Abstract : The life of any organism depends on the ability of cells to accurately recognize and eliminate harmful microbes. In order to detect the immense repertoire of pathogenic entities, the innate immune system of mammals has evolved a range of distinct sensing strategies. One major mechanism is based on the recognition of microbial DNA ... Read more about "Innate DNA sensing through the cGAS-STING system - Blurring the boundary between PAMP and DAMP"

We propose a novel deep learning tool for materials discovery. The approach merges together both experimental data and computer simulations to exploit all possible sources of information. The tool has been used to design several materials that have been experimentally verified and patented. We present just one case study where we discover and characterize the ...

In this talk I discuss Hamiltonian truncation, a toolkit to construct quantum field theories. Hamiltonian truncation is in many ways orthogonal to the more familiar lattice regularization, and it can be used to systematically compute QFT observables with little computational effort. In the first part of this talk I will review the basic idea behind ... Read more about "Hamiltonian truncation and the S^3 partition function"

Protein conformational changes induced by external perturbations or internal cues can profoundly influence protein activity and thus modulate cellular physiology. Mass spectrometry (MS)-based proteomic techniques are routinely used to measure changes in protein abundance, post-translational modification and protein interactors, but much less is known about alterations in protein structures. Prof. Paola Picotti will present a ... Read more about "In situ analyses of protein structural changes in health and disease"

The quality of samples has, however, remained less than ideal. We describe a new GAN training methodology that yields samples of unprecedented quality. The key idea is to grow ...

Deep learning has been immensely successful at a variety of tasks, ranging from classification to artificial intelligence. Yet why it works is unclear. Learning corresponds to fitting training data, which is implemented by descending a very high-dimensional loss function. Two central questions are (i) since the loss is a priori not convex, why doesn't this ... Read more about "On the geometry of the landscape underlying deep learning"

Electroencephalography and surface electromyography are notoriously cumbersome technologies. A typical setup may involve bulky electrodes, dandling wires, and a large amplifier unit. The wide adaptation of these technologies in numerous applications has been accordingly fairly limited. Thanks to the availability of printed electronics technologies, it is now possible to dramatically simplify these techniques. Elegant electrode ...

Geometrically frustrated assemblies Abstract: Unlike Lego bricks that perfectly assemble next to one another, in molecular assemblies some misfit is almost always present. The molecular constituents thus must distort in order to form an aggregate, resulting in a frustrated assembly.

Previous studies have identified well-replicated structural abnormalities of white matter in schizophrenia, including in first-episode and treatment-naive patients. However, the causality of these changes has been difficult to ascertain. Seemingly unrelated abnormalities of parvalbumin (PV) interneurons in schizophrenia post-mortem neocortex have also been consistently observed, the leading candidate mechanism for disease-related deficits in gamma oscillations. ...

We develop and test a model in which upfront fees are used to compensate lenders for the penalty-free prepayment option in bank loans. In the model, borrowers learn of their type after investing the loan, causing high-quality borrowers to prepay (or renegotiate).

An incentive to use coarse-grained models is to use them for inference and control instead of the original (often intractable) model.
