‘Space-time cloak’ to conceal events revealed in new study
‘Space-time cloak' to conceal events revealed in new study Cloak allows objects to move undetected, according to a paper in the Journal of Optics - News release Scientists have developed a recipe for manipulating the speed of light as it passes over an object, making it theoretically possible to ‘cloak‘ the object's movement so that an observer doesn't notice, according to a paper in the Journal of Optics .

New search method tracks down influential ideas
New search method tracks down influential ideas
Princeton computer scientists have developed a new way of tracing the origins and spread of ideas, a technique that could make it easier to gauge the influence of notable scholarly papers, buzz-generating news stories and other information sources. The method relies on computer algorithms to analyze how language morphs over time within a group of documents - whether they are research papers on quantum physics or blog posts about politics - and to determine which documents were the most influential.

Researchers improve wireless location-detection systems
Researchers improve wireless location-detection systems
In a pair of papers appearing in October in the journal IEEE Transactions on Information Theory , MIT researchers present a new theory that establishes fundamental limits on the accuracy of wireless location detection. By demonstrating which aspects of wireless signals convey the most reliable location information, the work points the way toward better location-detection algorithms.

Neurons: Faster than thought and able to multiply
Scientists discover new properties of nerve cells through computing - and contemplation Freiburg, 10.09.2010 Using computer simulations of brain-like networks, researchers from Germany and Japan have discovered why nerve cells transmit information through small electrical pulses. Not only allows this the brain to process information much faster than previously thought: single neurons are already able to multiply, opening the door to more complex forms of computing.

Shape-shifting robots
Shape-shifting robots
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. By combining origami and electrical engineering, researchers at MIT and Harvard are working to develop the ultimate reconfigurable robot - one that can turn into absolutely anything. The researchers have developed algorithms that, given a three-dimensional shape, can determine how to reproduce it by folding a sheet of semi-rigid material with a distinctive pattern of flexible creases.

Quantum networds advance with entanglement of photons, solid-state qubits
A team of Harvard physicists led by Mikhail D. Lukin has achieved the first-ever quantum entanglement of photons and solid-state materials. The work marks a key advance toward practical quantum networks, as the first experimental demonstration of a means by which solid-state quantum bits, or "qubits," can communicate with one another over long distances.

'The friend of my enemy is my enemy': Virtual universe study proves 80 year old theory on how humans interact
’The friend of my enemy is my enemy’: Virtual universe study proves 80 year old theory on how humans interact
A new study analysing interactions between players in a virtual universe game has for the first time provided large-scale evidence to prove an 80 year old psychological theory called Structural Balance Theory. The research, published today in PNAS , shows that individuals tend to avoid stress-causing relationships when they develop a society, resulting in more stable social networks.

Scientists Use Computer Algorithms to Develop New Flu Vaccines
July 09, 2010 — Coral Gables — Every year, hundreds of thousands of people die from influenza all over the world. Defeating the illness is challenging because the virus evolves by frequent changes of its genetic code, making it difficult for scientists to manufacture effective vaccines for the seasonal flu in a timely manner.

Possible new class of supernovae puts calcium in your bones
BERKELEY — In the past decade, robotic telescopes have turned astronomers' attention to scads of strange exploding stars, one-offs that may or may not point to new and unusual physics. But supernova (SN) 2005E, discovered five years ago by the University of California, Berkeley's Katzman Automatic Imaging Telescope (KAIT), is one of eight known "calcium-rich supernovae" that seem to stand out as horses of a different color.

Health impacts of mobile phone use to be explored in huge new study
A new decades-long study launches today to investigate whether there is a link between the use of mobile phones and long-term health problems such as cancer. The cohort study on mobile communications (COSMOS) forms part of the Mobile Telecommunications and Health Research (MTHR) Programme. The international study will run for 20-30 years and will follow the health of at least 250,000 participants aged 18-69 in five European countries.

Robotic therapy helps stroke patients regain function
Robotic therapy helps stroke patients regain function
A patient uses a robotic therapy device invented at MIT. The robotic joystick guides the patient's arm as he tries to move the robot handle toward a moving or stationary target shown on the computer monitor. If the person starts moving in the wrong direction or does not move, the robotic arm gently nudges his arm in the right direction.

Drug discovery, Netflix style?
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. ? Ranking algorithms are one of the hottest topics in computer science: they‘re what determines the order of Google's search results and which movies and books Netflix and Amazon recommend to their customers. Now researchers at MIT and Harvard Medical School have shown that ranking algorithms could find an important application in a somewhat surprising field: drug development.
