Students at California's San Leandro High School planned to be among the thousands of students who walked out of class on Wednesday to honor the 17 people killed at Florida's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and to rally for stricter gun laws. Instead, they found themselves facing the surreal possibility of a shooter on their own campus. A threat scrawled on the wall of a bathroom stall triggered a nearly three-hour lockdown. We spent a week in class talking about it. Trying to come up with solutions and feeling bad about other schools who have to go through it," says Jordan Cobbs, a junior at the school.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) can detect low-glucose levels via ECG without fingerprick test

#artificialintelligence

Current methods to measure glucose requires needles and repeated fingerpricks over the day. Fingerpricks can often be painful, deterring patient compliance. A new technology for detecting low glucose levels via ECG using a non-invasive wearable sensor, which with the latest Artificial Intelligence can detect hypoglycaemic events from raw ECG signals has been made by researchers from the University of Warwick. Currently Continuous Glucose Monitors (CGM) are available by the NHS for hypoglycaemia detection (sugar levels into blood or derma). They measure glucose in interstitial fluid using an invasive sensor with a little needle, which sends alarms and data to a display device.
