  • Two new wearable sensors may replace traditional medical diagnostic devices
    Throat-motion sensor monitors stroke effects more effectively A radical new type of stretchable, wearable sensor that measures vocal-cord movements could be a ?game changer? for stroke rehabilitation, according to Northwestern University scientists. The sensors can also measure swallowing ability (which may be affected by stroke), heart function, muscle activity, and sleep quality. Developed in the [...]

  • Neuroscientists reverse Alzheimer?s disease in mice
    Researchers from the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute have completely reversed the formation of amyloid plaques in the brains of mice with Alzheimer’s disease by gradually depleting an enzyme called BACE1. The procedure also improved the animals’ cognitive function. The study, published February 14 in the†Journal of Experimental Medicine, raises hopes that drugs targeting this [...]

  • How to train a robot to do complex abstract thinking
    Robots are great at following programmed steps. But asking a robot to ?move the green bottle from the cooler to the cupboard? would require it to have abstract representations of these things and actions, plus knowledge of its surroundings. (?Hmm, which of those millions of pixels is a ?cooler,? whatever than means? How do I [...]

  • Ray Kurzweil?s ?singularity? prediction supported by prominent AI scientists
    According to an article in web magazine Futurism†today, two prominent artificial intelligence (AI) experts have agreed with inventor, author and futurist Ray Kurzweil?s prediction of singularity — a future period during which the pace of technological change will be so rapid, its impact so deep, that human life will be irreversibly transformed — to happen [...]

  • Are you a cyborg?
    Bioprinting a brain A new bioprinting technique combines cryogenics (freezing) and 3D printing to create geometrical structures that are as soft (and complex) as the most delicate body tissues — mimicking the mechanical properties of organs such as the brain and lungs. The idea: “Seed” porous scaffolds that can act as a template for tissue [...]
