NYU and Facebook team up to supercharge MRI scans with AI

NYU and Facebook team up to supercharge MRI scans with AI Magnetic resonance imaging is an invaluable tool in the medical field, but it's also a slow and cumbersome process. NYU has been working on a way to accelerate this process, and is now collaborating with Facebook with the goal of cutting down MRI durations by 90 percent by applying AI-based imaging tools. It's important at the outset to distinguish this effort from other common uses of AI in the medical imaging field.


UNAM and Mexico City sign agreement for better air quality

UNAM and Mexico City sign agreement for better air quality Mexico, Aug. 20 (Notimex).- In order to influence more effectively public policies on air quality, the rector of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM, for its acronym in Spanish), Enrique Graue Wiechers, and the head of the city government, José Ramón Amieva Gálvez, signed an agreement to conduct investigations of the atmosphere. When signing the commitment in Ciudad Universitaria, it was indicated that in addition to the joint training, the main hallmark of this agreement is that researchers from the Center for Atmospheric Sciences are those who will operate the specialized and newly acquired equipment. The Ministry of the Environment of Mexico City acquired a TAG-GC / MS (Thermal Desorption Aerosol Gas coupled to a Gas Chromatograph-Mass Spectrometer) to identify with high resolution the compounds of the suspended particles. Amieva Gálvez explained that it is a five million pesos equipment, of which there are only five in the world and it is the only one in Latin America; it is ideal for the detection of pollutants, especially to find the composition and location of PM2.5 particles, the most harmful for human health. "The acquisition of equipment and the use of public resources implies a great responsibility and what better way than to leave it in the hands of this academic institution (UNAM)," he said at the Center for Atmospheric Sciences, where the specialized equipment will operate. He explained that due to their size, these microparticles had not yet been studied; however, he said, it is known that they generate a large number of effects on the health of people, from pregnancy to old age. The president of the city estimated that in the next three months the works would begin to give results. In his opportunity, Graue Wiechers mentioned that the equipment will allow to recognize the harmful particles to contribute to generate new public policies that allow to live and to breathe better in Mexico City. The agreement, he said, is a "recognition that government decisions must be taken with scientific evidence, we must work hand in hand with science and government to aspire to a better future," emphasized the university rector. In this regard, the minister of the local environment, Tanya Müller García, said that in Mexico City the organic fraction of PM2.5 particles represents 50 percent of its mass and the smaller they are the more harmful to health. "Today we know that approximately eight percent of PM2.5 particles are black carbon; 33 percent is an inorganic fraction; but we do not know 59 percent of these particles, and with this new equipment scientists will investigate precisely those," he said.

Russia says will not deploy arms in space first: Ifax

Russia says will not deploy arms in space first: Ifax MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia does not plan to put weapons in space first and considers this to be an important signal that Washington should not ignore, Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov was quoted as saying by the Interfax news agency on Monday. The United States last week voiced suspicion over Russia's pursuit of new space weapons, including a mobile laser system to destroy satellites in space, and the launch of a new inspector satellite which was acting in an "abnormal" way.
