Army researchers developed a novel computational model for gathering cognitive data that may be a game changer in the fields of neuroscience and econometrics, and has broad relevance to networked and multi-agent systems.
Researchers at Penn State designed an algorithm to train an adversarial bot, which was able to automatically discover and exploit weaknesses of master game bots driven by reinforcement learning algorithms.
"Flutter" is a complex oscillatory phenomenon that can destroy aircraft turbine blades and has historically been the cause of several plane accidents. Now, scientists at Tokyo University of Science and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency explore a novel approach that can be used to early detect the onset of flutter, solving one of the main problems that has been holding back the design of lighter and more efficient turbines.
Intelligent algorithms are used to create paintings, write poems, and compose music. According to a study by an international team of researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and the Center of Humans and Machines at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, whether people perceive artificial intelligence (AI) as the ingenious creator of art or simply another tool used by artists depends on how information about AI art is presented. The results were published in the journal iScience.
Researchers trained an AI to assess post-disaster building damage just by looking at aerial images of the aftermath.
If human societies don't sharply curb emissions of greenhouse gases, Greenland's rate of ice loss this century is likely to greatly outpace that of any century over the past 12,000 years, a new study concludes. Scientists say the results reiterate the need for countries around the world to take action now to reduce emissions, slow the decline of ice sheets, and mitigate sea level rise.
Skoltech researchers have proposed a fast and accurate numerical method of addressing the problem plaguing electroencephalography (EEG) studies that monitor the brain's electrical activity -- having to laboriously locate the source of EEG signal in the brain due to the low spatial resolution of this method.
The researchers at USC have made some discoveries about the network behind the Panama Papers, uncovering uniquely fragmented network behavior and transactions. This is vastly different from more traditional social or organizational networks, demonstrating why these systems of transactions and associations are so robust and difficult to infiltrate or take down
Smart cruise control, better human decisions. Michigan Tech engineers study how cars and trucks move cooperatively on the road, respond to each other's environmental sensors and react as a group to lessen traffic jams and protect the humans inside.
An international team of scientists has managed for the first time to observe the 'nutation' of spins in magnetic materials (the oscillations of their axis during precession). The measured nutation period was of the order of one picosecond. The discovery was published by Nature Physics
