Undergraduates Design and Build ‘Sandbox’ to Show How Gravity Works


The University of Iowa has a new sandbox—and it’s used to explain gravity. Undergraduates physics and astronomy designed and built an augmented-reality sandbox where users can design their own universe and then watch how gravity affects an object as it travels through the imagined environment.

Bitcoin Risks: What You Should Know About the Volatile Digital Currency


If you own Bitcoin or want to invest in the mercurial digital currency, which soared to more than $19,000 before plunging in value, watch out, a Rutgers University–New Brunswick professor says. Security and privacy issues, not to mention the possibility of a Bitcoin market crash, should give you pause for concern, according to Janne Lindqvist, an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in the School of Engineering.

ORNL Researchers Use Titan to Accelerate Design, Training of Deep Learning Networks


For deep learning to be effective, existing neural networks to be modified, or novel networks designed and then "trained" so that they know precisely what to look for and can produce valid results. This is a time-consuming and difficult task, but one that a team of ORNL researchers recently demonstrated can be dramatically expedited with a capable computing system.
