Robot mom would beat robot butler in popularity contest
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa - If you tickle a robot, it may not laugh, but you may still consider it humanlike - depending on its role in your life, reports an international group of researchers. Designers and engineers assign robots specific roles, such as servant, caregiver, assistant or playmate. Researchers found that people expressed more positive feelings toward a robot that would take care of them than toward a robot that needed care.

Timing of tweets is clue to authenticity of tweeters
Timing of tweets is clue to authenticity of tweeters
Scientists determine the difference between human tweeters, those managed by groups of people and automated Twitter accounts based on tweet timings. The researchers, from Imperial College London, found that they could easily tell if humans were responsible for tweets, irrespective of their content, based on when the user's tweet was posted.

What makes people click?
A new study has analysed tens of thousands of articles available to readers of online news and created a model to find out 'what makes people click'. The researchers developed a model of "news appeal" based on the words contained in an article's title and text intro, which is what a reader uses when they choose to click on a story.

Interactive public displays not being used to full potential, says research
Interactive public information displays and wallflowers have something in common, according to University of Sydney information technologies researchers: they simply sit around hoping someone will notice them. The need for Interactive Public Information Displays (PIDs) to overcome a number of challenges will be reported this week at the International Symposium on Pervasive Displays in Mountain View, California.

Catching graphene butterflies
Catching graphene butterflies
16 May 2013 Wonder material graphene, when combined with other graphene-like materials, paves the way for vast new areas of scientific discovery and previously unheard-of applications, University of Manchester researchers have revealed. Writing in Nature , a large international team led Dr Roman Gorbachev from The University of Manchester shows that, when graphene placed on top of insulating boron nitride, or 'white graphene', the electronic properties of graphene change dramatically revealing a pattern resembling a butterfly.

New QResearch tool to improve stroke treatment
University of Nottingham researchers have developed a new predictive tool to help GPs identify and treat patients at risk of stroke. The QStroke algorithm has been shown to be better at predicting risk of primary stroke than current methods among those with atrial fibrillation who may need anticoagulants.

Treating the virtual patient
Treating the virtual patient
Researchers at Cardiff and Bristol Universities will today (Friday 19 April) show how ground-breaking ultra high definition (UHD) technology is making a real difference in remote medical training and diagnosis, with 3D demonstrations on a 'virtual patient'. Already used by trainee radiographers at Cardiff University, UHD technology, using the UK's research and education high-speed data network Janet , has the potential to revolutionise the way medical training is conducted.

Puzzle of how spiral galaxies get their arms comes into focus
As the shapes of galaxies go, the spiral disk — with its characteristic pinwheel profile — is by far the most pedestrian. This image and the video animation below show a simulation of arm formation in spiral galaxies. The simulation was performed by UW-Madison astrophysicist Elena D'Onghia, who led new research in the area along with Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics colleagues Mark Vogelsberger and Lars Hernquist.
