New Technology Gives AI Human-Like Eyes

Eye Scan Illustration

Researchers at the University of Central Florida have created AI technology that mimics the human eye.

The technology might result in highly developed artificial intelligence that can instantly understand what it sees and has uses in robotics and self-driving cars.

Researchers at the University of Central Florida (UCF) have built a device for artificial intelligence that replicates the retina of the eye.

The research might result in cutting-edge AI that can identify what it sees right away, such as automated descriptions of photos captured with a camera or a phone. The technology could also be used in robots and self-driving vehicles.

The technology, which is described in a recent study published in the journal ACS Nano, also performs better than the eye in terms of the range of wavelengths it can perceive, from ultraviolet to visible light and on to the infrared spectrum.

Its ability to combine three different operations

A New Technology Could Help Solve a DNA Mystery

DNA Technology Concept

Scientists were able to examine tens of millions of three-dimensional locus groupings with the help of the new technology which they named Pore-C.

The human genome’s inner workings could be revealed through new Cornell-developed technology.

Researchers from Oxford Nanopore Technologies, Weill Cornell Medicine, and the New York Genome Center have created a new technique to evaluate the three-dimensional structure of the human[{” attribute=””DNA, or how the genome folds, on a massive scale. The genome is the entire set of genetic instructions, either DNA or RNA, that allow an organism to function.

Using this technique, the researchers showed that groups of simultaneously interacting regulatory elements in the genome, as opposed to pairs of these elements, may influence cell activity, including gene expression. Their research, which was recently published in the journal Nature Biotechnology, may help clarify the connection between cellular identity and genome structure.

“Knowing the three-dimensional genome

A new technology uses human teardrops to spot disease

Human tears could carry a flood of useful information.

With just a few drops, a new technique can spot eye disease and even glimpse signs of diabetesscientists report July 20 in ACS Nano.

“We wanted to demonstrate the potential of using tears to detect disease,” says Fei Liu, a biomedical engineer at Wenzhou Medical University in China. It’s possible the droplets could open a window for scientists to peer into the entire body, he says, and one day even let people quickly test their tears at home.

Like saliva and urine, tears contain tiny sacs stuffed with cellular messages (SN: 9/3/13). If scientists could intercept these microscopic mailbags, they could offer new intel

Osceola school buses get new safety technology

The goal of new technology on board Osceola County school buses is to keep students safer, and it will help keep tabs on where your kids are before and after school. When students get on the bus, they’ll use their student ID to scan in . Then their information will appear on a tablet, notifying the bus driver that they’re on the right bus.Zach Downes, the community relations specialist with Osceola Schools’ transportation department said having students scan on and off will help the district build routes. “Our student ridership program is a new program that we’re launching within the school district, so we have a better idea of ​​where kids are getting on and off the buses,” Downes said. It’ll also alert bus drivers if a child tries to get on the wrong bus or off at the wrong stop.“It’s definitely an extra safety measure because kids will get … Read more

New Technology Repairs and Regenerates Heart Cells After a Heart Attack

Myocarditis Young Man Heart Disease Concept

Revolutionary findings by UH researchers have the potential to become a powerful clinical method for treating heart disease.

A “powerful clinical strategy” for treating heart disease may result from the recent discovery.

University of Houston researchers have developed a groundbreaking technique that, in mice, not only restores the heart muscle cells after a myocardial infarction (or heart attack) but also helps the cells regenerate.

According to Robert Schwartz, Hugh Roy and Lillie Cranz Cullen Distinguished Professor of biology and biochemistry at the UH College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, the ground-breaking discovery, which was published in the Journal of Cardiovascular Aginghas the potential to develop into a powerful clinical strategy for treating heart disease in people.

The innovative method used by the
