Cisco: IoT to generate $8 trillion worldwide in 10 years – Computer Business Review.

 

Add this to the Trillions made on personal analytics over the same time and the Quaudrillions made over expanded capitalism and also the ginormous amounts of wealth created via cannabis legalisation globally – The ‘poor’ might just be able to finally pay their way and fulfill their dreams without having to ask for money from someone else first… fingers crossed

Sistum Change – Crowdfund the machinery for Balancing Gender


Sistum – a Human Rights cored system that brings gender to the fore in order that balance can achieved

As children we learn what we learn.

As adults we act using what we have learnt.

Often we find out our ways are not right for today’s world… many times regarding gender.

Whatever is not right holds us back, or drives us forwards in directions that are not what we would choose without the ‘whatever’. We need an answer that works in order that we can move on in our own direction.

Can we use Artificial Intelligence to help us with this?

Dr. Lord served on the Neurodevelopmental Disorders Work Group that developed the new definition of autism spectrum disorder for the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), which was published in 2013 by the American Psychiatric Association.

WHAT IS A DIAGNOSIS?

A diagnosis is a categorical term that describes a group of behaviors or characteristics that, in most cases, are linked with a particular disease or disorder through cause, trajectory and effective treatments.

HOW IS A DIAGNOSIS OF AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER (ASD) DIFFERENT FROM OTHER DIAGNOSES?

Because we do not know the causes, ASD diagnoses are based purely on observations or reports of behaviors. Unlike many medical syndromes, ASD is not a disease. It is not contagious and is not yet treatable through medication (though medicine can help some symptoms). It is a developmental disorder that reflects differences in the way that children develop from very early on (from infancy and toddlerhood) and that usually continue to affect development into adulthood. The primary treatments are educational (e.g., teaching individuals with ASD ways to…

I joined Scope’s online forum soon after Lucia was diagnosed, and it has been brilliant. Sometimes, when Lucia is ill or tired, we do feel sorry for ourselves, and having other parents to talk to and keep us positive is a huge help. You can also pick people’s brains for practical advice on things like special needs statements, disabled badges and mobility aids. We were very unsure about getting a wheelchair for Lucia, but people on the forum said to go for it – and it has been amazing. It has really improved our quality of life.

SpeechTechMag.com: MotionSavvy’s UNI Converts Sign Language to Audio


SpeechTechMag.com: MotionSavvy’s UNI Converts Sign Language to Audio.

For most hearing impaired people, the inability to properly and precisely communicate with the hearing often leads to frustration, anger, and isolation. Unless a hearing person knows sign language, which is unlikely, the deaf are forced to communicate by pen and paper using a sort of pigeon English.

However, with the advancement of speech and other technologies, several solutions aiming to lower the communication barrier are hitting the market. Considering that there are roughly 250 million deaf people in the world, according to the World Health Organization, this is indeed welcome news.

MotionSavvy, a startup from Alameda, Calif., has just taken the wraps off UNI, an assistive device that features a tablet, smart case, and mobile app. Using gesture and speech recognition, sign language is converted to audio, and spoken word is translated to text in real time without needing a Web connection.

“Every aspect of interaction with a hearing person is difficult, to the point that we feel hopeless,” said Ryan Hait-Campbell, CEO and co-founder of MotionSavvy, in an email. “We feel so hopeless that there is nothing that can be done. We are trying to give deaf people the ability to live the life that they want without any limits.”
