A Magic Formula to Predict Attraction Is More Elusive Than Ever

Dating websites often claim attraction between two people can be predicted from the right combination of traits and preferences, but a new study casts doubt on that assertion. The study, which used speed dating data, found a computer could predict who is desirable and how much someone would desire others — who’s hot and who’s not — but it could not unravel the mystery of unique desire for a specific person.

New App Uses Smartphone Selfies to Screen for Pancreatic Cancer

A new app from University of Washington researchers could lead to earlier detection of pancreatic cancer -- simply by snapping a smartphone selfie. The disease kills 90 percent of patients within five years, in part because no telltale symptoms or non-invasive screening tools exist to catch a tumor before it spreads.
