The use of artificial intelligence (AI) to process medical sensor data is enabling earlier detection and more effective therapies for cancer, the mitigation of epileptic seizers with implants, and the hope of using similar implants for Parkinson's disease and other neurological maladies, as well as lowering the costs of hospitalization overall.

Software-defined radios allowed the rescuers to communicate, when simple radio technology could not.

Additive manufacturing (AM), also known as rapid prototyping and three-dimensional (3D) printing, is enabling on-demand customization of components to start making major contributions to the manufacturing supply chain, giving rise to a new era of personalized items, the market for which, together with replacement parts and prototyping, could total over $160 billion by 2026.

Robots are after your job, but the worse part is that fact alone is scaring people so much that their productivity is already dropping, making robots and even better candidate to replace you, according to researchers. Here's the facts:

We stand at the precipice of the fourth Industrial Revolution. The first Industrial Revolution saw the advent of steam-powered mechanization), the second the utilization of electricity to run production machines, and the third the use of computers to control production automation. The fourth Industrial Revolution is being spurred by combining artificial intelligence (AI) with robotic devices.

Unfortunately, this latest evolution threatens almost 24 million U.S. workers—both blue and white collar—with unemployment, according to New York City-based market research firm CB Insights, which cites the jobs of cooks, servers, cleaners, movers, warehouse workers, retail workers, truck drivers, construction laborers, nurses, and health aides as being at greatest risk of elimination due to automation.

Unhackable computers are possible—just read the casino operator’s comment at the bottom of the story. However, people are just too lazy—even the military. DARPA’s effort is admirable, but it assumed Internet connectivity. I personally only have one computer online on which I keep nothing sensitive like passwords, which I reserve for my offline computer sitting right next to me, but impossible to hack unless you break into my house!

IBM Q—hosting quantum computers in data centers around the world—start with 20-qubits today, but evolve to a 50-qubit quantum computer that is faster than any supercomputer today, but accessible to anyone via IBM’s Cloud.

Copper-is-forever contend all the semiconductor makers except Intel, which is proposing a switch to cobalt. Is Intel the black-sheep or the futuristic visionary?
