AI learns to model our Universe

Researchers have successfully created a model of the Universe using artificial intelligence, reports a new study.

Facial recognition technique could improve hail forecasts

The same artificial intelligence technique typically used in facial recognition systems could help improve prediction of hailstorms and their severity, according to a new study from the National Center for Atmospheric Research ...

When should banks chase debts? New method could help them decide

Like Kenny Rogers' gambler, who has to "know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em," banks face financial risks and uncertainty when deciding when to chase consumers who default on their credit card payments and when to ...

NRL tropical cyclone forecast updates go live

Equations help predict the behavior of water in rivers

River dikes are small dams made of earth that are used to hold in the water of the course of a river, without affecting the course too much. However, when the water exceeds a certain level due to flooding, the dike breaks, ...

Computational tool predicts how gut microbiome changes over time

A new computational modeling method uses snapshots of which types of microbes are found in a person's gut to predict how the microbial community will change over time. The tool, developed by Liat Shenhav, Leah Briscoe and ...

Predictability

Predictability (also called banality) is the degree to which a correct prediction or forecast of a system's state can be made either qualitatively or quantitatively.
