Three Useful Nuggets of Information
My weekly tips from around the web to get you thinking.
1. Robots are helping dementia patients remember their lives. 🤖
With a shortage of nursing home workers, Pepper is part of a pilot program to help seniors physically and mentally. The special power of this android is its ability to use new technology—like showing videos and pictures of family members from the patient's youth—to bring back old memories so that dementia patients can reconnect with their lives before their illness set in. (CBS News)
2. The quantum internet: science or fiction?
Researchers from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics created up to 14 entangled photons in an optical resonator, which they prepared into quantum physical states with great precision. The researchers' new method could make it easier to build powerful quantum computers, and their findings also have implications for secure data transmission. (TNW)
3. Could AI stop the next pandemic before it starts?
Researchers from renowned universities in the US have developed a computer model that can predict which coronavirus variants will likely become dominant and cause outbreaks. They created a model that shows which lineages are more successful at spreading through the population and accounts for this success by showing what mutations they contain. (The Harvard Gazette)
Will a Pixar-developed standard become the HTML of the metaverse?
NVIDIA pushes the Universal Scene Description protocol as the foundation of interoperable content and experiences in the metaverse and dubbed it the "HTML of the metaverse". (RoadtoVR)
