  • Researchers devise approach to reduce biases in...
    on February 14, 2020 at 3:52 pm

    Addressing problems of bias in artificial intelligence, computer scientists have developed methods to obtain fairer data sets containing images of people. The researchers propose improvements to ImageNet, a database of more than 14 million images that has played a key role in advancing computer […]

  • Artificial intelligence finds disease-related...
    on February 13, 2020 at 6:26 pm

    An artificial neural network can reveal patterns in huge amounts of gene expression data, and discover groups of disease-related genes. The scientists hope that the new method can eventually be applied within precision medicine and individualized treatment.

  • Computer-based weather forecast: New algorithm...
    on February 13, 2020 at 5:42 pm

    The exponential growth in computer processing power seen over the past 60 years may soon come to a halt. Complex systems such as those used in weather forecast, for example, require high computing capacities, but the costs for running supercomputers to process large quantities of data can become a […]

  • Artificial atoms create stable qubits for quantum...
    on February 11, 2020 at 2:18 pm

    Quantum computing researchers have made improved qubits by exploiting concepts from high school chemistry.

  • New robot does superior job sampling blood
    on February 6, 2020 at 6:23 pm

    In the future, robots could take blood samples, benefiting patients and healthcare workers alike. A team has created a blood-sampling robot that performed as well or better than people, according to the first human clinical trial of an automated blood drawing and testing device.

  • Improving AI's ability to identify students who...
    on February 5, 2020 at 6:24 pm

    Researchers have designed an artificial intelligence (AI) model that is better able to predict how much students are learning in educational games. The improved model makes use of an AI training concept called multi-task learning, and could be used to improve both instruction and learning outcomes.

  • Deep learning accurately forecasts heat waves,...
    on February 4, 2020 at 4:25 pm

    Using an advanced form of deep learning, researchers created a computer system that learned how to accurately predict extreme weather events, like heat waves, up to five days in advance using minimal information about current weather conditions. Ironically, the self-learning 'capsule neural […]

    on January 30, 2020 at 1:16 pm

    Just when it seemed like robots couldn't get any cooler, researchers have created a soft robot muscle that can regulate its temperature through sweating.

  • How moon jellyfish get about
    on January 23, 2020 at 2:58 pm

    With their translucent bells, moon jellyfish (Aurelia aurita) move around the oceans in a very efficient way. Scientists have now used a mathematical model to investigate how these cnidarians manage to use their neural networks to control their locomotion even when they are injured. The results may […]

  • The way you dance is unique, and computers can...
    on January 17, 2020 at 3:47 pm

    Nearly everyone responds to music with movement, whether through subtle toe-tapping or an all-out boogie. A recent discovery shows that our dance style is almost always the same, regardless of the type of music, and a computer can identify the dancer with astounding accuracy.
