Encoding data on plastic molecules could lead to breakthroughs in storage technology

The words “if one scheme of happiness fails, human nature turns to another” were originally published in 1814 in Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park. At the time, the words were printed using revolutionary steam-powered printers that could roll through over a thousand sheets of paper an hour. Since the early 2000s, it’s been possible to read all of Jane Austen’s works online, including Mansfield Park. But as of this year, the list of places her words are published has had a bizarre addition.

Instagram will now filter out strangers’ DMs that contain abusive language

Instagram is finally adding another much-needed layer of protection from harassment to your inbox: from now on, it’ll “automatically filter DM requests containing offensive words, phrases, and emojis, so you never have to see them.” The idea is that this should prevent strangers sending you hateful messages; pings from people you don’t know are already filtered into a separate inbox, so this takes things one step further.

‘Bat-sense’ algorithm could be used to monitor people and property without cameras

A “bat-sense” algorithm that generates images from sounds could be used to catch burglars and monitor patients without using CCTV, the technique’s inventors say. The machine-learning algorithm developed at Glasgow University uses reflected echoes to produce 3D pictures of the surrounding environment. The researchers say smartphones and laptops running the algorithm could detect intruders and monitor care home patients.

What we can learn from sequencing 1 million human genomes with big data

The first draft of the human genome was published 20 years ago in 2001, took nearly three years and cost between US$500 million and $1 billion. The Human Genome Project has allowed scientists to read, almost end to end, the 3 billion pairs of DNA bases – or “letters” – that biologically define a human being. That project has allowed a new generation of researchers like me, currently a postdoctoral fellow at the National Cancer Institute, to identify novel targets for cancer treatments, engineer mice with human immune systems and even build a webpage where anyone can navigate the entire…This story continues at The Next Web
