The supercomputer of the future operates with quantum bits, but quantum systems are fragile and they degrade easily. Now Danish scientists have managed to turn this degradation into an advantage, making it easier to create the special quantum states required for a quantum computer.
New video monitoring technology allows doctors to monitor artificially fertilised eggs before they are inserted into the uterus. The technology has been used successfully abroad and can help doctors identify the best eggs for incubation.
With a rapidly growing world population, clean drinking water has become a scarce resource. Using new technology that traces sound signals, Danish scientists hope to find groundwater in densely populated areas.
We can throw and catch a ball because our brain uses patterns to recognise situations and react to them. This form of pattern recognition is now being used to develop an artificial brain, which in record time can simulate buildings and produce a fatigue life estimation.
Strange as it may sound, concrete from your old bathroom can help make our environment greener. This is because concrete has a great ability to bind phosphorus, say the scientists behind a new project.
