AI programming is an elevation of technology that has brought efficiency and optimum benefits to different company’s operations and peoples lives. Source: Statista Just like in the development of most software applications, a developer has a variety of languages to use in writing AI. At Existek, we love AI programming, check out our AI and neural network based handwriting character recognition application case study. It is also likable from its features such as Interactive, interpreted, modular, dynamic, portable and high level which make it more unique than Java. Has an automatic memory manager which eases the work of the developer. Java is also a generally immature programming AI language as there are still some developments ongoing such as JDK 1.1 in beta.
Using more than 1,000 different chemicals, unconventional oil and gas (UOG) operations combine directional drilling and hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking," to release natural gas from underground rock.Today, researchers at the University of Missouri and the University of Massachusetts released a study that found that female mice exposed to mixtures of chemicals used in UOG operations during prenatal development had abnormal mammary glands in adulthood.Additionally, some of the mice developed pre-cancerous mammary lesions that may suggest they will be more sensitive to chemicals that cause cancer."Our earlier research showed that both male and female mice had alterations to hormone levels and reproductive organs resulting from exposures to these UOG contaminants," said Susan C. Nagel, an associate professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Women's Health in the School of Medicine."We felt this could indicate that exposures to UOG chemical mixtures can produce a range of defects in animals exposed during vulnerable periods, such as development in the womb.So, we examined 23 UOG contaminants and compounds commonly used or produced in the fracking process."
COLLEGE PARK -- Engineers at the University of Maryland, College Park (UMD) have found a way to make wood more than 10 times times stronger and tougher than before, creating a natural substance that is stronger than many titanium alloys."This new way to treat wood makes it 12 times stronger than natural wood and 10 times tougher," said Liangbing Hu of UMD's A. James Clark School of Engineering and the leader of the team that did the research, to be published on February 8, 2018 in the journal Nature.It's also comparable to carbon fiber, but much less expensive.""Soft woods like pine or balsa, which grow fast and are more environmentally friendly, could replace slower-growing but denser woods like teak in furniture or buildings," Hu said."The paper provides a highly promising route to the design of lightweight, high performance structural materials, with tremendous potential for a broad range of applications where high strength, large toughness and superior ballistic resistance are desired, " said Huajian Gao, a professor at Brown University who was not involved in the study."It is particularly exciting to note that the method is versatile for various species of wood and fairly easy to implement."
The space agency plans to launch a real submarine into Titan seas in the next 20 years.They have published a paper on their work in the journal, Fluid Phase Equilibria.Titan is of particular interest to researchers because it is similar to earth in one important way, it holds liquid.But, instead of water, the hydrological cycle is based on methane.Because of the possible lessons it could provide here on Earth, NASA has been studying Saturn and its moons for more than a decade with data collected from the Cassini spacecraft.It will need to study atmospheric and ocean conditions, move around sea beds, and hover at or below the surface.
Three years ago, biotechnologists demonstrated in field trials that they could increase the productivity of maize by introducing a rice gene into the plant that regulated the accumulation of sucrose in kernels and led to more kernels per maize plant.But they were keen to discover more intimate details of the relationships governing the increased productivity."Now we know far more about how this yield effect has been achieved," says Matthew Paul, who led the anglo-american team from Rothamsted Research and Syngenta, a biotechnology company that also funded the work.The transgenic maize depressed levels of T6P in the phloem, a major component of the plant's transportation network, allowing more sucrose to move to developing kernels and, serendipitously, increasing rates of photosynthesis, thereby producing even more sucrose for more kernels."These structures are particularly sensitive to drought - female kernels will abort," says Paul, a plant biochemist at Rothamsted.He adds: "This is a first-in-its-kind study that shows the technology operating effectively both in the field and in the laboratory.
The heart rate sensors in your Apple Watch, Android Wear, Garmin or Fitbit can detect early signs of diabetes with 85 percent accuracy, according to a study from app developer Cardiogram and the University of California, San Francisco.In a study involving 14,000 Apple Watch and Android Wear users, health sensor data was used to train a deep neural network called DeepHeart to identify participants with and without diabetes.DeepHeart has previously shown high accuracy in detecting atrial fibrillation, hypertension and sleep apnea.The 2015 Framingham Heart Study found that low heart rate variability and high resting heart rate are predictors of who will develop diabetes over 12 years.That helped inform the Cardiogram study's use of 200 million heart rate and step count measurements.More than 100 million adults in the US have diabetes or prediabetes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
These crafty bombardier beetles are able to escape after being swallowed by toads, which they do by ejecting hot, noxious chemicals that forces the predator to barf.Small prey animals have evolved all sorts of physical defences, including thorns, hairs, and highly unpleasant toxic substances.Back in May 2016, Kobe University researcher Takuya Sato and his colleagues were studying the defensive behaviours and chemical attacks utilised by a species of bombardier beetle known as Pheropsophus jessoensis, an insect common to Korea and Japan.The vomited beetle was still alive and active.”The scientists had never seen a toad or frog do this before, prompting further investigation.The follow-up study was an effort to clarify the ecological factors involved, and determine how the beetles are able to survive for so long in the belly of their predators.
