Crowdsourced Algorithms Predict Epileptic SeizuresNews
A study by University of Melbourne researchers reveals clinically relevant epileptic seizure prediction is possible in a wider range of patients than previously thought, thanks to the crowdsourcing of more than 10 000 algorithms worldwide.
Bioinformatics Tools Uncover Childhood Seizure CauseNews
Early childhood seizures result from a rare disease that begin in the first months of life. Researchers at University of Utah Health have developed high-tech tools to uncover the genetic cause of the most difficult to diagnose cases.

Robots Can Better Influence Kids' OpinionsNews
Young children are significantly more likely than adults to have their opinions and decisions influenced by robots, according to new research. The study compared how adults and children respond to an identical task when in the presence of both their peers and humanoid robots.Read more
Team Work Helps Overcome Environmental ChallengesArticle
We spoke to Andrew Howley from Adventure Scientists,a pioneering not-for-profit organization that seeks to unite skilled adventurers with scientists keen to receive valuable data from remote areas, to learn more about the initiative and the impact their projects are having in the scientific community and beyond.Read more
Data Mining Techniques: From Preprocessing to PredictionArticle
If you work in science, chances are you spend upwards of 50% of your time analyzing data in one form or another.However, it's easy to get lost when it comes to the question of what techniques to apply to what data. This is where data mining comes in - put broadly, data mining is the utilization of statistical techniques to discover patterns or associations in the datasets you have. Here we provide an overview of the critical steps you'll need to get the most out of your data analysis pipeline.
One-Way vs Two-Way ANOVA: Differences, Assumptions and HypothesesArticle
A key statistical test in research fields including biology, economics and psychology, Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) is very useful for analyzing datasets. It allows comparisons to be made between three or more groups of data. Here, we summarize the key differences between these two tests, including the assumptions and hypotheses that must be made about each type of test.Read more
UPS Ensures a Stable Outlook for Diamond Light SourceArticle
Diamond Light Source is the UK's national synchrotron facility and is used by over 7,000 researchers from both academia and industry to conduct essential experiments that keep the UK at the forefront of scientific research. Due to the sensitive nature of the equipment, it is therefore imperative that a stable power supply is maintained to the equipment.Read more
Biosafety and the Agents of DoomArticle
To combat harmful pathogens it is vitally important that scientists have facilities available that enable them to work on them safely. These facilities should prevent the operator from becoming infected with the agent they are working with and prevent the organism from escaping the laboratory setting and potentially initiating new outbreaks of disease.
Why are the Life Sciences Lagging in AI Development?Article
A recent survey conducted by not-for-profit group The Pistoia Alliance highlighted that nearly three-quarters of life science professionals interviewed think that their sector is lagging behind other industries in the development of AI. We discuss the survey results, what they mean for the life sciences field, and how the field can speed up AI development with Dr Nick Lynch, a consultant at the Pistoia Alliance.Read more
