Marc Katz, MD, touches the heart of the man, very softly. Then he takes his index finger and his thumb, presses them against the place of interest and… he pinches.

To zoom out.

Fortunately, the cardiothoracic surgeon is not manipulating a real heart, but rather an augmented reality (AR) model of a real heart, using a holographic headset made by Microsoft and imaging software created by Virginia-based ClearView Surgical. If surgeons and tech companies have a say, it’s the future of surgery — and it’s not that far off.

Most people have heard of Virtual Reality (VR), a completely immersive experience that replaces your real environment with a simulated environment. It’s everywhere these days: movies, video games, real estate. AR is slightly different. Instead of using a simulated environment, AR adds digital elements to your real environment. She too begins to slip into everyday life. Want to see what this sofa looks like in your living room? Open an app and you can see for yourself. It’s AR.

The software uses Microsoft’s HoloLens 2, a device anyone can buy.

As Katz manipulates the organ in all directions, he resembles someone trying to walk through a darkened room – hands outstretched in front, gently feeling furniture or walls. But from Katz’s perspective, thanks to AR, what he sees is a very real heart hovering above his second-floor office.

How it works—and it’s radically simplified—ClearView Surgical engineers build exact 3D models of patients’ hearts (though it could be any organ; Katz said the heart is the one of the most complicated because it is always in motion), using information from CT scans. In turn, these patterns then allow the surgeon to manipulate the heart in any direction. Need to dismantle a valve? No problem. What’s behind that ventricle? We’ll take a look. By combining technology with medicine, surgeons like Katz will one day be able to look at — and touch — a patient’s heart without actually opening it up. The result: zero risk, tons of rewards.

Although not yet used in actual practice (Katz and ClearView Surgical seem to think we’re still at least a year away), an idea that once sounded like a Hollywood fantasy is now much closer to becoming a non- scientific fiction.

“Imagine what this technology will allow us to do,” Katz said. Take the core apart, flip it, you name it — it’s possible, he says. All without endangering the patient. Katz even thinks the technology could eventually lead to simulations of surgery, giving the surgeon the luxury of experimentation.

Dan Neuwirth, co-owner of ClearView Surgical, said despite drastic improvements in imaging technology over the years, the way doctors view images has remained largely unchanged since the 1950s. , people in the medical field looked at these images on films or computer screens. In other words, everything is 2D. Of course, technology has made it possible to simulate in three dimensions, but in the end, the image that the doctor looks at is always flat.

Neuwirth and his co-owner Daniel Salzburg knew there was a tremendous opportunity, using today’s technology, to change that. So they approached Katz and a handful of other surgeons across the country and asked for comment. It is a partnership where each party brings the necessary value. Katz provides the imaging and surgical know-how, ClearView Surgical manufactures the augmented version – so surgeons can manipulate it however they please.

“With Dr. Katz, we can tap into the mind of a super-accomplished surgeon and together we can find ways to improve patient outcomes,” Salzburg said.

“It really is a great partnership. Dr. Katz is a very forward-thinking guy in terms of technology,” Neuwirth added.

Neuwirth and Salzburg see this as the tip of the iceberg when it comes to using AR in medicine.

“Obviously it’s a big help for really complex cases like Dr. Katz works,” Neuwirth said. “It’s one end of the spectrum. But we also see it eventually helping residents with common surgeries as well.

From a medical perspective, Katz sees this as a first step in what he hopes will be a wide range of medical applications.

“Imagine being in the operating room and taking the images we have and merging them with three-dimensional images,” Katz said. “It would be like looking through someone’s body like I was wearing x-ray glasses.”

The first official images have been unveiled for the Halloween spirit film. In April, it was reported that a new movie was in the works that would take place at a Spirit Halloween, the popular seasonal retail store. It was also revealed that the film would star Christopher Lloyd (Back to the future) and Rachel Leigh Cook (She is all that) in lead roles. By Varietytwo new images have just been released, one (above) featuring Lloyd as wealthy real estate developer Alec Windsor, who decades ago disappeared on Halloween night” without a trace and ever since his cursed spirit would haunt the town every year on October 31 for an hour.”

VIDEO OF THE DAY

The second image (below) features Cook as Sue, a woman who has recently remarried after the death of her first husband. When a Spirit Halloween store opens in an abandoned mall, “Sue’s teenage son Jake and his friends decide to spend the night there as a challenge. But they get more than they bargained for when ‘an angry spirit owns the animatronic characters inside.” You can read the official login line below.

When a new Spirit Halloween store pops up in a deserted mall, three college friends who think they’ve outgrown the trick or the treat dare to spend the night locked inside the store on Halloween night. But they soon discover that the store is haunted by an angry evil spirit who has possessed the creepy animatronic figures. Children embark on a thrilling and spooky adventure in order to survive the night and avoid becoming possessed themselves.