Male Uber drivers are earning more money behind the wheel than women because they drive faster, a new report reveals.According to a Stanford study released on Tuesday (6 February), men are earning about 7% more for jobs because of three factors: speed, experience and willingness to drive far away.The study also found that men work longer hours and complete more trips per week.Driving speed was the most influential factor in the pay gap, the study showed."Increasing speed increases expected driver earnings in almost all Uber settings.Drivers are paid according to the distance and time they travel on trip and, in the vast majority of cases, the loss of per-minute pay when driving quickly is outweighed by the value of completing a trip quickly to start the next trip sooner and accumulate more per-mile days."
According to Cardiogram founder Brandon Ballinger’s latest clinical study, the Apple Watch can detect diabetes in those previously diagnosed with the disease with an 85 percent accuracy.The study is part of the larger DeepHeart study with Cardiogram and UCSF.This particular study used data from 14,000 Apple Watch users and was able to detect that 462 of them had diabetes by using the Watch’s heart rate sensor, the same type of sensor other fitness bands using Android Wear also integrate into their systems.This led to the impetus to use the Watch’s heart rate sensor to see if it could accurately detect a diabetic patient.Previously, Ballinger and his colleagues were able to use Apple’s Watch to detect an abnormal heart rhythm with up to a 97 percent accuracy, sleep apnea with a 90 percent accuracy and hypertension with an 82 percent accuracy when paired with Cardiograms AI-based algorithm.All discoveries so far have been published in clinical journals and Ballinger intends to publish these latest findings shortly after presenting at the AAAI 2018 conference this week.
Before modern chemistry brought doctors blood and urine tests for diagnosing diabetes, they had to rely on their taste buds.Too much sugar in your bodily fluids means your metabolism has gone haywire—either your cells aren’t making insulin or they’re not responding to it.Which you can measure, either with electricity or light.On Wednesday, at the annual AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence in New Orleans, digital health-tracking startup Cardiogram presented research suggesting the Apple Watch’s heart rate sensor and step counter can make a good guess at whether or not a person has diabetes—when paired with the right machine-learning algorithms, of course.Cardiogram offers a free app for organizing heart-rate data from the Apple Watch and devices with similar sensors—from companies like Fitbit, Garmin, and Android Wear.As of mid-January, the study had registered 196,000 participants, who each fill out a survey about known medical conditions, family histories, medications, and blood test results.
It’s only been a few months since the Apple Watch began testing the waters as a tried-and-true medical device.But already, the wearable is proving its mettle.As per the latest study from Cardiogram founder Brandon Ballinger, the Apple Watch is capable of detecting diabetes with an 85 percent accuracy rate.There is a caveat to that figure, however — it only stands for patients who have previously been diagnosed with diabetes already.The research examined data from 14,000 Apple Watch owners, and determined that 462 had diabetes by using the heart-rate sensor in the watch.According to the 2015 Framingham Heart Study, diabetes patients have heart rates that vary from healthy individuals.
Think of a stereotypical Brit and you may imagine a pale cast member from Downton Abbey.A new study, however, shows early modern Brits from 10,000 years ago, who migrated from Europe over a land bridge into England, may not have been quite as pale as many of their Colin Firth-like contemporaries.The Guardian reports on DNA research out of University College London and the Natural History Museum that reveals "Cheddar Man," a Mesolithic skeleton found in Gough's Cave in 1903, had blue eyes, dark curly hair, and "dark to black" skin.The finding suggests that lighter-skinned Europeans evolved later than previously thought."To come face-to-face with what this guy could have looked like ... [is] something a few years ago we couldn't have imagined," one researcher tells the BBC.Scientists extracted his DNA by drilling a hole in his skull to draw out bone powder.
There are few better things on a blustery cold day than a spot of hot tea.But a new study published Monday in the Annals of Internal Medicine suggests that some people’s tea habits—in particular, those who drink and smoke regularly—might be raising their chances of developing oesophageal cancer.The findings also highlight how complicated it can be to figure out what exactly causes cancer.The study collected physical measurements and health-related questionnaires from more than half a million adults living throughout the country from 2004 to 2008.People who drank both burning hot tea and more than 15 g of alcohol (about a standard serving) daily were five times as likely to develop oesophageal cancer than those who drank tea and alcohol less than once a week.And the risk was higher still for people who engaged in all three habits.

They drive slower, less often, and take cheap trips, joint study with Stanford concludesYou can't blame this one entirely on Uber bros, though.A study by Stanford University eggheads and Uber staffers in the US found the difference in earnings is actually down to driver experience and usage patterns."Men’s willingness to supply more hours per week (enabling them to learn more) and to target the most profitable locations shows that women continue to pay a cost for working reduced hours each week, even with no convexity in the hours-earning schedule," the research team stated.The study, which was based on data collected from 1,877,252 drivers operating in America from January 2015 to March 2017, examined factors including average hours worked per week, money earned over the whole week, and money earned per hour.Yes, Uber has these stats on its app's drivers.
The gig economy was supposed to be the great equalizer.Shuttling people around town, shopping for groceries, or putting up with a temporary tenant are about as gender neutral as a job can get.So why are men earning seven percent more when driving for Uber?And if you’re assuming it’s sexism — a fair guess considering Uber’s reportedly toxic culture and past issues with female employees — you’d be wrong.The study, co-authored by Uber, Stanford, and the University of Chicago, relied on two years of Uber data from 1.9 million drivers, of whom 513,000 (27 percent) were women.All told, men earn more on the platform for one (or a combination) of, three reasons: men have more experience on the platform, they drive during more lucrative times (and pick more lucrative/busier locations), and they tend to drive faster and more aggressively than women.
