Lumbar MRI scan: What can it diagnose and how is it done?

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

Doctors use a lumbar MRI scan to examine a person’s lower spine for problems. An MRI scan uses magnetic fields and radio waves to create an image of the inside of a person’s body. It is a painless and low-risk procedure. Learn more here.

The Future of Flight: AI in the Cockpit

Posted by in categories: drones, military, robotics/AI

The U.S. military is investing billions of dollars each year in developing autonomous technologies that could enable planes, helicopters and drones to fly into some of the world’s most dangerous places, without a human pilot.


AI-empowered systems may soon allow autonomous flying machines to reduce the number of pilots and soldiers working in high-risk environments. Could these flying robots also be firing weapons? WSJ’s Jason Bellini reports, in the latest episode of Moving Upstream.

WATCH: Astronomers spot two fireballs in skies over southern Spain

Posted by in category: space

ASTRONOMERS at an observatory in Central Spain said they spotted two pieces of debris from space falling over the skies of southern Spain yesterday (Sunday).

Scientists at the La Hita observatory in Toledo said the fireballs, one a comet and the other an asteroid, fell within around two hours of each other.

Apollo Astronaut claims Aliens PREVENTED a NUCLEAR WAR on Earth to ensure our existence

Posted by in categories: alien life, engineering, existential risks, military

The write up provides few sources but the phone interview with Mitchell on Fox News is good…


The Sixth Man to walk on the Moon – Edgar Mitchell made fainting claims about alien life when he stated that the existence of the alien visitors is kept a secret from the public, not due to fear of widespread disbelief, rather, a fear that the monetized interests of big business could go into a state of irrelevance if we were given a chance to harbor the technology.

Calorie Restriction Slows Age-related Leaky Gut

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

Researchers from the Kapahi Lab at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging have shown in a new study that increased intestinal permeability is caused by the age-related loss of epithelial cells that form the gut membrane [1].

As we age, the integrity of the gut membrane declines, and it becomes more permeable; this is known as “leaky gut” and is thought to contribute to the background of low-grade chronic inflammation known as inflammaging [2]. One emerging theory is that loss of gut membrane integrity is the origin of inflammaging, the place where age-related chronic inflammation begins. Inflammaging precedes many age-related diseases, including atherosclerosis, arthritis, hypertension, and cancer [3–5].

The new study suggests that caloric restriction, or caloric restriction mimetics, may help to prevent the increase of gut permeability in humans and has the potential to increase healthspan, which is the period of life we spend free from illness.

Harnessing artificial intelligence for sustainability goals

Posted by in categories: business, economics, robotics/AI, sustainability

As ESA’s ɸ-week continues to provoke and inspire participants on new ways of using Earth observation for monitoring our world to benefit the citizens of today and of the future, it is clear that artificial intelligence is set to play an important role.

Taking place at ESA’s centre of Earth observation in Frascati, Italy, on 12–16 November, ɸ-week has drawn hundreds of people from numerous disciplines to explore innovation, new technologies and cross disciplinary cooperation – to see how satellite data coupled with new technologies such as artificial intelligence can bring benefits to science, business, the economy and society at large.

SC18: HPC Demand Surges, Accelerated

Posted by in categories: physics, robotics/AI, supercomputing

NVIDIA’s playing a bigger role in high performance computing than ever, just as supercomputing itself has become central to meeting the biggest challenges of our time.

Speaking just hours ahead of the start of the annual SC18 supercomputing conference in Dallas, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang told 700 researchers, lab directors and execs about forces that are driving the company to push both into “scale-up” computing — focused on large supercomputing systems — as well as “scale-out” efforts, for researchers, data scientists and developers to harness the power of however many GPUs they need.

Bullets that don’t miss, weaponized insects and more: Innovations from DARPA, America’s secret lab

Posted by in categories: government, military, robotics/AI

Bullets that never miss, super soldiers with extreme strength and robot warriors capable of rising up against humans may sound like the stuff of science fiction… but the truth is that they have all already been developed.

A top-secret US government body called the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is behind these space-age innovations, which it has developed as part of its mission to revolutionize the way America fights the wars of the future. (Just think of Q’s lab in James Bond, but for the US army).

Ever since it was established in 1958, DARPA has been the subject of conspiracy theories claiming — among other things — that the agency was covering up UFO landings, trying to develop mind control and working on Earth-shattering super-weapons like death rays.
