Using artificial intelligence to analyze large amounts of biological data

Researchers at the University of Missouri are applying a form of artificial intelligence (AI)—previously used to analyze how National Basketball Association (NBA) players move their bodies—to now help scientists develop new drug therapies for medical treatments targeting cancers and other diseases. The type of AI, called a graph neural network, can help scientists with speeding […]

Study suggests solar energy can be cleanly converted into storable hydrogen fuel

Research led by the University of Strathclyde suggests that solar energy can be accessed and converted into hydrogen—a clean and renewable fuel. Greenhouse gas emissions need to be significantly reduced to avoid potentially catastrophic effects of climate change, with access to clean and affordable energy needed to eliminate our reliance on fossil fuels. The U.K. […]

Researchers find way to make traffic models more efficient

Models that predict traffic volume for specific times and places are used to inform everything from traffic-light patterns to the app on your phone that tells you how to get from Point A to Point B. Researchers from North Carolina State University have now demonstrated a method that reduces the computational complexity of these models, […]

Researchers now able to predict battery lifetimes with machine learning

Imagine a psychic telling your parents, on the day you were born, how long you would live. A similar experience is possible for battery chemists who are using new computational models to calculate battery lifetimes based on as little as a single cycle of experimental data. In a new study, researchers at the U.S. Department […]

Technology reduces heavy-duty diesel emissions to meet stringent CARB 2027 NOx requirements

Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) demonstrated the effectiveness of its CAT-DEF technology during the WCX World Congress Experience in Detroit, which took place April 5–7. The advancement successfully reduced heavy-duty diesel engine nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions to meet the California Air Resources Board (CARB) 2027 standards. CAT-DEF, which stands for Catalyzed Diesel Exhaust Fluid, is an […]

Vitamins, minerals improve symptoms for children with ADHD

Children with ADHD and emotional dysregulation who were given a micronutrient-dense formula made of all known vitamins and essential minerals were three times more likely to have better concentration and improved moods, research from Oregon Health & Science University found. The findings, featured on the May cover of the Journal of the American Academy of […]
