  • Tue, 24 May 2022 19:49:01 +0000: AI reveals unsuspected math underlying search for exoplanets - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    The astronomers' goal: find an artificial intelligence algorithm to interpret microlensing events captured by the upcoming Roman Space Telescope and speed detection of exoplanets around other stars. They achieved that, but the AI told them something unexpected and deep: the theory used to infer stellar and exoplanetary masses and orbits from observations was incomplete. Digging into the mathematics, they uncovered a theory that explains all types of microlensing events and possible ambiguities in interpreting them.
  • Tue, 17 May 2022 13:48:42 +0000: The numbers don't lie: Australia is failing at maths and we need to find a new formula to arrest the decline - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Australia has suffered a significant drop in teenage maths proficiency in the past 20 years -- sliding from 11th in the OECD rankings to 29th place out of 38 countries, prompting widespread debate over potential curriculum changes. One researcher says hand gestures could stop the slide.
  • Thu, 12 May 2022 16:18:24 +0000: How cells correct errors under time pressure - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    How does a cell balance risk and speed when dividing? Scientists have developed and experimentally tested the first mathematical theory that describes the cell's best strategy for dividing safely and efficiently.
  • Mon, 09 May 2022 15:20:38 +0000: Development of an ensemble model to anticipate short-term COVID-19 hospital demand - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Scientists identified the most relevant predictive variables for anticipating hospital demand and proposed using an ensemble model based on the average of the predictions of several individual models.
  • Mon, 25 Apr 2022 19:43:18 +0000: An easier way to teach robots new skills - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Researchers have developed a technique that enables a robot to learn a new pick-and-place task with only a handful of human demonstrations. This could allow a human to reprogram a robot to grasp never-before-seen objects, presented in random poses, in about 15 minutes.
