Google's 'CEO' image search gender bias hasn't really been fixed
Google’s ’CEO’ image search gender bias hasn’t really been fixed
We use Google's image search to help us understand the world around us. For example, a search about a certain profession, "truck driver” for instance, should yield images that show us a representative smattering of people who drive trucks for a living. But in 2015, University of Washington researchers found that when searching for a variety of occupations - including "CEO” - women were significantly underrepresented in the image results , and that these results can change searchers- worldviews.

What’s inside a black hole? U-M physicist uses quantum computing, machine learning to find out
Dude, what if everything around us was just... a hologram? The thing is, it could be-and a University of Michigan physicist is using quantum computing and machine learning to better understand the idea, called holographic duality. Holographic duality is a mathematical conjecture that connects theories of particles and their interactions with the theory of gravity.

New technique will improve the construction of ice roads and bridges
Sustainability of ice roads at risk due to climate change By A new study found that measuring the time it takes for a radar pulse to travel from a satellite to the sea surface and back again can reveal the thickness of river ice and dates when it is safe to travel on ice roads and bridges in arctic regions.

New computer vision system designed to analyse cells in microscopy videos
New computer vision system designed to analyse cells in microscopy videos
Researchers at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) have developed a system based on computer vision techniques that allows automatic analysis of biomedical videos captured by microscopy in order to characterise and describe the behaviour of the cells that appear in the images. These new techniques developed by the UC3M engineering team have been used for measurements on living tissues, in research carried out with scientists from the National Centre for Cardiovascular Research (CNIC in its Spanish acronym).

Satellite Designed at CMU Launches into Low-Earth Orbit
The Tartan-Artibeus-1 Satellite, developed at Carnegie Mellon University, was aboard SpaceX's successful Falcon 9 launch of Transporter-3 to orbit on Jan. It was deployed to low-Earth orbit as part of the Alba Unicorn constellation. "Our lab developed the Tartan-Artibeus-1 Satellite, which is what we believe to be the world's first batteryless PocketQube nanosatellite," said Brandon Lucia , an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering.

Precision Rehabilitation May Prevent Osteoarthritis
Athletes and sports fans know that a torn ACL knocks a player out of the game, requires surgical repair and involves a long recovery. But for many injured athletes, being temporarily sidelined is only the beginning of a lifelong struggle. According to Eni Halilaj , an assistant professor in mechanical engineering at Carnegie Mellon University and biomechanist who specializes in orthopaedic rehabilitation, 60% of those who suffer this common knee injury also develop osteoarthritis early in life.

Belgian researchers create ’treasure map’ to find meteorites in Antarctica
A Belgian-Dutch scientific team, including researchers from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, has created the first ever "treasure map" revealing where meteorites can be found in Antarctica. Meteorites come from space and are found on the Earth's surface as stony material. They contain crucial information about the formation and evolution of our solar system.

Towards compact quantum computers, thanks to topology
Researchers at PSI have compared the electron distribution below the oxide layer of two semiconductors. The investigation is part of an effort to develop particularly stable quantum bits -and thus, in turn, particularly efficient quantum computers. They have now published their latest research, which is supported in part by Microsoft, in the scientific journal Advanced Quantum Technologies .

Diets: how scientists discovered that one size doesn't fit all
Diets: how scientists discovered that one size doesn’t fit all
If you ate too much over the festive season, you may well be thinking about a healthy diet plan for 2022. But as anyone who has ever dieted knows, there are countless options out there. Right now, we're in the midst of a revolutionary time for understanding the human body, and so the question arises: can new science tell us which diet plan is best for losing weight? Many diets originate in a system for rating foods according to the effect they have on our blood sugar level.

Data-frugal Deep Learning Optimizes Microstructure Imaging
Deep learning is often recognized as the magic behind self-driving cars and facial recognition, but what about its ability to safeguard the quality of the materials that make up these advanced devices? Carnegie Mellon University Professor of Materials Science and Engineering Elizabeth Holm and materials science and engineering doctoral candidate Bo Lei have adopted computer vision methods for microstructural images that not only require a fraction of the data deep learning typically relies on, but can save materials researchers an abundance of time and money.
