A new wastewater treatment that concentrates nitrogen for fertilizer

Two EPFL Master’s in Environmental Engineering students adapted a system typically used to concentrate fruit juice and tested it out at the Yverdon-les-Bains wastewater treatment plant in Vaud.
The way a single neuron processes information is never the same

The way a single neuron processes information is never the same

Researchers at Blue Brain have discovered that dendrites, the neuron’s tree-like receptors, work together – dynamically and depending on the workload – for learning. The findings further our understanding of how we think and may inspire new algorithms for artificial intelligence.
