Overcoming challenges with automatic video colourisation

From social media to cinema, books to television series, it is hard to find a medium that is not touched by some form of colourisation. But, it is not a simple process. It has been largely manual and time consuming; it is meticulous work, which requires a keen eye for detail. From a technical perspective, it is an ill-posed problem. There are multiple plausible colourisations for any given black and white picture, write Rory Ward and John Breslin.

Too much information? Not with this latest data science technique

A new measure can help scientists decide which estimation method to use when modelling a particular data problem.

Self-driving cars powered by PCs could be a huge global carbon emitter

Study shows that if autonomous vehicles are widely adopted, hardware efficiency will need to advance rapidly to keep computing-related emissions in check.

Utilising new quantum computing architecture to link up large-scale devices

Researchers have demonstrated directional photon emission, the first step towards extensible quantum interconnects.

How engineers have come up with a new type of shape-memory material

The ceramic-based material could be used for highly efficient actuators within aircraft or for other uses, with minimal moving parts.

Materials science engineers focus on developing new material for computer chips

Members of a multifunctional thin film research group have published two landmark studies that explain how to engineer and enhance the stability of ferroelectric hafnium oxides, which are compatible with mainstream semiconductors. Their research advances ambitions in the semiconductor industry to save energy in computing by co-locating computation and memory elements in an integrated circuit.
