Three-Dimensional Nanomagnets for the computer of tomorrow
15 November 2017 8:47

Since the late 60´s electronic devices have stored and transmitted information (bits) in two-dimensional circuits. Now, researchers at the University of Cambridge have been able to break this barrier by creating a nanoscale magnetic circuit capable of moving information along the three dimensions of space. This breakthrough could lead to an important increase in storage and processing capacities of electronic devices over those used today.

New algorithms locate where a video was filmed from its images and sounds
11 February 2015 10:01

Researchers from the Ramón Llull University (Spain) have created a system capable of geolocating videos by comparing their audiovisual content with a worldwide multimedia database. In the future this could help to find people who have gone missing after posting images on social networks, or even to recognise locations of terrorist executions.

Three out of every four European banks fails in the accessibility of their websites
4 March 2014 10:55

Researchers from the University of Oviedo (Spain) have analysed the websites of nearly 50 banks from the EU to check whether any user, even if disabled, has equal access. The results show that this right is not fulfilled in 74% of cases, and therefore they demand greater interest from financial entities in this technological and social problem.

A new system accelerates verification of printed electronic documents
17 February 2014 12:21

Researchers at the Universidad Carlos III in Madrid (UC3M) have designed a system that speeds up online administrative procedures by automatically verifying and validating printed electronic documents, a process that had been done manually up until now.

New proposal for the better allocation of donated livers in transplants
16 January 2014 9:15

Researchers at the University of Cordoba (Spain) have developed a system that measures compatibility between donors and the most serious receivers in liver transplants. This is a mathematical method that includes the experience of almost 1,500 donations registered in transplant units in Spain and the United Kingdom.

New method for reconstructing long-gone historic buildings in 3D
17 December 2013 10:21

Researchers from Murcia and Valencia have recreated the palace that belonged to Ambassador Vich, a Gothic-Renaissance jewel that was demolished in the 19th Century. The technique, which uses historical and archaeological data of the building, can be utilised to learn more about other architectural monuments that have been destroyed.
