Research Bits: May 28


Nanofluidic memristive neural networks Engineers from EPFL developed a functional nanofluidic memristive device that relies on ions, rather than electrons and holes, to compute and store data. “Memristors have already been used to build electronic neural networks, but our goal is to build a nanofluidic neural network that takes advantage of changes in ion concentrations, similar to living... » read more

Week In Review: Auto, Security, Pervasive Computing


Former Apple engineer Weibao Wang was indicted for stealing Apple’s autonomous vehicle hardware and software IP and giving the information to Chinese competitors. Among other items, authorities said they found source code for the project on the engineer’s personal laptop, which was seized at his home. Wang fled to China the same day a search warrant was executed. This is one of five cases b... » read more
