An Ethical Eye on AI

Researchers have found a mathematical means of helping regulators and business manage and police Artificial Intelligence systems' biases towards making unethical, and potentially very costly and ...

Artificial Intelligence Makes Blurry Faces Look More Than 60 Times Sharper

Researchers have developed an AI tool that can turn blurry faces into eerily convincing computer-generated portraits, in finer detail than ever before. Previous methods can scale an image to eight ...

New Mathematical Model Can More Effectively Track Epidemics

As COVID-19 spreads worldwide, leaders are relying on mathematical models to make public health and economic decisions. A new model improves tracking of epidemics by accounting for mutations in ...

To Predict an Epidemic, Evolution Can't Be Ignored

Whether it's coronavirus or misinformation, scientists can use mathematical models to predict how something will spread across populations. But what happens if a pathogen mutates, or information ...

Smokers Good at Math Are More Likely to Want to Quit

For smokers who are better at math, the decision to quit just adds up, a new study suggests. Researchers found that smokers who scored higher on a test of math ability were more likely than others to ...

An Ant-Inspired Approach to Mathematical Sampling

Researchers have observed the exploratory behavior of ants to inform the development of a more efficient mathematical sampling ...

Achievement Isn't Why More Men Are Majoring in Physics, Engineering and Computer Science

Researchers have found that the reason there are more undergraduate men than women majoring in physics, engineering and computer science is not because men are higher achievers. On the contrary, the ...

Scientists Develop Method to Help Epidemiologists Map Spread of COVID-19

Scientists have developed a method they believe will help epidemiologists more efficiently predict the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. Their new study outlines a solution to the SIR epidemic model, ...

Solution to Century-Old Math Problem Could Predict Transmission of Infectious Diseases

An academic has achieved a milestone in statistical/mathematical physics by solving a 100-year-old physics problem -- the discrete diffusion equation in finite ...

Parents With Degrees Give Their Children Significant Advantage in Math

Children of parents with a degree are almost a year of schooling ahead in math by the age 11 than peers whose parents have just GCSEs, a new study has ...

Game Theory Suggests More Efficient Cancer Therapy

Mathematicians are using game theory to model how this competition could be leveraged, so cancer treatment -- which also takes a toll on the patient's body -- might be administered more ...

A Breakthrough in Estimating the Size of a (Mostly Hidden) Network

A newly discovered connection between control theory and network dynamical systems could help estimate the size of a network even when a small portion is accessible. Understanding the spread of ...

Researchers Challenge Accuracy of Methods That Analyze Trees of Life

When species under a taxonomic umbrella have faced forks in the road, leading to extinction or adaptation, the path taken has been difficult to follow. Scientists now argue that long-used approaches ...

STEM Students Learn as Well Online as in Classrooms

Students learned just as much in online STEM college courses as they did in traditional classroom settings, and at a fraction of the cost, according to a first-of-its-kind ...

Researchers Hope to Improve Future Epidemic Predictions

As the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic, a new mathematical model could offer insights on how to improve future epidemic predictions based on how information mutates as it is transmitted ...

How to Break New Records in the 200 Meters

Usain Bolt's 200m record has not been beaten for ten years and Florence Griffith Joyner's for more than thirty years. And what about if the secret behind beating records was to use ...

Mathematicians Develop New Theory to Explain Real-World Randomness

Brownian motion describes the random movement of particles in fluids, however, this revolutionary model only works when a fluid is static, or at equilibrium. In real-life, fluids often contain ...

Inverse Design Software Automates Design Process for Optical, Nanophotonic Structures

Researchers created an inverse design codebase called SPINS that can help researchers explore different design methodologies to find fabricable optical and nanophotonic ...

How Drones Can Hear Walls

One drone, four microphones and a loudspeaker: nothing more is needed to determine the position of walls and other flat surfaces within a ...

Not a 'Math Person'? You May Be Better at Learning to Code Than You Think
