Family TV viewing and SMS texting could help cut internet energy use
Family TV viewing and SMS texting could help cut internet energy use
Scrapping automatically-playing videos in apps and reversing trends of instant messaging and on-demand services could be key to cutting the growing energy demand of the Internet. Researchers looking more closely than ever before into everyday mobile device habits - and in particular the impact smartphone and tablet apps have on data demand - are suggesting ways that society can cut back on its digital energy consumption.

Humanitarian efforts could be aided by AI
Humanitarian efforts could be aided by AI
Researchers have developed an AI algorithm to accurately predict the gender of pre-paid mobile phone users, which could be useful in crises. Phone tracking technology is already used to locate those in need of aid in humanitarian crises; but the latest development could help further, for example by identifying vulnerable groups such as women with potentially young children.

How can a quantum machine learn another quantum system?
How can a quantum machine learn another quantum system?
Quantum computing will soon enter a revolutionary new age of quantum supremacy, in which quantum computers are expected to outperform the computational power of the classical ones, unlocking new applications and technologies such as designing new drugs and processing big data. Before such a grand goal is achieved, a question remains as to how we can calibrate existing quantum computers and how can we verify their computing outcomes?
