Running out of disk space and it’s making you anxious?
Just three big developers are being paid tens of millions of pounds to supply the majority of these UK systems.
The most effective solution is also the most radical.
DNA has been storing vast amounts of biological information for billions of years. Researchers are working to harness DNA for archiving data. A new method uses light to simplify the process.
The growth in information production appears unstoppable.
Storing information using polymers could be more efficient than DNA data storage.
One bespoke contact tracing device is a bluetooth ‘pen’ device, which can be handed in if diagnosed without relying on smartphones.
While the data from a fingerprint is very hard to retrieve, cybercriminals can get around biometric technology in various ways. And having a weak passcode is like giving them a hall pass.
A major cyber attack on a data lake could have immense consequences for any of us. And the damage could be felt anywhere from banking to the healthcare sector.
As billions more devices connect to the cloud, congestion will cause communication to become slower and less responsive.
From eye-scanners to 3D printers, technology in humanitarian crises can be a positive force for disenfranchised people.
Technologies for accessing information need to be somehow future-proofed.
Work to develop a single-atom magnet that works at room temperature has just taken a big leap forward.
Researchers who hold the world record for storing and retrieving data in DNA explain how the building blocks of life can be used to hold digital information as well.
From military mapping to brain imaging, holograms are no longer relegated to your bank card.
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?
The ATO system crash was unusual, but it was handled as well as could be expected.
With current modes up against their limits, we need new data storage solutions. Tiny defects in diamonds’ atomic structure might turn them into a new medium for memory.
The speed comparison between today’s technology and femtosecond spintronics is like comparing the fastest bullet train on Earth to the speed of light.
After electric and magnetic fields, nanoscale sound waves are a new idea for data storage.
