Medicine & TechnologyEarly observations with this Webb Telescope will exhibit its capability of distinguishing the stars' individual light in the local universe making the most of the powerful capabilities of such a device.
The researchers created an AI tool for detecting discrimination concerning a protected attribute such as gender or race by human decision makers or AI systems that are based on the concept of causality in which one thing, a cause, causes another thing, an effect
The biomolecules human immune systems deploy to find, tag, and destroy invading pathogens are the antibodies. Their work includes binding to specific targets, called epitopes, on the surfaces of antigens, like locks to keys. Scientists have, for so many years, exploited this selective tagging mechanism in natural antibodies to engineer antibody-based probes that let them purify and study different types of proteins within cells.
The scientists designed the proof-of-concept tool with the use of real agonal breathing instances captured from 911 calls, detected agonal breathing events 97 percent of the time from up to 20 feet (or 6 meters) away
The ancient stone tool industry of our early ancestors was just pushed deeper back in time, based on recent findings near the western shore of Lake Turkana in Kenya. Tools dating to over 3 million years ago - some 700,000 years earlier than previous finds - indicate the technology arose even before the genus Homo roamed the planet.
Anthropologists now believe that some of the earliest human ancestors who lived 3.2 million years ago had hand structures much like our own and were able to grasp and use tools, even if they had not invented them yet.
What were the first words uttered by the early ancestors of modern humans? According to a new study, one of the first possible sentences could have been, "Tool bad," and likely occurred between 2.5 and 1.8 million years ago.
It’s been a mission ten years in the making, and after a final green light from mission control tonight, the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Rosetta Mission will deploy its handy little lander named “Philae” onto the surface of the far off Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko it met up with earlier this summer.
In a sky-high archaeological dig, based near the peaks of the Peruvian Andes mountains, an international team of researchers unearthed the oldest-known evidence of human settlement high above sea level. In fact, the rock shelters and tool fragments found, date back roughly 12,000 years and lie 14,700 feet above coastal sea level at the base of the mountain range.
