Intel’s 48-core Single-chip Cloud Computer (SCC) processor (Credit: Intel) Intel on Wednesday demonstrated a fully programmable 48-core processor it thinks will pave the way for massive data computers powerful enough to do more of what humans can. (H/T Sander Olson) …

DNAfinFETs Could be Smaller and at least Five Times Faster than silicon Transistors

Researchers are making progress in developing new types of transistors, called finFETs, which use a finlike structure instead of the conventional flat design, possibly enabling engineers to create faster and more compact circuits and computer chips. The fins are made …

biomarkersGene therapy appears safe to regenerate gum tissue

The figures show microcomputed tomographic images of regenerated periodontium (tooth supporting structures) following delivery of PDGF genes. Scientists at the University of Michigan have developed a method of gene delivery that appears safe for regenerating tooth-supporting gum tissue—a discovery that …
