Scientists at Cardiff University have used high-performance computing to analyse brain scans 24 times faster than was previously possible, giving a more complete view of the brain.
Socially damaged and disadvantaged young people in the inner cities can be switched on to mathematics through the use of scientific computing software, according to our new Education blog
Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Mechanics of Materials have developed a more realistic method of simulating cars crashing, potentially saving manufacturers thousands of pounds with each test.
The randomness of riots is also what makes them so dangerous. Now, a geographer at Arizona State University is designing a computer model to help predict human behaviour at its most unpredictable.
David Robson finds that the semantic web is on the brink of realisation, in scientific research at least, with profound implications for electronic laboratory notebooks.
Wolfram Research, the creator of Mathematica, is to award a $25,000 prize to the first person or group to solve a 70-year-old puzzle at the very core of modern computing.
The University of Manchester is developing a Â£3m research centre to provide cutting-edge research on complex, real-life systems such as car safety systems, flight controllers, power stations and the human body.
A currently unpublished report has revealed a lack of education and understanding about the correct approach to bioinformatics could place unnecessary strain on life sciences companies in years to come.
The Penn State College of Medicine and the Penn State Hershey Medical Centre are using Genologics Geneus and Proteus LIMS products to help gain recognition as a cancer research centre from the National Cancer Institute
Scientists at Sheffield Hallam University have designed a computer game that realistically models the flow of water around a virtual duck.
Building a Smart Laboratory 2018 highlights the importance of adopting smart laboratory technology, as well as pointing out the challenges and pitfalls of the process
Informatics experts share their experiences on the implementing new technologies and manging change in the modern laboratory
This chapter will consider the different classes of instruments and computerised instrument systems to be found in laboratories and the role they play in computerised experiments and sample processing – and the steady progress towards all-electronic laboratories.
This chapter considers how the smart laboratory contributes to the requirements of a knowledge eco-system, and the practical consequences of joined-up science. Knowledge management describes the processes that bring people and information together to address the acquisition, processing, storage, use, and re-use of knowledge to develop understanding and to create value
This chapter takes the theme of knowledge management beyond document handling into the analysis and mining of data. Technology by itself is not enough – laboratory staff need to understand the output from the data analysis tools – and so data analytics must be considered holistically, starting with the design of the experiment
