Quantum Physics
Holography entangles quantum physics with gravity
Spacetime geometry, and therefore gravity, emerges from quantum entanglement, analyses using tensor networks show.

Quantum Physics
Tensor networks get entangled with quantum gravity
Using tensors to describe quantum entanglement shows promise as a way to understand gravity.

Tech
To have a sound mind, a brain needs a body
Replicating human intelligence in robots requires the right materials for brainbodyenvironment interactions.

Health & Medicine
Evidencebased medicine actually isn’t
Demands for evidencebased medicine confront the contradiction that much of the evidence is worthless or skewed.

Science & Society

Nine mathematical innovations that rank right up there with logarithms.

Science & Society
Quantum connection could revitalize superstrings
Status of superstrings could be elevated by their ability to explain the mysterious rules of quantum mechanics.

Science & Society
Logarithms celebrate their 400th birthday
Four centuries ago, John Napier provided human calculators the timesaving gift of logarithms.

Quantum Physics
You shouldn’t try to pigeonhole quantum physics
A quantum analysis shows a way to violate math’s pigeonhole principle, by allowing three particles in two boxes with no two in the same box.

Quantum Physics
Quantum math makes human irrationality more sensible
Vagaries of human decision making make sense if quantum math describes the way the brain works.

Math
Scientists’ grasp of confidence intervals doesn’t inspire confidence
Confidence intervals are often misrepresented and are commonly misunderstood, even by researchers.

Life
Life began when algorithms took control
Digital storage of molecular information is the key to defining life and understanding its origin, astrobiologists say.

Particle Physics
It’s almost time to get to know the Higgs boson better
The next run of particle collisions at the Large Hadron collider will examine details about how the Higgs boson interacts with other particles to search for clues to new physics.
