Google PlaNet Can Look At A Photo, Tell You Where It Was Taken
Geotags? GPS? Pssh. That's old school. Google has a brand-new trick for figuring out where the photos you've taken happen to be, and it doesn't need any extra data from your camera to do it—just the p...
Wired For Gaming: Brain Differences Found In Compulsive Video Game Players
Brain scans from nearly 200 adolescent boys provide evidence that the brains of compulsive video game players are wired differently. Chronic video game play is associated with hyperconnectivity betwee...
High-fat Diet Prompts Immune Cells To Start Eating Connections Between Neurons
When a high-fat diet causes us to become obese, it also appears to prompt normally bustling immune cells in our brain to become sedentary and start consuming the connections between our neurons, scien...
3-D Map Of The Brain
The animal brain is so complex, it would take a supercomputer and vast amounts of data to create a detailed 3-D model of the billions of neurons that power it. But computer scientists and a professor ...
Eating, Running, Commuting: How Your Device Knows Your Life through Images
Researchers have created an artificial neural network that identifies the activities in a user’s average day through a catalogue of images.
Scientists Reveal Brain Network For Observed Social Threat Interactions
Observing one person threatening another is a commonplace event. Now, in research published in eLife, scientists have used large-scale neural recording and big data analysis in monkeys to enable a fir...
Important Step In Artificial Intelligence: Stylized Letters Classified By Their Images
In what marks a significant step forward for artificial intelligence, researchers at UC Santa Barbara have demonstrated the functionality of a simple artificial neural circuit. For the first time, a c...
BBC Video - The Secret Life of Chaos
Chaos theory has a bad name, conjuring up images of unpredictable weather, economic crashes and science gone wrong. But there is a fascinating and hidden side to Chaos, one that scientists are only no...
