An international team led by UNIGE, HUG and NUS has developed an innovative method for evaluating AI interpretability methods, with the aim of deciphering the basis of AI reasoning and possible biases. Researchers from the University of Geneva , the Geneva University Hospitals (HUG), and the National University of Singapore (NUS) have developed a novel method for evaluating the interpretability of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies, opening the door to greater transparency and trust in AI-driven diagnostic and predictive tools.
New research has debunked the idea that there is an "obesity paradox", whereby patients with heart failure who are overweight or obese are thought to be less likely to end up in hospital or die than people of normal weight.
Temperature influences how badly pesticides affect bees' behaviour, suggesting uncertain impacts under climate change, according to a new study.
Researchers from the University of Twente developed a new composite material that outperforms the individual compounds by one to two orders of magnitude. The composite consists of several earth-abundant elements, that could potentially be used for efficient hydrogen generation without rare and precious metals like platinum. The researchers published their findings in the scientific journal ACS Nano.
The IFIC develops a technology to better visualise the distribution of radiopharmaceuticals in the patient’s body
A team from the Institute of Corpuscular Physics (IFIC/UV-CSIC) is developing a photon detection and imaging system that will allow visualising, during a medical treatment, the distribution of the radiopharmaceutical in the patient's body. This technology verifies the final destination of the drug and allows a better estimate of the radiation dose received by both the tumour itself and the vital organs.
Novel research from the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) examining the human walk has been able to predict leg and foot proportions using collisional geometry. The findings suggest why modern humans have a knee halfway down their legs, short heel and toes, a stiff, longer midfoot, and why a comfortable step is two to three feet long.
Clinical researchers from Oxford University's Department of Psychiatry and Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust have reviewed the international research evidence regarding the impact of viewing images of self-harm on the internet and in social media. This indicates that viewing such images usually causes harm, though the findings also highlighted the complexity of the issue.
The Commission of experts coordinated by UPF Prof. Joan Benach, together with the Second Vice-President of the Spanish Government and Minister of Labor and Social Economy, Yolanda Díaz, presented on Friday, March 17 the first government-driven report on the effects of work precariousness on mental health: "Precarious work and mental health: knowledge and policies".
