Mix in a little bit of licensed LTE, and everyone wins
Researchers fabricate a photovoltaic device with hundreds of organic nanowires connected to nanoelectrodes
But don't expect these robots to steer themselves through the body any time soon

Researchers have integrated sensors, electronics, and microfluidics into threads that can be sutured through multiple layers of tissue to gather diagnostic data in real time.
Cloud-computing services deliver AI to the rest of us
It's not working yet in the United States, so why not move autonomous delivery to the U.K. and hope for better luck?
Kimpton Hotels, a boutique hotel brand that includes 62 properties across the United States, said today it is investigating reports of a credit card breach at multiple locations.
We spend our lives surrounded by high-tech materials and chemicals that make our batteries, solar cells and mobile phones work. But developing new technologies requires time-consuming, expensive and even dangerous experiments. Luckily we now have a secret weapon that allows us to save time, money and risk by avoiding some of these experiments: computers. Thanks to Moore’s law and a number of developments in physics, chemistry, computer science and mathematics over the past 50 years... read more
Donald J. Trump has repeatedly bashed Sen. Hillary Clinton for handling classified documents on her private email server, even going so far as to suggest that anyone who is so lax with email security isn’t fit to become president. But a closer look at the Web sites for each candidate shows that in contrast to hillaryclinton.com, donaldjtrump.com has failed to take full advantage of a free and open email security technology designed to stymie email spoofing and phishing attacks.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation, bunnie Huang, and Mathew Green say the Digital Millennium Copyright Act's onerous copyright rules
A team of physicists at the University of Texas at Austin says it has had the first-ever glimpse into an atomically thin new semiconducting material.
For the purpose of this post, I'd like to suspend moral and ethical considerations for a moment — let’s call this a fun thought experiment. As we enter Olympics season, I find myself thinking about what you might call the "unlimited-class” Olympics or the "anything goes" Olympics — where genetic manipulation, drugs, robotic prostheses, and AI are not only allowed but encouraged. This post is a quick look at what this might look like. And, finally, after... read more
What if it took you four hours a day to cook all your meals because, in addition to cooking, you also had to search for firewood? What if you could only work and study during the day because you had no light at night? What if when you went to the emergency room after injuring yourself, you were turned away because there was no electricity? We live in a world where 1.3 billion people still... read more
JVC and Sony transformed the video recording technology pioneered by Ampex into a major industry
Languages like Go, Julia, R, Scala, and even Python are riding the number-crunching wave
The power of deep neural networks has sparked renewed interest in reinforcement learning, with applications to games, robotics, and beyond.
Project Foghorn is one of those straight-from-science-fiction concepts we've come to expect from Alphabet, the sprawling conglomerate formerly known as Google.
Researchers at Yale University have achieved a 20-fold increase in quantum bit lifetime.
A new algorithm promises to make the surfaces of a wide range of materials look a lot more realistic.
Tesla says it will develop its next-gen self-driving software in-house
A motorized skateboard plus a machine-learning algorithm help infants explore the world and form valuable brain connections
C is No. 1, but big data is still the big winner
Open development and sharing of software gained widespread acceptance 15 years ago, and the practice is accelerating.
This could be the first robot ever to do the worm
Apple's legal battle over encryption dominated headlines earlier this year, but another tech giant is fighting a quieter legal war over user privacy: Microsoft. It won a major victory last week, when the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit sided with the company, ruling that a U.S. warrant could not be used to force Microsoft to turn over email data stored in an Irish data center.
The Stanford Artificial Intelligence Outreach Summer allows high school girls to hear lectures and conduct research with faculty in Stanford's Artificial Intelligence Lab.
