A Seattle-based nonprofit launched to provide digital health solutions for poorer countries is applying its expertise to help with COVID-19 testing.

Audere is building software for administering rapid result COVID tests that can be integrated into products being developed by U.S. manufacturers that use saliva or nasal swab samples.

“There is a critical need for rapid testing,” said Philip Su, CEO and founder of Audere. People are increasingly realizing that the widespread distribution of a vaccine is still many months away. The availability of accurate, inexpensive tests that provide results in minutes can help control the spread of the virus in the meantime, Su said.

The tests — known generally as rapid diagnostic tests or RDTs — can have high rates of failure, though the basic concept is simple. Imagine

(Bloomberg) — Ken Kutaragi, the legendary inventor of the PlayStation gaming console, is taking on one of the hardest jobs in robotics. And he’s getting paid nothing to do it.

The founder of Sony Corp.’s gaming business is the new chief executive officer of Ascent Robotics Inc., a Tokyo-based artificial intelligence startup. Kutaragi, 70, wants to make affordable robots that can safely move around and do physical work alongside humans in factories and logistics centers, and aims to have a working prototype in about a year. He said he receives no salary to save precious capital.

Scientists have built a computer ‘brain circuit’, or artificial neural network, that mirrors human decision-making processes and sheds light on how circuits might be altered in psychiatric diseases, a new study published today in eLife reports.

The model identifies a potential mechanism for the impaired decision making that is commonly seen in schizophrenia, involving the reduced activity of molecules in the brain called NDMA receptors. These results provide new insight that may inform the development of future treatments for neuropsychiatric conditions.

“A major challenge in psychiatry is to relate changes that occur at nerve synapses in the brain to the cognitive processes that cause symptoms of disorders such as schizophrenia,” explains lead author Dr. Sean Cavanagh, who is an MBPhD student at the UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology, London, UK. “Computational modeling of brain circuits can fill in these gaps. By altering the circuit model

First-time Author’s ‘Kissing The Coronavirus’ Book on Amazon is Making The Internet LOL

The novel coronavirus is the buzz word for the world right now. We are reading about it, watching it in the news and even eating ‘sandesh’ inspired by it.

While all that is still understandable, a first-time author has gone ahead and written a love story about the killer virus, taking it up several notches higher. The ‘steamy’ love story is titled ‘Kissing the Coronavirus’.

Now, we won’t know much until we have read the story in detail, but here’s what Amazon, which is selling the book, has written in its description of the book.

“Dr Alexa Ashingtonford is a part of a crack team of scientists tasked with finding the cure to the devastating Coronavirus. Little did she know she would end up falling in love with it, in this steamy viral-erotica.”

Making stuff from scratch in the wild

May 10, 2020 | technology | No Comments

I bought a new property to shoot primitive technology videos on. The new area is dense tropical rainforest with a permanent creek. Starting completely from scratch, my first project was to build a simple dome hut and make a fire. First, I took some wood, Abroma mollis, for fire sticks. I knapped a small stone blade and used it to strip the fire sicks. Palm fibre was then taken for the tinder. The fire stick kit was then placed under a palm leaf to keep it out of the rain.

Next, a stone from the creek was fashioned into a simple hand axe. This was used to cut a staff that was used to clear a path to the hut location. The location for the hut was a clearing densely crowded by native raspberry. This was then cleared using the staff and a small 2.5 m circle was levelled

This book so well -written that it actually condenses and easily organizes the insane amount of information that is already available online about making passive income. The problem with the internet, and making money online – is that everyone tries to take something simple and make it complex so they can make it “their own” and rebrand it to sell it to people like me.

But not this book. This was a straight shooting, get your hands a little dirty and set up your successful website for making money online. It took all the “noise” that is available out there and easily condensed it for people like me and you to understand and achieve success from. It’s a top quality – easy read book with great ACTIONABLE content.

Another reason I liked Mr. Omar’s book is that he doesn’t try to get you to sign up for paid services. A … Read More

‘Technology is a useful servant but a dangerous master.’ The famous saying has indeed incited even the tech-savvy crowd to step back and to think before racing into the realm of automation, mechanization, robotics, and computers. A modern term to specifically refer to these evolutions would be ‘digitalization.’ Starting right from the daily chores to currency, every aspect is radically fitting in the robe of digitalization. Interestingly, the revolution in technology is at its most prominent state in the current century more than ever before. The twenty-first century is thus, no wonder known as the era of innovation.

The influence of technology is brushing all industrial sectors, significantly improving not only how things used to function but even how humans used to think, act, and execute plans twenty to thirty years back from now. Considering this aspect, one of the aspects that technology has considerably influenced is’ leadership’ in the … Read More
