The IISC team devised an algorithm to explicitly count the number of computing resources necessary, and optimized it to obtain maximum efficiency.
Humanoids or robots are in news for taking up certain chores like in restaurants or as cleaners but researchers led by an Indian-origin scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) are now working on robots that can learn new tasks solely by observing humans.
Whole Genome Sequencing (WSG) under the 'GenomeIndia: Cataloguing the Genetic Variation in Indians' project has started. The proposed target of WSG is to do it for 10,000 individuals representing the country's diverse population.
New research from Singapore published Wednesday showed that patients with the novel coronavirus extensively contaminate their bedrooms and bathrooms, underscoring the need to routinely clean high-touch surfaces, basins and toilet bowls.
University of British Columbia (UBC) Astronomy Student Michelle Kunimoto has discovered 17 new planets, including a potentially habitable, Earth-sized world, by combing through data gathered by NASA's Kepler mission.
Research led by an Indian-origin astronomer has found an exoplanet more than twice the size of Earth that could have the right conditions to sustain alien life.
The biggest explosion in the universe after the Big Bang has been discovered by scientists studying a distant galaxy cluster.
The Habitable-zone Planet Finder (HPF), an astronomical instrument has confirmed an object initially observed by the Kepler spacecraft is an exoplanet.
NASA's Juno mission has provided its first science results on the amount of water in Jupiter's atmosphere. Published recently in the journal Nature Astronomy, the Juno results estimate that at the equator, water makes up about 0.25 per cent of the molecules in Jupiter's atmosphere - almost three times that of the Sun.
There has been a decline in population of 79 per cent of Indian species of birds as per the assessment of current trends, but there is also some good news as the number of Indian peafowls (national bird peacock) has shown a dramatic rise, says a report.
Researchers have said that one in three plant and animal species could face extinction by 2070 because of climate change. The study, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, estimated broad-scale extinction patterns from climate change by incorporating data from recent climate-related extinctions and from rates of species movements.
Betelgeuse, a reddish star that is part of the Orion constellation, may be entering a pre-supernova phase - where it gets fainter before collapsing in a fiery explosion.
One of the largest turtles that ever lived prowled the lakes and rivers of northern South America from about 13 million years ago to 7 million years ago - and this car-sized freshwater beast was built for battle.
Half of the one million animal and plant species on Earth facing extinction are insects, and their disappearance could be catastrophic for humankind, scientists have said in a "warning to humanity".
The US-European Solar Orbiter probe launches Sunday night from Florida on a voyage to deepen our understanding of the Sun and how it shapes the space weather that impacts technology back on Earth.
