AI-Powered Virtual Assistant Viv, Made by the Creators of Siri, to be Publicly Demonstrated Next Week

From their profile in the Washington Post:

The stealthy, four-year-old Viv is among the furthest along in an endeavor that many in Silicon Valley believe heralds that next big shift in computing — and digital commerce itself. Over the next five years, that transition will turn smartphones — and perhaps smart homes and cars and other devices — into virtual assistants with supercharged conversational capabilities...Powered by artificial intelligence and unprecedented volumes of data, they could become the portal through which billions of people connect to every service and business on the Internet. It’s a world in which you can order a taxi, make a restaurant reservation and buy movie tickets in one long unbroken conversation — no more typing, searching or even clicking.

Also, the article mentions that +Google​​​ and Facebook have made offers to acquire Viv (viv.ai).

Thanks to Sci-Hub, the academic publishing industry could be unraveling before our very eyes. Sci-Hub, which is based out of Russia, hosts over 50 million academic papers and has amassed a growing global user base.
An exclusive look at data from the controversial web site Sci-Hub reveals that the whole world, both poor and rich, is reading pirated research papers.

VR Music Creation & Immersive Experiences

VR startup WaveVR (thewavevr.com) demos their VR music creation platform that also allows audiences to experience immersive performances. As the company describes:

TheWave is a VR creation platform for aspiring-­to­-professional electronic musicians, enabling them to host shows for the millions of electronic music fans world wide from anywhere, at any time, to as many fans as they want. By democratizing live music, TheWave will disrupt and revitalize the lagging music industry. Think of it as VR Spotify meets Twitch.

There will be a lot of amazing applications for music in the VR and AR space. I could image an AR experience where you see your music as holographic virtual waves adapting as the music is being played or other crazy vizulizations.

​​​​Looking to the future, the next big step will be for the very concept of the “device” to fade away. Over time, the computer itself—whatever its form factor—will be an intelligent assistant helping you through your day. We will move from mobile first to an AI first world.

+Google Self-Driving Car Project​ announces collaboration with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles to produce a new batch of self-driving vehicles by the end of the year
 
We’ve expanded our testing program to a total of four U.S. cities over the last several months, so it’s time to add more vehicles to our fleet. We’re planning to more than double our fleet with the initial addition of about 100 new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivans, and we hope the first few will be on the road by the end of this year.

This collaboration with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is the first time we’ve worked directly with an automaker to create our vehicles. FCA will design the minivans so it’s easy for us to install our self-driving systems, including the computers that hold our self-driving software, and the sensors that enable our software to see what’s on the road around the vehicle. The minivan design also gives us an opportunity to test a larger vehicle that could be easier for passengers to enter and exit, particularly with features like hands-free sliding doors.

In the coming months, our team will collaborate closely with FCA engineers. This experience will help both teams better understand how to create a fully self-driving car that can take you from A to B with the touch of a button. Collaborations like these are an important part of realizing the potential of self-driving technology to improve road safety and make transportation more accessible for millions of people.

SciTech #ScienceSunday Digest - 18/2016.
Permalink here: http://www.scitechdigest.net/2016/05/exoplanet-imaging-dna-nanothermometers.html

Proteins per gene, Exoplanet imaging, DNA nanothermometers, Protein assembly tools, Versatile optogenetics, 3D printing robot spiders, Deep learning, Sensory prosthetic hand, Superfluid helium blackholes, Tissue regeneration.

1. One Gene, Many Proteins
It used to be thought that each gene encoded for and produced just one single protein; this latest ambitious study has blown that paradigm apart and made it very apparent that there is far more nuance and complexity here than first thought https://www.quantamagazine.org/20160426-one-gene-many-proteins/. This thorough study looked at 1,500 human genes, found how many produced multiple proteins, and ran binding studies to 15,000 other proteins to determine whether different proteins from the same gene shared the same or different functions; they generated surprisingly variable results. Different proteins can be formed from the same gene by combining different gene segments (exons) in different sequences. This will ideally be repeated for all genes and proteins. I think the take-away here is simply recognising such seemingly chaotic complexity as a measure of evolutionary robustness.

2. Imaging Exoplanets at 1km Resolution
A new proposal for a space-based telescope positioned 11 times further away than Pluto utilises the gravitational lensing of our Sun to achieve kilometer scale resolution of candidate exoplanets orbiting other stars in our local vicinity https://www.technologyreview.com/s/601331/a-space-mission-to-the-gravitational-focus-of-the-sun/. All you need is (i) a means to block out the Sun’s light, (ii) account for the Sun’s corona, (iii) improve pointing accuracy by an order of magnitude to 0.1 nanoradians, (iv) design a propulsion system able to account for orbital motion, (v) better software and optics to account for blurring, and (vi) filtering light from the planet’s parent star. Do this and you’ll get 10,000 times more light from the exoplanet. Sounds like a worthwhile project. I only wonder about such a telescope being overtaken by technological development during a lengthy commute to 600AU or so.

3. DNA Origami Nanothermometers
Specific DNA sequences can now be used to produce DNA origami structures that are programmed to function as nanothermometers http://www.nouvelles.umontreal.ca/udem-news/news/20160427-chemists-use-dna-to-build-the-worlds-tiniest-thermometer.html. The technique produces DNA structures that fold and unfold at very specific temperatures and adding optical reporter molecules results in 5nm wide structures that produce an easily-detectable signal as a function of temperature. Applications in intra-cellular biology, testing biological machines and enzyme “overheating”, and in nanoelectronics to measure temperatures of very small areas.

