Scientists have researched the effectiveness of deep learning techniques for discovering exotic particles and found some significant improvements over previous methods. They believe deep learning could help analyze data from the Large Hadron Collider.
London's tech economy is booming as apps and games made there entertain the world and experts predict the first global trillion-dollar company will rise in the UK, most likely in big data. What is the secret to this rapid success?
If you have ever been near a train when it starts to move, you see (and hear) something interesting. The engine car at the front starts to move and in doing so, you get this wave of compressing couplings between all the cars. There is some interesting physics here.
(Phys.org) —Physicists Joseph Silk of Institut d'Astrophysique de Paris and Jens Chluba of Johns Hopkins University have together published a Perspective piece in the journal Science, where they discuss the future of cosmological research in the wake of the detection two month ago, of primordial gravitational ...
Martin Plenio – Towards quantum technologies Youris.com The idea is that information—represented by physical quantities such as the spin or the polarisation of an individual photon—can be transmitted with the help of so-called quantum entanglement.
Extrasolar planet HD189733b rises from behind its star. The new work presented here shows this planet has 20 times more methane than previously thought. Image Credit: ESA The search for life is largely limited to the search for water.
In recent years, roboticists have made rapid advances in the technologies that are bringing closer the kind of advanced robots that Asimov envisaged. Increasingly, robots and humans are working together on factory floors, driving cars, flying aircraft and even helping around the home. And that raises an interesting question: do we need a set of Asimov-like laws to govern the behaviour of robots as they become more advanced?
As a science writer, it’s alarmingly easy to overstate a scientific discovery’s importance. I often must go out of my way to dial back the enthusiasm,... Read Full Post (Can fossils of inflation provide quantum gravity clues?
