Artificial intelligence, or AI, is an umbrella term for machine learning and deep learning. It is where a machine takes in information from its surroundings and, from that, makes the most optimal decision appropriate to the situation.
Cancer diagnosis requires a lengthy process of multiple analyses of tissue biopsies, impeding the quick and early detection of cancers.
Especially activities in the field of artificial intelligence, like teaching robots to walk or precise automatic image recognition, demand ever more powerful, yet at the same time more economical computer chips.
In a recent study of genes involved in brain functioning, their previously unknown features have been uncovered by bioinformaticians from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and the Institute of Mathematical Problems of Biology, RAS. The findings are reported in PLOS One.
AZoLifeSciences speaks to agricultural scientists about their research into cover crops, and how this can help sustainable farming practices.
Researchers have created novel image processing techniques for microscopes that can decrease the time for post-processing by up to several thousand-fold.
An MRI scan used for heart disease could help assess whether children's cancers are especially aggressive and spot early signs that treatments are working.
The University of Kentucky announced a research collaboration with Atomwise, an industry leader in using artificial intelligence (AI) for small molecule discovery, to explore potential COVID-19 therapies.
A molecular biologist is working with a world leader in artificial intelligence-based drug discovery to help find a molecule that could prevent SARS-CoV-2.
Forensic Genomics, a dynamic new peer-reviewed journal, will launch its preview issue at the annual International Symposium on Human Identification (ISHI) in September 2020.
Excess white fat causes obesity, which in turn can drive metabolic diseases that are growing at epidemic rates around the world.
A global race is underway to discover a vaccine, drug, or combination of treatments that can disrupt the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes the COVID-19 disease, and prevent widespread deaths.
Scientists have developed a technique that could significantly reduce the time of discovering potential new antibody-based drugs to treat disease.
For the very first time, artificial intelligence (AI) has been used to discover a new type of antibiotic.
