Neuromorphic (brain-inspired) hardware can perform scientific computations faster and more energy-efficiently than conventional computing systems. Potentially, it can even perform calculations that are not yet possible with current computer systems.
Klaas Landsman, professor of Mathematical Physics at Radboud University, has been appointed as a member of the advisory committee of the National Institution for Scientific Integrity (in Dutch: Landelijk Orgaan Wetenschappelijke Integriteit, LOWI) with effect from 1 October.
Astronomers have spotted signs of a ‘hot spot’ orbiting Sagittarius A*, the black hole at the centre of our galaxy. The finding helps us better understand the enigmatic and dynamic environment of our supermassive black hole.
Scientists using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA)— an international observatory co-operated by the US National Science Foundation’s National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO)— have for the first time recorded millimeter-wavelength light from a fiery explosion caused by the merger of a neutron star with another star.
Lakes and other freshwater systems emit large quantities of methane, which is the second most important greenhouse gas worldwide after CO2. Dredging and the use of Phoslock (a phosphate-binding clay particle) can reduce these lake emissions by over 50%.
The movement of elephants through wildlife corridors is directly impacted by differing forms of human pressures and development, new research by Elephants Without Borders (EWB) and Radboud University shows.
