- Thu, 17 Jan 2019 14:26:04 +0000: Measuring ability of artificial intelligence to learn is difficult - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
Organizations looking to benefit from the artificial intelligence (AI) revolution should be cautious about putting all their eggs in one basket, a study has found.
- Wed, 16 Jan 2019 16:11:31 +0000: 'Statistics anxiety' is real, and new research suggests targeted ways to handle it - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
A new study uses an analytical technique called 'network science' to determine factors contributing to statistics anxiety among psychology majors.
- Tue, 15 Jan 2019 17:44:56 +0000: Mathematical model can improve our knowledge on cancer - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
Researchers have developed a new mathematical tool, which can improve our understanding of what happens when cells lose their polarity (direction) in diseases such as cancer. The result is advancing our understanding of how the fertilized egg cell develops into a complete organism. Biological shapes, like individual organs or an entire body, can be reproduced or maintained with great accuracy, just like in the embryonic development or during the adult stage.
- Tue, 15 Jan 2019 17:11:14 +0000: Multimaterial 3D printing used to develop fast response stiffness-tunable soft actuator - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
Researchers have designed and fabricated a fast-response, stiffness tunable (FRST) soft actuator which is able to complete a softening-stiffening cycle within 32 seconds.
- Fri, 11 Jan 2019 16:28:44 +0000: New mathematical model can help save endangered species - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
One of the greatest challenges in saving endangered species is to predict if an animal population will die out. Accurate and reliable models are crucial for conservationists.
