Soon, tech to detect heart attacks when one is at wheel

Image result for Soon, tech to detect heart attacks when one is at wheel

Scientists are developing a new system that can predict if a car driver is about to have a heart attack, a feature that would help avoid road accidents due to an unexpected cardiac event.

“A large number of traffic incidents are caused by (drivers suffering) medical conditions while driving, specifically cardiovascular events, such as myocardial infarction and myocardial ischemia,” said Kayvan Najarian, from University of Michigan in the US.

To avoid such accidents, the researchers have teamed up with Japanese automotive manufacturer Toyota to develop technology that can monitor and analyse the physiology of the driver and predict if they are going to suffer adverse cardiac events. To this end, they are creating a system that can be placed in the vehicle.

“We would like to test hardware we had previously identified, and improve and validate our algorithmic solutions to see what it will take to generate a system that could look at the physiology of a person, provided by high density electrocardiogram (ECG) measurements, as well as other medical measurements,” Najarian said.

Researchers are using machine-learning models to analyse data collected from in-hospital and in-vehicle subjects. The team plans to use heart monitors, which are patches placed on a driver’s chest, to analyse physiological data in real time, and hopes to report results in 2020.

AIIMS MBBS result 2017: Top 10 from one Kota coaching school. Isn’t it odd?

The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) MBBS 2017 examination results, which came out on Thursday, has baffled many of us. Here’s why: Ten students who were coached for the examination by a single tutorial, Allen Career Institute, in Rajasthan’s Kota have grabbed the top 10 ranks in these intensely competitive exams. Last year too, eight of Allen’s students had made it to the top 10 in the AIIMS 2016 exam while three had bagged the first top three ranks in National Eligibility and Entrance Test 2016, which is meant for admission to the MBBS/BDS courses in medical/dental colleges run with the approval of Medical Council of India/Dental Council of India under the ministry of health.

Without taking away anything from the super achievers who went through an insanely punishing schedule by the institute, an important question must be raised at this juncture: Has this particular institute cracked the code/pattern of these examinations to get such a perfect score? While there is no proof, it could have happened since the medical course is finite and does not change very often even through regular breakthroughs take place in the field of every day. So it could be possible that the institute/institutes have figured out a pattern in these exams by studying the questions of the last few years. Earlier, there have also been accusations against these institutes that they ‘buy’ the best students by offering them financial incentives, the best teachers, accommodation and world class facilities for free to ensure that the chosen ones get the top ranks. For the institutes, such good results ensure mileage to attract more students. Let’s not forget, for every successful student, there will be scores of others who will not make it. In fact, it’s not just in medical and engineering that we have such coaching factories; even for the prestigious Indian Administrative Services there are coaching institutes which have had a record of notching up top slots year after year.

If anything, the education policy-makers and all those who are involved in the setting the examination papers must treat the 2017 results as a wake-up call for screening the system.

They must investigate how these institutes are managing to produce such brilliant results year after year. While no one is denying that there is a lot of hard work involved in passing these examinations, the authorities must keep a strict watch to prevent anyone from ‘gaming’ the screening system so that all students get a fair chance to get into the top institutions.

Xbox One X Doesn’t Support Virtual Reality: Report

The Xbox One X doesn’t support virtual reality, a new report suggests. While Microsoft has spent the better part of last year trying to convince everyone that its console, dubbed Project Scorpio, is the pinnacle of hardware achievement, it appears that VR is not a part of the company’s plans.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Xbox’s marketing head Mike Nichols explained the reasons behind the lack of VR support. “The opportunity on PC is larger, because the install base is larger and we think the customer experience will be better on PC,” Nichols told the Wall Street Journal.

VR has been touted as the new frontier for gaming for a few years now. Whether that promise will become a reality is still up in the air, but the lack of VR support would mean that some people would rather not buy the Xbox One X. Rival Sony’s PS4 and PS4 Pro consoles support VR through the PS VR headset.

Xbox One X Doesn't Support Virtual Reality: Report

The Xbox One X is the smallest Xbox Microsoft has ever made, and also the most powerful console in the world right now, if Microsoft is to be believed. However VR is one area where Microsoft isn’t taking the console.

VR isn’t the only failing of the Xbox One X. At E3 2017 it was revealed that hotly anticipated shared world shooter Destiny 2 will run at 4K 30fps on the Xbox One X – the same frame rate and resolution as the PS4 Pro. This is despite having better specifications than Sony’s premium console. Games journalist Geoff Keighley confirmed this in conversation with Destiny 2 developer Bungie.
