AI selecting best solar perovskites
A U.S. research team has used machine learning to optimize material composition and predict the design strategies and performance of perovskite solar cells. The researchers analyzed 2,000 peer-reviewed perovskite publications and collected more than 300 data points.
Vertical turbines far more efficient in large-scale wind farms
A study from Oxford Brookes University researchers has found that vertical wind turbine design is considerably more efficient than the traditional form factor in large-scale wind farms, and in a certain arrangement can increase performance by up to 15 per cent.
The Dawn of the Quantum Internet | Mashable
In a huge breakthrough, a team of researchers from Caltech, Fermilab, AT&T, Harvard, NASA, and the University of Calgary teleported quantum information over a fiber-optic network of 44 kilometres. Achieving high-fidelity quantum teleportation lays the groundwork for a functional quantum internet, which is posed to revolutionize a number of fields in technology, communications, banking, and security.

A singular mind: Roger Penrose on his Nobel Prize
Sir Roger Penrose was at school when he realised that his mind worked in an unusual way. ‘I thought, maybe when I go to university, I’ll find people who think like me,’ he tells me, at the beginning of what was to be a fascinating conversation, stretching long into the afternoon. ‘But it wasn’t like...
