STOP! This is illegal. You may be monitored and fined. Did that get your attention? Good. Because according to a new UNLV study, this phrasing coupled with a graphic of a computer and download symbol with a prohibitive slash is the most effective way to stop music piracy.
A joint study by the BBC, UCL and the University of Barcelona shows that in virtual reality news experiences, basic interactivity can increase buy-in without compromising faithful reporting.
A new study in the Journal of Public Health indicates that advertising for alcohol is common in British television, and may be a potential driver of alcohol use in young people.
Stanford researchers found that people who underwent a virtual reality experience, called 'Becoming Homeless,' were more empathetic toward the homeless and more likely to sign a petition in support of affordable housing than other study participants.
Researchers at the University of Connecticut and University of Washington looked at the mechanisms involved in language learning among nine-month-olds, the youngest population known to be studied in relation to on-screen learning.
Innuendo alone in news coverage can fuel belief in conspiracy theories, according to a new study.
People who often use several different media devices, such as tablet, smartphone, or TV, at the same time (media multitasking) are more likely to use irrelevant information from their environment when forming impressions of people they don't know, according to a study published in the open-access journal BMC Psychology.
There's a surprising upside to the fact that many people edit their selfies on Instagram and other social media sites to enhance their appearance. A new study found that when women believed that selfies of thin and sexualized women had been edited, viewing these images had less negative impact on one aspect of their mental health.
With over three-quarters of Americans now owning a smartphone, healthcare researchers have speculated that the number of patients recording visits with their doctor was increasing. A new study by researchers from The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice is the first to measure the prevalence of recording of clinical visits in the United States. The study also assesses the attitudes of doctors and the public toward recording, and surveys 49 large health systems.
University of Tokyo researchers have developed a computational tool that can learn from headcam footage of complex tasks to predict where the user's future gaze will be focused. This tool combines 'visual-saliency' mapping of frames of footage based on distinctive visual features with 'gaze-prediction' mapping based on head movement and previous gaze direction. This tool could facilitate real-time guidance derived from headcam footage in situations involving complex tasks such as surgery and manufacturing.
