Physicists over at National Institute of Standards and Time have managed to build a clock that has an instability of one part in 10-18.
Results of a $2 billion experiment onboard the International Space Station may very well be at the point of explaining the existence of dark matter that holds the cosmos together.
Team of researchers and engineers at California Institute of Technology (Caltech) has developed ‘self-healing’ chips that would heal themselves within a few microseconds and recover from faults that may range from less battery power to complete transistor failure.
Western Digital claims to have doubled the storage capacity of hard disk drives (HDD) by a special process called nanolithography – a process that imprints patterns on the thin film of hard drive platters where data is stored.
Microsoft Research has teamed up with the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology to develop software that can predict events like outbreaks of disease or violence by mining data from old news and the web.
Physicists over at the University of Cambridge have created a microchip that allows information to travel in 3D and is capable of storing up to 1,000 times more data as compared to currently available microchips.
Efficient storage & retrieval of data in DNA may not be as far-fetched as it may have been thought before as researchers over at the EMBL-European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) have invented a method through which data can be stored and retrieved in the form of DNA with 100 per cent accuracy.
Russian search engine and Google’s competitor Yandex is offering its core search technology to CERN to test their work in physics.
Stephen Hawking’s ability to communicate has been deteriorating over the years and as it stands, the physicist is able to only communicate at the rate of 1 word per minute currently which is about to change as Intel is working on an interface that will boost the scientist’s speech to up to 10 words per minute.
