A Breath Is Enough To Detect Lung Cancer

Lung cancers are difficult to detect at an early stage. Usually they are diagnosed on the basis of symptoms such as incurable chronic cough, breath shortness, general fatigue, etc. By the time lung cancers can get detected using X - rays, tumors usually have crossed their smallest and most curable state. In a recent research presented at theEuropean Respiratory Society International Congress in Munich, it has been reported that just by measuring the temperature of the exhaled breath, presence of lung cancers can be detected.

Speed Learning Through Thinking Caps

Brain is an enigma; an excellent servant but a terrible master. It controls us but the moment we try to control it, we find ourselves in uncharted waters. Recent Developments With the progress in science, however, we can now find out what our brains are doing, which of its parts are more active and even, to some extent, what it is thinking, just by looking at the EEG (Electro-encephalogram), fMRI (functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging), etc.

Digital Interactive Ad that Blows the Mind - Err Hair!

Big Data Processing Using Hadoop

As a CS freshman I was required to present on an emerging technology of my choice. I chose Big Data Processing Using Hadoop, with the focus being on general understanding of the core rather than technical depth. So here is a four part general write up: Part 1 covers the very fundamentals of Big Data and Google’s milestone contribution towards its processing. Part 2 discusses the development of Hadoop- an open source approach for the processing of Big Data.
