The Future Of AI-Driven Meeting Technology

Posted by in categories: futurism, robotics/AI

Early in 2,021 the Stanford Virtual Human Interaction Lab looked at the psychological consequences of spending long days videoconferencing and in virtual meetings. The popularized term “Zoom fatigue,” is the result of maxing out cognitive load and even reducing effectiveness. For all of that investment in remote work technology, senior managers feel there is very little payoff.

The University of North Carolina surveyed 182 senior managers and 65% of them felt meetings kept them from completing their own work, 71% felt meetings were inefficient and unproductive, and 64% felt meetings undercut deep thinking.

As technology-dependent remote workers proliferate, new solutions are coming to the fore that may make both in-person and virtual meetings more productive.

Tiny rare fossil found in 16 million-year-old amber is ‘once-in-a-generation’ find

Posted by in category: futurism

Microscopic tardigrades have thrived on Earth for more than 500 million years, and may well outlive humans, but the tiny creatures don’t leave behind many fossils.

Hiding in plain sight, the third-ever tardigrade fossil on record has been found suspended within a piece of 16-million-year-old Dominican amber.

The find includes a newly named species, Paradoryphoribius chronocaribbeus, as a relative of the modern living family of tardigrades known as Isohypsibioidea. It’s the first tardigrade fossil from the Cenozoic, our current geological era that began 66 million years ago.

Scientists stumble on rheumatoid arthritis vaccine with huge potential

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, futurism

“Much to our happy surprise, the rheumatoid arthritis totally disappeared in animals that received a vaccine,” says Chakravarti. “Sometimes there is no better way than serendipity. We happened to hit a wrong result, but it turned out to be the best result. Those kinds of scientific discoveries are very important in this field.”


Researchers from the University of Toledo have discovered a prospective new treatment for rheumatoid arthritis. The vaccine-based treatment strategy proved successful in preliminary animal studies and the researchers are looking to conduct more clinical trials in the future.

The research hinges around a protein called 14−3−3 zeta. Ritu Chakravarti, lead author on the new study, has been studying 14−3−3 zeta for several years due to its suspected role in a number of autoimmune conditions.
