Algorithm Identifies Distinct Dolphin Click Patterns in Underwater Recordings

To study dolphin populations and better understand how they’re affected by climate change and natural resource development, a group of scientists has created an algorithm that can recognize distinct dolphin click patterns among millions of clicks in underwater recordings. Kaitlin Frasier of Scripps Institution of Oceanography, California, who led the study, makes autonomous underwater acoustic … More Algorithm Identifies Distinct Dolphin Click Patterns in Underwater Recordings

Reducing Disruptions in Online Services With Automated Intelligent Algorithms

Online services such as Gmail, Apple, Facebook, etc, regularly experience disruptions which leave millions of users upset and frustrated. But it’s not just the users that are affected by disruptions in online services – delays and outages have both financial and operational implications for websites too. For instance, a single hour-long episode of disruption can … More Reducing Disruptions in Online Services With Automated Intelligent Algorithms

Researchers Use Grammar Acqusition Algorithm to Translate Lesser-Known Languages

There are about 7,000 languages worldwide, all with their own sets of rules, grammars, and dialects. When disasters and major accidents happen, the breadth and variety of that number make it hard for disaster relief teams to react quickly and efficiently, especially when dealing with areas with low resources. “We need to get resources to … More Researchers Use Grammar Acqusition Algorithm to Translate Lesser-Known Languages

New Tool Improves Online Labor Market Search Algorithms

The world economy is increasingly shifting toward knowledge-based production, meaning instead of manufacturing, industries are now more focused on implementing new ideas about technology, machine learning, product design, etc. Although interesting, this new state of the market also brings some challenges, particularly for the workers and employers. For instance, it can hard to find your … More New Tool Improves Online Labor Market Search Algorithms

Newly Developed Algorithm Better at Diagnosing Pneumonia Than Radiologists

A team of Standford researchers has developed a new algorithm that is excellent for diagnosing pneumonia. In fact, the new algorithm, called CheXNet, can diagnose up to 14 different medical conditions and is better at diagnosing pneumonia than radiologists working alone. As Pranav Rajpurkar, a graduate student in the Machine Learning Group at Stanford and … More Newly Developed Algorithm Better at Diagnosing Pneumonia Than Radiologists

New Algorithm Expands Use of sCMOS for Biological Microscopy

  Scientific complementary metal-oxide semiconductor cameras, or sCMOS for short, are highly advanced cameras that provide significant advances in imaging speed, view of field and sensitivity compared with more traditional methods and detectors. They’re rapidly gaining popularity in various fields, including biological sciences. However, their use in this particular field has been limited until now. … More New Algorithm Expands Use of sCMOS for Biological Microscopy

Examining 3D Structures of Chromosomes With Algorithms

We all know that earphones, cables and the like tend to get tangled quickly and then form annoying knots. However, although our chromosomes look the part – they’re long strings of genetic material – we don’t know do they or don’t they get tangled too. Now, German researchers have used mathematical algorithms to examine and … More Examining 3D Structures of Chromosomes With Algorithms

Algorithms Predict Risk of Plant Disease and Infestation Worldwide

Pests and diseases have a major impact on food supplies and the surrounding ecosystem. It is particularly damaging when a pest invades a new region in which native plants have little natural resistance. To help governments better understand the risks of outbreaks before they even happen, researchers in Mexico have developed a new technique that … More Algorithms Predict Risk of Plant Disease and Infestation Worldwide

30-Year-Old Theorem Still Best for Reducing Data and Speeding Up Algorithms

Although digital information can be viewed regarding size – a daily email is typically 75-100 kilobytes (Kb) in size – it’s important to note that data also has dimensions. These dimensions are based on the numbers of variables in a piece of data. So, a typical email can be viewed as a high-dimensional vector where … More 30-Year-Old Theorem Still Best for Reducing Data and Speeding Up Algorithms

Why It’s Not Easy to Develop Fake-News Solutions

By now, we all know that Facebook’s algorithms are the ones controlling the news and updates you see on your Newsfeed. Most of us are also aware of the recent scandal Facebook has been through thanks to the spreading of fake news on the social media. And although developing fake-news solutions may seem like an … More Why It’s Not Easy to Develop Fake-News Solutions
