Computer scientists study how animals initiate locomotion
Scientists from Plymouth University are beginning to develop computer models of tadpole brains as part of a £1.3 million project to understand how the brain makes the decision to initiate motion. A collaborative project, funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), will see the Plymouth team working in conjunction with biologists at the University of Bristol and the University of St Andrews to understand and build computer models of how sensory signals are interpreted by the brain and lead to the initiation of locomotion.

A quantum leap for quantum computing
19 November 2013 A University of Sydney researcher's proposal has led to a new world record for the largest quantum 'circuit board' ever produced - an essential component for a quantum computer made of laser light. The international collaboration with the University of Tokyo and the Australian National University has seen the largest number of quantum systems brought together in a single component jump from 14 to 10,000.

New milestone could help magnets end era of computer transistors
New milestone could help magnets end era of computer transistors
New work by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, could soon transform the building blocks of modern computing by making nanomagnetic switches a viable replacement for the conventional transistors found in nearly every computer. Semiconductor-based transistors, the on-off switches that direct the flow of electricity and form a computer's nervous system, have been consuming greater chunks of power at increasingly hotter temperatures as processing speeds grow.

New Study Decodes Brain’s Process for Decision Making
AUSTIN, Texas — When faced with a choice, the brain retrieves specific traces of memories, rather than a generalized overview of past experiences, from its mental Rolodex, according to new brain-imaging research from The University of Texas at Austin. Led by Michael Mack, a postdoctoral researcher in the departments of psychology and neuroscience, the study is the first to combine computer simulations with brain-imaging data to compare two different types of decision-making models.

Researchers work to secure next generation chip-card payment technology
Current chip technology used for purchasing items via credit and debit cards in shops was developed in the mid-1990s. † EMVCo, the standard body which manages, maintains and advances EMV Specifications, is in the process of designing the next generation payment technology to meet long-term industry requirements.

Doctor, doctor: Why the job market for married couples in medicine works well
New study in the growing 'market design' field of economics explains how a job-market algorithm helps land couples in the same locations. Since World War II, women have entered the American workforce in greater numbers than ever before. For married couples, this presents a wrinkle, since it can be hard for both partners to find a desirable job in the same locale.

Mobile phone use may pose significant security risks for companies
New research suggests that companies are leaving themselves open to potentially serious security and legal risks by employees' improper use of corporate mobile devices. Experts from the University of Glasgow looked at a sample of mobile phones returned by the employees from one Fortune 500 company and found that they were able to retrieve large amounts of sensitive corporate and personal information.

Solving the Internet capacity crunch: first demonstration of a multicore fibre network
With optical fibre networks gradually approaching their theoretical capacity limits, new types of fibres such as multicore fibres have been at the focus of worldwide research to overcome critical capacity barriers, which threaten the evolution of the Internet. The University of Bristol in collaboration with the National Institute of Information and Technology (NICT) have demonstrated successfully for the first time a multicore fibre-based network, which will form the foundation for the future Internet infrastructure.

Nobel-winning Higgs discovery has ties to scientists from UChicago, Fermilab and Argonne
The award of the 2013 Nobel Prize in physics specifically honors the work of theorists Peter Higgs and François Englert, who helped predict the existence of the Higgs boson. But the discovery of the particle in 2012 also depended on contributions by thousands of scientists around the world, including many with deep roots in the University of Chicago research community.

In quantum computing, light may lead the way
Light might be able to play a bigger, more versatile role in the future of quantum computing, according to new research by Yale University scientists. A team of Yale physicists has coaxed an unprecedented number of light particles, or photons, to behave quantum mechanically, or to assume more than one state simultaneously, such as "alive" and "dead." In this case, the light is in the form of trapped microwave photons.

On the Horizon: A Quantum Internet
On the Horizon: A Quantum Internet
A team of scientists in Innsbruck, Austria, made an important step toward distributed quantum computing with cavities linking remote atom-based registers. They demonstrated precise control of the coupling of each of two trapped ions to the mode of an optical resonator. A key goal in quantum computing is the demonstration of a quantum network, that is, a framework for distribution and remote processing of quantum information.

Computer Scientists Develop New Approach to Sort Cells Up to 38 Times Faster
A team of engineers led by computer scientists at the University of California, San Diego, has developed a new approach that marries computer vision and hardware optimization to sort cells up to 38 times faster than is currently possible. The approach could be used for clinical diagnostics, stem cell characterization and other applications.

Matching eyes to math for translucent images
Matching eyes to math for translucent images
The differences are subtle, but marble, left, scatters light beneath its surface differently than jade, right, in these computer-generated images based on a model of the same statue. Whether it's a rare jade figurine or an ice sculpture, how light passes through a translucent surface is key to its appearance, and humans are sensitive to subtle differences in the result.

Scientists Help Tame Tidal Wave of Genomic Data Using SDSC’s Trestles
Sequencing the DNA of an organism, whether human, plant, or jellyfish, has become a straightforward task, but assembling the information gathered into something coherent remains a massive data challenge. Researchers using computational resources at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego, have created a faster and more effective way to assemble genomic information, while increasing performance.

On the Road to Fault-Tolerant Quantum Computing
Reliable quantum computing would make it possible to solve certain types of extremely complex technological problems millions of times faster than today's most powerful supercomputers. Other types of problems that quantum computing could tackle would not even be feasible with today's fastest machines.

Detecting program-tampering in the cloud
A new version of 'zero-knowledge proofs' allows cloud customers to verify the proper execution of their software with a single packet of data. For small and midsize organizations, the outsourcing of demanding computational tasks to the cloud - huge banks of computers accessible over the Internet - can be much more cost-effective than buying their own hardware.

Precomputing speeds up cloth imaging
Precomputing speeds up cloth imaging
Creating a computer graphic model of a uniform material like woven cloth or finished wood can be done by modeling a small volume, like one yarn crossing, and repeating it over and over, perhaps with minor modifications for color or brightness. But the final "rendering" step, where the computer creates an image of the model, can require far too much calculating for practical use.

’Zero knowledge’ may answer computer security question
In the age of the Internet, it's getting harder and harder to keep secrets. When you type in your password, there's no telling who might be watching it go by. New research at Cornell may offer a pathway to more secure. The answer is to not send sensitive information at all. Rafael Pass, associate professor of computer science, has developed a new protocol, or set of rules, to create what computer scientists call a "zero knowledge proof." "I think zero knowledge proofs are one of the most amazing notions in computer science," Pass said.
