Find the most up-to-date information about computer technology on subjects such as Nanotechnology, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Biotechnology, Graphene Technology Battery Technology, and more. Find out about research from top labs and universities like MIT, Cal Tech, Yale, Karlsruhe Tech, and Vienna Tech.

The latest advancements in artificial intelligent systems like facial recognition or speech recognition are the result of neural networks, densely interconnected meshes comprised of basic information processors. Researchers have come up with an entirely new type of information processor that may help in the development of more intelligent devices by mimicking the processing power of the human brain.

Engineers have been working for years to develop microprocessors that are more powerful and use less energy. Now, they have achieved an important milestone with a chip which uses quantum computing that can perform billions of calculations per second in the same size as today’s fastest processors.

Security of personal information is more important than ever. Data breaches have destroyed Fortune 100 companies and ruined the reputations of powerful executives. They’ve also forced historic educational institutions to shut down. But many security tools fail and some can be risky. Now, a team of cybersecurity scientists has developed an efficient and secure method to shield information from hackers.

New research shows that disorganization more than cost is the driving cause of improper IT disposal of hardware, thereby increasing the issue of increasing e-waste. Additionally, Apple adds an OtterPilot feature to its Siri virtual assistant to transcribe meetings for customer relationship management and to automate CRM data entry.
