Researchers have developed a micromachine that can perform different actions. The microrobots are magnetically programmed via nanomagnets contained within their components, before the various movements are controlled by magnetic fields. Such machines, which are only a few tens of micrometres across, could be used, for example, in the human body to perform small operations.READ MORE
Scientists have now produced a co-regulation map of the human proteome, which was able to capture relationships between proteins that do not physically interact or co-localize. This will enable the prediction and assignment of functions to uncharacterised human proteins.READ MORE
Random bit sequences are key ingredients of various tasks in modern life and especially in secure communication. In a new study researchers have determined that generating true random bit sequences, classical or quantum, is an impossible mission. Based on these findings, they have demonstrated a new method of classified secure communication.
Chemical analysis of blood samples, combined with an artificial intelligence program, could speed up the diagnosis of brain tumours.READ MORE
It can take years of birdwatching experience to tell one species from the next. But using an artificial intelligence technique called deep learning, Duke University researchers have trained a computer to identify up to 200 species of birds from just a photo.
Dartmouth engineering researchers have developed a new approach for detecting a speaker's intent to mislead. The approach's framework, which could be developed to extract opinion from fake news.READ MORE
Researchers have launched a new open-source database, aiming to make it easier to share datasets that reveal the function of genomic variants in health and disease.READ MORE
Researchers at the University of Washington have found that GEDmatch is vulnerable to multiple kinds of security risks. An adversary can use only a small number of comparisons to extract someone's sensitive genetic markers. A malicious user could also construct a fake genetic profile to impersonate someone's relative.READ MORE
Using the information theory, researchers at UNIGE aim to better understand the cancerous development of cells through a mathematical approach and propose innovative therapeutic strategies.READ MORE
Researchers have developed a new genomic analysis method for classifying and identifying all Yersinia strains and estimating their pathogenicity.READ MORE
