A new algorithm that detects the deception in text-based communication

Scientists at the City, University of London (CITY UL) developed a technology that enables a fraud detection in insurance using algorithm based text analysis. This is an innovative text mining tool which supports insurance providers in identifying claims with deliberate deceiving information. This technology assists insurance providers to focus resources efficiently in investigating claims classified automatically as deceitful. Furthermore, the algorithm can be integrated into an automated scan system that scans texts/emails and assigns a probability for deceitful intentions. The default detection accuracy is of 67% which can be improved through the identification of context specific terms in a small in-house follow-up project.

New infrared technique aims to remotely detect dangerous materials

A model that precisely characterizes the material in each pixel of an image taken from a long-wave infrared camera has been developed by the researchers at Brigham Young University (BYU). The U.S. National Nuclear Security Administration funded the project through a grant awarded to BYU engineering professor Gustavious Williams. The government’s long-term goal for infrared technology is to remotely detect the exact materials, chemicals and gases coming and going from factories or other sites suspected of illegal nuclear production. The team tested their new method of analyzing infrared images with more basic materials using data taken by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

Simple and inexpensive holographic video displays

Holographic video displays, featuring three-dimensional images, are about to 'go large' and become a lot more affordable at the same time, thanks to the work of a team of Brigham Young University (BYU) researchers and their collaborators at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). It's all about manipulating light. Three of the primary methods include reflection, refraction, and diffraction. In this case, diffraction is the key, and essentially enables lines - almost any type - to bend and filter light. The team reports using surface acoustic waves as a dynamic pattern of lines to control light's angle and color composition. The magic happens on the surface of a special crystal called lithium niobate (LiNbO3), which boasts excellent optical properties.

DNA ‘origami’ could help build faster, cheaper computer chips

Electronics manufacturers constantly hunt for ways to make faster, cheaper computer chips, often by cutting production costs or by shrinking component sizes. Now, researchers at Brigham Young University (BYU) report that DNA, the genetic material of life, might help accomplish this goal when it is formed into specific shapes through a process reminiscent of the ancient art of paper folding. The most familiar form of DNA is a double helix, which consists of two single strands of DNA. Complementary bases on each strand pair up to connect the two strands, much like rungs on a twisted ladder. But to create a DNA origami structure, researchers begin with a long single strand of DNA. The strand is flexible and floppy, somewhat like a shoelace.

A novel technology allows the client to search over the encrypted data stored in the cloud

The Cloud provides clients and their remote devices the utility of on-demand resource sharing and data access. Although the resource sharing has many advantages it leads to the lack of control of the data and the data can be misused without permission. In this era of the Internet of Things (IoT), the Cloud is being used as a centralized repository for storing large amounts of data. The Cloud market is showing Compound Annual Growth Rate of 22%, however, since 2017, 2.6 Billion data records have been stolen that were stored in the Cloud. The possibility of data theft keeps clients from outsourcing their data on the Cloud and benefitting from the advantages the Cloud has to offer. This reduced security also leads to the violation of the General Data Protection Regulations. Therefore, scientists at the City, University of London (CITY UL) developed an intra-cloud scalable and lightweight solution that allows the Client to search over the encrypted data stored in the Cloud.

Vapour Screw Engine: low temperature electricity generation from heat

The design of more efficient energy recovery systems is a pressing issue at a time of rising energy costs and environmental concerns. Multiple technologies are available for recovering energy from waste heat and converting it into usable electricity. However, the lower the temperature of the heat source the more difficult is the extraction of recoverable energy. This has substantial implications, for example, 60% of waste heat losses in industrial processes are below 230 degrees Celsius. But very few commercial technologies can operate in the low-temperature range at low cost, in particular, once the temperature falls below 100 deg C. Therefore, scientists at the City, University of London (CITY UL) in partnership with Ascending Power Ltd, in which the University has a minority stake, developed a Vapour Screw Engine (VSE) that can generate electricity from heat sources below 100 degrees Celsius.
