Fender or Fraud? Digital Simulations Mimic Guitar AmplifiersNews
A new study demonstrates that digital simulations of guitar amplifiers can sound just like the real thing. The implications are that as the software models continue to improve, they can replace traditional analogue guitar amplifiers, which are bulky, fragile and expensive.
A new study suggests that special memory can become distorted when patterns of grid cells in the brain are irregular.READ MORE
Mobile apps that work with Bluetooth devices have an inherent design flaw that makes them vulnerable to hacking, new research has found.
New research investigates if virtual reality could be a useful expressive tool for art therapy.READ MORE
A new study has achieved exaflop performance on the Summit supercomputer with a deep learning application used to model subsurface flow in the study of nuclear waste remediation at a site in Washington with tens of millions of gallons of radioactive and chemical waste in large underground tanks.READ MORE
What does a simulation tell us? It's a question asked across many fields, such as epidemiology and climate science. Probabilistic programming offers a solution –essentially reverse-engineering the simulation – but this is a complex, computing power-heavy technique. A new project, capable of controlling existing simulators and running at large-scale on HPC platforms, could revolutionize the field.READ MORE
Of the four building blocks of life – proteins, lipids, nucleic acids and glycans (carbohydrates) – the latter have received the least attention from researchers. This may be about to change as a new project, GlyGen, launches to help researchers answer glycan-related questions using big data.READ MORE
