Chinese scientists are creating CRISPR babies

Filed under: Presse — Schlagwörter: — berndvo @ 10:59

When Chinese researchers first edited the genes of a human embryo in a lab dish in 2015, it sparked global outcry and pleas from scientists not to make a baby using the technology, at least for the present.

It was the invention of a powerful gene-editing tool, CRISPR, which is cheap and easy to deploy, that made the birth of humans genetically modified in an in vitro fertilization (IVF) center a theoretical possibility.

Now, it appears it may already be happening.

According to Chinese medical documents posted online this month (here and here), a team at the Southern University of Science and Technology, in Shenzhen, has been recruiting couples in an effort to create the first gene-edited babies. They planned to eliminate a gene called CCR5 in hopes of rendering the offspring resistant to HIV, smallpox, and cholera.

Liebe Deutsche, hört endlich auf, ständig Angst vor Künstlicher Intelligenz zu haben

Filed under: Presse — Schlagwörter: — berndvo @ 15:59

Liebe Deutsche!

Dieser Brief erreicht Euch aus einer zukünftigen Zeit, in der die Künstliche Intelligenz schon längst ein selbstverständlicher Teil unseres Alltags geworden ist.

Eigentlich reden wir nur noch selten darüber. Genauso, wie die Menschen im frühen 21. Jahrhundert nicht mehr darüber nachgedacht haben, was für eine gigantische Revolution die flächendeckende Versorgung mit elektrischer Energie war.

Roger Penrose still looks for evidence of universal rebirth

Filed under: Presse — Schlagwörter: — berndvo @ 08:11

Roger Penrose really should have won a Nobel Prize for something. Though I’m not sure for what. Maybe Penrose-tilings. Or Penrose diagrams. Or the Penrose process. Or the Penrose-Hawking singularity theorems. Or maybe just because there are so many things named after Penrose.

And at 87 years he’s still at it. Penrose has a reputation for saying rude things about string theory, has his own interpretation of quantum mechanics, and he doesn’t like inflation, the idea that the early universe underwent a rapid phase of exponential expansion. Instead, he has his own theory called “conformal cyclic cosmology” (CCC).

The World’s First Bionic Kidney Is All Set To Replace Dialysis in Just Two Years

Filed under: Presse — Schlagwörter: — berndvo @ 10:55

Not always can natural remedies be good for a medical condition despite of how effective they are. Sometimes, in serious conditions, only medical technology can help such as in the case of kidney dialysis. Without dialysis, a patient may not survive and what makes the suffering greater is the waiting list for kidney transplants. Till now a solution still remains elusive for this disease.

But!! This is where medical technology steps in where scientists from the University of California in San Francisco have invented the world’s first bionic kidney which can replace damaged kidneys.
