algorithmSuper tiny drones will be made with computer chips that are 100 times more energy efficient

Engineers have worked made drones the size of a bumblebee and loaded them with even tinier sensors and cameras. Almost every part of a drone has been made smaller, except for the brains of the entire operation — the computer …

3dNew 3-D carbon nanotube chip combines computing and data storage

Instead of relying on silicon-based devices, a new 3D chip uses carbon nanotubes, which are sheets of 2-D graphene formed into nanocylinders, and resistive random-access memory (RRAM) cells, a type of nonvolatile memory that operates by changing the resistance of …

computer architectureHPE 160 terabyte RAM computer is beginning of a planned transformation of computing

HPE announced that it has created the largest single-memory computing system the world has ever seen, capable of holding 160 terabytes of data. In 2014, HPE introduced The Machine research project—the largest and most complex research project in our company’s …

adiabatic quantum computer4DS Memristor achieves technical milestone of memory cells denser than 3D flash with commerciallization in the 2019 timeframe

4DS has demonstrated Interface Switching ReRAM cells at a 40 nanometer geometry, representing significant progress in scalability and yield. This 40nm geometry, demonstrated by 4DS, is smaller than the latest generation of 3D Flash – the most dominant non-volatile memory …

brainNanocrystalline diamonds grown on a diamond base enables anvil with 264 gigapascal of pressure and target is 1 terapascal which is the pressure at the center of Saturn

University of Alabama at Birmingham researchers will use pressures greater than those found at the center of the Earth to potentially create as yet unknown new materials. In the natural world, such immense forces deep underground can turn carbon into …

artificial intelligenceJuno successfully executed 36 orbital flybys of Jupiter today

NASA’s Juno mission successfully executed its first of 36 orbital flybys of Jupiter today. The time of closest approach with the gas-giant world was 6:44 a.m. PDT (9:44 a.m. EDT, 13:44 UTC) when Juno passed about 2,600 miles (4,200 kilometers) …
