A revolutionary information chip has been created, by the researchers from Zhejiang University and Hangzhou Dianzi University in China, which will enable the operation of complex intelligent algorithms on small devices. The Darwin Neural Processing Unit (NPU) is a neuromorphic hardware co-processor derived from Spiking Neural Networks (SNN), fabricated by standard CMOS technology.
Bayer and CRISPR Therapeutics will join hands to form a joint venture that will carry out research on a new potential gene editing technology. The joint venture will be owned 50% each by both the companies. The German pharmaceutical company will spend 300 million euros during the coming five years on the joint venture. It will also buy the Swiss biotech firm’s shares worth 35 million euros.
Some portions of Enceladus' surface are much younger than others, a new photo captured for the first time by NASA's Saturn-orbiting Cassini spacecraft in 2005 has shown. The picture, captured from a distance of 85,000 miles (137,000 kilometers), highlights the varied terrain of Saturn's icy, ocean-harboring moon Enceladus.
