This Sentence is Wrong
The great Viennese logician Kurt Gödel studied statements which refer to themselves - and his results shook the foundations of mathematics. "All Cretans are liars", said Epimenides, a Cretan. But this means that his statement must be a lie too. But then it is false that Cretans are liars and the statement must be true.

Birds evolve ’signature’ patterns to distinguish cuckoo eggs from their own
Using new 'pattern recognition algorithm,' latest research highlights how birds are 'fighting back' against the parasitic Common Cuckoo in what scientists describe as an evolutionary 'arms race'. They found that birds with the most sophisticated and distinctive egg patterning are those most intensely targeted by the cuckoo's egg mimicry.

Your Computer is Stupid
The field of artificial intelligence is progressing. TU Vienna is a major center of this line of research. Several conferences on this topic will be held during the "Vienna Summer of Logic". The ball does not fit into the suitcase, because it is too small. What is too small? The ball or the suitcase? For humans the answer is evident, but computers still cannot handle such simple questions.

Study to explore whether mobile phones affect children's cognitive development
Study to explore whether mobile phones affect children’s cognitive development
A study launching today will investigate whether the use of mobile phones and wireless technologies might affect children's cognitive development. The Study of Cognition, Adolescents and Mobile Phones (SCAMP) is the largest study in the world to address this issue. It will focus on cognitive functions such as memory and attention, which continue to develop into adolescence.

World trade dominated by
World trade dominated by "broker" countries, according to research
Computer scientists have shown how Germany uses its power to dominate trade between smaller countries in the European Union, using a new method. The team from Imperial College London have designed a new computational model to investigate how networks work. They have demonstrated its potential by using data from the World Trade Organisation and the United Nations COMTRADE database to analyse the complex trading networks between countries.

Schleimige Computer: Künstlerisch-wissenschaftliche Studie zu Schleimpilz-Forschung
Der Computer der Zukunft könnte um einiges schleimiger sein als die Silizium-Geräte, mit denen wir es heutzutage zu tun haben. Genau damit befasst sich die Studie, die Theresa Schubert (Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, Professur Gestaltung medialer Umgebungen) und Andrew Adamatzky (University of the West of England, Bristol) in dem renommierten Journal 'Materials Today' veröffentlicht haben.

Only one fifth of people with hearing problems wear a hearing aid
18 Mar 2014 Just a fifth of people with hearing problems wear a hearing aid, a study by The University of Manchester has found. The study, published in the journal Ear and Hearing, looked at the habits of 160,000 people in the UK aged 40 to 69 years. It found 10.7 per cent of adults had significant hearing problems when listening to speech in the presence of background noise - but only 2.1 per cent used a hearing aid.

Surgery better for most men with localised prostate cancer
Surgery offers better survival rates for most men with localised prostate cancer than radiotherapy, according to one of the largest studies of its type. The study, led by an Oxford University researcher, found that surgery as the first-line treatment offered greatest benefits for younger men in good general health.

Wifi virus latest threat to future IT security
The researchers found the virus was able to avoid detection and identify the points at which WiFi access is least protected by encryption and passwords Researchers at the University of Liverpool have shown for the first time that WiFi networks can be infected with a virus that can move through densely populated areas as efficiently as the common cold spreads between humans.

Facebook tells the computer who you love
Even if you're not shouting it from the housetops, there's a good chance the structure of your Facebook neighborhood will identify your romantic partner. From a map of Facebook friends, a computer algorithm developed by Jon Kleinberg, the Tisch University Professor of Computer Science, and Lars Backstrom '04, Ph.D.

Maybe robots should, like, hedge a little
Maybe robots should, like, hedge a little
Before long, robots will be giving us helpful advice, but we don't want them to be snippy about it. Research at Cornell and Carnegie Mellon universities suggests that if they sound a little less sure of themselves and throw in a few of the meaningless words humans are fond of, listeners will have a more positive response.

Practice makes perfect if you have a partner’s touch, according to new study
People improve their performance more when they practise with a partner rather than on their own, according to a new study. The research could ultimately help people rehabilitating from a stroke. Scientists from Imperial College London and two Japanese institutions explored whether physical interaction improved the way people performed in a computer-based task where they were using a joystick-like device.

Literary mood reflects the economic mood of past 10 years, study finds
The frequency of words expressing misery and unhappiness in books reflects the economic conditions in the 10 years prior to the work's composition, according to researchers in Bristol and London. The study, published today in PLOS ONE, found a strong correlation over most of the 20th century between a 'literary misery index' reflecting mood in English language books and a moving average of the previous decade of the annual US economic misery index (the sum of inflation and unemployment rates).

Assessing Others: Evaluating the Expertise of Humans and Computer Algorithms
How do we come to recognize expertise in another person and integrate new information with our prior assessments of that person's ability? The brain mechanisms underlying these sorts of evaluations-which are relevant to how we make decisions ranging from whom to hire, whom to marry, and whom to elect to Congress-are the subject of a new study by a team of neuroscientists at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech).

Telecommunications data show civic dividing lines in major countries
New study uses network data to show communication patterns and divisions in many major nations. Many residents of Britain, Italy, and Belgium imagine there to be a kind of north-south divide in their countries, marking a barrier between different social groups and regional characteristics. Now a new study by MIT researchers reveals that such divides can be seen in the patterns of communication in those countries and others.

Researchers turn to machines to identify breast cancer type
Team from University of Alberta and Alberta Health Services develop new technique to determine if tumours fed by estrogen. University of Alberta researchers John Mackey (left) and Russ Greiner have developed a computer algorithm that predicts whether breast cancer cells are fuelled by estrogen, a technique that could one day replace traditional testing in a clinical lab.
