INTEL IS RELEASING A PROCESSOR THAT’S BUILT FOR NEURAL NETWORKS
Intel is releasing a new microprocessor before the year ends, and it's designed to run artificial neural networks better than today's computer chips. The Nervana, as Intel calls it, is going to revolutionize AI computing, especially for businesses.
STONEHENGE BUILDERS ATE ANIMALS FROM AS FAR AWAY AS SCOTLAND, RESEARCH FINDS
The “army of builders” who constructed Stonehenge feasted on animals that came from as far away as Scotland, new findings have shown.
IN A MAJOR BREAKTHROUGH, GOOGLE UNVEILS AN AI THAT LEARNS ON ITS OWN
This is the beginning of a new age in AI.
HERE’S HOW THE LATEST GRAVITATIONAL WAVE ANNOUNCEMENT IS GOING TO REVOLUTIONIZE PHYSICS
Astrophysicists are excited at the possibility of observing the merger of neutron stars to test what happens to matter in some of the most extreme conditions in the universe. This could be key to understanding the formation of the heavier elements on the Periodic Table.
SCIENTISTS JUST RESTORED BREATHING AFTER PARALYSIS
Researchers from Case Western University may have found a way to activate an alternative nerve path to allow for breathing even with a severed spine. The treatment may help keep spinal injury patients off of ventilators.
CROWDSOURCED MORALITY COULD DETERMINE THE ETHICS OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
Some experts believe that the best way to train artificial intelligences to deal with morally complex situations is to use the input of the crowd. Others argue that such a system would include biases based on the sample queried and that different algorithms would reach different conclusions from the same dataset.
SCIENTISTS JUST UNLOCKED THE CATALYST FOR CANCEROUS RELAPSE
Scientists have discovered that cancer cells' interactions with the immune system after surviving treatment may be what allows dormant cancer cells to "wake up" and relapse.
OLD AGE IS NOT FOR TAKING IT EASY. ELDERLY MUST EXERCISE TO KEEP HEALTH COSTS DOWN, SAY EXPERTS
Old age is not for taking it easy and pensioners must ‘play their part’ in keeping active to avoid becoming a burden to the healthcare system, experts have said.
ANCIENT SEA CREATURE LOOKED LIKE A WINE GLASS, DIED ALONE
A solitary fossil unearthed in Utah's Antimony Canyon reveals a long-extinct marine creature previously unknown to science.
NEW RESEARCH SHOWS ASYMMETRY IN BACTERIA MIGHT HELP US FIGHT ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE
Understanding this mechanism could help better target antibiotics, and even weaken the virulence of certain bacteria.
