World Economic Forum

Posted by in categories: computing, economics, governance

Developments in computing are driving the transformation of entire systems of production, management, and governance. In this interview Justine Cassell, Associate Dean, Technology, Strategy and Impact, at the School of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University, and co-chair of the Global Future Council on Computing, says we must ensure that these developments benefit all society, not just the wealthy or those participating in the “new economy”.

Why should the world care about the future of computing?

Today computers are in virtually everything we touch, all day long. We still have an image of computers as being rectangular objects either on a desk, or these days in our pockets; but computers are in our cars, they’re in our thermostats, they’re in our refrigerators. In fact, increasingly computers are no longer objects at all, but they suffuse fabric and virtually every other material. Because of that, we really do need to care about what the future of computing holds because it is going to impact our lives all day long.

Nothing found for Campaigns Cellage Targeting Senescent Cells With Synthetic Biology %5Bhr%5Dsenescent

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biological, life extension

Cellular senescence is a complicated process but here it is explained in a simple infographic. The removal of senescent cells (senolytics) is a very hot topic right now and it represents the arrival of the first of the SENS therapies.

CellAge is one of the companies engaged in senolytic research and they are running a campaign on Lifespan.io if you would like to learn more about them.

Protein that promotes ‘cell-suicide’ could revolutionise eye cancer treatment

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

More progress with cancer and using a similar approach to senolytics, no surprise really as cancer and senescent cell share a lot of common ground and approach that work with one may well work with the other if they are aimed at inducing apoptosis.


Apoptosis, or , is a rapid and irreversible process to efficiently eliminate dysfunctional cells. A hallmark of cancer is the ability of malignant cells to evade apoptosis.

Dr Luminita Paraoan, from the University’s Department of Eye and Vision Science in the Institute of Ageing and Chronic Disease, has published new findings in the British Journal of Cancer that identify the requirement of a protein called p63 for the initiation of apoptosis in UM.

Evolution’s Brutally Simple Rules Can Make Machines More Creative

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biological, computing, economics, information science

Creative Machines; however, are they truly without a built in bias due to their own creator/s?


Despite nature’s bewildering complexity, the driving force behind it is incredibly simple. ‘Survival of the fittest’ is an uncomplicated but brutally effective optimization strategy that has allowed life to solve complex problems, like vision and flight, and colonize the harshest of environments.
