Researchers at the University of York have found no evidence to support the theory that video games make players more violent.
A method of securely communicating between multiple quantum devices has been developed by a UCL-led team of scientists, bringing forward the reality of a large-scale, un- hackable quantum network.
A new method to predict tipping points -- the moment at which sudden change occurs in complex networked systems -- may offer insights that prevent colony collapse disorder (CCD), a phenomenon in which the majority of worker bees in a colony disappear, threatening the agricultural economy at a global level.
Software-defined networking can make the Internet scalable, manageable, and adaptable at an industry-grade level, according to a recent research study led by scientists from the Madrid research institute IMDEA Networks.
Blockchain technology can help improve old models of data management and bring benefits to learners and educational institutions in the EU -- if policymakers are well prepared to embrace the change.
Ophthalmologists' use of electronic health records (EHR) systems for storing and accessing patients' medical histories more than doubled between 2006 and 2016, while their perceptions of financial and clinical productivity following EHR implementation declined, a study published today in JAMA Ophthalmology shows.
In a new paper appearing in IEEE Access, members of the Camera Culture group at MIT's Media Lab present a new approach to time-of-flight imaging that increases its depth resolution 1,000-fold. That's the type of resolution that could make self-driving cars practical.
With children spending increasing amounts of time on screen-based devices, there is a common perception that technology is taking over their lives, to the detriment and exclusion of other activities. However, new Oxford University research has revealed that as digital pasttimes have become intertwined with daily life, children have adapted their behaviours to include their devices. Much like adults, they are able to multi-task and also do all the things that they would do anyway.
Robots have a lot to learn about humans, including how to respect their personal space. Scientists at the National University of San Juan, Argentina are giving mobile robots a crash course in avoiding collisions with humans. Using impedance control, the researchers aimed to regulate the social dynamics between the robot's movements and the interactions of the robot's environment.
Libratus, an artificial intelligence that defeated four top professional poker players in no-limit Texas Hold'em, uses a three-pronged approach to master a game with more decision points than atoms in the universe, researchers at Carnegie Mellon University report. In a paper published online today by the journal Science, they explain how their AI broke the game into computationally manageable parts and fixed potential weaknesses in its strategy during the competition.
