If human and computer intelligence come together, they may be helpful in solving the world’s ‘wicked’ problems. Agreeing with it, the Human Computation Institute (HCI) and Cornell University scientists said that human active interaction with machines creates a new paradigm to give solutions to complex global problems, including climate change and international conflicts.
Researchers have provided fascinating insights on parthenogenesis or virgin birth in snakes recently. Facultative parthenogenesis or asexual reproduction in any other sexually reproducing species seems to be very common in snakes and could signify a potentially vital feature of vertebrate evolution.
A genetic muscle disorder in a living adult mammal has, for the first time ever, been treated by scientists by using a CRISPR gene-editing tool. The development by the scientists is being praised worldwide and is being seen as a promising medical breakthrough that could soon lead to the formation of human therapies.
Some of never seen before tropical diseases in the United States have been marching northward as mosquitoes and ticks have been expanding their ranges due to climate change. However, scientists said that this doesn’t mean that epidemics will break out.
Whether some cases will result into a full-fledged outbreak relies on a number of factors far more complex as compared to weather.
