  • NSF statement: New development in quantum computing
    on October 24, 2019 at 3:34 pm

    In Quantum supremacy using a programmable superconducting processor, in the Oct. 24 issue of the journal Nature, a team of researchers led by Google present evidence that their quantum computer has accomplished a task that existing computers built from silicon chips cannot. When verified, the result will add credence to the broader promise of quantum computing. In addition to funding a broad portfolio of quantum ...

  • Some hyper-realistic masks more believable than human faces, study suggests
    on November 21, 2019 at 9:33 pm

    Researchers asked participants to look at pairs of photographs and decide which showed a normal face and which showed a person wearing a mask. Surprisingly, participants made the wrong call in one in five cases. […]

  • Brain biomarker predicts compulsive drinking
    on November 21, 2019 at 7:14 pm

    Although alcohol use is ubiquitous in modern society, only a portion of individuals develop alcohol use disorders or addiction. Yet, scientists have not understood why some individuals are prone to develop drinking problems, while others are not. Now, researchers have discovered a brain circuit that controls alcohol drinking behavior in mice, and can be used as a biomarker for predicting the development of compulsive drinking later on. […]

  • Online reviews reveal need for specialized drug treatment facility assessments

  • Simulations suggest embryo selection based on traits like height or IQ is still far off
    on November 21, 2019 at 5:17 pm

    The recent live births resulting from human embryonic CRISPR editing have heightened global concerns regarding 'designer babies.' Currently, the most practical approach to genetic 'enhancement' is preimplantation genetic screening of IVF embryos. The ability to select for traits that are brought about by multiple genes -- rather than genetic diseases caused by a single mutation -- is more far off and complicated than most people realize. […]
