One of the ways that computers 'think' is by analysing relationships within large sets of data. An international team has shown that quantum computers can do one such analysis faster than classical computers, for a wider array of data...
Stretchy, bendable electronics could have many uses, such as monitoring patients' health and keeping tabs on airplanes. Credit: Benjamin Leever, Ph.D. A new world of flexible, bendable, even stretchable electronics is emerging from research labs to address a wide range of...

Make America tweet again

We know how Donald Trump feels about everyone through Twitter, but how do Twitter users feel about Donald Trump? Computer scientists from the University of Utah's College of Engineering have developed what they call "sentiment analysis" software that can automatically...
Samsung Electronics today announced that it has commenced mass production of System-on-Chip (SoC) products with 10-nanometer (nm) FinFET technology for which would make it first in the industry. Following the successful mass production of the industry's first FinFET mobile application...
This image shows the fabrication steps from raw circular filament to a fully functional bending artificial muscle. The bottom filament is a raw circular filament. Researchers press the filament using a rolling mill (the second sample from the bottom)....
According to the researchers, creativity is our ability to think in new and original ways to solve problems. Credit: © Photographee.eu / Fotolia Developing an original and creative idea requires the simultaneous activation of two completely different networks in the brain:...
Image Credit:Flickr/IoSonoUnaFotoCamera Jiebo Luo and Yu Wang did not set out to predict who would win the 2016 U.S. presidential election. However, their exhaustive, 14-month study of each candidate’s Twitter followers–enabled by machine learning and other data science tools–offers tantalizing...
The prototype of an antiferromagnetic magnetoelectric memory chip, which was invented by researchers from Dresden and Basel. It consists of a thin layer of chromium oxide (Cr2O3) for saving data, on top of which the physicists attached a nanometer-thin...
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...
