Measuring ability of artificial intelligence to learn is difficult

Organizations looking to benefit from the artificial intelligence (AI) revolution should be cautious about putting all their eggs in one basket, a study has found. more...

'Statistics anxiety' is real, and new research suggests targeted ways to handle it

A new study uses an analytical technique called 'network science' to determine factors contributing to statistics anxiety among psychology majors. more...

Mathematical model can improve our knowledge on cancer

Researchers have developed a new mathematical tool, which can improve our understanding of what happens when cells lose their polarity (direction) in diseases such as cancer. The result is advancing our understanding of how the fertilized egg cell develops into a complete organism. Biological shapes, like individual organs or an entire body, can be reproduced or maintained with great accuracy, just like in the embryonic development or during the adult stage. more...

Multimaterial 3D printing used to develop fast response stiffness-tunable soft actuator

Researchers have designed and fabricated a fast-response, stiffness tunable (FRST) soft actuator which is able to complete a softening-stiffening cycle within 32 seconds. more...

New mathematical model can help save endangered species

One of the greatest challenges in saving endangered species is to predict if an animal population will die out. Accurate and reliable models are crucial for conservationists. more...

Immigrant kids in U.S. deliberately build STEM skills

US immigrant children study more math and science in high school and college, which leads to their greater presence in STEM careers, according to new findings. more...

Better security achieved with randomly generating biological encryption keys

Data breaches, hacked systems and hostage malware are frequently topics of evening news casts -- including stories of department store, hospital, government and bank data leaking into unsavory hands -- but now a team of engineers has an encryption key approach that is unclonable and not reverse-engineerable, protecting information even as computers become faster and nimbler. more...
