UA engineers have demonstrated for the first time that it's possible to connect a network of sensors through quantum entanglement. The experiment opens a door to unprecedented levels of sensitivity in GPS navigation, medical imaging and astronomy.
Data privacy laws require encryption and, in some cases, transforming the original data to 'protected data' before it's released to external parties. But for researchers like Matthew Schneider, Ph.D., of Drexel University's LeBow College of Business, this isn't adequate. Schneider and Dawn Iacobucci, Ph.D., of Vanderbilt University, proposed a new methodology that permanently alters survey datasets to protect consumers' privacy -- when data is shared -- while still preserving a level of reasonable accuracy for these datasets.
After surveying smartphone users, UW researchers found that many people misunderstand online status indicators but still carefully shape their behavior to control how they are displayed to others.
A special issue from the Journal of Public Policy & Marketing explores the definition of consumer access and consumer power with some insights being prophetic as it relates to access during the current global health crisis.
Emitting light from silicon has been the 'Holy Grail' in the microelectronics industry for decades. Solving this puzzle would revolutionize computing, as chips will become faster than ever. Researchers from Eindhoven University of Technology now succeeded: they have developed an alloy with silicon that can emit light. The results have been published in the journal Nature. The team will now start creating a silicon laser to be integrated into current chips.
Activity from phony Twitter accounts established by the Russian Internet Research Agency (IRA) between 2015 and 2017 may have contributed to politicizing Americans' position on the nature and efficacy of vaccines, a health care topic which has not historically fallen along party lines, according to new research published in the American Journal of Public Health.
The temptation for businesses to use artificial intelligence and other technology to improve performance, drive down labor costs, and better the bottom line is understandable. But before pursuing automation that could put the jobs of human employees at risk, it is important that business owners take careful stock of their operations.
During the 2016 election cycle, politically polarizing tweets by Russian trolls about vaccination included pro- and anti-vaccination messages targeted at people with specific political inclinations through a nine different fake persona types, according to a new study. Now, as the nation deals with the coronavirus pandemic, the researchers raise concerns that such polarization potentially affects crisis communications and creates tensions, mistrust, and a lack of intention to comply with government health directives.
Engineers at Caltech have shown that atoms in optical cavities could be foundational to the creation of a quantum internet.
Researchers have demonstrated a new model of how competing pieces of information spread in online social networks and the Internet of Things (IoT). The findings could be used to disseminate accurate information more quickly, displacing false information about anything from computer security to public health.
