Combined memristor and transistor operates like a neuron by performing both information processing and memory storage functions.
Engineers at the University of Washington have for the first time developed a method to safely charge a smartphone wirelessly using a laser.
A team from the Industrial and Systems Engineering department at Lehigh University gathered with their colleagues at the KAUST Research Workshop on Optimization and Big Data in February to discuss the latest developments in big data optimization algorithms, theory, applications and systems.
The heating should only switch on when necessary, or the house should only be ventilated during the time that it takes to do this, but no longer. The Energy in Building research group has developed a prototype of a piece of equipment capable of monitoring more environmental variables and sending information to the user or even to another device so that action can be taken accordingly.
Researchers at the USC Center for Artificial Intelligence in Society have long been applying AI to protect wildlife. Initially, computer scientists were using AI and game theory to anticipate the poachers' haunts, and now they have applied artificial intelligence and deep learning to spot poachers in near real-time.
Virginia Tech researchers discovered ways to further improve computing efficiency using management tools for cloud-based light-weight virtual machine replacements called containers.
Using patient measurement data, researchers from Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin and the Berlin Institute of Health have succeeded in further refining the brain modeling platform 'The Virtual Brain.' The software, which has been downloaded almost 11,000 times to date, has been used in projects and publications across the globe. The latest findings have been published in eLife.
New research reveals the benefits of using social media for young people in care. Until now, the automatic assumption has been that platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp only pose a risk for this vulnerable group. But young people in care benefit from the psychological, emotional and social support gained via online networks.
Researchers used machine learning techniques, including natural language processing algorithms, to identify clinical concepts in radiologist reports for CT scans.
Berkeley Lab physicists and their collaborators have demonstrated that computers are ready to tackle the universe's greatest mysteries -- they used neural networks to perform a deep dive into data simulating the subatomic particle soup that may have existed just microseconds after the big bang.
