Measuring AI's Ability to Learn is Harder Than We ThoughtNews
Organizations looking to benefit from the artificial intelligence (AI) revolution should be cautious about putting all their eggs in one basket, a study published in Nature Machine Intelligence has found. Researchers found that contrary to conventional wisdom, there can be no exact method for deciding whether a given problem may be successfully solved by machine learning tools.READ MORE
HIV self-testing strategies have been recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) since 2016, as they empower people to find out HIV their status at their convenience.

An innovative approach has been used to identify thousands of antibiotic resistance genes found in bacteria that inhabit the human gut.READ MORE
Human skin contains sensitive nerve cells that detect pressure, temperature and other sensations that allow tactile interactions with the environment. To help robots and prosthetic devices attain these abilities, scientists are trying to develop electronic skins. Now, a new method creates an ultrathin, stretchable electronic skin, which could be used for a variety of human-machine interactions.READ MORE
This study lends weight to the argument for using mobile apps for routine measurements and clinical trials, and supports calls by the Royal College of Physicians for greater use of already available technology in healthcare
Searching through the mountains of published cancer research could be made easier for scientists, thanks to a new AI system. The system, called LION LBD has been designed to assist scientists in the search for cancer-related discoveries.
Researchers have determined the structure of an enzyme critical for the removal of excess cholesterol from the body, and bound to a chemical that boosts its activity, paving the way for potential new therapeutics to treat heart and kidney failure.READ MORE
Conservation scientists and statisticians at Colorado State University have teamed up to solve a key problem for the study of sensitive behaviors like poaching, harassment, bribery, and drug use.
University of Alberta psychologists have identified what they say are the 10 funniest words in the English language. The researchers determined that there are two main kinds of predictors of funniness in words: those related to the form of the word and those related to its meaning.
