Astounding innovations in medical technology are constantly being researched and developed. From machine learning AI that can predict patient lifespan to devices that can turn your skin cells into any organ — behind laboratory doors lie a breadth of ideas which can expand the limits of medicine and redefine public health strategy. However, unless your hobbies consist of scrawling through scientific journals and technology reviews, it’s pretty easy to miss out on the most promising tech from the health sciences. So here’s a list of some of the best recent breakthrough tech that could change the way we think about medicine and health. 1. A regenerative nanodevice that “heals in one touch.” Picture going to the hospital after a horrific accident where you’re at risk of losing your leg. You go the emergency room in full panic and the doctor applies a small chip on your skin, which then converts your skin into the necessary cells to heal and save that leg… (READ MORE)
In a fresh warning about AI, a UN research institute has said that machine intelligence and robotics could destabilise the world, according to a report in the Guardian. The scary warning from the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI) comes ahead of the opening of Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics in The Hague – UN’s first centre focused towards artificial intelligence as well as the possible risks that could arise from such technologies. China, Russia, and the United States are already in the race of AI development. The nations are striving towards building autonomous weapon systems – machines which would have the capability to determine their course of action without human control. (READ MORE)
Crane, Mo. – April 26, 2016 – The Telly Awards has named Defender Films as a Silver winner in the 37th Annual Telly Awards for its documentary film Inhuman: The Next and Final Phase of Man is Here. With over 13,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this—the Telly’s highest award and recognition for excellence—is truly an honor.
Inhuman, the first release from Defender Films, is an investigative documentary from the internationally acclaimed team at SkyWatchTV. Inhuman travels the globe, interviewing internationally renowned experts, to unveil for the first time how breakthroughs in science, technology, and philosophy—including cybernetics, bioengineering, nanotechnology, machine intelligence, and synthetic biology—are poised to create mind-boggling changes to everything we know about Homo sapiens.
A fast-growing cultural movement known as Transhumanism intends to use these powerful new fields of science and technology to redesign our minds, our memories, our physiology, our offspring, and even perhaps—as Professor Joel Garreau, Lincoln Professor of Law, claims—our immortal souls.
The Telly Awards was founded in 1979 and is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, the finest video and film productions, and online commercials, video and films. Winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world.
A prestigious judging panel of over 500 accomplished industry professionals judged the competition, upholding the historical standard of excellence that Telly represents. The Silver Council evaluated entries to recognize distinction in creative work – entries do not compete against each other – rather entries are judged against a high standard of merit. Less than 10% of entries are chosen as Winners of the Silver Telly, its highest honor.
“The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video,” said Linda Day, Executive Director of the Telly Awards. “Defender Films’ accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”
Defender Films CEO Tom Horn said, “Receiving the Silver Telly for our first film is a real honor, especially for a film on a complex topic that hasn’t received enough attention from Christian media. It’s a testimony to the talent and hard work of our team at Defender and SkyWatchTV.”

A robotics company introduced its new lifelike ‘bot last week. Sophia is touted as conscious, creative, and capable as any human. Except that during the presentation, Sophia may have accidentally revealed more than her creator intended.
Also: Another suicide bombing in Turkey; Russia backs the Kurds; Obama gives train-and-equip another try in Syria; the Earth gets buzzed by a pair of comets; and a public apology of sorts to Lord RayEl.
