Budget-split testing: A trustworthy and powerful approach to marketplace A/B testing

Co-authors: Min Liu, Vangelis Dimopoulos, Elise Georis, Jialiang Mao, Di Luo, and Kang Kang The LinkedIn ecosystem drives member and customer value through a series of marketplaces (e.g., the ads marketplace, the talent marketplace, etc.). We maximize that value by making data-informed product decisions via A/B testing. Traditional A/B tests on our marketplaces, however, are often statistically biased and under-powered. To mitigate this, we developed “budget-split” testing, which provides more trustworthy and powerful marketplace A/B testing. Read on to learn…

From Mizzou to Mars: Engineering Alumnus Works on Mars Ascent Vehicle

A Mizzou Engineer’s digital fingerprints will be on the Mars Ascent Vehicle when it makes its historic voyage to the Red Planet in 2026. Christopher Whetsel ’19, works at NASA and has been involved in the program both on the software engineering and project management side. “It’s part of the Mars Sample Return Program and aims to take samples of Martian dirt and return them to earth so they can be studied in labs here,” he said. “We can send…

Hematopoietic stem cell transplants may provide long-term benefit for people with MS — ScienceDaily

A new study shows that intense immunosuppression followed by a hematopoietic stem cell transplant may prevent disability associated with multiple sclerosis (MS) from getting worse in 71% of people with relapsing-remitting MS for up to 10 years after the treatment. The research is published in the January 20, 2021, online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology. The study also found that in some people their disability improved over 10 years after treatment. Additionally, more…

Squid-inspired robot swims with nature’s most efficient marine animals

The squid-inspired pulse-jetting robotic swimmer. Credit: Bujard et al., Sci. Robot. 6, eabd2971 (2021) Scientists at the University of Southampton and University of Edinburgh have developed a flexible underwater robot that can propel itself through water in the same style as nature’s most efficient swimmer—the Aurelia aurita jellyfish. The findings, published in Science Robotics, demonstrate that the new underwater robot can swim as quickly and efficiently as the squid and jellyfish which inspired its design, potentially unlocking new possibilities for…

IDEA! Conference Seeks Industry Experts as Speakers

From automotive and motorsports to aerospace, additive manufacturing (AM) has allowed fluid dynamics to go beyond what has been achievable using conventional manufacturing processes. AM enables engineers to produce optimized designs and create fluid flow systems that are superior in terms of performance, efficiency and reliability. In an upcoming Machine Design webinar on Jan. 21, Antonio Pellegrino, project leader of the LHCb Experiment at CERN, and Thomas Verelst, 3D Systems applications engineer, will discuss how AM is enabling advancements in…

Fatty acid may help combat multiple sclerosis, study finds — ScienceDaily

The abnormal immune system response that causes multiple sclerosis (MS) by attacking and damaging the central nervous system can be triggered by the lack of a specific fatty acid in fat tissue, according to a new Yale study. The finding suggests that dietary change might help treat some people with the autoimmune disease. The study was published Jan. 19 in The Journal of Clinical Investigation. Fat tissue in patients diagnosed with MS lack normal levels of oleic acid, a monounsaturated…
