Let there be light

August 24, 2023

Facial recognition software works best with images captured in daylight but has difficulty with visuals taken in darkness or low light using thermal or infrared cameras. Converting these images into clear photos for accurate facial verification is challenging and requires a process called Thermal-to-Visible (T2V) image translation. Johns Hopkins engineers have devised a way to […]

Machine learning helps scientists see how the brain adapts to different environments

June 8, 2023

Johns Hopkins scientists have developed a method involving artificial intelligence to visualize and track changes in the strength of synapses—the connection points through which nerve cells in the brain communicate—in live animals. The technique, described in Nature Methods, should lead to a better understanding of how such connections in human brains change with learning, aging, injury, and […]
