As I continue my efforts to fight against pseudoscience in medicine, I often ask myself – how bad can it theoretically get? I have had this discussion with others as well, some of whom argue that we should not worry because science will win out in the long run. Science is self-corrective, and pseudoscience will […]
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) In a paper appearing in the American Chemical Society's journal Applied Materials and Interfaces, researchers from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) and colleagues report something new: a printable structure that begins to fold itself up as soon as it's peeled off the printing platform.
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) At the 2017 Conference on Empirical Methods on Natural Language Processing starting this week, researchers from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory are presenting a new...Show More Summary
(The Henryk Niewodniczanski Institute of Nuclear Physics Polish Academy of Sciences) We imagine atomic nuclei to be more or less spherical, chaotic clusters of protons and neutrons. Experiments at the Argonne National Laboratory, inspired by physicists from the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the PAS, are verifying these ideas. Show More Summary
(DOE/Los Alamos National Laboratory) At an international science conference hosted recently in Santa Fe, N.M., Los Alamos National Laboratory scientists Bruce Carlsten, Dinh Nguyen and Richard Sheffield were awarded the 2017 Free-Electron Laser (FEL) Prize.
Ed tech startup Labster whose software platform enables virtual simulations of laboratories for teaching life science to students, has closed a $10 million Series A round of funding led by early stage European VC firm Balderton Capital. Read More
(Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press) The 81st Cold Spring Harbor Symposium focused on Targeting Cancer. The implications of how the underlying science can drive improvements in diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic approaches was a major theme throughout the Symposium. Show More Summary
Mars Curiosity: Facts and Information: The Mars Science Laboratory and its rover centerpiece, Curiosity, is the most ambitious Mars mission yet flown by NASA. The rover’s primary mission is to find out if Mars is, or was, suitable for life. Show More Summary
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) This week, at the International Conference on Very Large Databases, researchers from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) are presenting a new system for data center caching that uses flash memory, the kind of memory used in most smartphones.
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, CSAIL ) In a new paper, researchers from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL present an Alexa-like system that allows robots to understand a wide range of commands that require contextual knowledge about objects and their environments. They've dubbed the system 'ComText,' for 'commands in context.'
(U.S. Army Research Laboratory) Work to develop small autonomous robots through a 10-year effort led by the US Army Research Laboratory is helping to inform the development of future swarms of heterogeneous Army systems for air and ground -- large and small -- that work collaboratively.
Each year, the SENS Research Foundation accepts a group of young life science academics and puts them to work on projects in aging research, both at the foundation and in allied laboratories, creating ties between research groups that can help to advance the state of the art. Show More Summary
(DOE/Oak Ridge National Laboratory) ORNL researchers awarded $2 million to apply machine learning to data analysis.
(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) A science team at Berkeley Lab has precisely measured some previously obscured properties of a 2-D semiconducting material known as moly sulfide, which opens up a new avenue to application...
Start your own robot revolution with MIT CSAIL’s “Interactive Robogami” system. Researchers from the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) are developing a way to design, print, and assemble a simple cyborg […] The post MIT 3D Printer Turns Anyone Into a Roboticist appeared first on Geek.com.
(Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (EMPA)) Researchers at ETH Zurich, Empa and the Norwegian research institute SINTEF are pursuing a new approach to treating arthritis. This is based on a polysaccharide, a long-chain sugar molecule, originating from brown algae. Show More Summary
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, CSAIL ) Researchers from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) created a system called 'Interactive Robogami' that lets you design a robot in minutes, and then 3-D-print and assemble it in as little as four hours.
