Video games can provide disabled people with a safe haven, if they can access it.
We have never been so connected and we are producing more data than ever before. But how can we manage our data effectively while making sure it remains safe?
Updated guidelines for how much screen time children can have puts most of the onus on the parents to decide.
Could reservoir computing be a future alternative to silicon chips?
This year marks the 30th birthday of .au domains. We've come a long way but there's big change ahead.
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.
When we ditched high-school Latin we lost a great intellectual training. Here's how to get it back without resorting to a dead language.
Computing has been getting much smarter since the idea of artificial intelligent was first thought of 60 years ago. But are computers intelligent?
It took a computer to discover the potential threat of a drug-resistant strain of swine flu that was about to spread from New South Wales. So how close did we come to a global pandemic?
The switch from analogue to digital television transmission transformed the way audiences consume content.
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.
Millions of people die or suffer from infectious diseases each year. Computer modelling can now help simulate the impact of any spreading disease.
The greatest tool of artists is their imagination but throw in a computer and things never imagined become possible.
The brain is the most complex organ and system know to humans. It helps to create a computer model of one to find out how things work, and why things go wrong.
Computers are increasingly used to prove mathematical theorems. So does that mean human mathematicians will become obselete?
Computer modelling can help predict where a species will best survive, especially those affected by climate change.
The first in our series looking at the changes that have been made in computing and other areas in the 60 years since the first computer in an Australian university was switched on.
Computerised High-Frequency Trading (HFC) has been blamed for recent volatility in the share market, does this represent the new normal?
As machines get ever more complex as we strive to make them complete more complex tasks, it's time to ask again: will they ever be able to think? But what is thinking anyway?
