Conjuring hurricanes by bits and bytes
Ning Lin denies she predicted Hurricane Sandy, the massive storm that made landfall in New York City in October 2012, causing widespread coastal ﬂooding and wind damage. But the timing was uncanny.
Rethinking microchips' design pushes computing to the edge
Responding to artificial intelligence’s exploding demands on computer networks, Princeton University researchers in recent years have radically increased the speed and slashed the energy use of specialized AI systems. Now, the researchers have moved their innovation closer to widespread use by creating co-designed hardware and software that will allow designers to blend these new types of systems into their applications.
