How Society is Changing in the Second Machine Age
Technology is shaping society, as it has always done so, but at a rate never experienced before in the history of mankind. This department is tracking the impact technology has on the fabric of our societies and humanity in general.
Technology provides interventional radiologists with 360-degree view of internal anatomy.
System to predict epileptic seizures developed by Dr Omid Kavehei designed to give 30-minute warning using data from a non-surgical device and is based on latest artificial intelligence and machine learning.
oday, digital twins are a reality, and they leverage a set of technologies, such as IoT, communications, mathematical modelling, artificial intelligence, deep learning, and more, in order to represent real objects in “bits.”
As the global population soars, we are collectively developing the desire and ability to communicate with larger groups of people. But as our audiences grow, we’re left with a paradox: the more people I reach, the less meaningful each piece of communication becomes.
People could soon power items such as their mobile phones or personal health equipment by simply using their daily movements, thanks to a new research tool that could be used by manufacturers.
Otago Paediatric Endocrinologist Ben Wheeler has secured a $106,000 research grant to undertake a world-first trial to assess teenage diabetics’ use of new glucose monitoring technology. he funding from Cure...
Engineers at the University of California San Diego have developed a miniature, ultra-low power injectable biosensor that could be used for continuous, long-term alcohol monitoring. The chip is small enough to be implanted in the body just beneath the surface of the skin and is powered wirelessly by a wearable device, such as a smartwatch or patch.
The new technology has the potential to replace the traditional “best before” date on food and drinks alike with a definitive indication that it’s time to chuck that roast or pour out that milk.
A consortium coordinated by the epileptologists of the University Hospital Bonn is now developing a mobile sensor that can detect seizures.
New research shows how paper-cutting can make ultra strong, stretchable electronics.
