Is the Universe finite or infinite? Is there infinity inside a black hole? Is space infinitely divisible or is there a shortest length? We talk to philosophers and physicists to find out.

Are there parallel universes? Universes in which, rather than reading this article, you are still asleep; in which you are happier, unhappier, richer, poorer, or even dead? The answer is "possibly". It's a controversial claim but one that has won more and more followers over the last few decades.

Mathematicians are developing new machine learning techniques to support medical doctors in their work.

The INTEGRAL project is using artificial intelligence to support the conservation of forests and make better, and healthier, planning decisions for our cities.

A new model of the formation of the Moon's crust finally explains the diversity and range of ages of rocks found on the lunar surface.

New techniques in artificial intelligence are helping assess the diversity of forests.

UK Schools have received more than 300,000 CO2 monitors as part of a government initiative that has received significant input from mathematicians.

We ask the INTEGRAL team about their innovative machine learning approaches to understanding remotely gathered images, and the significant impact these technologies can have on the world.

We may be a little closer to a direct detection of dark energy thanks to a new result that came about, in a sense, by accident.

Using artificial intelligence to improve traffic, protecting the environment and human health.
