[VIDEOS] On The Edge of Glory: The World’s Greenest Office Building

"The Edge office building, home to Deloitte’s Amsterdam headquarters, has been named the greenest building in the world. Not only is the Edge green, but it is also at the cutting edge of new working models in which there are no set workspaces for employees. When employees do choose a space to work in, they can individually adjust climate and lighting using a smartphone app.

The building was designed by PLP Architecture, London, and includes a 44,132 ft.² (4,100 m²) rooftop solar panel installation as well as Philips’ ethernet-powered LED lighting.

Not only was the Edge ranked the greenest building in the world, but it also earned the highest BREEAM rating in history. BREEAM is the world’s leading design and assessment method for sustainable buildings. With a score of 98.36, the Edge beat One Embankment Place in London.

The following video shows the Edge and why it is so special:

Mayo Clinic Finds 3D Printing Essential Moving Medicine Forward for Complex Surgeries

"The Mayo Clinic is probably the single most famous medical facility in the world. It began in 1863 as the medical practice of William Worral Mayo in Rochester, Minnesota and under the direction of his sons William James Mayo and Charles Horace Mayo it became a medical clinic that has since grown to employ nearly 60,000 people in campuses located in Arizona and Florida in addition to the original Rochester location. The clinics see approximately 1.3 million patients each year from over 135 countries around the world and work to address some of the most difficult cases in medicine..."

Xray Triggered Nano-Bubbles To Target Cancer

"Innovative drug filled nano-bubbles, able to be successfully triggered in the body by X-rays, have been developed by researchers, paving the way for a new range of cancer treatments for patients.

The tiny bubbles, known as liposomes, are commonly used in pharmacology to encapsulate drugs, making them more effective in the treatment of disease. Researchers have now been able to engineer these liposomes to discharge their drug cargo on-demand, once activated by standard X-rays. Initial testing has shown this technique to be highly efficient in killing bowel cancer cells..."

DeepMind Created a Test to Measure an AI’s Ability to Reason

"AI has gotten pretty good at completing specific tasks, but it’s still a long way from having general intelligence, the kind of all around smarts that would let AI navigate the world the same way humans or even animals do.

One of the key elements of general intelligence is abstract reasoning — the ability to think beyond the “here and now” to see more nuanced patterns and relationships and to engage in complex thought. On Wednesday, researchers at DeepMind — a Google subsidiary focused on artificial intelligence — published a paper detailing their attempt to measure various AIs’ abstract reasoning capabilities, and to do so, they looked to the same tests we use to measure our own..."

Ireland Expected To Become World's First Country To Divest From Fossil Fuels

"The Republic of Ireland took a crucial step Thursday toward becoming the first country in the world to divest from fossil fuels. Lawmakers in the Dail, the lower house of parliament, advanced a bill requiring the Irish government's more than $10 billion national investment fund to sell off stakes in coal, oil, gas and peat — and to do so "as soon as practicable."..."

Using Patient-Specific 3D Printed Surgical Guides for Total Knee Replacement

The staff at Orthoparc in the Netherlands has figured out another way to help create and deliver the best in patient centered care. Using 3D technology, they have developed a method of patient-centered total knee replacement that allows a patient to walk in, in the morning, and walk out that same day. Such a possibility requires a highly interconnected team of specialists working together to ensure that not only does the patient get the knee replacement they need, but their psychological, nutritional, and whole health needs are met as well.

One component of this is the integration of 3D printed, patient-specific surgical guides that take the uncertainty out of the procedure itself..."

This sun-chasing robot looks after the plant on its head

"Back in school I remember learning that plants are “heliotropic,” meaning they grow towards light. I always found this oddly touching; as if those green tendrils stretching out to the sun proved the plant itself was yearning to live. And why not? That is why they do it.

But what if plants could do more than stretch? What if they could move like animals, independently of their roots? Evolution hasn’t got there yet, but it turns out humans can help. Chinese roboticist and entrepreneur Sun Tianqi has made it happen: modding a six-legged toy robot made by his company Vincross to carry a potted plant on its back.

The resulting plant-robot hybrid looks like a leafy crab or a robot Bulbasaur. It moves towards the sunshine when needed, and retreats to shade when it’s had enough..."
