artificial intelligence used to detect very early signs of autism in infants

It’s difficult to diagnose infants with autism due to trouble determining whether any behavioral traits common to autism are present. This difficulty is most pronounced before the age of two, and especially before the age of one, resulting in delayed diagnoses. All that may be changing, though, thanks to artificial intelligence and its ability to predict with high accuracy which infants will be diagnosed with autism by their second year.As detailed by a new study funded by the US National Institute of Health, predictions of future Autism Spectrum Disorder can be made based on MRI scans of an infant’s brain. The technology heavily relies on brain scans taken of infants that are at high risk of being diagnosed with autism by their second birthday.Using 106 brain scans of high-risk infants, r

army veteran to scale 'everest' for girl who suffered life-changing injuries in

An Army captain is to climb the equivalent of Everest in 24 hours to raise money for a girl who was critically injured in a riding accident.Gulf War veteran Christopher Hames plans to climb Roseberry Topping, Cleveland, 30 times from noon on Saturday (25 February).Capt Hames wants to raise funds for Maisie Welsh, who suffered life-changing facial injuries in a fall while hacking in November. The 11-year-old was blinded in one eye and needs “years of painful reconstructive facial surgery”.The 46-year-old, a serving officer with the Royal Army Physical Training Corps, said: “I’ve had some pretty epic challenges over my 29 years in the Army, but this will be up there as being one of the toughest.“It will be worth every step to raise funds to support Maisie and her family who have had their li

bob greenlee, ex-boulder mayor, charged with vehicular homicide in december cras

Pat Lucero (Courtesy Valley Courier)Former Boulder Mayor Bob Greenlee this week was charged with nine criminal counts — including vehicular homicide and criminally negligent homicide — for his role in a fatal five-car crash in southern Colorado late last year.In addition to the homicide counts, Greenlee, 75, was charged with vehicular assault, two counts of careless driving causing injury, reckless driving, speeding, reckless endangerment and improper passing on the left.The charges were filed Wednesday in Alamosa, about two months after the crash.Twelfth Judicial District Attorney Crista Newmyer-Olsen said accident reconstruction played a part in the delay in filing charges, but she added that her office also is handling a triple homicide investigation and another fatal crash."In an area

molecular 'on switch' could point to treatments for pediatric brain tumor

Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) researchers have identified a mechanism that controls the expression of genes regulating the growth of the most aggressive form of medulloblastoma, the most common pediatric brain tumor. In their report published online in Cancer Discovery, the team also identifies potential targets for future treatments. "We set out to find the most important regulators of gene expression programs in medulloblastoma," says senior author Miguel Rivera, MD, of theMGH Department of Pathology / and the Center for Cancer Research. "To do that we used a powerful genomic technology called chromatin profiling to map all the genomic elements contributing to transcription regulation in Group 3 medulloblastoma - the most aggressive subtype. This goes beyond measuring gene express

uber denies waymo self-driving tech theft

Uber has denied stealing autonomous car technology from Alphabet’s Waymo, after the Google spin-off accused the ride-sharing firm of copying its sensor technology. The allegations were made earlier this week, with Waymo saying that it was alerted to the issue inadvertently when a supplier sent over schematics of one of Uber’s LIDAR designs. That design – for the sensor rig which scans the world around a self-driving car, mapping it in real-time – was strikingly similar to technology Waymo says it had developed itself. An investigation, the company said, revealed that a former employee had downloaded masses of data on Waymo’s LIDAR development before leaving the firm. Andrew Levandowski subsequently set up Otto, a rival autonomous vehicle technology company. Uber then acquired that business

how driverless cars could leave humans behind within five years

Self-driving cars – regarded by many Australians as a form of "science fiction" – will be commercially available within five years and could eventually become so advanced that humans are regarded as "drunk robots" who are banned from driving, a federal parliamentary inquiry has heard.In a submission to the inquiry, the mayors of Australia's capital cities say they expect autonomous cars to become commonplace between 2020 and 2025 and be safely moving in traffic with traditional cars.
Google has experimented with its own self-driving car known as Waymo. Photo: SuppliedThe mayors say the shift to autonomous cars could require a "complete reimagining" of the long-term infrastructure needs of cities, reduce the need for inner-city car parks and encourage people to live further away from work

azeri gas pipeline to start pumping gas by 2020 | news

The Southern Gas Corridor will start pumping gas from the Caspian Sea to Europe by 2020, its backers said on Thursday, despite the risk of delays to this option for reducing dependence on Russia.Politicians and ministers meeting in Baku backed the $40 billion, 3,500-kilometer chain of pipelines, a step toward curbing Russia’s one-third share of Europe’s natural gas market.The Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) is the project’s end piece, joining up with the Trans Anatolian Pipeline at the Turkish border, then crossing Greece and Albania to reach Italy. But the slow pace of work in Italy’s Puglia region and growing concern over Azerbaijan’s ability to honor its supply commitments – it faces domestic shortfalls – have knocked confidence in the project.[Reuters]

if you want to prevent dementia, here's what to know

Getty ImagesYou've heard the saying before: “use it or lose it.” Studies show that people who utilize their brains more—by furthering their education, learning a new language or musical instrument or keeping a rich network of relationships with family and friends—tend to have lower rates of dementia and problems with their thinking later in life. Nothing can completely prevent a certain amount of decline in cognitive functions that comes with age (that's normal) but keeping the brain in good working order can lessen the consequences.Here’s what the latest science suggests about what can—and can’t—prevent cognitive decline.EducationIn a new study published in Neuroepidemiology that analyzed results from the memory tests of more than 11,000 older Europeans, researchers found that education c
