  • Natural language processing (NLP) brings together two disciplines as apparently distant as linguistics and artificial intelligence. Today, this field of computer science, which consists of transforming natural language into a formal language — such as programming — that computers can process, is constantly evolving and its applications are growing.

    R&D

    Self-driving cars, assistants that translate instantly from one language to another or personalized purchase suggestions. Complex tasks that used to be a fantasy are now possible thanks to Machine Learning, a discipline that allows computers to learn by themselves and perform tasks autonomously without the need to be programmed.

  • NASA's Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) recently confirmed the presence of water on the lunar surface, specifically in the sunlit area. In the following lines, we will discuss the many implications of this finding, both for future space missions and for a future colonisation of Earth's natural satellite.

    Hydroponic crops are based on a practice that does away with soil and in its place uses a solution of water enriched with nutrients, among other alternatives. By using few resources, are seen as a option more sustainable solution than traditional agriculture. What's more, hydroponic crops can be grown at home!

  • Biotechnology is not a new discipline, but it is advancing by leaps and bounds and it has more and more applications in our day-to-day lives: from pharmaceutical development to food production and the treatment of polluting waste. We explore this exciting field below and try to determine how far it might go in the future.

    New technologies have changed the world and the rules of the game in many industries. The food industry, on the other hand, is still wondering how to apply innovations such as big data or the Internet of Things (IoT) to its business. The challenges for the sector are numerous, including food sustainability, and the foodtech industry is leading the way.
