In the July edition of R.Science, we bring you some highlights of this year’s Summer Science Exhibition and discover more about some of the exciting research forming our Year of Science and Industry. We investigate whether we will ever have emotionally convincing android voices, discover how technology can help environmental sciences and learn about the uses of applying quantum mechanics to information systems. We also find out more about what our Industry Fellows are researching and finally we hear two of the most intriguing questions put to the exhibitors at the Summer Science Exhibition and how they answered them.
