Math reveals unseen worlds of Star Wars
Math reveals unseen worlds of Star Wars
10.02.16 - Using a new computer program, EPFL researchers offer unusual insight into the universe of Star Wars, which includes more than 20,000 characters spread among 640 communities over a period of 36,000 years. Do you think you know all there is to know about Star Wars? You may change your mind after reading this article.

Robotically Driven System Could Reduce Cost of Drug Discovery
Researchers from Carnegie Mellon University have created the first robotically driven experimentation system to determine the effects of a large number of drugs on many proteins, reducing the number of necessary experiments by 70 percent. The model, presented in the journal eLife, uses an approach that could lead to accurate predictions of the interactions between novel drugs and their targets, helping to reduce the cost of drug discovery.

Search Technique Helps Researchers Find DNA Sequences in Minutes Rather Than Days
Database searches for DNA sequences that can take biologists and medical researchers days can now be completed in a matter of minutes, thanks to a new search method developed by computer scientists at Carnegie Mellon University. The method developed by Carl Kingsford, associate professor of computational biology , and Brad Solomon, a Ph.D.

Delivering the internet of the future - at the speed of light and open sourced
New research has found, for the first time, a scientific solution that enables future internet infrastructure to become completely open and programmable while carrying internet traffic at the speed of light. The research by High Performance Networks (HPN) group in the University of Bristol's Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering is published in the world's first scientific journal Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A .

New test could predict dementia risk during routine GP visits
New test could predict dementia risk during routine GP visits
It may be possible to assess the risk of developing dementia by analyzing information gathered during routine visits to the family doctor, according to research published in the open access journal BMC Medicine. Researchers from UCL have developed an algorithm that uses routinely collected data to predict a five-year risk of dementia as part of an NIHR-funded study.

The way you sound affects your mood
The way you sound affects your mood
Researchers have created a digital audio platform that can modify the emotional tone of people's voices while they are talking, to make them sound happier, sadder or more fearful. New results show that while listening to their altered voices, participants' emotional state change in accordance with the new emotion.

Can computer games improve the ability to study?
Can computer games improve the ability to study?
Computer-based games can have a beneficial effect on learning, according to ground-breaking new research from the University of Bristol. The brain-imaging study shows that - contrary to popular belief - technological game-playing can involve brain activity that positively supports learning. The research, with students at Bristol, is linked to a bigger classroom study which will involve 10,000 secondary school pupils across the UK - and for which participants are currently being recruited.
