Measuring the predictability of life outcomes with a scientific mass collaboration | PNAS - 3 views

  •  
    This is a social sciences paper trying to make use of ML. Quote from text: "Social scientists studying the life course must find a way to reconcile a widespread belief that understanding has been generated by these data-as demonstrated by more than 750 published journal articles using the Fragile Families data (10)-with the fact that the very same data could not yield accurate predictions of these important outcomes." "(...) In other words, the submissions were much better at predicting each other than at predicting the truth."

    This is the current page for ESA datalabs. Its an ongoing activity that we should monitor and join with Kelvins update if possible.

New Invention Generates Electricity "Out of Thin Air" - Offers Clean Energy 24/7 - 1 views

  •  
    Is this for real ?
  •  
    Very interesting, indeed! I wonder if it even can be beefed up. The devices produce a sustained voltage of around 0.5 volts across a 7-micrometre-thick film, with a current density of around 17 microamperes per square centimetre

    You were a bit faster than me! On top is the corresponding paper.

    I always found it likely, but only on second thought.

    Actually read the paper now and think that this is very doubtful that this could be generalised. They used predictions for football games by those betting on outcomes ...

Decreasing human body temperature in the United States since the industrial revolution ... - 1 views

    Nice paper and linked to so many other factors.... curious "The question of whether mean body temperature is changing over time is not merely a matter of idle curiosity. Human body temperature is a crude surrogate for basal metabolic rate which, in turn, has been linked to both longevity (higher metabolic rate, shorter life span) and body size (lower metabolism, greater body mass). We speculated that the differences observed in temperature between the 19th century and today are real and that the change over time provides important physiologic clues to alterations in human health and longevity since the Industrial Revolution."

    Material point method is an efficient and promising method for simulating complex stuff. Not used much in Astro, a lot in gaming, cartoons etc.... Worth having a look in comparison with SPH in simulation (for example those connected to the HERAS mission)
