Changing the world at 16!

Liam Foldi is 16 and created Kenshi Charity Candles as a Social Enterprise to make it easier for any person, club, school or charity to raise money easily.

Deepfakes – challenge and opportunity for innovators

Facebook, Microsoft and a number of US-based Universities have joined forces to sponsor a contest promoting R&D to combat deepfakes, or images/ videos/ other content altered through artificial intelligence (AI) to mislead viewers. Misleading information (or misinformation) is not new – propaganda is a tactic as old as time. However, with advancements in AI and a glut of data being generated and consumed on a daily basis, our ability to discern integrity at scale, in what we see, hear or read, is increasingly complex. why is this important? Isn’t trust the bedrock of a functioning and civil society? ie voting (democratic elections), news, media, personal reputations, business transactions, politics. In the first known case of phishing and scamming using audio deepfakes – in March malicious actors were able to create a near-perfect impersonation of a chief executive’s voice – and then used the audio to fool his energy company into transferring euro220K/USD$243K to their bank account. We need to build capacity & capability to detect when something doesn’t have integrity – video, audio, image, text. At the moment, we rely on our human intuition and capabilities but this is becoming difficult to discern (and how do we teach these human skills going forward?) The deepfake detection challenge is a start to what should be huge investment & innovation opportunities going forward. the challenge: https://deepfakedetectionchallenge.ai/ Image by analogicus from Pixabay

Using machine learning for drug development

AstraZeneca will partner with Schrödinger to use the company’s advanced computing platform to accelerate drug discovery efforts. Work conducted by AstraZeneca’s medicinal and computational chemists will be used by Schrödinger’s computational platform to improve the design of compounds. In turn, this will identify potential new therapeutic candidates. Machine learning systematically analyses data to find connections with the artificial intelligence used to deduce previously unknown connections. Results are then used to gain a better understanding of the mechanisms of disease and the compounds that can treat them. https://www.biospace.com/article/astrazeneca-bolsters-machine-learning-use-for-drug-development-with-schrodinger-deal/

AR Swimming Goggles that can Display Multiple Performance Metrics

Sports tech startup, Form, has just released the first-ever augmented reality (AR)-enabled swim goggles, introducing seamless fitness tracking to the pool. Developed in partnership with Olympic swimmers, the goggles can reach a depth of up to 32 feet. Attached to the side of one lens, Form’s computer sits embedded in a small black box, enabling swimmers to display performance metrics in real-time such as total distance, stroke count, total calories and split time. Using accelerometer data, the goggles’ onboard processor can even detect stroke types, additionally noting when swimmers turn around or take a break. https://www.wired.com/review/form-swim-goggles/

Robotic tail providing humans with advanced motor capabilities

Researchers from the Keio University in Tokyo have developed an artificial biomimicry-inspired tail capable of extending the human’s innate body functions. The appendage which predominantly enhances the user’s balance and strength could provide a multitude of benefits to various industries, including physically intensive occupations such as construction work, whereby the tail’s additional support could improve worker safety. Patients recovering from neurological or orthopedic injuries could also use the tail for rehabilitative purposes. However, this new technology currently has limitations in terms of its portability and accessibility.

Eating at different restaurants from one location

The creation of a virtual food hall would allow the accessibility to different restaurants from one dining location for a group of people. Guests would be able to order from multiple brands from a self-order kiosk, pay in a single transaction and receive their meal in under six minutes. This could enhance the appeal of dining outside and ultimately represents a larger accessibility to a variety of foods with friends.

A simple, affordable sticker that tests if water is safe to drink

The 2018 Young Australian of the Year in NSW won the prestigious Stockholm Junior Water Prize last week. Ms Butson’s SODIS ultraviolet radiation sticker accurately measures the solar UV exposure required to sanitise drinking water. Costing less than one US cent to produce, it has the potential to revolutionise the way some of the world’s poorest people can be certain that the water they are drinking is safe. https://www.smh.com.au/politics/federal/this-will-stick-in-our-minds-for-a-long-time-macinley-s-invention-could-change-lives-for-one-cent-20190831-p52mm4.html
