The process of egg formation in fruit flies relies on physical phenomena analogous to the exchange of gases between balloons of different sizes, according to a study by MIT biologists and mathematicians.
A team of scientists from Geisinger and Tempus have found that artificial intelligence can predict risk of new atrial fibrillation (AF) and AF-related stroke.
A researcher from Kanazawa University devised a way to speed up a fundamental task in computer vision and graphics known as non-rigid point set registration. Unlike previous registration techniques, the proposed method is computationally efficient even for large data sets. Moreover, the computing times for this method are shorter than those for a state-of-the-art approach. The results of this study could have implications for various fields, such as autonomous driving, medical imaging, and robotic manipulation.
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.
New research shows that the more animals know about each other, the more they may be able to optimize their aggression.
Researchers have developed a method based on artificial intelligence that rapidly identifies currently available medications that may treat Alzheimer's disease. The method also reveals potential new treatment targets for the disease.
Experimental and theoretical physicists investigated the behavior of magnetic whirls within nanoscale geometric structures.
A new study by a team of researchers at UL has identified the underlying tactics used by the top-ranked competitors among the seven million players of Fantasy Premier League (FPL), the official - and world's largest - fantasy football game of the English Premier League.
Deeper understanding of the climate-water-energy nexus will significantly contribute towards planning and managing transnational power grids.
As light as possible and as strong as possible at the same time. These are the requirements for modern lightweight materials, such as those used in aircraft construction and the automotive industry. A research team from Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (HZG) and Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) has now developed a new materials' design approach for future ultralight materials: Nanometer-sized metal struts that form nested networks on separate hierarchical levels provide amazing strength.
