Using waste matter to make important nanostructured carbon

Using waste matter to make important nanostructured carbon
Description
Biomass, particularly agricultural, industrial and food waste, is an attractive resource as it is often of zero or even negative value to the producer. For a materials chemist, it is a treasure trove of complex biological chemicals such as cellulose and lignin. In our research, we discover ways to convert these biological materials into materials for a wide range of potential applications, such as water treatment or batteries.

Mapping biological sequences or tracking tweets: computer scientists find new, unique approaches to data analysis

Mapping biological sequences or tracking tweets: computer scientists find new, unique approaches to data analysis
Description
Classification models are of overall importance in a variety of data analysis tasks, like classifying patient data to diseases or images to categories. If the training data for these models are vectorial and expected to be fully labeled, effective classifiers are readily available. In the modern world where data are generated much quicker than we are able to analyze it, the labeling of data becomes very costly and is often partially missing.
