23:28 Toward a cure for AIDS: Scientists set research agenda
CHICAGO (Reuters) - A team of global scientists has devised a strategy to find a cure for AIDS, an effort inspired by the remarkable story of a single U.S. patient named Timothy Ray Brown who was cured from the disease. Brown's treatment in Berlin involved the destruction of his immune system and a stem cell transplant from a donor with a rare genetic mutation that resists HIV infection. The procedure is too costly and too difficult to replicate on a large scale. ...

23:24 Indian scientists try to crack monsoon source code
NEW DELHI/BHUBANESHWAR (Reuters) - Scientists aided by supercomputers are trying to unravel one of Mother Nature's biggest mysteries -- the vagaries of the summer monsoon rains that bring life, and sometimes death, to India every year. In a first-of-its-kind project, Indian scientists aim to build computer models that would allow them to make a quantum leap in predicting the erratic movements of the monsoon. If successful, the impact would be life-changing in a country where 600 million people depend on farming for their livelihoods and where agriculture contributes 15 percent to the economy. ...

23:06 Department of Defense Maps Its Cloud StrategyThe Defense Department has released a cloud computing strategy all its own, aimed at moving current network applications from a duplicative, cumbersome and costly set of application silos to an end state designed to create a more agile, secure, and cost-effective service environment that can rapidly respond to changing needs.
Teri Takai, CIO at the Defense Department, said the government agency is moving to an enterprise cloud environment that provides tangible benefits across the department by supporting the delivery of the joint information environment, from the continental United States to the warfighter at the tactical edge.
Committed to the Cloud
"This strategy lays the groundwork, as part of the Joint Information Environment framework, for achieving cloud adoption within the department," Takai said. "It focuses on the creation of department core data centers, enterprise cloud infrastructure and sustainment of cloud services."
As part of the Defense Department's cloud computing strategy, the government has named the Defense Information Systems Agency as the enterprise cloud service broker to help maintain mission assurance and information interoperability within this new strategy.
"The Defense Department is committed to accelerating the adoption of cloud computing and providing a secure, resilient enterprise cloud environment," Takai said. "This strategy will align with all department-wide information technology efficiency initiatives, federal data center consolidation and cloud computing efforts. The result of the strategy will be improved mission effectiveness, increased IT efficiencies, and enhanced cyber security."
The Cloud Drumbeat
Charles King, principal analyst at Pund-IT, told us he's not surprised the Defense Department has developed a cloud computing strategy.
The MeriTalk Cloud Computing Exchange, a community of federal cloud leaders, estimates that federal agencies are already saving $5.5 billion a year via cloud implementations and that those savings could balloon to $12 billion as the cloud gains momentum in the federal government. MeriTalk also discovered that Defense Department...

22:24 Disorderly conduct: Probing the role of disorder in quantum coherenceA new experiment conducted at the Joint Quantum Institute (JQI) examines the relationship between quantum coherence, an important aspect of certain materials kept at low temperature, and the imperfections in those materials. These findings should be useful in forging a better understanding of disorder, and in turn in developing better quantum-based devices, such as superconducting magnets.
22:24 Neuroscience joins cryptography(Phys.org) -- Security experts are turning to cognitive psychology for fresh ideas on authentication. Hristo Bojinov of Stanford University and others on his team have a new authentication design based on the concept of implicit learning. Implicit learning refers to learning patterns without any conscious knowledge of the learned pattern. An example of this is riding a bicycle. One knows how to ride a bicycle, but cannot explain how. The technique involves, through a crafted computer game, delivering a secret password in the users brain without the user consciously knowing what the password is.
