Updated – Worldwide Press for “Human Brain/Cloud Interface”

“We’ll have nanobots that… connect our neocortex to a synthetic neocortex in the cloud. Our thinking will be a…. biological and non-biological hybrid.” Ray Kurzweil, TED 2014 UPDATE - August 6 2019 Since it's publication on March 29 2019 in Frontiers in Neuroscience, the "Human Brain/Cloud Interface" paper has attracted considerable attention and [...]

Six paths to the nonsurgical future of brain-machine interfaces

DARPA has awarded funding to six organizations to support the Next-Generation Nonsurgical Neurotechnology (N3) program, first announced in March 2018. Battelle Memorial Institute, Carnegie Mellon University, Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), Rice University, and Teledyne Scientific are leading multidisciplinary teams to develop high-resolution, bidirectional brain-machine interfaces for use [...]

Neuromorphic Computing – Breakthrough Innovations for Society or Pandora’s Box?

Source: Bold Business. Follow them on twitter. Though you may not realize it, more than 40,000 computer-brain interfaces have already been employed in healthcare today. Thus, to say computer-brain interfaces are something new would be inaccurate. But compared to what the future of neuromedicine holds, these types of interfaces are quite rudimentary. The real [...]

Transforming advanced nanoscience data into interactive art

It is hard to imagine just how small one nanometer—one-billionth of a meter—really is. Ten hydrogen atoms in a row are one nanometer long. For perspective, consider that a sheet of paper is 75,000 nanometers thick. A red blood cell is 7,000 nanometers across. A typical virus is about 100 nanometers wide, and a [...]

Microrobots show promise for treating tumors

Targeting medical treatment to an ailing body part is a practice as old as medicine itself. A Band-Aid is placed on a skinned knee. Drops go into itchy eyes. A broken arm goes into a cast. But often what ails us is inside the body and is not so easy to reach. In such [...]

Nanoparticles Heal Spinal Cord Injuries

The zealous immune response to injuries is known to cause paralyzing damage in spinal cord injury (SCI). Engineers have now created unique nanoparticles that redirect immune cells away from the spinal cord, promoting regeneration that helped restore spinal cord function in mice. The study was funded by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and [...]

New Microfluidic Chip Offers Superior Identification of Miniscule Blood Residues

Scientists at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) have designed a new chip device that provides excellent identification of minuscule blood residues for forensic applications. Criminologists detect microscopic blood drops, as well as DNA, proteins, and low hydrogen peroxide concentrations, using luminol. Not all these can be seen by the naked eye but they [...]

Bacteria-killing gel heals itself while healing you

McMaster researchers have developed a novel new gel made entirely from bacteria-killing viruses. The anti-bacterial gel, which can be targeted to attack specific forms of bacteria, holds promise for numerous beneficial applications in medicine and environmental protection. Among many possibilities, it could be used as an antibacterial coating for implants and artificial joints, as [...]

Quantum technology could revolutionise the detection and treatment of diseases

When you hear the word ‘quantum’, you may imagine physicists working on a new ground breaking theory. Or perhaps you’ve read about quantum computers and how they might change the world. But one lesser-known field is also starting to reap the benefits of the quantum realm – medicine. As part of the EU’s Quantum [...]

Google AI on Track to Revolutionize Medicine

From an article by Jon Markman at thestreet.com: Using data, machine learning and AI, Alphabet managers are incubating vibrant new businesses in pharma and tech. One or more of these will become exciting stand-alone businesses. This might seem a particularly bad time to be investing in big tech. President Trump said Tuesday morning that his administration [...]
