Thumb prints instead of passwords

Google and Android are eliminating the need for passwords on mobile devices, while simultaneously making interactions more secure. Creating and remembering secure passwords is a growing problem and drain on productivity. Android is making it possible to log in to websites in Chrome via thumbprint identification or hardware dongles like a YubiKey. This security move will affect over one billion devices. Android developers will be able to design simpler interactions into their websites, dramatically improving ease of use. https://www.wired.com/story/android-passwordless-login-fido2/

Preventing Extinction Using Artificial Intelligence and Citizen Science

Wild Me is introducing an innovative program where citizen science and high technology are combined to fight the extinction of wildlife. Microsoft AI is the technology that uses the algorithm to distinguish the pattern of an animal’s physical appearance, for instance, skin pattern and scars. This program would not be completed without the help of citizen science and researchers who actively seek the existence of the living creatures and record them. For example, the data shows that Wild Me succeeded in identifying 10 times more whale sharks than ever recorded. https://www.wildme.org/

An internship program for Uni students within their degree

The multi award-winning PACE (Professional and Community Engagement) program is offered to all undergraduate students at Macquarie University and is a vital part of their career preparation. Through PACE they go beyond the classroom to apply their learning in practice. They undertake a practical activity with one of over 3,000 partner organisations across Australia and around the world to learn from industry leaders in their chosen field, gain vital contacts, and develop the employability skills they need to start their careers. IdeaSpies is proud to partner with PACE and engage two enthusiastic interns interested in learning more about innovation. They have also provided two teams to work on the prototype of an app for IdeaSpies! https://www.mq.edu.au/study/why-study-here/employability/learning-for-life

The world’s largest telescope

The Square Kilometre Array (SKA), a radio telescope to be built at CSIRO’s Observatory in Western Australia, will ultimately have a total collecting area of one square kilometre (hence the name) – ten times larger than any existing facility. It will be so sensitive it could detect an airport radar on a planet tens of light years away. This sensitivity will revolutionise our understanding of the Universe and the laws of fundamental physics. Astronomers will be able to track the growth of millions of galaxies through cosmic time, perhaps finally nailing the nature of the mysterious ‘dark energy’. And they’ll be able to trace the giant magnetic fields that run through the universe, learning what generates them. blog.csiro.au/plans-for-mega-telescope-coming-into-focus/

A simple blood test for cancer?

Grail is on a quest to detect multiple types of cancer before symptoms, via a single, simple blood test. The test looks at cell-free plasma to find fragments of so-called circulating tumour DNA (ctDNA) sloughed off by cancer cells. Detecting cancer sooner – before symptoms – means you can intervene earlier and people are less likely to die. http://www.inkl.com/newsletters/morning-edition/news/could-we-soon-be-able-to-detect-cancer-in-10-minutes?

Battery-less mosquito catcher bat

There are products like battery operated bats available in the market to kill mosquitoes and insects but there is no battery-less innovation. My invention is very simple and very effective in killing mosquitoes as there is no need for recharging the battery of this mosquito bat. Only a bat and adhesive tape are required to build it. It will work to by trapping and killing mosquitoes. Salient features: (1) there is no need for recharging it. (2) the adhesive tape can be removed and replaced after use. (3) it is a very low cost design so anyone can afford it very easily. (4) it is safe and light weight (5) it can be used many times.

Drugs that delay diabetes

Researchers have found that diabetes could be kept at bay in animals by clearing out defective insulin-producing cells. Drug development has previously been focused on preserving these “beta cells” by preventing the immune system wiping them out, but US researchers say their findings turn this on its head. Their data suggest the problem may not be an immune system gone awry. Instead, perhaps therapies should find a way to do the job the immune system is failing to do: clear the senescent cells early on. http://www.inkl.com/newsletters/morning-edition/news/paradigm-shift-in-type-1-diabetes-shows-new-drugs-which-could-delay-disease-s-emergence?

A new way to evaluate credit history

The fintech startup Petal, in conjunction with WebBank, is offering a credit card to the estimated 65 million people in the US who have insufficient credit history to qualify for a traditional credit card. Instead of relying on credit scores, Petal uses cashflow underwriting based on machine learning. It considers how much money consumers make, the bills they pay on a monthly basis, and trends in volatility in their income and expenses. www.americanbanker.com/news/petal-webbank-launch-card-for-credit-invisibles

The world’s largest offshore wind farm

The world’s largest offshore wind farm, the Hornsea Project One project located off the coast of the UK, is to start generating this month, helping to fill the gap left open by the UK’s failing nuclear industry. When the project reaches full operation in 2020, it is expected to generate enough power to supply the needs of well over 1 million UK homes. https://reneweconomy.com.au/worlds-largest-wind-farm-to-begin-production-this-week-in-uk-78677/
