Highlighting new research and key questions, the IEEE Brain Initiative Workshop brought together experts from interdisciplinary areas to discuss the future of advanced neurotechnologies, as well as ethical considerations when working with the brain.
During HIMSS18 hosted a special event exploring the true potential of artificial intelligence to transform modern healthcare.
Cybersecurity risks come with the territory: Here’s what you need to know.
Researchers are discovering a link between depression and gut bacteria.
New biological markers may mean more targeted treatments are just over the horizon.
A new initiative is bringing industrial-scale engineering approaches to the biomedical world.
Water on Earth—in our oceans, rivers, lakes, and wetlands—might seem plentiful, but water that is clean and safe enough to drink actually isn’t so abundant.
