Neuroscience Inspires Cartoon Action in Pixar's Inside Out

June 15, 2015 4:30 pm | by Sandy Cohen, AP Entertainment Writer | News | Comments

Drawing on real neuroscience and the latest psychological research, Inside Out goes where no animated film has gone before: Deep inside the workings of a young girl's mind. It centers on 11-year-old Riley, a happy, hockey-loving kid. Most of the action, though, takes place inside her head, where her staff of personified emotions — Joy, Anger, Sadness, Fear and Disgust — is in charge of operations.

President Barack Obama said May 20, 2015, the threat posed by climate change is evident all around and that those who deny the "indisputable" science that it is real are putting at risk the security of the United States and the military sworn to defend it. Obama said refusing to act to slow the effects of global warming, including rising seas, amounts to a "dereliction of duty" and undermines the readiness of U.S. forces.

Advances in technology have generated vast amounts of “omics” data: genomic, epigenomic, transcriptomic, proteomic and metabolomic changes for all types of specimens. Bridging the gap between data generation and investigators’ ability to retrieve and interpret data is essential to realize the biological and clinical value of this wealth of information.

The German Climate Computing Center is managing the world's largest climate simulation data archive, used by climate researchers worldwide. The archive consists of more than 40 petabytes of data and is projected to grow by roughly 75 petabytes annually over the next five years. As climate simulations are carried out on increasingly powerful supercomputers, massive amounts of data are produced that must be effectively stored and analyzed.

Designing the Building Blocks of Future Nano-computing Technologies

March 4, 2015 12:38 pm | by NSF | News | Comments

A relentless global effort to shrink transistors has made computers continually faster, cheaper and smaller over the last 40 years. This effort has enabled chipmakers to double the number of transistors on a chip roughly every 18 months — a trend referred to as Moore's Law. In the process, the U.S. semiconductor industry has become one of the nation's largest export industries, valued at more than $65 billion a year.

Billions of Words: Visualizing Natural Language

February 27, 2015 3:14 pm | by Benjamin Recchie, University of Chicago | News | Comments

Children don’t have to be told that “cat” and “cats” are variants of the same word — they pick it up just by listening. To a computer, though, they’re as different as, well, cats and dogs. Yet it’s computers that are assumed to be superior in detecting patterns and rules, not four-year-olds. Researchers are trying to, if not to solve that puzzle definitively, at least provide the tools to do so.
