During the month of November, 258 schools across Indiana competed in the 2nd Annual Hoosier Math Cup, a contest encouraging kids to practice their math skills and have fun while creating a stronger foundation for learning. Nearly 26,000 students participated in the statewide contest sponsored by the Indiana Department of Education and Apangea Math, a web-based award-winning provider of supplemental math instruction for grades 3 - 12. Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) December 12, 2011 During the...

The fundamental resource that drives a quantum computer is entanglement–the connection between two distant particles which Einstein famously called 'spooky action at a distance'. The Bristol researchers have, for the first time, shown that this remarkable phenomenon can be generated, manipulated and measured entirely on a tiny silica chip. They have also used the same chip to measure mixture–an often unwanted effect from the environment, but a phenomenon which can now be...

Algorithm Accurately Predicts Which Cars Will Run Red Lights
2011-12-01 06:10:46

Researchers at MIT have devised an algorithm that predicts when an oncoming car is likely to run a red light. The team developed an algorithm based on parameters such as the vehicle's deceleration and its distance from a light to determine which cars were potentially going to run a red light, and which were going to be "compliant." They tested the algorithm on data collected from an intersection in Virginia and found that it accurately identified potential violators within a couple of...

A discovery by physicists at UC Santa Barbara may earn silicon carbide —— a semiconductor commonly used by the electronics industry —— a role at the center of a new generation of information technologies designed to exploit quantum physics for tasks such as ultrafast computing and nanoscale sensing. The research team discovered that silicon carbide contains crystal imperfections that can be controlled at a quantum mechanical level. The finding is published this week...

An advanced material that could help bring about next-generation "spintronic" computers has revealed one of its fundamental secrets to a team of scientists from Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The material, constructed of two different compounds, might one day allow computers to use the magnetic spin of electrons, in addition to their charge, for computation. A host of innovations could result, including fast memory devices...

Scientists have successfully demonstrated that they can build some of the basic components for digital devices out of bacteria and DNA Scientists have successfully demonstrated that they can build some of the basic components for digital devices out of bacteria and DNA, which could pave the way for a new generation of biological computing devices, in research published today in the journal Nature Communications. The researchers, from Imperial College London, have demonstrated that they...

Greg Herzog has created a Quantum Reaction Algorithm using a geometric mathematical equation, where X number of points represents the makeup of a subject and each degree of expression within the context of each point is color coded and weighted accordingly. New York, NY (PRWEB) September 23, 2011 Greg Herzog Paints The First Contemporary Abstract Painting of the Museum Of Modern Art, using his trademarked technique: COLOR CODING DNA ®. What would a subject look like if they were...

A combination of two algorithms developed at MIT allows autonomous robots to execute tasks much more efficiently – and move more predictably. Ask someone with her hands in her lap to pick up a coffee mug on the table she´s sitting at, and she´ll extract her hand from under the table and stretch her arm out toward the mug. Instruct an autonomous robot to perform the same feat, and it may think for a few seconds, zigzag its robotic hand back and forth under the table, then...

Thanks to advances in experimental design, physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have achieved a record-low probability of error in quantum information processing with a single quantum bit (qubit)–the first published error rate small enough to meet theoretical requirements for building viable quantum computers. A quantum computer could potentially solve certain problems that are intractable using today's technology, even supercomputers. The NIST...

By combining two frontier technologies, spintronics and straintronics, a team of researchers from Virginia Commonwealth University has devised perhaps the world's most miserly integrated circuit. Their proposed design runs on so little energy that batteries are not even necessary; it could run merely by tapping the ambient energy from the environment. Rather than the traditional charge-based electronic switches that encode the basic 0s and 1s of computer lingo, spintronics harnesses the...

Algorithm
2013-12-16 10:46:30

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...
