Quanta Magazine published an interesting article on the new frontiers of graph theory within computer science where big data is starting the stretch the capabilities of regular graphs in favour of, in some circumstances, hyper-graphs and higher order interactions to better model and analyse relationships within the highly connected data.

The acoustic hailing and disruption (AHAD) device can also project sound at a wall so that it seem the sound originates from the wall.
