Finding the Beat

There are branches of science where beakers are nonexistent and algorithms are few. For example, there’s ethnomusicology, where music is studied through the lens of anthropology, filtered through the culture that creates it. And there are professors who step out of the lecture hall, immerse themselves in research and bring in-depth expertise back to the classroom.

 Aircraft pilots approaching a runway usually cannot spot an encroaching drone, especially if it’s not moving, study finds

Aircraft pilots approaching a runway usually cannot spot an encroaching drone, especially if it’s not moving, study finds

Skilled pilots approaching a runway usually can’t see small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS) encroaching on their airspace, and they virtually never detect motionless drones, a newly published study by researchers at Oklahoma State University and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University shows.

Using data in diagnoses

Using data in diagnoses

A growing problem among hospitals across the country is “bounce back” — patients returning to the ER to be treated a second time for the same condition. Oklahoma State University data science researcher Dr. Dursun Delen collaborated this spring with an emergency room physician to study how artificial intelligence and machine learning can help solve this problem.

Judging Others

Judging Others

Why some people negatively judge those who use public assistance to buy food has more to do with how public assistance recipients feel about what they buy than more obvious considerations, according to a study co-authored by an Oklahoma State University researcher. And those biased responses often have far more impact on policy debates about welfare programs than positions driven by data.
