Improving prostate cancer screening: accounting for genetic determinants of PSA variation

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics

In a recent study published in Nature Medicine, researchers conducted a genome-wide analysis of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels of men without prostate cancer to understand the non-cancer-related variation in PSA levels to improve decision-making during the diagnosis of prostate cancer.

AI Is About to Turn Book Publishing Upside-Down

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, transportation

I believe that every function in trade book publishing today can be automated with the help of generative AI. And, if this is true, then the trade book publishing industry as we know it will soon be obsolete. We will need to move on.

There are two quick provisos, however. The first is straightforward: this is not just about ChatGPT—or other GPTs (generative pretrained transformers) and LLMs (large language models). A range of associated technologies and processes can and will be brought into play that augment the functionality of generative AI. But generative AI is the key ingredient. Without it, what I’m describing is impossible.

The second proviso is of a different flavor. When you make absolutist claims about a technology, people will invariably try to defeat you with another absolute. If you claim that one day all cars will be self-driving, someone will point out that this won’t apply to Formula One race cars. Point taken.

XAVER 1000: The Radar That Can ‘See’ Through Walls

Posted by in category: military

Israel’s military technology manufacturer, Camero Tech, has unveiled its latest and most advanced detection system. Called XAVER 1,000, this system enables soldiers to gain a tactical advantage by detecting objects and individuals behind solid walls before initiating an attack. The XAVER 1,000 was showcased at the Eurosatory 2022 exhibition in Paris, where it was met with significant interest and positive feedback.

In this video, we are taking a closer look at the XAVER 1000.

The Importance of Hormone Status in Breast Cancer: A Guide to Hormone Dependent Breast Cancer (HDBC)

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

What hormone receptors are involved in HDBC? Why is it important to know breast cancer hormone status? The prognosis of HDBC Early detection Age and hormone status Recent research into HDBC Conclusion References Further reading

Hormone-dependent breast cancer (HDBC), also known as hormone receptor-positive breast cancer, is a type of breast cancer driven by hormones such as estrogen and progesterone. It is estimated that 70–80% of breast cancers are HDBC, making it the most common type of breast cancer.

Understanding the nature of HDBC is vital to further developing effective therapeutic and preventative strategies. Recent decades have seen breast cancer survival rates continuously improve. With better prevention and treatment, we can hope for these rates to improve further.

Hyperloop Technology to Reduce Travel Time Between Dubai and Abu Dhabi to 12 Minutes

Posted by in categories: innovation, transportation

A breakthrough in transportation has brought the possibility of traveling between Dubai and Abu Dhabi in just 12 minutes one step closer. Virgin’s Hyperloop, supported by Dubai-based firm DP World, conducted successful tests in the Nevada desert.

During the trial, two Hyperloop staff members traveled 500 meters on a “DevLoop” in just 15 seconds, reaching speeds of 107 mph (172 kph). The Hyperloop, which uses vacuum tubes to propel pods at high speeds, aims to eventually achieve speeds of 1,000 km/h.

Although the recent test occurred in Nevada, the Los Angeles-based Hyperloop company is considering various locations for implementing the technology, including a route between Dubai and Abu Dhabi. If realized, this Hyperloop connection would significantly reduce travel time between the two Emirates.

The AI Founder Taking Credit For Stable Diffusion’s Success Has A History Of Exaggeration

Posted by in categories: finance, internet, robotics/AI

Stability AI became a $1 billion company with the help of a viral AI text-to-image generator and — per interviews with more than 30 people — some misleading claims from founder Emad Mostaque.

Emad Mostaque is the modern-day Renaissance man who kicked off the AI gold rush. The Oxford master’s degree holder is an award-winning hedge fund manager, a trusted confidant to the United Nations and the tech founder behind Stable Diffusion — the text-to-image generator that broke the internet last summer and, in his words, pressured OpenAI to launch ChatGPT, the bot that mainstreamed AI.
