Psychologist Dr Kyle Wilson takes a 'human look' at a new vehicle traffic light app ahead of plans to introduce similar devices into 'connected vehicles'
At the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy this week, researchers from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory are presenting a new system that uses Bitcoin's security machinery to defend against online identity theft.
Brown University computer scientists have shown a new way to help prevent users of data exploration software from making false discoveries.
A recent study, published in Open Archaeology, provides a new perspective on the severe impacts of escalating climate change on the heritage resources of Canadian Arctic. Referring to the application of Geographic Information System analytical methods in assessing the threat of shoreline erosion to archaeological sites, it details steps taken to review the quality of the GIS model in light of a discrepancy with rates observed during actual survey visits.
The very design features that make Bitcoin technology appealing to its users are also weaknesses being exploited for the theft of the cryptocurrency -- new research reveals. Transparent design features are supposed to promote trust in Bitcoin. However, computer scientists at Lancaster University and Universiti Teknologi MARA (Malaysia) show that these features are presenting opportunities for fraud- undermining trust in the currency.
Weighing oneself has become one of the most common morning rituals. However, your weight is not the only message that can be delivered by your bathroom scales: the team of researchers at Kaunas University of Technology (KTU) Institute of Biomedical Engineering are developing the multifunctional scales, which can monitor your health and inform about potentially dangerous life conditions, such as arteriosclerosis or cardiac arrhythmia.
Technology developed by Princeton University computer scientists may do for audio recordings of the human voice what word processing software did for the written word. The software, named VoCo, provides an easy means to add or replace a word in an audio recording of a human voice by editing a transcript of the recording. New words are automatically synthesized in the speaker's voice even if they don't appear anywhere else in the recording.
Flash organizations are a new crowdsourcing technique that enables anyone to assemble an entire organization from a paid crowdsourcing marketplace and lead that organization in pursuit of complex, open-ended goals.
A deep-learning computer network developed through research led by Case Western Reserve University was 100 percent accurate in determining whether invasive forms of breast cancer were present in whole biopsy slides. The network correctly made the same determination in each individual pixel of the slide 97 percent of the time, rendering near-exact delineations of the tumors.
Through a combination of 3-D modeling, digital fabrication and other techniques, a Dartmouth-led research team has replicated sections of popular, outdoor rock climbing routes on an indoor climbing wall. The study demonstrates how these technologies can be used strategically to reproduce large-scale environments by considering how users interact with such sites. Here is the video about the study to be presented at ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, on May 9.
