§ June 22nd, 2020 § Filed under Nanotechnology Comments Off on ARTIDIS First Prospective Study, "NANO, Evaluating its Nanotechnology Platform Based on a Novel Nanomechanical Biomarker in Breast Cancer Meets…

June 22, 2020 07:42 ET | Source: Artidis AG

Basel, Switzerland, June 22, 2020 - ARTIDIS AG, a clinical stage health-tech company, announced today that its proprietary nanotechnology platform for cancer diagnosis has met the primary endpoint in the NANO clinical study. NANO was designed to demonstrate the power of using a nanomechanical biomarker to evaluate breast biopsies within a routine clinical setting. Secondary analysis indicates that the nanomechanical biomarker can be used independently of histopathology to differentiate and further categorize specific molecular subtypes of breast cancer.

Data from this study will be presented as a late-breaking abstract at the virtual Annual American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Meeting that takes place from June 22 24, 2020.

The primary endpoint of the study was to achieve a sensitivity (proportion of true positive results divided by the total number of patients with a malignant tumor) for cancer diagnosis of at least 90% (CI 95%). The analysis for the primary endpoint was performed on data obtained from 520 patients. Biopsy tissue was categorized as normal, benign or malignant based on a Nanomechanical Score as determined by the ARTIDIS nanotechnology platform. After the determination of the Nanomechanical Score, histological analysis of the same specimens was performed to serve as a gold standard for comparison with the Nanomechanical Score".

ARTIDIS was able to detect cancer, including lesions with < 5% neoplastic tissue, with a sensitivity of 96% and a specificity of 78% (CI 95%, AUC = 0.94), meeting the primary study endpoint.

We are very pleased with the excellent results from this first prospective study conducted in Switzerland. It demonstrates the clinical utility of the nanomechanical biomarker in a routine clinical setting at the patient bedside. We are convinced that this brings us one step closer to providing patients undergoing a biopsy procedure with a same day diagnosis, opening the path to personalized cancer treatment plans guided by the ARTIDISNet platform. said Marija Plodinec, PhD, CEO of ARTIDIS AG.

Secondary endpoints evaluated the ability of the nanomechanical biomarker to distinguish and further categorize molecular subtypes of breast cancer based on their aggressiveness and potentially poor treatment response.

While exploratory, secondary analysis indicates that the nanomechanical biomarker can be used independently of histopathology to differentiate and further categorize specific molecular subtypes of breast cancer (sensitivity 83%, specificity 82%, CI 95%, AUC = 0.86). The study includes a long-term follow-up of the same patients after two, five, and ten years.

Secondary analyses indicate that this novel technology will be able to subclassify the breast cancer subtypes into more or less aggressive subgroups, which could define the patients treatment plan and thus reduce over- and undertreatment. commented Dr. Rosemarie Burian, gynecologist at the Breast Center, University Hospital Basel and lead investigator of the study.

About the NANO study

To demonstrate clinical utility of the nanomechanical biomarker as measured by the ARTIDIS nanotechnology platform, a blinded prospective clinical study led by Dr. Rosemarie Burian, was conducted at the Breast Center, University Hospital Basel and at the Biozentrum, University of Basel from 2016 until 2019.

All patients undergoing a core needle or vacuum biopsy of the breast qualified for the study. Within 3 hours, fresh biopsies were analyzed in a physiological solution to maintain their viability for consecutive histological and genetic analysis within the routine clinical workflow. In total, 588 biopsies from N=545 patients were analyzed with a drop-out rate of 4.5%. 61.8% were B1-B4 (normal, benign, of uncertain malignant potential, or suspicious) and 38.2 % were B5a B5d (malignant). The majority of the B5b lesions were Luminal B, followed by Luminal A, Luminal B-like, Her2 and triple negative breast cancers.

The nanomechanical biomarker measurements of the same patients were comprehensively analyzed in relation to more than 180 structured clinical parameters per patient within the digital ARTIDISNet platform to further categorize molecular subtypes of breast cancer based on their aggressiveness and potential for poor treatment response.

I am delighted that the NANO study met its primary endpoint, said Dr. Burian. I would like to thank my radiology colleagues Dr. Sophie Dellas and her team who were essential to the success of the study, Prof. Markus Tolnays wonderful team of pathologists, in particular Prof. Ellen Obermann, Sabine Schdelin from the Clinical Trial Unit of the University Hospital, as well as the Biozentrum team led by Prof. Roderick Lim for their continuous collaboration. And, of course, I thank each of the patients who consented to participate in our study and thus supported us in their very personal way.

About ARTIDIS nanotechnology platform

ARTIDIS introduces a game-changing improvement in the field of cancer diagnostics and treatment by shortening the workflow of bedside biopsy analysis to less than three hours. The ARTIDISNet data platform integrates the mechanical biomarker data with other clinical parameters enabling personalized disease prognosis and aiding with treatment optimization, thereby significantly improving individual patient experience. Its sophisticated AI-powered algorithm allows healthcare professionals to gather insights into rich clinical data sets and supports them in tailoring the treatment of their patients securing better outcomes.

These aspects will be further examined in a multicenter study at centers in Switzerland, Germany, and the US. This will ensure that the current data is evaluated in an international setting and confirm its clinical validity across a wider cohort of patients.

We are also expanding our clinical program to include the diagnosis of lung and pancreatic cancers and to identify its potential for treatment optimization in collaboration with centers in Barcelona, Spain, and the Texas Medical Center in Houston, US, commented Dr. Marija Plodinec.

Unwrapping the many gifts of graphene – Science Business

§ June 22nd, 2020 § Filed under Nanotechnology Comments Off on Unwrapping the many gifts of graphene – Science Business

One of the many problems in the fight against malaria is the difficulty of accurate diagnosis in remote areas with limited medical infrastructure. But that could change thanks to a new miniature testing kit that uses graphene, a material made of carbon with a startling variety of uses.

The MULTIMAL research project is developing a small device that can be used to rapidly identify malaria parasites using saliva samples, without the need for lab equipment. MULTIMAL is one of eight projects exploring new uses for graphene with support from ATTRACT, a 20 million EU-funded, CERN-led consortium, which has awarded 170 grants worth 100,000 each for one-year proof-of-concept technology projects.

Todays portable malaria testing kits are just above flipping a coin, because they are right only 60 per cent of the time, says MULTIMAL principal investigator Jrme Brme. The disease, which the World Health Organisation says killed 435,000 people in 2017 (nearly all of them in Africa), is caused by five species of parasite that can be easily identified in a lab. But treating the disease in remote towns and villages is difficult because of the lack of reliable portable testing kits, explains Brme, MULTIMALs principal investigator and staff researcher at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory in Portugal, which runs MULTIMAL in collaboration with the University of Minho.

