The Unhackable Email Service | Freethink Coded
 
05:50
Ladar Levison built an encrypted email service called Lavabit that counted a prominent figure among its users: Edward Snowden. After spending 10 years building Lavabit, he has to destroy it all in one night. When the FBI demanded Levison decrypt Snowden’s communications, he had two options, either hand over the encryption key or destroy his servers. He chose the latter. Now, he’s back and building an even more secure version of Lavabit that could make mass email surveillance obsolete.

Inside the Cajun Navy: How Volunteers are Training to Rescue Hurricane Victims | Freethink
 
04:39
After Hurricane Katrina, volunteers with boats rescued thousands of flood victims. Those volunteers have evolved into the “Cajun Navy,” a cluster of groups which have helped rescue many more people stranded in the wake of Hurricane Harvey and other floods and major storms. We followed one of these groups, Cajun Navy Relief, as they prepared for their first-ever Search and Rescue games this spring. The games were just the latest effort by the group to add new skills and capabilities to the all-volunteer group. Can civilian-led rescue be part of future disaster recovery efforts?

The Future of Cancer Research | Freethink
 
05:54
Intel employee Bryce Olson was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer. When the standard of care didn’t work, Bryce turned to genomic sequencing which allowed his doctors to identify specific genetic drivers of his disease and identify specific treatments and clinical trials that were a fit for his specific cancer. This precision medicine approach helped send his cancer into remission for several years. Now that his cancer has returned, Bryce is working with the Broad Institute and other leaders in the field of advanced cancer research to use artificial intelligence powered by Intel technology to discover new, innovative solutions that can help him and millions of others like him around the world.

Steven Pinker Makes the Case for Optimism | Freethink

Author and Harvard professor Steven Pinker lays out what he see as a basic paradox. The news today seems worse than ever - but based on a number of key metrics, Pinker argues the world is better than it’s ever been. Pinker explores the data and makes the case for how can we tackle the world’s problems while not drowning in negativity. That’s the focus of his latest book, Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism and Progress. What do you think of Steven Pinker’s argument?

This Neuroscientist Uses fMRI to Communicate With People in a Vegetative State | Freethink

Whether some patients in vegetative states were actually "there" has always been a mystery. Most people thought it would never be possible to know. Neuroscientist Adrian Owen, author of "Into The Gray Zone" and a professor at Western University in Canada decided to try to communicate with them with the help of fMRI technology to monitor brain activity. He found, amazingly, that around 20% of people in vegetative states are actually aware of their surroundings - and thanks to his technique, able to communicate for the first time.

Can an Algorithm Catch a Serial Killer? | Freethink

A self-professed data nerd, Thomas Hargrove believes everything around us is following a mathematical formula...including murder. Hargrove wanted to find a way to use data to solve cold cases and identify potential serial killers that have gone unnoticed. Armed with public homicide records, he created an algorithm that can spot similar patterns across different cases. Each cluster is given an unique identifier -- what he calls a “Dewey Decimal System of death.” Through the Murder Accountability Project, Hargrove releases the data to the public and partners with local law enforcement to consult on ongoing investigations.

Growing Crops in the Desert with Seawater | Freethink

Water is in short supply in much of the world - but what if we use seawater? It’s been a dream for many years, but now technology is making it possible. This new seawater greenhouse uses a clever cardboard design to distill fresh water from salt water cheaply and efficiently. It’s helping grow crops in Somaliland, and could help stop the water crisis in Africa and other parts of the world that are susceptible to drought. The founder of Seawater Greenhouse, Charlie Paton, explains how unlike traditional greenhouses - which are hothouses - this one is a “cool house” that is ideal for growing temperate crops in deserts or other hot, arid regions.

America is in the middle of an organ crisis. 20 people die every day in the U.S. waiting for a transplant and over 100,000 people are on waiting lists.

One of companies pioneering this approach is Recombinetics which raises genetically-modified pigs to grow human cells, tissues, and organs. Human stem cells are inserted into the animals to create “chimeras”. Could this strange idea be the key to helping people everywhere getting the life-saving organs they need?

The Alzheimer's Detecting Helmet | Freethink DIY Science
 
05:24
One of the biggest factors in successfully treating Alzheimer’s is early detection. But how do you do that before there are any symptoms? That’s what two college students are determined to figure out. Chris Look and and Dhruv Patel were engineering students at the University of Maryland and also had family members who had struggled with Alzheimer’s. Using DIY science and tools like 3D-printing and OpenBCI’s EEG headset, they created a headset that uses AI and machine learning to help diagnose Alzheimer’s faster and earlier than conventional tools.Now, these college students are creating a startup - Synapto - to bring their device to the market. If successful, it could help treat patients for Alzheimer’s earlier and at lower cost - helping mitigate the worst effects of dementia for more people.
