How will a mass influx of robots affect human employment?
In September, a team of Google engineers showed how to translate one language into another by finding the linear transformation that maps one to the other.
If electric cars become popular quickly, the demand for charging them is likely to exceed supply. Now mathematicians have worked out how electricity companies can distribute their power fairly to car owners. But the price–accurate information about driving habits–may be too much to ask.
Unlike conventional semiconductors, graphene cannot be switched off, a problem that threatens to scupper its use in future generations of transistors. Now physicists think they’ve found a solution.
A new website ranks the world’s scientific institutions by discipline and shows their location on a global map
A new model of the way the THz waves interact with DNA explains how the damage is done and why evidence has been so hard to gather
Hardware like the headset made by Oculus VR will allow virtual worlds to offer person-to-person interactions that compete with real life.
All over the world, weather radar images are being plagued by signals from the latest generation of five GHz Wi-Fi. Now Austrian researchers have developed a fix.
Astronomers have long known that combining the data from several astrophotographs can reveal dramatically more detail about astrophysical objects. So what will they discover by combining all the astrophotographs on the Web?
Einstein railed against the possibility of spooky action at a distance because it violates relativity. Now Chinese physicists have clocked it travelling more than four orders of magnitude faster than light
