Dinosaurs evolved into birds, researchers say

After ´shrinking´ for 50 million years, dinosaurs evolved into birds to survive, according to a new study. The analysis suggests how the ancestors in the birds had been the theropods, as soon as the latter more and more decreased bigger and as time passes began to formulate bird-like capabilities. Leer más

Sex addicts show similar brain activity to drug addicts, study finds

Pornography triggers similar activity in the brains of people with compulsive sexual behaviour as triggered by drugs in the brains of drug addicts, according to a study by Cambridge University. Individuals with compulsive sexual behavior and drug addicts show similar brain activities when exposed to stimuli. Researchers, however, said this does not prove compulsive sexual behaviour patients are addicted to pornography. Leer más

Educated people are more likely to suffer from sight problems

A new study in the journal Ophthalmology suggests reading and schoolwork may have a greater influence on nearsightedness (also called myopia) than genetics. The findings are based on 4,685 people who underwent eye exams and genetic tests and answered lifestyle surveys. Researchers from the University Medical Centre Mainz in Germany found that among people who had graduated from school after 13 years 60.3 percent were near-sighted. Leer más

The program is called LEVAN

A computer program learns about ´everything´ identifying images

Scientists have created the first-fully automated computer programme that teaches itself everything there is to know about any visual concept. Called Learning Everything about Anything, or Levan, the programme searches millions of books and images on the web to learn all possible variations of a concept, then displays the results to users as a comprehensive, browsable list of images, helping them explore and understand topics quickly in great detail.  Leer más
