European researchers have designed brain-like artificial neural networks capable of numerical and spatial cognition and written language processing without any explicit training or pre-programming. Their work, based on the machine-learning approach of generative models, significantly advances the development of self-learning artificial intelligence, while also deepening understanding of human cognition.

An ambitious research project appears to have set out to prove the old adage that 'you are what you eat' by improving the health of animals. Scientists in Belgium are testing on piglets with an experimental feed made up from olive oil waste and a mixture of soya and cereals. It's not just a culinary caprice; they want to see if this menu boosts the animals health and productivity. [read more]
This high-level international conference will be an event of major strategic nature, with the participation of a broad spectrum of stakeholders and expected 500+ participants.It aims at improving visibility and support transition towards green economy, identifying policy options and priorities including future actions. It will initiate a discussion on green economy including financial and investment actors; will help to strengthen synergies between initiatives launched by the European Commission, Member States and business community, to the benefit of the overall coherence and delivery; will help start an informed policy dialogue, knowledge and experience sharing among all stakeholders involved – public administration, civil society, business, investors, academia, science as well as regional and local authorities. Online registration for the conference is open until 31 August 2016. [read more]
Remote sensing is widely used for security surveillance, military reconnaissance and environmental monitoring. An EU-funded project's signal processing system improves images and range information from the collected data using smaller, lighter recording devices than traditional systems. Two prototypes are already available. [read more]
