My name is Artem, I’m a computational neuroscience student and researcher. In this video we will see why individual neurons essentially function like deep convolutional neural networks, equipped with insane information processing capabilities as well as some of the physiological mechanisms, that account for such computational complexity.

Scientists Find the Holy Grail: the Reason Why Lithium-Metal Batteries Fail

Posted by in category: energy

We always knew they’d power the EV revolution… if we ever learned why they short circuit. Mission accomplished.

Hurricane Sandy was an extreme weather event. But a Stanford-Colorado State AI forecasts accelerated warming with a high probability of future Sandys.


An AI neural network studies historical maps and data to accurately predict a rise of 1.1 C by 2022, 1.5 by the mid-2030s, and 2.0 by 2050.

Restaurants can’t find workers because they’ve found better jobs

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, employment, robotics/AI

Robots are coming. And since the workers are already leaving the industry, no one will be harmed and service will be cheaper. Loving it!


Nearly three years since the coronavirus pandemic upended the labor market, restaurants, bars, hotels and casinos remain perpetually short-staffed. But these workers didn’t disappear, they found better jobs.

Scientists Use Exotic DNA To Help Create “Climate-Proof” Crops

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, food, genetics

The incorporation of exotic DNA

DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid, is a molecule composed of two long strands of nucleotides that coil around each other to form a double helix. It is the hereditary material in humans and almost all other organisms that carries genetic instructions for development, functioning, growth, and reproduction. Nearly every cell in a person’s body has the same DNA. Most DNA is located in the cell nucleus (where it is called nuclear DNA), but a small amount of DNA can also be found in the mitochondria (where it is called mitochondrial DNA or mtDNA).

Mapping and modeling human brain networks

Abstract: Recent years have seen a rapid expansion of empirical and theoretical studies in connectomics – the emerging science of structural and functional brain networks. In this talk I will survey some of the recent advances and a few of the challenges for connectomics research, with an emphasis on human brain connectivity. Of particular interest are studies that employ network science methods for analyzing and modeling connectivity patterns. These studies have shown the existence of highly connected hub regions that play crucial roles in brain communication and the integration of information. Future applications of brain modeling and computation for understanding brain function and dysfunction will also be discussed. Overall, the new field of connectomics offers a unique opportunity for building a theoretical understanding of the function of the human brain.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai says users will be able to interact directly with AI features in its search engine ‘very soon’

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

He really wants to squash the competition.


AI “is the most profound technology” the company is working on, Pichai said. He first mentioned Google’s plans to become “AI-first” several years ago.
