An IBM team has built the most advanced fully functional graphene IC (integrated circuit) to date. Such graphene-based circuits could allow mobile devices like smart phones, tablets and wearable electronics to transmit much faster data loads in a more cost-effective and power-efficient manner, compared to traditional technology methods.
One of 21 new Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Awards that provides five-year’s support for outstanding scientists to help continue their ground-breaking work, has been awarded to Professor Claire Halpin, a University of Dundee scientist.
He blames it all on Chrome, which highlighted Danger: Malware Ahead..so he switched to another browser and that seemed OK. BUT indeed ComputeScotland then crashed for three days and Gaberlunzie simply got drowned out. He is informed however that it was 'a minor issue which did not affect any of our live websites.' The real culprit was a hard disc that failed that incovenienced no-one (except for Gaberlunzie plagued by no text load, no picture load and no newsletter send).
Scientists at EMBL-EBI have developed EC-BLAST: software that makes it easier to develop novel enzymes. Published in "Nature Methods," the program makes it possible to quickly compare functions of thousands of catalysts, facilitating research into anything from efficient production of biofuels to drug interactions.
The expansion of technology around the world is happening because technology is transforming everything, from economy to workplaces and gadgets explains Jonathan Krim of theWall Street Journal new technology pages.
The elemental particle that gives mass to matter, and required to demonstrate its existence, was achieved by an international team that included 18 Mexicans. The Mexican researchers had an outstanding participation in the detection, analysis, development of a computer network and design of the software that was used to interpret the obtained results.
University of Edinburgh Principal, Professor Sir Timothy O'Shea has welcomed the announcement that the Scottish Government is to contribute £2 million to the Higgs Centre at the University of Edinburgh.
World-leading scientists will push the boundaries of studies on how to deflect asteroids and manipulate space debris, as the University of Strathclyde gets set to transform international space research.
The Bloodhound project to showcase the best of UK engineering was exhibited at an event held by design and technology consultancy Cambridge Design Partnership with the business network for Cambridge’s technology hub,Cambridge Network,
European HiPEAC (High-Performance Embedded Architecture and Compilation) network presents a strong technology transfer strategy with three new programs and incentives at a total of €80million for three years. It will offer 20 tech transfer awards, 50 Tetracom and 150 I4MS awards yearly.
Technology is widely seen by most countries as one of the key industries for the 21st century, not only as a key sector in itself for generating economic output and employment, but also for underpinning the growth of other industries - everything from defence to healthcare to financial services. Yet despite its importance, it has not been an industry that has traditionally had a high profile in the UK compared to other sectors such as financial services, media, fashion and going further back, manufacturing, writes KPMG Technology Sector head Trevor Aw in 'Tech Monitor UK'
Researchers in China discover a metals combination with great potential for nextgen memory-storage devices, which will use "phase-change" memory instead of Flash memory. At the University of Minnnesota, a new shape changing non-degrading tri-metal crystal is potentially of use in jet engines, space vehicles and electronics
