Intuition and rational thinking are two separate paths that must, however, interact so that we can make good decisions, researcher says. She notes that intuition can be studied using hard data, for example by measuring skin conductivity.
Computers still run slower than the human brain. However, if their speed continues to increase at the current rate, they will reach the capabilities of the human brain in the coming decades - told PAP Prof. Jürgen Schmidhuber, called the "father of modern artificial intelligence".
Researchers from the University of Gdańsk have developed an innovative, quick bladder cancer test. The efficacy of the test has been demonstrated in preliminary studies performed on 85 subjects. Further - recently started - trials will include one thousand people.
Physicists from the University of Gdańsk are working on new theoretical mechanisms that will allow to better characterize multi-particle systems. This will increase the accuracy of physical measurements, and in the future may help build quantum computers.
