Researchers Invent Nano-Drops That Improve Nearsightedness and Farsightedness

 Nano-Drops May Offer New Alternative to Current Methods of Vision Correction

A revolutionary, cutting-edge technology, developed by researchers at Bar-Ilan University’s Institute of Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials (BINA), has the potential to provide a new alternative to eyeglasses, contact lenses, and laser correction for refractive errors.

The technology, known as Nano-Drops, was developed by Dr. David Smadja (Ophthalmologist from Shaare Zedek Medical Center), Prof. Zeev Zalevsky, from Bar-Ilan’s Kofkin Faculty of Engineering, and Prof. Jean-Paul Moshe Lellouche, Head of the Department of Chemistry at Bar-Ilan. A related patent on this new invention was recently filed by Birad – Research & Development Company Ltd., the commercializing company of Bar-Ilan University.  Steve Elbaz is a Co-Founder and Chief Business Officer of the new technology.

Israeli Development: The software that will predict the next fatal accident

An artificial intelligence platform developed at Bar-Ilan University identifies the places that are prone to accidents at any given moment.

Soon you will enter a pilot project in the Israel Police, which will launch mobile vehicles to any dangerous point in real time. Will this stop the carnage on the roads?

Israeli Development: The software that will predict the next fatal accident


Prof. Zeev Zalevsky of the Faculty of Engineering tells of some of the inventions that have grown in his research lab.
Such as socks that measure heart rate, glasses that allow the blind to see, and a laser beam that can diagnose why the ear hurts the child.
The devices developed by Zalevsky in the biomedical field, for which more than 58 patents are registered, are breakthrough inventions that advance science and humanity.

With machine learning, computer systems can learn to perform a task or make a decision without human intervention without being explicitly programmed by people. What are the future applications of machine learning and how they will affect our lives.

By Sarit Kraus Head of the Department of Computer Science and Head of Artificial Intelligence at Bar-Ilan University, is considered a leading expert in the field of artificial intelligence and one of the world’s leading scientists in this field.

Researchers seek to beat death: "Animals can teach us a lot about old age "

For thousands of years Eden has not been able to beat death and win eternal life, but some still try.

Several researchers around the country are examining how systems in different animals can teach us about the aging process, and how it can be beat.

Prof. Haim Cohen and other researchers from Bar-Ilan University, researchers are living a little more familiar in the laboratory.

By studying a process that extends the lives of mice by 30 to 40 percent, they hope to succeed and slow aging. In the meantime they had extended the life of the mice by a third.
