After solving the elusive "Diophantine equation" for 42, MIT and U of Bristol mathematicians have discovered a new solution for 3.
Researchers at TU Graz demonstrate a new design method for particularly energy-saving artificial neural networks that get by with extremely few signals and - similar to Morse code - also assign meaning to the pauses between the signals.
One of the most classic algorithmic problems deals with calculating the shortest path between two points. A more complicated variant of the problem is when the route traverses a changing network - whether this be a road network or the internet. For 40 years, an algorithm has been sought to provide an optimal solution to this problem. Now, computer scientist Christian Wulff-Nilsen of the University of Copenhagen and two research colleagues have come up with a recipe.
An international team of scientists performed theoretical and experimental research on a new high-temperature superconductor, yttrium hydride (YH6). Until 2015, 138 K (or 166 K under pressure) was the record of high-temperature superconductivity. Room-temperature superconductivity, which would have been laughable five years ago, has become a reality. Right now, the whole point is to attain room-temperature superconductivity at lower pressures. Scientists reported that YH6 displays a superconducting transition at ?224 K at 166 GPa.
The researchers have developed a novel connection which can help in the design of more efficient multi-agent AI systems.
University of Tokyo scientists studied the adaptive immune system as a kind of artificial intelligence that can be trained to produce the correct response to invasion by pathogens. This work may lead to more effective vaccines and immune boosting therapies.
A deep-learning algorithm developed by MIT researchers is designed to help machines navigate in the real world, where imperfect or "adversarial" inputs may cause uncertainty.
Researchers have developed a new quantum version of a 150-year-old thermodynamical thought experiment that could pave the way for the development of quantum heat engines.
With the help of about 200 human puzzle-takers, a computer model and functional MRI images, University of Washington researchers have learned more about the processes of reasoning and decision making, pinpointing the brain pathway that springs into action when problem-solving goes south.
Cyber-physical systems (CPS), which combine modern networking with physical actuators, can be vulnerable against hackers. Recently, researchers at DGIST developed a new framework for CPSs that is resilient to a sophisticated kind of cyberattack. Unlike existing solutions, the proposed approach allows for real-time detection and recovery from the attack while ensuring stable operation. This paves the way for secure and reliable CPSs across various application domains, such as smart cities and unmanned public transportation.
