Research showing why hierarchy exists will aid the development of artificial intelligence

New research explains why so many biological networks, including the human brain (a network of neurons), exhibit a hierarchical structure, and will improve attempts to create artificial intelligence. ..

Algorithm could help detect and reduce power grid faults

BINGHAMTON, NY - The power grid is aging, overburdened and seeing more faults than ever, according to many. Any of those breaks could easily lead to prolonged power outages or even equipment damage. ..