Detecting distinctive electrical signatures

Existing tests use a surface that changes colour when exposed to blood containing anti-malarial antibodies created by an infected patients immune system. But MULTIMAL aims to identify traces of the parasite itself using graphene: an extremely strong material made from atom-thin layers of carbon arranged in a latticelike a honeycombthat conducts electricity differently depending on the molecules its surface is exposed to. The researchers hope that by detecting the electrical signature of the malaria parasite on graphene, they will be able to improve the effectiveness of field tests.

Another ATTRACT-funded project, PRINTBIO, uses graphene electrodes in combination with genetically modified bacteria to identify chemicals in water. That can be useful when monitoring pollution, or for quality control in food production, for example. The project is a joint effort between nanotech firm Nanoelectra and the Madrid Institute for Advanced Studies (IMEDIA).

Engineered to generate a tiny electrical pulse when they come into contact with certain chemical compounds, the bacteria are organisedor printedin layers of hydrogel that are structured by a machine. Its not just that the bacteria are recognising the compounds, explains Abraham Esteve Nez, chief science officer at Nanoelectra, we are also domesticating the bacteria to report to us what is around. The researchers are using graphene electrodes to pick up the electric pulses, because graphene is conductive, isnt easily corroded, and can be modified to maximise contact with the bacteria.

Low-power, high-res displays

Graphene is more than just a conductor of electricity; it also reflects light in ways that make it ideal for use as pixels in display screens, notes Santiago Cartamil Bueno, managing director of Estonia-based firm SCALE Nanotech. Cartamil is the principal investigator of an ATTRACT project called GIMOD, a partnership between SCALE Nanotech and Graphenea, a Spanish company, to develop low-power, high-visibility, high-resolution, high-frame-rate and high-colour displays using graphene pixels.

Like the e-ink displays used in e-readersand unlike those used in televisions, laptops or most smartphonesGIMODs screens work by reflecting ambient light, which keeps power consumption low and means the display is still visible in harsh sunlight. Pieces of graphene move in tiny chambers, and their position within the cavity determines the colour reflected back. The graphene pixels can display far more colours than e-ink, according to Cartamil.

Because the graphene pixels are so tiny, the resolution is extremely highup to 2,500 dots per inch (DPI). By comparison, a 40-inch high definition TV supports 55 DPI, and the Sony Xperia 1 IIcurrently the worlds highest-resolution smartphonesupports 644 DPI. The pixels can also change colour very quickly, allowing smoother moving images: GIMOD is aiming for refresh rates of up to 400Hz (400 changes per second): top-of-the-range household TVs can manage barely more than half that, while Netflix runs at 60Hz.

Televisions probably dont need to achieve 400Hz or 2,500 DPI, but virtual reality (VR) headsets are a different story. Higher refresh rates are important for reducing nausea in VR, and VR also needs higher resolutions to maintain image sharpness, because the pixels are magnified and displayed right in front of the eye. Cartamil says the first potential applications for GIMOD include augmented reality (AR) headsets, which superimpose information and images on your view of the real world, for use by pilots.

Super sensitive light sensors

Graphenes unusual properties can be exploited further by rolling it into hollow tubes with microscopic diameters, called carbon nanotubes. The NanoUV project is using these tubes to improve ultraviolet (UV) light sensors, or photodetectors. Potential applications range from measuring pollution to finding dark mattera mysterious substance that may make up most of the matter in the universe, despite being impossible to observe directly. NanoUV is a partnership between Italys National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN), the Sapienza University of Rome, and Roma Tre University.

The project exploits the photoelectric effect, the discovery of which won Albert Einstein the Nobel prize: when electromagnetic radiation, such as photons of UV light, hit a surface, electrons are released. In principle, measuring the electrons means measuring the photons, which is what photodetectors do. But when the incoming light is very faint, the difficulty is finding a surface that doesnt reabsorb too many electrons before they can be measured. Thats where the carbon nanotubes come in.

As electrons are reabsorbed into the materials, typical UV light detectors are only about 20-25 per cent efficient in detecting individual photons, and 35 per cent is considered extremely good, explains Francesco Pandolfi, NanoUV principal investigator and staff research at the INFN. The NanoUV researchers hope graphene will improve detector efficiency by having the electrons pass through the empty space inside bundles of carbon nanotubes kept in a vacuum, instead of through solid material, minimising reabsorption. The electrons then hit silicon, where they form a current that can be measured. If NanoUV can double the efficiency, then you would need half the amount of light to make the same precise measurement, notes Pandolfi.

Some obvious gains would be to have these detectors being used in dark matter searchers, or surveys of the sky in which single-photon efficiency is crucial, he says. For example, when studying planets in far-off star systems, "its such a faint signal that its crucial that you make a very high-resolution measurement, explains Pandolfi. Another use could be to measure pollutants in the air, such as ozone, which absorbs UV light.

In another research project, called BANDPASS, Romanian researchers are using graphene to create photodetectors that can detect a much broader range of the electromagnetic spectrum than those on the market today, reducing the need for multiple devices made from different materials. The graphene is dissolved in a solution called graphene oxide (GO), and tiny nanoparticles of carbon are placed on top of a GO film. When the light hits this surface, the photoelectric effect kicks-in and the electrons are passed to a metal conductor.

The goal of BANDPASS is to develop a photodetector that can detect all wavelengths from UV light (short wavelength) to near-infrared (long wavelength); visible light is in between the two. Current photodetectors cannot achieve that breadth. The new grapheme-based material can have a sensitivity to all these wavelengths at once, says Lucia Monica Veca, BANDPASS principal investigator and senior researcher at the National Institute for Research and Development in Microtechnologies (IMT) in Bucharest. We dont need several materials, or different materials, to detect light at a certain wavelength. We have one material that can detect light for the whole spectrum, from ultraviolet to near-infrared.

Besides IMT, the other partners in BANDPASS are the National Institute for Research and Development in Electrical Engineering, also in Bucharest; as well as Babe-Bolyai University and the National Institute for Research and Development for Isotopic and Molecular Technologies, both in Cluj-Napoca.

Graphene could also be used to develop photodetectors to improve the performance of silicon-based electronics. In the REVEAL project, the Institute for Microelectronics and Microsystems of Italys National Research Council (CNR) is working with Italian firm Micro Photon Devices to come up with a new method for integrating graphene-based near-infrared photodetectors into silicon-based electronics.

