AI Classification of Blood Cells Reaches Level of Human ExpertsNews
For the first time, researchers show that deep learning algorithms perform similar to human experts when classifying blood samples from patients suffering from acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Their proof of concept study paves the way for an automated, standardized and on-hand sample analysis in the near future.READ MORE
Reverse-engineered Simulations Could Power New Scientific DiscoveriesNews
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
A combination of mass spectrometry and a novel computational tool is more accurately identifying the molecular signs of cancer likely to be presented to helper T cells, which stimulate and orchestrate the immune response to tumors and infectious agents.READ MORE
A novel technique would allow organizations to non-destructively scan computer chips to ensure that they haven’t been altered and that they are manufactured to design specifications without error.READ MORE
Researchers have come up with a long-sought after algorithm, called the inverse chirp z-transform (ICZT).READ MORE
Researchers have built what they are calling "the world's most efficient single-photon source", an innovation that represent a huge advance in quantum information science.READ MORE
Electrical engineers at Duke University have devised a fully print-in-place technique for electronics that is gentle enough to work on delicate surfaces including paper and human skin. The advance could enable technologies such as high-adhesion, embedded electronic tattoos and bandages tricked out with patient-specific biosensors.
Researchers have created a prototype smartphone app, designed to help parents detect early signs of various eye diseases in their children.READ MORE
Institute of Cancer Research Scientists are working with a biotech company specializing in artificial intelligence to discover new ways of treating diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma – a brain cancer in children.READ MORE
Researchers at Duke University have devised a machine learning approach to model biological circuits in engineered bacteria.
The cryptocurrency Bitcoin is limited by its astronomical electricity consumption and outsized carbon footprint. Inventing a nearly zero-energy alternative sounds too good to be true, but researchers at EPFL say they have achieved just that , by using a new minimalist approach.
