|Meditation for mind-control|
Scientists have discovered that mindful meditation can help subjects learn and improve the ability to mind-control brain computer interfaces (BCIs).
|Personal interactions are important drivers of STEM identity in girls|
Researchers found that nuanced interactions between teachers and campers at a coding camp for middle school girls as well as among the girls themselves impacted how girls viewed themselves as coders.
|AI could expand healing with bioscaffolds|
Artificial intelligence can speed the development of 3D-printed bioscaffolds that help injuries heal, according to researchers.
|A computer predicts your thoughts, creating images based on them|
Researchers have developed a technique in which a computer models visual perception by monitoring human brain signals. In a way, it is as if the computer tries to imagine what a human is thinking about. As a result of this imagining, the computer is able to produce entirely new information, such as fictional images that were never before seen. The technique is based on a novel brain-computer interface.
|New design principles for spin-based quantum materials|
A new design criteria for enhancing the spin lifetime of a class of quantum materials could support Internet of Things devices and other resource-intensive technologies.
|World's smallest ultrasound detector created|
Researchers have developed the world's smallest ultrasound detector. It is based on miniaturized photonic circuits on top of a silicon chip. With a size 100 times smaller than an average human hair, the new detector can visualize features that are much smaller than previously possible, leading to what is known as super-resolution imaging.
|New data processing module makes deep neural networks smarter|
Artificial intelligence researchers have improved the performance of deep neural networks by combining feature normalization and feature attention modules into a single module that they call attentive normalization. The hybrid module improves the accuracy of the system significantly, while using negligible extra computational power.
|Security software for autonomous vehicles|
Before autonomous vehicles participate in road traffic, they must demonstrate conclusively that they do not pose a danger to others. New software prevents accidents by predicting different variants of a traffic situation every millisecond.
|Engineers improve signal processing for small fiber optic cables|
Tiny circuits can go the distance. Researchers have mapped a noise-reducing magneto-optical response that occurs in fiber-optic communications, opening the door for new materials technologies.
|Artificial intelligence and machine learning could enhance scientific peer review, researchers say|
Artificial intelligence and machine learning could enhance scientific peer review as scientists rush to publish COVID-related research, according to experts.
|Light processing improves robotic sensing, study finds|
A team of researchers uncovered how the human brain processes bright and contrasting light, which they say is a key to improving robotic sensing and enabling autonomous agents to team with humans.
|New machine learning-assisted method rapidly classifies quantum sources|
Engineers have created a new machine learning-assisted method that could make quantum photonic circuit development more efficient by rapidly pre-selecting these solid-state quantum emitters.
|Quirky response to magnetism presents quantum physics mystery|
Scientists describe the quirky behavior of one such magnetic topological insulator. The new article includes experimental evidence that intrinsic magnetism in the bulk of manganese bismuth telluride (MnBi2Te4) also extends to the electrons on its electrically conductive surface. Such materials could be just right for making qubits, but this one doesn't obey the rules.
|Evidence of power: Phasing quantum annealers into experiments from nonequilibrium physics|
Scientists have used commercially available quantum annealers, a type of quantum computer, to experimentally probe the validity of an important mechanism from nonequilibrium physics in open quantum systems. The results not only shed light into the extent of applicability of this mechanism and an extension of it, but also showcase how quantum annealers can serve as effective platforms for quantum simulations.
|Detailed picture of US bachelor's programs in computing|
With the aim of providing a comprehensive look at computing education, the study includes information on enrollments, degree completions, faculty demographics, and faculty salaries.
