Chinese researchers have developed a flexible, remote-controlled robotic ray that can swim through water nearly twice as fast as previous robo-swimmers without being tethered.
The number of computer science majors has more than doubled since 2011, according to the Computing Research Association.
Scientists are getting closer to building life from scratch and technology pioneers are taking notice, with record sums moving into a field that could deliver novel drugs, materials, chemicals and even perfumes.
No two stem cells are identical, even if they are genetic clones.
Researchers have developed tiny "black holes" on a silicon wafer that serve as a new type of photodetector.
