Finding faces in a crowd: Context is key when looking for small things in images
Spotting a face in a crowd, or recognizing any small or distant object within a large image, is a major challenge for computer vision systems. The trick to finding tiny objects, say researchers at Carnegie Mellon University, is to look for larger things associated with them. An improved method for coding that crucial context from an image has enabled CMU researchers to demonstrate a significant advance in detecting tiny faces. (2017-03-30)

A faster single-pixel camera

New software automates brain imaging
When humans and animals learn and form memories, the physical structures of their brain cells change. Scientists have observed this process, known as long-term structural plasticity, in individual spines, but doing so requires substantial time and effort. A new technique, developed by Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience researchers, automates the process to make observing and quantifying this growth far more efficient. The open-source method is available to any scientist hoping to image plasticity as it happens in dendritic spines. (2017-02-03)

Scientists show how cells communicate
Primary cilia are antenna-like structures that are present on the surface of most cells in the human body. The cilia are essential mediators of communication between the different cells in the body. If the cilia are defective, this communication is disrupted, and the cells are unable to appropriately regulate several important cellular processes, which ultimately can lead to severe diseases that may affect nearly every organ and tissue in the body, in the developing embryo as well as in the adult.
