    DeepMind AlphaGo: AI Teaches Itself 'Thousands of Years of Human Knowledge' Without HelpDeepMind researchers have developed an artificial intelligence program that has taught itself “thousands of years of human knowledge” from scratch in just a few days. The AlphaGo Zero algorithm, created by the Alphabet (formerly Google) subsidiary DeepMind and detailed in the journal Nature this week, mastered the classic strategy game Go without human input, while reaching a level never before reached by humans or computers.

  • Trump says Puerto Rico hurricane response was a '10' but these numbers prove otherwise      Thu, 19 Oct 2017 16:17:47 -0400

    Trump says Puerto Rico hurricane response was a '10' but these numbers prove otherwisePresident Trump gave the federal response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico a 10 out of 10 on Thursday. Yes. Really. He gave himself the highest marks for what has been a well-documented and tragic mess.

  • Delhi braces for pollution 'airpocalypse' as smog looms      Thu, 19 Oct 2017 00:41:45 -0400

    Delhi braces for pollution 'airpocalypse' as smog loomsAs Hindus across India celebrate Diwali this week, scientists fear a ban on firecrackers and other emergency anti-pollution measures deployed by authorities may not be enough to prevent a repeat of last year's "airpocalypse" in Delhi. Each year, as winter descends on the Indian capital, a perfect storm of seasonal crop stubble burning, dense cloud cover and smoke generated by millions of firecrackers used in Diwali celebrations turns Delhi's skies a putrid yellow. This time they are taking few chances, as India's environmental watchdog shut down a coal-fired power plant on Wednesday and banned the use of diesel generators in Delhi.

    Israel: Biblical Roman Stables Discovered in Area Where Jesus Lived and PreachedA family digging in their garden in the Israeli village of Eilabun have unwittingly uncovered a complex of underground stables, hewn into the soft rock in Roman times 2,000 years ago. Archaeologists, led by Nir Distelfeld, told Haaretz that the man-made caves would also have been used for storage, given some of the remnants found there. The animals would have been tied to the carved holes that formed a handle, with a stone trough laid below them for food and water.

  • World's deepest lake in peril, scientists warn      Thu, 19 Oct 2017 07:19:55 -0400

    World's deepest lake in peril, scientists warnLake Baikal is undergoing its gravest crisis in recent history, experts say, as the government bans the catching of a signature fish that has lived in the world's deepest lake for centuries but is now under threat. Holding one-fifth of the world's unfrozen fresh water, Baikal in Russia's Siberia is a natural wonder of "exceptional value to evolutionary science" meriting its listing as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Starting in October, the government introduced a ban on all commercial fishing of omul, a species of the salmon family only found in Baikal, fearing "irreversible consequences for its population", the Russian fisheries agency told AFP.

  • Now we know how the EPA's Scott Pruitt will replace science advisors with industry      Wed, 18 Oct 2017 16:35:44 -0400

    Now we know how the EPA's Scott Pruitt will replace science advisors with industryEnvironmental Protection Agency (EPA) administrator Scott Pruitt is about to take a major step toward reshaping the agency's scientific advisory committees. This action, to come in the form of a directive next week, will effectively replace scientists on scientific advisory committees with representatives of the industries the EPA regulates.  Apparently conflict of interest means different things to different people. Typically staffed by top experts, the EPA's scientific advisory committees are tasked with ensuring that the scientific information the agency uses in its rule-making is the best-available data on the topic.  SEE ALSO: EPA chief denies carbon dioxide is main cause of global warming and... wait, what!? This is especially important since the EPA gets sued constantly, so any rules or other actions the agency takes could be vulnerable in court if the science underpinning the decision turns out to be flawed or out of date.  Pruitt has already taken unprecedented steps to alter the composition of these committees, including  not renewing terms for existing panel members, or dismissing members outright.  The coal-fired Plant Scherer, one of the nation's top carbon dioxide emitters, stands in the distance in Juliette, Ga., June, 3, 2017.Image: AP/REX/ShutterstockOn Tuesday, in a speech at the conservative Heritage Foundation in Washington, Pruitt announced the next step in his quest to bring more industry-friendly voices to the committees. He said he plans to issue a directive next week that would prohibit anyone from serving on an advisory committee who has received grant funding from the EPA.  While that might seem like a commonsense move toward greater independence, the fact is that the EPA is one of the largest funding sources of environmental health research. Therefore, this requirement will likely disqualify hundreds of potential committee members, and instead allow representatives of industries regulated by the EPA — such as the chemical and energy industries —  to gain more representation.  “The scientists that make up these bodies, and there are dozens and dozens of these folks, over the years as they’ve served on these committees, guess what’s also happened? They’ve received monies through grants, and sometimes substantial monies through grants," Pruitt said.  One agency watchdog, Michael Halpern of the Union of Concerned Scientists, called Pruitt's move "gobsmackingly boneheaded."  The implicit message in Pruitt's statement is that money going to scientific research somehow biases scientists and the advice they would give. This is a common argument put forward by climate deniers who assail the government's grants for scientific research. (Perhaps it's not a surprise that Pruitt denies that carbon dioxide is the main driver of global warming, then.) "And if we have individuals that are on those boards receiving money from the agency sometimes going back years and years to the tune of literally tens of millions of dollars over time, that to me causes question on the independence and the veracity and the transparency of those recommendations that are coming our way," Pruitt said. Hinting at the upcoming actions, Pruitt said:  The UCS' Halpern wrote in a blog post that Pruitt's actions were grossly distorting the meaning of conflicts of interest.  "Getting science advice from the EPA Science Advisory Board is like getting basketball tips from 40 Steph Currys. It’s the best in the business, volunteering their time in service of the public good," Halpern, the deputy director of the Center for Science and Democracy, wrote. "So let’s recap: according to some, scientists who receive money from oil and chemical companies are perfectly qualified to provide the EPA with independent science advice, while those who receive federal grants are not. It’s a fundamental misrepresentation of how conflicts of interest work." During the same Heritage Foundation appearance, which was broadcast via Facebook Live, Pruitt also addressed his desire for public debates on the fundamentals of climate science, which he says has never happened despite decades to centuries of open, peer-reviewed research. 2016 was the warmest year on record, beating the previous record set the year before.Image: bob al-greene/mashableSuch red team, blue team debates, currently slated to take place early in 2018, are widely seen among scientists as an attempt to confuse the public about the reliability of climate science findings.  Pruitt, clearly sees it differently.  “The American people deserve, in my view, an objective, transparent, honest discussion about what we know and what we don’t know about CO2," Pruitt said. "It’s never taken place.” Earlier this month, Pruitt announced the withdrawal of the Obama administration's Clean Power Plan, which covered greenhouse gas emissions from the power sector.  For now, at least, the EPA isn't putting any replacement rules into effect, despite a Supreme Court-mandated requirement to do so.  It looks like we'll have to wait-and-see what the new advisory committees have to say about this.
