Can Social Media Data Be Used to Predict Threats or Identify Fake News?

Penn State College of Engineering

Conrad Tucker, associate professor of engineering design and industrial engineering, has received funding from the U.S. Air Force to investigate whether crowd-sourced data from social media can be used to not only detect threats, but also prevent catastrophic events from happening in the future.

Fingerprints of Quantum Entanglement

University of Vienna

Quantum entanglement is a key feature of a quantum computer. Yet, how can we verify that a quantum computer indeed incorporates a large-scale entanglement? Using conventional methods is hard since they require a large number of repeated measurements. Aleksandra Dimić from the University of Belgrade and Borivoje Dakić from the Austrian Academy of Sciences and the University of Vienna have developed a novel method where in many cases even a single experimental run suffices to prove the presence of entanglement. Their surprising results will be published in the online open access journal npj Quantum Information of the Nature Publishing group.

Don’t Blame Hurricanes for Most Big Storm Surges in Northeast

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

Hurricanes spawn most of the largest storm surges in the northeastern U.S., right? Wrong, according to a study by Rutgers University–New Brunswick scientists. Extratropical cyclones , including nor’easters and other non-tropical storms, generate most of the large storm surges in the Northeast, according to the study in the Journal of Applied Meteorology and Climatology. They include a freak November 1950 storm and devastating nor’easters in March 1962 and December 1992.

Birds and Primates Share Brain Cell Types Linked to Intelligence

University of Chicago Medical Center

In a new study, published this week in the journal Current Biology, scientists from UChicago show that some neurons in bird brains form the same kind of circuitry and have the same molecular signature as cells that enable connectivity between different areas of the mammalian neocortex.

Physics Data Processing on NERSC Supercomputer Dramatically Cuts Reconstruction Time

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

In a recent demonstration project, physicists from Brookhaven National Laboratory and Berkeley Lab used the Cori supercomputer at the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center to reconstruct data collected from a nuclear physics experiment, an advance that could dramatically reduce the time it takes to make detailed data available for scientific discoveries.

OU Researcher Uses Geometry for Affairs of the Heart

University of Oklahoma, Gallogly College of Engineering

An OU researcher's recent work is focused on a predictive surgery for a serious heart condition called Functional Tricuspid Regurgitation, which affects approximately 1.6 million Americans. The team uses to clinical image data, such as functional magnetic resonance imaging, and clinical computed tomography, to reconstruct a 3D computational model of the heart, guiding surgeons on the best approach to repair FTR in a particular patient and reducing the risk of reoccurrence.
