Deep Sea Oil Trap: An Underwater Cleanup System for Platforms and Ships to Contain and Recapture Oil Plumes

  By: Sachin Narayan Abstract: Underwater oil plumes are an accumulation of oil microdroplets that, due to a number of factors (namely size, temperature, pressure, and currents), do not rise to the surface (Zhao, 2016). This research aims to better understand underwater oil plume dynamics and forces and test reusable materials and processes that effectively recapture the oil without causing further environmental damage. The work concluded that a two-part system involving containment and recapture provides […]

Assessing the Development of Artificial Intelligence Technologies In Radiation Therapy and Targeting Irregular Masses

Eric Bear, Jessica Singh, and Michael Wahrman   ABSTRACT The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the use of artificial intelligence in the medical use of particle accelerators for both treatment (radiation therapy) and imaging. We will first discuss the implications of artificial intelligence (AI) on particle accelerators, starting with basic control mechanisms and then moving to complex systems such as neural networking. AI has the potential to increase efficiency and precision in all […]
