ICT Results is an editorial service created for the European Commission to showcase EU-funded ICT research and activities. ICT is currently charged with the mission of making European industry more competitive by conducting research in technology, science and industry. ICT Results was formed in 2003 and reorganized in 2007 for the purpose of creating a marketing, editing, research and communication entity. ICT's primary purpose is to account for funding and communicate to members, the public and governments the nature of their research in technology and science. ICT Results has a permissive attitude toward republishing their work and some stock photos. ICT Results only asks for a “Source Credit” and notification of the use of their work via the drop-down e-mail form. This is for the purpose of tracking interest in their work.

Nanospheres stretch limits of hard disk storage

(PhysOrg.com) -- A new magnetic recording medium made up of tiny nanospheres has been devised by European researchers. The technology may lead to hard disks able to store more than a thousand billion bits of information in ...

Algorithms provide a model of railway efficiency

(PhysOrg.com) -- If you've noticed that Dutch trains experience less delays or that waiting times are shorter on the Berlin underground you can thank a team of European researchers whose advanced algorithms are optimising ...

Robots learning from experience (w/ Video)

Software that enables robots to move objects about a room, building up ever-more knowledge about their environment, is an important step forward in artificial intelligence.

Virtual reality you can reach out and touch

A team of European researchers has "virtually" teleported real objects through cyberspace, touched things in virtual reality and even felt the movements of a virtual dance partner.

Single photons step into the slow light

(PhysOrg.com) -- European experts in nanotechnology, optoelectronics and quantum physics have advanced the generation, detection and manipulation of single photons in semiconductors. Their discoveries bring practical single-photon ...

Fab new laser nano-fabrication technology

(PhysOrg.com) -- Laser interference lithography can produce very high-resolution nano-scale surface patterns at low cost, and now European researchers have made important breakthroughs in the area.

Light-generating transistors to power labs on chips

(PhysOrg.com) -- What started out as 'blue-sky' thinking by a group of European researchers could ultimately lead to the commercial mass production of a new generation of optoelectronic components for devices ranging from ...

Bio-inspired computer networks self-organise and learn

(PhysOrg.com) -- Powerful computers made up of physically separate modules, self-organising networks, and computing inspired by biological systems are three hot research topics coming together in one European project.

Growing Europe's nanowires

(PhysOrg.com) -- European researchers have developed state-of-the-art nanowire 'growing' technology, opening the way for faster, smaller microchips and creating a promising new avenue of research and industrial development ...

Argumentative agents for online deal-making

(PhysOrg.com) -- Software agents that play devil's advocate and quarrel with each other may not sound like something you would want in your computer. But, say a team of European researchers, argumentative agents promise faster, ...
