>A team of scientists has found a way to adapt the feedback process that occurs when data travels through fiber and disperses in a phenomenon known as Brillouin scattering. “Not only do we see immense technological applications, but also the wealth of pure scientific investigations that are made possible,” says Gaurav Bahl, a professor of mechanical science and engineering at Illinois.

A Silicon Valley start-up, Cerebras, unveiled what it claims is the largest computer chip ever built. The engineers behind the chip believe it can be used in giant data centers and help accelerate the progress of artificial intelligence. “It is not that people have not been able to build this kind of a chip,” says Rakesh Kumar, a professor at Illinois who is also exploring large chips for A.I. “The problem is that they have not been able to build one that is commercially feasible.

You might think that magnetism is as simple as a north pole and a south pole attracting each other. Yet this phenomenon, silently omnipresent in our daily life, still isn’t completely understood, as evidenced by a new study from Illinois physicists. Their discovery about magnetism could lead to faster and more energy efficient computer memory.
