A faster collision detection algorithm could enable robots to work more fluidly in the operating room or at home for assisted living. The algorithm, dubbed “Fastron,” runs up to 8 times faster than existing collision detection algorithms. It uses machine learning to help robots avoid moving objects and weave through complex, rapidly changing environments in real time.

Researchers studying how animals respond to infections have found a new pathway that may help in tolerating stressors that damage proteins. Naming the pathway the Intracellular Pathogen Response, the scientists say it is a newly discovered way for animals to cope with certain types of stress and attacks, including heat shock.

Scientists Decipher Mechanisms Underlying the Biology of Aging

Scientists have helped decipher the dynamics that control how our cells age, and with it implications for extending human longevity. The group used cutting-edge computational and experimental approaches to discover new details about chromatin silencing. The bottom line: balance is the key to aging.

A Third of the Internet is Under Attack

Spanning two years, from March 2015 to February 2017, CAIDA researchers and collaborators found that about one-third of the IPv4 address space was subject to some kind of DoS attacks, where a perpetrator maliciously disrupts services of a host connected to the internet.

The Health Cyberinfrastructure Division at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California San Diego, in partnership with University of California Office of the President (UCOP) Risk Services, has deployed a secure, HIPAA-compliant Hadoop-based Data Management System (DMS) within Sherlock Cloud. This secure platform will provide a mechanism to collect, process, and transform UC Healthcare data from multiple sources and various formats into a single, integrated data set to enable UCOP Risk Services better manage UC’s liability program.