Silicon-based photodetectors cant pick up near-infrared light because silicon is transparent at wavelengths longer than visible light. There are compounds that do work and are used in fibre-optic communications, such as indium phosphide, but theyre not fully compatible with silicon-based electronics. Graphene has shown some promise as a substitute, but current designs arent efficient enough to make it viable for industrial use. REVEAL aims to solve the problem with a new process that improves on existing methods.

Making miniature space telescopes

In fact, graphene could underpin a wide range of new sensors, including telescopes: the ROTOR project aims to use the material to help study the universe. Some telescopes pick-up wavelengths in the high-frequency terahertz (THz) spectrumwhich is between infrared light and microwavesin order to peer deep into the universe and draw conclusions about its history. But because the Earths atmosphere blocks THz waves, the large telescopes either need to be built at high altitude or launched into space, which is very costly.

By using graphene, ROTOR aims to develop much smaller and lighter THz sensors that can resist ambient radiation, allowing them to be used in space with the same sensitivity as large telescopes. The researchers at the University of Eastern Finland, the Belarussian State University and the University of Salerno also foresee potential applications on Earth, such as inspecting food and identifying chemicals, since terrestrial substances also have THz fingerprints.

Indeed, another project, called GRANT, is using graphene to create small, low-cost THz detectors, which could be used, for example, by drones to survey bridges, railways and other infrastructure, or to monitor crops. GRANTs sensors convert the electromagnetic energy into heat, which alters the shape of a thin membrane in ways that can be read by a laser, like a CD. Researchers at three institutions are contributing to GRANT: The Institute of Materials and the Institute of Nanoscience, both part of CNR, and the Elletra Sincrotrone research centre in Trieste.

A New Startup Intends to Build the World’s First Large-Scale Quantum Computer – Singularity Hub

§ June 22nd, 2020 § Filed under Quantum Computer Comments Off on A New Startup Intends to Build the World’s First Large-Scale Quantum Computer – Singularity Hub

An ambitious plan to build a quantum computer the size of a soccer field could soon become a reality. A startup founded by the researchers behind the idea has just come out of stealth with $4.5 million in funding.

While there has been some headline-grabbing progress in quantum computing in recent yearsnot least Googles announcement that it had achieved quantum supremacy todays devices are still a long way from being put to practical use.

The reason quantum computers are so promising is their potential to solve problems beyond the reach of even the most powerful supercomputers. While bits in a conventional computer can only adopt the values of 1 or 0, the qubits at the heart of a quantum computer can adopt multiple combinations of 1 or 0 at the same time thanks to the quantum mechanical phenomena of superposition.

Another quantum phenomena called entanglement makes it possible to link many of these qubits together. The combination means that while a conventional computer would have to chug through the numbers sequentially, an ideal quantum computer could sort through every possible combination of 1s or 0s instantly.

Given their complexity, though, this is only useful for problems so big that it would take a conventional computer a very long time to work through. That requires a lot of qubits, far more than anyone has managed to string together so far. The superconducting qubits that industry leaders like Google, IBM, and D-Wave use are also noisy, so its expected that wed need even more qubits to carry out error-correction as well.

The difficulty of scaling up these devices is the reason why people often talk of decades before we see practical uses for quantum computers. But in 2017 researchers from the University of Sussex in the UK put forward a bold plan for a modular quantum computer that could quickly scale up to billions of qubits. And now a startup founded by the same team, called Universal Quantum, has come out of stealth with plans to commercialize the idea.

The company is taking a different tack to the market leaders, building its qubits out of trapped ionscharged atoms confined in a particular spot using using electromagnetic fieldsrather than the superconducting circuits that have become the most popular solution in recent years.

Trapped ions are promising because they are all identical and therefore dont suffer from the tiny variations in fabrication that can impact superconducting circuits. Its also possible to push them into particular states and read those states back out with high fidelity. And most importantly, they are able to maintain their fragile quantum states for much longer than other approaches, which gives them more time to carry out calculations.

But combining large numbers of trapped ions in a single device while still maintaining control of them has proven tricky, and circuits made up of trapped ions are much slower than alternative technologies. Most designs so far also require individual lasers to control each qubit, which quickly gets impractical for devices with thousands if not millions of qubits.

Universal Quantum plans to get round this by using microwaves to control the qubits, relying on the same technology that is found in cell phones. They plan to build modular components of roughly 2,500 qubits which can then be linked together to create larger systems.

A downside to this modular approach is that the links between modules can be far slower than the quantum operations going on inside them, even using optical links that run at the speed of light. The company plans to get around this by instead shuttling the ions themselves around the system.

While they havent set any kind of timeline for when they might have a working device up and running, the founders of Universal Quantum told the BBC they are confident the technical capability exists to build the machine. The say the funds theyve raised so far will be used to find a site and key staff, but that theyll have to raise a lot more money to get the job done.

Betting against some of the largest and most powerful technology companies in the world is certainly a risky strategy. But if this plucky startup can pull off its vision, the quantum age may not be as distant as we think.

Tech company uses quantum computers to help shipping and trucking industries – FreightWaves

§ June 22nd, 2020 § Filed under Quantum Computer Comments Off on Tech company uses quantum computers to help shipping and trucking industries – FreightWaves

Ed Heinbockel, president and chief executive officer of SavantX, said hes excited about how a powerful new generation of quantum computers can bring practical solutions to industries such as trucking and cargo transport.

With quantum computing, Im very keen on this, because Im a firm believer that its a step change technology, Heinbockel said. Its going to rewrite the way that we live and the way we work.

Heinbockel referred to recent breakthroughs such as Googles quantum supremacy, a demonstration where a programmable quantum processor solved a problem that no classical computer could feasibly solve.

In October 2019, Googles quantum processor, named Sycamore, performed a computation in 200 seconds that would have taken the worlds fastest supercomputer 10,000 years to solve, according to Google.

Jackson, Wyoming-based SavantX also recently formed a partnership with D-Wave Systems Inc., a Burnaby, Canada-based company that develops and offers quantum computing systems, software and services.

With D-Waves quantum services, SavantX has begun offering its Hyper Optimization Nodal Efficiency (HONE) technology to solve optimization problems to customers such as the Pier 300 container terminal project at the Port of Los Angeles.

The project, which began last year, is a partnership between SavantX, Blume Global and Fenix Marine Services. The projects goal is to optimize logistics on the spacing and placement of shipping containers to better integrate with inbound trucks and freight trains. The Pier 300 site handles 1.2 million container lifts per year.

With Pier 300, when do you need trucks at the pier and when and how do you get them scheduled optimally?, Heinbockel said. So the appointing part of it is very important and that is a facet of HONE technology.

