Researchers from the Penn State College of Information Sciences and Technology created a new method to streamline medical summarization, a process that uses artificial intelligence to condense complex patient information.
A new class of metallic materials with potential applications in airplane turbines, nuclear reactors and equipment for space exploration can withstand extreme temperatures and resist fractures, but scientists haven’t understood why until now. According to a new study co-led by Penn State researchers, the answer could relate to the material’s short-range order, or the local arrangement of atoms within a material.

Addressing the incontrovertible risks of climate change requires deep decarbonization. In addition to green measures like upscaling renewables and improving energy efficiency, there is broad scientific consensus that large-scale carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) remains critical to limiting global temperature rise below 2°C.
Researchers from Penn State have shed light on a remarkable yet underappreciated plant to fight food insecurity: Carolina azolla.
