Can Artificial Intelligence Predict Earthquakes?

Can Artificial Intelligence Predict Earthquakes?

Scientists has developed machine learning techniques that could successfully predict the timing of a real earthquake. The team, from the University of Cambridge, Los Alamos National Laboratory and Boston University, identified a hidden signal leading up to earthquakes and used this ‘fingerprint’ to train a machine learning algorithm to predict future earthquakes. Their results, which could also be applied to ... Read More »

Neutron Star Collisions Create Gold, Researchers Say

Neutron Star Collisions Create Gold, Researchers Say

Witnessing a neutron star violently crash into another has helped scientist uncover secrets of the universe — including how gold was created. Based on the brightness and color of the light emitted following the merger, which closely match theoretical predictions by University of California, Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory physicists, astronomers can now say that the gold or platinum ...

Nearly Complete Tyrannosaur Fossil Discovered (Photo)

Researchers have retrieved the near-complete skeleton of one of the most ferocious tyrannosaurs to roam western North America millions of years ago. The 76-million-year-old skeleton was airlifted to the Natural History Museum of Utah by helicopter on Sunday, where it will be uncovered, prepared, and studied. “With at least 75 percent of its bones preserved, this is the most complete ...

The “First Recorded” Evidence Of Big Foot Is 50 Year Old

The "First Recorded" Evidence Of Big Foot Is 50 Year Old

Do Aliens exist? What about the Lock Ness Monster? 50 years ago two guys were “strolling through the forest” and caught video evidence of Bigfoot. IT lasts for only 59.5 seconds – but the Patterson-Gimlin film is one of the most infamous and heavily scrutinised works ever produced. The year was 1967, and two cowboys from Washington’s apple country were ... Read More »

Monstrilloida: Monster discovered in Arctic Ocean

A new species of monstrilloid copepod, Monstrillopsis planifrons sp. n., is described from an adult female that was collected beneath snow-covered sea ice during the 2014 Ice Covered Ecosystem – CAMbridge bay Process Study (ICE-CAMPS) in Dease Strait of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. Aurelie Delaforge did not purposefully seek this monster out in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut. But she found it, ... Read More »

Quantum Computing Applied as Artificial Intelligence, says new research

Quantum Computing Applied as Artificial Intelligence

Scientists from Caltech and the University of Southern California (USC) have employed quantum-compatible machine learning techniques to extract a rare Higgs boson signal from copious noise data. Despite the central role of physics in quantum computing, until now, no problem of interest for physics researchers has been resolved by quantum computing techniques. In this new work, the researchers successfully extracted ... Read More »

Researchers identify perfect place for moon base

Thanks to a study in Geophysical Research Letters, we now know where the first human settlement on the moon could be built—a massive lava tube potentially extending miles below the surface. Lava tubes are naturally occurring channels formed when a lava flow develops a hard crust, which thickens and forms a roof above the still-flowing lava stream. Once the lava ... Read More »

A bright light seen across the universe, proving Einstein right (scientists say)

A bright light seen across the universe, proving Einstein right (Researchers Say)

Researchers observing the collision of two hyperdense neutron stars have concluded that all the heaviest elements in the universe, including precious metals like gold and silver as well as substances like uranium, are created during neutron star mergers just like the one they observed. The first detection of gravitational waves from the cataclysmic merger of two neutron stars, and the ... Read More »

Flying insect biomass decreased by 75 percent over 27 years (research)

Flying insect biomass decreased by 75 percent over 27 years (research)

Scientists at Radboud University report that over the last 27 years, flying insect biomass has plummeted by 75 percent in Germany. The findings serve as a wakeup call given the current climate of accelerating decline in insect populations reported all over the world. Insects play a crucial role in ecosystem functioning, pollinating 80 percent of wild plants and providing a ... Read More »
