Scientists used an extremely high-resolution transmission electron microscope to capture 2D projections of the nanoparticle’s structure, and used an algorithm to stitch those together into a 3D reconstruction. The unprecedented detail sheds light on the material’s properties at the single-atom level and the insights gained from the particle’s structure could lead to new ways to

A group of Chinese ophthalmologists and scientists developed a deep learning algorithm to identify congenital cataracts, a rare eye disease responsible for nearly 10 percent of all vision loss in children worldwide. The researchers suggest the algorithm would assist humans, instead of replacing them. “For doctors, technology is not sufficient to determine the best course
