Graphics in reverse: Probabilistic programming does in 50 lines of code what used to take thousands

Graphics in reverse: Probabilistic programming does in 50 lines of code what used to take thousands
Written by Drew Bradley on 2015-04-15


To make machine-learning applications easier to build, computer scientists have begun developing so-called probabilistic programming languages, which let researchers mix and match machine-learning techniques that have worked well in other contexts. In 2013, the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, an incubator of cutting-edge technology, launched a four-year program to fund probabilistic-programming...(Read More)

Citizen scientists map global forests

Citizen scientists map global forests
Written by Drew Bradley on 2015-03-30


While there are many existing sources of data about forests, including satellite imagery, there is broad disagreement between the data products. Knowing the location and extent of forests is vital information for ecology, climate change, and economic modelling, as well as for researchers looking for the best reference information to estimate deforestation and forest degradation."The new maps rely...(Read More)

New technique improves forecasts for Canada

New technique improves forecasts for Canada's prized salmon fishery
Written by Drew Bradley on 2015-03-14


In a paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Scripps graduate student Hao Ye, Scripps Professor George Sugihara, and fisheries coauthors in Canada describe how the technique, called empirical dynamic modeling, or EDM, improved forecasting for Fraser River sockeye salmon, a highly prized fishery in British Columbia.Developed at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at...(Read More)

Modular anatomical structure of human head described for first time
Written by Drew Bradley on 2015-02-26


Scientists at the University of Valencia have developed a research methodology called Anatomical Network Analysis (AnNA), based on network analysis mathematical tools for studying anatomy. More precisely, this method has been developed over the last six years, as a result of the findings of the doctoral thesis by Borja Altava Esteve, under the supervision of Rasskin. Thanks to the high degree of...(Read More)

Wrinkle predictions: New mathematical theory may explain patterns in fingerprints, raisins, and microlenses

Wrinkle predictions: New mathematical theory may explain patterns in fingerprints, raisins, and microlenses
Written by Drew Bradley on 2015-02-10


Now a team of MIT mathematicians and engineers has developed a mathematical theory, confirmed through experiments, that predicts how wrinkles on curved surfaces take shape. From their calculations, they determined that one main parameter -- curvature -- rules the type of pattern that forms: The more curved a surface is, the more its surface patterns resemble a crystal-like lattice.The researchers...(Read More)

Which 'letters' in the human genome are functionally important?
Written by Drew Bradley on 2015-01-25


In work published in Nature Genetics, researchers at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) have developed a new computational method to identify which letters in the human genome are functionally important. Their computer program, called fitCons, harnesses the power of evolution, comparing changes in DNA letters across not just related species, but also between multiple individuals in a single species....(Read More)
