Biology Confronts Data Complexity

Biology Confronts Data Complexity | CHEMISTRY | Scoop.it

New technologies have launched the life sciences into the age of big data. Biologists must now make sense of their informational windfall.

tatiyana fuentes's insight:

It was difficult to find sequence the human genome, but now it’s comparatively simple to compare genomes of the microorganisms living in our bodies, the ocean, the soil, and everywhere because of the new technologies. Life scientists are embarking on countless other big data projects, including efforts to analyze the genomes of many cancers, to map the human brain, and to develop better biofuels and other crops. Compared to fields like physics, astronomy and computer science that have been dealing with the challenges of massive datasets for decades, the big data revolution in biology has also been quick, leaving little time to adapt. Biologists must overcome a number of hurdles, from storing and moving data to integrating and analyzing it, which will require a substantial cultural shift.

The very definition of 'complexity'!

Tratar la vida como un cumulo de datos... qué se yo... estamos yendo a eso.

Human-like AI is becoming a reality
A major milestone is reached in the field of AI this year as a computer passes the Turing Test for the first time.** This test...
tatiyana fuentes's insight:

Information technology has reached the stage where an independent judge is literally unable to tell which is the real human and which is not. For example of the majority of retail environments are now cashless. Automated systems have made it possible for customers to shop with little or no physical interaction with a checkout.

Oh, The Guilt! Why You Blame Yourself For Everything When You're Depressed

Oh, The Guilt! Why You Blame Yourself For Everything When You're Depressed | CHEMISTRY | Scoop.it
A new study shows that people who have been depressed have connection gaps in their brains, which explains the tendency to blame yourself for all that’s wrong.

Via Suelynne Brown
tatiyana fuentes's insight:

The brains of depressed people have a “gap” ion the communication between two key areas, which may explain why depression is so hard to overcome, and relapse so common. Whether depression causes these brain differences to develop, or the brain differences lead to the development of depression is unclear. This explains why talk therapy or cognitive behavior therapy, which teaches a person to replace old, destructive thought patterns with new, more productive ones, can be effective ways to treat depression.
