5 Reasons Why Mobile Technology Can Provide Better Patient Care

It doesn’t take an in-depth look at the healthcare industry today to observe a large increase in application and implementation of various technologies. From robotic surgical arms to a tablet device utilized in virtually every doctor’s visit to capture patient health data in real time, there’s no question that technology is becoming deeply entrenched in how healthcare is administered. This can create a number of substantial benefits for both patients and for medical professionals alike. One of the largest categories of technological implementation in healthcare is that of mobile technology, or the ways that mobile smart devices and similar can be used to propel patient care. Here are a few ways that mobile technology is changing the game for healthcare provision and the patient experience. Read more [...]

The problem with science comics: uncritical images and ideology of research

Academics are increasingly using comic books to teach and communicate science, even as strong, unbiased evidence of the effectiveness of doing so is missing. A recent review found that empirical research on the effectiveness of comics in science Read more [...]

ON THE WORLDWIDE ASBESTOS THE CUTTING EDGE

The properties of asbestos in terms of resistance and insulating against all type of agents and its relatively low cost of exploitation, explain the extensive industrial applications reinforcing all sort of materials. With mechanical strength, asbestos fibers decompose at high temperatures, do not dissolve in water or evaporate into the air in which It can remain transported over long distances. It cannot be degraded to other composites, and remain virtually unchanged forever, according to its etymological Greek-rooted name. Read more [...]

DRM Radio – the Best Digital Radio for All Broadcast Bands 

– the digital terrestrial broadcasting. As opposed to the linear transmission of sound in analog, digital radio uses compressed digital signals for radio terrestrial broadcasts. As analog signals suffer from quality loss due to signal interference and obstructions, the digital radio, on the other hand, offers an excellent audio quality.   Read more [...]

Sophia With AGI Not Even Close to Human Intelligence

A robot that behaves or thinks like a human is called a humanoid. A robot can either be controlled directly using a controlled device or can be programmed to do specific tasks autonomously. Robots are widely used in manufacturing, assembly and packing, transport, earth and space exploration, surgery, weaponry, laboratory research, and mass production of consumer and industrial goods. The world’s first digital robot called the Unimate was invented by George Devol in 1954. It was sold to General Motors to help with the manufacturing process like lifting hot pieces of metal from a die casting machine and stacking them. But a humanoid robot was still a fiction until 1972, when the first humanoid robot called WABOT-1 was developed by Waseda University (Japan).WABOT-1 was able to walk, communicate (in japanese), grip objects, etc. Read more [...]
