A team of experts is helping European citizens design their digital future by giving them control over their personal information. This will help guarantee people’s rights to privacy while also enabling them to share their data for the public good.
Researchers are making great strides towards early Parkinson’s detection with a new mobile app.
A multidisciplinary research team is harnessing modern technology to provide new types of evidence on war crimes and human rights violations.
A research team is helping robot developers design machines less likely to injure the humans they work with. How? With their novel ‘safety map’.
Companion robots will improve the lives of dementia sufferers and support their caregivers, thanks to an EU-backed project.
Researchers discover 20-year-old security bugs in CPU chips, highlighting the need for safer computers.
The first 5G testbeds have been launched in two European cities, allowing industries and smart city start-ups to test 5G applications citywide.
As part of a groundbreaking supercomputer to meet the growing needs of business and science, researchers have developed a new high-performance module capable of up to 12 quadrillion calculations per second.
By implementing a next-generation network trial in Catalonia, the era of affordable internet for everybody is one step closer to becoming a reality.
Scientists have discovered thousands of huge black holes at the centre of the Milky Way.
A novel software framework will help developers better design integrated mechanisms of computation, networking and physical processes.
Computer simulated models to test infant bone strength could help manufacturers design safer car seats.
Stephen Hawking, the most famous scientist in the world, had a lot to say during his life about topics other than the Big Bang and black holes. Here’s a roundup of the British physicist’s views on everything from aliens to the greatest mystery of all time.
A new mathematical framework taking into account ‘crosstalk’ and incorporating the impact of players’ interactions in simulations of repeated social dilemmas could help better analyse cooperation dynamics within a population.
Artificial intelligence (AI) could be exploited by rogue states, terrorists and criminals, unless humanity is better prepared to defend itself against its potential malicious use, experts warn.
A team of researchers has developed the first-ever magnet-sensitive electronics that can track body movements, opening up exciting prospects for a wide range of industries.
Taking us another step closer to the computers of the future, scientists show that the transfer of quantum information from an electron spin to a photon is possible in a silicon quantum chip.
Efficiency in nature’s biomolecular processes, such as photosynthesis, is not wholly explained by conventional theory. The EU-funded PAPETS project explored quantum effects to better understand these processes, recently leading to further insights into the possibilities for quantum computation.
District heating based on renewable energy sources is becoming a preferred energy saving solution. One of the biggest challenges, however, is convincing property owners of the long-term value of retrofitting buildings to accommodate this smart solution.
The annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) has been taking place this week in Las Vegas, showcasing all kinds of weird and wonderful, conceptual and practical technology. Whilst much focus has been on new gadgets for consumer use, other, more far-reaching technological developments, such as advances in quantum computing, have also been trending.
If wearable electronics are to become commonplace, a breakthrough is required which allows them to be washable, stretchable and breathable. Using conventional inkjet techniques which are cheap, safe and environmentally friendly, researchers recently reported the successful printing of 2D material, creating integrated electronic circuits, directly onto fabrics.
By verifying a cell-based computer model that replicates the mechanics of muscle and tissue against in vitro tests, researchers have brought us a step closer to the era of personalised medicine.
An EU-funded project working with ultrafast optics, furthers control over the spatial-temporal quantum states of light, advancing quantum information science.
A consistent trend across the tech sector is the one-upmanship of increasingly high screen resolution and larger display size. Yet, the fact that the former increases faster than the latter means that manufacturers must achieve ever-higher pixel density. Large OLED microdisplays developed under the LOMID project could help solve that problem, thereby providing Europe with a competitive edge.
