Computer-Aided Tissue Engineering

Computer Aided Tissue Engineering or CATE is a form of specialised Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacture which deals specifically with biological systems and biological components. It is highly interdisciplinary, basically focussed around three dimensional tissue creation, and the design of these tissues to then interface seamlessly with both existing organic tissues and machined components.

It is a field which lends itself extremely well to the use of virtual reality systems in the design of these components for all of the above reasons. In addition, CASE is an absolutely essential tool in the creation of artificial organs, orthopaedic implants, and biological chips. This of course in turn makes it an essential tool to create interfaces ever more precisely capable of interfacing seamlessly with an organic body, in turn making synthetic environment interfaces ever more precise and powerful.

For almost three decades, Roger Pressman's Software Engineering: A Practitioner's Approach has been the world's leading textbook in software engineering. The new seventh edition represents a major restructuring and update of previous editions, solidifying the book's position as the most comprehensive guide to this important subject.

Podcast: Juan Enriquez: Beyond the crisis, mindboggling science and the arrival of Homo evolutis
Juan Enriquez' humorous talk from TED 2009, meandering through the state of the economy, developments in stem cells, tissue cloning and robotics - and how they are all connected. Very funny, very poignant. It will not say anything you do not already know, if you have kept up with transhumanist work, but serves as a nice, low barrier introduction.

A basic problem in computer vision is to understand the structure of a physical sceene from just one or two camera?s perspective. This book attempts to provide a basic background in everything you need to know to be able to create a computer vision system, and train it to deal with the physical world.

An applied introduction to modern computer vision, focusing on a set of computational techniques for 3-D imaging. Covers a wide range of fundamental problems encountered within computer vision and provides detailed algorithmic and theoretical solutions for each. Each chapter concentrates on a specific problem and solves it by building on previous results.

PET Resolution Increases by Leaps and Bounds
ET scans suffer quite a bit when they image moving tissue, such as a beating heart. No scan is instantaneous, and as the slices move down, the beating of the heart causes distortion that is hard to remove from the result, as pieces do not line up correctly. A solution to this, that increases the resolution as a side-effect, may have been found.

Shape Memory Materials, Simulation and Prosthetics
Shape memory alloys are composite materials which can 'remember' a given shape or form, and revert back to it when a charge is passed through them, or they are warmed past a critical point, or another condition is met. They deform then reform, essentially flowing like organic tissue without actually being organic.
