Researchers from the University establish a new methodology to improve, from space and through machine learning, the observation and analysis of the terrestrial biosphere. This statistical approach will represent a significant advance in monitoring crops and carbon sinks, as well as in predicting floods and droughts. The work has been published in the journal Science Advances. Read More
“Green” hydrogen is generated from water using an electrolyser and photovoltaic solar power, allowing it to supply the power and heat cogeneration system required in a conventional household. Read More
Researchers from the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV), in collaboration with specialists from the University of Valencia (UV), have come up with a new system based on a high-sensitivity mass biosensor that continuously monitors signals for the direct detection of SARS-CoV-2 in environmental aerosols. The device, in prototype phase, makes it possible to assess the quality of the air and allows an early detection of the virus in inside spaces such as homes, classrooms, restaurants, cinemas or means of transportation.

Two new technologies developed by the University of Alicante streamline processes that to date were slower to perform, and without even requiring human intervention: the Automated worker presence system and Electronic payment by presence system. Read More
Researchers of the University of Alicante Language Processing and Information Systems Group (GPLSI) have developed a ‘bot’, called Fiero, which collects swear words and stores them with the aim of generating one of the most widely used linguistic resources in Human Language Technologies (HLT) and lexicons (word lists).

A study on visual illusions in artificial neural networks, in which the University of Valencia participated, reveals that artificial perception does not eliminate the subjectivities and biases of the human brain. That machines can be wrong in their perception of reality, as people are, is one of the main conclusions of a study recently published in the Vision Research journal.
Journal Nature has published an analysis on the most significant landmarks in the field of programmable photonics, a technology that will revolutionise the design and performance of chips. Two of the authors are researchers from the UPV, Daniel Pérez and José Capmany. Read More
The Engineering Design and Technological Development Group (DIDET), from the University of Alicante ArtefactosLAB, has once again taken a step forward in terms of social innovation with the design of a new handheld robotic exoskeleton. Named [flick], this robotic exoskeleton improves the lives of people with limited or no ability to move due to neurological and/or physiological disorders. Read More
