Scientists Are Using AI to Painstakingly Assemble Single Atoms

  • Ever since scientists at IBM invented the scanning probe microscope some 35 years ago, researchers have used it to create designs both goofy and groundbreaking.
  • Wolkow has, in some form, worked to make single atom circuits for 30 years now—studying promising materials to death, tinkering with his microscope, and making incremental progress.
  • And publishing in ACS Nano on Wednesday, Wolkow’s research group has developed an automated method for sharpening the machine’s wire tip using machine learning.
  • But it’s boring work, says physics graduate student Sara Mueller of Ohio State University, who uses the machine to research properties of new materials.
  • Chemist Paul Ashby of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, who studies molecules with scanning probe microscopes and works on the machinery itself, says that the instrument has some significant hardware limitations.
  • And even if Wolkow doesn’t pull off his manufacturing vision, he’s making it easier for other researchers to use scanning probe microscopes.

Facebook Open Sources Katran Load Balancer, Details Network Provisioning Tool

  • In addition, it's offering details on the inner workings of the Zero Touch Provisioning tool it uses to help engineers automate much of the work required to build its backbone networks.
  • Not only is it the company initially behind the Open Compute Project, which shares the designs of data center products, its software developers have been willing to share the details of how the software they develop works, as it's done today with its provisioning tool, and have released much of their most important efforts as open source.
  • According to a blog written by Facebook production engineer Nikita Shirokov and software engineer Ranjeeth Dasineni, Katran was designed to address shortcoming in previous load balancing software the company had built, primarily from open source software, and had used for four years.
