New framework applies machine learning to atomistic modeling

Northwestern University researchers have developed a new framework using machine learning that improves the accuracy of interatomic potentials—the guiding rules describing how atoms interact—in new materials design. The ...

Opening up the black box of heterogeneous catalysis

Researchers from ICIQ's López group present a new method that allows for the rational design of heterogeneous catalysts. After applying principal component analysis and regression (PCA) to the adsorption energies of 71 different ...

Helping robots learn to see in 3-D

Autonomous robots can inspect nuclear power plants, clean up oil spills in the ocean, accompany fighter planes into combat and explore the surface of Mars.

Meet the freaky fanged frog from the Philippines

Researchers at the University of Kansas have described a new species of fanged frog discovered in the Philippines that's nearly indistinguishable from a species on a neighboring island except for its unique mating call and ...

A new evergreen species of Rhamnaceae found in Guangxi

Rhamnella in the family of Rhamnaceae is a small genus. To date, 10 species have been accepted into this genus. In field investigations, researchers from the Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical garden (XTBG) found two Rhamnella ...
