Study of exercise habits of 117,000 people over 26 years assesses risk factors — ScienceDaily

Physical activity, including walking and muscle-strengthening activities, were associated with significantly reduced risk of cirrhosis-related death, according to research presented at Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) 2019. Chronic liver disease is increasing, partly due to the obesity epidemic, and currently there are no guidelines for the optimal type of exercise for the prevention of cirrhosis-related mortality. Researchers hope these findings will help provide specific exercise recommendations for patients at risk for cirrhosis and its complications. “The benefit of exercise is not…

Deep learning models for dynamic recommendations and inferring user interests

by Aditya Pal and Pong Eksombatchai | Applied Science As we build a visual discovery engine, it’s crucial to understand user intent and serve relevant content through recommender systems that constantly learn from a cross-section of data to dynamically predict the next idea a Pinner will love. However, we found existing approaches to be limited by lack of speed and memory consumption and to not incorporate cross-session information. Additionally, a key challenge is that user interests dynamically shift and evolve…

Visualizing Traffic Safety with Uber Movement Data and Kepler.gl

Urban traffic can be dangerous, a point known all too well by city dwellers and drivers. Discovering the most dangerous street locations in a city can help urban planners take steps to enhance safety through strategies such as lower speed limits or traffic rerouting. Among its many uses, data visualization delivers the insights urban planners can use to better manage traffic in cities. To demonstrate this power of data visualization, we offer a use case showing the most dangerous traffic…

Commencement speaker’s Mizzou Engineering ties run deep

Craig Lalumandier (BS EE ’89) and his wife, Cheryl, have been football season ticket holders for over 25 years and funded an endowment honoring Cheryl’s father, Alfred Horn. If there were a competition for Mr. Mizzou among alumni, Craig Lalumandier would have to be on a shortlist of finalists. Consider: He earned bachelor’s degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering from MU in 1989. He helped reinvigorate the Mizzou Alumni Association’s St. Louis Chapter and became president of the national…

Faster script loading with BinaryAST?

JavaScript Cold starts The performance of applications on the web platform is becoming increasingly bottlenecked by the startup (load) time. Large amounts of JavaScript code are required to create rich web experiences that we’ve become used to. When we look at the total size of JavaScript requested on mobile devices from HTTPArchive, we see that an average page loads 350KB of JavaScript, while 10% of pages go over the 1MB threshold. The rise of more complex applications can push these…

Scaling Accessibility through LinkedIn Engineering’s A11y Champions Program

Today, more than one billion people have some form of disability—approximately 15% of the world’s population. Here at LinkedIn, we have the unique potential to create opportunity for every member of the global workforce, which means that we must work to ensure that every member has access to the information on our platform and the opportunities it presents. This is no easy feat; accessibility (a11y) is a journey, and we work each day to get closer to our end goal.…

Credit: Herman Zonderland/Media Centrum Defensie Peacekeeping missions often take place at remote locations, requiring the army to have a large supply of spare parts on site to keep everything running. Dutch researcher Bram Westerweel comes to the conclusion that taking a 3-D printer on a mission to print parts can save hundreds of thousands of euros and, at the same time, reduce the downtime of defense equipment. The savings…
