Essential Science: Nature will now define the kilogram

The original kilogram is no more, or at least it will remain locked in a Paris vault never to be used for official purposes, such as calibrating national weight standard again. Instead there’s a new approach for assessing global mass.

Mass movement: scientists adopt new kilogram definition

Paris - How we measure the world underwent a quantum leap on Monday as scientists adopted new hyper-accurate definitions for units of weight, electricity and temperature derived from the universal laws of Nature.

Teaching AI to see like a human by filling in the blanks

A new type of artificial intelligence has been developed, which is said by its inventors to see like a human. This has been a achieved by building on existing forms of AI and filling in the blanks that have previously limited full visual perception.
