Startup Makes It Easier to Detect Fires With IoT and Flir Cameras

Fires at recycling sorting facilities, ignited by combustible materials in the waste stream, can cause millions of dollars in damage, injuring workers and first responders and contaminating the air.Detecting the blazes early is key to preventing them from getting out of control.Startup MoviTHERM aims to do that. The company sells cloud-based fire-detection...

Mayo Clinic Researchers Pump Up Wearable ECG Functions With AI

Mayo Clinic researchers have developed an artificial-intelligence algorithm that can detect weak heart-pump functioning from a single-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) on the Apple Watch. Early results indicate that the ECG is as accurate as a medically ordered treadmill stress test but could be performed anywhere, the researchers say.The single-lead AI...
