What is the value of a social media firm? Paying attention to what investors tune into keeps a finger on the pulse of market fluctuations. And a new study finds that retail investors pay attention to social media stocks over other stocks.
Researchers have developed a method to effectively compress the plot of a feature-length film in just a few, sometimes, silent seconds.
While news media reporting traffic crashes and fire-related deaths of infants and children is routine and often leads to preventative measures to reduce these deaths, there is little or no news coverage of sleep-related or sudden infants deaths, which contributes to the lack of efforts to prevent these deaths, according to a Rush physician.
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.
The earliest evidence of a drawing made by humans has been found in Blombos Cave in the southern Cape in South Africa. The drawing, which consists of three red lines cross-hatched with six separate lines, was intentionally drawn on a smooth silcrete flake about 73,000 years ago. This predates previous drawing from Africa, Europe and Southeast Asia by at least 30,000 years.
Researchers investigating the use of Twitter to propagate or debunk conspiracy theories related to the 2015-2016 Zika virus outbreak analyzed the content of more than 25,000 Tweets and the characteristics of the social networks used to disseminate them.
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.
You've likely heard of hot hands or hot streaks -- periods of repeated successes -- in sports, financial markets and gambling. But do hot streaks exist in individual creative careers?
Researchers from Indiana University's School of Public and Environmental Affairs compared social media ratings offered by patients with the extensive data available through the federal government's 'Hospital Compare' website.
Neuroscientists at the University of Pennsylvania and the U.S. Army Research Laboratory have forecasted what content will get passed along repeatedly.
