From Chat bots to Chat co writers

As machine learning technology rapidly improves in it's ability to explore the world visually, linguistically and sonically much like we do we will move from the current era of leveraging low context interpretation of our words to get things we want done completed to having full on conversations with our AI.

As it regards communication ...when we engage in social media with other humans we will have the aid of our AI providing guidance in real time...telling us what we've typed is not true or providing suggestions for new information based on searches of the web for context relevant information.

Imagine having a chat conversation or a forum conversation and having your AI indicate that you got a fact wrong and that you should correct it ...imagine it finding the flaws in the statements of those you are communicating with...allowing you to correct them.

The need to disengage the conversation in order to go research the minutia of the content will go away as our guide AI does that for us in real time. Human to Human conversations will really end up being Human + AI to Human + AI conversation.

It will be interesting to see how this helps our intelligence....more and more we will be passive consumers of new information...freed of even the small labor of actively searching for by watching us our AI will be able to understand the context and provide relevant information or correction...a disembodied AI super assistant.

I think we are at least a decade away from assistants that do this well enough to start seeing people using them for now the chat bots in message applications are just the beginning of what is to come.

Highly targeted Cpg vaccine immunotherapy for a range of cancer


This will surely go down as a seminal advance in cancer therapy. It reads like magic:

So this new approach looks for the specific proteins that are associated with a given tumors resistance to attack by the body's T cells, it then adjusts those T cells to be hyper sensitive to the specific oncogenic proteins targeted. These cells become essentially The Terminator​ T cells in the specific tumor AND have the multiplied effect of traveling along the immune pathway of spreading that the cancer many have metastasized. This is huge squared because it means you can essentially use targeting one tumor to identify and eliminate distal tumors that you many not even realize exist.

This allows the therapy for treating cancer to, for the first time; end the "wack a mole" problem that has frustrated traditional shot gun methods of treatment involving radiation and chemotherapy ...which by their nature unfortunately damage parts of the body that are not cancer laden but …

Engineers versus Programmers

I have found as more non formally trained people enter the coding space, the quality of code that results varies in an interesting way.

The formalities of learning to code in a structured course at University involve often strong focus on "correctness" and efficiency in the form of big O representations for the algorithms created.

Much less focus tends to be placed on what I'll call practical programming, which is the type of code that engineers (note I didn't use "programmers" on purpose) must learn to write.

Programmers are what Universities create, students that can take a defined development environment and within in write an algorithm for computing some sequence or traversing a tree or encoding and decoding a string. Efficiency and invariant rules are guiding development missions. Execution time for creating the solution is often a week or more depending on the professor and their style of teaching code and giving out problems. This type of coding is devo…

First *extra Galactic* planetary scale bodies observed

This headline

So every so often I see a story that has me sitting at the keyboard for a few seconds...actually trying to make sure the story is not some kind of satire site because the headline reads immediately a nonsense.
This headline did just that.
So I proceeded to frantically click through and it appears it was a valid news item from a valid news source and my jaw hit the floor.
Many of you know that we've been finding new planets outside of our solar system for about 25 years now.
In fact the Kepler satellite and other ground observatories have been accelerating their rate of extra-solar planet discoveries in the last few years but those planets are all within our galaxy the Milky Way.
The three major methods used to detect the bulk of planets thus far are wobble detection, radial transit and this method micro lensing which relies on a gravitational effect that was predicted by Einstein in his general theory of relativity exactly 103 years ago.
