As life has evolved, its complexity has increased exponentially, just like Moore's law. Now geneticists have extrapolated this trend backwards and found that by this measure, life is older than the Earth itself.
The risks associated with major IT projects are being vastly underestimated, according to the largest study of global IT projects ever undertaken.
A blob of "intelligent" goo can compute solutions to one of the most famous problems in mathematics and produces a route map as well, say computer scientists.
Central Banks could use random investment strategies to make markets more stable, say econophysicists
The Chelyabinsk meteorite is from a family of Earth-crossing rocks called Apollo asteroids and there are 80 million others like it, say astronomers
The famous Hollywood filming technique will change the way we access the huge computer simulations of the future, say computer scientists
Astrophysicists apply 17,000 CPU core years of number crunching to a 15-year old data set and find 24 new pulsars
