Generation and sampling of quantum states of light in a silicon chip
Generation and sampling of quantum states of light in a silicon chip
Scientists from the University of Bristol and the Technical University of Denmark have found a promising new way to build the next generation of quantum simulators combining light and silicon micro-chips. In the roadmap to develop quantum machines able to compete and overcome classical supercomputers in solving specific problems, the scientific community is facing two main technological challenges.

What can Wikipedia tell us about human interaction?
What can Wikipedia tell us about human interaction?
EPFL researchers have studied the dynamics of network structures using one of the world's most-visited websites: Wikipedia. In addition to a better understanding of online networks, their work brings exciting insights into human social behavior and collective memory. Have you ever visited a Wikipedia page to answer a question, only to find yourself clicking from page to page, until you end up on a topic wildly different from the one you started with?

Teaching robots what humans want
Told to optimize for speed while racing down a track in a computer game, a car pushes the pedal to the metal... and proceeds to spin in a tight little circle. Nothing in the instructions told the car to drive straight, and so it improvised. Researchers are trying to make it easier for humans to tell autonomous systems, such as vehicles and robots, what they want them to do.

Online Atlas of Aquatic Insects Aids Water-Quality Monitoring
Computer vision researchers have demonstrated they can use special light sources and sensors to see around corners or through gauzy filters, enabling them to reconstruct the shapes of unseen objects. The researchers from Carnegie Mellon University , the University of Toronto and University College London said this technique enables them to reconstruct images in great detail, including the relief of George Washington's profile on a U.S. quarter.

'Alexa, monitor my heart': Researchers develop first contactless cardiac arrest AI system for smart speakers
’Alexa, monitor my heart’: Researchers develop first contactless cardiac arrest AI system for smart speakers
Almost 500,000 Americans die each year from cardiac arrest , when the heart suddenly stops beating. People experiencing cardiac arrest will suddenly become unresponsive and either stop breathing or gasp for air, a sign known as agonal breathing. Immediate CPR can double or triple someone's chance of survival, but that requires a bystander to be present.

A tool for identifying phases of matter
Even if you're not a physicist, phases of matter... really matter. They're the distinct physical forms taken on by all the "stuff" in the universe, from icebergs to ozone, and now Yale scientists have developed a more accurate way to help classify some of them. The findings appear in a recent study published in the journal Physical Review Letters and a follow-up work published in Physical Review B. The fundamental phases of matter - solid, liquid, and gas - are well known.

Researchers use facial quirks to unmask ’deepfakes’
After watching hours of video footage of former President Barack Obama delivering his weekly address, Shruti Agarwal began to notice a few quirks about the way Obama speaks. "Every time he says 'Hi, everybody,' he moves his head up to the left or the right, and then he purses his lips," said Agarwal, a computer science graduate student at UC Berkeley.

Spotting fake videos with artificial intelligence
Spotting fake videos with artificial intelligence
Last year a video clip featuring Barack Obama created quite a stir. It seemed to show the ex-president calling his successor Donald Trump "a total and complete dipshit". Ultimately, the people behind the clip admitted that it was no more than a highly convincing fake. It is now possible to perform this kind of trickery even in real time.

Do Video Games Drive Obesity?
Are children, teenagers and adults who spend a lot of time playing video games really more obese? A meta study conducted with the University of Würzburg has looked into this question. The cliché is true - but only for adults. A chubby teen lolling on the sofa for hours on end, the game controller in one hand, a bag of crisps at his side and a bottle of coke on the coffee table.

AI tool helps radiologists detect brain aneurysms
Radiologists improved their diagnoses of brain aneurysms with the help of an artificial intelligence algorithm developed by medical experts and computer scientists. Doctors could soon get some help from an artificial intelligence tool when diagnosing brain aneurysms - bulges in blood vessels in the brain that can leak or burst open, potentially leading to stroke, brain damage or death.

Living Healthier with Digital Technologies
05/29/2019 Through the research network ForDigitHealth, five Bavarian universities are jointly researching the stress that digitisation causes in humans. The Bavarian State Ministry of Science and the Arts is funding this initiative with 3.35 million euros. With its permanent accessibility, increasing flood of information and constantly changing technologies that humans have to familiarise themselves with, digitisation is fundamentally changing society and individual lives.

Sensor-packed glove learns signatures of the human grasp
Signals help neural network identify objects by touch; system could aid robotics and prosthetics design. A new sensory glove developed by MIT researchers provides insight into how humans grasp and manipulate objects, reports The Economist .

Labororatory for Robots and Artificial Intelligence in Berlin
On June 4, 2019, the Dahlem Center for Machine Learning and Robotics (DCMLR) at Freie Universität Berlin will open its doors to journalists who wish to learn more about cutting-edge German research on artificial intelligence and robotics. For thirty years now, new technologies such as robotic fish or quadrocopters have been developed at Freie Universität, and research has been conducted on machine learning, which enables autonomous driving.

Bring on faster internet: device packs more into optical fibre
A research team has developed a light beam device that could lead to faster internet, clearer images of space and more detailed medical imaging. University of Queensland researcher and optical engineer Dr Joel Carpenter worked with Nokia Bell Labs to build the device to tackle the challenge of splitting light into the shapes it is made up of, known as modes.

Historian Prof. Torsten Hiltmann aims to make use of machine learning for medieval research
Centuries-old manuscripts, documents and heraldic images: at first glance, medieval research and artificial intelligence seem to be a contradiction in terms. After all, historical studies and the like were long seen as being subjects greatly removed from the world of IT. However, methods such as machine learning on the part of computer programmes, which learn new things and correct themselves, open up new opportunities for historians doing research.

First smartphone app that can hear ear infections in children
First smartphone app that can hear ear infections in children
. This condition occurs when fluid builds up in the middle ear behind the eardrum and is infected. This buildup is also common in another condition called otitis media with effusion. Any kind of fluid buildup can be painful and make it hard for children to hear, which can be especially detrimental when they are learning to talk. Both conditions are hard to diagnose because they have vague symptoms: Sometimes children tug on their ears or have fev

Quantum Cloud Computing with Self-Check
With a quantum coprocessor in the cloud, physicists from Innsbruck, Austria, open the door to the simulation of previously unsolvable problems in chemistry, materials research or high-energy physics. The research groups led by Rainer Blatt and Peter Zoller report how they simulated particle physics phenomena on 20 quantum bits and how the quantum simulator self-verified the result for the first time.

Augmented reality affects people’s behavior in the real world
Stanford scholar Jeremy Bailenson and other researchers found that people's interactions with a virtual person in augmented reality, or AR, influenced how they behaved and acted in the physical world. As major technology firms race to roll out augmented reality products, Stanford researchers are learning how it affects people's behavior - in both the physical world and a digitally enhanced one.
