Many of us struggle with mathematical concepts, yet we’re all equipped with an innate “number sense,” or numerosity. Thanks to a strange group of “number neurons” buried in the visual cortex, human newborns, monkeys, cows, and other animals have the curious superpower to glance at a scene and intuitively gauge how much stuff is in […]

The social media giant announced in a blog post Monday that its engineers, working with computer scientists from New York University, have reduced the time it takes to teach a robotic arm how to grasp objects to tens of tries, rather than hundreds or thousands. It may seem like a tangential development -- Facebook doesn’t sell robots, after all -- but advancements in robotics can lead to improvements in other forms of machine-learning, smartening the software Facebook has begun to use to spot harmful or unfavorable behavior of users on the social network. “The great thing about robotics is that it takes place in real time, in the real world,” Antoine Bordes, co-managing director of the company’s artificial intelligence research labs, said in an interview last week in Paris.

Physicists from the University of Vienna and the Institute of Photonic Sciences have shown that graphene structures can be tailored to enable single photons to interact with one another. Their findings have led them to propose a new potential architecture for a two-photon logic gate for quantum computing. Logic gates — the devices that allow one photon to change the state of a second photon — will be needed in large numbers to build a photonic quantum computer. One way to achieve this is to build gates using a nonlinear material in which two photons can interact. However, standard nonlinear materials are too inefficient to be used for this purpose.

The team further proposes to enhance
