Researchers will gather in Orlando, Fla. beginning July 13 to advance the state of DNA computing, a field that holds the promise of ultra-dense systems that pack megabytes of information into devices the size of a silicon transistor. While some researchers suggest DNA computing is an infant discipline looking to find its way into real-world applications, papers presented at the Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECC) will describe new techniques and tools for building and using DN

Foveon Inc. has built a high-end digital still camera that aims to rival the quality of analog film. The new startup is backed by Carver Mead, the inventor of the gallium-arsenide transistor, the silicon compiler and the artificial retina. Although Mead is not revealing details of the three analog VLSI image chips that are to be used in place of a charge-coupled device (CCD), he claims the Foveon camera spits out a 48-Mbyte, 4,000- x 4,000-pixel Photoshop file.
