Simplifying quantum systems
Simplifying quantum systems
If only it were less prone to error, quantum physics might already be giving us instant solutions to seemingly unsolvable problems. researchers are therefore working to develop systems that are more robust. In crude terms, our digitally driven information society is based on a simple binary opposition: 0 or 1.

AI standards in biomedical research
Guidelines published , to ensure quality and reproducibility of predictive methods An international group of scientists, including the ELIXIR Machine Learning Focus Group , developed a set of guidelines for better reporting standards for AI methods aiming to classify biomedical data. Examples of such methods are machine learning predictors that try to identify, based on genetic and other data, whether someone suffers from a particular rare disease or predictive methods that aim to identify the drug to which a cancer patient would respond best.

Using video for the early detection of autism
Using video for the early detection of autism
Using artificial intelligence, a team from the UNIGE has developed a device for the early detection of autism spectrum disorder in children. Individuals affected by autism spectrum disorder often present communication issues and difficulties in social interactions. Although very frequent, this disorder is challenging to diagnose before the age of five.

Stretchy robot worms could inch their way into new tech applications
Super-stretchy wormlike robots capable of 'feeling' their surroundings could find applications in industry and prosthetics, scientists say. A team of engineers from the University of Glasgow have developed robots with forms of motion inspired by the movements of inchworms and earthworms. The researchers hope that their breakthrough could lead to a new generation of robots capable of autonomously exploring difficult-to-reach places.

Way to check that quantum computers return accurate answers
Way to check that quantum computers return accurate answers
Quantum computers become ever more powerful, but how can we be sure that the answers they return are accurate? A team of physicists from Vienna, Innsbruck, Oxford, and Singapore solves this problem by letting quantum computers check each other. Quantum computers are advancing at a rapid pace and are already starting to push the limits of the world's largest supercomputers.

Using machine learning to understand complex auctions
New AI algorithm as a tool for economists Using a new machine learning algorithm, a team at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has succeeded in analyzing complex markets and their equilibrium strategies. Until now, such analyses were limited to very simple auction markets. The new numerical method opens up new possibilities for economic theory and new applications as in wireless spectrum auctions, among others.

Machine learning links material composition and performance in catalysts
Machine learning links material composition and performance in catalysts
In a finding that could help pave the way toward cleaner fuels and a more sustainable chemical industry, researchers at the University of Michigan have used machine learning to predict how the compositions of metal alloys and metal oxides affect their electronic structures. The electronic structure is key to understanding how the material will perform as a mediator, or catalyst, of chemical reactions.

LiftPose3D: Turning 2D images into 3D models
LiftPose3D: Turning 2D images into 3D models
Scientists have developed a deep learning-based method called LiftPose3D, which can reconstruct 3D animal poses using only 2D poses from one camera. This method will have impact in neuroscience and bioinspired robotics. "When people perform experiments in neuroscience they have to make precise measurements of behavior," says Professor Pavan Ramdya at EPFL's School of Life Sciences, who led the study.

CMU Computer Scientists Use Algorithm To Innovate Roots of Democracy
Carnegie Mellon University When 30 Michiganders convened last fall to draw up recommendations for tackling COVID-19, an algorithm developed in part by Carnegie Mellon University computer scientists helped bring them together. The Citizens' Panel on COVID-19 , organized in Michigan by the nonprofit of by for , is an example of a citizens' assembly - a political instrument with roots in ancient Greece that is experiencing a modern-day resurgence.

'Likes' and 'shares' teach people to express more outrage online
’Likes’ and ’shares’ teach people to express more outrage online
Social media platforms like Twitter amplify expressions of moral outrage over time because users learn such language gets rewarded with an increased number of "likes" and "shares," a new Yale University study shows. And these rewards had the greatest influence on users connected with politically moderate networks.

Do You Hear What I Hear? A Cyberattack
Carnegie Mellon University Cybersecurity analysts deal with enormous amounts of data, especially when monitoring network traffic. Printed out, a single day's worth of network traffic may rival a thick phonebook. Detecting an abnormality is like finding a needle in a haystack. "It's an ocean of data," said Yang Cai (left), a senior systems scientist in Carnegie Mellon University's CyLab.
