Astrophysicists believe that our galaxy must be filled with more dark matter than ordinary matter. Now astronomers say they can find no evidence of dark matter’s gravitational influence on the planets. What gives?
A chip that uses a million digital neurons and 256 million synapses may signal the beginning of a new era of more intelligent computers.
Precise combustion control cuts fuel consumption by more than 30 percent.
Besides health tracking, contact lens technology under development could enable drug delivery, night vision, and augmented reality.
Efforts to contain Ebola in West Africa suffer from a lack of effective tools to treat and prevent the disease, although several are in development.
Microsoft researchers are developing an algorithm that would allow speakers to work like virtual headphones–even as you walk around your office.
As life has evolved, its complexity has increased exponentially, just like Moore’s law. Now geneticists have extrapolated this trend backwards and found that by this measure, life is older than the Earth itself.
In-car applications and wireless connectivity are a boon to hackers who take aim at cars.
Conventional batteries take so long to charge that they cannot efficiently store braking energy. Graphene supercapacitors store almost as much but charge in just 16 seconds.
A system designed to let carriers remotely install software on phones, or change their settings without a user noticing, is open to abuse.
