  • Helium will Keep Your Pants Connected to the Interwebs

    Helium is light. It makes balloons float. It gives me a high voice. And I just love it. Helium is ALSO light in another way, bandwidth, data. We’re talking about the IoT startup, Helium, which offers more effective ways for your toaster and your car to talk to each other, sans the high voice.
    Crypto-Powered IoT Networks Are on Their Way to Over 250 US Cities – CoinDesk
    Excerpt:
    When internet-of-things (IoT) startup Helium first announced its crypto-mining modems, sales of the devices were limited to users in Austin, Texas.

  • A gene-editing first: scientists tried CRISPR to fight HIV – News 12 New Jersey

    CRISPR is being used to attack the Aids virus for the first time.  Can science end Aids with the gene-editing power of CRISPR.

    The work could lead to a breakthrough in Aids research that could be particularly effective at helping children afflicted with the disease.

    News 12 New Jersey
    Scientists are reporting the first use of the gene-editing tool CRISPR to try to cure a patient’s HIV infection by providing blood cells that were altered to resist the AIDS virus.

    The gene-editing tool has long been used in research labs, and a Chinese scientist was scorned last year when he revealed he used it on embryos that led to the birth of twin girls.

  • When AI Creates AI — Who Owns the Rights? | Davis Wright Tremaine LLP – JD Supra

    More problematic, however, is the treatment of inventions discovered either wholly or in part by the artificial intelligence. Since inventorship resides only in humans, the USPTO is ill equipped to handle the ramifications when an AI discovers a new malaria drug or designs a new, easier-to-handle container.

    While attributing inventorship of an AI-generated invention to the AI’s human creator may seem like a reasonable solution, in some cases the human’s actions and the realization of the invention might be so far separated in time and intervening events, and proximate cause questions, that it can be hard to square naming the human as an inventor.
