Survey: China is slowly diminishing US dominance over science

Posted by in categories: energy, science

China has more than doubled the percentage of ‘highly cited researchers’ over the last five years.

China has a steady increase in the number of “high-impact scientists” than the United States, which is still the leader but has seen a steady drop over the years.

Research fuels the race for knowledge.

Meta Trained an AI on 48M Science Papers. It Was Shut Down After 2 Days

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

Galactica was supposed to help “organize science.” Instead, it spewed misinformation.

In the first year of the pandemic, science happened at light speed. More than 100,000 papers were published on COVID in those first 12 months — an unprecedented human effort that produced an unprecedented deluge of new information.

It would have been impossible to read and comprehend every one of those studies. No human being could (and, perhaps, none would want to).

INCITE program awards supercomputing time to 56 projects to accelerate science and engineering research

Posted by in categories: energy, engineering, physics, science, supercomputing, sustainability

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Science announced allocations of supercomputer access to 56 high-impact computational science projects for 2023 through its Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program. These awards, which will pursue transformational advances in science and engineering, account for 60% of the available time on the leadership-class supercomputers at DOEs Argonne and Oak Ridge national laboratories.

The projects will support a broad range of large-scale research campaigns to advance knowledge in areas ranging from astrophysics to sustainable energy technologies to materials design and discovery.

Jointly managed by the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) and the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF), the INCITE program is the primary means by which the facilities fulfill their mission to advance open science by providing the scientific community with access to their powerful supercomputing resources. The ALCF and OLCF are DOE Office of Science user facilities.

Hevolution Foundation Launches Grants Program to Encourage Research into the Science of Aging in Saudi Arabia

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, business, life extension, science

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia—()— Hevolution Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides grants and early-stage investments to incentivize research and entrepreneurship in healthspan science, announces a new grants program to encourage research into the aging process in Saudi Arabia, as part of the growing Saudi scientific ecosystem. The program, Hevolution’s Open Call for Grant Applications in Saudi Arabia, will provide funding of up to 500,000 Saudi Riyals for local researchers with an interest in the mechanisms of aging.

“This grants program is the first of many through which we aim to encourage the development of the field of aging research in Saudi Arabia” Tweet this

“Saudi Arabia’s population is relatively young but has high rates of age-related conditions such as heart disease and diabetes,” commented Mehmood Khan, MD, Hevolution Foundation’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our hope is that by tackling the aging process itself, we can alleviate the burden of diseases and conditions of aging for the people of Saudi Arabia and worldwide. With this pilot program and others that we have in the works, we hope to enable Saudi Arabia’s scientific community to be a key player in the global charge to reduce the burden of age-related diseases and conditions that affect most of humanity.”
