After whittling down a number of applications, the finalists for the Researchfest 2019 sci-comm competition have been revealed.That’s the challenge now facing nine researchers who are set to take to the stage at Researchfest 2019.Speaking ahead of this year’s event, Inspirefest founder and Silicon Republic CEO Ann O’Dea described Researchfest as a “core part” of the overall event.Last year’s winner, NUI Galway’s Eoin Murphy, stole the show with his fantastic presentation on his work to use the gene-editing tool CRISPR for the treatment of Huntington’s disease.While a number of entries were received prior to the deadline, the judges had a difficult time choosing who would make the final cut, but eventually decided on eight outstanding finalists.A doctoral student at DCU, the focus of Paula Lehane’s studies is on digital interventions and methods to assess children’s learning and understanding.

Drawing upon his own experience as an autistic person, Adam Harris founded AsIAm, an organisation that is now the largest autism charity in Ireland.It’s difficult to forget the hours spent at the centre of a foxhole of your own making composed of books and past papers piled high, reading and re-reading the same information until your eyes felt stripped.It’s a lot to have on your plate but, evidently, wasn’t quite enough for AsIAm’s Adam Harris.It was while he was doing his Leaving Certificate exams years ago that he decided to found his autism advocacy organisation, which has now become one of the largest autism charities in the country.“Our vision, I suppose, is that every autistic person can be accepted as they are and can participate in every single aspect of Irish life.We have to move towards seeing it as another form of diversity and inclusion [D] … Companies have come a long way on the D agenda but often, disability and neurodivergence are left behind.”
AI is set to aid the development of nuclear fusion reactors in a big way by predicting when major disruptions could halt reactions and damage the reactor.While some claim that a stable nuclear fusion reactor capable of producing near-limitless, clean energy could be just over a decade away, researchers are still very much in the experimental stage of development.The biggest obstacle to achieving commercial energy production is controlling the intense, highly unstable plasma within the reactor with attempts so far only lasting a matter of minutes.However, a team at the US Department of Energy’s Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) has found a way to use the power of deep learning artificial intelligence (AI) to predict any disruptions that halt fusion reactions and damage doughnut-shaped tokamak reactors.“This research opens a promising new chapter in the effort to bring unlimited energy to Earth,” said Steve Cowley, director of PPPL, about the study published to Nature.“AI is exploding across the sciences and now it’s beginning to contribute to the worldwide quest for fusion power.”

Astronomers only discovered a star after it erupted with a ‘superflare’ 160m times more powerful than the largest hydrogen bomb ever detonated.The universe’s ability to shock you with size continues following the discovery of an ultracool L dwarf star located 250 light years away named ULAS J224940.13-011236.9.Equivalent in size to Jupiter – or just one-tenth that of our sun – it should have been too faint for astronomers to see, but then something extraordinary happened.In a paper published to the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society: Letters, researchers from the University of Warwick revealed that the tiny star emitted a ‘superflare’ of incredible magnitude.The superflare occurred on the night of 13 August 2017 and was spotted over the course of a survey lasting 146 days.When it was flaring, it shone like a lighthouse to the astronomers as it was 10,000 times brighter than normal.

TAGs: gambling sites, New Zealand, offshoreNew Zealand has been battling an issue with offshore gambling sites attracting Kiwis, but the operators are now taking a different approach in order to attract bettors.There are now at least 13 offshore gambling sites that use New Zealand website addresses and at least one is using the official coat of arms of the country, making it appear to be more legitimate to unwitting gamblers.The sites are all registered as “nz” domains; however, none is run from with the country.Neither are they subject to the strict gambling regulations in New Zealand, leaving gamblers unprotected and without any way to claim damages if something goes wrong.Given that the sites are purportedly run by criminal organizations, the chances of something going wrong are very high.

Social network seems to be stumbling from one security nightmare to another.If there is at least one good thing that Facebook has achieved in the past year or more it has to be the mass education of people all over the world about cybersecurity, privacy and the value of their data.In the latest sorry debacle, Facebook has admitted that it harvested the email contact lists of some 1.5m users without their knowledge or consent when they set up their accounts.‘These contacts were not shared with anyone and we’re deleting them’Since May 2016, the social media juggernaut collected the contact lists of 1.5m users that were new to the social network.According to Business Insider, which broke the story, the company said that the contacts were “unintentionally uploaded to Facebook” and that it is now deleting them.
