    AI is integral to the future of healthcare — but for now, so are humans

    Artificial intelligence has been around for half a century, but it has only recently become a real player in the healthcare space. Harjinder Sandhu, the CEO and founder of SayKara, says that’s all down to data. “The data never really existed” for AI to take off, Sandhu said on a panel about AI and the future of healthcare at the 2018 GeekWire Summit. “In healthcare specifically, if you look back 20 years, virtually every medical record was on paper.”

    Study opens route to flexible electronics made from exotic materials

    The vast majority of computing devices today are made from silicon, the second most abundant element on Earth, after oxygen. Silicon can be found in various forms in rocks, clay, sand, and soil. And while it is not the best semiconducting material that exists on the planet, it is by far the most readily available. As such, silicon is the dominant material used in most electronic devices, including sensors, solar cells, and the integrated circuits within our computers and smartphones.

    What makes a mammal a mammal? Our spine, say scientists

    Mammals are unique in many ways. We're warm-blooded and agile in comparison with our reptilian relatives. But a new study, funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and led by Harvard University researchers Stephanie Pierce and Katrina Jones, suggests we're unique in one more way -- the makeup of our spines.
