Three years ago, Amor Nadji and three young engineers piled into a van in Amman, Jordan, and drove 30 kilometers northeast to the city of Zarqa. Their route took them past faded, sand-colored buildings and empty lots where sheep grazed on patches of grass and low brush. The shops and apartment buildings gradually thinned out, and the van entered an industrial ghetto of warehouses. Behind one set of padlocked doors, about 100 plywood boxes and metal equipment racks stood coated in a thick layer of dust. Carefully packed away in those boxes was the collected hardware of a vintage synchrotron. The engineers’ mission was to salvage the then-25-year-old particle accelerator and turn it into a first-rate machine. This supermicroscope, called SESAME (for Synchrotron-light for Experimental Science and Applications in the Middle East) would enable scientists from Jordan and nearby countries to investigate the atomic structure of different materials. The engineers’ hope was that … [Read more...] about SESAME Synchrotron’s Battle for Light
Editor’s Picks Can We Trust Robots? Do We Want Robot Warriors to Decide Who Lives or Dies? Can You Program Ethics Into a Self-Driving Car? Inside the glistening red cave of the patient’s abdomen, surgeon Michael Stifelman carefully guides two robotic arms to tie knots in a piece of thread. He manipulates a third arm to drive a suturing needle through the fleshy mass of the patient’s kidney, stitching together the hole where a tumor used to be. The final arm holds the endoscope that streams visuals to … [Read more...] about Would You Trust a Robot Surgeon to Operate on You?
At four U.S. medical centers, surgeons, nurses and anesthesiologists are quietly scrubbing in for the return of one of the most vilified medical devices ever conceived-the artificial heart. Each of the four teams was tapped a year ago by Abiomed, a little-known Danvers, Mass., company whose engineers have worked for more than a decade to build a 900-gram electromechanical pump they call the PulsaCor. Surgeons at the Texas Heart Institute and Massachusetts General Hospital, among others, are now practicing putting the synthetic heart into calves. David Lederman, Abiomed’s CEO, says they’ll be performing the surgery on a human before 2000 is out. That first patient will, in all likelihood, already be dead. Lederman confides that Abiomed, moving cautiously, will seek permission to undertake a surgical dry run on a brain-dead individual on total life support. Before the doctors and nurses don their gloves, Abiomed’s recently convened board of ethical advisors will have … [Read more...] about CPR for the Artificial Heart
When the new president takes up residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., cybersecurity will be on the shortlist for action. What's a president to do?TechNewsWorld asked more than a dozen experts what should be at the top of the new leader of the free world's cyberagenda. Following are some of their responses."The president has to set the tone early on cybersecurity -- within the first 100 days -- and say right off the bat that this matters," said Sam Curry, chief product officer at Cybereason.The first priority should be protecting government systems, he explained."New cabinet secretaries have to understand that their mission can't be done without secure systems," said Curry. "Far too often, cybersecurity is not even on the list of priorities for initiatives and agencies and staffing."All government agencies should be required to adopt a formal assumption of breach framework, recommended Jeffrey Carr, CEO of Taia Global."This means that they acknowledge that they are currently in a state … [Read more...] about SPOTLIGHT ON SECURITY What Should be on the Next President’s Cyberagenda?
