Fingerprint Test Can Differentiate Those Who Have Taken or Handled CocaineNews
An experimental fingerprint detection approach can identify traces of cocaine on human skin, even after someone has washed their hands – and the test is also smart enough to tell whether an individual has actually consumed the class A drug, or simply handled it.READ MORE
Struggling To Sleep? Just Smell Your Partner's ClothesNews
The scent of a romantic partner can improve sleep, suggests new psychology research from the University of British Columbia.
Millions of Methane Hotspots Detected in ArcticNews
Scientists used planes equipped with an airborne visible infrared imaging spectrometer to fly over 20,000 square miles of the Arctic landscape in the hope of detecting potentially harmful methane hotspots. The instrument did not disappoint.READ MORE
Can We Make AI Sustainable?News
A research group has developed a new computing circuit that can execute advanced operations, typical of neural networks for artificial intelligence, in one single operation. The circuit paves the way for a new generation of artificial intelligence computing accelerators that are more energy efficient and more sustainable on a global scale.READ MORE
Researchers have designed an artificial intelligence (AI) model that is better able to predict how much students are learning in educational games. The improved model makes use of an AI training concept called multi-task learning, and could be used to improve both instruction and learning outcomes.
Researchers have developed a new artificial intelligence that could provide a reliable way of spotting causation amongst masses of correlating data.READ MORE
The severity of epilepsy-related muscle spasms can be reliably estimated with artificial intelligence, according to a recent study.READ MORE
New research indicates that a single dose of the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine is as effective as multiple doses for preventing preinvasive cervical disease, which can later develop into cervical cancer.READ MORE
Scientists forced lab-grown cancer cells to evolve more rapidly than usual using a molecule called APOBEC3B, which is often used by tumors to drive rapid genetic change and drug resistance. They found that these highly mutated cells could be used to create a vaccine, which boosted the effects of immunotherapy – curing mice with a variety of otherwise treatment-resistant tumors.READ MORE
A new study suggests that indole, a natural compound found in many well-known and widely consumed vegetables, can also be used to fight fatty liver disease.READ MORE
Engineers have created a deep learning computer system that taught itself to accurately predict extreme weather events up to five days in advance using minimal information about current weather conditions.READ MORE
