Cincinnati Schools Roll Out Tech to Identify Teens Likely to Attempt Suicide The medical professionals tasked with caring for our minds don’t have an easy job. To diagnose people with neuropsychiatric diseases, doctors can perform brain scans, but such scans are expensive and the results are sometimes inscrutable. The other options include conducting time-consuming cognitive tests, or relying on doctors’ own subjective analyses. Seeing an opportunity, a number of startups have devised quantitative methods to diagnose diseases or assess mental health while patients complete routine activities, like talking on a smartphone, typing on a keyboard, or scrolling through a website. Here are three companies that say they can lift the “fingerprints” of mental disorders … [Read more...] about Tech Watches You for Digital Symptoms of Brain Disorders
Each autumn, businesses flock to elite universities like Harvard and Stanford to recruit engineers for their first post-university jobs. Curious students pile into classrooms to hear recruiters deliver their best pitches. These are the first moments when prospective employees size up a company’s culture, and assess whether they can see themselves reflected in its future. More often than not, this is the moment when these companies screw up, according to new research. Tech companies have employed a host of tactics to help lift the scant number of women and minorities who work within their ranks, like anti-bias training, affinity groups, and software that scans job postings for gendered language. Yet the numbers remain dire. Of men with science, technology engineering, or math (STEM) degrees, 40 percent work in technical careers; only 26 percent of women with STEM degrees do. That means that qualified women are turning away from the field before they even get started. Some of the … [Read more...] about Why Are There Few Women in Tech? Watch a Recruiting Session

Their ideas paved the way for modern smartwatches like the Moto 360, the LG Watch Urbane, and, of course, the Apple Watch to materialize. However, the decade-long history of smartwatches has also seen quite a few failed attempts at delivering a decent high-tech watch to the masses. One such attempt was the Samsung SPH-WP10, which is considered to be the first, and still one of the very few, watch phones... This is a discussion for a news.

Smartwatches – they never became a smashing hit, but there's one company in particular that has been selling them by the millions. That would be Apple, which ships more smartwatches than any other company in the business. For this reason the rumors of a new and improved Apple Watch model come as no surprise. But how exactly will it be superior to Apple's current offerings? Well, let's go over what we know so far.What will we call it anyway?Until recently, we had no clues pointing at a specific name for Apple's next smartwatch. Now, however, it seems very likely that the wearable will be known as the Apple Watch Series 3, as this is is the name Verizon itself mentioned for a brief moment on its app. Here is a screenshot that Reddit used TheMightyCracken shared earlier to spread the word. This leak further suggests that the Apple Watch Series 3 will be available on Verizon. It also makes it very likely that the smartwatch will support wireless connectivity over LTE – a … [Read more...] about Apple Watch Series 3 rumors: design, features, price, release date
