Randomized experiments have enormous potential to improve human welfare in many domains, including healthcare, education, finance, and public policy. However, such “A/B tests” are often criticized on ethical grounds even as similar, untested interventions are implemented without objection. We find robust evidence across 16 studies of 5,873 participants from three diverse populations spanning nine domains—from healthcare to autonomous vehicle design to poverty reduction—that people frequently rat...

The rise of fake news highlights the erosion of long-standing institutional bulwarks against misinformation in the internet age. Concern over the problem is global. However, much remains unknown regarding the vulnerabilities of individuals, institutions, and society to manipulations by malicious actors. A new system of safeguards is needed. Below, we discuss extant social and computer science research regarding belief in fake news and the mechanisms by which it spreads. Fake news has a long hist...

We propose to change the default P-value threshold for statistical significance from 0.05 to 0.005 for claims of new discoveries.

The quasifree γ d → π − p ( p ) differential cross section has been measured with CLAS at photon beam energies E γ from 0.445 to 2.510 GeV (corresponding to W from 1.311 to 2.366 GeV) for pion center-of-mass angles cos θ c . m . π from − 0.72 to 0.92. A correction for final state interactions has been applied to these data to extract the γ n → π − p differential cross sections. These cross sections are quoted in 8428 ( E γ , cos θ c . m . π ) bins, a factor of nearly 3 increase in the world stat...
