Scientists Create a Self-Replicating Reproductive Genome in the Lab

Scientists Create a Self-Replicating Reproductive Genome in the Lab | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

One main part of life is the ability for processes to reproduce themselves. This means that a chemical system has to be maintained. Up until now, this was only ever possible naturally.
Now, a team of scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry has found a way for a system to regenerate parts of its own DNA and protein building blocks, all on its own.

Five Principles of Innovation Measurement

Five Principles of Innovation Measurement | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

What gets measured gets managed. Innovation is not serendipity; it’s a managed process of transforming novel ideas to achieve their business value. You can only manage what you measure.
Innovation is a management process which needs to be measured for making continuous improvement. Given the dynamic nature of digital organization and the complex mix of its resources and business factors, a well-defined set of innovation performance metrics needs to be considered in areas such as revenue sustainability, customer satisfaction, knowledge accumulation, brand reputation or price elasticity, etc.

Why “De-growth” Shouldn’t Scare Businesses

Why “De-growth” Shouldn’t Scare Businesses | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

The concept of degrowth dates back to the 1970s, when a group of French intellectuals led by the philosopher Andre Gorz proposed a simple idea: In response to mounting environmental and social problems, they suggested that the only real solution was to produce and consume less — to shrink our economies to cope with the carrying capacity of our planet. The proposal was considered by many at the time to be too radical.

Light Sails and Supernovae Can Help Us Reach the Speed of Light | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

The gigantic stars that produce a supernova live for millions of years, and it's extremely hard to predict when exactly they will blow. Eta Carinae — another giant star nearing death — has a lifetime of several million years. China has the longest continuous recorded history in the world, but it's only 3,500 years old. For supernovae, the scale for years is millions.

3D printing gets bigger, faster and stronger

3D printing gets bigger, faster and stronger | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

The field is still far from delivering on early visions of bringing mass manufacturing into people’s homes. For now, sophisticated printers are too expensive to appeal to non-specialists. But 3D printing has come a long way in the past 20 years. Todd remembers people touring his lab in the early 2000s to see his technique to fuse specks of metal dust together to grow parts. Compared with the conventional milling machines and metal-cutting systems in neighbouring labs, his 3D-printing machines struck visitors as a complete oddity. “It was like we were some sort of a dog playing a piano in a bar,” he recalls. Now, for many firms, that trick is standard practice.

  • But many retailers pursue AI as one-off initiatives running in functional silos—seventy percent know how to pilot, but are struggling to scale AI
  • Retailers need a corporate strategy, process and governance to guide investments and a path to scale
  • Only then can they realize AI’s true potential and transform into strategic, data-driven organizations.

“A Trillion Trees” is a great idea—that could become a dangerous climate distraction

“A Trillion Trees” is a great idea—that could become a dangerous climate distraction | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

It’s great that trees are having a moment. Nations absolutely should plant and protect as many as possible—to absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, provide habitat for animals, and restore fragile ecosystems. [...]
But it’s also a limited and unreliable way of addressing climate change. We have a terrible track record on carrying out reforestation efforts to date. We’d have to plant and protect a massive number of trees for decades to offset even a fraction of global emissions. And years of efforts can be nullified by droughts, wildfires, disease, or deforestation elsewhere.

This Startup Is Using AI To Transform Industrial Quality Inspections

This Startup Is Using AI To Transform Industrial Quality Inspections | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

Artificial intelligence (AI) is all the rage now. I like to say it’s both one of the most overhyped and most underestimated concepts out there. Overhyped, because it seems that pretty much anything anybody is doing now has claims of using AI. (The AI-enabled robotic pizza maker struck me as pretty nonsensical.) Underestimated, because even with all that, I don’t think we’ve really begun to understand the technological revolutions AI can unleash.

Council Post: Innovation Starts With EPIC Conversations | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

Innovation doesn’t start with an idea. It starts with a problem. Sometimes, those problems are easy to observe and understand, but, more often, those problems are multi-layered and nuanced. As a result, you need a multi-layered and nuanced approach to understanding them.

Silicon Valley has long been known for its “ask forgiveness, not permission” and “move fast and ­break things” attitudes, but lately it’s had to reckon with the consequences of that mindset. Examples from Uber to WeWork suggest that this modus operandi exposes fast-growing firms to significant risks.

Chip Recreates Blood-Brain Barrier to Study Delivery of Drugs to Brain | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

The blood-brain barrier is one of the greatest challenges that modern medicine has to overcome if we want to be able to fight neurological diseases using drugs. Animal models serve a purpose, but they’re not very good at replicating the human blood-brain barrier (BBB) as results often don’t translate during clinical trials. A better way to study the BBB is needed and researchers at Georgia Tech have now developed a chip that accurately replicates its function using the human cells that form this important part of our anatomy.

The Challenges of Innovation

The Challenges of Innovation | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

Innovation. It’s a good idea, right? In fact, it’s a great idea. If it delivers value. Hands up who’s seen those pet projects – weeks, months, years of beard-scratching over a concept. A concept that no one completely understands, and no one seems accountable for. So why is it that innovation so often goes nowhere? Why does so much time, effort and money pour into having-a-go at innovation? I think the word itself might be to blame. Clearly people think innovation is a lofty pursuit of something out of reach, exotic, unique, the stuff of legends. They imagine that when they track this thing down and tame it there’ll be a fanfare, fireworks and fame. So, they go big. They dress it up like they’re going after the Loch Ness Monster. They assemble the team, kit themselves out and off they go. The rest of us are left standing, full of hope yet somehow wondering whether the thing they’re pursuing is actually real. Or not.
