Do you really know what causes you to formulate the beliefs you hold dear? Would it surprise you to learn that you’re not in full control? As human beings, we are wired to construct our opinions in highly specific ways—and more often than not, evolution wins out over conscious decision-making. Read on to examine exactly how this occurs, and find out what you can do to regain sovereignty over your own perceptions, assumptions, and life choices. Think you’re the only one in charge? Not so fast…for all of us, there are forces at play that merit a deeper look.
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.
Philosophers and social scientists have been hampered by inability to define what is meant by “identity”. This is because they have been unable to clarify the term “sameness” on which the definition depends. As a result, specialists in the humanities have taken very different approaches to understanding “identity”. This has resulted in widespread confusion, even chaos, in its application. Science is now able to determine precisely what is meant by “sameness” in the individual and in the group. It can, therefore, define identity objectively and succinctly at these levels. The article asks why there appears to be reluctance to accept the new paradigm.
Bringing the IoT to the construction industry in the form of smart sensors greatly raises the bar for quality and efficiency.
Zuzana Hudáčová, a 15-year old student from Slovakia, has always liked to go to labs and make experiments when she had free time.
In order to understand the science behind the recent mass-burning of the Brazilian Amazon, we must put this man-made catastrophe in the context of Brazilian politics.
Huge issues are facing our societies; climate change, antimicrobial resistance, feeding a growing population, resource shortages and pollution to name a few. Humanity is going to need the best people doing the best research in order for us to find ways to meet these challenges.
There are multiple reasons why schools, students and society all benefit when schools invest in robotics programs. Plus, getting such a program off the ground isn’t as difficult as it might sound.
Introduced in the 70s, audio description has improved access to several cultural services, and it has increased freedom, independence and life quality to a vast portion of the audience suffering from sight loss.
The relentless drive for research excellence has created a culture in modern science that cares exclusively about what is achieved and not about how it is achieved.
The good news for our robotics and space programs is that human beings can build machines that vastly outperform us in durability. It takes some clever engineering, but humanity regularly builds probes and robots that can survive long journeys through some truly astonishing conditions.
One of the many challenges people with various degrees of sensory disabilities face is their difficulty to access mainstream products and services and therefore they are often excluded from enjoying audio-visual services.
