AI Just Solved A 50-Year-Old Mystery That Could "Dramatically" Change How We Fight Cancer
AI Just Solved A 50-Year-Old Mystery That Could "Dramatically" Change How We Fight Cancer Tyler Durden Wed, 12/02/2020 - 18:40 On the day our technological AI overlords decide to finally end the human race, we will be able to tout the feather in our cap that at one point they helped us solve some of the world's toughest mysteries. Such was the case with a science problem that the medical and scientific community has been struggling with for more than 5 decades. The problem of "mapping the three-dimensional shapes of the proteins that are responsible for diseases from cancer to Covid-19" appears to now have a solution - thanks to AI. Google's Deepmind now says it has created a program called AlphaFold that can solve the mapping problems in "a matter of days", according to a new report from The Independent . If it works as claimed, the solution will have arrived "decades" before it was expected, the piece notes. Of the 200 million known proteins, only a small amount are understood. The task of figuring out how each individual protein works is time consuming and expensive.
$99 Speaker Showdown: HomePod Mini vs. Amazon Echo and Google Nest Audio
Apple recently released the HomePod mini , a new $99 version of the original HomePod that's smaller, cuter, and, most importantly, competitively priced. At $99, the HomePod mini can better compete with affordable smart speakers from companies like Google and Amazon. Subscribe to the MacRumors YouTube channel for more videos. The HomePod mini has been praised for its high-quality sound at its price point, so we thought we'd compare it to Google's Nest Audio and Amazon's Echo to see how it measures up in terms of sound quality, design, and smarts. In the video and the photos below, the HomePod mini is the white speaker, the Amazon Echo is the black speaker, and the Google Nest Audio is the gray speaker that's taller in size. First and foremost, the Nest Audio is priced at $99.99, and the Amazon Echo has an MSRP of $99.99, but it's currently on sale for $70, so all three speakers are available at about the same price points. We may not see the HomePod mini drop in price to Echo level anytime soon given that it was just released, so Amazon has an edge when it comes to pricing.
