  Nobel Prize winner leads team to develop new technology: 5 minutes to detect new crown virus

A research team led by Jennifer Doudna, a 2020 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry and a professor at the University of California, Berkeley, used CRISPR gene editing technology to propose a method that can detect the new coronavirus in just 5 minutes. The test doesn’t require expensive lab equipment to run and can be used in doctors’ offices, schools and office buildings. The related results were published on the preprint platform medRxiv.

It looks like an infallible test, says Max Wilson, a molecular biologist at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

In May, two research groups reported a CRISPR-based test for the new coronavirus that could detect the virus in about an hour, much faster than the 24 hours required by traditional detection methods. The newly proposed detection method is currently the fastest diagnostic method based on CRISPR. (Source: China Science Journal)

Microsoft and partners are working to shrink data deserts that limit access to AI

AI-based tools, such as computer vision and voice interfaces, have the potential to transform the lives of people with disabilities, but in reality, these AI models are often built with very little data from these people. Microsoft is working with a number of nonprofit partners to help make these tools reflect the needs and everyday realities of people living in conditions such as blindness and limited mobility.

Microsoft yesterday announced a number of efforts co-led by advocacy groups hoping to make a difference to this “data desert” that limits AI inclusivity.

The first was a collaboration with Team Gleason, an organization formed to raise awareness of the neuromotor degenerative disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS for short. What they worry about is the question above about facial recognition. People with ALS have a variety of symptoms and assistive technologies that interfere with algorithms that have never been seen before. This becomes a problem if, for example, a company wants to ship eye-tracking software that relies on facial recognition, and Microsoft certainly wants to do the same. (Source: cnBeta)
