Human microchipping: I've got you under my skin Sydney Morning Herald Cybernetics scientist Dr Mark Gasson of the University of Reading, in Britain, became the first human to be infected with a computer virus, after he injected himself with a...
One Kind of Supersymmetry Shown to Emerge Naturally The UCSB Current While the Standard Model governing the ordinary world is not supersymmetric, it is often theorized that the more “fundamental” theory relevant to very hot systems, such as those...
In a mobile/cloud-centric health ecosystem, geography will no longer present an obstacle to deliver diagnosis or even treatment. The constraints of physical location will eventually mitigate the hard and high costs of maintaining hospital facilities.
When disease strikes in the developing world, like the current Ebola outbreak in Guinea, doctors, nurses and epidemiologists from international organizations fly in to help.
So do anthropologists.
Understanding local customs – and fears – can go a long way in getting communities to cooperate with international health care workers, says Barry Hewlett, a medical anthropologist at Washington State University.

We live in an era of accelerating change, when scientific and technological advancements are arriving rapidly. As a result, we are developing a new language to describe our civilization as it evolves. Here are 20 terms and concepts that you'll need to navigate our future.
Does Physics Have a Problem? Scientific American “I'm still hanging tough, hoping for supersymmetry,” said John Ellis of King's College London at the time, referring to the theory of matter that many physicists thought would supplant the Standard...
Why nobody can tell whether the world's biggest quantum computer is a ... Quartz For the past several years, a Canadian company called D-Wave Systems has been selling what it says is the largest quantum computer ever built.
After receiving an implant that electrically stimulates the spinal cord, four paraplegic men can now voluntarily move their previously paralyzed legs. It's a breakthrough that's poised to revolutionize the treatment of paralysis.
The world of synthetic biology is coming to the world of wastewater treatment. Synthetic biology was a huge role to play in thinking of wastewater as a resource versus a waste.
Pilus Energy's genetically enhanced bacteria, also known as bacterial robots ("BactoBot(TM)"), that remediate water, harvest direct current ("DC") electricity, and produce economically important gases and chemicals. This technology was originally developed by Cincinnati-based Pilus Energy and University of Cincinnati microbiology professor Daniel Hassett.
There is a rapidly expanding literature on the application of complex networks in economics that focused mostly on stock markets. In this paper, we discuss an application of complex networks to study international business cycles.
We construct complex networks based on GDP data from two data sets on G7 and OECD economies. Besides the well-known correlation-based networks, we also use a specific tool for presenting causality in economics, the Granger causality. We consider different filtering methods to derive the stationary component of the GDP series for each of the countries in the samples. The networks were found to be sensitive to the detrending method. While the correlation networks provide information on comovement between the national economies, the Granger causality networks can better predict fluctuations in countries’ GDP. By using them, we can obtain directed networks allows us to determine the relative influence of different countries on the global economy network. The US appears as the key player for both the G7 and OECD samples.
