David Glance sits down with Apple co-founder and inventor of the Apple 1 computer, Steve Wozniak, to talk about his life, his thoughts on Apple then and now and how technology is changing the world.
Windows 10 was designed with more than the desktop in mind.
A year after its launch, Windows 10 continues to evolve and improve upon its predecessor. However, the privacy concerns still haven't gone away.
The Titan Supercomputer, in the US, has allowed scientists to study ice formation on wind turbines at a molecular level.

Developing new technologies requires time-consuming, expensive and even dangerous experiments. But now we can carry out many experiments entirely on computers using modelling.
New research shows how adding memory to bacterial circuits could help us harness their computing power.
Preparing conducting carbon nanospheres that operate as qubits at room temperature (right) by burning naphthalene (left).

Much of the current research in quantum computing involves work at close to absolute zero. A simple breakthough with an everyday material could see them work at more acceptable temperatures.
Sounds scary ... so should we be worried?
Coding has become a core part of the curriculum.

The influence of private interests in English schools is on the up.
The impressive computer aided design of the atrium at Melbourne’s Federation Square.
The architect's pen and paper were replaced by the mouse and monitor thanks to developments in computing. Now computers are helping create designs never thought possible before.
Upgrading your home PC is one thing, but upgrading systems that run banking, air traffic control or even nuclear weapons is not something done lightly. Or often.
Consciousness might emerge from a particular kind of information processing.
Consciousness is one of the most mysterious phenomena we know of. But evidence is emerging that it might just be a very special kind of information processing.
Obama visits students during a coding event at the White House.
President Obama wants every student to learn computer science. Are separate computing classes the only way to do this?
What are the challenges of expanding K-12 computer science education?
Computer science has become a popular major and public schools want to extend instruction. Where are the teachers?
Good things come in small packages, but are all small packages a good thing?
Micro:bit has a parallel in the Model B, which the BBC launched in the 1980s.
The CERN datacentre is the ground zero, but only part, of a worldwide computing grid.
The 'supercomputer' that processes LHC's data is a networked grid that spans the entire planet.
Benedict Cumberbatch brings to life Turing’s amazing mental engagement with his machine.
Movies about mathematicians are rare, the problem being that the real action is all in the head. At first sight, maths doesn’t quite have the cinematic potential of a car chase or a romantic love story…
It’s not just about getting a job.

The US and UK governments often mirror each other’s strategies when it comes to new education policies, and the recent introduction of coding into the school curriculum is no exception. From this September…
Neurons provided inspiration for a new type of computer chip.
Computers and brains work in virtually opposite ways. Computers are laboriously programmed for specific tasks. Brains learn from experience and can perform a wide variety of complicated tasks that are…
