A new platform ensures that web services adhere to users’ preferences on how their data are stored and shared in the cloud. In a paper being presented at this week’s USENIX Networked Systems Design and Implementation conference, the researchers behind the platform, called Riverbed, show how it forces data center servers to only use data in ways that users explicitly approve.READ MORE
Scientists at Tokyo Tech, Ricoh co. and The National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology have developed an ultra-low-power atomic clock (ULPAC) for small satellites to enable future communication systems beyond 5G. The proposed device outperforms the current industry standards in various benchmarks, such as size, stability, and power consumption.
With their ability to treat a wide a variety of diseases, spherical nucleic acids are poised to revolutionize medicine. But before these digitally designed nanostructures can reach their full potential, researchers need to optimize their various components. A team has developed a direct route to optimize these particles, bringing them one step closer to becoming a viable treatment option for numerous diseases, including cancer.READ MORE
