The Raspberry Pi project began when a few of us in Cambridge bemoaned the fall in numbers of computer science applicants and the decline in hobbyist programmers.
Refined laser technology for high-speed data transfers, developed at the University of Illinois, was shown to transmit error-free data over fiber optic networks at a blazing fast 40 gigabits per second – the fastest in the US.
Device could be used in medical imaging, collision-avoidance detectors for cars, and interactive gaming.
Computer scientists from the University of East Anglia are working to create a virtual birthing simulator that will help doctors and midwives prepare for unusual or dangerous births.
It’s a fact: Switzerland's Piz Daint is the fastest supercomputer in Europe. What’s more, it has now been named the greenest petaflop computer in the world at SC13 in Denver, Colorado (USA).
Europe is poised to launch its biggest-ever research and innovation funding package in order to take on some of society's biggest challenges such as the need for green transport and clean energy, while at the same time creating jobs.
In the Great Lakes region, birds are dying off in large numbers. Loons, gulls and other waterfowl are falling to deadly Type E botulism, a neuromuscular disease that's caused when birds eat fish infected with toxin-producing bacteria. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at this disease in an at...
