Tokyo-based NTT along with the National Institute of Informatics and the University of Tokyo are working on a quantum computing device that exploits the properties of light. Backed with state investment, the quantum neural network (QNN) prototype is reported to be capable of prolonged operation at room temperature.
A PhD student in Ontario has made a groundbreaking discovery that may have the potential to prevent cancer cells from spreading.
‘We no longer have to live with the genetics we had when we were born... even somebody who is uninformed or less informed could effectively create a CRISPR targeting system to a gene with really little effort or knowledge’
Using sensors the car can conduct its own health check to detect any damages and self-repair itself by filling the crack with nanotubes to prevent it spreading.
The images are a “huge step forward” in understanding disorders such as autism, schizophrenia and Parkinson’s Disease.
The long-term aim that the researchers have is the creation of so-called neuromorphic computer architectures – i.e. computers which replicate the human brain. One central feature is the elimination of the separation between processor and data storage. “We are also computing with light – and not with electrons, as is the case with traditional computers”
Nano-technology company Dotz Nano (ASX: DTZ) has received its first major sales order for its graphene quantum dots worth A$135,000.
In a mind-boggling world first, a team of biologists and security researchers have successfully infected a computer with a strand of DNA.
A supercomputer surpasses the proposed limit of using conventional machines to simulate quantum computers
Nanomaterials are showing great potential in biomedicine since they can interact precisely with living systems down to the level of cells, subcellular structures and even individual molecules.
A ‘Molecular Trap’ for Capturing Radioactive Iodides in Nuclear Waste
Terahertz radiation has a wide range of uses and can occur in everything from radio astronomy to medicine. The term refers to the electromagnetic waves whose frequencies range from 100 gigahertz to 10 terahertz. Demand for higher bandwidth in wireless communications and depiction for security applications has led to intensified research on systems and components intended for terahertz frequencies.
