Experiment Shows Bees Can Understand a Symbolic Language For Mathematics
Do you need another reason to love bees? Not only can our fuzzy little flower friends perform basic arithmetic, scientists have now discovered that they can recognise symbols associated with numbers.
ML in KSQL
KSQL, a Java UDF, and PMML simplify building and training a SciKit model.
Training a single AI model can emit as much carbon as five cars in their lifetimes
Deep learning has a terrible carbon footprint.
Scientists ‘Clear’ Alzheimer’s Plaque From Mice Using Only Light And Sound
Clumps of harmful proteins that interfere with brain functions have been partially cleared in mice using nothing but light and sound.
