Harder To Outrun China’s New Humanoid Robot

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Unitree is a publicly traded robot company with about $5 billion in market value. They have sped up their humanoid robot to human jogging speed of 3.3 meters per second. This is about 7.5 miles per hour. It would not tire so it would take 50 minutes to cover a 10 kilometer race with enough battery power.

It can lift boxes and climb and descend stairs. It was able to jump vertically.

They have hand attachments that currently do not have finger and grasping motions.

Researchers Create AI-Powered Malware That Spreads on Its Own

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, robotics/AI

Researchers have developed a computer “worm” that can spread from one computer to another using generative AI, a warning sign that the tech could be used to develop dangerous malware in the near future — if it hasn’t already.

As Wired reports, the worm can attack AI-powered email assistants to obtain sensitive data from emails and blast out spam messages that infect other systems.

“It basically means that now you have the ability to conduct or to perform a new kind of cyberattack that hasn’t been seen before,” Cornell Tech researcher Ben Nassi, coauthor of a yet-to-be-peer-reviewed paper about the work, told Wired.

Antibiotics-Induced Intracranial Hypertension: A Case Report With Literature Review

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

Idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) is a rare condition characterized by increased intracranial pressure, with an unknown cause. However, the pathophysiology of antibiotic-induced IIH remains unclear. The clinical symptoms include headache, visual disturbances, and vomiting. The diagnosis is confirmed by an elevated intracranial pressure (ICP) with normal CSF study and cerebral imaging. Management includes discontinuing the offending antibiotic and reducing ICP with medications such as acetazolamide or diuretics. Therefore, surgical intervention may be necessary in severe cases.

In this article, we report the case of a 19-year-old patient, admitted with symptoms of intracranial hypertension syndrome, occurring three days after receiving antibiotics (gentamicin, penicillin). Physical examination revealed bilateral optic disc edema.
