What Is Amelia-Phocomelia? Toddler Born Without Arms Or Legs Walks For First Time

International Business Times

A Texas family shared a video to Instagram Nov. 19 of their pre-school aged son as he learned to walk for the first time without arms or legs. The child suffers from Amelia-Phocomelia Syndrome, which prohibited his ability to walk due to an absence of limbs. Camden, 4, was diagnosed at birth with Amelia-Phocomelia Syndrome, an extremely rare condition that can cause one or more limbs to be missing. The defect affects 0.053 to 0.095 in 10,000 births, including Camden. The toddler, however, hasn't let the condition halt his willingness to engage in regular recreation, including walking.

Skype launches Photo Effects – sticker suggestions powered by machine learning

#artificialintelligence

Not content with merely launching its own take on Instagram and Snapchat's Stories, Skype today is adding another copycat-like feature to its app: photo stickers. The company says it's introducing new "Photo Effects" (as it's calling these stickers), which include things like face masks, decorative borders, witty captions, and more. However, unlike the photo stickers you'll find in other social apps today, Skype will actually suggest the stickers to use based on the photo's content, day of the week, and other options. The new feature is based on technology Microsoft introduced earlier this year in a silly camera app called Sprinkles. The Sprinkles app leverages Microsoft's machine learning and A.I. capabilities to do things like detect faces in photos, determine the subject's age and emotion, figure out your celebrity look-a-like, and suggest captions.

The Future of Online Dating Is Unsexy and Brutally Effective

@machinelearnbot

When I give the dating app LoveFlutter my Twitter handle, it rewards me with a 28-axis breakdown of my personality: I'm an analytic Type A who's unsettlingly sex-focused and neurotic (99th percentile). On the sidebar where my "Personality Snapshot" is broken down in further detail, a section called "Chat-Up Advice" advises, "Do your best to avoid being negative. Get to the point quickly and don't waste their time. They may get impatient if you're moving too slowly." Loveflutter, a Twitter-themed dating app from the UK, doesn't ask me to fill out a personality survey or lengthy About Me (it caps my self-description at a cute 140 characters).


The best devices and apps to up your selfie game

Engadget

The first time a stranger on the train told me I had a nice smile, I didn't believe her. Back then, I hadn't yet had my crooked teeth fixed, and my self-esteem wasn't anywhere as high as it is today. I was an ugly kid, and it took a shocking number of selfies to convince myself that I'm not an ugly adult. It may seem like a superficial pastime, but selfie-taking has real benefits. I'm not alone in believing there are psychological advantages here.
