Bacterial nanopores open the future of data storage
Bioengineers at EPFL have developed a nanopore-based system that can read data encoded into synthetic macromolecules with higher accuracy and resolution than similar methods on the market. The system is also potentially cheaper and longer-lasting, and overcomes limitations that prevent us from moving away from conventional data storage devices that are rapidly maxing out in capacity and endurance.
Next-generation computer chip with two heads
EPFL engineers have developed a computer chip that combines two functions – logic operations and data storage – into a single architecture, paving the way to more efficient devices. Their technology is particularly promising for applications relying on artificial intelligence.
Aleksandra Radenovic, from the Balkans to Lake Geneva
Summer series: A calling for research. Aleksandra Radenovic, who heads the Laboratory of Nanoscale Biology in EPFL’s School of Engineering, spoke to us about her extraordinary life experience, which has made her into a researcher who values openness and close cooperation with her team.
