|From one brain scan, more information for medical artificial intelligence|
Researchers have devised a novel method to glean training information for machine-learning models, including those that can analyze medical images to help diagnose and treat brain conditions.
|Researchers see around corners to detect object shapes|
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 said this technique enables them to reconstruct images in great detail, including the relief of George Washington's profile on a US quarter.
|Researchers find quantum gravity has no symmetry|
Using holography, researchers have found when gravity is combined with quantum mechanics, symmetry is not possible.
|A sound idea: a step towards quantum computing|
Researchers have developed a new method for using lasers to create tiny lattice waves inside silicon crystals that can encode quantum information. By taking advantage of existing silicon hardware, this work may greatly reduce the cost of future quantum computers for cryptographic and optimization applications.
|Beyond Queen's stomp-stomp-clap: Concerts and computer science converge in new research|
New research suggests how to get large numbers of people engaged in participating during a live performance like a concert -- or a lecture -- and channel that energy for a sustained time period.
|Mysterious Majorana quasiparticle is now closer to being controlled for quantum computing|
Using a new approach, researchers detected the elusive Majorana quasiparticle, notable for being its own antiparticle and for its potential as the basis for a robust quantum computing system, in a device built from a superconductor, small magnetic elements, and a topological insulator.
|Bitcoin causing carbon dioxide emissions comparable to Las Vegas or Hamburg|
The use of Bitcoin causes around 22 megatons in carbon dioxide emissions annually -- comparable to the total emissions of cities such as Las Vegas or Hamburg.
|Making the 'human-body Internet' more effective|
Human body communication (HBC) uses the human body to transmit power and data, much like the internet. Because it's a smaller and closed network, it has the benefit of being more secure and power efficient. In a recent study, a group of Japanese researchers used an equivalent circuit model to examine how different parameters affect HBC transmission characteristics.
|Could playing computer games improve your peripheral vision?|
Researchers have found a significant improvement in the peripheral awareness of people who played computer games specially designed around using peripheral vision. This finding opens up the possibility that these types of games can be used to help improve players' performance in team sports - so they can spot team-mates quicker - or to help them to identify potential hazards at the side of their vision.
|Novel de-noising method generates sharper photorealistic images faster|
A global team of computer scientists has developed an innovative method for producing higher-quality images and scene designs in much less time by using a deep-learning-based approach that considerably cuts the noise in images.
|Behind the magic: Making moving photos a reality|
Researchers have figured out how to take a person from a 2D photo or a work of art and make them run, walk or jump out of the frame. The system also allows users to view the animation in three dimensions using augmented reality tools.
|Researchers 'stretch' the ability of 2D materials to change technology|
Two-dimensional (2D) materials -- as thin as a single layer of atoms -- have intrigued scientists with their flexibility, elasticity, and unique electronic properties. Now, researchers have combined 2D materials with oxide materials in a new way, using a transistor-scale device platform, to fully explore the capabilities of these changeable 2D materials to transform electronics, optics, computing and a host of other technologies.
|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.
|How artificial intelligence can help detect rare diseases|
In a study of 679 patients with 105 different rare diseases, scientists have shown that artificial intelligence can be used to diagnose rare diseases more efficiently and reliably. A neural network automatically combines portrait photos with genetic and patient data.
|New computer attack mimics user's keystroke characteristics and evades detection|
Cyber security researchers have developed a new attack called "Malboard." Malboard evades several detection products that are intended to continuously verify the user's identity based on personalized keystroke characteristics.