Heinbockel added, Were very excited about the Pier 300 project, because HONE is a generalized technology. Then its a question of what other systems can we optimize? In all modes of transportation, the winners are going to be those that can minimize the energy in the systems; energy reduction. Thats all about optimization.

Heinbockel co-founded SavantX in 2015 with David Ostby, the companys chief science officer. SavantX offers data collection and visualization tools for industries ranging from healthcare to nuclear energy to transportation.

Heinbockel also recently announced SavantX will be relocating its corporate research headquarters to Santa Fe, New Mexico. The new center, which could eventually include 100 employees, will be focused on the companys HONE technology and customizing it for individual clients.

Heinbockel said SavantX has been talking to trucking, transportation and aviation companies about how HONE can help solve issues such as driver retention and optimizing schedules.

One of the problems Ive been hearing consistently from trucking companies is that they hire somebody. The HR department tells the new employee well have you home every Thursday night, Heinbockel said. Then you get onto a Friday night or Saturday, and [the driver] is still not home.

Heinbockel said if quantum computing and HONE can be used to help trucking companies with driver retention, and that it will make a lot of companies happy.

Heinbockel said cross-border operations could use HONE to understand what the flow patterns are like for commercial trucks crossing through different ports at various times of the day.

You would optimize your trucking flow based on when those lax periods were at those various ports, or you could ask yourself, is it cheaper for me to send a truck 100 miles out of the way to another port, knowing that it can get right through that port without having to sit for two or three hours in queue, Heinbockel said.

Bits and Bytes at the Bottom – Discovery Institute

§ June 22nd, 2020 § Filed under Quantum Computer Comments Off on Bits and Bytes at the Bottom – Discovery Institute

Editors note: Ken Pedersen holds a PhD in electrical engineering and is a retired Vice President of Raytheon. Jonathan Witt is a senior fellow with Discovery Institutes Center for Science & Culture and the author or co-author of numerous articles and books. A version of this article appears inSalvo 52. It is published here with permission of the authors.

Scientific materialism is an atheistic worldview that sees all reality as the result of accidental collisions and combinations of elementary particles governed by a mysteriously fortuitous set of laws that control how matter interacts. Its a worldview devoid of higher meaning and purpose.

Today, scientific materialism has captured much of the academic world. Science itself has virtually come to be defined as the study of this mechanical, robotic, meaningless, accidental combination of particles of matter and energy. Any belief in design, purpose, ultimate meaning, inherent values, morality, or beauty is ridiculed as equivalent to belief in the Easter Bunny.

Although scientific materialists in the last century didnt usually pretend to have all the answers, most did express confidence that it was only a matter of time before any shortcomings in their paradigm would be shored up by fresh discoveries.

But a funny thing happened on the way to the 21st century.

The computer revolution and information age, combined with advances in microscopy and theoretical physics, have transformed our understanding of the power of information processing and opened our eyes to the deep structures of physical reality. The central insight: the essence of the physical world is energy and information. There is no such thing as mere solid matter. Instead, the substructure of physical reality is an unbelievably complex network of interlocking information-processing systems all working in harmony to afford progressively more capable information-processing systems.

As the renowned theoretical physicist John Wheeler put it, It from Bit. That is, the subatomic realm, along with the laws and constants of physics, which guide and shape physical interactions large and small, are shot through with information. And the information isnt just along for the ride. The material it is literally in-formed by immaterial in-formation. Or as Wheeler elaborated in a fall 1989 paper,1 It from Bit symbolizes the idea that every item of the physical world has at bottom at a very deep bottom, in most instances an immaterial source and explanation.

We now know that three quantum fields undergird physical reality the electron, the up quark and the down quark. These particles are in fact tiny clouds of pure energy. And somehow, they encode digital information for establishing what is known as a particles quantum state.

We do not understand and cannot visualize what this ghostly energy is. But we do know that it cannot be created or destroyed by any natural power. We also know that we can use mathematics to model how these tiny clouds of digital information behave as they flow through time and combine to undergird larger and larger patterns of energy and information.

Think about it. There is a form of digital computing constantly whirring along at the quantum-field level of reality. And that digital computing proceeds upward through the information-processing capacities that emerge to generate, guide, and allow for atoms, radiant energy, hydrogen clouds, galaxies, stars, stardust, planets, molecular chemistry, the DNA-RNA information-coding system, a living cell, multi-cellular life, ecosystems, and ultimately conscious human minds with a capacity for perception, memory, emotions, learning, curiosity, imagination, free will, creativity, and language.

Since these patterns overlap and interfuse one another, the boundary line between one information layer and another is not always neat and discrete, but we can still profitably delineate them. Below the quantum layer or we might say, interpenetrating and informing the quantum layer are the rule sets governing the fundamental forces of electromagnetism, gravity, and the strong and weak nuclear forces. Without those precisely tuned rule sets, there are no atoms more complicated than hydrogen and really, good luck even getting hydrogen. Also, no stars and galaxies, no planets, no life.

Above the level of quantum particles is the atomic layer of information processing, where the various atoms combine into the myriad of chemical compounds that make stars and a planet such as Earth possible. Other layers include the information-processing found in DNA and RNA, the accompanying layer found in the amino acids that code for proteins, the higher-level information-processing systems at the cellular level, and on up the hierarchy to the extraordinary information-processing that occurs in conscious creatures such as ourselves, able to unravel and marvel over these layered networks.

Anyone who understands our current scientific knowledge base has to live in awe of existence, of this multi-layered structure of physical reality, of the purposeful flow of energy and information underpinning both matter and man, of the absolute necessity of all of this for the functioning of our brains and the magnificent physical and mental gifts humans have been given.

One of us (Ken) brings to this a background in computer information processing, mathematics, and physics, along with a career as a system engineer working on advanced information-processing systems and sensors, and overseeing the development of sophisticated missile systems. That advanced technology is all about layer upon layer of information-processing. But the sophistication of those systems is dwarfed by the that of the information systems that undergird nature.

Science can observe what each of these information-processing layers does and, in many cases, accurately model its behavior. Each layer of the design is unique, stunningly complex, and precisely tuned to interface with its adjoining layers. However, a science wedded to materialism cannot explain how the layers came to be or why they exist.

Kens recent book, Modern Science Proves Intelligent Design (Archway, 2019), walks the reader through the systematic emergence of all of these progressively more complex information-processing layers. The origin of the total design is a baffling mystery to scientific materialists. However, for any scientist willing simply to follow the evidence, one purpose of it all strongly suggests itself. Physical reality is designed as a multilayered information-processing system to guide the flow of energy and information from the elemental level of quantum computing up to the miraculous information processing found amidst the neural networks of the human mind.

