Artificial neural networks now able to help reveal a brain's structure

The function of the brain is based on the connections between nerve cells. In order to map these connections and to create the connectome, the "wiring diagram" of a brain, neurobiologists capture images of the brain with the help of three-dimensional electron microscopy. Up until now, however, the mapping of larger areas has been hampered by the fact that, even with considerable support from computers, the analysis of these images by humans would take decades. This has now changed. Scientists from Google AI and the Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology describe a method based on artificial neural networks that is able to reconstruct entire nerve cells with all their elements and connections almost error-free from image stacks. This milestone in the field of automatic data analysis could bring us much closer to mapping and in the long term also understanding brains in their entirety. Compared to the brain, artificial neural networks use vastly simplified "nerve cells". Artificial intelligence based on these networks has nevertheless already found countless applications: from self-driving cars to quality control to the diagnosis of disease. However, until now the algorithms were too imprecise for very complex tasks such as the mapping of individual nerve cells with all their ramifications and contact points from a three-dimensional image of a brain.

3rd perspective ship flying is the thing I'm most excited for. The restricted field of view from the cockpit makes it really difficult to spot anything on the ground since usually your draw distance is such that things don't appear until they are just under your ship and out of view.

When the weather forecast says partly cloudy.. this is kinda not what I had in mind.. when the weather forecast said 35km/h winds.. the 85km/h winds which kinda sat me on my ass were also not quite what I had mind, weather forecast should be renamed the black art

Cryptic Doomsday Warning Found in Google Translations https://mysteriousuniverse.org/2018/07/cryptic-doomsday-warning-found-in-google-translations/

... While on one hand this is likely merely be an eccentric malfunction, a few reddit users pointed out that there are rumors that Google Translate is sometimes used to pass messages back and forth between intelligence operatives or who knows who else. Similar claims were made about the infamous A858 mystery on reddit a few years back. Of course, this is coming from r/conspiracy readers, so take it with a shaker of salt.

Other users point to the fact that Google Translate relies on AI networks which scan news stories and academic articles looking for appropriate translations. These repetitive strings of one-word nonsense likely trip up the translation algorithm and cause it to panic, figuratively speaking. Of course, Google Translate also allows users to submit their own translations and provide feedback on other users’ translations, opening up the possibility that these are merely pranks carried out by good ol’ fashioned internet pranksters. ...

"A collaborative research team in Japan has taken the first steps to understanding how the sun's rotational cycle influences lightning activity. They found answers in an unusual source--diaries dating back to the 1700s.

The research was published in the Annales Geophysicae, the open access peer-reviewed solar-terrestrial and planetary sciences journal of the European Geosciences Union on April 18th, 2018.

The team includes faculty members from several universities in Japan, as well as Ryuho Kataoka, an associate professor of the National Institute of Polar Research (NIPR). NIPR supports scientific research and observation of the polar regions and is associated with the Research Organization of Information and Systems (ROIS) in Japan.

"It is well known that long-term--centennial to millennial-scale--variations of solar activity influences terrestrial climate," said Hiroko Miyahara, first author on the paper, and an associate professor of Humanities and Sciences/Museum Careers at Musashino Art University in Tokyo, Japan. "However, it is not well established whether the sun influences the daily or monthly weather."

Miyahara points to the 27-day solar rotational period, which is the average time it takes for the sun to rotate on its axis. Since the sun consists of plasma, the equator rotates quicker than its poles. When areas of high activity, such as sunspots, face Earth, there's an increase in ultraviolet rays and decrease in energetic particles showering the atmosphere.

Miyahara and her team set out to clarify if the 27-day cycle was reflected in meteorological phenomena, such as lightning activity on Earth. They turned to a set of diaries kept continuously for more than 150 years. A farm family in Hachioji (currently located in western part of Tokyo) kept the first diary called the, "Diary of Ishikawa Family," while the other is the, "Diary of Hirosaki Clan Government Office," a detailed log kept by a collective of civil servants from Hirosaki (currently located in the Aomori Prefecture) who were in residence in central Tokyo. The two locations are about 25 miles apart".
