Scientists develop a temperature sensor on a paper substrate

A CSIC team has developed a temperature sensor that consists of a semiconductor material on a paper substrate. The use of paper as a substrate makes this sensor cheap, easy to produce and biodegradable. It can be applied to monitor body temperature by attaching the sensor in clothes. Also in packaging of goods sensitive to temperature changes.

Six CSIC groups renew the TECNIO accreditation

TECNIO is an accreditation awarded through the local government’s ACCION program. It has as a goal to identify and give visibility to technology developers of the R & D & I system, groups that have differential technological capabilities and thus the capacity to transfer them to the industrial sector.

Innovative techniques for subsurface and renewable resources exploration, such as geothermal energy

The INNOLOG project led by CSIC has developed two probes (borehole logging tools) and a mineral-identification software based on machine leaning/deep learning methods to improve the time and cost efficiency in the search of subsoil/subsurface resources. Innolog results and products apply new sensors and technologies (hyperspectral and laser based) that enable a more efficient subsoil exploration for resources, such as geothermal ones, in accordance with the goals of the European Green Deal.

Pharaon ants inspire an Artificial Intelligence algorithm with applications such as drug search or logistic optimization

CSIC scientists improve an algorithm inspired by the behaviour of these ants. Pharaon ants use pheromones for setting ‘no-entry’ signals, which is an example of learning based on negative feedback. It enables to improve optimization techniques for many sectors, both in industry and in scientific research.

Artificial Intelligence technology for sustainable ridesharing in the city

Scientists at the Institute for the Investigation in Artificial Intelligence of the CSIC (IIIA-CSIC) have developed a technology for ride-sharing. The goal is allowing people to share their cars with the users who have to do the same trip, hence doing a more sustainable use of the vehicle and reducing the traffic in the cities.
