Traffic across the EU's external borders is on the rise, as is the threat posed by illegal immigration. As over 700 million people enter the EU each year, this puts considerable pressure on border agencies that must adhere to strict security protocols while at the same time ensuring the smooth flow of traffic into the EU. Increased international trade and more sophisticated criminal activity make border checks even more challenging. Therefore, authorities need to provide a fast and efficient border clearance process while also safeguarding the safety and security of checkpoints.

17:22 Phys.orgArtificial intelligence detects the presence of viruses

Many biosensing applications rely on characterization of specific analytes such as proteins, viruses and bacteria, among many other targets, which can be accomplished by using micro- or nano-scale particles. In such biosensors, these particles are coated with a surface chemistry that makes them stick to the target analyte forming clusters in response. The higher the target analyte concentration is, the larger the number of clusters gets. Therefore, monitoring and characterizing these particle clusters can tell us if the target analyte is present in a sample and in what concentration. Current methods to perform such an analysis are limited in that they are either capable of only a coarse readout or rely on expensive and bulky microscopes, which limit their applicability to address different biosensing needs, especially in resource limited environments.

In 1998, Daniel Loss, one of the authors of the current study, proposed, along with David DiVincenzo of IBM, to build a quantum computer by using the spins of electrons embedded in a quantum dot. The first type of qubit used for the new system — a single-spin qubit called a Loss-DiVincenzo (LD) qubit — has high control fidelity, which makes it good for calculations. It also has a long decoherence time, so that it will stay in a given state for a relatively long time before losing its signal to the environment. The downside of the LD qubit is that it cannot be

A team of investigators from Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) has developed a system that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to diagnose and classify brain hemorrhages. The system uses relatively small image data sets to form its decisions. To train their system, the researchers began with 904 computed tomography (CT) scans of the head, each consisting of around 40 individual images that were labeled by a team of MGH neuroradiologists as to whether they depicted one of five hemorrhage subtypes or no hemorrhage. To improve the system’s accuracy, the team built in steps mimicking the way radiologists analyze images. Once the model system was created, the investigators tested it on two separate sets of CT scans — a retrospective set taken before the system was developed, consisting of 100 scans with and 100 without intracranial hemorrhage, and a prospective set of 79 scans with

11:05 Nanowerk.comNew version of memory could power AI phones, smart devices

For the first time, researchers have successfully developed a new version of phase-change memory that reduces the switching time and allows memory cells to produce excellent stability. The new type of phase-change memory can be as fast as state-of-the-art RAM chips being considered to power artificial intelligence (AI) in phones, and it could also be used to power a range of other smart devices. The new version of phase-change memory could be manufactured with a cheap process: The procedure uses a normal voltage pulse and requires no additional special materials.

22:19 Photonics.comMachine Learning Identifies Nearly All US Solar Panels from 1 Billion Images

Stanford University scientists developed a machine learning program that analyzed more than 1 billion high-resolution satellite images and identified nearly every photovoltaic solar power installation in the contiguous 48 U.S. states. They found 1.47 million installations, more than previous estimates. Their results, which include activators and impediments to solar deployment, are publicly available on the project’s website. The team provided its machine learning program, named DeepSolar, with about 370,000 images. Each image was labeled as either having or not having a solar panel present. From these images, DeepSolar learned to identify features associated with solar panels — for example, color, texture, and size. “All of these need to be learned by the machine,” said researcher Jiafan Yu. DeepSolar learned to identify images containing solar panels with 93 percent
