ZiiLABS unveils 100-Core ZMS-40 processor: Double the performance, half the power consumption
ZiiLABS, a pioneering media processor and platforms company (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Creative Technology Ltd), today unveiled its ground-breaking 100-core ZMS-40 StemCell Media processor optimized for ...
Simplicity and quantum complexity
Simulations of reality would require less memory on a quantum computer than on a classical computer, new research from scientists at the University of Bristol, published in Nature Communications, has shown.
How to control complex networks
At first glance, a diagram of the complex network of genes that regulate cellular metabolism might seem hopelessly complex, and efforts to control such a system futile.
Carbon nanotube harpoon catches individual brain-cell signals
Neuroscientists may soon be modern-day harpooners, snaring individual brain-cell signals instead of whales with tiny spears made of carbon nanotubes.
How computers push on the molecules they simulate
Because modern computers have to depict the real world with digital representations of numbers instead of physical analogues, to simulate the continuous passage of time they have to digitize time into small ...
Researchers break the animal kingdom's colour code
Charles Darwin was fascinated by the colours of animals - he once wrote to his colleague Alfred Russell Wallace asking why certain animals were "so
beautifully and artistically coloured".
Birds of a feather: Study finds particles, molecules prefer not to mix
(PhysOrg.com) -- In the world of small things, shape, order and orientation are surprisingly important, according to findings from a new study by chemists at Washington University in St. Louis.
NASA develops key to cosmic carbon's molecular evolution
(Phys.org) —Scientists at NASA's Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif., now have the capability to systematically investigate the molecular evolution of cosmic carbon. For the first time, these scientists ...
New approach can control large complex networks, from cells to power grids
As the world becomes increasingly connected, the need to ensure the proper functioning of its many underlying networks—such as the Internet, power grids, global air transportation and ecological networks—also is increasing. ...
Developing methods for quantifying uncertainty and sensitivity for complex systems
Applied mathematicians Markos Katsoulakis and Luc Rey-Bellet of the University of Massachusetts Amherst will share a three-year, $2.3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, with others, to develop ...
