How artificial intelligence can be used to more quickly and accurately diagnose breast cancer

Breast ultrasound elastography is an emerging imaging technique used by doctors to help diagnose breast cancer by evaluating a lesion’s stiffness in a non-invasive way. Researchers identified the critical role machine learning can play in making this technique more efficient and accurate in diagnosis. Read More

Shifts to renewable energy can drive up energy poverty, study finds

Efforts to shift away from fossil fuels and replace oil and coal with renewable energy sources can help reduce carbon emissions but do so at the expense of increased inequality, according to a new study. Read More

Device channels heat into light

Engineers have shown how their carbon nanotube films can be used to create a device to recycle waste heat. The device could enhance solar cell output and increase the efficiency of industrial waste-heat recovery. Read More

Scientists deepen understanding of magnetic fields surrounding Earth and other planets

New research into waves that travel through Earth’s magnetosphere deepen our understanding of the region and its interaction with our own planet, and open up new ways to study other planets across the galaxy. Read More

Sound mind: Detecting depression through voice

AI algorithms can now more accurately detect depressed mood using the sound of your voice, according to new research. Read More

Internet communities can teach amateurs to build personalized governments

Self-governing internet communities, in the form of games, social networks or informational websites, create their own rule systems that help groups of anonymous users work together. Read More

‘The way you move’: Body structure brings coordinated movement

A computer model shows that a starfish-like animal can coordinate rhythmic motion based on body structure without the brain telling them to do so. This provides insights useful for physiology and robotics. Read More

Which is the perfect quantum theory?

For some phenomena in quantum many-body physics several competing theories exist. But which of them describes a quantum phenomenon best? Researchers have now successfully deployed artificial neural networks for image analysis of quantum systems. Read More

Super salty, subzero Arctic water provides peek at possible life on other planets

Researchers have discovered thriving communities of bacteria in Alaskan ‘cryopegs,’ trapped layers of sediment with water so salty that it remains liquid at below-freezing temperatures. The setting may be similar to environments on Mars, Saturn’s moon Titan, or other bodies farther from the sun. Read More

Trump rails against 'terrible bias' at social media summit

President Trump on Thursday denounced the world’s top social media companies as being biased against him and his supporters and pledged that his administration will be exploring “regulatory and legislative solutions” to protect free speech online.“… Read More
