An organization’s ability to quickly detect and respond to anomalies is critical to success in a digitally transforming culture. Google Cloud customers can strengthen this ability by using rich artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) capabilities in conjunction with an enterprise-class streaming analytics platform. We refer to this combination of fast data and advanced analytics as real-time AI. There are …

A Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory team cultured rodent-derived neurons on microelectrode arrays and allowed the cultures to form networks, supplementing them with astrocytes and oligodendrocytes — cell types that play a critical role in neuronal health and function. Pictured is an immunofluorescence image of a complex culture, showing neurons (stained red), astrocytes (cyan) and oligodendrocytes (green). …

As part of the federal government’s effort to speed the development of quantum computers, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded the University of California, Berkeley, $25 million over five years to establish a multi-university institute focused on advancing quantum science and engineering and training a future workforce to build and use quantum computers. The …
