A World of Ideas Working Together to Help the Planet
Every day, the world’s most brilliant minds are coming up with the most amazing ideas. Problem is, how do we bring these ideas together so that the world can benefit from them?
With Web of Science®, from Thomson Reuters.
More than a think tank, Web of Science is a living, breathing, growing hive of discovery, one where the science professionals we partner with can discover new findings to create tomorrow’s breakthroughs.
With unparalleled access to journals, studies and each other’s work, over 20 million professionals use it to find hidden patterns, gain insights faster and connect with each other.
Which can lead to some pretty amazing things.
University of Essex professor Dr. Huosheng Hu had a radical idea: data-gathering robotic fish that can measure pollution levels in the world’s bodies of water.
By tapping into Web of Science, he leveraged the robotics work of other experts. Pathways from 40 million records pointed him to a single groundbreaking discovery about particle sensors: just what Dr. Hu needed to build his robot fish and turn his idea into reality.
The result? An engineering marvel.
These artificially-intelligent, self-sustaining fish will one day swim the world’s oceans, transmitting the data they collect via wireless internet signal to an on-shore control center.
That will help marine scientists identify oil spills, contaminants and other abnormalities. And one of the most important ecosystems can remain as healthy, vibrant, and alive as nature intended it to be.
Connecting leading researchers to spark more world-changing breakthroughs. Proof that the right information in the right hands leads to amazing things. That’s the Knowledge Effect.
