Carbon Nanotube Fibers Make Superior Links to Brain

Carbon Nanotube Fibers Make Superior Links to Brain | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
New experiments at Rice demonstrated the biocompatible fibers are ideal candidates for small, safe electrodes that interact with the brain’s neuronal system, according to the researchers. They could replace much larger electrodes currently used in devices for deep brain stimulation therapies in Parkinson’s disease patients.

"Ferran Adrià. Auditando el proceso creativo" - YouTube

Del  29 de octubre 2014 al 01 de marzo del 2015 la Fundación Telefónica presentó la nueva exposición de Ferran Adriá, un proyecto que invita a reflexionar sobre creatividad partiendo del innovador trabajo que desarrolló elBulli. .

Carlos Fosca's insight:

Esta exposición se presentará a mediados de este año en el Perú. Muestra el trabajo más reciente en el que está envuelto este extraordinario cocinero, considerado por académicos del MIT y de la Universidad de Harvard como uno de los innovadores más importantes de nuestro tiempo. Hace una semana tuvimos la oportunidad de conversar con él y que nos contara acerca de su trabajo en elBulliLab, de la decodificación del genoma de la gastronomía con objeto de formalizar la ciencia y la tecnología que está detrás de ella y sobre la metodología que él ha desarrollado y denominado “sapiens” a través de la cual puede investigar cualquier disciplina y conocer a profundidad sus procesos para luego desarrollar el proceso creativo y de innovación.

Genes Involved in Memory and Learning Activated when Professional Musicians Perform

Genes Involved in Memory and Learning Activated when Professional Musicians Perform | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Music performance is known to induce structural and functional changes to the human brain and enhance cognition. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying music performance have been so far unexplored. A Finnish research group has now investigated the effect of music performance (in a 2 hr concert) on the gene expression profiles of professional musicians from Tapiola Sinfonietta (a professional orchestra) and Sibelius-Academy (a music university).

Playing music enhanced the activity of genes involved in dopaminergic neurotransmission, motor function, learning and memory. Some of the up-regulated genes like SNCA, FOS and DUSP1 are known to contribute to song perception and production in songbirds suggesting a potential evolutionary conservation in molecular mechanisms related to sound production across species.

"DroneKit", an API For Building Drone Apps | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
3D Robotics, the largest U.S.-based drone manufacturer, today announced the launch of DroneKit, its open-source API for writing drone apps. Because 3D Robotics has always taken a platform approach, DroneKit will work with any drone that uses its APM autopilot (and while there are quite a few of those on the market, though this won’t work with any of the popular DJI drones, for example). Developers can write web-based drone apps with this new API, as well as mobile apps and apps that run right on the drone itself (written in Python).

"Innovators end up becoming obsessed with taking the world from as it is to as it should be. They become obsessed with making the world better. Many innovators in the for-profit sector focus incessantly on bringing value to market. Others focus incessantly on the core research needed to push the human race forward. Regardless of the sectors we play in, we are all relentlessly focused on solving problems and creating a better world than the one that exists today.

Here’s a list of the greatest innovators of all time, followed by some of the greatest innovators of the last 30 years and the best up and coming Gen Y innovators."

Computers will start listening to us non-stop…like the Star Trek computer | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

"For decades science fiction movies have been imagining the future as one where humans talk to machines just as naturally as they speak to family and friends. In reality, however, using voice to interact with machines has been maddeningly frustrating, with Siri often mistaking “open up my email” for “look up some kale,” for example. This is changing. Increasingly the experience of speaking to your mobile device elicits genuine surprise when Siri or Google Now understands your request and seamlessly executes your request. Put simply, voice recognition in machines is getting very good and is going to get so good that it will completely change the way humans interact with their computing devices. The next few years in voice and speech recognition are going to be exciting. Here are some things to look forward to."
