A new machine learning framework provides doctors with a reliable tool to help diagnose Alzheimer's disease early.

What do we know about monkeypox, what do we not know, and what efforts are going into modelling it?

The COVID-19 emergency resulted in some amazing mathematical collaborations.

Here's a simple game at which a human can out-fox even the cleverest algorithm.

The INI is celebrating its 30th birthday. What is it and what is it do for maths and mathematicians?

Suppose my strategy is to double at 2/3 + epsilon where epsilon < (4/5 - 2/3) instead of at your suggested value of 2/3.

Suppose you have just doubled at 2/3. Eventually the win chance will reach either 2/3 + epsilon or 1/2. In the former case we then are in the same position both having doubled and at the same win chance. In the second case we both have 1/2 win chance but I have cube access and you have given the cube to the opponent. I am in the better situation. Thus my strategy is better.
