Hybrid material enables nanogenerators to harvest energy from friction and provide tactile sensing
Transcript abundance isn’t a reliable indicator of protein quantity, contrary to studies’ suggestions.
Scientists discover transcripts from the same gene that can express both proteins and noncoding RNA. Â
This week’s series of thrilling games with the world’s best players, in the country where Go originated, has been the highest possible pinnacle for AlphaGo as a competitive program. For that reason, the Future of Go Summit is our final match event with AlphaGo. To mark the end of the event we wanted to give a special gift to fans of Go around the world, publishing a special set of 50 AlphaGo vs AlphaGo games, played at full length time controls, which we believe contain many new and interesting ideas and strategies for the Go community to explore.
You blink 15-20 times per minute. If you watch a 150-minute movie, that translates to about 15 minutes worth of screen time. That’s a lot of Middle Earth to miss! (No wonder the Eye of Sauron never blinks.) Don’t worry though: studies suggest that our brains have figured out a way to compensate.Related: Time Isn’t Constant For Your Brain
There will always be an endless list of chores to complete and work to do, and a culture of relentless productivity tells us to get to it right away and feel terribly guilty about any time wasted. But the truth is, a life spent dutifully responding to emails is a dull one indeed. And “wasted”…
Watch what happens when physicists play with fidget spinners for the first time.
A technology originally developed to smooth out and pattern high-powered laser beams for the National Ignition Facility (NIF) can be used to 3D print metal objects faster than ever before, according to a new study by Lawrence Livermore researchers.
Theoretical physicist Lucien Hardy is pushing wants to push the boundaries of quantum physics by performing a Bell test using humans as links.
Like the Internet, AI is likely to be a massively disruptive technology change that will bring about enormous social, political and cultural change.
The genes account for just a tiny fraction of the variation in test scores, experts say. Many are yet to be found, and environmental factors are also greatly important.
Google’s AutoML makes it easier to design better AI.
Human trials are on the cards.
OpenAI just announced it has created an AI system that can learn to complete a task after watching one demonstration in a simulated environment.
Our big bang could have been a white hole resulting from a different dimension’s supernova.
A biochemical compound called adenosine is both the cause of osteoarthritis and the subject of promising research for a new joint treatment to prevent mill
For the first time, scientists have succeeded in studying the strength of hydrogen bonds in a single molecule using an atomic force microscope. Researchers from the University of Basel’s Swiss Nanoscience Institute network have reported the results in the journal Science Advances.
Age-associated B cells (ABCs) were discovered in 2011 to be phenotypically and functionally unique cells common in the spleen, blood, and bone marrow. Howe
Organs-on-chip could be the next step towards personalized medicine. It could also be an alternative to animal experiments.
National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) physicists have solved the seemingly intractablepuzzle of how to control the quantum properties of individual charged molecules, or molecular ions. Thesolution is to use the same kind of “quantum logic” that drives an experimental NIST atomic clock.
RebelMouse is the best CMS for social websites. Centralized, modern, iterative and powering the fastest growing sites on the web.
The cosmic distances to the most distant objects are great, but there’s even more out there for us to explore.
Hydrogen fuel cell cars could help solve the global warming crisis, but nobody wants to buy them. Yoshikazu Tanaka, chief engineer of the Toyota Mirai, Toyota’s hydrogen fuel cell car, calls it a “chicken or the egg” problem: no one wants to purchase hydrogen cars because there are no hydrogen fuel stations, and nobody wants…
A material which incorporates nanoscale water can store and deliver energy much more efficiently, say researchers at North Carolina State University.
Researchers invented the fastest camera in the world called Frequency Recognition Algorithm for Multiple Exposures or FRAME. This camera can capture five trillion frames per second.
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) researchers, along with international collaborators, are on a mission to find particles contributing to dark matter, which is expected to make up most of the matter in the universe.
New research reveals that HIV DNA can be excised from the genomes of living animals to eliminate further infection
Storing Spotify in your pocket.
Atlanta lawmakers have committed the city to running entirely on renewable energy sources, including wind and solar, by 2035.
The funding was already approved, but now researchers can’t access it.
