Microchips installed in multimedia devices like hearing aids and cameras can be made more efficient and much faster by trimming off unnecessary portions of the circuitry. Accuracy in the devices, however, is reduced. “The result of this less-accurate computing process is much greater efficiency. By cleverly managing the probability of errors and by limiting which calculations produce errors, the designers have found they can simultaneously cut energy demands and boost performance.”
For generations, physicists have been searching for a quantum theory of gravity. But what if gravity isn't actually quantum at all?
Embedded in a cell phone or in accessories such as rings, bracelets or watches, the novel tools aim to make it easier to manage hypertension. But they must still pass several tests before hitting the clinic.
Without even realizing it, we’ve actually become pretty god-like in our powers.
