A chat about freedom, hacker spirit and the sharing economy with Richard Stallman, the programmer who invented the GNU software licenses and the GNU/Linux operating system.
Quantum computers are thought to be in line to revolutionise research due to their enormous data crunching capabilities, which will force banks to change their encryption systems.
Scientists get closer to applying the insights of quantum mechanics to new technological communication and sensing devices.
Understanding the brain mechanisms underpinning non-verbal communication, particularly in the context of creativity, is a challenge that requires the combined talents of a multidisciplinary team.
Quantum cryptography is said to be uncrackable. It will stay safe, but only if true randomness, the generation and use of intrinsically random numbers, can be achieved.
Anticipating the advent of the quantum computer, related mathematical methods already provide insight into conventional computer science.
Artificial emotions can help people communicate, but they raise ethical issues too.
Today's computer-based avatars lack one of our most deeply rooted human characteristics: laughter. Computer scientists have now teamed up with psychologists to give avatars the ability to laugh.
Repellents derived from Greek herb extracts show potent effects, as spatial repellents, against malaria carrying mosquitoes, and possibly others.
A common policy across Europe would provide consistency in recognising both the condition and the rights of this vulnerable group of children.
Advanced graphics processors, new algorithms and advanced mathematics will soon make a new 3D video technology gathering feed from multiple sources possible
Newly developed robotic kits with legs, inspired from animal movement, constitute off-the-shelf solutions for scientist who need to model movement
It is now possible to sense scientific data as a means to deal with the mountains of information we face in our environment by applying subconscious processing to big data analysis
Next generation robotics development give robots sensory capabilities and the ability to interact with their environment
Science is becoming closer emulating the fiction of the Avatar movie, by deciphering plants’ electrical signals to devise new holistic environmental biosensors
A smart phone app points people the way, assists event organisers in preventing emergency cases and turns its creators into technology entrepreneurs.
Bill Wei shares his views on the use of a dual fingerprinting technology for the prevention of art theft
Europe’s austerity policies are harming the health of their populations, according to Martin McKee of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
The European Research Council (ERC) is on a mission to entice researchers from across the globe to apply for its substantial grants
