Research on molecular machines won last year's Nobel Prize in chemistry. Now scientists have figured out a way to get these tiny molecules to join forces and collaborate on real work on a macro scale.
A CSIRO report suggests Australian manufacturers need to better design custom products and hook into global supply chains to survive.
Computers are taking over our jobs, but this doesn't have to be a bad thing.
Intelligent machines are taking on many of the jobs once carried out by humans but that doesn't mean we'll have mass unemployment.
