In theory, competition among ride-hailing companies should be a good thing, providing more options for consumers. In practice, having too many ride-hailing vehicles adds to urban congestion. How can cities balance these factors?   A new study co-authored by MIT researchers, in collaboration with the Institute for Informatics and Telematics of the National Research Council of Italy, …

Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease that can strike both children and adults. It can leave those afflicted with difficult, life-long disease management issues and potentially devastating long-term complications such as kidney failure, heart attack, stroke, blindness, and amputation. There is no prevention or cure for this disease, and rates of T1D have …

Quantum computing continues to advance at a rapid pace, but one challenge that holds the field back is mitigating the noise that plagues quantum machines. This leads to much higher error rates compared to classical computers.   This noise is often caused by imperfect control signals, interference from the environment, and unwanted interactions between qubits, …

A project funded by the STFC Hartree Centre Discovery Accelerator predicts patient response to ailments like ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease treatment with 95% accuracy. Artificial intelligence could soon help the more than 6 million1 people around the world who suffer from inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) choose the best drug for their condition. Research just published2 in PLOSone describes …

Restoring, placing, and dating ancient texts through collaboration between AI and historians. The birth of human writing marked the dawn of History and is crucial to our understanding of past civilisations and the world we live in today. For example, more than 2,500 years ago, the Greeks began writing on stone, pottery, and metal to document everything …

DNA is the language of life: our DNA forms a living record of things that went well for our ancestors, and things that didn’t. DNA tells our body (and every other organism) which proteins to produce; these proteins are tiny machines that carry out enormous tasks, from fighting off infection to helping you ace an …

Darktrace, a global leader in cyber security AI, today announced that it has released its research on Attack Path Modeling: the technology that underpins the ‘Prevent’ product suite. The research paper, titled ‘Using graph theory to identify critical nodes within computer networks’, details how graph theory can be used to map cross-domain, realistic, and risk-assessed …

Introducing query-based molecular optimization (QMO), an AI framework that can help improve discovery workflows and accelerate the delivery of new molecules and materials. A series of images derived using a generative adversarial network (GAN) trained on images of viruses and molecules. Introducing query-based molecular optimization (QMO), an AI framework that can help improve discovery workflows …

Rackspace Technology® (NASDAQ: RXT), a leading end-to-end, multicloud technology solutions company, today announced a new research report that finds that while Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML) are on nearly every organization’s radar much work remains to be done to tap their full potential. Rackspace Technology polled 1,870 global IT leaders, across industries, including manufacturing, …

AS ALGORITHMS ANALYZE MAMMOGRAMS AND SMARTPHONES CAPTURE LIVED EXPERIENCES, RESEARCHERS ARE DEBATING THE USE OF AI IN PUBLIC HEALTH. John Quackenbush was frustrated with Google. It was January 2020, and a team led by researchers from Google Health had just published a study in Nature about an artificial intelligence (AI) system they had developed to analyze mammograms for …
