Giant umbrellas shift from convenient canopy to sturdy storm shield .
In a new approach to storm surge protection, a Princeton team has created a preliminary design for dual-purpose kinetic umbrellas, which would provide shade during fair weather and could be tilted in advance of a storm to form a flood barrier. The researchers used computational modeling to begin evaluating the umbrellas’ ability to withstand an acute storm surge.
Multi-year datasets suggest projecting outcomes of people’s lives with AI isn't so simple .
The machine learning techniques scientists use to predict outcomes from large datasets may fall short when it comes to projecting the outcomes of people’s lives, according to a large-scale mass collaboration led by researchers at Princeton.
