Intelligent cameras could be one step closer thanks to researchers who have developed cameras that can learn and understand what they are ...

Astronomers Solve Dark Matter Puzzle of Strange Galaxy

Astronomers have found that the total number of globular clusters around Dragonfly 44 and, therefore, the dark matter content, is much less than earlier findings had suggested, which shows that this ...

The Black Hole Always Chirps Twice: New Clues Deciphering the Shape of Black Holes

Gravitational-wave scientists reveal that when two black holes collide and merge, the remnant black hole 'chirps' not once, but multiple times, emitting gravitational waves -- intense ...

Earphone Tracks Facial Expressions, Even With a Face Mask

Researchers have invented an earphone that can continuously track full facial expressions by observing the contour of the cheeks - and can then translate expressions into emojis or silent speech ...
