Gilles Vranckx | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it

Born in 1975, Brussels inhabitant Gilles Vranckx studied the animation, the comic strip and the graphic design, in particular to the College Sint-Lukas, before cofounding the mechanical workshop Prop. Influenced by the advertising posters of the 50s ' and 60 ' or the works of Kent William, Edward Hopper, Ashley Wood and Rene Gruau, he also finds in the cinema a big source of inspiration. His heroines concentrate in a plan the various representations of the feminine silhouettes realized during these last decades, Sexy girl de Petty and Elvgren in sulphurous models of Manara.

In this special guest feature, Daniel Gutierrez from insideBIGDATA offers up his 2017 roundup industry predictions from Big Data thought leaders. "AI, ML, and NLP innovations have really exploded this past year but despite a lot of hype, most of the tangible applications are still based on specialized AI and not general AI. We will continue to see new use-cases of such specialized AI across verticals and key business processes. These use-cases would primarily be focused on the evolutionary process improvement side of the digital transformation."

Synthetic biology allows scientists to design genetic circuits that can be placed in cells, giving them new functions such as producing drugs or other useful molecules. However, as these circuits become more complex, the genetic components can interfere with each other, making it difficult to achieve more complicated functions.

#RFID chips are being inserted into products but should they also be inserted in people? via @forbes @competia | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it

The practical appeal of an RFID implant, in theory, is quick authentication that’s faster, cheaper and more reliable than other biometrics like thumbprints or facial scans. When the chip is hit with a radio frequency signal, it emits a unique identifier number that functions like a long, unguessable password. Implantees like Andrew imagine the ability to unclutter their pockets of keys and keycards and instead access their cars, computers, and homes with with a mere wave of the hand.

Farid Mheir's curator insight, December 9, 2016 3:48 PM

Recent announcements of fully automated, no cash register no lineups Amazon stores, have made the use of RFID chips and other digital identification techniques the topic of discussion again.

 

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Digital transformation requires bridging the physical world with the digital one. One of the simplest way to do so is to attached radio frequency beacons (RFID chips) to products so that you can detect their presence and make inventory management and checkout faster, easier and more accurate. Pushing this idea forward of course means that humans too should be tagged to help identify them in the digital world. Not only does this open a see of useful application - unlocking doors without a key, tracking location inside a building, removing the need for password - it also raises concerns about privacy and identity management. Fun times ahead!

Implantable device targets cancer, other illnesses with controlled long-term drug delivery | KurzweilAI | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it

A new drug-delivery system based on an tiny implantable capsule could “revolutionize” the delivery of medicine to treat cancer and a host of other diseases and ailments, according to researchers at The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA).

“The problem with most drug-delivery systems is that you have a specific minimum dosage of medicine that you need to take for it to be effective,” said Lyle Hood, assistant professor of mechanical engineering. “There’s also a limit to how much of the drug can be present in your system so that it doesn’t make you sick.” So a person who needs frequent doses of a specific medicine is required to take a pill every day or visit a doctor for injections.

Trump Picks Climate Denier and 'Fossil Fuel Industry Puppet' to Head EPA | Reynard Loki | AlterNet.org

Trump Picks Climate Denier and 'Fossil Fuel Industry Puppet' to Head EPA | Reynard Loki | AlterNet.org | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it

President-elect Trump is naming Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to serve as administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Oklahoma's Republican top cop is a close ally of the fossil fuel industry, which is very at home in the Sooner State. Oklahoma is the nation's third-largest producer of natural gas, fifth-largest producer of crude oil and ranks second in number of active drilling rigs—and the state ranks last among all states in renewable energy usage. The Oklahoma Oil & Gas Association is America's oldest energy trade organization.

Pruitt is worryingly cozy with the fossil fuel industry, which has given him almost $350,000 since 2002. According to the New York Times, a letter from Pruitt to the EPA accusing federal regulators of overestimating the amount of air pollution produced by fossil fuel companies drilling new natural gas wells in Oklahoma was apparently written by lawyers for Devon Energy, one of his state's largest oil and gas firms. The Times named Pruitt near the center of a "secretive alliance" of Republican attorneys general and "some of the nation’s top energy producers to push back against the Obama regulatory agenda."

As Oklahoma AG, Pruitt has also played a large role in the coalition of the Republican state AGs' counter effort against AGs in other states who are investigating ExxonMobil, and joined 27 other states in a lawsuit to block the Obama administration’s Clean Power Plan.
