A team funded by the National Science Foundation demonstrated that -- if controlled effectively - driverless cars are able to reduce stop-and-go waves that can arise in normal traffic patterns
Mathematics is about numbers, shapes, symmetry, chance, change and more. Much more! Math is not only the most rigorous mental discipline ever invented, it's among the richest, most wide-ranging and most useful. Mathematics is also central to the information revolution. Downloadable music files, DVD movies, digital special effects and secure online credit card transactions, essentially any software application you can think of, owes its existence not just to computers, but to the mathematical algorithms that run on computers.
San Diego Supercomputer Center's chief data science officer Ilkay Altintas describes a National Science Foundation-funded project that uses data-driven knowledge and predictive tools to battle wildfires, such as those that destroyed thousands of homes and businesses in 2017
A novel approach to connecting everyday appliances via the Internet manages to wirelessly link objects without the use of batteries or electronics
By applying a novel computer algorithm to mimic how the brain learns, a team of researchers -- with the aid of San Diego Supercomputer Center at the University of California, San Diego's Comet supercomputer and the center's Neuroscience Gateway -- has identified and replicated neural circuitry that resembles how an unimpaired brain controls limb movement
University of California, Berkeley, researchers have developed a robotic learning technology that enables robots to imagine the future of their actions so they can figure out how to manipulate objects they have never encountered before
By compressing the data at its source, researchers at Purdue University have developed a technology that allows real-time holographic image transmission, small enough to be streamed over existing consumer data networks and received by any cellphone or web browser
Dr. Ajay Sharda and his colleagues and students do work in precision agriculture to increase efficiency of farming through innovations in farm machinery, sensors and technology and agronomic algorithm development
Have you ever wondered if planets are still being formed? Dr. Debra Fischer answers your question in this special "Mysteries of the Cosmos" edition of Ask a Scientist
With support from the National Science Foundation, solar plasma physicists at the University of Michigan study solar storms as they form and then barrel off the sun, sometimes hitting Earth with damaging force
With support from the National Science Foundation, Ragib Hasan of The University of Alabama at Birmingham is retrofitting everyday objects with next generation, highly secure, personal cloud computing capability
How might professional development (PD) be designed to help elementary mathematics teachers develop knowledge and skills that are usable in practice?
Is the universe infinite and will it last forever? Saul Perlmutter, a professor of physics at the University of California, Berkeley, answers your question in this special "Mysteries of the Cosmos" edition of Ask a Scientist
On Aug. 17, 2017, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) and Virgo detected, for the first time, gravitational waves from the collision of two neutron stars
Interactive Robogami uses simulations and interactive feedback with algorithms for design composition, allowing users to focus on high-level conceptual design
We asked Mark Mote, a graduate researcher at the Georgia Institute of Technology's Robotarium, what is coding?
Tzahi Cohen-Karni describes his work to record electrical signals in three dimensions
Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have discovered two groups of neurons that can be turned on and off like a light switch to alleviate the movement-related symptoms of Parkinson's disease for longer periods of time
Howard University professor Steven Richardson tells the story of how he earned a scholarship to Columbia University and soon found deeper truths in the mathematical universe of quantum physics.
Texas A&M University researchers professor Mladen Kezunovic and graduate students Tatjana Dokic and Po-Chen Chen have developed the framework for a model that can predict weather hazards, vulnerability of electric grids and the economic impact of the potential damage
