Purdue ranks 12th among worldwide universities granted U.S. utility patents for 2018

June 17, 2019

Purdue University ranked 12th in the world among universities granted U.S. utility patents in 2018, matching its best finish in the annual rankings put out by the National Academy of Inventors and the Intellectual Property Owners Association. Purdue also ranked 12th in the rankings in 2016. It ranked 17th in 2017, 15th in 2015 and 16th in 2014. Purdue is among only a dozen U.S. universities to be rated in the top 20 in each of the past five years and one of only a few in the top 20 without a medical school. The rankings are based on data obtained from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Protein shows promise in treating Parkinson's disease

June 13, 2019

The true cause of Parkinson’s disease is still a mystery to researchers, although they do know that in many patients, a protein called alpha-synuclein (aSyn) tends to aggregate in brain cells. But a different protein could help stop that aggregation, according to a new study in the Journal of Molecular Biology.

Intelligence Director Coats sees 'Great Leap' for AI and Warfare

June 10, 2019

Dan Coats is the U.S. Director of National Intelligence, so his primary concern is the world’s state of war and security as it exists today. Tomorrow’s military and security issues, however, were on his mind during a recent visit to Purdue University. Coats, a former U.S. senator and House of Representatives member from Indiana, appeared on campus May 14 as part of the University’s Dan CoatsSymposium on Ethics, Technology and the Future of War and Security. The day’s events, including Coats’ keynote, focused on the national security challenges posed by rapid advances in artificial intelligence, machine learning and other emerging technologies.

AI Technology Improves Critical Crack Detection in Nuclear Reactors, Bridges, Buildings

June 10, 2019

A tiny crack in a nuclear reactor, skyscraper, bridge or dam can cause catastrophic consequences. The Minneapolis bridge collapse, which killed 13 people in 2007, is just one example of what can happen when structural integrity is compromised. Unidentified or underidentified structural damage in nuclear reactors can be cataclysmic. Inspection of critical systems such as nuclear reactors is complicated and time-consuming.
