Deep Learning Finds a New Human Ancestor

Deep Learning Finds a New Human Ancestor

Researchers combined statistical methods with deep learning algorithms to find an unknown human ancestor. Investigators from the Institute of Evolutionary Biology (IBE), the Institute of Genomics at the University of Tartu, and the Center for Genomic Regulation (CRG) found the footprint of a new human ancestor. The computational analysis of the DNA revealed that the…

Flight Attendants have a Higher Risk of Cancer. Here is why

Spending most of their time in the thinner atmosphere is leading flight attendants to various forms of cancer. Traveling by air is considered the safest means of transportation as the count of airplane accidents is quite low. Despite the fact that the chances of survival are nearly non-existent in case of an accident, it is…
