The National Comprehensive Cancer Network put out new guidance for COVID-19 vaccinations in people with cancer, based on available evidence plus consensus from top hematology and oncology experts with particular expertise in infectious diseases, vaccine development and delivery, and medical ethics.
Valuable support or job killer? Artificial intelligence (AI) promises to enhance efficiency of business processes, but also changes the environment of workers. Profitable use of AI technologies for digitization in the energy sector and ways for human beings to remain in the center are studied by the new MeKIDI project coordinated by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). The project is aimed at finding a good balance between technical opportunities, company goals, and individual interests.
Using mathematical image processing, scientists at the BioTechMed-Graz research cooperation have found a way to create digital twins from human hearts. The method opens up completely new possibilities in clinical diagnostics.
A new study examined whether federal policy aimed at mitigating local air pollution--specifically, the Clean Air Act--affected the municipal bond market from 2005 to 2019. The study concludes that increases in regulatory stringency or uncertainty over future environmental policy increased the cost of municipal debt used to fund infrastructure and other projects. The findings have implications for policy, including the risk that environmental regulations could jeopardize local governments' ability to raise capital for critical infrastructure.
A NASA mission slated for launch on Friday will place three tiny satellites into low-Earth orbit, where they will demonstrate how satellites might track and communicate with each other, setting the stage for swarms of thousands of small satellites that can work cooperatively and autonomously.
The École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) is among the first Canadian universities to sign the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), which promotes parameters other than the journal impact factor to assess the results of scholarly research.
A new Open Access journal from Cambridge University Press will provide a home for interdisciplinary research in the fast-growing field of quantitative and computational imaging in the life sciences.
CABI is pleased to announce the launch of a new Author Services and Education portal created to support researchers in successfully publishing impactful studies across all agriculture and biosciences. The new portal has been developed in partnership with Editage and Impact Science, part of Cactus Communications (CACTUS), a technology company accelerating scientific advancement.
In a context of increasing world demand for fish and seafood, sustainable and innovative solutions need to be found that improve the dietary safety and value of fish and seafood. Researchers have optimised the tool FishChoice. The new version of the tool guides consumers so that they can get the maximum benefit from eating fish and seafood - in terms of nutrient intake - while it reduces exposure to chemical pollutants and aims for consumption to be sustainable.
A new sensor network powered by an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm developed by scientists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) can now accurately detect, in real-time, gas leaks and unwanted water seepage into gas pipeline networks.
