Live 3D Organ Holograms Give an Unprecedented View to Surgeons

Live 3D Organ Holograms Give an Unprecedented View to Surgeons | Systems Theory | Scoop.it

An Israeli firm (Real View Imaging) has developed 3D holographic imaging technology that allows doctors to see a patient’s anatomy ”floating” in mid-air during real time medical procedures. The company says successful trials of its system demonstrate that science fiction has become science fact.

Processors That Work Like Brains Will Accelerate Artificial Intelligence

Processors That Work Like Brains Will Accelerate Artificial Intelligence | Systems Theory | Scoop.it

A new breed of computer chips that operate more like the brain may be about to narrow the gulf between artificial and natural computation—between circuits that crunch through logical operations at blistering speed and a mechanism honed by evolution to process and act on sensory input from the real world. Advances in neuroscience and chip technology have made it practical to build devices that, on a small scale at least, process data the way a mammalian brain does. These “neuromorphic” chips may be the missing piece of many promising but unfinished projects in artificial intelligence, such as cars that drive themselves reliably in all conditions, and smartphones that act as competent conversational assistants.

From bacterial robots to synthetic blood cells: The biotech boom at British universities - The Independent | Systems Theory | Scoop.it

Synthetic biology is unlocking the extraordinary potential of genetic code, inventing powerful new living devices and reinventing existing biological processes. As genomes are mapped, combinations of genes that perform useful functions are continually pinpointed, borrowed, altered and recombined to develop new variants of life with endless possibilities.

Integrated quantum circuit is most complex ever

Integrated quantum circuit is most complex ever | Systems Theory | Scoop.it

Researchers in the UK, Japan and the Netherlands have fabricated the most functionally complex integrated quantum circuit ever from a single material, capable of generating photons and entangling them at the same time. The circuit consists of two photon sources on a silicon chip that interfere quantum mechanically. Its inventors say that it could be used in quantum information processing applications and in complex on-chip quantum optics experiments.

The Mission to De-Centralize the Internet

The Mission to De-Centralize the Internet | Systems Theory | Scoop.it

luiy's curator insight, January 2, 2014 8:09 AM

Though Snowden has raised the profile of privacy technology, it will be up to engineers and their allies to make that technology viable for the masses. “Decentralization must become a viable alternative,” said Cook, the ArkOS developer, “not just to give options to users that can self-host, but also to put pressure on the political and corporate institutions.”

 

“Discussions about innovation, resilience, open protocols, data ownership and the numerous surrounding issues,” said Redecentralize’s Bolychevsky, “need to become mainstream if we want the Internet to stay free, democratic, and engaging.”

Fàtima Galan's curator insight, January 3, 2014 4:29 AM

"Paul Baran, predicted the rise of a centralized “computer utility” that would offer computing much the same way that power companies provide electricity. Today, that model is largely embodied by the information empires of Amazon, Google, and other cloud-computing companies. Like Baran anticipated, they offer us convenience at the expense of privacy."

“Discussions about innovation, resilience, open protocols, data ownership and the numerous surrounding issues,” said Redecentralize’s Bolychevsky, “need to become mainstream if we want the Internet to stay free, democratic, and engaging.”

Why the wearable explosion is driving tech and fashion convergence

Why the wearable explosion is driving tech and fashion convergence | Systems Theory | Scoop.it

In an age where fashion continually romps through society’s wardrobes and technology governs our everyday lives, we’ve finally reached a crossroads where industry boundaries between apparel brands and digital platforms have started to blur. And consumer wearables—the bridge between these two worlds—are the catalyst for that convergence.

With both the fashion industry and technology industry thriving it only makes sense that they come together and use their powers for good. This article talks about the convergence of the two industries and how they are turning into one - with wearable technology.
