Digital Signal Processing - Now in Living Cells!

Synthetic biologists designed a system for engineering cells that respond digitally to analog signals. Cells are pre-programmed to produce transcriptional protein components (top left) in proportion to the strength of an incoming signal. Upon reaching a critical concentration, components self-assemble (top right) into a protein complex that initiates transcription of a pre-programmed target gene. The more modules a self-assembled transcription complex contains (bottom, left to right), the more sharply it responds to the critical threshold. Credit: Rice University

New Framework Enhances Neural Network Performance

News

North Carolina State University researchers have developed a new framework for building deep neural networks via grammar-guided network generators. In experimental testing, the new networks - called AOGNets - have outperformed existing state-of-the-art frameworks, including the widely-used ResNet and DenseNet systems, in visual recognition tasks.
