VCs Investing in Cloud Computing
Ben Horowitz, partner in the Andreessen Horowitz venture capital company, says there’s a new big wave of technological innovation coming in cloud infrastructure technology.
Cloud computing, where software applications are hosted online rather than on individual computers, has created new space for investment and innovation, says venture capitalist Ben Horowitz. "Horowitz said there is a parallel to the change that occurred thanks to the PC revolution, which took computing from centralized mainframe computers to the current distributed model. Just as that change required a different networking infrastructure which, in turn, required new types of storage and servers, cloud computing will result in 'a big wave of technological innovation,' Horowitz said."

An innovation may lead to lifelike evolving machines.
- Scientists at Cornell University devise a material with 3 key traits of life.
- The goal for the researchers is not to create life but lifelike machines.
- The researchers were able to program metabolism into the material's DNA.
A new method promises to capture an elusive dark world particle.
- Scientists working on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) devised a method for trapping dark matter particles.
- Dark matter is estimated to take up 26.8% of all matter in the Universe.
- The researchers will be able to try their approach in 2021, when the LHC goes back online.
