A targeted approach to reducing the health impacts of crop residue burning in India
A new study shows how small-scale actions could improve air quality and health outcomes. To clear the way for planting wheat in November, a farmer in Punjab, India, sets aflame the leftover straw, or stubble, of a harvested rice paddy crop in October. The burning residue fills the air with carbon monoxide, ozone, and fine particulate matter (PM 2.5 ) that will make it harder to breathe for days afterward and for miles around.

What does artificial intelligence do to us?
What does artificial intelligence do to us?
Kick-Off for the project "Desirable Digitalization". Sponsored by Stiftung Mercator Artificial intelligence is on everyone's lips. But what does AI do to us and our society? How does it change our view of humanity? How can AI applications be steered in an ethically desirable direction? In the project "Desirable Digitalization" of the Center for Science and Thought at the University of Bonn and the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence at the University of Cambridge, which is funded by Stiftung Mercator, researchers take a look at the challenges of AI for society as a whole.

A far-sighted approach to machine learning
A far-sighted approach to machine learning
New system can teach a group of cooperative or competitive AI agents to find an optimal long-term solution. Picture two teams squaring off on a football field. The players can cooperate to achieve an objective, and compete against other players with conflicting interests. That's how the game works. Creating artificial intelligence agents that can learn to compete and cooperate as effectively as humans remains a thorny problem.

Where have all the Christmas beetles gone?
Where have all the Christmas beetles gone?
Swarms of iridescent Christmas beetles used to mark Australia's summer season every year. But today, they seem as scarce as mixtapes and crochet swimsuits. "People remember them being around in huge numbers around Christmas, but that just doesn't seem to happen anymore, particularly on the east coast of Australia," said Associate Professor Tanya Latty , an entomologist at the School of Life and Environmental Sciences at the University of Sydney.
