Wireless sensors that stick to the skin to track our health

We tend to take our skin’s protective function for granted, ignoring its other roles in signaling subtleties like a fluttering heart or a flush of embarrassment. Now, Stanford engineers have developed a way to detect physiological signals emanating from the skin with sensors that stick like band-aids and beam wireless…

AI reveals new breast cancer types that respond differently to treatment: Revelations could personalize treatment, including picking out those likely to benefit from immunotherapy

Scientists have used artificial intelligence to recognise patterns in breast cancer — and uncovered five new types of the disease each matched to different personalised treatments. Their study applied AI and machine learning to gene sequences and molecular data from breast tumours, to reveal crucial differences among cancers that had…

Do passengers prefer autonomous vehicles driven like machines or like humans? Research finds that ‘peeking round’ corners provides answers

Passenger and pedestrian confidence and acceptance will be key to the future and development of autonomous vehicles so researchers at WMG at the University of Warwick have just conducted and reported an experiment to see which autonomous vehicles driving style engendered the highest levels of confidence among autonomous vehicles passengers…