Some may object that this is anthropic narcissism. Surely the vast reaches of the cosmos, with its billions and billions of galaxies stretching across billions of light years, isnt solely about human beings. We dont claim otherwise. If the universe is the work of purposive design, it quite likely has many purposes. We are only arguing that the layer upon layer of information-processing systems fine-tuned to allow for that most impressive of natural information-processing systems, the human mind/brain, has for one of its purposes creatures like ourselves. As the great mathematician and theoretical physicist Freeman Dyson put it, The more I examine the universe and study the details of its architecture, the more evidence I find that the universe in some sense must have known that we were coming.2

Dyson isnt alone. Many theoretical physicists now recognize the sobering challenge of random accidents creating the multi-layered information-processing system one accidental rule at a time and then accidentally self-assembling these accidental rules into the magnificently complex and bizarre system of tiny clouds of energy that constantly process digital information at the speed of light. This layered network that forms the structure of physical reality could not have sprung from a fortuitous string of a few billion random accidents (make that a few quadzillion accidents if you include the DNA program). It is mathematically impossible.

Instead, the fact that each layer is the precise foundational layer for all of the subsequent higher layers of more complex information processing strongly suggests that each layer was foreseen, and intelligently designed for a purpose.

All of this means that the victory lap for the scientific materialists has been put on hold, indefinitely. Instead, they are scrambling to save their accidental universe.

Also, there is an irony in the way many of them are going about it. After generations of labeling their opponents as irrational and anti-science, many of these materialists now appeal to a kind of supernatural genie to save their accidental universe the claim that beyond the space and time of our universe is a myriad perhaps an infinity of other universes, with ours simply being one of the lucky ones fine-tuned to allow for advanced life. In essence, thanks to the genie known as the multiverse, everything happens somewhere, so why not humans here?

Yes, that is their solution. They dream of genie.

Baidus deep-learning platform fuels the rise of industrial AI – MIT Technology Review

§ June 22nd, 2020 § Filed under Quantum Computer Comments Off on Baidus deep-learning platform fuels the rise of industrial AI – MIT Technology Review

Behind these smart drones are well-trained deep-learning models based on Baidus PaddlePaddle, the first open-source deep-learning platform in China. Like mainstream AI frameworks such as Googles TensorFlow and Facebooks PyTorch, PaddlePaddle, which was open sourced in 2016, provides software developers of all skill levels with the tools, services, and resources they need to rapidly adopt and implement deep learning at scale.

PaddlePaddle is being used by more than 1.9 million developers and 84,000 enterprises globally. Industries throughout China are using the platform to create specialized applications for their sectors, from the automotive industrys acceleration ofautonomous vehiclesto the health-care industrysapplications for fighting covid-19.

Indeed, the coronavirus pandemic, which has spread over 150 countries and caused a worldwide economic shock, is increasing demands for AI transformation. Now is an unprecedented opportunity for the development of PaddlePaddle given the rise of industrial intelligence and the acceleration of AI-powered infrastructure, says Haifeng Wang, chief technology officer at Baidu. We will continue to embrace the open-source spirit, driving technological innovation, partnering with developers to advance deep-learning and AI technologies, and speeding up the process of industrial intelligence.

Deep-learning technologies create opportunities for revamping operations, workload management, and productivity, even in traditional industries such as manufacturing, forestry, energy, and waste management. For example, in waste management, AI is transforming refuse picking, sorting, and recycling, supporting efforts to conserve natural resources, reduce carbon emissions, and lessen waste going into landfill sites. According to a World Bank report, more than2 billion tons of municipal solid wasteare produced in the world each year. Collecting it and separating it exposes waste pickers to any number of risk factors and hazards, making this a critical area for the development of innovative AI technologies.

In Europe and the US, computer-vision technology has been extensively used for detecting different types of waste, such as glass, plastic, and cardboard, to make waste sorting more efficient. But the task is not as efficient in all countries.

Using traditional computer-vision models in China would be useless, says Zhiwen Zhang, CEO of Jinlu Technology. The garbage in China is not compatible with what can be detected by this technology. Complications tend to arise with the detection quality and with identifying diverse garbage, says Zhang.

A computer-vision veteran, Zhang was eyeing PaddlePaddle to develop applications for improving waste sorting in China. Although the industry lacks the expertise of deep learning, with PaddlePaddle, developers dont necessarily have to be deep-learning experts or build things like data-processing models from scratch.

Jinlu Technology uses a garbage-sorting robot programmed with an object-detection model to identify different types of garbage. It also uses an image-segmentation model to find garbage and do things like detect the edge of a bottle and determine its center point. The model takes just half a second to recognize an image.

For plastic bottles, Jinlu Technology trains an instance-segmentation model using Paddle Detection, a PaddlePaddle toolkit for image processing. The model predicts on Edgeboard (PaddlePaddles edge computing development platform) through Paddle Lite, PaddlePaddles deep-learning framework tailored for lightweight models, and sends signals to robotic arms that classify the garbage. While traditional algorithm-accuracy screening stays between 60% and 90%, depending on the quality of the garbage, deep-learning algorithms deliver an accuracy of 93% to 99%.

Using AI in waste management promises further potential. AI can not only spare human labor by 96%, but it can also refine sorting and further identify waste that can be difficult to categorize, such as large pieces of organic matter, small pieces of metal, and other particles. Not to mention, AI can self-learn to optimize the pipeline, says Zhang.

Currently, PaddlePaddle offers 146 algorithms and has advanced more than 200 pretraining models, some of them with open-source codes to facilitate the rapid development of industrial applications. The platform also hosts toolkits for cutting-edge research purposes, like Paddle Quantum for quantum-computing models and Paddle Graph Learning for graph-learning models.

PaddlePaddle facilitates AI development while lowering the technical burden for users, using a programmable scheme to architect the neural networks. It supports declarative and imperative programming with development flexibilityso can develop software with different types of requirementsall while preserving a high runtime performance. Algorithms can automatically design neural architectures that offer better performance than those developed by human experts.

PaddlePaddle has also made breakthroughs in ultra-large-scale deep neural networks training. Its platform, the first in the world of its kind, supports the training of deep neural networks with more than 100 billion features and trillions of parameters using data sources distributed over hundreds of nodes.One of the beneficiaries is Oppo, a smartphone producer in China, which uses PaddlePaddle to boost the training efficiency of its recommendation system by 80%.

