Machine learning models can produce reliable results even with limited training data
Researchers have determined how to build reliable machine learning models that can understand complex equations in real-world situations while using far less training data than is normally expected. more...
Are US teenagers more likely than others to exaggerate their math abilities?
A major new study has revealed that American teenagers are more likely than any other nationality to brag about their math ability. more...
Evolution wired human brains to act like supercomputers
Scientists have confirmed that human brains are naturally wired to perform advanced calculations, much like a high-powered computer, to make sense of the world through a process known as Bayesian inference. more...
New super-fast flood model has potentially life-saving benefits
Researchers have developed a new simulation model, which can predict flooding during an ongoing disaster more quickly and accurately than currently possible. more...
What do neurons, fireflies and dancing the Nutbush have in common?
Synchronicity is all around us, but it is poorly understood. Computer scientists have now developed new tools to understand how human and natural networks fall in and out of sync. more...
Electrical noise stimulation applied to the brain could be key to boosting math learning
Exciting a brain region using electrical noise stimulation can help improve mathematical learning in those who struggle with the subject, according to a new study. more...
Quantum computer unveils atomic dynamics of light-sensitive molecules
Researchers have implemented a quantum-based method to observe a quantum effect in the way light-absorbing molecules interact with incoming photons. Known as a conical intersection, the effect puts limitations on the paths molecules can take to change between different configurations. The observation method makes use of a quantum simulator, developed from research in quantum computing, and offers an example of how advances in quantum computing are being used to investigate fundamental science. more...
