Scientists couple magnetization to superconductivity for quantum discoveries (10/09/2019)

Quantum computing promises to revolutionize the ways in which scientists can process and manipulate information. The physical and material underpinnings for quantum technologies are still being explored, and researchers continue to look for new ways in which information can be manipulated and exchanged at the quantum level.

New insulation technique paves the way for more powerful and smaller chips (10/09/2019)

Researchers have successfully developed a new technique to insulate microchips. The technique uses metal-organic frameworks, a new type of materials consisting of structured nanopores. In the long term, this method can be used for the development of even smaller and more powerful chips that consume less energy.

Researchers develop low-power, low-cost network for 5G connectivity (10/09/2019)

Researchers at the University of Waterloo have developed a cheaper and more efficient method for Internet-of-Things devices to receive high-speed wireless connectivity.

Revolutionary New Discovery on Metal Malleability (01/09/2019)

For nearly 100 years, scientists thought they understood everything there was to know about how metals bend.

Complex quantum teleportation achieved for the first time (26/08/2019)

Austrian and Chinese scientists have succeeded in teleporting three-dimensional quantum states for the first time. High-dimensional teleportation could play an important role in future quantum computers.

New process advances the field of carbon utilization (26/08/2019)

In an effort to develop sustainable solutions to humanity's energy needs, many scientists are studying carbon capture and utilization—the practice of using excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere or from point sources, instead of fossil fuels, to synthesize chemicals used to make everyday products, from plastics to fuels to pharmaceuticals.

Producing protein batteries for safer, environmentally friendly power storage (26/08/2019)

Proteins are good for building muscle, but their building blocks also might be helpful for building sustainable organic batteries that could someday be a viable substitute for conventional lithium-ion batteries, without their safety and environmental concerns. By using synthetic polypeptides—which make up proteins —- and other polymers, researchers have taken the first steps toward constructing electrodes for such power sources. The work could also provide a new understanding of electron-transfer mechanisms.

AI system optimally allocates workloads across thousands of servers to cut costs, save energy (24/08/2019)

A novel system developed by MIT researchers automatically "learns" how to schedule data-processing operations across thousands of servers—a task traditionally reserved for imprecise, human-designed algorithms. Doing so could help today's power-hungry data centers run far more efficiently.

Intel: Hot Chips event details AI-strength processors (23/08/2019)

Tech watchers this week got an earful of impressive AI accelerator work at Intel, namely revelations at the Hot Chips 2019 event, where Intel presented details of its Nervana neural network processors, (1) NNP-T for training and (2) NNP-I for inference.

Switching electron properties on and off individually (23/08/2019)

Properties of complex materials are often determined by the interplay of several electron properties. TU Wien (Vienna) has now succeeded in disentangling this mess.
