Diving with penguins: tech gives ocean scientists a bird’s-eye view of foraging in Antarctic waters

The machine learning model can work in the absence of video data, identifying prey capture events from new acceleration and depth data.

The world’s fourth mass coral bleaching is underway, but well-connected reefs may have a better chance to recover

Coral reefs share genetic material across wide areas, with help from ocean currents. This ability is especially important during episodes like the mass bleaching currently occurring.

AI plus gene editing promises to shift biotech into high gear

AI has learned the ins and outs of proteins. Gene editing gives scientists control of life’s molecular machinery. Together they could lead to a revolution in biotechnology.

Here’s how machine learning can violate your privacy

A data privacy expert explains how machine learning algorithms draw inferences and how that leads to privacy concerns.

Viruses are doing mysterious things everywhere – AI can help researchers understand what they’re up to in the oceans and in your gut

Scientists are discovering viral genetic sequences in the wild faster than they can analyze them. A kind of ChatGPT for proteins can help make sense of all that data.
The Vesuvius Challenge incentivizes technological development by inviting researchers to figure out how to ‘read’ ancient papyri excavated from volcanic ash of Mount Vesuvius in Italy. Columns of Greek text retrieved from a portion of a scroll. (Vesuvius Challenge)

Ancient scrolls are being ‘read’ by machine learning – with human knowledge to detect language and make sense of them

However exciting the technological developments may be, the task of reading and analyzing the Greek and Latin texts recovered from the papyri will fall to human beings.
