Quantum Physics May Make Secure, Single-use Computer Memories
2014-01-16 14:47:31

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Computer security systems may one day get a boost from quantum physics, as a result of recent research from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Computer scientist Yi-Kai Liu has devised away to make a security device that has proved notoriously difficult to build—a "one-shot" memory unit, whose contents can be read only a single time. The research, which Liu is presenting at this week's Innovations in...

Highly Accurate System Learns To Decipher Images On Its Own
2014-01-16 11:04:57

Brigham Young University If we’ve learned anything from post-apocalyptic movies it’s that computers eventually become self-aware and try to eliminate humans. BYU engineer Dah-Jye Lee isn’t interested in that development, but he has managed to eliminate the need for humans in the field of object recognition. Lee has created an algorithm that can accurately identify objects in images or video sequences without human calibration. “In most cases, people are in charge of deciding...

Applied Mathematics
2014-01-02 10:00:11

Applied mathematics is a branch of mathematics that focuses on mathematical methods that are usually used in science, engineering, business, and industry. Therefore, “applied mathematics” is a mathematical science with specialized knowledge. The term “applied mathematics” also explains the professional specialty in which mathematicians work on practical problems; as a profession focused on practical problems, applied mathematics focuses on the formulation and study of mathematical...

In mathematics and computer science, an algorithm is a step-by-step procedure for calculations. Algorithms are used for calculations, automated reasoning, and data processing. An algorithm is an effective technique expressed as a finite list of well-defined instructions for calculating a function. Starting from an initial state and an initial input, the instructions describe a computation that, when executed, proceeds through a finite number of well-defined successive states and eventually...

Thorvald Nicolai Thiele was born on December 24, 1838 and died on September 26, 1910. He was a famous mathematician, astronomer and statistician. He is best known for the interpolation and three body problem. He was the first to hypothesize Brownian motion which was derived from his study of cumulants. He founded the Hfnia Insurance Company and acted as their Mathematical Director. He also led the way for the organization of the Danish Society of Actuaries.
