(Carnegie Mellon University) To begin to understand the psychology of criminals' behaviors in cybersecurity and how it can be used to prevent phishing attacks, Carnegie Mellon University's Prashanth Rajivan and Cleotilde Gonzalez identified how adversaries may be more successful when they exploit specific phishing strategies than when they use other less successful ones.
Carnegie Mellon University researchers have calculated that the U.S. can meet—or even beat—the near-term carbon dioxide emission reductions required by the United Nations Paris Agreement, despite the Trump Administration's withdrawal of the Clean Power Plan (CPP).

(Carnegie Mellon University) Conversational agents such as Siri, Alexa and Cortana are great at giving you the weather, but are flummoxed when asked for unusual information, or follow-up questions. By adding humans to the loop, Carnegie Mellon University researchers have created a conversational agent that is tough to stump. Show More Summary
On January 9th, Carnegie Mellon University, supported by Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS), announced the release of the Power Sector Carbon Index's third quarter update, measuring the carbon dioxide emissions intensity from the U.S. Show More Summary
(Carnegie Mellon University) Researchers from six US universities will collaborate in the CONIX Research Center headquartered at Carnegie Mellon. For the next five years, CONIX will create the architecture for networked computing that lies between edge devices and the cloud.
(Carnegie Mellon University) Published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the model now gives researchers a tool that extends past observing static networks at a single snapshot in time, which is hugely beneficial since network data are usually dynamic.
Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have developed a new dynamic statistical model to visualize changing patterns in networks, including gene expression during developmental periods of the brain.
(Carnegie Mellon University) Today, we take it for granted that stress and disease are linked and that psychological stress, social networks and socioeconomic status impacts infections, cardiovascular disease and asthma. Much of what we know about these connections between biology and psychology is because of Carnegie Mellon University's Sheldon Cohen.
"My bet is that we're looking at things all wrong," says cosmologist Scott Dodelson, one of the lead scientists behind the new Dark Energy Survey results and chair of the Department of Physics at Carnegie Mellon University. "Someone who's eight...
(Carnegie Mellon University) Machine learning computer systems, which get better with experience, are poised to transform the economy much as steam engines and electricity have in the past. They can outperform people in a number of tasks, though they are unlikely to replace people in all jobs. Show More Summary
(Carnegie Mellon University) The $6.7 million grant is one of the largest federally funded projects of its kind. It comes at a time when, according to a 2016 Pew Research Center Study, a majority of US adults rely on social media as their primary news source.
(Nanyang Technological University) Scientists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) have found a way to direct the growth of hydrogel, a jelly-like substance, to mimic plant or animal tissue structure and shapes. Show More Summary

(Carnegie Mellon University) Researchers took advantage of a resulting federal lawsuit against a fraudulent company to test default choice architecture when the optimal choice was clear: end the subscriptions.
Between 2000 and 2007, the telemarketing firm Suntasia charged hundreds of thousands of customers an average of $239 each for essentially worthless subscriptions. Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University, Indiana University and U.S....Show More Summary

Scientists at Carnegie Mellon University have developed a new electroencephalography (EEG) system capable of recording brain signals at an unprecedented spatial resolution. The so-called “super-Nyquist density” EEG was compared to four different conventional “Nyquist density” EEGs when tried on 14 volunteers. The new system was able to record a lot more data from the visual […]
