Breakthrough research from Google demonstrates how artificial intelligence could design computer microchips that, at the very least, perform as well as those designed by microelectronics experts - promising to be faster and more efficient in the future.
Graphene has become one of the most interesting materials discovered by mankind. Creating this material involves great precision and cost, limiting the volume in which it can be manufactured - and a new approach using HPC could work around this problem.
After tests run on human blood in laboratory conditions, researchers found that certain nanocapsules could help reduce dangerous side effects of blood clot drugs, and could potentially make it more effective at lower doses.
A new class of nanomaterials, called self-aware metamaterials, could supposedly generate their own power and sense changes in their environment - ushering the next material of fabricated living structures.
