Researchers ran computer simulations that take into account environmental variability and geographical setting to investigate how early explorers made it to these tiny, remote islands in the Pacific.
We drew inspiration from nature's response to complexity to help program the winning team in this year's RoboCup Simulation League.
Sounds scary ... so should we be worried?
Millions of people die or suffer from infectious diseases each year. Computer modelling can now help simulate the impact of any spreading disease.
Scientists of all kinds turn to computer models to investigate questions they can't get at any other way. Here's how models work and why we can trust them.
