Future biosensor for continuous monitoring using molecular lookalikes

Biosensors measure the concentration of molecules in biological samples for biomedical, environmental, and industrial applications, and, ideally, they should provide real time, continuous data. However, the continuous monitoring of small molecules at low concentrations is problematic. Researchers at Eindhoven University of Technology have developed an innovative sensing approach based on molecular lookalikes. This could prove pivotal in future biosensors for monitoring health and disease.


The field of biosensors has a rich and inventive history. The “father of biosensors” is seen by many to be Leland C. Clark Jr., who designed a sensor to measure oxygen in blood in the early 1960s.

However, as happens in pioneering works, things didn’t start out as he had hoped. His initial sensor designs failed because blood components affected the sensing electrode.

Clark’s solution was to separate the electrode and the blood by a cellophane wrapper from a cigarette packet,

Twitter says monitoring service does not violate surveillance ban

Twitter said Tuesday a service that monitors tweets for police, alerting them to brewing social justice protests and more, does not break the platform’s ban on being used for surveillance.

Twitter defended letting the service, Dataminr, tap into the flow of public tweets to send alerts to police or other government agencies about plans for protests or civil disobedience, such as those involved in the Black Lives Matter movement.

“Twitter prohibits the use of our developer services for surveillance purposes. Period,” a spokesman for the San Francisco-based company said in reply to an AFP inquiry.

“We see a societal benefit in public Twitter data being used for news alerting, first responder support, and disaster relief.”

The stance provokes a debate as to what exactly constitutes surveillance.

Dataminr is a social media-monitoring service that uses artificial intelligence to comb platforms such as Twitter for user-determined keywords.

In recent months, Dataminr has

Brazil moves toward transfer of deforestation and fire monitoring to military

  • In a recent announcement, Brazilian Vice President Hamilton Mourão defended the creation of a new agency that would have full authority over Amazon deforestation and fire monitoring satellite alerts. For three decades, INPE, Brazil’s civilian space agency, has held that role, making data publicly available.
  • The VP claims INPE satellite monitoring is outdated and doesn’t see through clouds. Critics of the government note that the space institute’s Prodes and Deter systems continue to provide excellent data on Amazon fires and deforestation, usable for enforcement, while clouds matter little in the dry season when most fires occur.
  • Critics contend that multiple moves by the government to disempower INPE are likely ways of denying transparency, ending INPE’s civil authority, and placing deforestation and fire monitoring satellites under secretive military control.
  • So far, an effort to fund new military satellites has failed. Meanwhile, Norway has partnered with the companies Planet and Airbus to

Paessler innovates to improve technology monitoring of industrial infrastructures

CHICAGO, Sept. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Paessler is expanding its PRTG platform to offer better monitoring within converged industrial IT and Operational Technology (OT) environments. The technology monitoring specialist has developed a new sensor to capture data from IoT devices and signed a new partnership with INSYS icom, an expert in industrial data communications, to further improve the bridge between operational technology on the factory floor and the IT systems across the wider business.

Typically, OT, such as industrial or distributed control systems, remote terminal units, production machines, and industrial PCs, has been self-contained, with little need to connect or interact with the outside world.

But, with the increasing digitalization of the industrial world and the addition of IoT technology, there is now an increased need for a more holistic approach to monitoring IT and OT systems and devices to better manage production processes and day-to-day industrial operations.

WhyLabs raises $4 million to grow AI and data monitoring platform

WhyLabs is launching out of stealth today with $4 million to grow its platform for data scientists who need help monitoring and troubleshooting problems they encounter with datasets or AI models. The goal is to help teams managing machine learning models save time and catch problems before they make trouble for businesses or customers. Though more businesses are finding ways to apply AI to their operations, many still encounter issues when trying to deploy machine learning in the wild. A 2019 IDC report, for example, found that for one in four companies, half of all AI projects fail.

The seed round was led by Madrona Venture Group, with participation from Bezos Expeditions, Defy Partners, Ascend VC, and the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence. The funding will be used to hire engineers and for product development, COO and cofounder Maria Karaivanova told VentureBeat in a phone interview. WhyLabs was founded in