David Poag directed the film, which has already wrapped filming, using a screenplay by Billie Bates. With Lloyd and Cook, Halloween spirit stars Donovan Colan (Zoe), Dylan Martin Frankel (The Raven’s House), Jaiden Smith (Blue blood), Marissa Reyes (The Raven’s House) and Marla Gibbs (El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie). Noor Ahmed, Shannon Houchins and Mike Haggerty produce while Clay Epstein serves as executive producer.

Spirit Halloween is expected to arrive this fall

Halloween spirit was presented at Cannes with Film Mode Entertainment in charge of international sales. It is already slated for a North American release by Strike Back Studios in association with Film Mode Entertainment.

“We are thrilled to present exclusive never-before-seen images of Halloween spirit to buyers around the world for the first time at Cannes and to give audiences around the world a taste of the ultimate family and children’s adventure film,” Epstein reportedly said. “The global market response continues to be positively overwhelming.”

“One of the reasons I immediately connected to the script is that it’s very inspired by some of my favorite adventure movies for kids growing up from The Goonies, Gremlins, Monster Squad and so many great movies made by Amblin Entertainment,” added Ahmed.

Halloween spirit is set to release later this year, likely just in time for the Halloween season, but no official release date has been announced as of yet.

Home Satellite Launches, Moon Landings and Station in Lunar Orbit: Exciting Times Loom in the 21st Century Space Race – Dal News https://web-a-photo.com/home-satellite-launches-moon-landings-and-station-in-lunar-orbit-exciting-times-loom-in-the-21st-century-space-race-dal-news/ Thu, 12 May 2022 13:48:36 +0000 https://web-a-photo.com/home-satellite-launches-moon-landings-and-station-in-lunar-orbit-exciting-times-loom-in-the-21st-century-space-race-dal-news/ Satellites that weigh less than a sack of potatoes.

Satellites that weigh less than a sack of potatoes. Low cost reusable rockets. A new generation of on-board computers in space. The planned return of humans to the moon.

Put it all together and you have a new space race — one in which Canadian researchers and companies are poised to play an important role.

“You can go online now and buy components to build your own CubeSat (miniature satellite),” says engineer Tony Pellerin of the Canadian Space Agency’s Space Science and Technology Branch. “You drag and drop them into a shopping cart, pay with your credit card, and they ship it to your house. So you can build your own spaceship. Accessibility is there, which it was not 10 years ago.

Pellerin and his fellow engineer Arad Gharagozli (MASc’22) will be panelists at the next Dalhousie Open Dialogue Live event, The space race of the 21st century. The panel takes place online and in person as part of Graduate days May 26 at 6:30 p.m. The event is open to all members of the Dal community as well as the general public.

There are currently some 5,000 satellites in orbit, but according to UCS Satellite Database this number could reach 100,000 by the end of the decade. The explosion of the satellite, says Astronomy.comis driven by a constellation of factors, including smaller spacecraft that can be launched inexpensively into low orbits.

Dalhousie will launch the CubeSat satellite later this year

CubeSats are the smallest of these satellites, weighing around 3 to 5 kg, says Pellerin. (Compare that to the once standard 500kg satellites.) He is currently working with universities across the country, including Dalhousie, on 15 CubeSat projects launching later this year. They are designed for a range of applications, including monitoring potato growth in Prince Edward Island and using lasers to calibrate ground-based telescopes. The Dalhousie team’s contribution is LORIS — a satellite that will extract more information from images by overlaying infrared and visible data.

LORIS comes from the Dalhousie Space Systems Lab, founded in 2017 by space entrepreneur Gharagozli who founded the Halifax-based firm GALAXIA. “Aerospace is a very conservative industry in its nature,” he says, “but you can see a new trend of companies emerging, and all they want to do is take risks.”

GALAXIA, says Gharagozli, “builds satellites that can process information in space and are also able to ask other people to create applications for use in space.” Advances in technology and lower cost missions have made the small on-board computers that GALAXIA builds feasible.

A changing playing field

In the past, says Gharagozli, “If you were building a computer for a satellite, it would have been for a $2 billion mission, for example. Now you’re looking at a mission that would cost between $200,000 and $400,000, which is really a game-changer.”

Pellerin agrees, saying advances in science and technology have “opened the door to many newcomers.” Combine that with the excitement generated by the Artemis programwhich will see the return of humans to the moon, and the planned Lunar Gateway orbital station, and you have a lot of “excitement in the [space] community.”

