The placenta is one of the least studied organs, but it is the cause of problems in one in ten pregnancies. A virtual placenta is helping researchers to pick up at-risk pregnancies sooner.
Researchers are using mixed reality technologies to investigate how people behave in in emergency situations. The findings are helping shape disaster responses.
The model provides county-level analysis and simulates the benefits of mask-wearing in terms of illnesses and deaths.
The questions researchers around the world are working on day and night.
Imagining how to increase water managers’ empathy for others in a holistic way is critical for our human and planetary future.
A body at least twice as massive as the Earth smashing into Uranus could have made it lopsided, shows research.
Our study used innovative 3D scanning and engineering-inspired computer simulations to understand the evolution of the penis bone in some mammals.
Can artificial intelligence accurately simulate people’s religious tendencies in the face of disaster and tragedy?
Thousands of animals are used for heart drug tests each year – but research shows that in silico developments are more accurate.
A basketball computer program simulates millions of trajectories in search of the ideal shot.
There’s little research into origins of the geographic patterns of language diversity. A new model exploring processes that shaped Australia’s language diversity provides a template for investigators.
An aggressive posture is one thing – but doing something about it is another, as countries factor in the costs and risks of aggression.
Researchers need to be able to draw conclusions based on previously published studies in their field. A new aggregation method synthesizes prior findings and may help reveal more of the big picture.
Surely no super intelligence would be that cruel.
Researchers ran computer simulations that take into account environmental variability and geographical setting to investigate how early explorers made it to these tiny, remote islands in the Pacific.
We drew inspiration from nature’s response to complexity to help program the winning team in this year’s RoboCup Simulation League.
Sounds scary … so should we be worried?
Millions of people die or suffer from infectious diseases each year. Computer modelling can now help simulate the impact of any spreading disease.
Scientists of all kinds turn to computer models to investigate questions they can’t get at any other way. Here’s how models work and why we can trust them.
