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A currently unpublished report has revealed a lack of education and understanding about the correct approach to bioinformatics could place unnecessary strain on life sciences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.
