Government funding only available to scientists who share their research for free

That’s a new rule from 11 European organizations that fund science research. These organisations have launched cOAlition S, an initiative designed to ensure that, starting in 2020, researchers publish every project funded by public grants in an open access journal or platform. https://futurism.com/open-access-science-

A smart hotel room

Imagine telling your hotel room you are “going to sleep,” and your living area immediately adds a blue tint to your lighting and cools down. While still in its early stages, InterContinental and Baidu’s integration of AI into hospitality represents a shift towards smart and responsive environments. From now on, guests staying at InterContinental® Beijing Sanlitun and InterContinental® Guangzhou Exhibition Centre will be among the first to enjoy the AI smart rooms. A total of 100 AI powered Club InterContinental suites will be available at InterContinental hotels in gateway cities and key destinations across China within the year. http://www.marketing-interactive.com/intercontinental-hotels-launch-ai-smart-rooms-in-china/

A breakthrough in detecting early stage stomach cancer

Two Japanese national research institutes have succeeded in using artificial intelligence to identify early stage stomach cancer with a high accuracy rate. The breakthrough should help extend the lives of patients in Japan in particular, where stomach cancer is one of the leading causes of death. Stomach cancer causes few symptoms and is often found only after it reaches an advanced stage. At an early stage, even specialists have a difficult time distinguishing the cancer from inflammation. https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2018/07/22/national/science-health/japanese-researchers-use-ai-identify-early-stage-stomach-cancer-high-accuracy/#.W1Vk-aR_XDs

An easy way to monitor your blood sugar level

Theresa May was spotted wearing a diabetes patch when she met Donald Trump for a black-tie dinner in London recently. She revealed her type 1 diabetes diagnosis in 2013 and uses the FreeStyle Libre flash glucose monitoring device which has a small sensor that lasts for two weeks and monitors the fluid just under the surface of the skin. When you wear it you can scan it with another device or a mobile phone to get your blood sugar level. https://www.smh.com.au/world/europe/why-theresa-may-was-wearing-a-white-patch-on-her-arm-when-she-met-donald-trump-20180713-p4zrb2.html

An X-ray breakthrough

The images created by the Lumitron Hyperview machines have 1000 times the resolution of a traditional X-ray. Limitron Technologies plans that its machines will be able to replace traditional X-ray and CT scanners in hospitals and identify problems such as tumours in far more detail. They would also have ultra-low radiation compared with today’s machines and theoretically be able to treat a tumour with precision radiotherapy at the same time as imaging it. https://www.afr.com/technology/aussies-lumitron-hunts-biggest-xray-breakthrough-since-1800s-with-336m-raise-20180626-h11vii

Broccoli in your coffee

With funding from vegetable growers through Hort Innovation, CSIRO has developed a broccoli powder that could help pack extra veggies into your diet. The 100 per cent broccoli powder is made from whole broccoli, and produced using a combination of selected pre-treatment and drying processes to retain the natural colour, flavour and nutrient composition of fresh broccoli. Broccoli contains protein, fibre and health-promoting bioactive phytochemicals, making it an ideal candidate for being turned into a powder ingredient. https://blog.csiro.au/broccoli-better-latte-than-never/?

A new system to analyse gold

Since the middle ages the fire assay has been the gold standard in gold analysis. However a new system has been developed by the CSIRO using powerful x-rays to bombard rock samples and activate atoms of gold – and other metals – giving off unique atomic signatures which are detected by a highly sensitive detector. It dramatically reduces the turnaround time on assays from days to minutes, providing critical data to miners on gold grades in near real-time to support operational decisions.. While this new system is currently calibrated to evaluate gold, it can also be applied to a range of other minerals, including silver and copper. https://blog.csiro.au/first-photon-assay-installation/
