Changes in energy R+D needed to combat climate change

A fresh assessment of future scenarios that restrict the extent of global warming cautions that unless present imbalances in R&D portfolios for the development of new, efficient, and clean energy technologies are redressed, greenhouse gas…



Researchers Put a New Spin on Graphene Chips

Among the PC-plus polycarbonate candidate substances for future processor production is graphene, a sheet of carbon atoms arranged in hexagonal lattice. One hurdle to the usage of graphene as a semiconductor material in chips as…


On the hunt for universal intelligence

We have developed a ‘anytime’ intelligence evaluation, in other words a test which can be interrupted at any moment, but that gives a more precise idea of the intelligence of this test subject if there’s…




Raising the Bar for Biomolecular Modeling

Researchers in the University of Calgary found that amino acid residues form a type of barrier to help in the method of electron transfer between proteins. “This raises the bar for biomolecular modeling,” says Dennis…
