Human Organs on Demand: The Art of 3D-Bioprinting a Functioning Heart

Since the beginning of the history of medicine, the complexity of the human heart has been at the center of medical study. In Ancient Egypt, doctors had a pretty accurate knowledge of the internal organs and how they functioned. In particular, they knew a fair amount about the heart. This is interesting because despite embalming was a common practice for the Egyptians, the knowledge was not shared or used by doctors. In Ancient Egypt, invasive surgery was an almost unheard of practice. Yet, the

Artificial Intelligence Predicts Suicide Attempt Risk

Artificial Intelligence’s deployment is once again helping healthcare by achieving a demonstrated utility within suicide prediction and clinical management of patients at high risk. It is impossible to know if those who committed suicide would have changed their mind. If something had predicted their suicide attempt, perhaps. Many, though, have survived the suicidal thoughts and the attempt. After receiving help, treatment, and being fully recovered, many have recognized that causing their dea

Neuromorphic Computing: How the Brain-Inspired Technology Powers the Next-Generation of Artificial Intelligence

As a remarkable product of evolution, the human brain has a baseline energy footprint of about 20 watts; this gives the brain the power to process complex tasks in milliseconds. Today’s CPUs and GPUs dramatically outperform the human brain for serial processing tasks. However, the process of moving data from memory to a processor and back creates latency and, in addition, expends enormous amounts of energy. Neuromorphic systems attempt to imitate how the human nervous system operates. This fiel

Human Attitudes toward the Robot in the Room

The increasing presence of robots in society calls for a deeper understanding into what attitudes humans have toward robots. People may treat robots as mechanical artifacts, or may consider them to be intentional agents. This might result in explaining robots’ behavior as stemming from operations of the mind (intentional interpretation), or as a result of mechanical design (mechanical interpretation). A quick look at the robotics industry market size research shows that robots including industr

Killer Robots Could Cause Mass Atrocities

Robots will be used as soldiers in the future. Robots will be used as soldiers in the future. In fact, some robots as well as drones are already being deployed by the military.
