Carbon capture has been in the news a lot recently, but what exactly is it? Never fear, we’re here to help explain this technical topic (using chocolate!).
Imagine a world where disaster rescue robots can readily change their body size and shape to adapt to different terrains and environments. We’re taking a closer look at the next five big things in science.
Artificial intelligence researchers have upped the ante and developed a program that has beaten the world’s best Heads-Up No-Limit Texas Hold’em poker players.
Our scientists have created a new way to produce the world’s strongest material.
We’ve looked at 283 Android VPN apps, investigating a wide range of security and privacy features. Alarmingly, we’ve uncovered 18 per cent of the apps failed to encrypt users’ traffic and 38 per cent injected malware or malvertising – software designed to damage or gain access to the users’ information. The very reason users install these apps – to protect their data – is the very function they are not performing.
After months of running in test-mode, the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder telescope is now gathering data at an incredible rate to give us a new look at how our universe works.
Tech companies are racing to create a new way of interacting with computers – artificial intelligence.
When we imagine the Amazon rainforest, we tend to picture a kingdom of tropical greenery – a flurry of squawks, motion and colour. In reality, it’s becoming increasingly uninhabited. We’re working to create a continuous wireless network of sensors to monitor the activity of species and better understand biodiversity loss.
New x-ray technology will bombard rock samples to help us locate gold and other metals.
