Molecular electronics is a burgeoning field of research that aims to integrate single molecules as active elements in electronic devices. Obtaining a complete picture of the charge transport properties in molecular junctions ...
There's an arms race underway to develop the next generation of computers-known as "quantum" computers-and there's no guarantee that the United States is going to win. It's a positive sign that Congress is taking initial steps on legislation to accelerate development of this technology.
Algorithms power transformative technology but also present many threats to users - which raises the question of how to prevent and regulate against potential disaster. advertisement For technology users, particularly social media users, 2018 has been a year of awakening.
State of the Art Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon and the world's wealthiest man, has been publicly agonizing over a vexing problem: what to do with all his money.

Taking place as part of the International Dota 2 Championships in Vancouver, Canada, the game showed that in broader strategic thinking and collaboration, humans still remain on top.
Once upon a time, the robots were only coming to murder us. The specifics varied-maybe they were going to convert us into fuel and enslave us in gooey pods, or maybe they would simply crush our heaped skulls under tire treads. But the premise did not: Whenever a computer got too many ideas, we all died.
IBM is launching a tool which will analyse how and why algorithms make decisions in real time. The Fairness 360 Kit will also scan for signs of bias and recommend adjustments. There is increasing concern that algorithms used by both tech giants and other firms are not always fair in their decision-making.
