TechAndComputer (June 8, 2011) — When the current financial crisis hit, the failure of traditional economic doctrines to provide any sort of early warning shocked not only financial experts worldwide, but also governments and the general public, and we all began to question the effectiveness and validity of those doctrines.

A research team based in Israel decided to investigate what went awry, searching for order in an apparently random system....

Mathematical models provide insights into cholera vaccination strategies for Zimbabwe

  • PDF
TechAndComputer (June 3, 2011) — Mathematical models analyzing how a cholera outbreak spread in Zimbabwe are providing new insights into the most effective vaccination strategies for preventing future cholera epidemics, according to University of Florida researchers.

The mathematical models employed to analyze a large cholera outbreak in Zimbabwe in 2008-2009 suggest that mass vaccinations deployed strategically could prevent future cholera...

New procedure to make brain surgery safer

  • PDF
TechAndComputer (May 27, 2011) — To increase patient safety in clinical practice and minimize risks and damage that may arise during surgery, computer support and digital medical imaging are key technologies. Before brain operations, neurosurgeons can now evaluate patient-specific surgical risks, achieve increased safety, and avoid unacceptable risks.

Brain interventions must be planned so that the neurosurgeon can access and remove the tumor...

Which technologies get better faster?

  • PDF
TechAndComputer (May 17, 2011) — Some forms of technology -- think, for example, of computer chips -- are on a fast track to constant improvements, while others evolve much more slowly. Now, a new study by researchers at MIT and other institutions shows that it may be possible to predict which technologies are likeliest to advance rapidly, and therefore may be worth more investment in research and resources.

In a nutshell, the researchers found...

Diagnosing 'seizures' in the US economy

  • PDF
TechAndComputer (May 13, 2011) — Since 2008, the U.S. economy has been "seizing" uncontrollably. Now a Tel Aviv University researcher says that a comparison of the multifaceted economic downturn with the uncontrolled spasms of an epileptic is not inappropriate -- and may say something about the origins of the disaster.

In a recent article published in the journal PLoS ONE, Prof. Eshel Ben-Jacob of Tel Aviv University's School of Physics and...
