A Japanese minister in charge of cybersecurity has provoked astonishment by admitting he has never used a computer in his professional life, and appearing confused by the concept of a USB drive.
Poor leadership, budgetary constraints, deficient IT systems and a lack of qualified staff mean another attack on the health service is inevitable.
Facebook has filed a patent application that would identify elements of photographs to make it easier to target families with ads, by analyzing the photos they post.
Researchers have used a neural network to generate artificial fingerprints that work as a “master key” for biometric identification systems and prove fake fingerprints can be created.
This facial mapping technology has been designed to improve television language dubbing, but it also has strong potential for those seeking to deceive.
As industry and academia became more intertwined, conflicts of interest arose when professors formed companies or partnerships to patent or otherwise commercialize their discoveries.
Many people don’t realize to what extent they’re being manipulated online.
Review authors found that psychological well-being influenced heart health through biological processes, health behaviors and psychosocial resources.
The flower-based chemical compounds that are the basis for the perfumes and colognes we use today have been providing olfactory excitement to pollinating insects and other animals since the mid-Cretaceous Period.
The immune system can stop the growth of a cancerous tumor without actually killing it. The study's authors call the cancer-immune system stalemate equilibrium. During equilibrium, the immune system both decreases the cancer's drive to replicate and kills some of the cancerous cells, but not quickly enough to eliminate or shrink the tumor.
With hindered memory maintenance, it's much more difficult to pick up a task where you left off without missteps.

The body has evolved anti-cancer responses that direct and slow the evolution of life-threatening cancer cells by not killing off too many cells too quickly. Natural adaptive therapies would use a similar approach to keep tumor size stable, while slowing the evolution of resistance. This strategy may be especially useful to prolong lifespan and quality of life in patients after a cancer has metastasized.
This discovery is unfortunately of little economic interest to pharmaceutical groups. The molecule is indeed simple and non-patentable and cancer prevention studies require a follow-up over many years.
Even during short bouts of sleep we process information that we are not consciously aware of.
Data indicates that 8 weeks of progressive plyometric training results in improvements in parameters of high-speed and low-speed muscular strength with no appreciable change in speed or agility. Additionally, the improvement in low-speed muscular strength observed from 8 weeks of progressive plyometric training was comparable to the results observed from 8 weeks of progressive strength training.
Education can be leveraged to help enhance an individual's economic decision-making quality or economic rationality.
