Sudden Death: A New Way to Compare Recommendation Diversification [article]

Derek Bridge and Mesut Kaya and Pablo Castells
2019 arXiv   pre-print
We propose the Sudden Death score as a new and better way of making these comparisons.  ...  This paper describes problems with the current way we compare the diversity of different recommendation lists in offline experiments. We illustrate the problems with a case study.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS is paper emanates from research supported by a grant from Science Foundation Ireland (Grant Number SFI/12/RC/2289), which is co-funded under the European Regional Development Fund.  ...

How deaths can help clinicians and policy‐makers understand the risks of novel psychoactive substances

John Martin Corkery, Fabrizio Schifano, Giovanni Martinotti
2020 British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology  
NPS deaths are continuing to increase numerically and as a proportion of all drug-poisoning deaths.  ...  However, without reliable, accurate and complete information that is correctly collated, scientifically analysed and disseminated in a timely manner, an understanding of the phenomenon of what deaths can  ...  A further challenge is the fact that NPS are subject to rapid diversification and continual appearance in drug markets.  ...

The shadow of death: analysing the pre-exit productivity of Portuguese manufacturing firms

Carlos Carreira, Paulino Teixeira
2009 Small Business Economics  
In line, too, with some key theoretical predictions, exiting firms reveal a falling productivity level over a number of years prior to exit.  ...  Industry and macro environment were also found to have a non-negligible role on the exit of mature firms.  ...  The empirical literature also suggests that exiting firms do not face a 'sudden death'.  ...

Species Delimitation, Phylogenetic Relationships, and Temporal Divergence Model in the Genus Aeromonas

J. G. Lorén, Maribel Farfán, M. C. Fusté
2018 Frontiers in Microbiology  
Although the GMYC method was originally designed to assume a constant (Yule) model of diversification at between-species level, it was later evaluated simulating other conditions.  ...  This approach has been widely used to delineate eukaryote species and establish their diversification process from sequence data.  ...  Ariadna Sanglas for her invaluable help and contribution of sequences to this study.  ...

What drives diversification in a pantropical plant lineage with extraordinary capacity for long‐distance dispersal and colonization?

Isabel Larridon, Javier Galán Díaz, Kenneth Bauters, Marcial Escudero
2020 Journal of Biogeography  
Aim: Colonization of new areas may entail shifts in diversification rates linked to biogeographical movement (dispersification), which may involve niche evolution if species were not exapted to new environments  ...  Methods: We used molecular data from three DNA regions sequenced for 278 accessions representing 140 Scleria taxa (53% of species) to develop a chronogram, model ancestral ranges and measure rates of diversification  ...  A key innovation may allow a species to invade a new niche (novel niche invasion) allowing a subsequent shift in diversification rates (Boucher et al., 2012) .  ...
