🗞 TECHNOLOGY NEWS💻🔧🖥:
MEDICAL AI MODELS RELY ON ‘SHORTCUTS’ THAT COULD LEAD TO MISDIAGNOSIS OF COVID-19
Artificial intelligence promises to be a powerful tool for improving the speed and accuracy of medical decision-making to improve patient outcomes. From diagnosing disease, to personalizing treatment, to predicting complications from surgery, AI could become as integral to patient care in the future as imaging and laboratory tests are today.
SONY LAUNCHES MOTION-SENSING MUSIC EFFECTS CONTROLLER, MOTION SONIC
A long time in the making, Sony has just announced the upcoming release of Motion Sonic, a new technology that allows music lovers to track their own movements as they play music. Whether you are strumming a guitar or waving your hands to a beat, Motion Sonic ensures your movements remain in sync with the melody at hand.
DANGEROUSLY TRENDING: DRIVERLESS TESLA VIDEOS ON SOCIAL MEDIA
It was a boozy joyride captured for TikTok with a soundtrack provided by Justin Bieber and with a Tesla serving as the “Designated Driver” for the night
🗞 PHYSICS NEWS⚙♨:
PHONON CATALYSIS COULD LEAD TO A NEW FIELD
Batteries and fuel cells often rely on a process known as ion diffusion to function. In ion diffusion, ionized atoms move through solid materials, similar to the process of water being absorbed by rice when cooked. Just like cooking rice, ion diffusion is incredibly temperature-dependent and requires high temperatures to happen fast.
RESEARCHERS DISCOVER THAT A MECHANICAL CUE IS AT THE ORIGIN OF CELL DEATH DECISION
In many species including humans, the cells responsible for reproduction, the germ cells, are often highly interconnected and share their cytoplasm. In the hermaphrodite nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, up to 500 germ cells are connected to each other in the gonad, the tissue that produces eggs and sperm. These cells are arranged around a central cytoplasmic “corridor” and exchange cytoplasmic material fostering cell growth, and ultimately produce oocytes ready to be fertilized.
NEW TAKE ON MACHINE LEARNING HELPS US ‘SCALE UP’ PHASE TRANSITIONS
Researchers from Tokyo Metropolitan University have enhanced “super-resolution” machine learning techniques to study phase transitions. They identified key features of how large arrays of interacting particles behave at different temperatures by simulating tiny arrays before using a convolutional neural network to generate a good estimate of what a larger array would look like using correlation configurations. The massive saving in computational cost may realize unique ways of understanding how materials behave.
🗞 EARTH NEWS🌏:
BEER BYPRODUCT MIXED WITH MANURE PROVES AN EXCELLENT PESTICIDE
The use of many chemical fumigants in agriculture have been demonstrated to be harmful to human health and the environment and therefore banned from use.
GLOBAL WARMING ALREADY RESPONSIBLE FOR ONE IN THREE HEAT-RELATED DEATHS
Between 1991 and 2018, more than a third of all deaths in which heat played a role were attributable to human-induced global warming, according to a new article in Nature Climate Change.
A DEEP DIVE INTO ORGANIC CARBON DISTRIBUTION IN HADAL TRENCHES
Hadal trenches are one of the ocean’s most extreme and least studied regions. Hadal zones, which begin at depths of around 6,000 meters, were once thought to be “biological deserts,” but over time they have been shown to be teeming with life. However, the distribution and source of organic carbon in hadal sediments are still not well understood.
🗞 ASTRONOMY & SPACE NEWS🌪🎇:
JAPANESE SPACE AGENCY TO PUT TRANSFORMABLE LUNAR ROBOT ON THE MOON
The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) has announced on its website that the agency has plans to put a Transformable Lunar Robot on the moon. In their announcement, they note that the goal of the robot deployment is to learn more about the surface of the moon as part of preparation for the deployment of a future crewed rover.
CHINA LAUNCHES CARGO ROCKET WITH SUPPLIES FOR SPACE STATION
A rocket carrying supplies for China’s new space station blasted off Saturday from an island in the South China Sea.
CHINA TO SEND 3 MALE ASTRONAUTS TO ITS SPACE STATION IN JUNE
A three-man crew of astronauts will blast off in June for a three-month mission on China’s new space station, according to a space official who was the country’s first astronaut in orbit.
🗞 NANOTECHNOLOGY NEWS⛄☃:
SCIENTISTS LOOK TO CAPTURE CLEAN ENERGY FROM OUR CLOTHING
Could a jacket or a pair of jeans one day power your mobile phone and other electronic devices?
MOLECULAR JIGGLING HAS IMPLICATIONS FOR CARBON NANOTUBE FIBERS
New research suggests the jiggling motion of carbon nanotubes suspended in liquid solutions could have implications for the structure, processing and properties of nanotube fibers formed from those solutions.
