Take a Look at These New Innovations Coming From the Field of Technology
Ric Edelman: At the French Institute for Molecular Sciences at the University of Amsterdam, they've synthesized multi-layered, multifunctional nanoparticles that combine radiotherapy and photodynamic therapy for deep cancer tissue just by using X-rays. Imagine no more chemotherapy. You'll simply get an X-ray to beat your cancer. This kind of research is going to revolutionize healthcare.
Ric Edelman: A new map of a mouse's brain has been published in Cell magazine. It captures a tiny part of the mouse's visual cortex, a thousand times smaller than a pea. It's impossible to overstate the impact on neuroscience, according to David Markowitz, who's the program manager at the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity. By being able to look at the incredibly small size of the neurons in a brain, the brain research can unleash the singularity - the combination of human intelligence and synthetic intelligence. This has been widely predicted to occur over the next 25 years. This research looks like they're making progress. And that's why I like to talk about exponential technologies every week.
