The human brain nearly instantaneously classifies objects, even when parts of them are hidden by obstructions. Computer-based pattern recognition, on the other hand, rarely operates in real-time. But Sandia National Laboratories researchers believe they have found a way to level the playing field.
Technique depicts magnetic vortex migration at critical current

Bell Labs has demystified how superconductors abandon their resistanceless conduction when they reach their "critical current." Tiny, previously stationary magnetic vortices, containing a single quantum of magnetic flux, begin an organized coherent migration at critical current, which Bell Labs researchers have been able to view for the first time. The new imaging technique is beginning to catch on with other superconductor researchers, and may lead to a better understanding of the high-temperat

Smart visualization software, designed by the military to represent thousands of online documents in 3-D maps, has surfaced in a commercial version called Themescape. Licensed to Cartia Inc. by the military lab Pacific Northwest National (Richland, Wash.), Themescape clusters documents with similar content onto topographical "information maps," upon which users click with a mouse to zoom in on topic areas and individual source documents.
