Merging memory and computation, programmable chip speeds AI, slashes power use

By shifting a fundamental property of computation, Princeton researchers have built a new type of computer chip that boosts the performance and slashes the energy demands of systems used for artificial intelligence.

Innovation key to N.J. climate, economic future, Gov. Murphy tells Andlinger meeting at Princeton

Gov. Phil Murphy addressed a gathering at Princeton University on Nov. 9 and sketched his plan to bring a range of new technologies to the state.

Gift expands impact of Center for Information Technology Policy

Princeton will establish a new technology and democracy program within the University’s Center for Information Technology Policy (CITP), a leading authority on issues related to artificial intelligence, internet privacy and security, big data, cryptocurrencies, and the impact of digital technologies on society.

Researchers simplify tiny structures’ construction drip by drip

Research point to method that could harness droplets to cheaply and quickly fabricate objects that normally require a more expensive and time-consuming process.

Cross-sector partnerships advance climate solutions, broaden education

Yueh-Lin (Lynn) Loo, Director of the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment and the Theodora D. ’78 and William H. Walton III ’74 Professor in Engineering, discusses the innovations needed to meet the challenges of a changing climate.

Math describes how bubbles pop

Researchers have developed a formula that describes how bubbles burst. The finding has implications for research from atmospheric science to oceanography.

Experts assess voting security as midterm elections approach

Despite progress in securing voting in the United States, many jurisdictions still use electronic voting machines that leave no paper trail. According to experts who gathered October 17 at Princeton, this is a serious vulnerability.

‘Ghost’ particles, gliding through sun, reveal inner workings of solar furnace

Investigators of the Borexino collaboration report the most detailed record to date of neutrinos produced by fusion reactions in the solar interior. Often called ghost particles because they pass through matter without leaving a trace, neutrinos can be used as proxies to determine the chain of reactions that make up solar fusion — the reaction that spews forth the sun’s tremendous energy.

New tool streamlines the creation of moving pictures

It’s often easy to imagine balloons soaring or butterflies fluttering across a still image, but realizing this vision through computer animation is easier said than done. Now, a team of researchers has developed a new tool that makes animating such images much simpler.

On the road in Hawaii, Princeton team seeks clearer picture of volcanic air quality

Mark Zondlo’s research team monitored air quality on Hawaii’s Big Island during the large eruption of the Kilauea volcano.
