CONCEPT WHITENING: A STRATEGY TO IMPROVE THE INTERPRETABILITY OF IMAGE RECOGNITION MODELS
Over the past decade or so, deep neural networks have achieved very promising results on a variety of tasks, including image recognition tasks. Despite their advantages, these networks are very complex and sophisticated, which makes interpreting what they learned and determining the processes behind their predictions difficult or sometimes impossible. This lack of interpretability makes deep neural networks somewhat untrustworthy and unreliable.
THE COMPOUND THAT MAKES CHILI PEPPERS SPICY ALSO BOOSTS PEROVSKITE SOLAR CELL PERFORMANCE
Scientists in China and Sweden have determined that a pinch of capsaicin, the chemical compound that gives chili peppers their spicy sting, may be a secret ingredient for more stable and efficient perovskite solar cells. The research, published January 13 in the journal Joule, determined that sprinkling capsaicin into the precursor of methylammonium lead triiodide (MAPbI3) perovskite during the manufacturing process led to a greater abundance of electrons (instead of empty placeholders) to conduct current at the semiconductor’s surface. The addition resulted in polycrystalline MAPbI3 solar cells with the most efficient charge transport to date.
FISH-INSPIRED ROBOTS COORDINATE MOVEMENTS WITHOUT ANY OUTSIDE CONTROL
Schools of fish exhibit complex, synchronized behaviors that help them find food, migrate and evade predators. No one fish or team of fish coordinates these movements nor do fish communicate with each other about what to do next. Rather, these collective behaviors emerge from so-called implicit coordination—individual fish making decisions based on what they see their neighbors doing.

STORM IN A COSMIC TEACUP: A NEW PARADIGM FOR UNDERSTANDING PLASMA TURBULENCE
On the path to writing his Ph.D. dissertation, Lucio Milanese made a discovery—one that refocused his research, and will now likely dominate his thesis.
COULD WE HARNESS ENERGY FROM BLACK HOLES?
A remarkable prediction of Einstein’s theory of general relativity—the theory that connects space, time, and gravity—is that rotating black holes have enormous amounts of energy available to be tapped.
STUDYING CHAOS WITH ONE OF THE WORLD’S FASTEST CAMERAS
There are things in life that can be predicted reasonably well. The tides rise and fall. The moon waxes and wanes. A billiard ball bounces around a table according to orderly geometry.
🗞 EARTH NEWS🌏:
MELTING ICEBERGS KEY TO SEQUENCE OF AN ICE AGE, SCIENTISTS FIND
Scientists claim to have found the ‘missing link’ in the process that leads to an ice age on Earth.
EARTH TO REACH TEMPERATURE TIPPING POINT IN NEXT 20 TO 30 YEARS, NEW STUDY FINDS
Earth’s ability to absorb nearly a third of human-caused carbon emissions through plants could be halved within the next two decades at the current rate of warming, according to a new study in Science Advances by researchers at Northern Arizona University, the Woodwell Climate Research Center and the University of Waikato, New Zealand. Using more than two decades of data from measurement towers in every major biome across the globe, the team identified a critical temperature tipping point beyond which plants’ ability to capture and store atmospheric carbon—a cumulative effect referred to as the “land carbon sink”—decreases as temperatures continue to rise.
RED AND GREEN SNOW ALGAE INCREASE SNOWMELT IN THE ANTARCTIC PENINSULA
Red and green algae that grow on snow in the Antarctic Peninsula (AP) cause significant extra snowmelt on par with melt from dust on snow in the Rocky Mountains, according to a first-of-its-kind scientific research study led by Alia Khan, affiliate research scientist at the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) and assistant professor at Western Washington University. Algal blooms are likely to increase in Antarctica as the planet continues to warm, which will further exacerbate seasonal snowmelt and contribute to the expansion of ice-free areas in the AP region. This could have serious impacts on regional climate, snow and ice melt, freshwater availability and ecosystems, yet is not accounted for in current global climate models. Results of the research were published on January 13, 2021, in the European Geosciences Union’s The Cryosphere.
🗞 ASTRONOMY & SPACE NEWS🌪🎇:
A ROBOT MADE OF ICE COULD ADAPT AND REPAIR ITSELF ON OTHER WORLDS
Some of the most tantalizing targets in space exploration are frozen ice worlds. Take Jupiter’s moon Europa, for instance. Its warm, salty subsurface ocean is buried under a moon-wide sheet of ice. What’s the best way to explore it?
WORMHOLES MAY BE LURKING IN THE UNIVERSE—AND NEW STUDIES ARE PROPOSING WAYS OF FINDING THEM
Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity profoundly changed our thinking about fundamental concepts in physics, such as space and time. But it also left us with some deep mysteries. One was black holes, which were only unequivocally detected over the past few years. Another was “wormholes”—bridges connecting different points in spacetime, in theory providing shortcuts for space travelers.

Prepping for a spacewalk typically means diving underwater to rehearse and fine-tune operations.
🗞 NANOTECHNOLOGY NEWS⛄☃:
Bound-charge engineering: A new strategy to develop nanowire transistors
In recent years, physicists and electronic engineers have been trying to identify materials that could be used to fabricate new types of electronic devices. One-dimensional (1-D) and two-dimensional (2-D) materials have been found to have particularly advantageous characteristics, particularly for the development of new generations of nanoelectronics (electronic components at the nano scale).
Engineers observe avalanches in nanoparticles for the first time
Researchers at Columbia Engineering report today that they have developed the first nanomaterial that demonstrates “photon avalanching,” a process that is unrivaled in its combination of extreme nonlinear optical behavior and efficiency. The realization of photon avalanching in nanoparticle form opens up a host of sought-after applications, from real-time super-resolution optical microscopy, precise temperature and environmental sensing, and infrared light detection, to optical analog-to-digital conversion and quantum sensing.
RESEARCHERS IDENTIFY NANOPARTICLES THAT COULD DELIVER THERAPEUTIC MRNA BEFORE BIRTH
Researchers at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the School of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Pennsylvania have identified ionizable lipid nanoparticles that could be used to deliver mRNA as part of fetal therapy. The proof-of-concept study, published in Science Advances, engineered and screened a number of lipid nanoparticle formulations for targeting mouse fetal organs and has laid the groundwork for testing potential therapies to treat genetic diseases before birth.
