How is it possible for different findings to emerge from science over time? Considering this question can shine a light into a process that may seem like a black box and help us make sense of scientific study in its earlier stages.
Sukarma Rani Thareja from India, wrote a poem to celebrate women in science.
Artificial intelligence is a rapidly growing field of science and technology, yet the potential it holds for enhancing some of the world’s most powerful experimental tools such as neutron and x-ray probes is yet to be fully explored. Applying machine learning methods to processes within these international experimental facilities could help to overcome some of the biggest challenges faced by scientists today. This includes automating some of the handling, processing, and linking together of large datasets. At Institut Laue-Langevin, exploratory projects are already underway to ensure scattering science also reaps the benefits of artificial intelligence research.
Zuzana Hudáčová, a 15-year old student from Slovakia, has always liked to go to labs and make experiments when she had free time.
Dr. Brian Cahill, Programme Manager of the TRAIN@Ed MSCA COFUND project at the Institute for Academic Development of University of Edinburgh and member of EuroScience board, explains the reason why it is paramount for young researchers to broaden their skills and horizons, but also to contribute to the policy making process that influences their future.
Internet, audiovisual media and digital technology are transforming our world. Their potential, however, will not be fully realised until they become fully accessible, enabling all citizens to participate in everyday life.
Although science constantly proves that people are more alike than different, racism continues to exist at every level and to increase sharply.
The European Synchrotron Radiation Facility was placed into standby mode on December 2018 to make way for a revolutionary new synchrotron, the Extremely Brilliant Source.
Children are capable of complex thinking skills prior to being able to speak, but different types of play are critical to develop skills related to STEM fields.
A new legislation put into force on January 2019 obliges hundreds of researchers in Greece to draft detailed budgets months or even one year in advance.
Prof. Hirche and her team are using artificial intelligence to develop advanced robotic systems that can work alongside humans in a safe and intuitive manner.
This article reviews the Nobel history since inception which shows that the Prizes in science conferred on individuals in the first 50 years are shifting to the Prizes being shared. It is,in part, because the science has become more complex, collaborative, expansive, and expensive. With the critical need for teamwork to tackle Big Science, we recommend that the policy of “no more than three” sharing the Prize be loosened on case by case basis and the nomination be made open for scientific organisations. We also suggest concrete steps for improving the gender gap among the Nobel Laureates. This necessitates proactive nominations of Nobel worthy work done by women and making structural changes in Nobel committees toward better gender ratio. Finally, our analysis shows that the U.S. is emerging as a Nobel Super Power leading to a divide not only with European countries but the world at large.
