Computer science is an expanding research field driven by emerging application domains and improving hardware and software that eliminate old bottlenecks even as they create new challenges and opportunities for Computer Science research.
Trend analysis has long been researched and applied to many types of datasets, from medical to weather to stock markets.
With the advent of semiconductor technology in the 21st century & the development of transistor by William Shockley, John Bardeen & Walter Brattain in the year 1947,semiconductor technology has resulted a phenomenal growth in the field of integrated chips segregating its deep impact on the various diversified fields of engineering, prominent among which is Computer Science which is the science of web & the art of interfacing the hardware & software of any system or machine which somewhere resembles the system of human body.
Over the years, computer chips have gotten smaller, the credit goes to advances in materials science and manufacturing technologies. Researchers of DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have propounded this march of progress by intending to double the no. of transistors on a microprocessor chip roughly every two years, which is called Moore's Law. But there's one component of the chip-making process in need of an overhaul if Moore's law is to continue: the chemical mixture called photoresist. In a bid to continue decreasing transistor size while increasing computation and energy efficiency, chip-maker Intel has partnered with researchers to design an entirely new kind of resist.
In a similar research as mentioned above, researchers of Georgia Institute of Technology have proposed that with the help of a smart tablet and Angry Birds, children can now do something typically reserved for engineers and computer scientists: program a robot to learn new skills. The project is designed to serve as a rehabilitation tool to help kids with disabilities
In a different innovation at DOE/SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, Scientists have found a way to estimate uncertainties in computer calculations that are widely used to speed the search for new materials for industry, electronics, energy, drug design and a host of other applications. The technique should quickly be adopted in studies that produce some 30,000 scientific papers per year.
Elaborating this context further, scientists of Eindhoven University of Technology have proposed a technology to Speed up data storage by a thousand times with 'spin current' phenomena where an ultra-fast laser pulse is used to generate a flow of electrons in a material with all having the same spin. The resulting 'spin current' changes the magnetic properties of the material thus enhancing the storage capacity of hard disks to 1-4TB.
Latest technological advancements have taken place in the past & would continue to take place which at par are out of access unless such innovations keep publicizing in different journals, papers, citations, manuscripts & articles for their ease of human access for the benevolence of mankind.
