Light-Triggered Particles Deliver Photoimmunotherapy for Cancer

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, chemistry, nanotechnology

More noninvasive cancer treatments are being made:

A research group from Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST) developed light-activatable, liquid metal (LM) nanoparticles for cancer diagnosis and treatment via photoimmunotherapy. The LM nanoparticles can target and destroy cancer cells and can be fluorescently tagged to function as reporters to identify and eliminate tumors in vivo.

Gallium (Ga)-based LM nanoparticles are promising nanoscale materials for biomedical applications due to their physicochemical properties, including flexibility, easy surface modification, efficient photothermal conversion, and high biocompatibility.

Synopsys to add generative AI to design tools

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Synopsys is looking to add generative AI to its EDA tools to boost chip design productivity.

The company already uses a range of AI techniques in its tools from deep neural networks (DNNs) to recursive neural networks (RNNs). These are incorporated into the, and tools that have been used for well over 100 chip tapeouts.

Now the company is looking at the transformer network technologies used in generative AI (Gen-AI) to further enhance the tools says founder and retiring CEO Aart de Geus.

Drug Turns on Self-Destruct Genes in Cancer Cells

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

Researchers have designed a molecule that kills blood cancer cells by tricking them into self-destructing, according to results of a new study. Experts say the molecule represents a new class of compounds that could have broad potential as cancer treatments.

Like a cyanide pill hidden in the teeth of a James Bond villain, human cells have a quick means of self-destruction if necessary. This natural safeguard is a way for the body to rid itself of old, damaged, or infected cells—including cancer cells.

But in many types of cancer, those means of self-destruction are subverted or blocked off. In some diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) tumors, for example, genes that orchestrate cell death are shut off by a protein called BCL6.

Exploring transhumanism

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, cyborgs, robotics/AI, transhumanism

What do pacemakers, prosthetic limbs, Iron Man and flu vaccines all have in common? They are examples of an old idea that’s been gaining in significance in the last several decades: transhumanism. The word denotes a set of ideas relating to the increasing integration of humans with their technologies. At the heart of the transhuman conversation, however, lies the oldest question of all: What does it mean to be human?

When talking about transhumanism, it’s easy to get lost because the definition is imprecise. “Transhumanism” can refer to the Transhumanist (with a capital T) movement, which actively pursues a technologically enhanced future, or an amorphous body of ideas and technologies that are closing the bio-techno gap, such as a robotic exoskeleton that enhances the natural strength of the wearer.

At Arizona State University, a diverse set of researchers has been critically examining transhumanism since 2004.

The Fermi Paradox & Panspermia

Posted by in categories: evolution, existential risks

Our current theory of evolution holds that all life on Earth originated from a single, simple life form billions of years ago. But what if that life did not originate on Earth? In this episode we’ll explore the theory of Panspermia, that origin of life might be extraterrestrial in origin, and that the abiogenesis of that origin life form we descend from might have descended from the sky in a comet or some other alien source. We will explore the impact this concept would have on the Fermi Paradox if true.
