Researchers have used computer models on the Stampede2 supercomputer to replicate the dispersal of gases from the April 4, 2017 chemical weapons attack in northwest Syria. The simulations were able to capture real world conditions despite a scarcity of information. Recently, the team developed a coarse model that uses seasonal conditions as background inform […]
An algorithm-based system that identifies telltale linguistic cues in fake news stories could provide news aggregator and social media sites like Google News with a new weapon in the fight against misinformation.
Light may be the missing ingredient in making usable quantum silicon computer chips, according to researchers. The team has engineered a silicon chip that can guide single particles of light -- photons -- along optical tracks, encoding and processing quantum-bits of information known as 'qubits'.