Dalhousie’s Open Dialogue Live series brings the community together for thought-provoking conversation and supports Dal’s vital role in sparking dialogue around important issues. All Open Dialogue Live conversations are free, but registration is required for live and in-person participants.

Register to attend: The space race of the 21st century

The conference will take place on May 26 in the McInnes Room of the Dalhousie Student Union Building, 6136 University Ave. The live stream will be available via Dalhousie Alumni and Friends Facebook Live and Dalhousie YouTube.

The panelists:

  • Tony Pellerin has worked at the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) since 1994. An electrical engineer with degrees from the University of Ottawa and Polytechnique Montréal, Pellerin is the manager of the mechanical and thermal engineering group of the Space Science and Technology Directorate of the CSA, responsible for supporting CSA space missions, including Canadarm3 and Gateway, which will provide support for future manned missions to the Moon.
  • Arad Gharagozli (MASc’22) is an electronic engineering technologist and electrical engineer. In 2017, he founded the Dalhousie Space Systems Lab (DSS), which aims to develop electrical and mechanical systems for space applications. The DSS team included over 200 students working on the CSA-funded LORIS project – the first satellite designed and built in Nova Scotia. In 2020, Arad launched GALAXIA, a space hardware and software company providing shared access to a series of smart Earth observation satellites on a pay-as-you-go basis using the MÖBIUS Constellation platform of the society.

A grounded plane returned to the gate of Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport on Tuesday after photos of air disasters appeared on passengers’ phones – sent, according to Israeli authorities, by nine people on board using the ” AirDrop” from the iPhone.

The incident, on the AndoluJet flight due to take off for Istanbul, was not a cyberattack on the Internet, said Ofer Lefler, spokesman for the Israel Airports Authority.

The nine suspects, described by police as Israeli citizens and among the passengers, were removed and could be prosecuted for spreading false information, the authority said. The offense carries a maximum prison sentence of three years in Israel.

“I’m sure the police and security authorities will find out why they (the suspects) did it,” Lefler told Channel 12 TV.

Passengers alarmed by the footage informed the flight crew, and the pilot made the correct call as he headed for the door, Lefler said.

“One woman passed out, another had a panic attack,” a passenger, identified only as Diana, told Channel 12.

The plane took off hours late after a security check of the plane, baggage and people on board, Lefler said.

“AirDrop”, which Lefler said was the method used for file transfer, allows an iPhone user to send images to other nearby devices, if they are configured to accept such input.

Apparently, the snake in the photo is a copper-headed snake known as the master of camouflage.

The snake has integrated itself impressively into the surroundings using the intricate pattern of its body.

Nature has given animals incredible abilities to help them survive in the wild. These abilities are most evident in smaller creatures and reptiles that must defend themselves against larger predators. Showcasing one of these characteristics of a creature, an image has been doing the rounds of the internet while leaving netizens perplexed. A Reddit user shared a photo of a forest patch covered in dry leaves and claimed that a snake was hiding there.

If you weren’t able to spot the reptile, don’t worry because most people couldn’t. But, let’s say there is a snake in the picture. The snake has integrated itself impressively into the surroundings using the intricate pattern of its body. Also, the brown color of dry leaves and soil further helps the snake hide in plain sight.

If you’re still having trouble spotting it, try looking at the center of the image. You will notice the snake coiled up and surrounded by leaves. Just like you, many Reddit users were left baffled by the mysterious image and failed to focus their eyes on the elusive snake. “Yeah, I don’t see it either,” wrote one user while another eagle-eyed user was able to spot the snake and left clues to help others find it. “Look to the left of the light green leaf in the center of the image,” the user wrote.

Apparently, the snake in the photo is a copper-headed snake known as the master of camouflage. Due to their earthy coloration, these snakes blend more easily into the environment, as seen in the photo.

Although they are poisonous, experts say copperheads are not dangerous until provoked. They are generally nocturnal and prefer to hide in cool, uncrowded places. Their diet consists mainly of rodents, frogs and lizards.

May 3 (Reuters) – Venture capital is taking a big leap into crypto in 2022.

Afraid of being left in the digital dust, private equity investors are rushing to crypto projects – blockchain-based applications and platforms powered by native cryptocurrencies from virtual metaverse and web3 economies. .

Venture capital investments in such projects totaled $10 billion globally in the first quarter of this year, the highest quarterly sum on record and more than double the level seen in the same period a year ago. , according to data from Pitchbook.

A trickle became a torrent: the annual totals for 2019, 2020 and 2021 were $3.7 billion, $5.5 billion and $28 billion.

“You see a lot of VC investment in many protocols because they all believe, like us, that some of these protocols are the infrastructure of the future,” said Steve Ehrlich, CEO of crypto brokerage Voyager. Digital.

