In our continuing weekly trends and signals article we see the how researchers are\u00a0Eliminating HIV and how Kevin Warwick see a future with robots with human-size brains. We also see Chengdu thinking of creating its own ‘artificial moon’ and stem cell transplantation helping MS sufferers lessen disability.Read on…Spanish doctors \u2018eliminate\u2019 HIV from patient in stem cell transplant trialScientists from the Institute for AIDS Research IrsiCaixa in Barcelona and the Gregorio Maranon Hospital in Madrid have managed to remove the virus from the blood and tissues of six patients using the treatment.But the research, published on Monday in the Journal of Internal Medicine, said one patient now has no antibodies fighting the infection, suggesting it has been completely eliminated.Read more at The Olive PressKevin Warwick: In 10-15 years we will have robots with human-size brainsRobotics, Artificial Intelligence, biomedical, biohacking, cyborgs and self experimentation are the fields that made Kevin Warwick the world\u2019s leading expert in cybernetics. A field that is not in the beginning anymore, but it still has a long way to go.\u201cI remember a dinner with Jeff Bezos a couple decades ago. He was talking about this new business of online selling and I was like \u2018OK, interesting\u2019. Today he is one of the richest guyS in the world, but back then I didn\u2019t see the potential of his idea. If I had invested some money in his business, I would have a lot more money today. It is same with many ideas and technologies that are developing and even if we don\u2019t see the potential, you never know what they\u2019re going to become in the future,\u201d says Warwick.Working and developing robots, professor Warwick thinks the world will be led by robots in the future, by machines that will be able to take the important decisions. \u201cHumans have limited capabilities. We sense the world in a restricted way, vision being the best of the senses. Humans understand the world in only 3 dimensions and communicate in a very slow, serial fashion called speech,\u201d says Warwick, showing that robots with AI will be able to take into account all the things the human mind is not up to.Read more at Business ReviewChinese city ‘plans to launch artificial moon to replace streetlights’In Chengdu, there is reportedly an ambitious plan afoot for replacing the city\u2019s streetlights: boosting the glow of the real moon with that of a more powerful fake one.The south-western Chinese city plans to launch an illumination satellite in 2020. According to an account in\u00a0the People\u2019s Daily, the artificial moon is \u201cdesigned to complement the moon at night\u201d, though it would be eight times as bright.The \u201cdusk-like glow\u201d of the satellite would be able to light an area with a diameter of 10-80km, while the precise illumination range could be controlled within tens of metres \u2013 enabling it to replace streetlights.Read more at The GuardianStem Cell Transplant Effectively Lessens Disability in Patients with Aggressive MS, Study FindsTreatment with\u00a0autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplant\u00a0(aHSCT) led to a safe and rapid lessening of disability and no clinical relapses in patients with aggressive\u00a0multiple sclerosis\u00a0(MS), according to a new study.The research, \u201cThe use of autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation as a first line disease modifying therapy in patients with \u2018aggressive\u2019 multiple sclerosis,\u201d was presented at the recent\u00a034thcongress of the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS), which concluded in Berlin, Germany last week.Read more at\u00a0Multiple Sclerosis News TodayRelated Articles from Nikolas Badminton:Future Fridays – The Future of Medicine & HealthThe Dalai Lama on Compassion and TechnologyNikolas is a world-leading Futurist Speaker that drives leaders to take action in creating a better world for humanity.
