Clickbait Secrets Exposed! Humans and AI team up to improve clickbait detection

Penn State Institute for CyberScience

Humans and machines worked together to help train an artificial intelligence -- AI -- model that outperformed other clickbait detectors, according to researchers. In addition, the new AI-based solution was also able to tell the difference between clickbait headlines that were generated by machines -- or bots -- and ones written by people.

Chipping Away at How Ice Forms Could Keep Windshields, Power Lines Ice-Free

American Chemical Society (ACS)

How does ice form? Surprisingly, science hasn’t fully answered that question. Differences in ice formation on various surfaces still aren’t well understood, but researchers today will explain their finding that the arrangements that surface atoms impose on water molecules are the key.
