How dangerous is the virus? There are three parameters to understand in order to assess the magnitude of the risk posed by this novel coronavirus: Transmission Rate (Ro) - number of newly infected people from a single caseCase Fatality Rate (CFR) - percent of cases that result in death Determine whether asymptomatic transmission is possible How contagious is the Wuhan Coronavirus? The attack rate or transmissibility (how rapidly the disease spreads) of a virus is indicated by its reproductive number (Ro, pronounced R-nought or r-zero), which represents the average number of people to which a single infected person will transmit the virus. WHO's estimated (on Jan. 23) Ro to be between 1.4 and 2.5. [13] Other studies have estimated a Ro between 3.6 and 4.0, and between 2.24 to 3.58. [23]. Preliminary studies had estimated Ro to be between 1.5 and 3.5. [5][6][7] An outbreak with a reproductive number of below 1 will gradually disappear.

The technological singularity is the hypothesis that accelerating progress in technologies will cause a runaway effect wherein artificial intelligence will exceed human intellectual capacity and control, thus radically changing civilization in an event called the singularity.[1] Because the capabilities of such an intelligence may be impossible for a human to comprehend, the technological singularity is an occurrence beyond which events may become unpredictable, unfavorable, or even unfathomable.[2] The first use of the term "singularity" in this context was by mathematician John von Neumann. Proponents of the singularity typically postulate an "intelligence explosion",[5][6] where superintelligences design successive generations of increasingly powerful minds, that might occur very quickly and might not stop until the agent's cognitive abilities greatly surpass that of any human.

After the death of his old friend, Albert Einstein said “Now Besso has departed from this strange world a little ahead of me. That means nothing. People like us … know that the distinction between past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.” New evidence continues to suggest that Einstein was right – death is an illusion. Our classical way of thinking is based on the belief that the world has an objective observer-independent existence. We believe in death because we’ve been taught we die. Until we recognize the universe in our heads, attempts to understand reality will remain a road to nowhere. Consider the weather ‘outside’: You see a blue sky, but the cells in your brain could be changed so the sky looks green or red. In truth, you can’t see anything through the bone that surrounds your brain. Consider the famous two-slit experiment. Or consider Heisenberg’s famous uncertainty principle. Death doesn’t exist in a timeless, spaceless world. Bizarre? Robert Lanza » Is Death An Illusion? Evidence Suggests Death Isn’t the End Robert Lanza » Is Death An Illusion?

Electrical signatures of consciousness in the dying brain ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The "near-death experience" reported by cardiac arrest survivors worldwide may be grounded in science, according to research at the University of Michigan Health System. Whether and how the dying brain is capable of generating conscious activity has been vigorously debated. But in this week’s PNAS Early Edition, a U-M study shows shortly after clinical death, in which the heart stops beating and blood stops flowing to the brain, rats display brain activity patterns characteristic of conscious perception. “This study, performed in animals, is the first dealing with what happens to the neurophysiological state of the dying brain,” says lead study author Jimo Borjigin, Ph.D., associate professor of molecular and integrative physiology and associate professor of neurology at the University of Michigan Medical School. Approximately 20 percent of cardiac arrest survivors report having had a near-death experience. The brain is assumed to be inactive during cardiac arrest.

Promoting 3D Printing With 3D Printing Promoting 3D Printing With 3D Printing It seems any time a conversation about desktop 3D printing comes up, somebody will utter the words, “toys & tchotchkes.” You can almost feel the air deflate from the conversation. Those in the business will immediately fire back with all the great things they’ve seen produced on these machines. We all know what toys are, but what exactly is a tchotchke? Promotional Products are Big Business You know, there’s another industry that gets the same rap. 8 in 10 consumers own between 1 and 10 promotional products53% of these people use a promotional product at least once a week6 in 10 of them keep promotional products for up to two yearsOnly one in five people will trash an unwanted promotional productBefore receiving a promotional product, 55% of people had done business with the advertiser. Who buys promotional products? In the US alone, it’s a $21 billion industry. 3D Printed Promotional Products So, why aren’t desktop 3D printer manufacturers more attuned to this market? Here’s my point.

Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo - New York - Day 1 - Tuesday, March 14th, 2017 The Session Description will be available shortly. Keynote: The separation of craniopagus twins is an extremely difficult undertaking not only due to the inherent risks and anatomical complexity of each case, but also due to the variation that is present between each set of twins. Limited autologous materials with which the plastic surgeons can reconstruct the scalp and skull after separation are also a key challenge. Virtual surgical planning (VSP) combines 3D-modeling and simulation software for the purpose of precisely planning complex surgery, making it an ideal tool in craniopagus separation. 3D-printing customized guides and jigs allows for the precise translation of VSP onto the operating table.

Economists may be underestimating the impact on labor markets of increasing automation and the rise of artificial intelligence, according to a post published on the Bank of England’s staff blog on Wednesday. “The potential for simultaneous and rapid disruption, coupled with the breadth of human functions that AI might replicate, may have profound implications for labor markets,” BOE regional agents Mauricio Armellini and Tim Pike wrote in the Bank Underground post. “Economists should seriously consider the possibility that millions of people may be at risk of unemployment, should these technologies be widely adopted.” Robots and intelligent machines threaten to replace workers in industries from finance to retail to haulage, with BOE Chief Economist Andrew Haldane estimating in 2015 that 15 million British jobs and 80 million in the U.S. could be lost to automation. “Economists looking at previous industrial revolutions observe that none of these risks have transpired,” they wrote.

In the public conversation about the mass incarceration crisis in the US, there’s a widely accepted diagnosis for why the country’s prisons and jails are bursting at the seams. The story—propelled by academics, politicians, journalists, Oscar-nominated documentaries, and civic-minded celebrities—goes like this: The US prison population is ballooning because the “War on Drugs” needlessly put countless drug offenders behind bars; non-violent felons are getting egregiously long sentences; private prisons are a cancer on the system; and that a lot of this can be blamed—and should be resolved—by the federal government in Washington, DC. “We focus on the wrong thing and we actually adopt policies that won’t work.” But criminologist and law professor John Pfaff thinks that all this—what he calls the “Standard Story” of mass incarceration gets many things wrong. What the Standard Story gets wrong But there is a danger in focusing on non-violent drug offenders, he says.