Not only is PaddlePaddle compatible with other open-source frameworks for model training, it also accelerates the inference of deep neural networks for a variety of processors and hardware platforms. At the recent Baidu Deep Learning Developer Conference Wave Summit 2020, PaddlePaddle announced its collaboration in a hardware ecosystem that includes leading global tech companies such as Intel, NVIDIA, Arm China, Huawei, MediaTek, Cambricon, Inspur, and Sugon.

PaddlePaddle still has room for improvement, says Baidus corporate vice president Tian Wu. In the future, PaddlePaddle will keep advancing large-scale distributed computing and heterogeneous computing, providing the most powerful production platform and infrastructure for developers to accelerate the development of intelligent industries.

One of the industrial applications developed from PaddlePaddle is currently in use for medical purposes to combat covid-19. The primary diagnostic tool for pneumonia, one of the severe effects of covid-19, is a chest computed-tomography (CT) scan. With limited front-line doctors and resources to read an exponentially growing number of scans quickly and accurately, CT imaging technology is crucial to helping clinicians detect and monitor infections more effectively.

LinkingMed, a Beijing-based oncology data platform and medical data analysis company, released Chinas first open-source AI model for pneumonia CT image analysis, powered by PaddlePaddle. The AI model can quickly detect and identify pneumonic lesions while providing a quantitative assessment for diagnosis information, including the number, volume, and proportion of pneumonic lesions.

By using PaddlePaddle and its semantic segmentation toolkit PaddleSeg, LinkingMed has developed an AI-powered pneumonia screening and lesion-detection system being used in the hospital affiliated with Xiangnan University in Hunan Province. The system can pinpoint the disease in less than one minute with a detection accuracy of 92% and a recall rate of 97% on test data sets.

Robust AI will be needed to manage the increasingly complex tasks required for technological growth. Baidu is committed to developing the PaddlePaddle deep-learning platform along with AI researchers to create a better future. Were thrilled to see what weve accomplished in 2020 and look forward to new breakthroughs in the future.

Honeywell makes worlds fastest Quantum Computer with quantum volume of 64 – The Indian Express

§ June 21st, 2020 § Filed under Quantum Computer Comments Off on Honeywell makes worlds fastest Quantum Computer with quantum volume of 64 – The Indian Express

By: Tech Desk | New Delhi | Published: June 21, 2020 4:16:49 pm Honeywell Quantum computer inside the chamber. (Image: Honeywell)

Back in March, Honeywell said that it would make the worlds most powerful quantum computer within the next three months. Fast forward to June and the multinational conglomerate delivers on its promise with the launch of a system that features a quantum volume of 64 twice as powerful as the next fastest system.

Quantum computing refers to the use of quantum-mechanical phenomena (superposition and entanglement) to perform computation. The quantum volume is a measurement that takes into account the number of quantum bits (or qubits) of a machine as well as their connectivity and error rates.

Tony Uttley, the President of Honeywell Quantum Solutions, said, What makes our quantum computers so powerful is having the highest quality qubits, with the lowest error rates. This is a combination of using identical, fully connected qubits and precision control.

Quantum computers are believed to be able to solve computational problems faster than classical computers and promise to outperform even the most capable of present and future supercomputers. To envision what a quantum computer looks like, Tony says to imagine computers from 60 years ago which would take up a full room and have wires running everywhere.

Quantum computers investigate many potential outcomes at the same time. While traditional computing bits are in a state of either 0 or 1, the qubits of a quantum system can be in both states at the same time. This property of a quantum computer is called superposition.

Also read |Explained: What is quantum supremacy?

That means that when you have these qubits interacting with each other in a computation, you get, what I call, a quantum superpower, Tony said. You get an exponential expansion in the number of values that can all be considered at the same time.

The core of the Honeywell system is an ultra-high vacuum chamber. It is a stainless steel sphere, about the size of a basketball with portals to allow in laser light, and from which the air has been pumped out such that it contains a vacuum of five times fewer particles than outer space. There are ion traps inside the chamber, each of which is the size of a small coin (24.3 mm). The ion plays the role of a qubit. The chamber is cryogenically cooled with liquid helium to bring the temperature of the iron trap chip to 10 degrees above absolute zero (-262.7 C).

The ion traps are controlled by alaser, which is aimed at trapping the charge from outside the sphere through a small glass window. Within the chamber, electric fields levitate individual atoms 0.1 mm above an ion trap, a silicon chip covered in gold about the size of a quarter. Scientists shine lasers at these positively charged atoms to perform quantum operations, Honeywell said in a post.

According to the company, the main focus while building the quantum computer was to eliminate the errors present within the system on smaller numbers of qubits and then working to scale up their number. Low errors in the quantum operations expand the quantum volume, thus increasing the capability of quantum computing.

Do we need a ‘Quantum Generation’? | TheHill – The Hill

§ June 21st, 2020 § Filed under Quantum Computer Comments Off on Do we need a ‘Quantum Generation’? | TheHill – The Hill

Driving Route 66 requires no specialized training. Steering wheel, pedals, lights, mirror controls they are all familiar concepts, each one a well-established automobile technology. If youve driven one car, youve more or less driven them all. Call it drivers intuition.

However, despite the publics growing awareness of quantum technology, a corresponding intuition is rare, even among experts in the field. With quantum intuition, one could differentiate between quantum and classical worlds at the most basic level without deliberation.

For most of us, stuck with our classical minds, quantum intuition is difficult due to the counterintuitive nature of the quantum world. Concepts like entanglement and superposition can be challenging, since there is no obvious mapping of the bizarre quantum world to everyday life.

Developing our quantum minds

Most of us have technological intuition, like the ability to drive an unfamiliar car or use a new computer program. Unhindered by philosophical obstacles, it allows children to program a TV remote or master a smartphone much faster than their parents. Thats because kids today have been born and raised surrounded by technology built upon classical computers and have developed an intuition for them.

With quantum computers only now emerging, such early development is lacking. Consider, for example, light. While familiar in the macroscopic world, its quantum properties are odd. Sometimes it behaves like a wave, sometimes like a particle. Think of quantum particles that can pass, or tunnel, through energy barriers. Or imagine entangled particles, which influence each other even if separated by a large distance. There are also mind-boggling interpretations of quantum mechanics that drive ongoing and vigorous debates among specialists, such as theories of multiple universes or theories in which the future influences the past.

The legendary spookiness of quantum mechanics which so bothered Albert Einstein is born from similar examples, and the frustrations expressed by Einstein, Richard Feynman or Erwin Schrdinger are as painful today as they were a century ago.

