The legal industry has seen plenty of technologically induced changes over the past decade, as e-discovery, online marketing and advances in legal research reshape the way lawyers work. As part of a symposium on the "legal profession's monopoly" last year, legal scholars argued that "machine intelligence" is on the......
Fruit flies aren't known for their stunning intelligence, but new research suggests that they can keep track of time. In a study published Thursday in Current Biology, researchers led by Martin Heisenberg of Rudolf Virchow Center in Germany used scent cues to show that even simple flies can sense time.Read full article >>
