(Image via the WALL++ team)   Our walls may soon be capable of doing a whole lot more other than separate spaces in a living environment. Researchers believe they are able to manipulate the walls by converting them into something much smarter and interactive. The high-end technology will be a result of the Wall++ prototype, something that can sense movement, detect electronic appliances in the room and even can sense where a person's body may be located based on their presence, touch and a ...
I'm trying to build a SCPI shell for Linux. I'd like to have it working over TCP/IP on a Raspberry Pi and a BeagleBone.   tl;dr It works. The rest of the blog series explains how to build a lab automation device that controls 8 outputs (2 of them relays), and read 8 inputs. With a Raspberry Pi and a PiFace Digital (2).     Here on element14, we've been playing with SCPI and microcontrollers. We have several instruments working on MSP432, Arduino and Hercules devices. This t ...
The new modifications uses neural networks and a compiled database to detect cancer cells on a given tissue. The new technology has room for potential for developing countries and those who are under-funded. Detected cancer cells using the AR microscope. (All Images via Google)   Google has introduced a new prototype that could be used to help diagnose patients with cancer and other diseases. The prototype's focus was presented at the American Association for Cancer Research as an AR (Aug ...
China's use of AI software will help with diagnosis and help to set the standard in the medical field. Medical research is being used widely with the support of artificial intelligence helping to examine medical scans and detect signs of diabetes. (Images via PereDoc & MIT)   Artificial Intelligence will soon be playing a key role in China's doctor shortage and will help to maintain it by assisting medical professionals. Next month, an algorithm will be put to use to help scan for lung ...
In my automated test processes, I have several places where I need to increase an instrument's voltage with a little step, do a measurement, then increase it again. Because it's used multiple times I've turned into a little module. This blog is born out of need. My "write to Excel" blocks were taking way too much real estate of my Labview main flow. This blog explains how I   What is this Step Increment Generator?  It's a small calculation block that allows you to increment a set ...
The gene editing tool CRISPR has seen a lot of modifications lately; some as a result of some creative minds in Hollywood and others from the scientific genius of scientists at UCLA. Kruglyak from UCLA. (Image via UCLA)   The Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats, also known as CRISPR, is a medical tool designed to help cure the diseases that are caused by the presence or absence or mutation of genes. CRISPR was revolutionary because it would allow scientists to diagnos ...
How to pass many signals to a submodule as a single dynamic signal. And how to log measurements to a spreadsheet. This blog is born out of need. My "write to Excel" blocks were taking way too much real estate of my Labview main flow. This blog explains how I   Why combine signals?  Many reasons. Here's mine: Some LabVIEW blocks can take in a number of signals. One example is the scope-like display and other graphs. You can give it multiple channels and it will draw them. The sam ...
Artificial intelligence has advanced to the point where machines can learn – but in simple ways. To date, the technology has learned patterns in their algorithm which has allowed it to expand their ability to be more sufficient. Recognizing people's faces, identifying vocal patterns associated with people, reading medical documents and they can even carry out their own conversation.   However, their ability to carry out conversations had to be worked on a bit further due to exploits ...
The Japanese carmaker Nissan is researching the possibility of driving our car with just our brain commands. The technology is expected to be ready by 2028. (Image via Nissan)   Every time there is mention of a robot or artificial intelligence, many consider that age-old cliché - whether robots will one day take over the world. The fear is justifiable, I suppose, but so far there is no evidence of robots’ ability to overthrow humankind let alone open a door.   Robots an ...
The BADGER nuclear detonation April 18, 1953, at the Nevada Test Site. (Image credit: National Nuclear Security Agency via Wikipedia)   The last time we were this close to imminent doom was back in 1953 when the US detonated its first hydrogen bomb, ditto with the Soviet Union shortly afterward, which pushed the proverbial Doomsday Clock to two minutes to midnight and here we are again. Back in 1945, a group of scientists that were involved with the Manhattan Project got together to create ...
