Neural representations of space in the hippocampus of a food-caching bird

Conserved spatial memory mechanismsFood-caching birds are memory specialists that can remember thousands of hidden food items. Using electrophysiological recordings from freely behaving birds, Payne et al. analyzed neuronal activity in the likely hippocampus homolog of two bird species, the tufted titmouse and the zebra finch. They chose these two species to compare, respectively, birds that…

New, neural network offers accurate prediction of protein folding

Researchers present RoseTTAFold – a neural network approach for protein modeling with accuracies near those of what DeepMind’s AlphaFold2 has achieved, according to a new study. What’s more, the powerful new tool’s code, as well as a public server, are being made freely available to the scientific community. Proteins are the building blocks of life…

GAN Theft Auto is a neural network’s attempt to recreate GTA5

TL;DR: A couple of programmers wanted to see if they could train a generative adversarial network (GAN) to create its own version of Grand Theft Auto 5. The result was a somewhat blurry acid trip but is instantly recognizable as GTA5. Harrison Kinsley, who goes by Sentdex on YouTube, and his partner trained a fork…

Using neural networks to lip sync movie dubbing

You know how old Kung Fu movies have horrible dubbing where the words don’t match up with the mouth at all? Well Flawless AI is a company trying to fix that problem, using neural networks to essentially lip sync dubbing in movies. It’s a pretty interesting use of deepfake technology and a nice proof of…
