Researchers demonstrated the mathematical impossibility of representing social networks and other complex networks using popular methods of ‘low-dimensional embeddings.’ Models and algorithms for analyzing complex networks are widely used in research and affect society at large through their applications in online social networks, search engines, and recommender systems. According to […]

Bomb craters on Earth have similarities to meteor craters on the moon.

Man Versus Machine: Can AI Do Science? Over the last few decades, machine learning has revolutionized many sectors of society, with machines learning to drive cars, identify tumors and play chess – often surpassing their human counterparts. Now, a team of scientists based at the Okinawa Institute of Science and […]

MIT researchers have used a neural network to identify low-frequency seismic waves hidden in earthquake data. The technique may help scientists more accurately map the Earth’s interior. Credit: Christine Daniloff, MIT Machine learning technique may help scientists more accurately map vast underground geologic structures. Over the last century, scientists have […]

An automated machine-learning model developed by MIT researchers significantly outperforms human Wall Street analysts in predicting quarterly business sales. Using limited data, this automated machine-learning system predicts a company’s quarterly sales. Knowing a company’s true sales can help determine its value. Investors, for instance, often employ financial analysts to predict […]
