Breakthrough in construction of computers for mimicking human brain

Breakthrough in construction of computers for mimicking human brain

Jul 18, 2018 Europe
A computer built to mimic the brain's neural networks produces similar results to that of the best brain-simulation supercomputer software currently used for neural-signaling research, finds a new study.

Computer models could replace animal testing

Computer models could replace animal testing

Jul 16, 2018 United States
A study suggests that advanced algorithms working from large chemical databases can predict a new chemical's toxicity better than standard animal tests. The computer-based approach could replace many animal tests commonly used during consumer product testing. It could also evaluate more chemicals than animal testing, a change that could lead to wider safety assessments.

Drones survey African wildlife

Drones survey African wildlife

Jul 16, 2018 Worldwide
A new technique enables fast and accurate counting of gnu, oryx and other large mammals living in wildlife reserves. Drones are used to remotely photograph wilderness areas, and the images are then analysed using object recognition software and verified by humans.

Artificial neural network recognizes 'molecular handwriting'

Artificial neural network recognizes 'molecular handwriting'

Jul 9, 2018 United States
Researchers have developed an artificial neural network made out of DNA that can solve a classic machine learning problem: correctly identifying handwritten numbers. The work is a significant step in demonstrating the capacity to program artificial intelligence into synthetic biomolecular circuits.

Machine learning algorithm can tell how smart you are

Machine learning algorithm can tell how smart you are

Jul 4, 2018 United States
If you've ever lied about your IQ to seem more intelligent, it's time to fess up. Scientists can now tell how smart you are just by looking at a scan of your brain. Actually, to be more precise, the scientists themselves aren't looking at your brain scan; a machine-learning algorithm they've developed is.

Personalized deep learning equips robots for autism therapy

Personalized deep learning equips robots for autism therapy

Jul 3, 2018 United States
Children with autism spectrum conditions often have trouble recognizing the emotional states of people around them — distinguishing a happy face from a fearful face, for instance. To remedy this, some therapists use a kid-friendly robot to demonstrate those emotions and to engage the children in imitating the emotions and responding to them in appropriate ways.

Using AI to understand volcanic eruptions from tiny ash

Using AI to understand volcanic eruptions from tiny ash

Jul 2, 2018 Japan
Scientists have shown that an artificial intelligence program called a Convolutional Neural Network can be trained to categorize volcanic ash particle shapes. Because the shapes of volcanic particles are linked to the type of volcanic eruption, this categorization can help provide information on eruptions and aid volcanic hazard mitigation efforts.

Autonomous vehicles: researchers make advances with new algorithm

Autonomous vehicles: researchers make advances with new algorithm

Jun 27, 2018 Canada
A self-driving vehicle has to detect objects, track them over time, and predict where they will be in the future in order to plan a safe manoeuvre. These tasks are typically trained independently from one another, which could result in disasters should any one task fail.

Computer program looks five minutes into the future

Computer program looks five minutes into the future

Jun 26, 2018 Germany
Computer scientists have developed software that can look a few minutes into the future: The program first learns the typical sequence of actions, such as cooking, from video sequences. Based on this knowledge, it can then accurately predict in new situations what the chef will do at which point in time.
