Santa has never been stuck up the chimney says Warwick quantum physicist
Father Christmas may use 'quantum tunnelling' to get in and out of our homes at Christmas He may also have mastered quantum interference and be employing quantum computing to help him meet his annual global delivery target A researcher at the University of Warwick is challenging the theory that 'Santa got stuck up the chimney' by suggesting that he uses 'quantum tunnelling' to get himself in and out of our homes.

New robots can see into their future
UC Berkeley researchers have developed a robotic learning technology that enables robots to imagine the future of their actions so they can figure out how to manipulate objects they have never encountered before. In the future, this technology could help self-driving cars anticipate future events on the road and produce more intelligent robotic assistants in homes, but the initial prototype focuses on learning simple manual skills entirely from autonomous play.

Chasing complexity
In his junior year of high school, Ryan Williams transferred from the public school in his hometown of Florette, Alabama - "essentially a courthouse and a couple gas stations," as he describes it - to the Alabama School of Math and Science in Mobile. Although he had been writing computer programs since age 7 - often without the benefit of a computer to run them on - Williams had never taken a computer science class.

New way to write magnetic info could pave the way for hardware neural networks
Researchers have shown how to write any magnetic pattern desired onto nanowires, which could help computers mimic how the brain processes information. Much current computer hardware, such as hard drives, use magnetic memory devices. These rely on magnetic states - the direction microscopic magnets are pointing - to encode and read information.

New tool quantifies power imbalance between female and male characters in Hollywood movie scripts
New tool quantifies power imbalance between female and male characters in Hollywood movie scripts
At first glance, the movie "Frozen" might seem to have two strong female protagonists - Elsa, the elder princess with unruly powers over snow and ice, and her sister, Anna, who spends much of the film on a quest to save their kingdom. But the two princesses actually exert very different levels of power and control over their own destinies, according to new research from University of Washington computer scientists.

Material could bring optical communication onto silicon chips
Material could bring optical communication onto silicon chips
The huge increase in computing performance in recent decades has been achieved by squeezing ever more transistors into a tighter space on microchips. However, this downsizing has also meant packing the wiring within microprocessors ever more tightly together, leading to effects such as signal leakage between components, which can slow down communication between different parts of the chip.

Machine learning used to predict earthquakes in a lab setting
A group of researchers from the UK and the US have used machine learning techniques to successfully predict earthquakes. Although their work was performed in a laboratory setting, the experiment closely mimics real-life conditions, and the results could be used to predict the timing of a real earthquake.  This is the first time that machine learning has been used to analyse acoustic data to predict when an earthquake will occur.

Probing how Americans think about mental life
Most people don't have answers to the big questions about consciousness or the meaning of life, but they do have a way of thinking about and categorizing mental life. It comes down to three things - body, heart and mind. "Is a robot capable of experiencing guilt?” was one of the questions Stanford researchers asked to probe how people make sense of the sensations, emotions and thoughts that make up mental life.
