When disaster strikes, emergency responders often use social media data to understand the big-picture impact of an event. But thanks to an international team of researchers, organizations could soon have access to real-time, automatically generated summaries of the collateral impact of a disaster based on crowdsourced Twitter data.
Breakthrough” algorithm exponentially faster than any previous one
What if a large class of algorithms used today — from the algorithms that help us avoid traffic to the algorithms that identify new drug molecules — worked exponentially faster?
Computer scientists at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have developed a completely new kind of algorithm, one that exponentially speeds up computation by dramatically reducing the number of parallel steps required to reach a solution.
The theoretical research was presented at the ACM Symposium on Theory of Computing (STOC), June 25-29 and the experimental research will be presented at the International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML), July 10 -15.
Three students from Moscow State University earn the title of 2018 ACM ICPC World Champions.
University Teams from Beijing and Tokyo also Recognized with Gold Medals
NEW YORK, April 19, 2018 – The 2018 World Finals of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) culminated today at Peking University in Beijing, China. Three students from Moscow State University earned the title of 2018 World Champions. Teams from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Peking University and The University of Tokyo placed in second, third and fourth places and were recognized with gold medals in the prestigious competition.
New study suggests good research pushed through social media gets more citations.
By JENNIFER-ANNE PASCOE
Analyzing the famous academic aphorism ”publish or perish” through a modern digital lens, a group of emerging ecologists and conservation scientists wanted to see whether communicating their new research discoveries through social media—primarily Twitter—eventually leads to higher citations years down the road.
Turns out, the tweets are worth the time investment.
Some of the apps in question included Disney’s “Where’s My Water?” Gameloft’s “Minion Rush” and Duolingo, the language learning app.
We analyzed 100 million images online to find which brand was pictured the most.
25 Things We Learned Analyzing Billions of Tweets
6,000 Tweets are posted every second. That’s 6,000 views, opinions, ideas, complaints, stories, compliments. It’s live human thought. And we can use it to try and answer any question.
A global median of 75% want their news media to be unbiased when covering political issues, yet many say the news media do a poor job of reporting on political issues fairly.
|Political issues fairly||News about govt. leaders
|News accurately||Most important news events|
Βαριά πρόστιμα, σχεδόν εξοντωτικά, ειδικά για τις μεγάλες επιχειρήσεις, φέρνει ο νέος ευρωπαϊκός κανονισμός, που θα ισχύσει αυτόματα και στη χώρα μας από τον προσεχή Μάιο και αφορά το νέο θεσμικό πλαίσιο για την προστασία των προσωπικών δεδομένων.
