Remarkably Human-Like: Next-Gen Robots Since the beginning of the industrial revolution in the late 18th century, machines and humans have worked together to transform human societies in many ways; machines have helped us unlock mass production, transform information sharing, and explore new planets. As we gear up to enter 2022, it appears the boundary between […]

The Effects Of Corona Virus Lockdowns On Atmospheric Pollutants

The Effects of Corona Virus Lockdowns on Atmospheric Pollutants Environmental pollution which is a growing concern globally is posing challenges to both developed and developing nations. However, global lockdowns due to the corona virus (COVID-19) spread that were aimed to reduce the infection rate, inadvertently, also lead to the reduction in environmental pollution specifically due […]
