The Internet of Things (IoT) is forcing telecom providers, enterprises and cloud providers to change their business models not to just thrive, but survive. Although not new, advances in interest, infrastructure and information have put IoT in a position to fundamentally change how business is done.
An anti-aging strategy that works in mice is about to be tested in humans
If you think technologies from Star Trek seem far-fetched, think again. Many of the devices from the acclaimed television series are slowly becoming a reality. While we may not be teleporting people from starships to a planet’s surface anytime soon, we are getting closer to developing other tools essential for future space travel endeavours.
This past week, 37 participants from 19 Member States attended a technical meeting on the Status and Evaluation of Severe Accident Simulation Codes for Water Cooled Reactors (WCRs).

Lasers bounced off satellites replicate classic “delayed choice” experiment
Ultrathin films of a semiconductor that emits and detects light can be stacked on top of silicon wafers, researchers report in a study that could help bring optical communication onto silicon chips.
You’ve probably read about how the Universe is expanding, and has been expanding since the beginning of time. Over the course of 13.8 billion years or so, it’s stretched from the size of a billionth of a proton to the vast, unknowable expanse it is today. In fact, recent research suggests that it’s actually expanding faster than our current laws of physics can explain, and that’s kind of a problem.
New platform holds potential for reversing the most common class of disease-associated DNA point mutations
Though expensive now, prices could get cheaper for more common diseases.
Dark matter: The mystery substance physics still can’t identify that makes up the majority of our universe
Cosmologists are heading back to their chalkboards as the experiments designed to figure out what this unknown 84 percent of our universe actually is come up empty.
The blueprint for everything.
Physicists theorize that a new âtraversableâ kind of wormhole could resolve a baffling paradox and rescue information that falls into black holes.
A group of astronomers from the universities of Groningen, Naples and Bonn has developed a method that finds gravitational lenses in enormous piles of observations. The method is based on the same artificial intelligence algorithm that Google, Facebook and Tesla have been using in the last years. The researchers published their method and 56 new gravitational lens candidates in the November issue of Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.
A new MIT study finds that larger cities are more resilient to technological unemployment.
Don’t throw out your CPUs just yet, but there may be a new way to run your neural networks.
D-Wave system shows quantum computers can learn to detect particle signatures in mountains of data, but doesn’t outpace conventional methods — yet
Boron nitride nanotubes can withstand temperatures up to 900 degrees Celsius.
Mitonuclear conflict â a struggle between the genes in a cellâs nucleus and its mitochondria â might sometimes split species in two.

It’s a small world after all – and now science has explained why. A study conducted by the University of Leicester and KU Leuven, Belgium, examined how small worlds emerge spontaneously in all kinds of networks, including neuronal and social networks, giving rise to the well-known phenomenon of “six degrees of separation”.
And she isn’t the only one.
California probably will change the kinds of cars on the road in the United States. But it’s going to take a while. Find out why at HowStuffWorks.
How Chinese scientists used a supercomputer to solve the ancient puzzle called the Three Body Problem
Like the endlessly repeating patterns of chaos theory, the new solutions discovered by the Chinese researchers make for elaborate and weirdly beautiful images when they are plotted in two dimensions
The Food and Drug Administration has approved a promising new treatment called CAR-T for a particularly deadly form of cancer.
Woebot combines cognitive behavior therapy with advances in natural language to create a virtual counselor.
If brain imaging could be compared to Google Earth, neuroscientists would already have a pretty good “satellite view” of the brain, and a great “street view” of neuron details. But navigating how the brain computes is arguably where the action is, and neuroscience’s “navigational map view” has been a bit meager.
Floating food could be the next culinary craze thanks to a new invention that levitates, transports and delivers food and drink directly onto your tongue.
The next time you come across a knotted jumble of rope or wire or yarn, ponder this: The natural tendency for things to tangle may help explain the three-dimensional nature of the universe and how it formed.
Researchers have experimentally probed topological order and its breakdown. The work could open the way for new approaches to quantum computation.
Extraordinary event has been ‘seen’ for the first time, in both gravitational waves and light – ending decades-old debate about where gold comes from
NASA’s new X3 thruster, developed by researchers at the University of Michigan in collaboration with the US Air Force, NASA, broke records in a recent test.
Oil prices are poised to crash to just $10 per barrel over the next six to eight years as alternative energy fuels continue to attract more and more investors, Chris Watling, chief executive of Longview Economics, told CNBC on Friday.
With much of the U.S. commonwealth’s cellular service and electrical grid down since Hurricane Maria, the parent company of tech giant Google could help restore wireless communication to 3.4 million residents
A hint that neutrinos behave differently than antineutrinos suggests an answer to one the biggest questions in physics.

Online shopping giant eBay has teamed up with specialist retailer Saatchi Art to create an experimental shopping experience.
When looking in the obvious places yielded no results, theorists proposed a novel way to look for dark matter by repurposing existing neutrino experiments.
The colonization of Saturn’s moons could open us up to a wealth of harvestable raw materials that could be used in future fusion reactors. While this is a literal moonshot, beginning to think about how it is possible may eventually lead to successful missions.
The flexible photovoltaics, made by researchers in South Korea, could power wearable electronics. It is thin enough to wrap around a pencil but is as efficient and durable as the existing thicker ones.
