Crowdsourcing with mobile apps brings 'big data' to psychological research

A fast-paced game app where players pretend they are baggage screening officers operating airport x-ray scanners has provided researchers with billions of pieces of data in record time, according to an article published by the American Psychological Association.

Musical Ages: How Our Taste in Music Changes Over a Lifetime

The explosion in music consumption over the last century has made 'what you listen to' an important personality construct as well as the root of many social and cultural tribes -- and, for many people, their self-perception is closely associated with musical preference. We would perhaps be reluctant to admit that our taste in music alters -- softens even -- as we get older.

(ScienceDaily) Popcorn at the Movies: Oral Interference Sabotages Advertising Effects

Oct. 11, 2013 — Advertising uses repetition to increase consumers' preference for brands. Initially, novel brands gain in popularity due to repetition, which increases the likelihood that consumers later buy the brands. Particularly for novel brands, excessive exposure and repetition is necessary to establish the brand name in the first place. Remember your initial irritation upon encountering the names YAHOO, GOOGLE and WIKIPEDIA for the first time; now they are imprinted in your brain.

Show me your FB page and I will tell you how smart you are

(Science Daily) Ben-Gurion University of the Negev's (BGU) Social Networks Security Research Group in its Department of Information Systems Engineering has developed a novel method to predict how well or badly a student will perform in an academic course.

Now the Mobile Phone Goes Emotional

(Science Daily) ForcePhone is a mobile synchronous haptic communication system. During phone calls, users can squeeze the side of the device and the pressure level is mapped to vibrations on the recipient?s device. Computer scientists from University of Helsinki indicate that an additional haptic channel of communication can be integrated into mobile phone calls using a pressure to vibrotactile mapping with local and remote feedback. The pressure/vibrotactile messages supported by ForcePhone are called pressages.

Endless Original Music: Computer Program Creates Music Based On Emotions

(Science Daily) A group of researchers from the University of Granada (UGR) has developed Inmamusys, a software programme that can create music in response to emotions that arise in the listener. By using Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques, the programme means that original, copyright-free and emotion-inspiring music can be played continuously.

Even as grown-ups, we need those, “Look what I did!” moments.

(Psychology Today) I don’t know about you, but as a kid I loved playing with Legos. I never distinguished myself as a budding architect, and in those days, the suite of Lego building solutions wasn’t nearly as extensive as it is today. But I wiled away many a contented hour snapping those little bits and pieces together. I think I could probably get a reasonable house-like object together. On a good day, I suppose a somewhat personish thingy was not out of the question. I don’t really remember exactly what I made. I remember the rich colors.

Your Senses are your raw information learning

Quickly, name your five senses.

That’s easy! Right?

Sight, smell, hearing, touch and taste.
Now, what percentage of information comes though each sense?
That one is not so easy.

Here’s another way to think about this. How much information do we gather from each sense in the same amount of time as compared to the other senses? For the moment, assume that each of your senses works perfectly.
