Latest AI Breakthrough for Medicine
Four Second AI Diagnosis of Heart Disease
Source: AI stock image
Faster and As Good As Doctors
Scientists at the University College London have invented an AI program that can read a cardiac MRI scan in fractions of the time it takes doctors and the artificial intelligence system has equal accuracy. The AI program reaches a diagnosis in just four seconds. The doctors take an average of thirteen minutes to analyze the patient's heart function. The results are equally accurate.
When Seconds Mean Saving a Life
Fractions of seconds of time for cardiac patients can be life saving. This new AI program is significant and it's being deployed in robotic machines at the University College London in a series of trials. This may be a great example of artificial intelligence and robotics greatly aiding medical specialists in more quickly analyzing and treating dangerous cardiac emergencies and saving lives.
In the UK alone, 150,000 cardiac MRI scans are performed yearly. The researchers estimate that using AI to accelerate them would save 54 clinicians days a year at UK cardiac centers. For a free Kindle borrow of our book " How to Use AI & AR", go to https://www.amazon.com/-/e/B07JL56W35
Superstar Robot Packers Superstar Customers
The Italian packaging company CMC in the medieval town of Citta di Castello has robot machines at the cutting edge of 2019 filling some very big orders for big clients and it delivers. The robotic packaging machine is called CartonWrap. It can box and seal 600 to 1000 items of every shape and size every hour, 24/7, including in tailor made boxes. Clients of the automated packaging machines include Amazon, Walmart and Gucci.
Big Business in Italy
CMC and CartonWrap are one of 630 companies in Italy making automated packaging machines. This is the new robotic, automated economy and it is one of Italy's fastest growing industries. In fact, the sector is accelerating 9X's faster than the overall Italian economy. It's another example of robotic technology cutting time, costs and in this case packaging waste and creating a whole new avenue of global business that's a disruptor.
1st Test for CTE, Sports-Related, Traumatic Brain Injuries in the Living
Breakthrough Research and Discoveries by Boston University Scientists
CTE is the danger for players inherent in any contact sport. Repeated hard hits to and rattling of the
head in the course of games taking a cumulative toll and resulting in traumatic brain injury CTE which is a fatal disease. Until now, there was no way to detect it in the living. The only reference points for doctors were changes in mood and behavior in the patient following a bad hit to the head and concussion.. But now, there is a brain scan test to detect the abnormal protein tau which is an indicator that the disease condition is present. It's an important breakthrough just announced by scientists at Boston University.

Robot, Cut My Lawn Robo Mowers Powered by Batteries - No Gas
It's at the top of my robotic wish list. A robot lawn mower. No astronomical bills and upselling from lawn service companies. Just a nicely cut lawn and no hassles. Innovation seems to be knocking at the front door with news on robotic mowers.
Green Robots at the Cutting Edge
There's a slew of new robot mowers. Models include Worx Landroid for smaller lawns, Honda that cuts and feeds lawns, Robomow for all-purpose mowing and Husqvarna that's loaded with cell & GPS tech. These mowers aren't cheap. Prices range from $1000 to $3500. They're powered by rechargeable batteries so they're quiet. You pay more for online enhancements. And, if your lawn is loaded with trees and hills, your robot mower is going to be a lot more expensive.
Robot mowers look a lot like big robot vacuums such as iRobot's Roomba. They roam and groom your lawn. Their battery powered motor lasts from 30 minu…
