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.
Advanced Cell Technology is testing a stem-cell treatment for blindness that could preserve vision and potentially reverse vision loss.
When a century-old wheat market went electronic, it became a living laboratory for the impact of high-speed trading.
A trading strategy revealed in two new patents illustrates the high speed game of cat and mouse played by automated traders.
In a remarkable study, a paralyzed woman used her mind to control a robotic arm. If only there were a realistic way to get this technology out of the lab and into real life.
Our cosmos was “bruised” in collisions with other universes. Now astronomers have found the first evidence of these impacts in the cosmic microwave background.
