Measuring scientific buzz [article]

Kishore Vasan, Jevin West
2018 arXiv   pre-print
This work shows promise of using author keywords to better understand dynamics of buzz within science.  ...  In this paper, we present our preliminary analysis where we measure the burstiness of keywords within the field of AI. We examine 150k keywords in approximately 100k journal and conference papers.  ...  We plan to use novel techniques to cluster similar keywords together in future work. 3 Code can be found at www.github.com/kishorevasan/measuring-scientific-buzz  ...

Sonar sound groups and increased terminal buzz duration reflect task complexity in hunting bats

Katrine Hulgard, John M. Ratcliffe
2016 Scientific Reports  
Here we show that bats produce longer terminal buzzes and more sonar sound groups during their approach to prey under presumably more difficult conditions.  ...  Buzz duration and sonar sound groups have been suggested to be independent means by which bats attend to would-be targets and other objects of interest.  ...  Pulse interval (pulse onset to onset of next pulse) was measured from oscillograms.  ...

Superfast Muscles Set Maximum Call Rate in Echolocating Bats

C. P. H. Elemans, A. F. Mead, L. Jakobsen, J. M. Ratcliffe
2011 Science  
We found that previously unknown and highly specialized superfast muscles power rapid call rates in the terminal buzz.  ...  This high call rate phase, dubbed the terminal buzz, has proven enigmatic because it is unknown how bats are able to produce calls so quickly.  ...  ) and force transducer (model 400A, Aurora Scientific) using 10/0 silk suture.  ...

2014 Biology Letters  
We showed that the probability of recording a buzz declined by 15% in the ensonified area and was positively related to distance from the source vessel.  ...  Here, we used an array of passive acoustic loggers coupled with calibrated noise measurements to test whether the seismic survey influenced the activity patterns of porpoises remaining in the area.  ...  The project benefitted at all stages from a scientific steering group and broad stakeholder group with statutory and NGO representation.  ...
