Measuring forces between atoms that don’t want to be measured
New research from the University of Melbourne shows that when it comes to measuring the force between two atoms - it may actually be hiding from you.
Stress testing algorithms
University of Melbourne academic Professor Kate Smith-Miles uses mathematical questions and algorithms to find the best way to making the world a better place.
So, you want to work in Quantum computing?
As the University of Melbourne joins the IBM Q Network, researchers, businesses and universities are already getting themselves quantum ready.
Decoding data to predict landslides
New software from the University of Melbourne can predict landslides two weeks before they happen, potentially predicting mine collapses and other disasters.
When computers make art
Artificial intelligence is making art that appears as good as that made by humans. A University of Melbourne mathematician and artist examines what is going on.
Using maths to assess blocked arteries
University of Melbourne researchers have used laser imaging to mathematically model the severity of artery blockages and now may be able to predict danger areas
How convincing is a Y-chromosome profile match?
Y chromosome profiles are used in sexual assault cases but can confuse juries; a new approach from the University of Melbourne will help clarify this evidence.
Using maths to map mines deep underground
Software, created by University of Melbourne researchers, takes its inspiration from microchips to design underground tunnel networks for the mining industry.
Life’s a drag, unless you live in a bubble
An international team led by the University of Melbourne has shown objects can sink in water with close to zero drag, proving an 18th century physics theory.
