How will doctors talk to patients about contraception apps like Natural Cycles and Clue?

Two years ago, Danielle Castillo decided to end her 13-year relationship with the pill. She had been using hormonal birth control since she was 17, and it often made her nauseous and lowered her libido. Engaged to a supportive partner but not yet ready to have children, the Cleveland-based social media marketer started researching alternatives.

This rad-ass exoskeleton uses AI to walk for you

Engineers at Canada’s University of Waterloo are developing AI-powered exoskeleton legs that can walk autonomously. The system captures a user’s surroundings through a camera. Computer vision and deep learning algorithms then analyze the scene to determine the best movements for the upcoming terrain. “Our control approach wouldn’t necessarily require human thought,” said project lead Brokoslaw Laschowski in a press release. “Similar to autonomous cars that drive themselves, we’re designing autonomous exoskeletons that walk for themselves.” The devices could give people with impaired mobility a more natural control system than current exoskeletons, which are typically operated through smartphone apps or joysticks. “That can be inconvenient and… This story continues at The Next Web
