Data-Driven Investigations in Nanotechnology


Nanotechnology is necessary for computers to help us parse data (not to mention the sensors, cables, networks, and displays that connect computers to the rest of the world,) and data-driven investigation will be a mainstay of nanotechnology. Naturally, nanotechnology – the creation, manipulation, and application of parts and particles measured on a nanoscale – has developed alongside computer-driven data science. Advances in either field are soon met with applications in the other, and the progress of each has benefited as a result. Recently, scientists have noted how varying fields of endeavor, including nanotechnology and data-based sciences, appear to be converging. That is, advances in discrete fields are informed by – and are applicable – to cutting-edge research in separate fields.

What Are Nanobots? Understanding Nanobot Structure, Operation, and Uses


As technology advances, things don't always become bigger and better, objects also become smaller. In fact, nanotechnology is one of the fastest-growing technological fields, worth over 1 trillion USD, and it's forecast to grow by approximately 17% over the next half-decade. Nanobots are a major part of the nanotechnology field, but what are they exactly and how do they operate? Let's take a closer look at nanobots to understand how this transformative technology works and what it's used for. The field of nanotechnology is concerned with the research and development of technology approximately one to 100 nanometres in scale.

New machine learning technique rapidly analyzes nanomedicines for cancer immunotherapy


"Spherical nucleic acids represent an exciting new class of medicines that are already in five human clinical trials for treating diseases, including glioblastoma (the most common and deadly form of brain cancer) and psoriasis," said Mirkin, the inventor of SNAs and the George B. Rathmann Professor of Chemistry in Northwestern's Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences. A new study published this week in Nature Biomedical Engineering details the optimization method, which uses a library approach and machine learning to rapidly synthesize, measure and analyze the activities and properties of SNA structures. The process, which screened more than 1,000 structures at a time, was aided by SAMDI-MS technology, developed by study co-author Milan Mrksich, Henry Wade Rogers Professor of Biomedical Engineering in Northwestern's McCormick School of Engineering and director of the Center for Synthetic Biology. Invented and developed at Northwestern, SNAs are nanostructures consisting of ball-like forms of DNA and RNA arranged on the surface of a nanoparticle. Researchers can digitally design SNAs to be precise, personalized treatments that shut off genes and cellular activity, and more recently, as vaccines that stimulate the body's own immune system to treat diseases, including certain forms of cancer.

DNA patterns DNA is a versatile molecule with many potential technological applications because it can organize itself into all manner of useful patterns. Researchers from Duke University and the Korea Research Institute of Standards and Science have expanded on their DNA grids by giving them the ability to organize other molecules. The DNA grids are made from DNA tiles, or combinations of DNA strands that form rigid structures. The grids can incorporate different types of molecules at specific points, including molecules that could be used to make electronic and optical components. The grids are more than 60 times smaller than a red blood cell and are part of an ongoing project to build computer chips using DNA to assemble components such as carbon nanotubes into logic circuits.

Nanotechnology Conferences


Global Conference on Advanced Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials, "the 2nd year of the international conference" held during June 22-23, 2022 at Berlin, brings together the leading academic and industry scientists, engineers, clinicians, entrepreneurs, visitors, researchers and exhibitions. This NANO Intellects 2022 is the international platform unite the collection of investigators in the field of nanotechnology and nano-science at the forefront. The conference aims to exchange researchers with their latest developments and results, share their perspectives, create friendships and develop strong ties for future research and get useful feedback about their work. No doubt that this event has a wide-range of topics and continues in parallel sessions, workshops, plenary sessions and panel discussions relative to the specific area of research. In this sense, the theme "Harnessing Light on Nanotechnology Breakthroughs" reflects our commitment and excitement to deliver an innovative and inventive program, while providing attractive lectures and sessions on applications and technologies of nano-scale materials, modern electronic devices, renewable energy devices, new materials, new medical applications, anti-terror uses of nano-sensors, nano-biosensors for disease detection, nano-materials use in high-capacity batteries, nano-scale materials in drug delivery devices, nano-films, nano-materials and many more.
