    • Interrogating the Role of Belief in Technology Design and Use 

      Brock, André L. (2020-10-26)
      While STEM fields possess the capacity to analyze the technical and organizational properties of digital interfaces, services, and their associated user practices, they are underequipped to evaluate or interrogate the ...
    • Understanding Human Functioning & Enhancing Human Potential through Computational Methods 

      D'Mello, Sidney K. (2020-10-08)
      It is generally accepted that computational methods can complement traditional approaches to understanding human functioning, including thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and social interactions. I suggest that their utility ...
    • Superconductivity: There's Plenty of Cream at the Bottom 

      Hirschfeld, Peter J. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2020-10-19)
      In 1961, Brian Pippard gave a speech at IBM called "The Cat and the Cream", in which he declared that the superconductivity field was finished, at least for "young innocents who wish to break new ground": the cream was ...
    • Flexible Learning and Decision Making in a Changing World 

      Soltani, Alireza (2020-10-19)
      Survival requires proper association of reward outcomes to choices and actions that precede them. To learn successfully, however, the brain must constantly adjust how it incorporates each reward feedback because the ...
