An international team of scientists has performed the ultimate miniaturization of computer memory: storing information inside the nucleus of an atom. This breakthrough is a key step in bringing to life a quantum computer - a device based on the fundamental theory of quantum mechanics which could crack problems unsolvable by current technology.
Princeton University is the lead institution for a new $10 million National Science Foundation grant that will fund research on "intractability" -- a concept that has profound implications for a broad range of fields, from e-commerce to quantum computing.
A team of academic, industry and independent researchers has demonstrated a new class of computer attacks that compromise the contents of "secure" memory systems, particularly in laptops.
Li-Shiuan Peh has been named the winner of the 2007 Anita Borg Early Career Award by the Committee on the Status of Women in Computing Research.
When handling a present-day crisis, don't forget to invest in the future, Anne Mulcahy, the chairman and chief executive officer of Xerox Corp., told a packed house April 5 at Princeton.
Researchers at the Princeton computer science department's Soundlab have won the 2006 International Computer Music Conference Distinguished Paper Award.
