Observatorio Gemini y Subaru unen fuerzas para descubrir la primera pareja de cuásares en el principio del Universo
NSF's NOIRLab

Un equipo de astrónomos descubrió una pareja de cuásares en fusión que bate todos los récords, ya que no sólo se trata de la más distante detectada hasta ahora, sino también del único par de este tipo que se encuentra en una de las épocas más tempranas del Universo. El hallazgo fue posible con la ayuda del poderoso instrumento GNIRS que se encuentra instalado en el telescopio de Gemini Norte, la mitad boreal del Observatorio Internacional Gemini, financiado en parte por la Fundación Nacional de Ciencias de Estados Unidos y operado por NOIRLab de NSF.

AI Recognizes Athletes’ Emotions
Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)

Using computer-assisted neural networks, Researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the University of Duisburg-Essen have been able to accurately identify affective states from the body language of tennis players during games. For the first time, they trained a model based on artificial intelligence (AI) with data from actual games.
