Create standalone simulation tools to facilitate collaboration between HEP and machine learning community

Discussions at recent workshops have made it clear that one of the key barriers to collaboration between high energy physics and the machine learning community is access to training data. Recent successes in data sharing through the... continue reading

From Budapest via San Francisco to The Hague: a bird's eye view of two dozen scholarly communication charters.

Idea: speeding up the transition towards a scholarly commons by summarizing and reviewing existing charters and pinpointing where there’s still work to be done.

Science is in transition. But in what direction, demanded by whom, accepted by whom... continue reading

Software Discovery Dashboard

This project’s objective is to create an open source web dashboard capable of searching multiple code hosting services, such as Zenodo, Figshare, and GitHub, for the benefit of the research community. The goal of this dashboard is to demonstrate... continue reading

Open Cosmics: cosmic-ray physics for everyone

Simple devices like Cloud Chambers, Bubble Chambers, CosmicPi and Crayfis allow us to detect particle decays from cosmic rays which are not visible to the naked eye. Cloud Chambers and Bubble Chambers were used for particle physics research at... continue reading

Change the way you publish - Research platforms/databases can take your country to newer heights

JBI is quite an exciting platform to write and I intuitively relate it to my Twitter handle. But this article is much beyond how JBI or any other typical journal works. The idea that a country is making any headway in research and development... continue reading

Magnification of arsenic poisoning factors along the length of river

Previous studies have not explored the link between the downstream distance of rivers and increased incidence of arsenic toxicity. We find that in South Asia almost all the sites of arsenic toxicity are close to a river and are furthest from the... continue reading

Is exogenous insulin inevitable for diabetics?

Endogenous insulin production ceases with the loss of pancreatic islet β-cells, caused by autoimmune antibodies 1, [2,... continue reading

Relationship between strokes and seizures

During the four years that I cared for a person who had several strokes, I observed that the epileptic seizures which followed, often improved the condition caused by the strokes. It led me to consider, that epileptic seizures might be a self -... continue reading

Why is the rate of incidence of diabetes increasing?

The increasing rate of diabetes, often attributed to overweight associated with hypercaloric diets, has led to numerous dietary and lifestyle intervention trials. In these, the dietary components have focused particularly on controlling caloric... continue reading

Build a molecular computer

Define a molecular computer as one molecule which transforms, by random chemical reactions mediated by a collection of enzymes, into a predictable other molecule, such that the output molecule can be conceived as the result of a computation... continue reading