4. Advanced Protein-Based Tools
First, a new set of modular proteins has been designed and tested that can be customised to specifically bind arbitrary RNA sequences, and so allowing a versatile mechanism to control and image specific RNAs in the cell http://news.mit.edu/2016/controlling-rna-living-cells-0425. This is a versatile modular code for generating custom proteins able to bind specific RNA sequences from 6 to 18 bases long, with applications in future molecular assembly lines and precise measurements of how often RNA is being translated in the cell. Second, another engineered protein naturally self-assembles carbon buckminster fullerene molecules into ordered lattices and suggests a pathway to proteins able to organise nanomaterials by design http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2016-04/dc-rca042516.php.

5. More Versatile Optogenetics
Optogenetics is increasingly being used to control pain in test animals by using viruses to functionalise neurons responsible for conveying pain and sensation signals, and then using light - either implanted or in this case external to the skin for peripheral neurons - to turn pain transmission on or off in very localised and specific areas https://www.mcgill.ca/newsroom/channels/news/brighter-prospects-chronic-pain-260515. New optogenetics tools now also include the ability to be activated by red light that can penetrate deeper into tissues, and also be combined with other proteins and receptors to drive other cellular processes with light http://ist.ac.at/news-media/news/news-detail/article/red-light-controls-signaling-in-human-cells/6/.

6. 3D Printing with Robot Spiders
A new prototype 3D printing technology involves the use of robotic spiders able to move around with an in-built portable 3D printer, extruding plastic instead of silk in specific patterns to collaboratively build up printed structures - accuracy of localisation is a key hurdle https://www.technologyreview.com/s/601330/robot-spiders-weave-products-from-plastic-in-a-new-spin-on-3-d-printing/. In related 3D printing news the rise of custom-made, personalised, 3D printed medical implants is accelerating and increasing in sophistication https://www.technologyreview.com/s/601305/the-key-to-repairing-your-bones-may-come-out-of-a-printer/.

7. Interesting Deep Learning Developments
A new platform called OpenAI Gym has been launched as a toolkit for developing and comparing reinforcement learning algorithms for applications such as teaching agents to play games and navigate environments https://gym.openai.com/. Movidius has released a neural net accelerator called Fathom on a USB stick that uses only 1 watt of power to run powerful, typically computationally intensive image recognition neural networks with wide applications including allowing every robot to have cutting-edge vision capabilities http://spectrum.ieee.org/tech-talk/computing/embedded-systems/movidius-puts-neural-network-on-a-usb-stick. Meanwhile Drive.ai launched from Stanford’s AI Lab to test autonomous vehicle systems based on deep learning http://spectrum.ieee.org/cars-that-think/transportation/self-driving/driveai-brings-deep-learning-to-selfdriving-cars, and talking of autonomous vehicles self-driving trucks are really building momentum https://www.eutruckplatooning.com/News/495554.aspx?.

8. HAPTIX: The Prosthetic Hand that Can Feel
Here’s a good overview of efforts within DARPA’s HAPTIX program to develop prosthetic hands that allow amputees to regain a sense of touch and sensation, at least through some of the most recent prototypes http://spectrum.ieee.org/biomedical/bionics/creating-a-prosthetic-hand-that-can-feel. The latest prototypes incorporate direct neural interfaces that convey tactile sensory information from sensors located on the prosthetic hand, and resulting in the patient consciously perceiving sensations from those areas as if it were their own hand, and drastically improving sensitive tactile manipulation tasks from 43% to 93% success rate. Slowly getting towards a system that makes the person momentarily forget they lost the hand.

9. Blackholes, Superfluid Helium, & Phonons
New insights into the existence and behaviour of Hawking radiation at Blackhole event horizons are being made with related phenomena involving rapidly rotating superfluid helium and phonons http://www.sciencealert.com/physicists-have-created-a-black-hole-in-the-lab-and-it-could-finally-confirm-the-existence-of-hawking-radiation. The rapidly rotating superfluid helium forms a barrier through which sound waves should not be able to leave, yet the experiment detected phonons, small packets of sound wave energy, leaking out of this sonic blackhole as a sonic analogue to Hawking radiation leaking from a conventional blackhole. The work is undergoing peer review, confirmation, and debate.

10. Regeneration of Brain and Other Tissues
Recent experiments demonstrate that simply inserting a microneedle into the hippocampus of mice with Alzheimer’s Disease helps induce the hippocampus to regenerate, repair damage, and reduce the beta-amyloid plaques characteristic of the disease http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2016-04/ctco-mii042616.php. Another recent study demonstrates the use of a cocktail of nine different chemicals able to transform skin cells into beating heart or neural stem cells (different cocktail for each), that when transplanted into animals helped to regenerate damage and restore normal function to those organs https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/04/160428152117.htm.

Introduction
Life is good. We get to live at one of the most exciting times in history. We are using technology that is absolutely breathtaking. We have mobile devices in our pocket that are more powerful than the best computers just a few years ago and we communicate as a society like none in human history.

At the same time, we have seen only the beginning. I cannot wait for what is on the way. I cannot help but want to participate in this technological revolution.

About me, I am Chief Executive and Innovation Officer at Kitchen Cloud, a food management, healthy eating, and grocery shopping app.

My passion is thinking about ways to improve everyday life. Everything from having a smarter house, improving how we eat, produce and consume energy, to transportation systems (think smarter traffic signals). We can do better and I intend to help us get there.
