The Promise and Peril of Gene Editing

by Beyond Standards| Fri, 10 Mar 2017

New powerful techniques for altering and synthesizing DNA can be used on all living organisms, including humans. And while these “gene editing” tools bring enticing possibilities; they also raise a host of social, policy, and ethical challenges. In a recent Bioscience Technology article, Editing Humans, Marcy Darnovsky, Executive Director, Center for Genetics and Society, discusses

The Future of Hearables: Who’s Listening?

by Beyond Standards| Wed, 08 Mar 2017

As hearables join the plethora of IoT devices, our conversations will be overheard and recorded, many times without us being aware of their presence. Whether it is stationary like an Amazon Echo or Google Home or a wearable like a Bluetooth headset, hearables listen, record, and some even have electroencephalography (EEG) technologies that analyze their

What’s next? Going Beyond Moore’s Law

by Beyond Standards| Fri, 10 Feb 2017

Conditioning consumers to expect certain advances in speed, battery life, and capabilities, Moore’s Law has led the way for the computing industry for decades. Because Moore’s law suggests exponential growth, it is unlikely to continue indefinitely. Software and hardware innovations will likely keep the dream of Moore’s Law alive for several years to come; however,
