The same artificial intelligence technique typically used in facial recognition systems could help improve prediction of hailstorms and their severity, according to a new study from the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).
EPFL scientists are investigating new ways to provide visual signals to the blind by directly stimulating the optic nerve. Their preliminary study uses a new type of neural electrode and provides distinct signals.
Inspired by Wall Street financial theories used to invest in the stock market, MIT and Microsoft researchers developed a 'risk-aware' model that improves the performance of cloud-computing infrastructure used across the globe.
Atomically thin materials developed by Stanford researchers could create heat-shields for cell phones or laptops that would protect people and temperature-sensitive components and make future electronic gadgets even more compact.
Machine learning algorithms can sometimes do a better job with a little help from human expertise, at least in the field of materials science.
Research scientists representing Regenstrief Institute, Indiana University School of Medicine and IU Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health at IUPUI are joining -- and in some cases leading -- the global health conversation at the 17th World Congress of Medical and Health Informatics (MedInfo).
A new clinical model developed by Cornell Tech researchers aims to respond systematically and effectively to the growing array of digital threats against victims of intimate partner violence. Working with the New York City Mayor's Office to End Domestic and Gender-Based Violence, the researchers created and piloted a questionnaire, a spyware scanning tool and a diagram for assessing clients' digital footprints.
A group of researchers from UCPH FOOD have figured out how to use deep learning to speed up the analysis of gas chromatographic data. Because this type of analysis is used in many parts of society, the new method will have a major impact on quality, efficiency and cost when examining various data -- from blood tests, to the fermentation of cheese.
According to Adar Ovadya, a master's student in BGU's Department of Software and Information Systems Engineering, 'all of the routers we surveyed regardless of brand or price point were vulnerable to at least some cross-network communication once we used specially crafted network packets. A hardware-based solution seems to be the safest approach to guaranteeing isolation between secure and non-secure network devices.'
Newly discovered properties in the compound uranium ditelluride show that it could prove highly resistant to one of the nemeses of quantum computer development -- the difficulty with making such a computer's memory storage switches, called qubits, function long enough to finish a computation before losing the delicate physical relationship that allows them to operate as a group. This relationship, called quantum coherence, is hard to maintain because of disturbances from the surrounding world.
