Doctors usually prescribe medication, diet, and exercise for high cholesterol levels. However, CRISPR technology allows you to replace specific genes that are responsible for high levels of cholesterol in the body, thereby reducing its level.

Neural networks for image generation

Artificial intelligence that generates images, before creating a picture, is trained on large data sets using deep learning algorithms. These algorithms study the patterns and relationships between various image elements such as shapes, colors, and textures.

The technology can be applied in various fields – from marketing and graphic design to virtual and augmented reality technologies. Automating the process of creating images can save time and effort for designers, as well as bring new creative possibilities.


RISC-V is a set of instructions for designing a computer chip with open source code. A chip, or microcircuit, is a computing device that processes information in the form of zeros and ones.

Chips from manufacturers such as Intel and Arm have a closed code. Therefore, microcircuits may not fit the device, or they have to be developed separately, but for a fee. RISC-V, on the other hand, offers a standard that anyone can use for free and use to design their own chip.

RISC-V chips have already begun to appear in headphones, hard drives and processors of robots and computers that use artificial intelligence technologies. And in February 2022, Intel opened a fund that supports companies that make RISC-V chips.

Telemedicine for abortion

Telemedicine is already being used to perform abortions due to the growing number of bans on abortion surgeries. Abortions are banned in Palestine, Iraq, El Salvador, Senegal. In June 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the abortion rights ruling.

Through telemedicine, women can remotely consult with medical professionals and receive drugs for medical abortion. In addition, remote medical care provides confidentiality. This is important for women living in areas where abortion is stigmatized or banned. Telemedicine, on the other hand, helps them terminate their pregnancies without worrying about the social and legal implications of visiting a clinic in person.

Bodies “on demand”

Organs on Demand is a bioprinting technology that builds on advances in stem cell research, tissue engineering, and 3D printing to produce functioning organs. Printing ink is made up of cells from the patient’s tissues.  Thanks to bioprinting, the need for organ donors will gradually decrease, and the number of people who did not wait for their turn and died because of this can be reduced.

Transport electrification

The demand for electric vehicles is growing every year. In addition, the proliferation of electric vehicles is fueling innovation in battery development, charging infrastructure and renewable energy.

Its task is a detailed study of the Universe. The telescope can detect the light of stars and galaxies formed after the Big Bang, study the formation and evolution of planetary systems, explore the atmospheres of exoplanets, and much more.

It is equipped with a large sunshield to protect sensitive instruments from the heat of the sun, an infrared camera, and a near, medium, and far infrared spectrograph.

During this time, he has already made a number of discoveries. For example, he discovered the most distant galaxy and the oldest stars ever found, studied in detail the atmosphere of the exoplanet WASP-39b, found a planet the size of the Earth.

Molecular anthropology

Molecular anthropology is the study of human biology and evolution through DNA analysis. Researchers study human genes based on the remains of bones, teeth and tissues. Advances in methods for analyzing ancient DNA have given researchers the opportunity to study the genomes of various populations, including extinct ones.

This allows you to explore the history of human migration, the structure of their populations and the history of evolution. In addition, molecular anthropology can be used to study relationships between different species, including our closest relatives such as chimpanzees and gorillas. In the future, molecular anthropology will help to study the genetic basis of human diseases, as well as to develop new treatments for these diseases.

The recycling process includes the collection of used batteries, their disassembly and the extraction of valuable materials – nickel, cobalt, lithium, aluminum, copper and graphite. The components are then melted down, refined and used to make new batteries or other products such as electric cars.
