Find the latest computer technology news on topics like Nanotechnology, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Biotechnology, Graphene Technology Battery Technology, and more. Learn about the latest research from top universities including MIT, Cal Tech and Yale and also Karlsruhe Tech and Vienna Tech.

The latest advances in artificial intelligence systems like facial or speech recognition are the result of neural networks, densely interconnected meshes made up of simple information processors. Researchers have developed a novel type of information processor that could allow more intelligent devices to emulate the processing power of the human brain.

Engineers have been working for years to develop microprocessors that are more efficient and use less energy. They’re now at a new milestone, with a chip that uses quantum computing to perform billions of calculations every second while still running in the same program as the current fastest microprocessors.

With data breaches wreaking havoc upon Fortune 100 companies, ruining the reputations of top executives, and forcing historical educational institutions to close their doors, securing personal information has never been more crucial. A lot of security tools are not effective and some are dangerous. Now, a team of cybersecurity researchers has come up with an efficient and secure method to shield information from hackers.

Recent research has revealed that disorganization rather than cost is the driving factor in the inadvertent IT disposal of equipment, which is accelerating the ever-growing problem of e-waste. Apple has also added an OtterPilot function to its Siri virtual assistant, which can automate the entry of CRM data and also transcribes meetings for managing customer relationships.
