Amazon Web Services has added another computer science heavyweight to its employee roster. James Gosling, often referred to as the “Father of Java,” announced on Facebook Monday that he would be joining the cloud provider as a distinguished engineer. Gosling came up with the original design of Java and implemented its first compiler and virtual machine […]
(University of Illinois College of Liberal Arts & Sciences) University of Illinois geologist Lijun Liu and his team have created a computer model of tectonic activity so effective that they believe it has potential to predict where earthquakes and volcanoes will occur. Show More Summary
A computer science degree from a top university can help graduates land their dream job at companies like Apple, Google, and Facebook. But which computer science courses are the best ones to try and to get onto if you want to impress...Show More Summary
John Underkoffler gave an illuminating talk about the future of computing interfaces — and how slow the tech industry has been about creating new ones — at our recent GamesBeat Summit event in Berkeley, Calif. His talk was, unsurprisingly, wonderfully visual as he stepped through the evolution of early augmented reality. His talk was important […]
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) At the International Conference on Robotics and Automation later this month, researchers from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) and ETH Zurich will present a system that allows a director to specify a shot's framing -- which figures or faces appear where, at what distance.

The online BrainHQ adaptive training program developed by Posit Science is better than any computer game at helping multiple sclerosis (MS) patients improve their cognitive skills, according to a study by researchers at New York University (NYU). Show More Summary
(University of Houston) As cybersecurity experts scramble to stop another wave of ransomware and malware scams that have infected computers around the world, computer science experts at the University of Houston are 'phishing' for reasons why these types of attacks are so successful.
Stack Overflow is an incredible resource. I don’t know anyone who works as a developer — or has successfully passed their Computer Science degree — without faithfully consulting it. It doesn’t matter how obscure your problem is, or indeed, how obvious it is – Stack Overflow has your back. Show More Summary
Microsoft, the NSA, computer users, and the nature of computer science all bare a portion of the blame.
Formal Systems, Deep Learning, Assembly Games, and Logs vs. Metrics Form and Content in Computer Science (Marvin Minsky) -- Minsky's 1970 ACM Turing Lecture. Let us consider a more elementary, but still puzzling, trade-off, that between addition and multiplication. Show More Summary
A British startup founded five years ago by Cambridge University computer science graduates has received $502 million to develop large-scale virtual reality projects in a funding round led by Japan's SoftBank.

With a combined $1.8 million from the W.M. Keck Foundation and the University of Arizona, materials science and engineering professor Pierre Deymier explores building a quantum computer that uses sound instead of quantum particles to process information.
(University of Arizona College of Engineering) University of Arizona materials science and engineering researcher Pierre Deymier is building a quantum computer that uses sound waves instead of quantum particles such as electrons to process information.
sciencefictioninterfaces.tumblr.com is exactly what its name suggests. I am envious of the people who make computer interfaces for movies. Their designs just have to look pretty. If you like this kind of stuff, I recommend the book, Make It So: Interaction Design Lessons from Science Fiction, by Nathan Shedroff and Christopher Noessel.
Touch screens are a big driver of modern life. They allow us to work and play with computers in totally new ways and have been so useful that there’s scarcely a phone or […] The post Thanks to Science and Your Imagination, Everything Can Be a Touch Screen appeared first on Geek.com.
