  • China Bags Second Gordon Bell Prize
    on January 1, 1970 at 12:00 am

    Asian ScientistACM has named a Chinese research team the recipient of the 2017 ACM Gordon Bell Prize for an earthquake simulation project involving software that is capable of efficiently processing 18.9 petaflops of data and generating three-dimensional (3D) models of a 1976 quake that occurred in Tangshan, China. The team notes its on-the-fly data compression technique could be applied to other exascale computing challenges. "The...scheme...at the cost of an acceptable level of accuracy […]

  • UNSW Team Develops Cybersecurity Education App
    on January 1, 1970 at 12:00 am

    UNSW NewsroomResearchers at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Australia have developed Artificial Learning Intelligence for Centralized Education (ALICE), an app that uses 1980s-style arcade games to help users navigate a range of cybersecurity scenarios with the goal of recovering stolen identities. ALICE users navigate "the network," trying to outsmart viruses, beating attack malware, and warding off phishing attacks on their social media accounts. In addition, players can get […]

    on January 1, 1970 at 12:00 am

    The National (Scotland)Researchers at Edinburgh University in the U.K. and China-based Huawei are collaborating on the development of robots supported by fifth-generation (5G) wireless networks. 5G wireless technology is being developed to support data-driven innovation in areas such as the Internet of Things, in which artificially intelligent (AI) objects can autonomously interact with each other. The Edinburgh team says it will focus on how AI systems can use wireless 5G networks to provide […]

    on January 1, 1970 at 12:00 am

    University of York Researchers at the University of York in the U.K. have found a connection between young people's ability to perform well at two popular video games and high levels of intelligence. The team concentrated on Multiplayer Online Battle Arenas (MOBAs) that usually involve two opposing teams of five individuals, and multiplayer First Person Shooter (FPS) games. They found for large groups comprised of thousands of players, performance in MOBAs and intelligence quotient (IQ) […]

    on January 1, 1970 at 12:00 am

    Florida State University NewsResearchers at Florida State University (FSU), Florida A&M University, and the National Institute of Applied Sciences in France have developed a class of motion sensors they say could lead to ubiquitous, fully integrated, and affordable wearable technology. The researchers say the new sensors are made using buckypaper, which are razor-thin, flexible sheets of pure, exceptionally durable carbon nanotubes. The buckypaper sensors represent a significant […]
