Ten Fascinating [Medical-Technical-Commercial] Things

Ten Fascinating Things

By MIT Technology Review

  1. Doctors have kept fetal lambs alive in plastic artificial wombs for weeks, a technology that could soon help improve the care of premature babies.
  2. Google is tweaking its search algorithms and adding new reporting tools in order to help tackle fake news and offensive content.
  3. One of the best ways to learn is to ask someone for advice when you’re confused—which is exactly what this robot is able to do.
  4. Uber has ambitiously promised that its flying taxi vision will become a reality by 2020. (Relatedly: is it time we stopped calling these things flying cars?).
  5. By using lasers to identify the distinctive noises made by the beating wings of mosquitos, researchers might be able to find new ways to fight malaria.
  6. Boston Dynamics, the manufacturer of many a nightmarish robot, has been testing its mechanical dog, Spot, for package delivery in Boston.
  7. These tiny finger wearables let people touch what’s not there in virtual reality.
  8. Tiny water droplets in fog scatter light, making it impossible for us to see. But a new trick could overcome that to help lidar work better in extreme weather.
  9. China has built and launched its first ever homegrown aircraft carrier—a very public flex of its increasingly advanced technological muscle.
  10. An artificial intelligence scriptwriter produced every line for David Hasselhoff to act out in this very strange short short film. It’s as surreal as it sounds.

    “We’re seeing more employers turn to wearables not only to provide participation and engagement data, but increasingly to help move the needle on effectiveness of wellness programs in lowering health risk and improving health outcomes. … The data provided by wearables can also create actionable insights about how to invest your wellness dollars next year.”
