Life saving systems available are many. When these two technology leaders join together sure to bring out most advanced systems useful to the society. Speeding the detection and increasing the accuracy of identifying cancer sub-types are very much needed.
This is amazing advancement in biotechnological research and application. When will it be available for use in the US -- possibly early 2012? What's necessary legally for the this technology to be made available? I just learned late last year about http://www.cprit.state.tx.us/- hoping agencies like these will also join in the collaboration to expedite the availability of the solution globally. The only way though that we can apply automated detection solutions is if at a grassroots level, folks are concerned about their own health, get regular check-ups, and health care professionals recommend these types of diagnostic tools. Otherwise, we won't be catching cancers early which is just step prevention/treatment which is so crucial.
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.
