New technology monitors and maintains drug levels

A new technology can monitor and maintain the level of drug in the bloodstream of animals. If it works in people, it could deliver the optimal dose of life-saving drugs and prevent harmful over- or underdosing.

New materials bring quantum computing closer to reality

Quantum computing could outsmart current computing for complex problem solving, but only if scientists figure out how to make it practical. A Stanford team is investigating new materials that could become the basis for such an advance.

As Moore’s law ends, brain-like computers begin

Conventional computer chips aren’t up to the challenges posed by next-generation autonomous drones and medical implants. Now, Kwabena Boahen has laid out a way forward, using ideas built in to our brains.

Personalized virtual reality displays match eyesight

Researchers are developing a type of virtual reality display that adapts to differences in how we see depending on whether we need glasses or how old we are. This technology could reduce headaches or nausea caused by existing VR headsets.
