A team at NYU Tandon School of Engineering has found a way to prove the provenance of 3-D printed parts by embedding QR (Quick Response) codes in an innovative way for unique device identification. In the latest issue of Advanced Engineering Materials, the researchers describe converting QR codes into 3-D features so that that they neither compromise the part's integrity nor announce themselves to counterfeiters who have the means to reverse engineer the part.
A Rice University computer scientist and his colleagues have proposed a scalable algorithm for quantum state tomography to significantly accelerate the imposing task of validating the accuracy of quantum computers.
Researchers have developed a system using artificial intelligence that can edit the facial expressions of actors to accurately match dubbed voices, saving time and reducing costs for the film industry.
Rice University engineers develop ShareBackup, a hardware and software solution to help data centers recover from failures without slowing applications.
A new study shows that communication channels between different parts and pieces of computer software are prone to security breaches. Anyone with access to a shared computer -- co-workers, family members, or guests -- can attack or involuntarily subject it to security breaches.
New research out of the University of Waterloo has found a novel method to extend the battery life of smartphones for up to an hour each day.
The way research in quantum technology will be taken forward has been laid out in a revised roadmap for the field. Published today in the New Journal of Physics, leading European quantum researchers summarise the field's current status, and examine its challenges and goals.
A University of Houston researcher reports that 15 years after the end of the Human Genome Project, which mapped the human genetic blueprint, the project is still making news because it forever changed the way scientists work. Among the findings, the literature published by teams of scientists fared better than those published by single authors.
MIT researchers are employing novel machine-learning techniques to improve the quality of life for patients by reducing toxic chemotherapy and radiotherapy dosing for glioblastoma, the most aggressive form of brain cancer.
AUDIT is a cryptographic system aimed at improving government accountability for surveillance while still maintaining enough confidentiality for police to do their jobs. AUDIT involves a public ledger in which officials share information about data requests through so-called 'cryptographic commitments.' If the courts decide to release the data they requested, the public can be assured that the correct documents were released in full; if they decide not to, then that refusal itself is made known.
