AI-based approach matches protein interaction partners

Proteins are the building blocks of life, involved in virtually every biological process. Understanding how proteins interact with each other is crucial for deciphering the complexities of cellular functions, and has significant ...

Observations investigate galaxy cluster Abell S1136

An international team of astronomers has employed the Australian Square Kilometer Array Pathfinder (ASKAP) radio telescope to perform radio observations of a galaxy cluster known as Abell S1136. Results of the observation ...

Researchers develop tuneable anti-counterfeiting material

Counterfeiters are becoming increasingly more sophisticated in forging everything from diplomas and currency to medications and artwork. While protective measures such as luminescent markings (which glow under ultraviolet ...

New computational model of real neurons could lead to better AI

Nearly all the neural networks that power modern artificial intelligence tools such as ChatGPT are based on a 1960s-era computational model of a living neuron. A new model developed at the Flatiron Institute's Center for ...

Navigating the labyrinth: How AI tackles complex data sampling

The world of artificial intelligence (AI) has recently seen significant advancements in generative models, a type of machine-learning algorithm that "learns" patterns from sets of data in order to generate new, similar sets ...
