The First Living Robots

The First Living Robots

A book is made of wood. But it is not a tree. The dead cells have been repurposed to serve another need. Now a team of scientists has repurposed living cells—scraped from frog embryos—and assembled them into entirely new life-forms. These millimeter-wide "xenobots" can move toward a target, perhaps pick up a payload (like a medicine that needs to be carried to a specific place inside a patient)—and heal themselves after being cut.

Prostrate Cancer Can Now be Diagnosed Better Using AI

Prostrate Cancer Can Now be Diagnosed Better Using AI

Researchers have developed a 'deep learning' system that is better than most pathologists at determining the aggressiveness of prostate cancer. The AI system, which uses tissue samples to arrive at its diagnosis, taught itself to identify prostate cancer based on data from over 1200 patients.

Diagnosing Cardiovascular Disease

Diagnosing Cardiovascular Disease

Diagnosing CVD is the first step in patients' road to recovery. It is imperative to detect the disease early in order to administer treatment while it is still treatable. In addition, preventing the disease altogether is becoming more important in healthcare. The main approaches for detecting CVD are currently in vitro diagnostics (IVD) at point-of-care (POC) and the use artificial intelligence (AI) in cardiovascular imaging.

Plant Based Pork From Impossible Foods

Plant Based Pork From Impossible Foods

The food tech startup is providing an exclusive first taste of Impossible Pork -- a plant-based upgrade to the world's most ubiquitous meat. Impossible Foods is also launching Impossible Sausage, which debuts in late January at 139 Burger King restaurants in a limited-time test of the Impossible Croissan'wich.

Step Toward 'Ink' Development for 3D Printing a Bioprosthetic Ovary

Step Toward 'Ink' Development for 3D Printing a Bioprosthetic Ovary

For the first time, scientists identified and mapped the location of structural proteins in a pig ovary. Ongoing development of an "ink" with these proteins will be used for 3-D printing an artificial (or bio-prosthetic) ovary that could be implanted and allow a woman to have a child.
