Deep-learning technique reveals transparent objects in the dark.
New 'classification models' sense how well humans trust intelligent machines they collaborate with, a step toward improving the quality of interactions and teamwork.
Researchers with the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory have demonstrated a new level of control over photons encoded with quantum information. The team's experimental system allows them to manipulate the frequency of photons to bring about superposition, a state that enables quantum operations and computing.
Scientists in industry and academia are looking for new materials to succeed highly successful semiconductor transistors, now represented by CMOS. Intel and UC Berkeley scientists have hit on a very promising post-transistor technology: multiferroics, which use magnetic spin states instead of electron charge to store binary data. They have shown that these MESO (magneto-electric spin-orbit) devices can greatly improve energy efficiency and pack more logic devices onto a chip.
Using a compact optical platform that exploits the quantum characteristics of light, Professor Roberto Morandotti and his team are one step closer to realizing the first powerful photonic quantum computer. In Nature Physics, the INRS researchers revealed to have generated a particular class of quantum states - d-level cluster states, robust and powerful than any other such states demonstrated thus far -, as well as to have used them to implement novel quantum operations.
Findings from a table-top experiment have revealed that the primary driver of a type of fluid flow called solutal convection has been overlooked. What's more, once this driver is accounted for, it completely flips the expected flow outcomes.
The artificial bee colony (ABC) algorithm is widely applied in many fields, but it suffers from slow convergence, so its solutions perform well in exploration but poorly in exploitation. Researchers from Kanazawa University and the University of Toyama proposed a scale-free mechanism to guide the search of the ABC algorithm. They verified that scale-free networks improve the algorithm's optimization performance and enhance the search ability of other metaheuristic algorithms.
USC scientists have demonstrated a theoretical method to enhance the performance of quantum computers works, an important step to scale the transformative technology.
MIT CSAIL's new system can faithfully remake your favorite paintings via 3D printing and deep learning.
A global team of computer scientists have developed a novel method that replicates physical objects for the virtual and augmented reality space just using a point-and-shoot camera with a flash, without the need for additional, and oftentimes expensive, supporting hardware.
