The Future Database

Split-second data mapping People generally associate graphic processing units (GPUs) with imaging processing. Developed for video games in the 1990s, modern GPUs are specialized circuits with thousands of small, efficient processing units, or “cores,” that work simultaneously to rapidly render graphics on screen. But for the better part of a decade, GPUs have also found […]

From teenager to pensioner—the green energy crowdfunders

Boosting the use of renewable energy has long been an ambition in Europe, but some efforts have powered down amid an ever-changing political landscape and dwindling finances. Now, crowdfunding is pulling in a new generation of green investors “I have always been interested in the environment. As a child, I thought ‘what if the world […]

Iran and Middle East could adopt fully renewable electricity systems

Iran can transition to a fully renewable electricity system and financially benefit from it by 2030. Researchers at Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) show that major oil-producing countries in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region could turn their abundant renewable energy resources into lucrative business opportunities in less than two decades. According to […]

What’s the best way for Europe to curb greenhouse emissions from cars?

As the European Union contemplates new policies aimed at meeting its emissions-reduction commitments under last year’s Paris Agreement on climate change, a new study by researchers at MIT and elsewhere could provide some valuable guidance on the most effective strategy. Rather than adopt a standard for automotive gas-mileage ratings, as the United States has done […]

Calculating the financial risks of renewable energy

For investors, deciding whether to invest money into renewable-energy projects can be difficult. The issue is volatility: Wind-powered energy production, for instance, changes annually — and even weekly or daily — which creates uncertainty and investment risks. With limited options to accurately quantify that volatility, today’s investors tend to act conservatively. An MIT spinout, EverVest, has built […]

Where’s your data? It’s not actually in the cloud, it’s sitting in a data centre

Without data centres, today’s world stops. Flights are grounded, Wall Street closes, and the internet grinds to a halt. Yet despite their emergence as nerve centres of the global economy, data centres have drawn almost no attention in debates about globalisation and nor are they often discussed outside of business and IT publications. Even the […]

Former Bell Labs site seeks to inspire new inventors

The 2 million-square-foot building where Bell Labs scientists helped launch modern cellular networks before it became one of the country’s largest vacant office buildings is drawing companies with the lure of working at a complex surrounded by technological history. A water tower in the shape of a transistor, which the company’s scientists created in 1947 […]
