Artificial Intelligence Analyzes Gravitational Lenses 10 Million Times Faster

Ερευνητές από το Εθνικό Εργαστήριο Επιταχυντών SLAC και το Πανεπιστήμιο Stanford στις Η.Π.Α., επέδειξαν την δυνατότητα τεχνητών νευρωνικών δικτύων, τα οποία μιμούνται τα εγκεφαλικά, να φέρουν την επανάσταση στην μέθοδο ανάλυσης ιδιαίτερα πολύπλοκων δεδομένων, συμπεριλαμβανομένων των ακραίων χωροχρονικών παραμορφώσεων —καίριας σημασίας για την κατανόηση του σύμπαντος.

The world’s newest atom-smasher achieves its ‘first turns’

One of the world’s top particle accelerators has reached a milestone, achieving its «first turns» — circulating beams of particles for the first time — and opening a new window into the universe, a view that will give physicists access to a record rate of particle collisions in a tiny volume in space.__PNNL

The quantum source of space-time

Many physicists believe that entanglement is the essence of quantum weirdness — and some now suspect that it may also be the essence of space-time geometry._Ron Cowen/Nature

World’s Most Powerful Digital Camera Sees Construction Green Light

The Department of Energy has approved the start of construction for a 3.2-gigapixel digital camera – the world’s largest – at the heart of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST). Assembled at the DOE’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, the camera will be the eye of LSST, revealing unprecedented details of the universe and helping unravel some of its greatest mysteries._SLAC
