Almost everyone uses nanometer-sized alumina these days – this mineral, among others, constitutes the skeleton of modern catalytic converters in cars. Until now, the practical production of nanocorundum with a sufficiently high porosity has not been possible. The situation has changed radically with the presentation of a new method of nanocorundum production, developed as part of a German- Polish cooperation of scientists from Mülheim an der Ruhr and Cracow.
People`s effectiveness in detecting whether someone is lying or telling the truth is low (53-54%). A psychologist from Warsaw is working on a free program expected to be more effective than people in detecting lies - thanks to the use of artificial intelligence algorithms.
Scientists from the Silesian University of Technology together with physiotherapists are working on a VR-based method of quick detection of balance problems. In the future, the results of their work will help to accelerate detection of ENT diseases and nervous system disorders.
