Will Customers Redefine Design And The Science Of

It is “pre-COVID ” April of 2018, and 174 member states of IMO adopt a new strategy to reduce greenhouse gases from shipping. The meetings are considered “urgent” and the target is to reduce carbon emissions in half by 2050. Prior to those “targets” shipping dealt with regulations to address SOx and NOx reductions. Most of which have resulted in limited success due to infrastructure problems and a consideration as a temporary fix.

The technical world has responded with low sulfur fuels, LNG, and methanol to work towards the target. Not a surprise as shipping has been addicted to fossil fuels and large combustion engines for over 100 years. Many of the new fuel changes have affected maintenance and new building costs, the Owners bottom line and in turn global commerce. Beyond those issues many owners will find that their new construction EEDI calculation have been compromised by new regulations

Tesla unveils battery puzzle pieces of smart material science, design, and manufacturing innovation

At its Battery Day event, Tesla unveiled its new 4680 battery cell developed in-house and the manufacturing process behind it.

The highly anticipated presentation went deep into details about all the different pieces of material science, design, and manufacturing innovations that it took to deliver the masterpiece of a puzzle that the automaker needed to put together to reduce battery costs by more than 50% in just 3 years…

Over the last few years, Tesla has been making a lot of moves related to batteries.

We are talking about buying companies like Maxwell and Hibar, and applying for patents on new technology, like a tabless battery cell and a cell to pack design.

While all these moves were mostly evaluated on their own merits, it wasn’t clear how all those things would fit together.

That’s exactly what Tesla demonstrated at its Battery Day.

Tesla explained how they have made major

Virtual reality startup and Fujitsu bring immersive drug design software to Japanese market

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — San Diego–based virtual reality (VR) startup Nanome, Inc. has entered into an agreement with Fujitsu to bring their signature product—an immersive scientific design and collaboration platform—to the Japanese market. The software is already used by more than 15 of the top US-based biopharmaceutical companies.

Nanome became the first VR software company to launch an immersive real-time collaboration platform for scientific discovery in 2015. The software environment accelerates scientific decision making by allowing users to visualize, modify, and simulate biological and chemical compounds, facilitating effective communication of data and integrating with existing computational chemistry workflows.

“Our software enables the analysis of complicated structures in 3D space,” said Nanome COO Keita Funakawa. “It can help gain insights into data that were not accessible using 2D tools.”

Beginning this month, Fujitsu, a multinational information technology equipment and services company headquartered in Tokyo, Japan,

Anti-racism in technology and policy design

When Kate Turner was an undergraduate at the University of Notre Dame, she kept hearing the same message.


“As a Black woman, people kept telling me, ‘we need more Black women in STEM!'” recalls Turner.

The message had some influence on her choice of major—but then, so did a global recession. And while STEM fields might have seemed to offer more stable career prospects, Turner’s chemical engineering path did not at first inspire.

It took seeing the science through the lens of societal challenges and policy to really spark a passion.

“I very serendipitously met a professor who offered me a position working in his lab,” Turner recounts. “He was an Earth scientist who worked on nuclear issues, specifically nuclear waste management.” The issue interested Turner because, as she puts it, “you cannot divorce the policy and the social science from the STEM work.”

“The questions
