The next generation of cyberattacks will be more sophisticated, more difficult to detect and more capable of wreaking untold damage on the nation’s computer systems. So, the DoD has given a $3 million grant to a team of computer scientists to develop software that can hunt down a new kind of vulnerability nearly impossible to find with today’s technology. The team is tasked with creating an analyzer that can thwart algorithmic attacks.

COMSOL 5.1 is a major upgrade that delivers new and enhanced functionality across all products, including COMSOL Multiphysics and the Application Builder and COMSOL Server, as well as the add-on modules. Among the significant updates are enhancements to numerous core modeling and simulation capabilities and an improved user experience for application design.
This group photo of the original Mercury astronauts was taken in June 1963 at the Manned Spacecraft Center (MSC), now Johnson Space Center, in Houston, TX. Now known as the "Original Seven," the astronauts are, left-to-right: Cooper, Schirra, Shepard, Grissom, Glenn, Slayton and Carpenter.
Quantum Cryptography at the Speed of Light: First All-photonic Repeaters enable Quantum TeleportationApril 16, 2015 12:53 pm | by Marit Mitchell, University of Toronto | News | Comments
Imagine having your MRI results sent directly to your phone, with no concern over the security of your private health data. Or knowing your financial information was safe on a server halfway around the world. Or sending highly sensitive business correspondence, without worrying that it would fall into the wrong hands.
Simply declaring a region as a nature protection area is not enough, regular monitoring of its ecological condition is also necessary. New methods are being developed to monitor Europe’s nature protection areas from the air. Short laser pulses are sent to the ground, and information on the status of the habitat can be deduced from the reflected light signals using elaborate computer algorithms.
A predictive model using machine learning algorithms is able to predict with 75 percent accuracy how many asthma-related emergency room visits a hospital could expect on a given day. Twitter users who post information about their personal health online might be considered by some to be "over-sharers," but new research suggests that health-related tweets may have the potential to be helpful for hospitals.
This illustration depicts a three-dimensional (3-D) computer-generated image of a number of rod-shaped, drug-resistant Shigella bacteria. The artistic recreation was based upon scanning electron micrographic imagery. Note that the exterior of the Shigella bacterium is fimbriated, covered by numerous thin, hair-like projections, imparting a furry appearance.
Ryft One is an open platform to analyze streaming, historical, unstructured, and multi-structured data in real-time. It is a commercial 1U platform capable of providing fast and actionable business insights by analyzing both historical and streaming data at an unprecedented 10 Gigabytes/second or faster.
ISC High Performance has extended the deadline to apply for the ISC Student Volunteer Program. The new deadline is April 30, 2015. More volunteers are needed this year, as the conference will be hosting a larger number of sessions than in previous years, and the student volunteer program is critical in helping to run the conference as smoothly as possible.
While our understanding of how the aurora's shimmering curtains of color are formed, scientists have struggled to explain the black patches between the bright beams. Now Swedish and British scientists have discovered what happens at the heart of these so-called "black aurora."
Technological advances are enabling scientists to sequence the genomes of cancer tumors, revealing a detailed portrait of genetic mutations that drive these diseases. But genomic studies are only one piece of the puzzle that is precision medicine. In order to realize the promise of this field, there needs to be an increased focus on creating robust clinical databases.
Simply declaring a region as a nature protection area is not enough, regular monitoring of its ecological condition is also necessary. New methods are being developed to monitor Europe’s vast number of nature protection areas from the air. Short laser pulses are sent to the ground, and information on the status of the habitat can be deduced from the reflected light signals using elaborate computer algorithms.
Cybersecurity strategist George M. Schu says the emerging Internet of Things (IoT) will expose the global aviation industry to vulnerabilities at a level never before seen and will have a transformative impact on the industry.
This multitemporal Sentinel-1A radar image shows the Aral Sea, located on the border between Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan in Central Asia. The Aral Sea is a striking example of humankind’s impact on the environment and natural resources.
Benchling is a cloud-based platform that provides a suite of tools for life science - centered around a digital laboratory notebook - that accelerates R&D by tracking experiment details, facilitating collaboration, and streamlining data analysis.
Research using cutting edge computer analysis reveals that despite mutating, Ebola hasn’t evolved to become deadlier since the first outbreak 40 years ago.
