A Canadian effort to build one of the most innovative radio telescopes in the world will open the universe to a new dimension of scientific study. The Honourable Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science, today installed the final piece of this new radio telescope, which will act as a time machine allowing scientists to create a three-dimensional map of the universe extending deep into space and time.
A technology company in NJIT's Enterprise Development Center has developed an augmented reality system that trains emergency responders how to detect chemical, radiological and biological hazards.
A new app is being launched this week that could transform the way music is taught and played in schools.
University of Connecticut researchers have created a small electronic device that can measure blood viscosity quickly and affordably at the point of care.
The University of Copenhagen plays a central role in an ambitious Microsoft multi-million dollar investment. Today, the tech company and the university signed a long-term collaboration agreement on the development of a general-purpose, scalable quantum computer. This is a project which opens up tremendous new opportunities for science and technology.
After five years of work, EPFL's physicists, together with some 800 international researchers involved in the CERN's LHCb project, have just taken an important step by building a new detector -- a scintillating fiber tracker dubbed SciFi -- to harvest more data from the collider.
Understanding a cancer's genetics is key to selecting targeted therapies that are likely to be of the most benefit to a patient. The Ontario Institute for Cancer Research today announced a new study, called Ontario-wide Cancer TArgeted Nucleic Acid Evaluation (OCTANE). OCTANE will use next-generation genome sequencing technology to bring a unified molecular profiling approach to five Ontario cancer centers.
Georgetown University's Center for Global Health Science and Security announces the launch of a free, web-based tool that allows national leaders to calculate costs of developing the capacity to prevent, detect, and respond to public health threats.
An innovative web-based portal for accessing high performance computing services is now available to HPC centers worldwide. The Ohio Supercomputer Center launched Open OnDemand 1.0, an open-source version of the Center's online, single-point-of-entry application for HPC services. Through OnDemand, HPC clients can upload and download files, create, edit, submit and monitor jobs, run GUI applications and connect via SSH, all via a web browser, with no client software to install and configure.
