Climate experts estimate risk of rapid crop slowdown

The world faces a small but substantially increased risk over the next two decades of a major slowdown in the growth of global crop yields because of climate change, new research finds. The authors, from Stanford University and the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), say the odds of a major production slowdown of wheat and corn even with a...

Collecting just the right data

Collecting just the right data When you can't collect all the data you need, a new algorithm tells you which to target Much artificial-intelligence research addresses the problem of making predictions based on large data sets. An obvious example is the recommendation engines at retail sites like Amazon and Netflix. But some types of data are harder to collect than...

AI identifies musical progression of the Beatles

Artificial intelligence identifies the musical progression of the Beatles Music fans and critics know that the music of the Beatles underwent a dramatic transformation in just a few years, but until now there hasn't been a scientific way to measure the progression. That could change now that computer scientists at Lawrence Technological University have developed an artificial intelligence algorithm that...

Unleashing the power of quantum dot triplets

Unleashing the power of quantum dot triplets Another step towards faster computers relies on three coherently coupled quantum dots used as quantum information units Unleashing the power of quantum dot triplets Quantum supercomputers have yet to materialise. Yet, scientists are making progress in devising suitable means of making such supercomputers faster. One such approach relies on quantum dots—a kind of...

Technology's future effects on society to be discussed at Purdue summit

Technology's future effects on society to be discussed at Purdue summit

Will superintelligent computers hundreds of times smarter than humans help us solve difficult problems such as the causes of cancer or climate change, or will they decide we're all just raw materials they need to consume in order to expand? Will industrial robots free us from mundane and poor-paying factory jobs, or will they displace workers and trigger a world-wide...

The birth of topological spintronics

The birth of topological spintronics

The discovery of a new material combination that could lead to a more efficient approach to computer memory and logic will be described in the journal Nature on July 24, 2014. The research, led by Penn State University and Cornell University physicists, studies "spin torque" in devices that combine a standard magnetic material with a novel material known as a...
