Many devices that are now a part of our daily lives collect information about how we use them. Computer scientists Dan Boneh and Henry Corrigan-Gibbs have created a new method for keeping that collected data private.
Stanford scientists and their collaborators have identified two key genes responsible for the rapid growth of deer antlers. They hope their insights will open the door to new approaches for treating bone diseases and fractures.
By structuring nanowires in a way that mimics geckos’ ears, researchers have found a way to record the incoming angle of light. This technology could have applications in robotic vision, photography and augmented reality.
Neuroscientists know a lot about how our brains learn new things, but not much about how they choose what to focus on while they learn. Now, Stanford researchers have traced that ability to an unexpected place.
