Scientists take to Twitter to study flying ants, starling murmurations and house spiders

Searching tweets for text or hashtags allowed researchers to gather information on popular ecological phenomena observed in the UK such as the emergence of...

At last, a simple 3D printer for metal

The 3D printing of plastics has largely come of age in the last decade, solving many of the engineering challenges in the process. These solutions...

Machine learning can more naturally detect depression in conversations

To diagnose depression, clinicians interview patients, asking specific questions — about, say, past mental illnesses, lifestyle, and mood — and identify the condition based...
