Surviving the 'Most Explosive Era of Infrastructure Expansion in Human History'



Surviving the 'Most Explosive Era of Infrastructure Expansion in Human History'

 Environment
A team of scientists call attention to nine issues that must be considered if there is to be any hope of limiting the environmental impacts of the ongoing expansion of new roads, road improvements, energy projects, and more now underway or 'coming soon' in countries all around the world.

Google Has Developed an Internet Lie Detector



Google Has Developed an Internet Lie Detector

 Artificial Intelligence
Google researchers have created a system that attempts to rank websites based on their factual accuracy, rather than their popularity—essentially a lie detector for the Internet.

Researchers Create the First-Ever Quantum Device That Finds and Corrects Its Own Errors



Researchers Create the First-Ever Quantum Device That Finds and Corrects Its Own Errors

Quantum Computers
The promise of quantum computers has a big obstacle to overcome—the environments of the devices easily introduce error to the system. Now researchers have created a small quantum computing array that for the first time performs with a Sudoku-like error correction method that might pave the way toward practical devices. The team behind the breakthrough have also just joined Google, to further their research.

Researchers Create Nano Ink That Lets Anyone Draw Sensors Onto Almost Anything



Researchers Create Nano Ink That Lets Anyone Draw Sensors Onto Almost Anything

 Nanotechnology
A new simple tool developed by nanoengineers is opening the door to an era when anyone will be able to build sensors, anywhere, including physicians in the clinic, patients in their home and soldiers in the field. They filled off-the-shelf ballpoint pens with special inks and were able to draw sensors to measure glucose directly on the skin and sensors to measure pollution on leaves.

Researchers Create A Simulated Mouse Brain in a Virtual Mouse Body



Researchers Create A Simulated Mouse Brain in a Virtual Mouse Body

 Neuroscience
Neurorobotics engineers from the Human Brain Project have recently taken the first steps towards building a "virtual mouse" by placing a simplified computer model of the mouse brain into a virtual mouse body. This new kind of tool will be made available to scientists worldwide.

Photo of Light As Both Wave and Particle Taken for the First Time



Photo of Light As Both Wave and Particle Taken for the First Time

 Quantum Mechanics
Light behaves both as a particle and as a wave. Since the days of Einstein, scientists have been trying to directly observe both of these aspects of light at the same time. Now, scientists have succeeded in capturing the first-ever snapshot of this dual behavior.

Relaxing Higgs Could Explain Absence of Antimatter



Relaxing Higgs Could Explain Absence of Antimatter

Physics
Most of the laws of nature treat particles and antiparticles equally, but stars and planets are made of particles, or matter, and not antiparticles, or antimatter. That asymmetry, which favors matter to a very small degree, has puzzled scientists for many years. Physicists offer a possible solution to the mystery of the origin of matter in the universe.
