The Beauty of OpenRooms

September 9, 2021

Computer scientists at the University of California San Diego have released a new framework called OpenRooms. Available to the public, this dataset and tools will help users manipulate objects, materials, lighting and other properties in indoor 3D scenes to advance augmented reality and robotics.

Decoding Birds’ Brain Signals Into Syllables of Song

September 23, 2021

Researchers can predict what syllables a bird will sing—and when it will sing them—by reading electrical signals in its brain, reports a new study from the University of California San Diego. The work is an early step toward building vocal prostheses for humans who have lost the ability to speak.

New Research Helps Explain the Genetic Basis of Why We Look the Way We Do

November 10, 2021

Comparing features of a common laboratory fruit fly with its rarer cousin collected from Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, UC San Diego researchers used CRISPR technology to uncover clues about how high-level control genes called Hox genes shape our appearance.

How Well Do Wet Masks Contain Droplets?

November 22, 2021

A team of international researchers modeled what happens to respiratory droplets when they come in contact with wet masks; their results show that damp masks are still effective at stopping these droplets from escaping the mask and being atomized into smaller, easier-to-spread aerosolized particles.
