At its latest Ignite conference, Microsoft announced a robotics and sensor platform, Premonition, which will be monitoring disease carriers like mosquitos and flies.It will also be sampling these disease carriers and the samples will be analyzed by a cloud-based software stack that will soon be available for a private preview.Microsoft stated that they want to create a system that is similar to a weather monitoring system but it will work to stop the disease outbreak.This is a quite ambitious project and Microsoft has partnered with the Convergence Accelerator Program of National Science Foundation, Johns Hopkins University, Vanderbilt University, the University of Pittsburgh, and the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation to test the tools which it is developing under this project after a lot of research.The company is currently focusing on the diseases transmitted by mosquitoes and in its Redmond campus, they have set up a “Premonition Proving Ground” to allow the researchers to test their robots, to train them, and to analyze the samples they collect.This is an Arthropod Containment Level 2 facility where they can raise and analyze mosquitoes but the company wants this system to be capable of monitoring the entire biome.Till now, the company has said to have scanned more than 80 trillion base-pairs of genomic material for biological threats.According to Ethan Jackson, the senior director of Premonition, the 2014 Ebola outbreak led the company to realize the role of AI and cloud computing in monitoring the biome in new ways.
(University of Pittsburgh) The University of Pittsburgh's Nathan Youngblood and Feng Xiong, assistant professors of electrical and computer engineering, have received $380,000 from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to study phase-change materials and overcome the challenges inherent in the technology.
(University of Pittsburgh) A successful small-diameter tissue-engineered vascular graft (TEVG) will grow and remodel into a native-like artery that can save a life. A team led by Pitt's David Vorp received a $1.1M award from the NIH to optimize this emerging technology for cardiovascular disease. They will examine the best combination(s) of active "payload" and scaffold to develop a feasible alternative to the decades-old practice of using vessels harvested from a patient's own chest or leg.
Track Your Progress – It’s pointless to set a goal if you have no way to track your progress toward that goal.We like the act of journaling.Make an entry in your journal for each day Cross Fit Gyms In Pittsburgh.Then, mark the number of times you changed your mindset during that day.If you really want to get into journaling, write down your negative thought and how you changed it to be positive.As the change becomes more effective, you will use the journal less and less because your mind will be more positive.
(University of Pittsburgh) A multi-disciplinary group of researchers is awarded $1.89 million from DOE to create a new model for traffic intersections that reduces energy consumption utilizing artificial intelligence that links vehicles and infrastructure.
(University of Pittsburgh) Piervincenzo Rizzo, PhD, professor of civil and environmental engineering at the University of Pittsburgh's Swanson School of Engineering, is leading a project that will help glaucoma patients monitor their intraocular pressure (IOP) at home, giving them and their doctors a clearer picture of eye health. The project recently received $1,099,984 from the National Science Foundation.
(University of Pittsburgh) Researchers have created a machine-learning algorithm that can pick up on subtle signs of osteoarthritis - too abstract to register in the eye of a trained radiologist - on an MRI scan taken years before symptom onset.
Week 2 kicks off with a battle of Ohio's two teams.
Last Sunday was the 2018 Pittsburgh Marathon Cross Fit Pittsburgh.A year earlier was the first time I ran in the Marathon, agreeing to complete one leg (the shortest) of the Marathon relay on a team for the gym.In the end, I completed two legs because one of our members wanted to run with someone.The 9+ miles I completed was the most I ever ran at one time.This year, I signed up for the same two legs on one of our relay teams, and decided at the last minute to run a third leg with another member.My goal was to complete three legs (16.7 miles) so that I could say I ran more than a half marathon.
(University of Pittsburgh) Two projects led by professors in the Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh's Swanson School of Engineering have recently received funding from the National Science Foundation.
Next weekend is the next local competition Cross Fit Gyms In Pittsburgh.It will also be the last one for a while.The Patriot Games is CrossFit RAW’s annual team competition in Gibsonia, PA.RAW is known for putting on some challenging competitions, but we at Industrial Athletics won’t back down.We have two teams going.The Coaches: Matt, Jen, Mel, and Fireman Dave will be one team.
The NFL is finally back with a jam-packed slate of games on Sunday.
The global Glass Insulation Market has been growing at a moderate pace over the past five years owing to the increase in demand from the non-residential construction and residential construction segments.Currently, the global glass insulation market is dominated by various key players, such as Owens Corning (U.S.), Nippon Sheet Glass Co. Ltd. (Japan), Johns Manville (U.S.), Knauf Insulation (U.S.), PPG Industries, Inc. (U.S.), Certain Teed Corporation (U.S.), Pittsburgh Corning Corporation (U.S.), Arabian Fiberglass Insulation Co., Ltd. (Saudi Arabia), Saint-Gobain ISOVER (U.S.), and Glassolutions Saint-Gobain (U.K.).Request Report Sample @ https://www.marketsandmarkets.com/requestsampleNew.asp?id=41122796Several new product developments/launches were undertaken in the past few years by various key companies, such as Owens Corning, Nippon Sheet Glass Co. Ltd., Johns Manville, and others (Knauf Insulation (U.S.), PPG Industries, Inc. (U.S.).For instance, Owens Corning introduced a pipe insulation product, ASJ Max FIBERGLAS, for use in concealed, hot & cold, and exposed piping in industrial and commercial applications.This product would help the company provide contractors and mechanical engineers with high performance insulation under tough environments in the piping application.Owens Corning also introduced EcoTouch PINK FIBERGLAS insulation product range with PureFiber Technology.This an environment-friendly product range that uses natural ingredients with over 70% of its content being recycled.Knauf Insulation expanded its glass wool manufacturing site in Vise, Belgium, making it the company’s largest glass wool unit in Europe.
(Carnegie Mellon University) The science community has responded to the COVID-19 pandemic with such a flurry of research studies that it is hard for anyone to digest them all, underscoring a long-standing need to make scientific publication more accessible, transparent and accountable, two artificial intelligence experts assert in a data science journal.
