Imaging through random diffusers instantly without a computer

Imaging through scattering and diffusive media has been a challenge for many decades, with numerous solutions reported so far. In principle, images distorted by random diffusers (such as frosted glass) can be recovered using ...

Demystifying machine-learning systems using natural language

Neural networks are sometimes called black boxes because, despite the fact that they can outperform humans on certain tasks, even the researchers who design them often don't understand how or why they work so well. But if ...

Engineers propose greener recycling for medical PPE waste

Under the intensity of a prolonged pandemic, the world finds an ever-growing and seemingly never-ending waste stream of used surgical masks, plastic face shields, and medical gloves and gowns. Cornell engineers now offer ...
