Researchers from the University of Connecticut and Free University of Berlin published new research in the INFORMS journal Management Science that provides companies with substantiated, actionable insights on strategies for effectively responding to situations where their highly compensated celebrity endorsers generate negative publicity.
In response to serious new security flaws found in almost every computer chip on the market today, researchers at Technische Universität Kaiserslautern, Germany, in collaboration with scientists at Stanford, have developed a mathematical algorithm to automate and expedite the process of finding flaws in future designs prior to production.
A new study, published in Geophysical Research Letters, reveals the importance of a small number of intense storms around Antarctica in controlling the amount of snow falling across the continent.
As FDA approval of the first postpartum depression drug hits the news, study looks at how infant fussiness and a baby's level of prematurity may influence the severity of maternal depressive symptoms.
Scientists at the University of Tokyo introduced a novel machine learning algorithm for the rapid prediction of a materials properties and structures based on spectral scans. The program may be extremely useful for researchers when prototyping novel nanodevices.
For many years we have been hearing that holographic technology is one step closer to realizing Star Trek's famous Holodeck, a virtual reality stage that simulates any object in 3D as if they are real. Sadly, 3D holographic projection has never been realized. A team of scientists from Bilkent University, Turkey, again raised our hopes on Holodeck realization by showing the first realistic 3D holograms that can be viewed from any angle. Dr. Ghaith Makey, the lead author of the paper appearing in the April 2019 issue of Nature Photonics today, says 'Our technique can work in realtime, and will surely pave the way to dynamic 3D video holography. Soon, it may be possible to create a simple version of a Holodeck'.
A new study used a targeting strategy that tracks where, when, and for how long consumers are in a shopping mall to determine how shoppers' physical movements affect their economic choices. The study found that targeting potential customers in this way can significantly improve advertising via mobile phones.
There are currently more than three million people in the US with hepatitis C, a condition that can lead to serious and even deadly liver complications. In the US prison system, the prevalence of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is currently 10 times higher than the national average. However, new research in the INFORMS journal Operations Research, has identified new protocols that could substantially decrease HCV infection in the US prison system.
New insight into termites' architectural strategies could help us design more energy efficient self-sustaining buildings for humans.
A sophisticated new analysis too incorporating advanced mathematical strategies could help revolutionize the way researchers investigate the spread and distribution of dangerous, fast-evolving disease vectors.
