Importancia de STEM en el mundo actual
Tengo edad suficiente para haber estado involucrado en la determinación de la secuencia de los genes en el genoma humano. Recuerdo que estaba en el laboratorio a altas horas de la noche leyendo la decencia de un gen recientemente descubierto que controla el crecimiento humano y pensado que yo podía ser la primera persona en la historia de leer esa secuencia. ¡ No estoy seguro de si eso era correcta, pero fue muy emocionante!
Computer trained to predict which AML patients will go into remission, which will relapse

Training computers to differentiate between people with the same name
INDIANAPOLIS -- How to distinguish -- or as it is technically known, disambiguate -- people with common names and determine which John Smith or Maria Garcia or Wei Zhang or Omar Ali is a specific John Smith, Maria Garcia, Wei Zhang or Omar Ali -- or even someone previously unidentified?
This conundrum occurs in a wide range of environments from the bibliographic -- which Anna Hernandez authored a specific study? -- to the law enforcement -- which Robert Jones is attempting to board an airplane flight?
