Did social media spoil the Avengers’ Endgame movie for you? Or maybe one of the Game of Thrones books? A team of researchers from the University of California San Diego is working to make sure that doesn’t happen again. They have developed an AI-based system that can flag spoilers in online reviews of books and TV shows.

Finding Missing Network Links Could Help Develop New Drugs, Stop Disease, Ease Traffic

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

A new mathematical model of the structure of networks could help find new cancer drugs, speed up traffic flow and combat sexually transmitted disease. Although the three challenges seem diverse, they all could benefit from a theory that helps uncover information about a network by analyzing its structure. The study was published in the journal Chaos. Successful link prediction algorithms already exist for certain types of networks, but the researchers analyzed differently structured networks to come up with their alternative algorithm.
