How will Brexit impact semiconductors?

On 23rd June the voters of the United Kingdom (UK) chose to leave the European Union (EU) by a margin of 51.9 to 48.1%. The withdrawal of the UK from the EU is known as Brexit (for Britain Exit). The immediate impact of the vote was a drop in global stock markets, with UK markets the hardest hit. UK prime minister David Cameron, a supporter of the UK staying in the EU, resigned. He was replaced by Theresa May, who also opposed Brexit but has vowed to carry out the will of the people.

Imaging software predicts how you will look in the future

Imaging software predicts how you will look in the future
When we go to the hair stylist, we can browse magazines with pictures of models and point to a photo we'd like to try. Actors change appearances all the time to fit a role. Missing people are often disguised by changing their hair color and style. But how can we predict if an appearance change will look good without physically trying it? Or explore what missing children might look like if their appearance is changed?

Device lengthens the life of quantum information

Device lengthens the life of quantum information
Yale University scientists have reached a milestone in their efforts to extend the durability and dependability of quantum information. For the first time, researchers at Yale have crossed the "break even" point in preserving a bit of quantum information for longer than the lifetime of its constituent parts. They have created a novel system to encode, spot errors, decode, and correct errors in a quantum bit, also known as a "qubit."