As the quantum technological revolution changes the world, it must first move out from laboratories and into proverbial garages. To get there requires a quantum education at an early stage, an effort to tunnel through the barrier of quantum weirdness and kick-start a quantum generation of young people who can consider entanglement without being spooked, like we are, and instead set up those garages and launch completely new approaches to quantum technology.

From quantum intuition to quantum workforce

We are not yet ready for that transition. Mastering intuition requires a solid quantum education, one that crosses disciplines and fuses physics, computer science, engineering, mathematics and materials research in nearly equal parts.

Such an education must include focused training at the elementary, middle and high school levels, as well as informal education at museums and unconventional approaches like merging art into quantum education.

How do we get there? With much to do, the United States is not sitting idle. For example, several first steps emerged from a recent collaborative effort from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy that brought together cross-disciplinary specialists to develop core resources for inspiring quantum information science learners. One outcome, a necessary minimum list of nine key concepts with narratives developed by subject-matter experts, is helping shape the nations approach to early education, tackling such concepts as qubits, quantum computers and entanglement, just to name a few.

Industry is also getting involved. As students further develop their careers, the convergent efforts of industry, academia and government will be vital, as will early introductions to industrial settings. One initial effort, known as the TRIPLETS program, was initiated by NSF and co-sponsored by industrial partners such as IBM, Google, Raytheon, Montana Instruments and many others, including several Department of Energy National Laboratories. This approach allows students to collaborate with both an industrial advisor and an academic investigator, forming a triplet that introduces fundamental research and industrial culture well before graduation.

A continuing national investment

Fundamental research generates high quality educational experiences, which will lead to quantum intuition, and this cultural and technological shift requires investment.

The ambitious all-of-government approach known as Industries of the Future includes a plan to increase federal investments in five key industries to $10 billion per year by fiscal year 2025. In addition to quantum information science, the targeted industries include artificial intelligence, 5G technologies and advanced communications, biotechnology and advanced manufacturing, with quantum technologies further integrating across the other fields.

This plan builds upon the National Quantum Initiative Act, established in 2018, with both efforts calling for the development of a future quantum workforce and a strong focus on education.

However, implementation will require educators, academics, industry, and government agencies working together to create the policies and practices that enable young people today to develop the quantum intuition needed for the future.

Armed with intuition, the quantum generation will come.

The Best Ceramic Coating For Cars – Reviewed And Ranked – Top Speed

§ June 21st, 2020 § Filed under Nanotech Comments Off on The Best Ceramic Coating For Cars – Reviewed And Ranked – Top Speed

Avalon King Armor Shield IX DIY Kit

The Avalon King Armor Shield IX DIY kit is one of the best ceramic coatings for your car. The highly durable transparent coat utilizes the latest in nano-technology.

Even better, the nano-ceramic coating is superhydrophobic, which means that you dont have to clean it every day.

Whether its chips, scratches, rust, or even acid rain, your car is protected from all these elements with the Nano Bond Ceramic Coating Car Care Kit.

Apart from boasting a nanotech-based coating, the Nasiol ZR53 also comes with a 9H water-repellent coating at the surface and a multilayer technology that allows the layer to remain flexible underneath the paint job.

The Migliore Strata Coating is Italian named, but its a purely American product that caters directly to the American car owner. The product is what youd expect from a top-caliber ceramic coating for cars. It offers extensive protection against harmful elements. It comes with a highly durable coating thats been formulated to also protect your cars paintwork from damaging contaminants.

All you have to do is apply the product on the car and youre ensured that your cars surface will be protected for a period of up to one year from all the things that wish it harm. No more water spots, rain stains, UV rays, and all that debris. The Migliore Strata Coating will drive those away, all while turning the surface of your car into an extremely glossy work of art.

Ceramic coating is a clear coating thats applied to a cars body. It includes a liquid polymer that chemically bonds with the factory paint of the car. Once applied, ceramic coating can only be removed through abrasion.

Washing your car after ceramic coating is one of the most important things you need to do to keep your car protected as long as possible. You need to be vigilant in doing this to prevent the build-up of contaminants. A twice-a-month schedule is ideal in washing your car. You also need to use the two-bucket method in washing your car. This involves using one bucket for your wash soap and another bucket filled with water that youll use to rinse grime off your washcloth.

Applying ceramic coating can be as easy as it sounds or it can be tedious work. It depends on the product that you use. The basic principle of application, though, revolves around a multi-step process that includes washing your car, clearing any contaminants from it, and applying the ceramic coating afterward.

Ceramic coating can last anywhere from one to five years depending on the product that you use. The more sophisticated products typically last longer than the cheaper alternatives.

Ceramic coating car care kits vary in price, though most kits are priced in the $60 range. Cheaper and more expensive versions are also available.

When ceramic coating gets old or becomes really worn, it loses some of its ability to protect your car from the elements.

Maintaining the ceramic coating in your car involves washing your car religiously, ideally twice a month. Not only does this clean contaminant build-up, but it also ensures that the ceramic coating is taken cared of.

There are several products that are regarded as great ceramic coating kits. The Avalon King Armor Shield IX DIY kit is one. Other options include the CarPro Cquartz 50ml Kit, Color N Drive Car Ceramic Coating Kit, and the Migliore Strata Coating.

A shut down of churches and schools helped protect St. Tammany from Spanish flu in 1918 – NOLA.com

§ June 21st, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on A shut down of churches and schools helped protect St. Tammany from Spanish flu in 1918 – NOLA.com

By the time the Spanish flu began its sweep through south Louisiana in September of 1918, the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain had cemented its reputation as a convalescence mecca a place where pine-infused air and sparking clean water provided healing powers to counteract various ailments.

It was suggested that the areas pine trees released balsam, an organic substance that purified the air by destroying malignant microscopic organisms, according to reports published at the time. The area north of the lake became known as the Ozone Belt, a reflection of a time when society was unaware that the gas molecule was actually harmful to health.

And so Ozone Belt became part of a catchphrase to promote the north shores health tourism industry, one that drew well-heeled New Orleanians who sought refuge from yellow fever and other maladies that contributed to the citys high death rate. St. Tammany featured places like the physician-owned Ozonia Rest Cure Inn, the Louisiana Tuberculosis Sanitarium and Sabriers Resort in Slidell.

Nonetheless, St. Tammany Parish was not immune to the early 20th-century flu that killed about 40 million people worldwide. The exact number of parish deaths from the virus in 1918-1919 is unclear. However, historical reports suggest the parish fared relatively well in the pandemic, with lower casualty rates than those of other more densely populated areas.

