Artificial brains are far in the future, but computer chips that work like brains could keep computers advancing when today’s silicon transistor chips reach their limit.
Tiny surface acoustic waves are enough to carry data quickly.
After electric and magnetic fields, nanoscale sound waves are a new idea for data storage.
Will we see DNA in the mainframe?
A DNA-powered PC may not be on the horizon, but DNA can still compute even if it can’t build a computer.
Quantum computing may still have the status of a rank outsider, but it’s making gains.
Silicon isn’t the perfect semiconductor, it’s just the one we’re using. How can we ensure our electronics keep get getting faster in the face of silicon’s natural physical limits?
Microsoft’s CEO hopes Windows 10 is his hero moment.
Satya Nadella hopes he can do with Windows 10 what Bill Gates managed to do with Windows 95 almost 20 years ago.
A computer-on-a-stick is the start, but they’ll get smaller and smarter yet.
Smaller computer are coming to your pocket, and then your homes, your workplaces, and everywhere else.
Imagine a machine that can learn things from scratch, no pre-programmed rules. What could it do?
Tech companies are investing big in artificial intelligence research that allows machines to learn things from scratch, with no pre-programmed rules. So what’s the potential for this new technology?
For Google, the map is not the end product.
Google has managed to map most of the world. Recently, the company offered a behind-the-scenes glimpse into how it’s built the Google Maps application using a combination of technology (the Google Street…
What’s in store from the future smartphone?
It should be no surprise to anyone that many smartphones may have been designed to last about 24 months – the length of a typical contract with a network service provider. After all, it is a fast-moving…
A team of researchers have determined a new way to distinguish quantum bits in the eventual creation of a quantum computer…
