Minimally invasive colitis screening using infrared technology could offer fast, simple test

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

Could we use this for colon scopes? I know many who would like to stop drining the speciality milk shake from their local drug stores prior to the date with the GI.


A minimally invasive screening for ulcerative colitis, a debilitating gastrointestinal tract disorder, using emerging infrared technology could be a rapid and cost-effective method for detecting disease that eliminates the need for biopsies and intrusive testing of the human body, according to researchers at Georgia State University.

The technique involves testing serum, the clear liquid that can be separated from clotted blood, for the increased presence of mannose, a sugar that is a marker for , using Attenuated Total Reflectance Fourier Transform Infrared (ATR-FTIR) spectroscopy. This technology is sensitive to vibrations in the chemical bonds of the serum sample’s molecules and requires minimal sample preparation, making it a rapid diagnostic alternative.

AI talent grab sparks excitement and concern

Posted by in categories: computing, robotics/AI

AI talent from academia is not surprising; however, another area where AI talent has existed in the US is in the national labs such as those Computer Scientists and Architects at ORNL (X-10, K-25, Y-12) during the years of 1990s, 2000s, and 2010-today as well as other labs such as Los Alamos, etc… I know this because I was one and worked with many AI specialists and researchers. I will say some of this talent has gone into the private sector; however, many still work on AI. In case companies are interested in trying to locate solid AI specialists.


Google, Facebook and other tech firms are changing how artificial-intelligence research is done.

Rave Computer to Offer NVIDIA DGX-1 Deep Learning System

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, supercomputing

Now, I have been hearing folks are planning to experiment with block chaining on the new Nvidia DGX-1. I do know Nvidia’s CEO mentioned that DGX-1 could be used in conjunction with block chaining as an interim step to Quatum Computing to help secure information. We’ll see.


Sterling Heights, MI (PRWEB) April 24, 2016.

Rave Computer, an Elite Solution Provider in the NVIDIA Partner Network program, today announced that it has been selected to offer the new NVIDIA® DGX-1™ deep learning system, the world’s first deep learning supercomputer designed to meet the unlimited computing demands of artificial intelligence.

US Sends F-22 Warplanes To Support Romania From Russian Threat

Posted by in categories: geopolitics, military, treaties

Lookout world; could we see WWIII?


A US KC-135 refuelling plane flew with the two F-22 Raptor fighters from Britain to Romania’s Mihail Kogalniceanu air base on the Black Sea.

“The increased size of the 2016 deployment… allows U.S. Forces to assert their presence more widely across the eastern frontier”, said U.S. Air Force spokeswoman Major Sheryll Klinkel.

Micro-sized, Liquid-metal Particles for Heat-free Soldering Developed

Posted by in categories: electronics, engineering, particle physics, sustainability

His lab is dedicated to an idea called frugal innovation: “How do you do very high-level science or engineering with very little?” said Thuo, an assistant professor of materials science and engineering at Iowa State University and an associate of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory. “How can you solve a problem with the least amount of resources?”

That goal has Thuo and his research group using their materials expertise to study soft matter, single-molecule electronics and renewable energy production. A guiding principle is that, whenever possible, nature should do part of the work.

“Nature has a beautiful way of working for us,” he said. “Self-assembly and ambient oxidation are great tools in our designs.”

Japan set to open ‘robot kingdom‘ that employees robots

Posted by in categories: augmented reality, robotics/AI, virtual reality

Now, that is a concept to consider. Could we see theme parks like Disney be completely operated by robots and leverage other AI technology as well as VR/ AR technology?


A Nagasaki amusement park is turning the fears of a robot-run world into a family friendly attraction. Huis Ten Bosch is set to feature more than 200 androids in its ‘robot kingdom’ to serve guests.
