Global Technology – June 2012
Now let’s focus on this month’s most important advances in technology. We’ll begin with a breakthrough in sensing technology.
Chemical sensors are exceedingly good at detecting a single substance or a class of chemicals, even at highly rarified concentrations. Biological noses are vastly more versatile and capable of discriminating subtle cues that would confound their man-made counterparts.
However, even the most highly trained biological noses are limited by ambiguity when it comes to relaying a signal, and they are not part.....
