  • No Man?s Sky: A Vast Game Crafted by Algorithms

    A new computer game, No Man?s Sky, demonstrates a new way to build computer games filled with diverse flora and fauna.

    Sean Murray, one of the creators of the computer game No Man?s Sky, can?t guarantee that the virtual universe he is building is infinite, but he?s certain that, if it isn?t, nobody will ever find out. ?If you were to visit one virtual planet every second,? he says, ?then our own sun will have died before you?d have seen them all.?



  • Could "Force Illusions" Help Wearables Catch On?

    Researchers have made haptic interfaces that create the sensation of being pushed or pulled by an invisible force.

    What if the compass app in your phone didn?t just visually point north but actually seemed to pull your hand in that direction?



  • Can Technology Fix Medicine?

    Medical data is a hot spot for venture investing and product innovation. The payoff could be better care.

    After decades as a technological laggard, medicine has entered its data age. Mobile technologies, sensors, genome sequencing, and advances in analytic software now make it possible to capture vast amounts of information about our individual makeup and the environment around us. The sum of this information could transform medicine, turning a field aimed at treating the average patient into one that?s customized to each person while shifting more control and responsibility from doctors to patients.



  • Chinese Researchers Stop Wheat Disease with Gene Editing

    Researchers have created wheat that is resistant to a common disease, using advanced gene editing methods.

    Advanced genome-editing techniques have been used to create a strain of wheat resistant to a destructive fungal pathogen?called powdery mildew?that is a major bane to the world?s top food source, according to scientists at one of China?s leading centers for agricultural research.



  • Mathematicians Explain Why Social Epidemics Spread Faster in Some Countries Than Others

    Psychologists have always puzzled over why people in Sweden were slower to start smoking and slower to stop. Now a group of mathematicians have worked out why.


    In January 1964, the U.S. Surgeon General?s Advisory Committee on Smoking and Health published a landmark report warning of the serious health effects of tobacco. It was not the first such report but it is probably the most famous because it kick-started a global campaign to reduce the levels of smoking and the deaths it causes.
