Research: AI aids in finding new space anomalies

Moscow [Russia], August 5 (ANI): Seven of the 11 previously undetected space anomalies were found by the SNAD team, an international network of researchers that includes Matvey Kornilov, Associate Professor at the Faculty of Physics at the HSE University. In order to find anomalies using the "nearest neighbour" method, the researchers used a k-D tree to analyse digital images of the Northern sky taken in 2018. Algorithms for machine learning assisted in automating the search.

Study finds how bats use echoes to form image of their surroundings

Frankfurt [Germany], August 5 (ANI): The ultrasonic navigation system used by bats is well known: they produce ultrasonic sounds to orient themselves and use the echoes that result to form an image of their surroundings. For instance, the Seba's short-tailed bat (Carollia perspicillata) uses echolocation to locate the fruits that make up its favourite diet. Additionally, bats interact with one another through vocalisations. For this, they employ a slightly smaller spectrum of frequencies.
