Scientists at Brigham Young University have developed an algorithm that can accurately identify objects in images or videos and can learn to recognize new objects on its own. Although other object recognition systems exist, the Evolution-Constructed Features algorithm is notable in that it decides for itself what features of an object are significant for identifying the object and is able to learn new objects without human intervention.  Read More

Different computing tasks can prompt us to open our laptops or reach for the tablet, while there are some that leave us somewhere in between.

With the device's ability to transform into a laptop, tablet, desktop PC and gaming device, ICE believes it may have zeroed in on a one-size-fits-all solution.  Read More

Perhaps the hottest item of many on display at Intel's huge booth at CES 2014 was a relatively non-descript convertible laptop from Asus. The unique selling point for this touchscreen system, dubbed the Transformer Book Duet, is that it not only runs Windows 8.1 but can also switch over to an Android 4.2.2 mode with just a few clicks or taps.  Read More

US gaming hardware company Razer has chosen CES 2014 to unveil plans for what it calls "the world's most modular gaming system." Dubbed Project Christine, the desktop gaming PC promises to unlock the upgradability and performance of a high-end gaming PC, to the non-geeks among us.  Read More

The TA272HUL Android All-in-One computer from Acer

Acer is cementing its support for Google's operating environment with the release of two new All-in-One (AIO) desktop computers. Rather than extend its line of devices built around Chrome though, and go toe-to-toe with LG's Chromebase perhaps, the new arrivals both bring the mobile OS experience to the desktop with Android Jelly Bean running the show. The TA272HUL features a high resolution WQHD touchscreen display for crisp onscreen action, while the DA223 HQL packs its own battery for portability.  Read More

LG continues to attempt to beat the usual avalanche of announcements at CES by getting in early. After recently announcing a 105-in curved UHD TV and some UltraWide monitors, the company has revealed it will also have a new Ultra PC laptop, a couple of second-generation Tab-Book2 hybrid devices, and a new 27-in all-in-one (AIO) PC at next week's show.  Read More

New MRAM technology could revolutionize data storage in electronic devices (Image: Shutter...

Back in 2005, Professor of Physics Johan Åkerman touted magnetoresistive random access memory (MRAM) as a promising candidate for a "universal memory" that could replace the various types of memory commonly found alongside each other in modern electronic devices. A team of researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) and Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) has now developed a new type of MRAM that could see Åkerman's vision become a reality.  Read More
