    The conventional way of assessing the magnitude of nuisance odours using an olfactometer and a sensory panel is costly. This paper describes experiments that have been conducted into matching the results from trained sensory panellists to those from a conducting polymer-based electronic nose. By taking the data from the electronic nose and applying them to a trained neural network, it has been sho... View full abstract»

    By the end of 1866, when the first transatlantic telegraph had been successfully brought into operation, it was widely believed that the technological problems which had surrounded the design, laying and working of long undersea cables had been settled. Yet a closer scrutiny of events during the planning, laying and subsequent working of the next major cable, which linked France with the United St... View full abstract»
