COVID-19 has a fearsome enemy: the fastest supercomputer on the planet. Biophysicists at the University of Tennessee have used the IBM-built supercomputer SUMMIT to sift through tens of thousands of molecules and find possible compounds that could be utilised as a new drug against SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus responsible for the present COVID-19 pandemic.
Undoubtedly one of the most divisive and powerful names in the history of modern culture is that of Jesus Christ.

This finding is guaranteed to spark debate over the scientific community since it contradicts all prior...
A group of researchers from Stanford University, MIT and the Toyota Research Institute have used AI to radically accelerate the time necessary to test and optimally charge batteries for electric vehicles (EVs). As recently reported in Nature, Stanford academics Stefano Ermon and William Chueh sought ways to charge an EV battery more quickly while...
Doctors in Australia have intervened following a guy became constipated he was given migraines in one by his matter.
