AR (Augmented Reality) is the future of computing, truly. It transcends traditional computing with 2D monitors, mice, and keyboards – and takes us into spatial computing, with 3D holograms and more natural interactions. It’s a whole new way of interacting with digital content in the context of the real world.
Although there are several forms of AR such as mobile and smart glasses, the most advanced and powerful is immersive AR, which is defined as photorealistic, high-resolution, life-size holograms wrapped in a natural interaction paradigm using direct hand manipulation and voice commands. Immersive AR has immense potential to change how we communicate, collaborate, and create… enhancing our human interaction in the process.
Healthcare is one of the primary verticals in AR with the most to gain. In healthcare education, medical schools are starting to train a new generation of healthcare professionals using interactive 3D anatomical models – reducing the need for cadavers and significantly improving training and comprehension.
With immersive 3D medical imaging, AR can assist with everything from diagnosis, to patient communication, to collaborative pre-operative planning, to the surgery itself, where 3D MRI/CT scan is overlaid onto the patient. The benefits of 3D medical imaging go well beyond providing high financial value – they represent the future of caregiving.
“Don’t you believe in anything?” Isaac Asimov said, “I believe in evidence. I believe in observation, measurement, and reasoning, confirmed by independent observers”.
“Organized” religion, “des-organized” religion: sects and cults, have been created by humans throughout millennia. As humans evolved from small hunter-gatherer tribes into large agrarian cultures, our ancestors needed to encourage cooperation and tolerance among relative strangers. Religion then—along with the belief in a moralizing God—was a cultural adaptation to these challenges.
The ignorance of any religion that says that God made the earth 6,000 years ago is expressed in this image. And some sheeple really believe it! 😮😇
Einstein would probably not have classified himself as a freethinker in the sense in which it is used in this movement. He probably would not have supported all the positions taken in the Freethinker. However, he puts an absolute priority on the need for all of us to think independently of established ideas. This is how he overthrew Newtonian physics.
Are you a disorganized person? Good news: you are intelligent! Well, that is what a scientific study tells us, known us Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking (TTCT) conducted by the University of Georgia.
Please, have in mind that “being disorganized” does not mean having your house, room, or office upside down, lol.
Since I was a child I had to deal with disorganization problems. I made myself do things in an organized manner, but it was and still is a constant fight; but now I have found a magnificent and important reason to explain the way I behave, and it is simple: I am intelligent.
However, I don’t think that people who are well-organized are NOT intelligent, au contraire. I am just happy to have found 9 reasons to excuse my disorganization traits…and I have them all!
