Firing Up Fire Detection Efforts with Deep Learning Models

August 22, 2023

Researchers at the San Diego Supercomputer Center have developed new deep learning models to continue improving efforts for early wildfire detection. These efforts at SDSC are led by the WIFIRE Lab, which is an all-hazards knowledge cyberinfrastructure developed as a management layer for data…

Ultra-sensitive Lead Detector Could Significantly Improve Water Quality Monitoring

February 5, 2024

Engineers have developed an ultra-sensitive sensor made with graphene that can detect extraordinarily low concentrations of lead ions in water. The device achieves a record limit of detection of lead down to the femtomolar range, which is one million times more sensitive than previous technologies.
