You Can Now Wear a Nanoscale Archive of 1,000 Languages Around Your Neck

The future depends on how well we’ve preserved the past. Tomorrow’s breakthroughs are built from today’s innovation. To continue the trend, we must keep preserving information properly for future generations. If we leave indecipherable records, important knowledge is trapped in plain sight. While we’ve made progress, the dream of completely preserving knowledge across generations escapes […]

How We Can Save Our History One Smartphone at a Time

Our lives today are increasingly digital, so why isn’t our old memorabilia? As we use smartphones and the cloud more often, our pre-digital personal history is falling to pieces, likely unorganized, poorly labeled or barely even accessible. Family photographs, in particular, are some of the most cherished yet least cared for objects in our daily lives. As this paradox shows, while digital technologies are amplifying some areas of our lives—others are completely left in the… read more

This Droplet of DNA Could Store 600 Smartphones Worth of Retrievable Data

To most of us, DNA stores the code of all living things. But according to computer scientists, DNA may one day become the preferential storage medium for all things. Earlier this month, a team of scientists at the University of Washington published a paper describing one of the first complete DNA storage systems that encodes, stores and retrieves digital images using strings of synthetic DNA molecules. This isn’t the first attempt at using the code of life to store digital data, but it’s certainly unique. Here’s the kicker: the system supports random access — selectively reading only a desired file… read more

Have We Finally Achieved Information Immortality?

The way information is stored and shared may now be forever changed thanks to a recent major five-dimensional (5D) digital data recording and retrieval announcement. Scientists from the University of Southampton’s Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) have successfully demonstrated the longest-lasting and most versatile data storage method to date. Data is stored on a small nanostructured glass disc made of fused quartz and written using ultra-fast femtosecond laser technology. Each disc holds 360TB (terabytes) of data for up to 13.8 billion years—roughly the current age of the universe—at 190°C (374°F) or near eternity at room temperature. The molecular structure of the… read more
