'Wearable Technology' Curriculum Aims to Fuel Interest in STEM

Researchers at the University of Nebraska Omaha (UNO) and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) are developing a curriculum that will enable all students to learn the science behind "wearable technology." The three-year project, backed by a U.S. National Science Foundation grant, will include inquiry-based activities to about 900 students in grades 4-6 who attend public school in Nebraska. Participating students will receive kits featuring conductive thread, light-emitting diode (LED) lights, sensors, and other components commonly found in high-tech clothing. The students also will wor...

UC Berkeley Research Center Aims to Develop Second Generation of Surgical Robots

The New York Times

University of California (UC), Berkeley scientists are establishing the Center for Automation and Learning for Medical Robots, a research center intended to help develop medical robots that can perform low-level and repetitive surgical tasks, enabling human doctors to concentrate on the most challenging and complex aspects of operations. "Our goal is to help surgeons focus on the critical aspects of surgery, rather than having to perform each tedious and repetitive subtask," says UC Berkeley professor Ken Goldberg. In May, the researchers presented a ...

New 'Surveyman' Software Promises to Revolutionize Survey Design and Accuracy

University of Massachusetts Amherst

The Object-oriented Programming, Systems, Languages and Applications (OOPSLA) track of the ACM SIGPLAN conference on Systems, Programming, Languages and Applications: Software for Humanity recently honored University of Massachusetts at Amherst doctoral student Emma Tosch with its Best Paper award. The recognition came for her work on a first-of-its-kind software system designed to improve the accuracy and trustworthiness of surveys. A free and publicly available tool, "Surveyman" can identify problems in any survey from the design st...

Indiana University Adds Data Science Master's Degree to Keep Pace with Growing Big Data Job Demands

The Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing has announced a new master’s degree in the rapidly expanding field of data science. The inaugural class of students will begin the program in January. The new degree program capitalizes on the existing breadth of research and study at the school, with courses coming from computer science, informatics, information science, library science and statistics. There are two paths through the degree -- a technical path and a decision-maker path -- allowing students to easily customize the program to meet their professional goals. To rea...

Data Mining Reveals How News Coverage Varies Around the World

Technology Review

Qatar Computing Research Institute researchers Haewoon Kwak and Jisun An analyzed news agendas in different parts of the world to see how the coverage reflects actual international events. They developed a cartogram by forming a database of 195,000 disasters occurring between April 2013 and July 2014. The disasters were reported by more than 10,000 news outlets, and Kwak and An noted the countries in which each news outlet was based and counted the published stories from other parts of the world. They then created a map of the world showing where the n...
