Study links abnormally high blood sugar with higher risk of death in COVID-19 patients not previously diagnosed with diabetes — ScienceDaily

New research from Wuhan, China shows that, in patients with COVID-19 but without a previous diagnosis of diabetes, abnormally high blood sugar is associated with more than double the risk of death and also an increased risk of severe complications. The study is by Dr Yang Jin, Union Hospital and Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, Hubei, China, and colleagues. The study is published in Diabetologia (the journal of the European Association for the Study of…

Global COVID-19 registry finds strokes associated with COVID-19 are more severe, have worse outcomes and higher mortality — ScienceDaily

Acute ischemic strokes (AIS) associated with COVID-19 are more severe, lead to worse functional outcomes and are associated with higher mortality , according to new research published yesterday in Stroke, a journal of the American Stroke Association, a division of the American Heart Association. In “Characteristics and Outcomes in Patients with COVID-19 and Acute Ischemic Stroke: The Global COVID-19 Stroke Registry,” researchers analyzed data on patients with COVID-19 and AIS treated at 28 health care centers in 16 countries this…

How to turn 36 seconds into $5.4 billion

PhD, engineer and carpenter Hasse Neve wants a more efficient construction process. waste time is reduced so that the work can be done better for the benefit of all parties. Credit: Ida Marie Jensen.  A team of researchers from Aarhus University have, for the first time ever, linked 40 years of productivity data from the construction industry with the actual work done. The results show that productivity in the construction industry has been declining since the 1970s. The results also…

An Ecosystem for Vision, AI, and Countless Other Applications

>> Electronic Design Resources.. >> Library: Article Series .. .. >> Topic: System Design .. .. >> Topic: Communication.. .. .. >> Series: Have SmartNIC – Will Compute Generic network interface cards (NICs) are built around a single application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) engineered to be an Ethernet controller. Good examples of these are the ConnectX line by Mellanox, the Broadcom NetXtreme, or the Xilinx XtremeScale. Often, these chips are further optimized around a second design objective; for example, the ConnectX…

Using PID controllers to diversify content types on home feed | by Pinterest Engineering | Pinterest Engineering Blog | Jul, 2020

Yaron Greif | Software Engineer, Homefeed Ranking Every day millions of Pinners visit the home feed to find inspiration on Pinterest. As a member of the home feed ranking team, it’s my job to not only figure out what relevant pins to show Pinners but also to make sure that those Pins will help maintain the health of the overall Pinterest ecosystem. For instance, relative to ranking just for relevance, we might display more newly-created Pins to ensure our corpus…

A complex gene program initiates brain changes in response to cocaine — ScienceDaily

The lab of Jeremy Day, Ph.D., at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, has used single-nucleus RNA sequencing approaches to compare transcriptional responses to acute cocaine in 16 unique cell populations from a portion of the brain called the nucleus accumbens, or NAc. This molecular atlas is “a previously unachieved level of cellular resolution for cocaine-mediated gene regulation in this region,” said Day, an associate professor in the UAB Department of Neurobiology. The atlas was just the beginning of a…

How Incident and Maintenance Documentation Saves More than Lives Using IEC61508

As a signal travels across a network, it focuses only on what it sees in its path. And increases in data rates over the past few decades have made this path a bit more clouded. System infrastructure needs to accommodate such increases through better bandwidth management, better system interoperability, and higher data throughput. This is no short order. Many of these challenges are being handled in the backplane, which manages much of the interconnect between various circuit boards or cards…

Industrial Transformation: An Industrial Control Company Shifts During the Pandemic

As COVID-19 propelled digital technology to the forefront, there couldn’t have been a more fitting venue to address medtech trends than through a virtual Q&A session hosted by Collision from Home (June 23-25). But as one of 634 speakers featured on five channels of event programming streamed to 32,000 registrants, Carney would have to depend on his expertise in the use of artificial intelligence in healthcare design and delivery to vie for attention. Sean Carney, chief design officer, Philips.Collision from…
