( Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) The Center for Financial Studies in the Lally School of Management at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute will host a one-day workshop titled Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Financial Services. The workshop will take place on April 27 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies Auditorium on campus.

New testing of model improves confidence in the performance of ITER

( DOE/Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory) Article describes production of multiscale turbulence in fusion plasmas through heating of ions and electrons.

Researchers illuminate the path to a new era of microelectronics

( Boston University College of Engineering) A new microchip technology capable of optically transferring data could solve a severe bottleneck in current devices by speeding data transfer and reducing energy consumption by orders of magnitude, according to an article published in the April 19, 2018 issue of Nature.

How social networking sites may discriminate against women

( Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science) Using the photo-sharing site Instagram as a test case, Columbia researchers demonstrate how two common recommendation algorithms amplify a network effect known as homophily in which similar or like-minded people cluster together. They further show how algorithms turned loose on a network with homophily effectively make women less visible; they found that the women in their dataset, whose photos were slightly less likely to be 'liked' or commented on, became even less popular once recommendation algorithms were introduced.

Wayne State professor earns NSF CAREER award to improve wireless wearable biosensors

( Wayne State University - Office of the Vice President for Research) A professor from Wayne State University's College of Engineering, recently received a National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award, the organization's most prestigious accolade for up-and-coming researchers in science and engineering.The five-year, $500,000 project is, "Integrated Research and Education on Self-Activated, Transparent Harmonics-Based Wireless Sensing Systems Using Graphene Bioelectronics."

European fish and canoes bump into barriers almost every kilometer

( Swansea University) Now, for the first time, scientists are inviting citizens to help in updating information about European river barriers with a newly-developed smartphone app.

Improving citizen science and big data analysis

( University of Massachusetts at Amherst) Computer science researcher Daniel Sheldon at the University of Massachusetts Amherst has been awarded a five-year, $550,000 faculty early career development (CAREER) grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to design and test new mathematical approaches and algorithms to help ecologists and other scientists better use large data sets generated by citizen science projects, animal tracking devices and earth observation instruments, among other goals.

Wood formation model to fuel progress in bioenergy, paper, new applications

( North Carolina State University) Need stronger timber, better biofuels or new sources of green chemicals? A systems biology model developed over decades of research led by NC State University will accelerate progress in engineering trees for specific needs.

Graphene sets a new record on squeezing light to one atom

( Graphene Flagship) Graphene Flagship researchers reach the ultimate level of light confinement -- the space of one atom. This will pave the way to ultra-small optical switches, detectors and sensors.

Researchers awarded £908,000 to develop self-powered Internet of Things devices

( Swansea University) Scientists and engineers at Swansea University have been awarded a research grant by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) that will see them explore highly novel forms of physical photovoltaic (PV) tiles that can be placed on buildings, objects and even clothes.
