Northwestern University scientists have connected 250 years of organic chemical knowledge into one giant computer network -- a chemical Google on steroids.

"I realized that if we could link all the known chemical compounds and reactions between them into one giant network, we could create not only a new repository of chemical methods but an entirely new knowledge platform where each chemical reaction ever performed and each compound ever made would give rise to a collective 'chemical brain,'" said Bartosz A. Grzybowski, who led the work. "The brain then could be searched and analyzed with algorithms akin to those used in Google or telecom networks."

Code tracks crime, rumours back to source

Swiss researchers have developed software that can pinpoint the source of a message from a small network sample. With many beneficial applications, "...the maths could also be harnessed by advertisers specialising in so-called viral online marketing campaigns...".
