Programming the forces of evolution
Programming the forces of evolution
The genius of evolution is rarely seen in action, so the invisible hand guiding the direction of biological systems is often taken for granted.
Superfast all-RAM processors could bring high-performance computers to the masses
Superfast all-RAM processors could bring high-performance computers to the masses
Today’s computer processors are pretty fast. Under optimal conditions, a desktop can come close to teraflop speeds, which is a million million operations per second .
Levitation becomes a reality
Levitation becomes a reality
Levitation is an old dream of humankind. For centuries, magicians gave audiences the illusion of defying gravity, seemingly making objects of people float into the air. Now European scientists are turning this into reality.
How machines can learn from human behaviour
