The U.S. and the Changing World of Medicine

There is no doubt that as everything else is evolving with new technology, medicine is too. The issue is that in the US, our medical system is broken and the insurance companies are too rigid. Doctors and other medical personnel have managed to work even with these difficulties and still provide patient care that is excellent along with new techniques that are successful. With the advance of biomedical research, doctors will be able to better tackle health issues in ways that are cost effective.


Automation is only one area where there is new technology coming to the fore. Because of this advancement, linear actuators are being used more often as opposed to hydraulic and pneumatic systems. They range in size from very small to very large ones. Aside from the changes that technology has seen, there are quite a few other reasons that have made these actuators necessary, such as the ever growing need for power assisted seating and motorized wheelchairs.

The Blockchain Could Change the World

Regardless of your opinion of Satoshi Nakamoto’s cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, the technology behind it is revolutionary. Known as blockchain, all Bitcoin transactions are permanent, anonymous, and virtually impervious to tampering and fraud, making it superior to conventional recordkeeping systems.

Invented in 2008, Bitcoin has grown into a legitimate currency accepted in many places online and the high street. It found an early adopter in iGaming websites, some of which now accept Bitcoin exclusively for their video poker, sports betting, and roulette games. Continue reading

The Future of the Internet

The internet was established in the 1960s to allow government researchers to easily and quickly share the information they were gathering. Prior to this, it was necessary to travel to the location of the computer where the information was stored to access it.


Alternatively, large magnetic tapes could be sent via mail or courier to an off-site location where they could be used. It wasn’t until 1983 that computer networks began communicating with each other using the Transfer Control Protocol/ Internetwork Protocol (TCP/IP). This allowed all types of computers on various networks to talk easily with one another. Sort of like using a universal translator in the Star Trek universe.

3 new ways technology is helping to advance medicine

Imaging Cameras improving cancer surgery

Every year, 14 million people are diagnosed with cancer; of those, around eight million will die. Cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide; across the globe, doctors and scientists are fighting to reduce the number of cancer deaths by detecting cancer early and promoting new ways of battling it. In the past, imaging technologies such as radiography, magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography have proved vital in the fight against cancer, helping doctors to diagnose the disease quickly to increase the chance of recovery. Now, near-infrared fluorescence (NRF) has emerged as a new, powerful imaging tool in the battle against cancer. NRF imaging is used during surgery to enable surgeons to easily distinguish between healthy tissue and cancerous tissue. Surgery is a highly effective method of treating cancer patients, but its success rate depends largely on how much of the cancer is removed; if cancer cells remain in the body after surgery, the surgery’s success rate is greatly diminished. Advocates of NRF hope the technique will give surgeons greater visibility of cancer margins and thereby increase their ability to precisely remove cancerous tissue. Companies such as are researching how we can implement these types of treatments and imaging cameras across the globe to potentially improve survival rates and reduce our reliance on radiotherapy.

The Revolutionary Role Of E-Learning In Medicine

What makes a good physician? When a patient recommends their doctor to someone else, why do they do it?

Do they do it because the doctor has a wonderful bedside manner? Do they do it because the doctor is extremely well qualified? Do they do it because the doctor has been to a prestigious medical school?

While these reasons may have played a role, they are all incidental. Often enough the patient may not even know much about their doctor’s educational background at all. The primary reason why patients recommend their doctor to family and friends


is because the doctor provided an accurate diagnosis and effective treatment plan. In other words, the doctor knew what to do. A knowledgeable doctor is a good doctor. Continue reading

Future of Artificial Intelligence; Its Implementations and Limits

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the field of computer science which uses mechanical and computational processes to echo almost all aspects of human intelligence. AI can perform multiple functions: sensory interaction with the environment and the ability to make decisions about events that aren’t happened yet without any human assistance whatsoever. Targeted advertising and virtual agents that recognize the patterns of your behavior are much standard in today’s online undertakings.


Artificial Intelligence is used by business enterprises in data analysis algorithms which have the highest advantage of analyzing the Big Data, and it also involves customer engaging techniques. Apart from IBM which developed some of the earliest functions of AI, Google and Facebook are also using AI for the analytic purpose of the massive amount of data they receive. Continue reading
