Siekiera to All
Are you interested in science?
Have you come across any great problems/research/lectures or maybe thoughts?

here's an interesting tweet

Today I learned: Leela Chess Zero's creators are not even professional chess players. Imagine the same with #medicine - the most advanced medical #AI algorithms created by developers without profound medical knowledge?

This is just incredible, evolution of chess engines and generally AI blows my mind.
Google's deep mind had great success with AlphaZero, then video games like DOTA/LOL
Now they're working on protein folding
AI protein-folding algorithms solve structures faster than ever
Machine learning predicts the look of stem cells

Some excellent TED talks I can share with you

The artificial muscles that will power robots of the future | Christoph Keplinger

Everything around you can become a computer | Ivan Poupyrev

These bacteria eat plastic | Morgan Vague

nobody knows nothing for sure from ever and ever, even mendeleev's periodic table is a deduction

I studied genetic engineering so of course I'm interested in science :) But clearly other fields than you ... though biochemistry and genetics rely heavily on informatics too :)

short question, what do you know for sure?

Field doesnt matter, this was meant to be a general topic:) Im just asking whether you know about any interesting research :) just share anything you want

few days ago I listened to the podcast aboust crispr cas great stuff.

dont know much about biology but remember fascinating lecture about MMP9.
Theyd edited/cut this gene in mouses and found out it impaired their learning abilities but only about positive things, they didn't have problems learning how to avoid things

Later they studied this gene within some parts of the brain
they found link connecting polimorphism of that gene had links with alcoholism, depression, epilepsy etc.

very complicated but fascinating.
he has some lectures in english but they're aren't as great. here's short clip from TED

Crispr technique is getting so advanced, I'm quite sure many big breakthroughs could come in the next years with regard to gene therapy etc

Did you read Hacking Darwin: Genetic Engineering and the Future of Humanity? That book is really amazing :)
