Novel method for measuring spatial dependencies turns less data into more data
Researcher makes 'little data' act big through, the application of mathematical techniques normally used for time-series, to spatial processes. more...
A new approach to artificial intelligence that builds in uncertainty
Artificial intelligence isn't perfect. In fact, it's only as good as the methods and data built into it. Researchers have detailed a new approach to artificial intelligence that builds uncertainty, error, physical laws, expert knowledge and missing data into its calculations and leads ultimately to much more trustworthy models. more...
'Universal law of touch' will enable new advances in virtual reality
Seismic waves, commonly associated with earthquakes, have been used by scientists to develop a universal scaling law for the sense of touch. A team used Rayleigh waves to create the first scaling law for touch sensitivity. more...
Study uses mathematical modeling to identify an optimal school return approach
A new mathematical model has been developed to identify the number of days students could attend school to allow them a better learning experience while mitigating infections of COVID-19. more...
Faster COVID-19 testing with simple algebraic equations
A mathematician has developed a new method for processing large volumes of COVID-19 tests which he believes could lead to significantly more tests being performed at once and results being returned much quicker. more...
New model examines how societal influences affect U.S. political opinions
Northwestern University researchers have developed the first quantitative model that captures how politicized environments affect U.S. political opinion formation and evolution. more...
When does a second COVID-19 surge end? Look at the data
Using data from all 50 U.S. states plus the District of Columbia, two mathematicians have developed a new method to analyze COVD-19 rates to help policymakers identify demonstrable turning points in infection surges. more...
