Formula that can ID music industry payola developed

TechAndComputer (Dec. 16, 2009) — A University at Buffalo researcher has invented a statistical method that can detect payola-like corruption in the music industry, a system that gives law enforcement an inexpensive statistical guide to identify potential music corruption and to better target more traditional and much more costly hands-on evidence-gathering.

The statistical formula, developed by Ming Ming Chiu, PhD, professor learning and...

Visual assistance for cosmic blind spots

TechAndComputer (Nov. 24, 2009) — A bit of imagination on the part of a measuring instrument wouldn’t be a bad thing. It could help to add data from areas where the instrument is unable to measure. However, it must do so constructively. In order to infer missing data in an astronomical measurement with more than just imagination, physicists at the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics have formulated a theory of spatial perception called in...
