The Plan to stop killer Robots: Why World Leaders and Experts are Sounding the Alarm
You might suppose Hollywood is good at predicting the future. Indeed, Robert Wallace, head of the CIA’s Office of Technical Service and the US equivalent of MI6’s fictional Q, has recounted how Russian spies would watch the latest Bond movie to see what technologies might be coming their way.
For 80 years, This World War II Shipwreck Leaked Toxic Pollutants into the Sea, Changing the Ecosystem
The year is 1942. The atmosphere is abuzz with the sounds of the Second World War. The German Navy took over a fishing trawler, V 1302 John Mahn, for use as a Vorpostenboot, or patrol boat, for Operation Cerberus, or Channel Dash, a German naval operation. Unfortunately, V 1302 John Mahn was the only German ship sunk by UK bombers during the entire Channel Dash. It has rested in the Belgian North Sea ever since.
A Powerful "Borg" DNA makes Methane-eating Bacteria Stranger than ever
If you think carbon dioxide is the most powerful greenhouse gas, think again. When it comes to heating the Earth, methane is 80 times more effective than CO2 and is responsible for 30% of the total global warming our planet experiences. This is why bacteria that consume methane and reduce their concentration in our environment are of great importance, as they help us fight climate change.
Artificial Intelligence Can Determine Racial Identity from Medical Images
A study shows that artificial intelligence (AI) has the capability to accurately predict someone’s race in radiographic images. This is something that human experts were not able to do. They couldn't predict self-reported race from these images.
A radioactive Tumor Implant is a Major Breakthrough for Treating Pancreatic Cancer
In what can be called a quantum leap in medical science, the most successful treatment for pancreatic cancer ever recorded in mouse models is here. Biomedical engineers at Duke University have developed an approach that completely eliminates tumors in 80 percent of mice across various model types, as opposed to most trials that solely halt the growth of such tumors.
Mercedes Benz EQS 580 launched at $54,950, gets 857 km range
Mercedes-Benz has rolled out the all-electric EQS 580 4MATIC in India for $68,400 (ex-showroom). The price sits around $66,100 below the recently launched AMG EQS 53S since the latter is a fully imported model brought to the country via the completely built-up unit (CBU) route. Interestingly, it is also cheaper than its ICE-powered cousin—S-Class—by Rs 5 lakh, thanks to a lower GST rate for fully-electric vehicles. The price gap increases further on the account of exemption of road tax for EVs in many states. EQS 580 is the third fully-electric model by the German marque in India after the EQC SUV and AMG EQS 53S. It is also the first battery-powered model from Mercedes to be locally assembled in India via completely knocked down (CKD) kits at the company’s Chakan-based facility near Pune, Maharashtra. In fact, India is the only country outside Germany where the EQS is assembled.
Tiny Robotic pill RoboCap Delivers Drugs to Guts and Could end Injections Like Insulin
Devices produced for human health continue to make our lives easier. For this purpose, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers aim to finish insulin injections by producing a robotic capsule.
Stanford researchers produce a groundbreaking cancer-fighting compound
In what can be called a major scientific breakthrough, Stanford researchers have discovered a "rapid and sustainable" way to synthetically produce a promising cancer-fighting compound, designated EBC-46, right in the lab, according to a press release published by the institution.
Scientists discover a new ecosystem in the deep ocean of Maldives
Scientists on a mission in the Maldives have discovered a new ecosystem 500 meters deep in the ocean. The discovery is expected to result in enhanced safeguards for the marine life and fisheries in this special region, according to a press release published on Tuesday by Nekton.
3D Bioprinted Breast Cancer Tumors Could be a Radical New Method of Treatment
Pennsylvania State University researchers have added a new one to the studies in the field of cancer research. In a new study on comprehending a condition that is one of the main causes of mortality worldwide, researchers 3D bioprinted breast cancer tumors and treated them.