Such projects, which can range from crypto exchanges and NFTs to decentralized financial applications and token issuers, are often referred to as protocols in reference to the rules embedded in their computer code.

The recent action is different from the past when venture capital investment levels tended to follow the price of bitcoin, albeit with a short lag, according to Alex Thorn, head of research at the IAEA. company at blockchain-focused bank Galaxy Digital in New York.

Crypto investment levels have continued to rise during a bitcoin price crash this year — it’s down about 16% — as well as during another drop last summer, Thorn notes.

“This decoupling demonstrates investors’ disbelief that a prolonged digital asset bear market is coming, as well as the significant amount of dry powder held by funds looking to allocate to the sector,” he wrote. last week.

The 2022 VC crypto craze also coincided with a crash in the benchmark Nasdaq (.IXIC) index, which is down 21%.

VC DATING WEB3

The number of M&A deals involving crypto target companies is also exploding globally as buzz builds around the metaverse of virtual worlds and the Web3 decentralized online utopia.

According to Dealogic, 73 deals have been closed so far in 2022 with a combined value of $8.8 billion, compared to 51 deals worth $6.8 billion for all of last year.

The rush for funding means crypto firms can afford to be picky, said Mildred Idada, founding partner of blockchain venture fund and accelerator Open Web Collective.

“The founders say, ‘There are five funds that want to invest in us, which one is going to bring the most value? ‘” she said.

In many cases, blockchain tech companies are interested in the brand value of backing established players and growing integration with the financial system, Idada added.

Some companies have gotten creative with how they raise funds. For example, Polygon, a platform for developing and scaling applications on the Ethereum blockchain, raised $450 million in February through a private sale of its cryptocurrency to investors, including the SoftBank Vision Fund 2 (9984.T).

“The main reason for this increase was to get institutions on our side and to increase Polygon’s visibility,” said co-founder Sandeep Nailwal.

Yet the entry of traditional venture capitalists accustomed to dealing with the red carpet into online developer communities pushing for decentralization is not without cultural clashes.

Many deep-pocketed venture capitalists find themselves forced to woo these developer communities behind potential targets, according to Alexandra Bertomeu-Gilles, risk manager at decentralized finance (DeFi) firm Aave.

“Some founders now… when they get money from investors, create agreements so that the investors don’t have a say in the governance of the company, or they can’t undo something that the majority of the rest of the community wants,” she said.

Civic groups and lawmakers have called for legislative changes to protect against sexual harassment online, such as requiring intimate images to be removed from websites within 24 hours of a complaint.

A discussion about the difficulties of implementing current regulations, as well as their seemingly insufficient protections, was prompted by amendments proposed by the Executive Yuan last month to address digital sexual harassment.

The proposals have limits, Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) lawmaker Fan Yun (范雲) said at a news conference in Taipei on Thursday.

There is no time limit for a website owner to remove an image when ordered to do so, and the police are not required to help enforce an order, she said. declared.

Additionally, education to prevent cases of digital harassment is not comprehensive enough, she said, adding that victims cannot directly apply for protective orders.

Fan said she will advocate for concerns raised by women’s groups and those targeted by online harassment, when the proposed changes are considered by the legislature.

Although the amendments include provisions regarding the “deletion of intimate images”, some of the language is unclear, New Power Party lawmaker Claire Wang (王婉諭) said, adding that a lack of oversight could lead to implementation difficulties.

The government should involve internet experts and online platform operators in its governance to ensure the implementation of appropriate regulations and mechanisms, she said.

Personnel specifically responsible for investigating cases of unauthorized use of intimate images are essential, she said, adding that cases should be regulated by the Prevention of Sexual Assault Crimes Act (性侵害犯罪防治法) and that technology should be developed to facilitate investigations.

DPP lawmaker Wu Yu-chin (吳玉琴) said the immediate removal of intimate images online is what victims most urgently need, but that’s not stipulated in the amendments.

Civic groups, including the Taipei Women’s Rescue Foundation, have also called for changes to the amendments, including that the needs of victims and the difficulties faced by the police be taken seriously.

Regulations should require offenders to immediately remove footage and protect criminal evidence from leaks when a case is reported to police, they said.

Images placed on foreign servers by Taiwanese should also be governed by Taiwanese law, they said.

The groups also called for mandatory guidance for offenders who distribute another person’s intimate images, as well as a clear prohibition on copying, distributing, delivering and displaying those images.

Comments will be moderated. Keep comments relevant to the article. Remarks containing abusive and obscene language, personal attacks of any kind or promotion will be removed and the user banned. The final decision will be at the discretion of the Taipei Times.
