Artificial intelligence unlocks extreme weather mysteries

From lake-draining drought in California to bridge-breaking floods in China, extreme weather is wreaking havoc. Preparing for weather extremes in a changing climate remains a challenge, however, because their causes are complex ...

DeepTFactor predicts transcription factors

A joint research team from KAIST and UCSD has developed a deep neural network named DeepTFactor that predicts transcription factors from protein sequences. DeepTFactor will serve as a useful tool for understanding the regulatory ...

Ancient hominins used fire to make stone tools

Human ancestors not only knew how to use fire, they also developed sophisticated technologies for making tools. Researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science recently employed cutting-edge technologies of their own to ...

Intelligent software tackles plant cell jigsaw puzzle

Imagine working on a jigsaw puzzle with so many pieces that even the edges seem indistinguishable from others at the puzzle's center. And to make matters worse, the pieces are not only numerous, but ever-changing. In fact, ...

New AI could help diagnose dogs suffering from chronic pain

CKCS are predisposed to CM—a disease which causes deformity of the skull, the neck (cranial cervical vertebrae) and, in some extreme cases, lead to spinal cord damage called syringomyelia (SM). While SM is straightforward ...
