Innovation at Purdue news
Purdue University’s Steven Collicott was 8 years old when he saw Neil Armstrong step onto the moon and dreamed of reaching the stars. Now, both he and his research are going to make a giant leap into space aboard a Virgin Galactic craft.
It can take decades for scientists to identify physical laws, statements that explain anything from how gravity affects objects to why energy can’t be created or destroyed. Purdue University researchers have found a way to use machine learning for reducing that time to just a few days. Their study is one of the first demonstrations of using machine learning to discover physical laws from data.
Solar-powered solutions on the farm: Purdue-affiliated company completes microgrid for crop production facility
A newly completed solar microgrid system near Greensburg, Indiana, in Decatur County, is expected to generate enough emissions-free clean energy to offset nearly 4,000 tons of carbon dioxide over its lifetime, the same amount produced from driving 5 million miles.
O.Y.E. Therapeutics, a clinical-stage pharmaceutical development company with a drug targeted at expediting emergence from anesthesia, has announced a successful pre-IND (Investigational New Drug) meeting with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
It is hard enough for humans to interpret the deeper meaning and context of social media and news articles. Asking computers to do it is a nearly impossible task. Even C-3PO, fluent in over 6 million forms of communication, misses the subtext much of the time.
Evaluating concussion patients for recovery and measuring compounding injuries can be done as simply as recording a video with a smartphone.
Purdue University engineers have invented a new, patent-pending charging station cable that would fully recharge certain electric vehicles in under five minutes – about the same amount of time it takes to fill up a gas tank.
