    Researchers introduce a new neurocomputational model of the human brain that could bridge the gap in understanding AI and the biological mechanisms underlying mental disorders.

  • Even smartest AI models don't match human visual processing
    on September 16, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    Deep convolutional neural networks (DCNNs) don't see objects the way humans do -- using configural shape perception -- and that could be dangerous in real-world AI applications. The study employed novel visual stimuli called 'Frankensteins' to explore how the human brain and DCNNs process holistic, […]

  • Intelligent microscopes for detecting rare biological events
    on September 8, 2022 at 4:05 pm

    Biophysicists have developed control software that optimizes how fluorescence microscopes collect data on living samples. Their control loop, used to image mitochondrial and bacterial sites of division in detail, is released as an open source plug-in and could inspire a new generation of […]

  • Artificial Intelligence tool could reduce common drug side effects
    on September 7, 2022 at 1:33 pm

    Artificial intelligence could help clinicians assess which patients are likely to encounter the harmful side effects of some commonly used antidepressants, antihistamines and bladder medicines.

  • Walking and slithering aren't as different as you think
    on September 6, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    Abrahamic texts treat slithering as a special indignity visited on the wicked serpent, but evolution may draw a more continuous line through the motion of swimming microbes, wriggling worms, skittering spiders and walking horses. A new study found that all of these kinds of motion are well […]

  • New method to systematically find optimal quantum operation sequences for quantum computers developed
    on September 2, 2022 at 2:32 pm

    Computer scientists have succeeded in developing a method for systematically finding the optimal quantum operation sequence for a quantum computer. They have developed a systematic method that applies optimal control theory (GRAPE algorithm) to identify the theoretically optimal sequence from among […]

  • Robots can be used to assess children's mental wellbeing
    on September 1, 2022 at 5:59 pm

    Robots can be better at detecting mental wellbeing issues in children than parent-reported or self-reported testing, a new study suggests.

  • From bits to p-bits: One step closer to probabilistic computing
    on August 29, 2022 at 3:28 pm

    Scientists have developed a mathematical description of what happens within tiny magnets as they fluctuate between states when an electric current and magnetic field are applied. Their findings could act as the foundation for engineering more advanced computers that can quantify uncertainty while […]
