The threat of wildfires is rising. So is new artificial intelligence solutions to fight them

Posted by in categories: climatology, robotics/AI, satellites, sustainability

Wildfires fueled by climate change have ravaged communities from Maui to the Mediterranean this summer, killing many people, exhausting firefighters and fueling demand for new solutions. Enter artificial intelligence.

Firefighters and startups are using AI-enabled cameras to scan the horizon for signs of smoke. A German company is building a constellation of satellites to detect fires from space. And Microsoft is using AI models to predict where the next blaze could be sparked.

With wildfires becoming larger and more intense as the world warms, firefighters, utilities and governments are scrambling to get ahead of the flames by tapping into the latest AI technology—which has stirred both fear and excitement for its potential to transform life. While increasingly stretched first responders hope AI offers them a leg up, humans are still needed to check that the tech is accurate.

Harnessing the immune system to fight ovarian cancer

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

“That’s what makes this research unique from a scientific standpoint. The study participant can walk over to the lab, have the blood drawn and within hours their specimen can be transferred to the on-site facility where the process of biomanufacturing the vaccine begins,” says Dr. Block. “That would not be possible with an outside manufacturer.”

A deadly form of reproductive system cancer

Ovarian cancer is the deadliest form of gynecologic cancer. It often is not diagnosed until advanced stages, when it is less treatable. Even with standard surgery and chemotherapy, tumors return in up to 70% of women. The outcome is often poor. 19,000 women in the U.S. are diagnosed with ovarian cancer every year and more than 13,000 die from it, according to the American Cancer Society.

Superior Outcomes Seen With Fixed-Duration Ibrutinib/Venetoclax in CLL

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

In the phase 3 GLOW study, ibrutinib plus venetoclax significantly improved progression-free survival and other outcomes in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia, across most genomic subgroups.

Patients treated with fixed-duration ibrutinib (Imbruvica) plus venetoclax (Venclexta) achieved higher undetectable minimal residual disease (uMRD), progression-free survival (PFS), and overall survival (OS) rates compared with chlorambucil plus obinutuzumab (Gazyva) across most genomic subgroups of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL).1.

Findings come from the phase 3 GLOW study (NCT03462719) in which data were presented at the 11th Annual Meeting of the Society of Hematologic Oncology (SOHO 2023). Patients treated with ibrutinib and venetoclax achieved a higher uMRD rate at 3 months (54.7%) after the end of treatment compared with patients treated with obinutuzumab and chlorambucil (39.0%), except patients with trisomy-12, IGLL5 mutation, and mutated immunoglobulin heavy-chain variable (mIGHV).

Dark stars: Have we finally found a weird sun powered by dark matter?

Posted by in categories: cosmology, particle physics

Astronomers say they have spotted evidence of stars fuelled by the annihilation of dark matter particles. If true, it could solve the cosmic mystery of how supermassive black holes appeared so early.

Job Seekers, Look Out for Job Scams

Posted by in categories: business, cybercrime/malcode, economics, finance

The economic downturn is already a devastating blow to job seekers everywhere. Now scammers are taking advantage of the situation by ramping up their methods of swindling people.

Job scamming is a threat to job seekers all over the world. For example, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) reported an increase in job scam complaints in the United States and Canada in the past several years. Singapore job seekers lost $660 million SGD ($495 million USD) in 2022 alone. And in the UK, 10,000 people were approached on LinkedIn and Facebook by “foreign spies and malicious actors” to steal information.

Phishing attacks and malware are the primary methods of scamming job seekers, according to a February Trellix report. Scammers create fake websites, often employing typosquatting. A fake site uses a real name like Indeed that’s slightly misspelled (such as “Indeeed”) or extends the URL in hopes the job seeker will not notice the base domain name. These sites appear legitimate but are used to steal passwords and financial information.
