Cheating in online chess is a huge problem – here’s how scientists are trying to spot it

A few years A few days ago, chess website Chess.com temporarily banned US grandmaster Hans Niemann for playing chess moves online that the site suspected was suggested to him by a computer program. He reportedly previously banned his mentor, Maxim Dlugy. And at the Sinquefield Cup earlier this month, world champion Magnus Carlsen resigned without …

Quantum entanglement enables a range of futuristic technologies.

The Nobel Prize in Physics is awarded to scientists who have paved the way for quantum computing

Three scientists who laid the groundwork for understanding the strange “entangled” behavior of quantum particles have been awarded the 2022 Nobel Prize in Physics. French physicist Alain Aspect, Austrian Anton Zeilinger and American John Clauser were honored for their experiments exploring the nature of entangled quantum particles. Defying the logic of our everyday reality, these …

Machine learning helps scientists peer (one second) into the future

The past can be a fixed and unchanging point, but with the help of machine learning, the future can sometimes be more easily guess. Using a new type of machine learning method called next generation tank computingOhio State University researchers recently found a new way to predict the behavior of chaotic spatiotemporal systems – such …
