New Artificial Intelligence system can decode your mind

New Artificial

New Artificial Intelligence system can decode your mind Washington | Scientists have developed a new artificial intelligence system that can decode the human mind, and interpret what a person is seeing by analysing brain scans. The advance could aid efforts to improve artificial intelligence (AI) and lead to new insights into brain function. Critical to the research is a type of algorithm called a convolutional neural network, which has been instrumental in enabling computers and smartphones to recognise faces and objects. “That type of network has made an enormous impact…

Tiny magnetic

Tiny magnetic robots could treat hard-to-reach body parts Beijing | Scientists have developed a swarm of robots measuring about the size of a blood cell that can be remotely operated to diagnose and treat illness in hard-to- reach areas of the human body. Tiny magnetic : The robots, manufactured by coating tiny algae with magnetic particles, can be tracked in tissue close to the skin’s surface by imaging the algae’s natural fluorescence, and in hard-to-reach deeper tissue by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In tests, a swarm of robots a few…

New form of matter ‘excitonium’ discovered

excitonium

New form of matter ‘excitonium’ discovered Los Angeles | Scientists have proven the existence of new form of matter called excitonium – which was first theorised almost 50 years ago. Researchers from University of California Berkeley and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the US studied non-doped crystals of the transition metal dichalcogenide titanium diselenide (1T-TiSe2). Excitonium is a condensate – it exhibits macroscopic quantum phenomena, like a superconductor. It is made up of excitons, particles that are formed in a very strange quantum mechanical pairing, namely that of an…
