Aleksandar Karadimce commented on Adapting Robot Behavior for Human--Robot Interaction
For a robot to interact with a person, they suggested a behaviour adaption system based on policy gradient reinforcement learning. By analyzing subconscious impulses, they were able to show that the robot effectively modified at least part of the learning parameters to individual preferences for 11...
Amy Case commented on The effects of Cannabis sativa L. seed (hempseed) in the ovariectomized rat model of menopause
The authors' conclusion that "These results suggest that hempseed may improve post-ovariectomy complications in rats" does not suggest anything particularly useful, as rats rarely face ovariectomies outside of a lab. Nor does their introductory statement that the need for this study is because the "...
Neil Morte commented on Ultra-processed food consumption and obesity in adolescents
A very interesting study. Can be biased due to the convenience sampling and cannot be generalized. I do wonder how results would vary with a different sampling method and how this has altered with the pandemic. Solid study that can be looked into further.
Zachery Wolfe commented on Reproducible Research with R and RStudio (3rd Edition) by Christopher Gandrud
R is very useful but very specific. I see it best used by ecologists and spatial biologists even though the scope of the software is much greater
easysteel china commented on SoK: Machine vs. machine – A systematic classification of automated machine learning-based CAPTCHA solvers
EasySteel China is a Leading China Hastelloy mix provider . We have confidence in credit and quality first. we offer in a combination of approaches including pipe fittings, bar, sheet, development joints. wire, plate, forgings, and a brief time frame later a couple. https://easysteelsh.com/project/p...
Goran Shibakovski commented on The End of History Illusion
A bit older research, but very interesting and important about addressing the issue of the inability to predict our personal change. Here is a video related to this paper www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfDvdYj0_fA
Gokhan Serin commented on The Psychological Impact of COVID-19 and Restrictive Measures in the World
One of the interesting results of the study is that among social media users, those who use 1-2 hours a day are in the low-risk category in terms of the effects of Covid-19 and restrictive measures on psychology.
David Ison commented on Debunking Seven Terrorism Myths Using Statistics
This is an intriguing look at common assumptions about terrorists and terrorism that are discussed/debunked through empirical evidence. Certainly good to have different perspectives.
Gloria Bartolo commented on DNA-munching life lurks in the ocean
Imagine what, and how much could be discovered from the genetic debris found in the ocean!
Lakshmi Nilakantan commented on Preparation and self-aggregation properties of a series of pyrene-imidazolylidene complexes of gold (I)
Reported gold(I) complexes based on pyrene imidazolylidene are interesting, given the fact that they exhibited self aggregation properties in solid state as well as in solution, confirmed by solid state structures as well as NMR spectroscopy. Straight forward synthesis and through characterization o...
Patrick Kudlacek commented on Multirelational organization of large-scale social networks in an online world
Very interesting study on networks and relationships. It will probably take me a couple more reads to completely understand but I will get there.
