Big Data help fight illegal fishing – Christien Absil concludes her series on shady fishing practices – Foodlog

Big Data help fight illegal fishing Christien Absil concludes

For centuries, fishermen operated out of sight and often out of mind. Certainly the fishing vessels on the open ocean could go about their business almost uncontrollably. Independent fisheries observers have one of the most dangerous jobs in the world: taking on hostile crew members, especially when they discover things like illegal fishing, human trafficking … Read more

Using sparse data to predict lab earthquakes

Journal Reference: Kun Wang, Christopher W. Johnson, Kane C. Bennett, Paul A. Johnson. Predicting fault slip via transfer learning. Nature Communications, 2021; 12 (1) DOI: 10.1038/s41467-021-27553-5 “The very long timescale between major earthquakes limits the data sets, since major faults may slip only once in 50 to 100 years or longer, meaning seismologists have had … Read more

Magnetic ‘hedgehogs’ could store big data in a small space

In a study published today in the journal Science, researchers at The Ohio State University used a magnetic microscope to visualize the patterns, formed in thin films of an unusual magnetic material, manganese germanide. Unlike familiar magnets such as iron, the magnetism in this material follows helices, similar to the structure of DNA. This leads … Read more

Artificial intelligence that can discover hidden physical laws in various data

This technology could enable us to discover the hidden equations of motion behind phenomena for which the laws were considered unexplainable. For example, it may be possible to use physics-based knowledge and simulations to examine ecosystem sustainability. The research group consisted of Associate Professor YAGUCHI Takaharu and PhD. student CHEN Yuhan (Graduate School of System … Read more
