Dogs, Like People, Tend to Stay Away from 'Nasty' People Who 'Behave Negatively': Study
A new study shows that dogs are more likely to avoid people exhibiting unhelpful behavior towards their owners
Dogs really are man’s best friend.
Researchers from Japan’s Kyoto University have found that dogs “are extremely sensitive to social signals from humans,” and quickly learn to “stop trusting” people who “behave negatively” towards their owners.
As part of the study, researchers divided 54 dogs into three different groups, with each group participating in a slightly different variation of the same interaction.
Psychologist who played a key role in opposing LGBT lessons in schools is to be investigated over links to material calling for gay people to be 'lashed and killed'
A psychologist, who has continuously opposed LGBT lessons in schools, is to be investigated over her opposition to homosexuality.
Dr Kate Godfrey-Faussett, who is a lead figure in the Stop RSE campaign and converted to Islam 25 years ago, is now under investigation by the Health and Care Professions Council over her views, The Guardian has reported.
An investigation carried by the Observer earlier this year found that the National Secular Society (NSS) had written to the Health and Care Professions Council, the governing body for Godfrey-Faussett's profession, over whether her role is compatible with the ethical standards of her professional body.
In a letter seen by the paper, dated on February 18, the NSS warned that the campaign group had 'promoted material which says the punishment for homosexuality is death.'
AI can predict when someone will die with unsettling accuracy
Medical researchers have unlocked an unsettling ability in artificial intelligence (AI): predicting a person's early death.
Scientists recently trained an AI system to evaluate a decade of general health data submitted by more than half a million people in the United Kingdom. Then, they tasked the AI with predicting if individuals were at risk of dying prematurely — in other words, sooner than the average life expectancy — from chronic disease, they reported in a new study.
The predictions of early death that were made by AI algorithms were "significantly more accurate" than predictions delivered by a model that did not use machine learning, lead study author Dr. Stephen Weng, an assistant professor of epidemiology and data science at the University of Nottingham (UN) in the U.K., said in a statement.

Dogs Will Actually Lie to Get What They Want
Just look into a dog’s furry, innocent face. What could be more transparent and honest? Don’t trust it, say a group of Swiss scientiststhis link opens in a new tab. According to their work, which was published in 2017this link opens in a new tab, dogs are capable of displaying deceptive behavior toward humans.
