If AI Can Fix Peer Review in Science, AI Can Do Anything
Then again, what if everyone — AI advocates and critics alike — are looking at the problem backwards? “Maybe we just need to change the way we do scientific publishing,” says Tom Dietterich, AI researcher at Oregon State University. “So, rather than writing our research as a story in English, we link our claims and evidence into a formalized structure, like a database, containing all the things that are known about a problem people are working on.” Wired

'Late-life' genes activated by biological clock to help protect against stress, aging
According to David Hendrix, an assistant professor in the OSU College of Science and College of Engineering, and co-senior author on the study, some LLC genes are known to play roles in sequestering improperly "folded" proteins or helping them refold. This could help prevent formation of protein aggregates that can lead to age-related neurodegeneration. EurekAlert!

Tech layoffs surged in 2016, and 2017 doesn't look much brighter
Thousands of additional jobs are expected to disappear "as companies shift focus to cloud-based computing and smartphones.” The good news is that tech hubs outside of California are heating up. Cities including Austin, Seattle and Toronto are offering recent grads, or those simply burnt out on Silicon Valley, some enticing options that may provide a higher quality of life.
