Prof. Ferrari has hit the nail on the head! Cancer has to be viewed as a technology problem -- and MEMS/NEMS are the clearest way to go forward. I am particularly interested in magnetic induction heating as a means of destroying targeted cancer cells after guiding magnetic nanoparticles to the malignant site.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
