Control the Cursor With Power of Thought
Posted on April 07, 2011 at 08:43:05 am
The act of mind reading is something usually reserved for science-fiction movies but researchers in America have used a technique, usually associated with identifying epilepsy, for the first time to show that a computer can listen to our thoughts
Device Enables Computer to Identify Whether User Is Male or Female
Posted on April 07, 2011 at 08:28:46 am
Researchers have developed a system that analyses a video signal in real time and calculates the gender of the faces pictured in the images. This way, a computer can determine whether the faces pictured in the images or videos belong to a man or a woman.
Calculations With Record 14 Quantum Bits
Posted on April 01, 2011 at 04:09:49 pm
Quantum physicists from the University of Innsbruck have set another world record: They have achieved controlled entanglement of 14 quantum bits (qubits) and, thus, realized the largest quantum register that has ever been produced

Researchers have developed a new switching device that takes quantum communication to a new level. The device is a practical step toward creating a network that takes advantage of the mysterious and powerful world of quantum mechanics.
New Kinds of Superconductivity?
Posted on March 04, 2011 at 09:24:08 am
Physicists have for the first time caused a gas of atoms to exhibit an important quantum phenomenon known as spin-orbit coupling
Black Holes: A Model for Superconductors?
Posted on March 03, 2011 at 08:34:48 am
Black holes are some of the heaviest objects in the universe. Electrons are some of the lightest. Now physicists have shown how charged black holes can be used to model the behavior of interacting electrons in unconventional superconductors.
