  • STEAM: Spike Time Encoded Addressable Memory

    September 22, 2017

    Computing architectures are on the cusp of a fundamental shift towards concurrency, as sequential models struggle to process large amounts of data in real time [1]. Alongside this shift, neural-inspired computing architectures designed to operate within size, weight, and power, or SwaP, constrained environments, have begun to emerge. Such massively parallel...

  • New Army models predict number of cyberattacks that pierce company networks

    September 19, 2017

    ADELPHI, Md. (Sept. 20, 2017) -- A new study from the U.S. Army Research Laboratory presents evidence that the number of cyber intrusions can be predicted, particularly when analysts are already observing activities on a company or government organization's computer network. Researchers say new models that predict the number of intrusions would be of significant...

  • Army scientists discover power in urine

    September 12, 2017

    ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. (Sept. 12, 2017) -- Scientists at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory observed an unexpected result when combining urine with a newly engineered nano-powder based on aluminum. It instantly releases hydrogen from the urine at much higher rate than with ordinary water. The research team announced earlier this summer that a nano-galvanic...
