Early-Warning for Seizures Could Be a Game-Changer for Epilepsy Patients

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, information science, mathematics, neuroscience

A new mathematical algorithm examines data from EEG and brain implants to learn each epilepsy patient’s unique brain pattern signatures. The system can predict the onset of a seizure within an hour, allowing the patient to take necessary interventions.

Reinforcement learning algorithms score higher than humans, other AI systems at classic video games

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, information science, robotics/AI

A team of researchers at Uber AI Labs in San Francisco has developed a set of learning algorithms that proved to be better at playing classic video games than human players or other AI systems. In their paper published in the journal Nature, the researchers explain how their algorithms differ from others and why they believe they have applications in robotics, language processing and even designing new drugs.

Qudits and High-Dimensional Quantum Computing

Posted by in categories: computing, information science, quantum physics

10 November 2020

Qudit is a multi-level computational unit alternative to the conventional 2-level qubit. Compared to qubit, qudit provides a larger state space to store and process information, and thus can provide reduction of the circuit complexity, simplification of the experimental setup and enhancement of the algorithm efficiency. This review provides an overview of qudit-based quantum computing covering a variety of topics ranging from circuit building, algorithm design, to experimental methods. We first discuss the qudit gate universality and a variety of qudit gates including the pi/8 gate, the SWAP gate, and the multi-level controlled-gate. We then present the qudit version of several representative quantum algorithms including the Deutsch-Jozsa algorithm, the quantum Fourier transform, and the phase estimation algorithm.

Art Installation Helps Plants Grow

Posted by in categories: food, information science

This art installation enhances plant growth while taking pesticides out of the equation through ultraviolet light. The GROW project shines vertical lights across 215000 square feet of farmland creating a luminous dreamscape that highlights the beauty of agriculture, and displays nature as the ultimate work of art it is!

New machine learning theory raises questions about nature of science

Posted by in categories: information science, robotics/AI, science, space

A novel computer algorithm, or set of rules, that accurately predicts the orbits of planets in the solar system could be adapted to better predict and control the behavior of the plasma that fuels fusion facilities designed to harvest on Earth the fusion energy that powers the sun and stars.

Social media must not be allowed to destroy democracy, says the EU President

Posted by in categories: government, information science, law

All governments across the globe are the same they don’t want a free flow of information that would challenge their authority and decisions that they think are good for us, maybe because they want to maintain law and order in society.

I am against the control of social media by the government and I am also against the algorithms which are designed to make people addicted to social media by showing the thing that appeals most to them for profit.

What are your opinions on this topic, how we can achieve the balance between these challenging aspects of social media use?
