Top Internet Security Tips For 2017

August 4, 2017

When you start using the Google search engine, you may feel protected and that the Internet is safe. But remember that your password is never as safe as you think, that someone with bad intentions might actually sneak onto your computer or phone if you visit unsafe pages on the internet.

There are plenty of recommendations that can be made in every area of ​​our online life, whether using email to work or social networks to comment on the TV. And although we review in depth our online use, something that helps a lot the guide launched by the Organization of Consumers and Users in alliance with Google itself, sometimes it is enough with general measures to greatly improve security.

How to Develop Reliable Medical Devices

June 26, 2017

Innovative medical devices cannot only help to reduce operational costs, but they can also significantly improve patient outcomes.

It is therefore essential to develop the best possible device to maximize an organization’s cost while improving healthcare. For this reason, we are looking at how to develop reliable medical devices.

A Prototype

Every good medical device should start with a prototype. After all, you won’t know if your idea will work until you have tested it for yourself or within a medical setting. It’s during this stage that you can bring your idea to fruition, before identifying any potential flaws and embarking with further testing. For example, you may need to undertake additional EMC and safety testing. It’s important to consider all the big and small details prior to development. The earlier you identify any flaws, the quicker you can take the medical device to market. What’s more, it will also help you to create the best possible prototype for the healthcare industry’s needs.

How Technology is Changing the Healthcare Sector

June 21, 2017

The healthcare sector has changed and improved at a rapid pace in recent years. These developments have occurred because of the many technological breakthroughs that have taken place. Below are some of the main ways technology has advanced and is currently changing the health care sector.

Training and Education

A wide range of internet technologies has made it much easier to learn new skills and obtain valuable qualifications in a wide range of disciplines, including healthcare. Courses like the online health information management degree can be completed online, without ever having to attend a university or a college in person. Programs like the online HIM degree are accredited programs, so they are recognized by healthcare organizations in the same way that traditional class-based degrees are recognized by these organizations.

The Rise of Technology in the Office

June 20, 2017

Very few businesses still use traditional methods when technology offers a quicker, and much smoother, alternative. Keeping your business efficient, your employees productive and profits rising, is the goal of many businesses, and so, ensuring your company invests in the best and most innovative tech is a must.

The use of technology in the office is increasing at a considerable rate. However, there are companies who persist with old-fashioned methods. Converting to a more tech-based office lifestyle can considerably better your company. Here’s how.

Experiments show that a few self-driving cars can dramatically improve traffic flow

May 10, 2017

The presence of just a few autonomous vehicles can eliminate the stop-and-go driving of the human drivers in traffic, along with the accident risk and fuel inefficiency it causes, according to new research. The finding indicates that self-driving cars and related technology may be even closer to revolutionizing traffic control than previously thought.

“Our experiments show that with as few as 5 percent of vehicles being automated and carefully controlled, we can eliminate stop-and-go waves caused by human driving behavior,” said Daniel B. Work, assistant professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, a lead researcher in the study.

New research could trigger revolution in computer electronics manufacturing

March 2, 2017

A pioneering new technique to produce cutting-edge, versatile microchips could revolutionize the speed, efficiency and capability of the next generation of computers.

Researchers from the University of Exeter have developed an innovative new method to engineer computer chips more easily and cheaper than conventional methods.

The discovery could revolutionise the production of optoelectronic materials – or devices that produce, detect and control light – which are vital to the next generation of renewable energy, security and defence technologies, the researchers said.

Liquid metal nano printing set to revolutionize electronics

February 17, 2017

A new technique using liquid metals to create integrated circuits that are just atoms thick could lead to the next big advance for electronics.

The process opens the way for the production of large wafers around 1.5 nanometres in depth (a sheet of paper, by comparison, is 100,000nm thick).

Other techniques have proven unreliable in terms of quality, difficult to scale up and function only at very high temperatures — 550 degrees or more.

Scientists create a 3-D bioprinter to print human skin

January 24, 2017

In research that has recently been published in the electronic version of the scientific journal Biofabrication, a team of researchers has demonstrated, for the first time, that, using the new 3D printing technology, it is possible to produce proper human skin. One of the authors, Josa Luis Jorcano, professor in UC3M’s department of Bioengineering and Aerospace Engineering and head of the Mixed Unit CIEMAT/UC3M in Biomedical Engineering, points out that this skin “can be transplanted to patients or used in business settings to test chemical products, cosmetics or pharmaceutical products in quantities and with timetables and prices that are compatible with these uses.”

Coming Soon: Turn the flat-screen TV in your living room into a wireless charging station

January 4, 2017

The flat-screen TV on your living room wall could soon be remotely charging any device within its line of sight. Well, not your actual TV, but a device that is similar in size and shape.

In a paper posted October 23, 2016 on the arXiv pre-print repository, engineers at Duke University, the University of Washington and Intellectual Ventures’ Invention Science Fund (ISF) show that the technology already exists to build such a system –it’s only a matter of taking the time to design it.
