Composer harnesses artificial intelligence to create music
News & Analysis  
12/30/2002   Post a comment
Just as IBM's Deep Blue showed the world a computer can play chess as well as a human master, Eduardo Reck Miranda, a researcher for the Sony Computer Science Laboratories Inc., aims to demonstrate a computer program able to compose original music. So far, neural networks have succeeded in imitating distinct musical styles, but truly original compositions have remained elusive. Miranda is tackling that problem with an orchestra of virtual musicians — called agents — that interact to co

Deposition technique spins metal salt into pure gold
News & Analysis  
12/17/2002   Post a comment
Researchers at Purdue University have tapped an inexpensive wet-chemistry method to deposit nanoscale patterns of gold, platinum or palladium directly on top of semiconductor chips. While limited at present to gallium arsenide and germanium substrates, the work could enable a low-cost alternative to current metal deposition methods in chip manufacturing. It may also hold promise for the development of single-chip biohazard sensors to combat terrorism.
Error correction may stall quantum computing
