Color Linguistics Survey Finds Key Similarities Between Cultures
Researchers have developed an algorithm capable of inferring a culture’s communicative needs, the need to talk about certain colors, using previously collected data from 130 diverse languages.
Deep Learning Enhances Cancer Diagnostic Tools
Yi “Edwin” Sun, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign has investigated how deep learning approaches can be exploited to make polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography, more cost-effective and better equipped to diagnose cancer in biological tissues.
Online Tool Helps Residents Reduce Traffic-Related Air Pollution Impact
Researchers have released a new online tool to help schools, hospitals and residents understand and reduce the impact of traffic-related air pollution.
No Association Between Nuts and Weight Gain
Researchers have found that nuts do not contribute to weight gain. It provides further evidence that long-standing concerns about nuts and weight gain – often found in popular media and clinical nutrition guidelines – are unwarranted.
AI Identifies New Drug Combo for Aggressive Childhood Brain Cancer
Scientists have used tools enhanced with AI to successfully propose a new combination of drugs for use against an incurable childhood brain cancer.
Human Learning Can Be Mimicked in Synthetic Matter
Rutgers researchers and their collaborators have found that learning, a universal feature of intelligence in living beings, can be mimicked in synthetic matter, a discovery that in turn could inspire new algorithms for artificial intelligence (AI).
Earth's Crust Is Being Warped as Polar Ice Melts
The melting of polar ice is not only shifting the levels of our oceans, it is changing the planet Earth itself. As glacial ice from Greenland, Antarctica, and the Arctic Islands melts, Earth’s crust beneath these land masses warps, an impact that can be measured hundreds and perhaps thousands of miles away.
Reservoir Computing Advances Could Make for More Accurate Weather Forecasts
Researchers have found a way to make reservoir computing work between 33 and a million times faster, with significantly fewer computing resources and less data input needed.
New Machine Learning Method Analyzes Complex Scientific Data of Proteins
NMR spectrometers allow scientists to characterize the structure of molecules, such as proteins, but it can take highly skilled human experts a significant amount of time to analyze that data. This new machine learning method can analyze the data much more quickly and just as accurately.
Towards a Unified Theory for DNA Folding
Researchers have used statistical mechanics to explore the phenomenon of so-called expression waves of gene regulation.
