Semantic Scholar search engine is expanded into neuroscience

Posted by in categories: neuroscience, quantum physics, robotics/AI

Bio Intelligence-based search engine; coming soon. Building blocks if you think about it with the whole Synthetic DNA storage, connected cell circuitry to make buildings, machines, devices, etc. living. We needed quantum in the infrastructure to ensure things like bio-intelligence, autonomous machines, and connected super humans could eventually happen while reducing risks and threats. Now, we’re watching the ramp up of synthetic bio systems. Definitely exciting especially when we could see in our lifetime mobile devices no longer needed.

(Tech Xplore)—Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence is in the news with its smart search engine, Semantic Scholar.

Namely, they are expanding their intelligence-based service into neuroscience research.

Bionic Eyes Are Coming, and They’ll Make Us Superhuman

Posted by in categories: cyborgs, transhumanism

In Brief:

  • Bionic eyes are already in development and could alleviate sight issues for hundreds of millions suffering from visual impairments or blindness.
  • The mechanical eyes could also provide enhanced sight so cybernetic humans could see more of the electromagnetic spectrum.

With an estimated 285 million people worldwide with visual impairment, many treatments and technological innovations have long been in development. The panacea of restoring sight to the blind is the stuff of sci-fi: the bionic eye.

University of Buffalo researchers say autonomous weapons ‘have and will become possible’

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, robotics/AI

Researchers have warned it is already too late to stop killer robots — and say banning them would be little more than a temporary solution.

University at Buffalo researchers claim ‘society is entering into a situation where systems like these have and will become possible.’

10 Science Startups Shaping Tomorrow

Posted by in categories: business, science

Last month in Paris, the Hello Tomorrow Global Summit brought together entrepreneurs and inventors, investors and industry for a two-day event exploring the science shaping the future.

Now in its third year, the conference is unique in the sci-and-tech futures circuit for putting scientists, academics and inventors centre stage, and in the same room as the investors and business types who can help bring their ideas to life. Some of the leading minds of tomorrow were there to present, discuss and debate their work.

Among them were some 500 startups battling for the Hello Tomorrow Challenge, a prize awarding early-stage science and tech ventures across 10 categories – from air quality to aeronautics – with equity-free cash, mentoring and exposure.

Immune cells may facilitate tumor growth

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

A new avenue of research opens up for cancer and potential therapies.

A new study led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) suggests there may be a way to limit tumor growth by targeting immune system cells called macrophages.

The research reveals that can “drill” through tumors to create new vessel-like structures for delivering oxygen and nutrients as tumors grow.
