A new, inexpensive sensor developed at the University of British

Professor Kwabena Boahen has written “A Neuromorph’s Prospectus” outlining how to build computers that directly mimic in silicon what the brain does in flesh and blood. Credit: L.A. Cicero Conventional computer chips aren’t up to the challenges posed by next-generation autonomous drones and medical implants. Now, Kwabena Boahen has laid out a way forward, using

This emerged from a study carried out by the University of Twente (UT), in collaboration with the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS). Professor Frank Leferink

Using advanced mathematics, researchers hope to create models of biological systems that can inform our understanding of normal development and disease.Credit: University of Michigan What makes a cluster of cells become a liver, or a muscle? How do our genes give rise to proteins, proteins to cells, and cells to tissues and organs? The incredible

Upping the ante on artificial intelligence: Michael Bowling (center) flanked by the co-authors of DeepStack.Credit: John Ulan A team of computing scientists from the University of Alberta’s Computer Poker Research Group is once again capturing the world’s collective fascination with artificial intelligence. In a historic result for the flourishing AI research community, the team —

In a study in Science, researchers Yaniv Erlich and Dina Zielinski describe a new coding technique for maximizing the data-storage capacity of DNA molecules.Credit: New York Genome Center Humanity may soon generate more data than hard drives or magnetic tape can handle, a problem that has scientists turning to nature’s age-old solution for information-storage —

Credit: public domain Researchers from The University of Manchester have shown it is possible to build a new super-fast form of computer that “grows as it computes”. Professor Ross D King and his team have demonstrated for the first time the feasibility of engineering a nondeterministic universal Turing machine (NUTM), and their research is to

A computer method called ZeitZeiger that uses a sample of blood to accurately predict circadian time – the time of day according to a person’s body clock – is described in new research published in the open access journal Genome Medicine. Dr Jake Hughey, lead author from Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, USA said: “Our

The app records a cyclist’s trip and uses the data of the movement and speed to track traffic congestion. Credit: Cornell Tech/Provided Traffic jams are a huge problem for many large U.S. cities. Mismanaged transit in Washington, D.C., Los Angeles and New York City each year leads to billion-dollar losses, as well as hundreds of

Editing bots on Wikipedia undo vandalism, enforce bans, check spelling, create links and import content automatically, whereas other bots (which are non-editing)
