Sophie Martin's insight:

"Les interactions entre machines et objets physiques sont donc au centre de leurs recherches, que ce soit par la reconnaissance d'objets physiques, du langage naturel ou de la voix. Intéressant pour Google, pour qui ces sujets sont justement au coeur de recherches appliquées dans Google Now ou les lunettes Google Glass, par exemple."

Harvard scientists invent the synaptic transistor that learns while it computes

Harvard scientists invent the synaptic transistor that learns while it computes | Already there | Scoop.it

It doesn't take a Watson to realize that even the world's best supercomputers are staggeringly inefficient and energy-intensive machines.

 

Our brains have upwards of 86 billion neurons, connected by synapses that not only complete myriad logic circuits; they continuously adapt to stimuli, strengthening some connections while weakening others. We call that process learning, and it enables the kind of rapid, highly efficient computational processes that put Siri and Blue Gene to shame.

 

Materials scientists at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have now created a new type of transistor that mimics the behavior of a synapse. The novel device simultaneously modulates the flow of information in a circuit and physically adapts to changing signals.

 

Exploiting unusual properties in modern materials, the synaptic transistor could mark the beginning of a new kind of artificial intelligence: one embedded not in smart algorithms but in the very architecture of a computer.

 

“There’s extraordinary interest in building energy-efficient electronics these days,” says principal investigator Shriram Ramanathan, associate professor of materials science at Harvard SEAS.

 

“Historically, people have been focused on speed, but with speed comes the penalty of power dissipation. With electronics becoming more and more powerful and ubiquitous, you could have a huge impact by cutting down the amount of energy they consume.”

 

The human mind, for all its phenomenal computing power, runs on roughly 20 Watts of energy (less than a household light bulb), so it offers a natural model for engineers.

 

“The transistor we’ve demonstrated is really an analog to the synapse in our brains,” says co-lead author Jian Shi, a postdoctoral fellow at SEAS. “Each time a neuron initiates an action and another neuron reacts, the synapse between them increases the strength of its connection. And the faster the neurons spike each time, the stronger the synaptic connection. Essentially, it memorizes the action between the neurons.”

Gene editing tool CRISPR-CAS can write HIV out of the picture

Gene editing tool CRISPR-CAS can write HIV out of the picture | Already there | Scoop.it

The latest form of genetic engineering can give human cells a rare mutation that keeps them HIV-free.

 

Take a hot new method that's opened up a new era of genetic engineering, apply it to the wonder stem cells that in 2012 won their discoverer a Nobel prize, and you might just have a tool to cure HIV infection. That's the hope of researchers led by Yuet Kan of the University of California, San Francisco – and they have proved the basic principle, altering the genome of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) to give them a rare natural mutation that allows some people to resist HIV.

 

Kan's work relies on "genome editing" – snipping out a particular DNA sequence and replacing it with another. It's much more precise than traditional forms of genetic engineering, in which sequences are added to the genome at random locations.

 

To alter the stem cells, Kan's team turned to the CRISPR-Cas9 system, asuper-efficient method of genome editing based on an ancient bacterial "immune system". In bacteria, the system takes fragments of DNA from invading viruses and splices them into the cell's own DNA, where they act like "wanted" posters, allowing the viruses to be recognised and attacked in future.

 

About 1 per cent of people of European descent are resistant to HIV, because they carry two copies of a mutation in the gene for a protein called CCR5. The virus must lock onto this protein before it can invade white blood cells, and the mutations prevent it from doing so.

 

Using a bone marrow transplant from a naturally HIV-resistant person,Timothy Ray Brown was famously "cured" of HIV infection. Kan's goal is to achieve the same result without the need to find compatible HIV-resistant bone marrow donors – who are in vanishingly short supply.

 

It's fairly easy to make iPSCs from a person's cells, which then have the potential to grow into any type of cell in the body. So if iPSCs could be given two copies of the protective mutation, it should be possible to make personalised versions of the therapy that cleared HIV from Brown's body. Kan's team has now shown that CRISPR-Cas9 can efficiently make the necessary genome edit. As expected, white blood cells grown from these altered stem cells were resistant to HIV upon testing.

 

"It's a really fantastic application of the tool," says Philip Gregory, chief scientific officer with Sangamo BioSciences of Richmond, California. However, he warns that there is a long way to go before it can be turned into a practical therapy.

IBM Is Using Watson To Psychoanalyze People From Their Tweets

IBM Is Using Watson To Psychoanalyze People From Their Tweets | Already there | Scoop.it
This is why IBM is investing $1 billion into Watson.

-

Besides winning "Jeopardy" and helping "put a permanent end to leukemia," IBM has found another use for its Watson supercomputer: psychoanalyzing people.

Watson is a computer that understands human language. Simply by looking at the language used when posting on social media sites, it can understand your personality and even predict major events likely to happen in your life.

Amazingly, this tech doesn't even  have to know a company's customer's social media accounts beforehand. It can figure them out on its own by sifting through what people post online with information in a company database.

The first use that comes to mind for this is marketing. The Watson tech tries to figure out what's happening in a person's life from social media to predict when to send you offers. As Fast Co. Design's John Brownlee writes:

"It can even predict major life-events: if you changed your Facebook status to "Married" a year ago, for example, a company might infer that it was about time to start approaching you about products and services for your first child."

Read This Before Zapping Your Brain - Wired Science | Already there | Scoop.it

Have you bought your transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) head-set yet? You've heard of this, right? It's a device with electrodes that zap your brain through your skull, using mild electrical currents to make you smarter.The man in the picture above sports one of the first commercially available devices. Produced by Foc.us, it’s available for $249, and also comes in black. This technology is far from new – Roman physician Galen was on to something similar when he slapped electric fish on his patients’ heads. But tDCS is now in the process of going mainstream: there are DIY brain-zapping enthusiasts on YouTube; last year MTV editor Mary H K Choi wrote an amusing but inconclusive tDCS self-experimentation piece for Aeon; and just the other day, Oliver Burkeman included tDCS in his roundup of new brain-enhancing technologies for The Guardian.The manufacturers claim that the tDCS headset will “overclock your brain”, increase your brain’s plasticity and “make your synapses fire faster”. Overclocking sounds a bit dangerous, and rather than your synapses, wouldn’t it be better to make your neurons fire faster? Synapses are the junctions between neurons. We usually say it’s neurons that “fire” and their message is passed across one or more synapses to other neurons using chemicals. Unless the marketing people were talking specifically about electrical synapses? But sorry, I’m rambling. Must focus. “Foc.us”. Need more electric current. Hang on …

L’équipe est parvenue à faire migrer les bactéribots en priorité vers les cellules infectées, et à ne pas modifier les cellules saines. Une analyse immunohistochimique trois jours après l’injection des bactéries, a permis de démontrer que les bactéribots ciblent correctement les cellules tumorales chez les souris.

Les bactéries non toxiques se déplacent dans les tissus ou le sang à l’aide de leur flagelle, jusqu’au ciblage d’une tumeur. Les microstructures éjectent alors le traitement anti-cancéreux qui se répartit à la surface de la tumeur à la vitesse de 5 µm à la seconde.

The Semantic Web may have failed, but higher intelligence is coming to applications anyway, in another form: Cognition-as-a-Service (CaaS). And this may just be the next evolution of the operating system.

CaaS will enable every app to become as smart as Siri in its own niche. CaaS powered apps will be able to think and interact with consumers like intelligent virtual assistants — they will be “cognitive apps.” You will be able to converse with cognitive apps, ask them questions, give them commands — and they will be able to help you complete tasks and manage your work more efficiently.
