Yesterday, the European Space Agency said goodbye to one of its spacecraft that has helped pave the way for a new method of studying the Universe: the LISA Pathfinder, a car-sized probe that has…
A giant technology company will release up to 20 million bacteria-filled, buzzing mosquitoes this summer in Fresno, California.
A team of Russian and American scientists at Harvard University has created and tested the world’s first 51 qubit quantum computer. Mikhail Lukin, the co-founder of the Russian Quantum Center, says the new system’s capabilities make it easily the most complex computing machine of its kind.
Human follicular helper T cells engaging in synaptic interactions with germinal centre B cells release dopamine stored in chromogranin B+ granules, causing rapid externalization of ICOS ligand, which in turn enhances CD40L delivery to the synaptic cleft and synaptic contact, and results in an accelerated response.
Jupiter’s Great Red Spot will get a flyby from NASA’s Juno probe.
As part of its shift toward high-tech businesses, the 125-year-old company, number 40 on our list of the 50 Smartest Companies, is threading artificial intelligence throughout its operations, starting with its scientists.
We employ deep multi-agent reinforcement learning to model the emergence of cooperation. The new notion of sequential social dilemmas allows us to model how rational agents interact, and arrive at more or less cooperative behaviours depending on the nature of the environment and the agents’ cognitive capacity.
