Sequencing genetic duplications could aid clinical interpretation

Copy number variations (deletions or duplications of large chunks of the genome) are a major cause of birth defects, intellectual disability, autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disorders. Still, geneticists can definitively say how a CNV, once discovered in someone’s DNA, leads to one of these conditions in just a fraction of cases. To aid in the interpretation of CNVs, researchers at Emory University School of Medicine have completed detailed maps of 184 duplications found in the genomes of individuals referred for genetic testing. Continue reading

Nanofilm Serves as Artificial Retina

Israel-based Nano Retina made some noise a few years back with its development of so-called nanoelectrodes that interface with the eyes bipolar neurons and restart neural stimulation, allowing for messages to go to the brain. The nanoelectrodes served as a kind of artificial retina. Continue reading

The future of artificial intelligence: Will computers take your job?

Artificial intelligence experts predict that computers in coming years will increasingly replace knowledge workers The field of artificial intelligence may not be able to create a robotic vacuum cleaner that never knocks over a vase, at least not within a couple of years, but intelligent machines will increasingly replace knowledge workers in the near future, a group of AI experts predicted. An AI machine that can learn the same way humans do, and has the equivalent processing power of a human brain, is still a few years off, the experts said Continue reading
