5 New Medical Innovations That Prove The Future is Now



5 New Medical Innovations That Prove The Future is Now

 Medicine
Recent discoveries are definitely going to have a dramatic impact on healthcare in the next decade. There are five medical innovations that are transforming the way we fight disease and deal with medical issues.

Cells More Resilient Than Initially Thought



Resiliant Cells


 Cell Biology
Another discovery has been made that will cause textbooks to be rewritten. New research reveals that when missing critical components, cells can adapt and make copies of their DNA in an other way.

Polymer Boosts Production of Stem Cells in Three Dimensions



Stem Cells

 Regenerative Medicine
Producing human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) for regenerative medicine and drug discovery may have gotten much easier, thanks to a polymer-based 3D culture system developed by Japanese researchers.

How To Arrange A Successful Opening Day For Your Business

 Entrepreneurship
Opening your first business to the public is a very exciting time indeed. It probably seems like a long time has passed since the first vague idea about becoming your own boss crossed your mind.

Material Points To Nanoscale Electronics Possibilities




 Nanotechnology
Researchers have shown how to switch a particular transition metal oxide, a lanthanum nickelate (LaNiO3), from a metal to an insulator by making the material less than a nanometer thick.

Nervana Systems


 Artificial Intelligence
Nervana Systems, a start-up looking to develop artificial intelligence hardware has just raised a considerable investment.  The company is developing specialized hardware for machine learning algorithms.

Researchers Alter Fat Metabolism in Animals to Prevent Heart Disease



Researchers Alter Fat Metabolism in Animals to Prevent Heart Disease

 Medicine
Working with mice and rabbits, Johns Hopkins scientists have found a way to block abnormal cholesterol production, transport and breakdown, successfully preventing the development of atherosclerosis, the main cause of heart attacks and strokes and the number-one cause of death among humans. The condition develops when fat builds inside blood vessels over time and renders them stiff, narrowed and hardened, greatly reducing their ability to feed oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscle and the brain.

Will 3D Printing Take Us One Step Closer to a Star Trek Future?



3D Printing Star Trek Future

 3D Printing
In the original Star Trek TV series from the 1960s, they had their fictional replicator technology that materialized food, drink and other objects. As this infographic shows, 3D printing is turning fiction into fact.

Link Established Between Sleep and Immune Function



Drosophila melanogaster

 Medicine
When we get sick it feels natural to try to hasten our recovery by getting some extra sleep. Researchers have found that this response has a definite purpose, in fruit flies: enhancing immune system response and recovery to infection.

Steve Omohundro Urges Preventing an Autonomous Weapons Arms Race



Steve Omohundro Urges Preventing an Autonomous Weapons Arms Race

 Artificial Intelligence
A study by AI researcher Steve Omohundro published in the Journal of Experimental & Theoretical Artificial Intelligence suggests that humans should be very careful to prevent future autonomous technology-based systems from developing anti-social and potentially harmful behavior.

Quantum Turbulence May Point To New Answers For Physics



Quantum Turbulence

 Quantum Physics
The discovery of the Higgs boson has confirmed theories about the origin of mass and, with it, offered the potential to explain other scientific mysteries. But, scientists are continually studying other, less-understood forces that may also shed light on matters not yet uncovered. Among these is quantum turbulence, according to New York University's Katepalli Sreenivasan.
 
The Story of the Chessboard


The classic parable of how the inventor of the game of chess used his knowledge of exponential growth to trick an emperor is commonly used to explain the staggering and accelerating growth of technology. The 33rd square on the chessboards represents the first step into the second half of the chessboard, where exponential growth takes off.

33rd Square explores technological progress in AI, robotics, genomics, neuroscience, nanotechnology, art, design and the future as humanity encroaches on The Singularity.
