Sustainable Innovation a Key to Future Markets

Sustainable Innovation a Key to Future Markets | Science Technology Society | Scoop.it

Innovation is the elixir of growth in a competitive globally growing business and technology environment. It is a skill that everyone has, but they think they do not.  

    If you have ever marveled at any person’s creative prowess, guess what, you will be able to create and innovate too. It just takes time. Everyone is born creative. The box of crayons in kindergarten were not restricted to those who possessed potential; because the truth is everyone has potential.

Memory implantation is now officially real

Memory implantation is now officially real | Science Technology Society | Scoop.it

In a study published in the latest issue of Science, a team of researchers led by MIT neuroscientist and Nobel Laureate Susumu Tonegawa demonstrate their ability to isolate and activate engrams in a mouse's memory-rich hippocampus. The researchers go on to implant false memories in the mouse's mind, causing it to recall experiences that have never actually occurred. Here's how they did it.

Tony Sacksteder's insight:

Is this really good news? Though undoubtably more difficult, I'd rather see memories being interpreted and read before the ability to implant them arises.
