Asymmetrically strained quantum dots with non-fluctuating single-dot emission spectra and subthermal room-temperature linewidths

Asymmetrically strained quantum dots with non-fluctuating single-dot emission spectra and subthermal room-temperature linewidths | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

The application of colloidal semiconductor quantum dots as single-dot light sources still requires several challenges to be overcome. Recently, there has been considerable progress in suppressing intensity fluctuations (blinking) by encapsulating an emitting core in a thick protective shell. However, these nanostructures still show considerable fluctuations in both emission energy and linewidth. Here we demonstrate type-I core/shell heterostructures that overcome these deficiencies.

A 3D Printed Sponge to Soak Up Chemo Drugs

A 3D Printed Sponge to Soak Up Chemo Drugs | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

To kill cancer cells, chemo essentially poisons them. The drug cocktail used in chemotherapy is generally injected into the bloodstream, where it courses through the body ready to take on the tumor. And the rest of the body, because poison isn’t actually good for healthy bits, either. What if there was a way to target those toxins to the tumor and help keep the rest of the body free of them? Filtering out the drugs before they can travel too far away from the tumor proved an idea worth examination.

Many of the top websites in 1998 were basically news aggregators or search portals, which are easy concepts to understand. Today, brand touch-points are often spread out between devices (e.g. mobile apps vs. desktop site) and a myriad of services and sub-brands (e.g. Facebook’s constellation of apps). As a result, the world’s biggest websites are complex, interconnected web properties.

AIs Continue to Act in Unpredictable Ways, Should We Panic?

AIs Continue to Act in Unpredictable Ways, Should We Panic? | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

This development has added to a growing body of evidence that the fears over an unpredictable artificial intelligence may be well-founded.
As AIs continue to perform tasks in novel ways that humans simply never anticipate, how do we protect ourselves from the consequences of what we often cannot see coming?

Beeyond's insight:

In a recent report, researchers from Google claim that their artificial intelligence agent has deliberately hidden data from them in order to perform a required task in a way that appears on its face to be cheating. [...] How do we protect ourselves from the consequences of what we often cannot see coming?

You Won’t Hear This Word On The Street

You Won’t Hear This Word On The Street | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

SilentVoice relies on a different way of speaking and a different way of picking up that sound. Instead of traditional dictation in which we exhale while facing a microphone, it is necessary to place the microphone less than two millimeters from the mouth, usually against the lips, and use ingressive speech which is just whispering while inhaling. The advantage of ingressive over egressive speech is that without air being blown over the microphone, the popping of air gusts is eliminated. With practice, it is as efficient as normal speaking but that practice will probably involve a few dizzy spells from inhaling more than necessary.

what3words Addressing System for Medical Uses | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

Modern medicine relies a great deal on advanced technologies, but some of these technologies introduce new complications and existing systems muddy the waters further. GPS, for example, is highly accurate, but GPS coordinates are difficult to use. Old fashioned addresses, on the other hand, are pretty easy to remember, but they can be ambiguous, are used differently around the world, and are only assigned to buildings. In disaster situations, addresses are often useless and people end up reverting to descriptives to identify locations.
