When the eyes are open, visual information flows from the retina through the optic nerve and into the brain, which assembles this raw information into objects and scenes.
Machine learning, which is the basis for most commercial artificial-intelligence systems, is intrinsically probabilistic.
Current methods to check for increased pressure in a patient’s brain are invasive. One widely used technique is to drill a hole in the skull to insert a catheter or sensor into the brain tissue.
New system for human genome editing has potential to increase power and precision of DNA engineering
A team including the scientist who first harnessed the CRISPR-Cas9 system for mammalian genome editing has now identified a different CRISPR system with the potential for even simpler and more prec