While the parishs clean air and open spaces may have helped limit the pandemics toll, the reports suggest that the swift action taken by local health leaders to shut down community schools and businesses was perhaps more important than any ozone benefit provided by the pine trees and other environmental factors.

As todays health care workers in St. Tammany battle the latest pandemic, COVID-19, the Ozone Belt is a yesteryear notion and an all but forgotten holistic therapy and tourism ploy.

St. Tammanys first case of Spanish flu surfaced in September of 1918 when an 18-year-old who had been stationed at Fort Sheridan, Ill., for two months arrived home to Covington for a visit before returning to his studies at St. Stanislaus College in Bay St. Louis, Miss., according to parish library archives.

Covington health leaders quickly quarantined the teens household after the disease spread to five family members all apparently suffering mild symptoms. Residents were advised to cover their sneezes and coughs and refrain from spitting on the sidewalks.

By early October, St. Tammanys schools, theaters, churches, bars and other public places were closed. The flu made its way to eastern St. Tammany where in Slidell, five of the citys six telephone operators took ill, hampering communications, archival reports noted.

Cases increased by the day. At one point, Slidell had 300 reported cases while Covington had 22.

By mid-October, 454 new cases were recorded in St. Tammany, which at the time had a population of about 20,000. Residents in Covington, Madisonville and Abita Springs were told to wear masks often with locally made Mackie's pine oil applied as a germicide. In Covington, those who opted not to mask could face a fine of $30 the equivalent of $512 by current standards, the archives show.

An Oct. 19 headline in the St. Tammany Farmer summed up the situation: "Spanish Flu is Boss of Every Thing for Present."

By late October, the number of new cases began to decline in Slidell, where five to seven were being reported daily compared to 50 at the pandemics peak. Above its masthead, the Farmer ran an optimistic headline Flu Now On Decline.

Shipyard workers in Madisonville stopped wearing masks. By Nov. 11, the total number of cases in St. Tammany had dropped to 139. Schools in Mandeville and Slidell reopened on Nov. 18, and Covington schools opened their doors on Nov. 25. In late November, the parish was down to only 27 cases, the archives reflect.

With the signing of the armistice to end World War I on Nov. 11 and the virus seemingly subsiding, the community was in the mood to celebrate. Across the parish, impromptu parades formed, and people took to the streets in large numbers. The Farmer reported: " there was pandemonium for a time, but it was a pandemonium of joy."

However, in mid-January it became clear that the virus was still lurking in the community. A resurgence created another wave of concern, and parents were nervous about sending their children to school. In a letter to the Farmer, one parent wrote: "Let the teachers and children all die, so they die educated."

With pressure building, Covingtons Board of Health on Jan. 25 made the difficult and controversial decision to close public schools and all "places of amusement," according to archived reports.

By mid-February, the virus was running out of steam. And the archives suggest that the communitys social calendar was revved up after a long period of inactivity. The Southern Hotel in Covington hosted a Valentines dance and Mardi Gras festivities were staged in March. Normalcy had returned to the Ozone Belt.

The Spanish flus impact on St. Tammany played out against the backdrop of the parishs health tourism movement. Mid-19th century hoteliers, real estate developers and railroad agents had been promoting the north shore as a retreat from other disease infested areas in the south.

Richard Campanella, a geographer with the Tulane School of Architecture and the author of numerous articles on the Spanish flu, noted that from the mid-1800s to the early 1900s, a vibrant economy based on health tourism operated throughout St. Tammany Parish.

New Orleanians seeking to escape summertime heat and pestilence in the dense metropolis took to the piney woods across the lake, where medical professionals perceived that salubrious ozone emanated from the balsam in pine trees, and where pure artesian water could be enjoyed at places like Abita Springs, Campanella wrote in an email seeking comment for this story.

Hotels, inns, cottages and sanitariums opened in places like Mandeville, Covington and Slidell, which grew from the income and from the decision of some guests to settle permanently in these small towns.

In a 2015 article published in The Times-Picayune, Campanella references a booklet produced around 1910 by the Southern Manufacturer Co. called "Along The Line of the New Orleans Great Northern Railroad in Louisiana." The publication extolled the health-giving ozone of the north shore.

It read in part: According to the United States health statistics at Washington, Covington is the second healthiest spot in the United States. Added to the natural beauties of the place is the unusual one of peculiarly healthful water, that has for 50 years made it a noted health resort. The natural springs are highly medicinal, and especially helpful in the healing of all kidney troubles, liver diseases, dyspepsia, chronic diarrhea, catarrh, constipation, nervousness, general debility and almost any unnatural condition.

St. Tammanys health tourism sales pitch extended beyond the South. Campanellas piece also references a passage in the 1903 Chicago Clinic and Pure Water Journal: A remarkable fact about (Covington) is that when New Orleans quarantines against yellow fever, this locality is never quarantined and the village council invites the refugees from all over the South to come to its healthful climate in the Ozone Belt

Campanella points out that in time, advances in medicine and improvements to municipal services in New Orleans undermined St. Tammanys health tourism industry.

Summertime in the city was no longer dangerous, Campanella wrote. Highways and later airplanes allowed New Orleanians to vacation farther away and for different reasons. The resorts closed, and the summer cottages became full-time homes.

Just as 1918 brought the Spanish flu, St, Tammany in 2020 did not escape the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

As of mid-June, the parish reported 1,948 positive cases of the novel coronavirus and 168 deaths.And the so-called Ozone Belt influence has not been mentioned among the many purported coronavirus remedies circulating on social media.

Dr. Patrick Torcson, chief medical officer for St. Tammany Health System, said north shore hospitals began to see COVID-19 patients about 10 days after the virus arrived in New Orleans, which gave the St. Tammany medical community some time to prepare.

We never got completely overwhelmed, Torcson said. We were ready, and we were fortunate. The stay-at-home orders certainly helped.

Modern-day health experts say the century-old claims that St. Tammanys environmental factors created an antidote for countless illnesses were overstated. Historical records indicate that decisive action by St. Tammanys medical community in 1918 and 1919 likely played a larger role in keeping the Spanish flu at bay than any Ozone Belt influence.

The parish has changed dramatically over the past 100 years. Its population now stands at about 260,000, and countless pine trees have been replaced by neighborhoods and commercial developments. St. Tammanys water and air may be cleaner and more healthful than other areas, but the north shore environments highly touted medicinal magic is no longer at the forefront of public consciousness, even during the COVID-19 pandemic.

And there are few vestiges of the Ozone Belt, which was based on a theory that now holds little credence.

It certainly has not been scientifically proven, Torcson said of the ozone theory. It appears to have been a very attractive myth.
