Researchers unveil tool to help developers create augmented reality task assistants

Posted by in categories: augmented reality, food

Augmented reality (AR) technology has long fascinated both the scientific community and the general public, remaining a staple of modern science fiction for decades.

In the pursuit of advanced AR assistants—ones that can guide people through intricate surgeries or everyday food preparation, for example—a research team from NYU Tandon School of Engineering has introduced Augmented Reality Guidance and User-Modeling System, or ARGUS.

An interactive visual analytics tool, ARGUS is engineered to support the development of intelligent AR assistants that can run on devices like Microsoft HoloLens 2 or MagicLeap. It enables developers to collect and analyze data, model how people perform tasks, and find and fix problems in the AR assistants they are building.

Compound d16 reduces tumor growth and overcomes therapeutic resistance in mutant p53-bearing cancers

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics

Researchers at Baylor College of Medicine have developed a new compound called d16 that can reduce tumor growth and overcome therapeutic resistance in mutant p53-bearing cancers in the lab. The findings, published in the journal Cancer Research Communications, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research, open opportunities for new combination therapies for these difficult-to-treat cancers.

“One of the most common alterations in many human cancers is mutations in p53, a gene that normally provides one of the most powerful shields against tumor growth,” said first author, Dr. Helena Folly-Kossi, a postdoctoral associate in Dr. Weei-Chin Lin’s lab at Baylor. “Mutations that alter the normal function of p53 can promote tumor growth, cancer progression and resistance to therapy, which are associated with poor prognosis. It is important to understand how p53 mutations help cancer grow to develop therapies to counteract their effects.”

Studying how to target p53 mutations that promote cancer growth has been difficult. “One of the challenges has been to develop drugs that act on mutant p53 directly. Some of these drugs are under development, but they appear to be toxic,” said Lin, professor of medicine-hematology and oncology and of molecular and cellular biology. He also is a member of Baylor’s Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center and the corresponding author of the work.

Meta’s new AI assistant trained on public Facebook and Instagram posts

Posted by in categories: policy, robotics/AI

MENLO PARK, California, Sept 28 (Reuters) — Meta Platforms (META.O) used public Facebook and Instagram posts to train parts of its new Meta AI virtual assistant, but excluded private posts shared only with family and friends in an effort to respect consumers’ privacy, the company’s top policy executive told Reuters in an interview.

Meta also did not use private chats on its messaging services as training data for the model and took steps to filter private details from public datasets used for training, said Meta President of Global Affairs Nick Clegg, speaking on the sidelines of the company’s annual Connect conference this week.

“We’ve tried to exclude datasets that have a heavy preponderance of personal information,” Clegg said, adding that the “vast majority” of the data used by Meta for training was publicly available.

Meet ‘Dogxim,’ the world’s first known dog-fox hybrid—and a genetic oddity

Posted by in categories: education, food, genetics

The animal looked and barked like a dog—albeit one with long, pointed, foxlike ears—but it also climbed bushes, a behavior more typical of the local Pampas fox, and it refused common dog food, preferring to eat rats.

Caretakers began to wonder if it might be a hybrid—a mixture of domestic dog and some local wild canid. They contacted geneticists Thales Renato Ochotorena de Freitas from the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul and Rafael Kretschmer from the Universidade Federal de Pelotas who, last month, published a study confirming the animal was the world’s first documented fox-dog. The finding excited and intrigued experts in animal genetics.

“What a strange hybrid beast!” wrote Roland Kays, a biologist with North Carolina State University and the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, on X (formerly Twitter), alongside a photo of the creature and link to the study.

Threat Data Feeds and Threat Intelligence Are Not the Same Thing

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, electronics

In cybersecurity, “threat data feeds” and “threat intelligence” are often used interchangeably. They are, however, quite different. To make matters worse, the term “threat intelligence” has been co-opted and watered down by vendors, making it even more difficult to define the difference between threat data feeds and threat intelligence.

An easy, and accessible, way to tell the difference is to think about weather forecasts. National TV news shows present a forecast for the entire country. You might get some useful information from this, but usually you just get an idea of what the weather is like nationwide. Local weather, however, drills down into the expected conditions for your specific area — not only temperature and weather, but also wind speed, barometric pressure, times for weather changes, and so on. You can use this information to plan out your actions for the next few days.

Using the weather forecast analogy, threat data feeds provide a high-level view of the security landscape. For example, it is useful to know that there is a vulnerability in a specific type of software, but it can be relatively trivial if that software is not in use at your organization. Likewise, knowing which threat groups are active is useful information, but how do you know if they are targeting your sector or organization and what processes and tools they are using?
