Waiting to be sold: IUPUI researchers develop model to predict probability of home sales

INDIANAPOLIS -- "We went to the websites that homebuyers and sellers visit  -- trulia.com, zillow.com and redfin.com," said Mohammad Al Hasan, associate professor of computer and information science, who led the house-selling probability study. "There was a lot of information to help in the decision-making process for both buyers and sellers, but what was missing was the answer to 'how long does it take for a house to be sold after it first appears in the listing?'"

Importancia de STEM en el mundo actual

Tengo edad suficiente para haber estado involucrado en la determinación de la secuencia de los genes en el genoma humano. Recuerdo que estaba en el laboratorio a altas horas de la noche leyendo la decencia de un gen recientemente descubierto que controla el crecimiento humano y pensado que yo podía ser la primera persona en la historia de leer esa secuencia. ¡ No estoy seguro de si eso era  correcta, pero fue muy emocionante! 

Computer trained to predict which AML patients will go into remission, which will relapse

INDIANAPOLIS -- "It's pretty straightforward to teach a computer to recognize AML, once you develop a robust algorithm, and in previous work we did it with almost 100 percent accuracy," said Murat Dundar, senior author of the disease-progression study and associate professor of computer science in the School of Science at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis.
