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. more...
Using Wall Street secrets to reduce the cost of cloud infrastructure
Researchers have developed a 'risk-aware' model that improves the performance of cloud-computing infrastructure used across the globe. more...
AI used to test evolution's oldest mathematical model
Researchers have used artificial intelligence to make new discoveries, and confirm old ones, about one of nature's best-known mimics, opening up whole new directions of research in evolutionary biology. more...
We like our math like we like our art: Beautiful
A beautiful landscape painting, a beautiful piano sonata -- art and music are almost exclusively described in terms of aesthetics, but what about math? Beyond useful or brilliant, can an abstract idea be considered beautiful? more...
Mathematicians develop new statistical indicator
Up to now, it has taken a great deal of computational effort to detect dependencies between more than two high-dimensional variables, in particular when complicated non-linear relationships are involved. Mathematicians have now developed a dependence measure called 'distance multivariance'. more...
Occasionally we come across a problem in classical mechanics that poses particular difficulties for translation into the quantum world. A new mathematical model has provided some insights into one of them: momentum. The model uses another classical concept, that of time-of-flight. more...
Novel school improvement program can raise teaching quality while reducing inequality
A multi-national European study, looking at over 5,500 students, has found that a novel school intervention program can not only improve the mathematics scores of primary school children from disadvantaged areas, but can also lessen the achievement gap caused by socioeconomic status. more...
