One of the most fundamental questions about climate change is also one of the thorniest: How much, exactly, will the Earth warm in response to future greenhouse gas emissions? The answer, scientists say, lies in the sky above our heads….
Paralyzed Man’s Brain Waves Get Turned Into Sentences on Computer, Scientists âThrilledâ Beyond Words
Researchers at UC San Francisco have successfully developed a “speech neuroprosthesis” that has enabled a man with severe paralysis to communicate in sentencesâtranslating signals from his brain to the vocal tract directly into words that appear as text on a screen. The achievement builds on more than a decade of effort by UCSF neurosurgeon Edward […]
The Biden administration’s bloated $6.4 trillion budget proposal is more costly than all of World War II and is the equivalent of nearly $50,000 in government spending per American family. This budget prioritizes advancing the socialist Green New Deal, expanding…
Cameras attached to stop lights and other posts on bridges in Seoul aren’t there to tell if you’re speeding; they’re doing a much more important job—a lifesaving job. Using artificial intelligence, programmers at the Seoul Institute of Technology are building a system of recognizing body movements and other cues to help identify whether someone is […]

(Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech)) Researchers from Skoltech have found a way to help computer vision algorithms process satellite images of the Earth more accurately, even with minimal data for training. This will make various remote sensing tasks easier for machines and, ultimately, the people who use their data.
Normally limited to listening to your every request for music to play in your living room or assembling things in a factory, a robot paramedic that can perform CPR will soon be joining first responder teams across the south of England. For the very first time, an automaton has been made that can perform the […]

(Cell Press) No longer science fiction, farm robots are already here–and they have created two possible extremes for the future of agriculture and its impacts on the environment, argues agricultural economist Thomas Daum in a Science & Society article published July 13 in the journal Trends in Ecology & Evolution.
(University at Buffalo) Scientists from the U.S. and South Africa are launching a campaign to map marine, freshwater, and terrestrial species and ecosystems in one of Earth’s biodiversity hotspots: the Greater Cape Floristic Region at the southwestern edge of South Africa.
Whereas a cancer screening requires making an individual appointment with a physician, this simple blood test can screen for 50 separate cancers and detect them at an above-average rate. Aimed at individuals who are 50+, the ease and thoroughness of the test process can help detect difficult-to-diagnose cancers when they’re in their early stages such […]
