Technique reveals whether models of patient risk are accurate
Technique reveals whether models of patient risk are accurate
Computer scientists' new method could help doctors avoid ineffective or unnecessarily risky treatments. After a patient has a heart attack or stroke, doctors often use risk models to help guide their treatment. These models can calculate a patient's risk of dying based on factors such as the patient's age, symptoms, and other characteristics.

Cameras see around corners in real time with deep learning
Cameras see around corners in real time with deep learning
Rice researchers, collaborators create system for fast imaging of hidden objects Imagine a camera that can see around corners. Researchers spent years figuring out how to use lasers to basically turn solid walls into mirrors. Now engineers from Rice University, Princeton University and Southern Methodist University have harnessed the power of a type of artificial intelligence known as deep learning to create a new laser-based system that captures detailed images of objects around corners in real time.

App uses voice analysis, AI to track wellness of people with mental illness
A new study finds that an interactive voice application using artificial intelligence is an effective way to monitor the well-being of people being treated for serious mental illness. Researchers from UCLA followed 47 people for up to 14 months using an application called MyCoachConnect. The data were collected from 2013 and 2015.

Artificial intelligence used to predict 3D structure of proteins
A deep learning system can predict the structure of a protein using its genetic sequence more accurately than any previous modelling system, according to a study by researchers at DeepMind and UCL. Nearly every function our body performs relies on proteins. Predicting the intricate 3D structure of a protein is important because its structure largely determines its function and, once the structure is known, scientists can develop drugs that target this unique shape.

Introducing the Human Screenome Project
Millions of screenshots sent from personal devices every five seconds will transform our understanding of everything from fake news to depression. As digital devices become ubiquitous in the world, so have concerns about the harmful effects of screen-related behaviors. Does screen time impair concentration, lead to anxiety or depression, hinder social behavior or curb our ability to tell fake from real news?

Quantum encryption realized under the sea
Quantum encryption realized under the sea
An international team of researchers from the Austrian Academy of Sciences and the University of Vienna established a quantum encrypted connection between Sicily and Malta via a submarine cable. The record distance of 192 kilometres was a further step in the development of a secure quantum internet.

How to verify that quantum chips are computing correctly
How to verify that quantum chips are computing correctly
A new method determines whether circuits are accurately executing complex operations that classical computers can't tackle. In a step toward practical quantum computing, researchers from MIT, Google, and elsewhere have designed a system that can verify when quantum chips have accurately performed complex computations that classical computers can't.

AI for #MeToo: Training Algorithms to Spot Online Trolls
Researchers at Caltech have demonstrated that machine-learning algorithms can monitor online social media conversations as they evolve, which could one day lead to an effective and automated way to spot online trolling. The project unites the labs of artificial intelligence (AI) researcher Anima Anandkumar , Bren Professor of Computing and Mathematical Sciences, and Michael Alvarez , professor of political science.

The giant in our stars
The giant in our stars
Interconnected stellar nurseries form the largest gaseous structure ever observed in the Milky Way galaxy. Astronomers of the University of Vienna and Harvard University have discovered a monolithic, wave-shaped gaseous structure - the largest ever seen in our galaxy - made up of interconnected stellar nurseries.

Cutting through fog with laser focus
Cutting through fog with laser focus
Research from The University of Queensland aimed at controlling light in scattering materials, such as fog or biological tissues, will benefit future biomedical imaging and telecommunications. Optics researchers Dr Mickael Mounaix and Dr Joel Carpenter have found a new way of controlling how light travels through different materials at different times using optical fibres.
