Researchers develop faster, cheaper, and more precise method for identifying bacteria

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

That’s good news. Maybe there’s gonna be fewer super bugs springing up.

Researchers have developed a method that identifies bacteria easily, cheaply and more precisely than before. This can help reduce use of antibiotics.

Far too many antibiotics are used around the world. As a result, bacteria are becoming resistant.

AI Inside: Brain Chips Pioneering the Next Leap in Human Evolution

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Brain chips are no longer science fiction. They have become a reality and are transforming lives thanks to technological advancements, which allow a computer to decode brain signals, deduce human intentions, and finally enact them directly through a machine.

These systems that are making it possible are called BCI or a brain-computer interface, which studies signals from brain activity. Neuralink is the most well-known company in this field, creating a generalized brain interface to unlock human potential.

AI Developments Will Speed Up with the Defeat of Anti-Altman Allies

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Will AI now move faster and be less controlled?

It seems that the chaotic events of the last week at OpenAI have sped everything up, according to most observers.

Those warning about the risks of AI lost the battle on the drama over the control of 90 billion’s start-up OpenAI as two of the three external board members were replaced, and the outed CEO Sam Altman was reinstated.

5 More Brain-Computer Interface Companies You Need to Know

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, computing, cyborgs, Elon Musk, neuroscience

The brain-computer interface (BCI) space continues to rise in notoriety, and a number of players are throwing their hats in the ring.

Such technologies could enable users to control a computer with their brain, or even go beyond that. Countless immobile people someday could control a mouse cursor, keyboard, mobile device/tablet, wheelchair or prosthetic device by only thinking.

Big names have already established their presence in the space. Elon Musk’s Neuralink continues to make headway, while Bill Gates-and Jeff Bezos-backed Synchron has an innovative catheter-delivered implant. Blackrock Neurotech, which has a next-generation BCI, has been implanting its Utah Array in patients since 2004.

CAR-T cell therapy leads to long-term remission in lupus while maintaining vaccine response

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

New research at ACR Convergence 2023, the American College of Rheumatology’s annual meeting, demonstrates that CAR-T cell therapy could lead to sustained suppression of autoantibodies in treatment-resistant lupus while maintaining a robust response to vaccines.

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE, lupus) is a complex autoimmune disease marked by the production of autoantibodies to nucleic acid DNA and nuclear protein autoantigens and is associated with dysfunctional B . It mainly affects women and is more common and severe in people who are Black, Hispanic, or Asian. Lupus can lead to a wide range of systemic problems varying in severity, including skin, kidney, lung, joints, and and complications during pregnancy.

The disease often requires life-long treatment with immunosuppressive or immunomodulatory drugs, and a considerable number of patients don’t respond to them. One theoretical option for these patients is (CAR)-T cell therapy, which is successfully used to treat refractory blood cancers by destroying .
