Has artificial intelligence become alchemy?

Science, Vol. 360, No. 6388. (04 May 2018), pp. 478-478,


Ali Rahimi, a researcher in artificial intelligence (AI) at Google in San Francisco, California, has charged that machine learning algorithms, in which computers learn through trial and error, have become a form of "alchemy." Researchers, he says, do not know why some algorithms work and others don't, nor do they have rigorous criteria for choosing one AI architecture over another. Now, in a paper presented on 30 April at the International Conference on Learning Representations in Vancouver, Canada, Rahimi and his ...


New water-cooling solar panels could lower the cost of air conditioning by 20%



[Excerpt] Most of us have heard of solar water heaters. Now there’s a solar water cooler, and the technology may sharply lower the cost of industrial-scale air conditioning and refrigeration. [...] Researchers at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, recently placed three water cooling panels—each 0.37 square meters—atop a building on campus and circulated water through them at a rate of 0.2 liters every minute. They report today in Nature Energy that their setup cooled the water as much as 5°C ...


Sub-ambient non-evaporative fluid cooling with the sky

Nature Energy, Vol. 2, No. 9. (4 September 2017), 17143,


Cooling systems consume 15% of electricity generated globally and account for 10% of global greenhouse gas emissions. With demand for cooling expected to grow tenfold by 2050, improving the efficiency of cooling systems is a critical part of the twenty-first-century energy challenge. Building upon recent demonstrations of daytime radiative sky cooling, here we demonstrate fluid cooling panels that harness radiative sky cooling to cool fluids below the air temperature with zero evaporative losses, and use almost no electricity. Over three days ...


Cheap plastic film cools whatever it touches up to 10°C

Science (March 2017), 2354204,


[Excerpt] [...] During the day most materials [...] absorb visible and near-infrared (IR) light from the sun. That added energy excites molecules, which warm up and, over time, emit the energy back out as photons with longer wavelengths, typically in the midrange of the infrared spectrum. That helps the materials cool back down, particularly at night when they are no longer absorbing visible light but are still radiating IR photons. [\n] In recent years, researchers have tried to goose this “passive cooling” ...


Scalable-manufactured randomized glass-polymer hybrid metamaterial for daytime radiative cooling

Science, Vol. 355, No. 6329. (10 March 2017), pp. 1062-1066,


[The lazy way to keep cool in the sun] Passive radiative cooling requires a material that radiates heat away while allowing solar radiation to pass through. Zhai et al. solve this riddle by constructing a metamaterial composed of a polymer layer embedded with microspheres, backed with a thin layer of silver (see the Perspective by Zhang). The result is an easy-to-manufacture material near the theoretical limit for daytime radiative cooling. The translucent and flexible film can be made in large quantities for ...





[Introduction] pktools is a collection of programs written in C++ for image processing with a focus on remote sensing applications. It relies on the Geospatial Data Abstraction Library (GDAL, and OGR. [\n] All utilities in pktools use command line options and have a built in help [::] use the -h option to get help [::] pktools ALWAYS use -i for input and -o for output (unlike GDAL utilities that commonly use last argument as output and second but last argument as input) ...


Transgenic crops: Mexican GM maize rift is not so simple

Nature, Vol. 512, No. 7513. (13 August 2014), pp. 136-136,


Excerpt] You rightly point out that the issue of genetically modified (GM) maize (corn) is more sensitive and complex in Mexico than in other countries (Nature511, 1617; 201410.1038/511016a), but you owe readers a more in-depth and balanced view. The rift in Mexico's scientific community over GM maize is [...] a result of the commercial push to plant GM maize before the benefits and risks, and the costs to Mexican society, have been fully assessed. The possibility of producing maize that is tolerant to ...

In Free Software Directory (October 2011), 8008


Mastrave is a free software library written to perform vectorized scientific computing and to be as compatible as possible with both GNU Octave and Matlab computing frameworks, offering general purpose, portable and freely available features for the scientific community. Mastrave is mostly oriented to ease complex modeling tasks such as those typically needed within environmental models, even when involving irregular and heterogeneous data series. [Semantic array programming]. The Mastrave project attempts to allow a more effective, quick interoperability between GNU Octave and Matlab ...

Meta-information Database (INRMM-MiD).
This database integrates a dedicated meta-information database in CiteULike (the CiteULike INRMM Group) with the meta-information available in Google Scholar, CrossRef and DataCite. The Altmetric database with Article-Level Metrics is also harvested. Part of the provided semantic content (machine-readable) is made even human-readable thanks to the DCMI Dublin Core viewer. Digital preservation of the meta-information indexed within the INRMM-MiD publication records is implemented thanks to the Internet Archive.
The library of INRMM related pubblications may be quickly accessed with the following links.
