Pigeons Can Be Trained To Read Medical Images

Dr-pigeon

ScienceDaily reported –

With some training and selective food reinforcement, pigeons performed as well as humans in categorizing digitized slides and mammograms of benign and malignant human breast tissue, the researchers found. The pigeons were able to generalize what they had learned, so that when the researchers showed them a completely new set of normal and cancerous digitized slides, they correctly identified them.

Stretchable Gold Could Radically Advance Electronics

str-goldAccording to Gizmodo –

Have you ever thought about the possibilities of bendable, stretchable electronics? They’re amazing. From a circuit attached to your brain to a pacemaker that sticks to your heart, these are the stuff that medical sci-fi dreams are made of. There’s only one problem: Stretchable electronics are notoriously impossible to make. At least until now they were. A team of engineers from the University of Michigan are currently perfecting an unassuming but incredible invention. It’s an elastic gold conductor. Made up of gold nanoparticles and stretchy polyurethane, the material just looks like a piece of foil to the naked eye. But after watching it stretch out four times its normal size, it’s obvious that this conductor is something else.

Researchers Use DNA For Data Storage

dna2According to Discover Magazine –

DNA is the building block of life, but in the future it may also be the standard repository for encyclopedias, music and other digital data. Scientists announced yesterday that they successfully converted 739 kilobytes of hard drive data in genetic code and then retrieved the content with 100 percent accuracy.

So what does DNA offer that other data storage methods don’t? One, it can pack data really densely. A single gram of DNA holds more than a million CDs, according to the researchers. Two, DNA lasts a really long time in a range of conditions. It is not nearly as sensitive or fragile as existing data centers. Three, DNA has a reputation for safely storing information: It holds the history of all life on Earth, a tough resumé to top.
