Machine learning speeds up simulations in material science

Machine learning speeds up simulations in material science

Research, development, and production of novel materials depend heavily on the availability of fast and at the same time accurate simulation methods. Machine learning, in which artificial intelligence (AI) autonomously acquires and applies new knowledge, will soon enable researchers to develop complex material systems in a purely virtual environment. How does this work, and which applications will benefit? In an article published in the Nature Materials journal, a researcher from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and his colleagues from Göttingen and Toronto explain it all.

How AI and machine learning help fight the COVID-19 battle

How AI and machine learning help fight the COVID-19 battle

It is hard to imagine fighting a global pandemic without technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). The exponential rise of Covid-19 cases around the world left many health infrastructures paralyzed. However, institutions, governments, and organizations were able to fight back with the help of advanced technologies. Artificial intelligence and machine learning, once seen as a luxury for elevated lifestyles and productivity, have become life-saving agents in combating Covid thanks to their innumerable applications.

What Hedges Your Bonds Best—Gold Or Bitcoin?

What Hedges Your Bonds Best—Gold Or Bitcoin?

Holy grail for the fixed-income investor: an asset that has a decent return of its own and runs counter to the bond market. Blend this magic stuff with your Treasury bonds and you’d have a solid core holding—something that wouldn’t be utterly destroyed by a burst of inflation.

Don't Be Fooled, InsurTech Isn't A New Thing

Don’t Be Fooled, InsurTech Isn’t A New Thing

Insurtech comes from combining the words insurance and technology, and is not a new thing, even if some want to make us believe otherwise.

Throughout its history, the insurance industry has always adopted technology. From the board and chalk used to underwrite the first (marine) risks at Lloyd’s, to large computers to process data using punched cards, following the creation of databases, the portability of applications between servers thanks to the adoption of standard operating systems, and the emergence of personal computers. All of these have been critical moments for the industry in terms of the benefits of adopting these technologies, mainly aiming to provide greater security and traceability to recorded transactions, along with achieving greater efficiencies.

Expect More Bitcoin On Balance Sheets, As Paypal, MicroStrategy Fidelity And Walmart Sound Off On Blockchain

Expect More Bitcoin On Balance Sheets, As Paypal, MicroStrategy Fidelity And Walmart Sound Off On Blockchain

Building on its relatively new service letting Paypal’s 375 million customers buy, hold and sell cryptocurrency directly from their accounts, Dan Schulman, Paypal CEO, said on Tuesday that the company’s recently launched “Checkout With Crypto” service, which encourages purchases with bitcoin, ether, and other cryptocurrencies, will easily reach $200 million transaction volume within months. Schulman’s comments were delivered at Forbes’ third annual Blockchain 50 Symposium celebrating large companies using the technology behind bitcoin to improve their businesses. It took soon-to-go-public Coinbase, the United States’ largest crypto exchange, two years to reach the same volume on its similar merchant service. In the third quarter of 2020, Paypal had payment volume of $247 billion.
