The project will last three years and will be carried out […]

CIMON will assist astronauts on the International Space Station. Credit: NASA/Kim Shiflett, CC BY Artificial intelligence has been making waves in recent years, enabling us to solve problems faster than traditional computing could ever allow. Recently, for example, Google’s artificial intelligence subsidiary DeepMind developed AlphaFold2, a program which solved the protein-folding problem. […]

MIT researchers have developed an automated way to design customized hardware, or “brains,” that speeds up a robot’s operation. A new system devises hardware architectures to hasten robots’ response time. Contemporary robots can move quickly. “The motors are fast, and they’re powerful,” says Sabrina Neuman. Yet in complex situations, like interactions with […]

New technology from Stanford scientists finds long-hidden quakes, and possible clues about how earthquakes evolve. Tiny movements in Earth’s outermost layer may provide a Rosetta Stone for deciphering the physics and warning signs of big quakes. New algorithms that work a little like human vision are now detecting these long-hidden […]

Schematic representation of a processor for matrix multiplications which runs on light. Credit: University of Oxford The exponential growth of data traffic in our digital age poses some real challenges on processing power. And with the advent of machine learning and AI in, for example, self-driving vehicles and speech recognition, […]

Scientists at Freie Universität Berlin develop a deep learning method to solve a fundamental problem in quantum chemistry. A team of scientists at Freie Universität Berlin has developed an artificial intelligence (AI) method for calculating the ground state of the Schrödinger equation in quantum chemistry. The goal of quantum chemistry […]

A new machine learning algorithm trained only with real data has classified over 2,300 supernovae with over 80% accuracy. Artificial intelligence is classifying real supernova explosions without the traditional use of spectra, thanks to a team of astronomers at the Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian. The complete data sets […]

A new study applies machine learning to the fossil record to visualize life’s history, showing the impacts of major evolutionary events. This shows the long-term evolutionary and ecological impacts of major events of extinction and speciation. Colors represent the geological periods from the Tonian, starting 1 billion years ago, in […]

Switching points of the brain are simulated with magnetic waves, which are specifically generated and divided using nonlinear processes within microscopically small vortex discs. Credit: HZDR/Sahneweiß/H. Schultheiß Neural networks are some of the most important tools in artificial intelligence (AI): they mimic the operation of the human brain and can […]
