New material could help robots switch between hard and soft states to squeeze through small spaces -- much like an octopus.
Big Blue sets a five-year plan to figure out the manufacturing technology for the great-grandchild of today's chip tech -- and the even more different generations beyond that.
Researchers at Big Blue improved graphene-based radio receiver performance by attaching the fragile form of carbon material at the end of the chipmaking process.
An experimental clock has set the records for both accuracy and stability, being able to keep time for longer than the Earth has been in existence.
Some say the odds are good that we're living in a computer simulation, and a few researchers think they might know how to find out the truth.
In March, the University of Illinois' National Center for Supercomputing Applications unveiled Blue Waters. CNET Road Trip 2013 checked out our new national supercomputer.
On Road Trip 2013, CNET's Daniel Terdiman traveled to the Argonne National Lab to find out the history of the world's first nuclear reaction, Chicago Pile-1.
The settlement marks the fifth lawsuit resolved in recent months by the controversial patent holding company, which claims control of more than 40,000 intellectual-property assets.
Helping the hunt for something to replace silicon transistors, Big Blue researchers have found a way to precisely place carbon nanotubes -- or rather, to encourage them to place themselves.
In 1965, Intel co-founder Gordon Moore foresaw an inexorable rise in chip power that eventually delivered the computer to your pocket. While long in the tooth, Moore's prediction still has plenty of life in it. Here's why.
