A FRAMEWORK TO ASSESS THE IMPORTANCE OF VARIABLES FOR DIFFERENT PREDICTIVE MODELS
Two researchers at Duke University have recently devised a useful approach to examine how essential certain variables are for increasing the reliability/accuracy of predictive models. Their paper, published in Nature Machine Intelligence, could ultimately aid the development of more reliable and better performing machine-learning algorithms for a variety of applications.
TWEAKING AI SOFTWARE TO FUNCTION LIKE A HUMAN BRAIN IMPROVES COMPUTER’S LEARNING ABILITY
Computer-based artificial intelligence can function more like human intelligence when programmed to use a much faster technique for learning new objects, say two neuroscientists who designed such a model that was designed to mirror human visual learning.
MACHINE LEARNING ACCELERATES DISCOVERY OF MATERIALS FOR USE IN INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES
New research led by researchers at the University of Toronto (U of T) and Northwestern University employs machine learning to craft the best building blocks in the assembly of framework materials for use in a targeted application.
🗞 PHYSICS NEWS⚙♨:
THE REALIZATION OF A SINGLE-QUANTUM-DOT HEAT VALVE
While many research teams worldwide are trying to develop highly performing quantum computers, some are working on tools to control the flow of heat inside of them. Just like conventional computers, in fact, quantum computers can heat up significantly as they are operating, which can ultimately damage both the devices and their surroundings.
DISCOVERY OF QUANTUM BEHAVIOR IN INSULATORS SUGGESTS POSSIBLE NEW PARTICLE
In a surprising discovery, Princeton physicists have observed an unexpected quantum behavior in an insulator made from a material called tungsten ditelluride. This phenomenon, known as quantum oscillation, is typically observed in metals rather than insulators, and its discovery offers new insights into our understanding of the quantum world. The findings also hint at the existence of an entirely new type of quantum particle.
PHYSICISTS GET CLOSER TO EXAMINING THE SYMMETRIES UNDERLYING OUR UNIVERSE
Every field has its underlying principles. For economics it’s the rational actor; biology has the theory of evolution; modern geology rests on the bedrock of plate tectonics.
🗞 EARTH NEWS🌏:
STUDY: WILDFIRES PRODUCED UP TO HALF OF POLLUTION IN US WEST
Wildfire smoke accounted for up to half of all health-damaging small particle air pollution in the western U.S. in recent years as warming temperatures fueled more destructive blazes, according to a study released Monday.
FRESH SEA SPRAY TURNS ‘SOUR’ AFTER BEING AIRBORNE
Aerosols are everywhere. These tiny liquid or solid particles populate the atmosphere, emerging from natural and artificial sources like volcanoes and oceans, and fossil fuels and agriculture. Ranging in size from less than the width of the smallest viruses to roughly the diameter of a human hair, aerosols are mighty in their impact on climate and human health.
NEW STUDY OF EARTH’S CRUST SHOWS GLOBAL GROWTH SPURT THREE BILLION YEARS AGO
Curtin University researchers have used ancient crystals from eroded rocks found in stream sediments in Greenland to successfully test the theory that portions of Earth’s ancient crust acted as ‘seeds’ from which later generations of crust grew.
🗞 ASTRONOMY & SPACE NEWS🌪🎇:
MOST DISTANT QUASAR DISCOVERED SHEDS LIGHT ON HOW BLACK HOLES GROW
A team of astronomers led by the University of Arizona has observed a luminous quasar 13.03 billion light-years from Earth—the most distant quasar discovered to date. Dating back to 670 million years after the Big Bang, when the universe was only 5% its current age, the quasar hosts a supermassive black hole equivalent to the combined mass of 1.6 billion suns.
ROMAN SPACE TELESCOPE COULD IMAGE 100 HUBBLE ULTRA DEEP FIELDS AT ONCE
One of the Hubble Space Telescope’s most iconic images is the Hubble Ultra Deep Field, which unveiled myriad galaxies across the universe, stretching back to within a few hundred million years of the Big Bang. Hubble peered at a single patch of seemingly empty sky for hundreds of hours beginning in September 2003, and astronomers first unveiled this galaxy tapestry in 2004, with more observations in subsequent years.
ASTRONOMERS FINALLY MEASURE POLARIZED LIGHT FROM EXOPLANET
An international team led by Dutch astronomers has, after years of searching and defying the boundaries of a telescope, for the first time directly captured polarized light from an exoplanet. They can deduct from the light that a disk of dust and gas is orbiting around the exoplanet in which moons are possibly forming. The researchers will soon publish their findings in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics.
🗞 NANOTECHNOLOGY NEWS⛄☃:
RESEARCHERS DEVELOP ORAL INSULIN NANOPARTICLES THAT COULD BE AN ALTERNATIVE TO JABS
Scientists at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have developed insulin nanoparticles that may one day become the basis for an oral medicine, and an alternative to insulin injections for diabetic patients.
