MIT boffins have created solar cells that can adhere to many different surfaces to provide power on the go.
Who needs Lithium?
Boffins at MIT describe new aluminum-sulfur batteries that are made entirely from abundant and inexpensive materials and can be charged in less than a minute.
Key algorithms to control "congestion" delays are "deeply unfair
A new study finds that many key algorithms designed to control "congestion" delays on computer networks "are prove deeply unfair, letting some users hog all the bandwidth while others get essentially nothing."
Well not yours on a Monday morning, obviously
MIT boffins have built AI chips that mimic synapses, but are a million times faster, and are more energy efficient than current designs.
Faster than USB or Thunderbolt
Boffins have emerged from their smoke-filled labs with a cabling system that could provide data transfer speeds multiple times faster than existing USB connections using an extremely thin polymer cable.
Sound of hacking
Scientists from MIT have developed a new AI model that can detect COVID-19 from a simple forced cough.
Coding introduced to kids badly
MIT's Mitchel Resnick and Natalie Rusk have warned that trying to teach kids programming using logic puzzles is like teaching people to write using crosswords.
It lowered the standards of the world
MIT has taken offline its highly cited dataset that trained AI systems to potentially describe people using racist, misogynistic, and other problematic terms.
Small enough for a mobile phone
MIT boffins have published a new paper that describes a new type of artificial brain synapse that offers performance improvements versus other existing versions, and which can be combined in volumes of tens of thousands on a chip that's smaller physically than a piece of confetti.
