Controversial stem-cell treatment resumes for toddler | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it

(ANSA) - Venice, August 24 - Controversial stem-cell treatment on a toddler from Venice, believed necessary to save her life, resumed Friday in northern Italy. Celeste Carrer, the two-year-old at the centre of a controversy involving the treatment, arrived at the Brescia hospital Friday morning after a judge ordered the immediate resumption of her treatment. Infusions of adult stem cells taken from the child's mother resume under the care of pediatrician Dr. Marino Andolina. Over the past year and a half, Celeste has received stem-cell transplants from her mother's bone marrow to treat her spinal muscular atrophy, which causes the toddler's muscles to waste away.

Redécorer son salon ou sa salle à manger sans avoir à passer ses week-ends dans les magasins d'ameublement... C'est désormais possible grâce à ce que l'on appelle la réalité augmentée. Le principe est simple : pour visualiser le meuble en 3D et en temps réel, on prend en photo avec son téléphone mobile ou sa tablette les pièces qu'on souhaite réaménager et, grâce à une application, on place sur l'image le mobilier de son choix en puisant dans le catalogue de meubles de son enseigne préférée.

How To Build A Phononic Computer

How To Build A Phononic Computer | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it

The science of how light interacts with matter is called quantum electrodynamics or QED and the theory on which it is based is one of the crowning achievements of 20th century physics.

Today, it lies at the heart of an emerging technology called circuit-QED, in which photons trapped on a silicon chip are made to interact with superconducting devices called artificial atoms, which have various energy levels just like real atoms.

Such self-awareness would represent a step towards the ultimate goal of thinking robots.

Nico, developed by computer scientists at Yale University, will take the test in the coming months.

The ultimate aim is for Nico to use a mirror to interpret objects around it, in the same way as humans use a rear-view mirror to look for cars.

How augmented reality will change the way we live

How augmented reality will change the way we live | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it

In 1945, The Atlantic Monthly published an article by the American inventor Vannevar Bush. The title of the article was “As We May Think”. It outlined a concept (considered revolutionary at that time) for a futuristic networked machine similar to today’s Internet-enabled devices. This apparatus was called a Memex. The Memex can be seen as a powerful precursor to present-day digital tech. In Bush’s descriptions, we could in fact be reading about modern PCs or tablets:

THE line that separates my mind from the Internet is getting blurry. This has been happening ever since I realized how often it feels as though I know something just because I can find it with Google. Technically, of course, I don’t know it. But when there’s a smartphone or iPad in reach, I know everything the Internet knows. Or at least, that’s how it feels.

You walk into your shower and find a spider. You are not an arachnologist. You do, however, know that one of the following options is possible:

The spider is real and harmless. The spider is real and venomous.

Your next-door neighbor, who dislikes your noisy dog, has turned her personal surveillance spider (purchased from “Drones ‘R Us” for $49.95) loose and is monitoring it on her iPhone from her seat at a sports bar downtown. The pictures of you, undressed, are now being relayed on several screens during the break of an NFL game, to the mirth of the entire neighborhood.
