Graphene is a single atom thick layer of carbon. It was thought to change everything but forget that, because now there's silicene. Researchers just made the first sheet of single atom thick silicon.
Silicene has been a work in progress for years, but its finally done now and it works well with components. That's because silicene is made of silicon, which most chips are already made of.
Patrick Vogt of Berlin's Technical University in Germany, along side researchers at Aix-Marseille University in France managed to create silicene by condensing silicon vapor onto a silver plate to form a single layer of atoms.
The researchers tested the sheet and found that it closely matched properties it was theorized to exhibit.
Apple's security is getting more lax these days, and 9to5Mac have gotten their hands on some leaked images of the iPhone 6S. It looks a lot like its predecessor, and according to user Mark Gurman, the major design changes will be internal. Read more
It looks like Google has a lot to answer for after its facial recognition software thought these two black people were gorillas. Some engineer is going to get it because the image recognition algorithm somehow couldn't differentiate human and animal. Read more
Whatever line of business you are in, there is always a chance that things can go wrong. Whether it’s a natural disaster or a customer service mixup, without the right preparation and protection in place, it could be disastrous. Of course, where there are problems, there will also be technology built to try and solve them. Read more
