Scientists can now predict intelligence from brain scans

If you've ever lied about your IQ to seem more intelligent, it's time to fess up. Scientists can now tell how smart you are...
MIT researchers describe a machine-learning algorithm that can register brain scans and other 3-D images more than 1,000 times more quickly using novel learning techniques.

Faster analysis of medical images

Until now, MRI technique has been used to form pictures of the anatomy and the physiological processes of the body in both health and disease. This...
