New algorithm provides better predictions of individual preferences

Marta Sales-Pardo and Roger Guimer√†, researchers at the URV’s Department of Chemical Engineering. Credit: ¬©URV A collaborative of researchers has developed a filtering model with an associated scalable algorithm that makes accurate predictions of individuals’ preferences. The new approach is based on the explicit assumption that there are groups of individuals and of items, and…

New math tools for new materials

University of Utah mathematician Graeme Milton presents a new tool for understanding how energy waves move through complex materials, opening up possibilities to design materials that absorb or bend energy as desired. His solution for so-called “analytic materials” was published November 15 in Proceedings of the Royal Society A. Scientists have long known that the…
