• Evolvable neural units that can mimic the brain's synaptic plasticity

    6 days ago - By Phys.org

    Machine learning techniques are designed to mathematically emulate the functions and structure of neurons and neural networks in the brain. However, biological neurons are very complex, which makes artificially replicating them particularly challenging.

  • Doubling the number of known gravitational lenses

    6 days ago - By Phys.org

    Data from the DESI Legacy Imaging Surveys have revealed over 1200 new gravitational lenses, approximately doubling the number of known lenses. Discovered using machine learning trained on real data, these warped and stretched images of distant galaxies provide astronomers with a flood of new targets with which to measure fundamental properties of the Universe such as the Hubble constant, which describes the expanding Universe.

  • Deep learning outperforms standard machine learning in biomedical research applications, research shows

    6 days ago - By Phys.org

    Compared to standard machine learning models, deep learning models are largely superior at discerning patterns and discriminative features in brain imaging, despite being more complex in their architecture, according to a new study in Nature Communications led by Georgia State University.
