  • Chemistry PhD candidate Richard Li, computational nano/bio physicist Rosa Di Felice, quantum computing expert and Viterbi Professor of Engineering Daniel Lidar along with computational biologist Remo Rohs sought to apply machine learning to derive models from biological data to predict whether certain sequences of DNA represented strong or weak binding sites for binding of a particular set of transcription factors.

  • problem

  • An inverse problem in science is the process of calculating from a set of observations the causal factors that produced them: for example, calculating an image in X-ray computed tomography, source reconstruction in acoustics, or calculating the density of the Earth from measurements of its gravity field. (wikipedia.org)
  • Physical
  • He has played a leading role in the development of the lattice formulation of QCD into a quantitative non-perturbative technique and in the use of this formulation to compute, from first principles, a number of physical quantities, including deep inelastic structure functions, electromagnetic form factors of hadrons and semi-leptonic decays of charmed mesons. (wikipedia.org)
  • data
  • To help speed up their search for the Higgs, ATLAS and CMS physicists used simulated data to train machine-learning algorithms to tell wheat from chaff - photons from impostors. (nature.com)
  • More recently, particle physicist Maria Spiropulu, who helped lead the Higgs search at CMS, wanted to know whether a quantum computer could help to make the training process more efficient, in particular by reducing the amount of simulated data required to train the system. (nature.com)
  • And there is a long way to go to demonstrate that these techniques are more efficient than some existing machine-learning algorithms that are able to train on relatively small data sets, Cranmer says. (nature.com)
  • The algorithm they developed specifically for the D-Wave Two X quantum annealing machine led to predictions that were in agreement with real-world experimental data. (bctechnology.com)
  • time
  • He had details wrong but the basic concept right: a suite of equations that, when applied to measurements of heat, cloudiness, humidity and the like, could project how those factors would change over time. (nytimes.com)
  • We examined the plausibility of this and looked at why sating all our desires leads to a glorious utopia in Star Trek , but a ruined dystopia in The Time Machine . (blogspot.com)
  • The Time Machine does not. (blogspot.com)
  • Hopefully, those observations will be corroborated over a long period of time as to what`s really a risk factor or not. (chicagotribune.com)
  • A second set of results was published in 1968, this time claiming performance far in advance of any other machine. (wikipedia.org)
  • By the late 1970s, newer machines had reached all of the conditions needed for practical fusion, although not at the same time and in a single reactor. (wikipedia.org)
  • Science
  • Physicists also contributed to the war effort, developing wireless communication technologies and sound-based methods of detecting U-boats, resulting in the first tenuous long-term connections between academic science and the military. (wikipedia.org)
  • study
  • Their proof-of-principle study - performed using a machine built by quantum-computing company D-Wave working on the now-familiar case of the Higgs boson - does not yet provide a clear advantage over conventional techniques. (nature.com)
  • A major Canadian-led global study has found that the vast majority of heart attacks may be predicted by nine easily measurable factors and that these factors are the same in virtually every region and ethnic group worldwide. (innovations-report.com)
  • The INTERHEART study, one of the largest case control studies examining the importance of heart disease risk factors, involved 15,152 individuals with their first heart attack and 14,820 others who did not have heart disease but who were of the same age, gender, and from the same city. (innovations-report.com)
  • This major study is the first examination of whether risk factors for heart attack have a similar or different impact in all major ethnic groups and major areas of the world. (innovations-report.com)
  • That issue will also include a second article from the study on the factor of stress as a risk attribute for heart attacks. (innovations-report.com)
  • The system was first formally discussed in the December 1976 National Reference Designs Study, which examined the technical and economic feasibility of a machine with the design capacity of 20 TeV per proton. (wikipedia.org)
  • risk
  • Reducing death rates from this disease remains high on the Government's agenda, yet attention to the classical risk factors may not provide all the answers. (innovations-report.com)
  • CVD is a multi-factorial disease, which arises out of interactive effects of different combinations of risk factors. (innovations-report.com)
  • But in recent years a number of other 'novel' risk markers have emerged, and understanding of the physiology of and risk factors for heart disease has progressed. (innovations-report.com)
  • The Task Force's analysis of the interaction of diet with emerging risk factors suggests that other risk factors (in addition to the classical ones) are also influenced by diet, in particular the type of dietary fat, and that greater emphasis on dietary fat quality (the overall fatty acid profile of the diet) is now justified, in the context of a varied diet, rich in fruit, vegetables and whole grain cereals. (innovations-report.com)
  • The report also emphasises the importance of a physically active lifestyle, which is linked to improving some risk factors for CVD, and avoidance of obesity. (innovations-report.com)
  • Other risk factors that have been reviewed by the Task Force include subtle alterations in types of fat other than cholesterol in the blood stream, factors associated with inflammation and with blood clotting, lowered resistance to oxidative stress, abnormal insulin responses, raised blood homocysteine and impaired functioning of blood vessels. (innovations-report.com)
  • Additional risk factors are high blood pressure, diabetes, abdominal obesity, stress, a lack of daily consumption of fruits and vegetables and a lack of daily exercise. (innovations-report.com)
  • Since these risk factors may all be modified, this is remarkable and will change the way we look at heart attack prevention. (innovations-report.com)
  • Different countries will be able to pinpoint risk factors for their people and address the root causes of heart disease. (innovations-report.com)

  • But the extent of the underground caverns is vast (likely global), and the machines equally so. (blogspot.com)
  • The Eloi have become so dependent on the products of the Morlocks that they have almost completely lost their own intelligence, while the Morlocks are still maintaining a global network of machines. (blogspot.com)
