    Study uncovers how echo chambers provide the initial fuel for misinformation to go viral

    New research sheds light on how the structure of online social networks causes misinformation to go viral on the internet. The findings, published in PLOS One, indicate that social “echo chambers” act like kindling that gives misinformation the initial flare up it needs to quickly spread. “While the link between ‘echo chambers’ and ‘fake news’ has been both widely discussed and been the subject of significant research effort, this discussion has largely left out the impact of the c...

    'The world is against them': new era of cancer lawsuits threaten Monsanto

    Dean Brooks grasped on to the shopping cart, suddenly unable to stand or breathe. Later, at a California emergency room, a nurse with teary eyes delivered the news, telling his wife, Deborah, to hold out hope for a miracle. It was December 2015 when they learned that a blood cancer called non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) was rapidly attacking the man’s body and immune system. By July 2016, Dean was dead.

    Lack of Sleep Is Associated with Risky Behavior among Teens

    Sleep is so very important—this is not news. But for the majority of us, getting enough of it is hard. The consequences of not getting enough shut eye can be as minor as feeling a little drowsy the next morning at work or as serious as chronic diseases like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and depression. And now, a new study from the researchers at Brigham and Women’s shows that teens who do not get enough sleep are more likely to engage in risky behaviors including smoking, drinking alcoh...

    Facebook, Google agree to tackle fake news: EU

    Facebook (FB.O), Google (GOOGL.O) and other tech firms have agreed a code of conduct to do more to tackle the spread of fake news, due to concerns it can influence elections, the European Commission said on Wednesday. Intended to stave off more heavy-handed legislation, the voluntary code covers closer scrutiny of advertising on accounts and websites where fake news appears, and working with fact checkers to filter it out, the Commission said.

    Glacial engineering could limit sea-level rise, if we get our emissions under control

    Targeted engineering projects to hold off glacier melting could slow down the collapse of ice sheets and limit sea-level rise, according to a new study published in the European Geosciences Union journal The Cryosphere. While an intervention similar in size to existing large civil engineering projects could only have a 30% chance of success, a larger project would have better odds of holding off ice-sheet collapse. But study authors Michael Wolovick and John Moore caution that reducing emissions...

    Further Evidence That the Tax Cuts Have Not Led to Widespread Bonuses, Wage or Compensation Growth

    The bottom line is that there has been very little increase in private sector compensation or W-2 wages since the end of 2017.. One of the leading arguments for the GOP’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 has been that it will raise the wages of rank-and-file workers, with congressional Republicans and members of the Trump administration promising raises of many thousands of dollars within ten years. The Trump administration’s chair of the Council of Economic Advisers argued in April that we are...

    Lib Dem call for £100bn 'citizen's fund'

    A £100bn "citizens fund" should be created to spread the UK's wealth more evenly, the Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince Cable is proposing. He will tell the party's conference it could be built up through taxes on the richest and the sale of assets, such as the UK stake in Royal Bank of Scotland. Sir Vince will say it is a "disgrace" taxpayers are yet to be repaid for the RBS bail-out in the financial crisis.

    Nvidia unveils Tesla T4 chip for faster AI inference in datacenters

    Nvidia today debuted the Tesla T4 graphics processing unit (GPU) chip to speed up inference from deep learning systems in datacenters. The T4 GPU is packed with 2,560 CUDA cores and 320 Tensor cores with the power to process queries nearly 40 times faster than a CPU. Inference is the process of deploying trained AI models to power the intelligence imbued in services like visual search engines, video analysis tools, or questions to an AI assistant like Alexa or Siri.
