A shortage of computer science teachers is impeding state and local educators' adoption of new computer science mandates for students.
Engineers have used a supercomputing technique that mimics natural selection to design the internal structure of an aircraft wing from scratch.
Russian operatives set up an array of misleading Web sites and social media pages to identify American voters susceptible to propaganda, then used a powerful Facebook tool to repeatedly send them messages designed to influence their political behavior, say people familiar with the investigation into foreign meddling in the U.S. election.
Recent insights into how the West Nile virus replicates using cell proteins were gained using analytical ultracentrifugation technology.
Panos Artemiadis at Arizona State University's Human-Oriented Robotics and Control Lab says the next three to five years will likely see the advent of unmanned vehicle swarms controlled by human-brain interfaces.
Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) say they have developed NeuroMapper, a tablet-based application that helps doctors make better decisions during brain surgeries.
Researchers at the Lawrence Berkeley and Lawrence Livermore national laboratories are constructing the first-ever end-to-end simulation code to capture the geology and physics of regional earthquakes, and characterize how tremors affect buildings, as part of the DOE's Exascale Computing Project.
A major breakthrough in cryptography may have solved one of the biggest obstacles to using blockchain technology on Wall Street: keeping transaction data private.
Three computer science students explain the pros and cons of spending their summer away from coding.
It might be lingering bashfully on the icy outer edges of our solar system, hiding in the dark, but subtly pulling strings behind the scenes: stretching out the orbits of distant bodies, perhaps even tilting the entire solar system to one side.
One of the many perks of being human (upright walking, big brains, we can win awards) is our ability to transcend the limits of our senses. Take vision, for instance.
Chinese researchers have completed a practical demonstration of quantum key distribution, showing that it's possible to encrypt and send data between two locations in a highly secure way.
Across the United Kingdom, the last of the spring barley has been brought in from the fields, the culmination of an agricultural calendar whose rhythm has remained unchanged for millennia.
Researchers at Pennsylvania State University say they have designed a smartphone-based neural-network program that can automatically identify diseases in the cassava plant with near-flawless accuracy.
Researchers say they have found a sea of electrons that spin in opposing circles, a phenomenon known as the chiral spin mode.
Researchers have shown they can create tiny disturbances in magnetic orientation at will in specific locations, which they say could be used to make a more efficient data storage system.
Researchers at the University of Virginia and the University of California-Davis say they have completed a study evaluating the impact of programming languages on software quality, and found functional languages are superior to procedural/object-oriented languages in some respects.
Researchers aim to relieve workplace stress by first understanding its causes.
Code.org estimates fewer than half of U.S. K-12 schools offer computer science courses, which a 2016 Google-Gallup survey elevates to 75% when accounting for after-school activities and clubs.
Researchers are working to improve intelligent vehicle systems by combining the data collected by such a vehicle with that collected from other intelligent vehicles.
