Push-button interfaces are everywhere—microwaves, toasters, coffee makers, thermostats, printers, copiers, checkout terminals, kiosks, and remote controls. And while they afford most of us great convenience, they are largely inaccessible to people who are visually-impaired.

In the realm of computing pioneers, Dame Stephanie "Steve" Shirley is one of the most celebrated, not only for building a $3 billion tech empire in 1960s England, but for doing it with an all-female, work-from-home staff of professionally qualified women who had left the work force after marrying and having children.

The AI interviewer is so sophisticated that it will read your facial features, voice intonation, and word choices. Then it rates your personality on the Big Five Personality Traits scale: agreeableness, extroversion, neuroticism, openness, and conscientiousness. Your next job offer could depend on it.

Fifteen billion barrels of oil were burned worldwide last year—spewing a toxic mix of chemical gases, particulates, and petroleum hydrocarbons into the air, pollution that found its way into the cells of human bodies, the upper atmosphere, and all ecosystems and biomes in between. The planet is gasping—and so are we.

As smart cities fast become the norm, experts search for even better ways to fight big-city problems like reducing traffic and pollution. To this end, researchers from the University of Messina have studied how to advance the design and development of smart-mobility services using an open source platform called FIWARE.

While Einstein's famous equation E = MC2 accounts for a lot of powerful forces like gravity, solar power, and nuclear energy, it can't explain singularities—the point at which things become infinitely big or small—like black holes (small) and the Big Bang (big). When it comes to classical space-time, the laws of quantum physics just don't apply. Now, thanks to supercomputers, researchers might be able to reconcile the inconsistencies.

Scientists made space exploration history on 12 November 2014 when, for the first time, a space probe landed on a comet. The speeding target was Churyumov-Gerasimenko—a dirty cosmic snowball slightly bigger than Mount Fuji. The space probe was the Philae lander—part of the European Space Agency's Rosetta program. But not everything went as planned.
There are no results for this search.
