Welcome to Q3 Technologies! We’re diving deep into the world of artificial intelligence to report the latest happenings in science & technology today!
How Artificial Intelligence Saved a Man’s Life
Artificial intelligence is gaining momentum every day, with companies incorporating the technology into software systems for everyday use. Don’t believe us? Read about the law firm that hired an artificially intelligent lawyer to power through legal research.
Joshua Neally from Springfield, Missouri, suffered a pulmonary embolism while driving his Tesla Model X to his daughter’s birthday. The event, a fatal blood vessel blockage, might’ve ended his life had it not been for the already-activated Autopilot system on his self-driving Tesla Model X. The car drove Neally nearly 32 km straight to the hospital, where Neally drove the last few blocks to check himself in.
"I'm very thankful I had it for this experience. If something like that happens where I become unconscious or incapacitated while I'm driving, I'm not going to cross over the interstate and slam into somebody or slam into one of the big rock walls. It's not going to be perfect, there's no technology that’s perfect, but I think the measure is that it's better and safer," he says.
Hyperloop One Might Build Underwater Hyperloop for Cargo Transport
Elon Musk really stirred up the tech industry with his Hyperloop concept, something which soon became a reality just recently. Hyperloop One, a Los Angeles-based started looking to become the first pioneers of the concept, has just revealed its plans to build an underwater Hyperloop to transport cargo, and even, people!
"Long Beach, near where I live, is a beautiful California coastline that is basically covered with ports or cargo containers and ships. Imagine if you could regain all of that coastline for parks and homes and beaches by taking the port and putting the port 10 miles off shore," said Peter Diamandis, CEO of the X-Prize Foundation and Hyperloop One board member.
"We've been talking to a lot of the port authorities around the world about re-engineering their ports in this kind of fashion. Some of the more interesting proposals that have come in have been [about] going between Norway and Sweden - going through the water ways there," he added.
NIH to Restart Human-Animal Chimera Research
With scientists & researchers clearly not happy with the National Institute of Health (NIH) imposing a moratorium on the funding for human-animal chimera research & human stem cell research, the NIH posted a new policy that proposed various changes to the existing NIG guidelines for chimera research.
“At the end of the day, we want to make sure this research progresses because it’s very important to our understanding of disease. It’s important to our mission to improve human health. But we also want to make sure there’s an extra set of eyes on these projects because they do have this ethical set of concerns associated with them,” said Carrie Wolinetz, Associate Director of Science Policy at NIH.
