab to expand and elevate the capabilities of reduced instruction set computer (RISC) microprocessors. The RISC-V International Open Source Laboratory, or RIOS, will involve the development of open-source hardware and software designs.
Berkeley professors named innovators under 35
6/25/2019 - Two Berkeley Engineering professors — mechanical engineering’s Grace Gu and EECS’ Raluca Ada Popa — were included in MIT Technology Review’s list of “innovators under 35” today. This honor is given annually to technologists whose work has great potential to change the world
College of Engineering and College of Environmental Design launch new Master of Design program
6/25/2019 - UC Berkeley is launching an innovative advanced degree in design for emerging technologies. The new Master of Design (MDes) program is a three-semester degree offered jointly by the College of Engineering and the College of Environmental Design.
Government-funded research increasingly fuels innovation
6/20/2019 - New research shows that cuts in federal funding for science might endanger the innovation that increasingly fuels the modern economy.
