「既存のコンピューティングの代替技術を見つけるために人間の脳に回帰する」という考え方は、それほど新しいものではないようだ。CEA-Leti（フランス原子力庁の電子情報技術研究所）のチーフサイエンティストであるBarbara De Salvo氏は、「人工知能（AI）が1950年代半ばに登場して以来、多くの科学者やエンジニアが、こうした考え方に興味を抱いてきたが、AI関連の研究はこれまで、浮き沈みの波に翻弄されてきた」と述べている。
The breakthrough moves researchers a small step closer to growing human organs for medical transplant.
Building on a controversial breakthrough made in 2017, scientists announced on Saturday that they have created the second successful human-animal hybrids: sheep embryos that are are 0.01-percent human by cell count.
The embryos, which were not allowed to develop past 28 days of age, move researchers a small step closer to perhaps growing human organs for medical transplant.
Every hour, six people in the United States are added to the national waiting list for organ transplants—and each day, 22 people on the list die waiting. In the U.S. alone, more than a hundred thousand people need heart transplants each year, but only about 2,000 receive one…

Arca Noae is pleased to announce the immediate availability of ArcaOS 5.0.2, the second maintenance release of ArcaOS 5.0 (Blue Lion).
ArcaOS 5.0.2 is the result of many hours of collaborative work to update and refine ArcaOS 5.0. Post-install fixes are included, and these will be made available for separate download as part of the ArcaOS 5.0 Support & Maintenance subscription shortly. In the meantime, a full download of the refreshed media image is required to obtain these fixes and updates.
ArcaOS 5.0.2 includes well over 60 updates and fixes since 5.0.1, and introduces for the first time ever available, the ability to boot an OS/2-based operating system from USB stick media and perform an installation. This new facility – AltBoot – should enable ArcaOS to be installed on many systems where traditional DVD-based booting has not been possible.
Plan to be tested in five cities in effort to meet EU air pollution targets and avoid big fines.
“Car nation” Germany has surprised neighbours with a radical proposal to reduce road traffic by making public transport free, as Berlin scrambles to meet EU air pollution targets and avoid big fines.
The move comes just over two years after Volkswagen’s devastating “dieselgate” emissions cheating scandal unleashed a wave of anger at the auto industry, a keystone of German prosperity.
“We are considering public transport free of charge in order to reduce the number of private cars,” three ministers including the environment minister, Barbara Hendricks, wrote to EU environment commissioner Karmenu Vella in the letter seen by AFP Tuesday…
It turns out that when a company loves glass buildings and also creates devices for hours of addictive personal use, sometimes it ends up with injured employees who are too distracted by the products to notice walls. A report from MarketWatch today details how the company has had to call emergency services to assist multiple employees who can’t help but accidentally walk into glass walls. None of the injured employees required hospitalizations, but some were treated for minor cuts to the head.
