Important step towards a computer model that predicts the outcome of eye diseases
(Institute of Molecular and Clinical Ophthalmology Basel) Understanding how the retina transforms images into signals that the brain can interpret would not only result in insights into brain computations, but could also be useful for medicine. As machine learning and artificial intelligence develop, eye diseases will soon be described in terms of the perturbations of computations performed by the retina. A newly developed model of the retina can predict with high precision the outcome of a defined perturbation. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Bridging the Healthcare Interoperability Gap
Interoperability has been a major challenge in healthcare since the early days of electronic medical records. A 2015 survey of nurses found that the lack of interoperability between medical devices and electronic health records is not only burdensome for them but can lead to dangerous medical errors. Some healthcare organizations have attempted to integrate their systems to streamline data, but doing so has been a slow, expensive process that is also difficult to maintain. Now, a startup company founded just last year, has developed an integration platform as a service intended to ease some of that pain for healthcare...

Koko the Gorilla Wasn ’t Human, But She Taught Us So Much About Ourselves
Koko the gorilla earned her pronouns a long, long time ago. It is one of humanity’s great vanities that we withhold pronouns from most animals — or at least we withhold the good ones. Homo sapiens get the dignity of a “he” or a “she.” We fob off other species with an “it.” We speak of the woman who walked down the street, and the dog that accompanied her. It was never that way with Koko, the celebrated western lowland gorilla who died peacefully in her sleep on June 19, at age 46 — a bit longer than the 30 to 40 years her species typically lives in the wild.
