Dr. Panos Kosmas to Produce Keynote Lecture on New Healthcare Technological innovation for Stroke Detection

U.S. Patent Strengthens META’s Intellectual Residence Position in Professional medical Imaging

HALIFAX, NS / ACCESSWIRE / May perhaps 25, 2022 / Meta Supplies Inc. (the “Organization” or “META®”) (NASDAQ:MMAT),(FSE:MMAT) a developer of significant-efficiency practical materials and nanocomposites, today declared that Dr. Panos Kosmas, VP Biomedical Engineering, will give a keynote lecture on Microwave Imaging for Medical Diagnostics on Thursday, Could 26th, as aspect of the 8th International Meeting on Antennas and Electromagnetic Devices (AES 2022) held in Marrakesh, Morocco. As section of his lecture, Dr. Kosmas will supply an overview of his team’s R&D to producing a transportable, cost efficient and protected radio-wave imaging scanner, which can be utilized in ambulances for detecting strokes, or bedside in the hospital to watch stroke evolution and recovery.

According to the World Stroke Business, stroke remains the next-primary result in of dying and the third-main lead to of loss of life and disability blended in the planet. The believed world-wide cost of stroke is more than U.S. $721 billion affecting far more than 100 million individuals.

Point of treatment diagnostics and distant monitoring crucially rely on details precision and dependability. META has made a metamaterial technological know-how platform to evaluate physiological indicators with exceptional accuracy, specificity, and sensitivity. META’s engineering leverages metamaterials to bend light in non-standard approaches. When a metamaterial movie is put on the skin, the sign can penetrate the tissue, strengthening sensing accuracy. Below normal conditions, a signal is mirrored, and little vitality penetrates the tissue, hindering sensing precision.

“The application of metamaterials in health care imaging has the possible for speedy clinical adoption, offering better image resolution, more rapidly scans and with out working with ionizing radiation. Our technologies prospects to the growth of enhanced diagnostic equipment,” explained George Palikaras, President & CEO. “META has shown and printed the usefulness of metamaterial technological innovation in equally imaging and sensing apps. I am individually energized about how this engineering will make a difference in people’s lives.”

The exploration is the result of a collaboration concerning King’s School London, wherever Dr. Kosmas formerly held a whole-time tutorial situation, and META, the place he is now utilized total-time leading the hard work to commercialize this analysis. Advancement of the portable scanner rewards from META’s patented, “see-through-pores and skin” metamaterial technology, which is a key enabler for detecting stroke a lot more properly. META’s solution has been offered in a series of peer-reviewed papers and has not long ago been granted a U.S. patent (US 11,246,502 B2). The procedure is currently getting created even further in META’s new European R&D and Profits Headquarters in Athens, Greece.

“Well timed differential prognosis of stroke is critical, due to the fact the window for procedure to mitigate lasting problems is quick,” claimed Dr. Kosmas. “With our planned, moveable technique, medication to address an ischemic stroke by dissolving blood clots could be administered even though the affected person is nonetheless on the ambulance, and in the circumstance of a hemorrhagic

RootsTech 2022: New family history technology, keynote messages

RootsTech 2022 picked up right where it left off last year — by reaching more than 1 million participants in over 225 countries and territories in its first day.

Many more are expected to participate in the free online family history conference before it ends on March 5, according to a FamilySearch news release.

Participants who log in to RootsTech.org can choose from more than 1,500 learning sessions on 185 topics in over 30 languages, as well as can create custom playlists of sessions they would like to watch now or later on demand during the year. DNA, family history research, technology, travel and storytelling are among the popular topics.

The conference has featured messages from a diverse lineup of keynote speakers.

The large gathering also provides a prime opportunity for organizations such as FamilySearch, MyHeritage and other major sponsors to introduce new technology, updated tools and innovations.

Here is a quick look at some of the new technology and thoughts on connection from featured keynote speakers.

What is ‘Get Involved’?

FamilySearch has developed a new volunteer online experience called “Get Involved” that uses handwriting recognition technology. The new tool was released at RootsTech.

FamilySearch has developed a new volunteer online experience called “Get Involved” that uses handwriting recognition technology.

Here’s how it works:

  • A user pulls out his or her phone and clicks on the “Get Involved” app.
  • The user selects a country where his or her ancestors are from.
  • A record appears with a highlighted name. The user is provided with options to confirm the name, edit it or click “Unsure.” The name appears correct and the user confirms it. 
  • The app guides the user through a batch of names on records. The names confirmed are saved on FamilySearch for use in building a family tree
  • The task takes less than two minutes to complete.

In 2021, FamilySearch completed the microfilm digitization initiative, a new database with names and information for billions. FamilySearch hopes volunteers will use “Get Involved” to help digitize those records to help people find and connect with their ancestors.

The first projects available in English will be refining United States Wills and Deeds collections from almost all 50 states. The 1950 U.S. Census will be released in April. Additional projects in Italian, Portuguese and other Latin American countries are also in the works.

MyHeritage releases ‘LiveStory’

Last year, MyHeritage launched “Deep Nostalgia,” technology that brought still pictures to life with AI animation. It quickly became a global sensation. Many had fun using the technology to give movement to historic images of famous people.

This year MyHeritage released a new photo feature called “LiveStory.” LiveStory creates an animated video narrative of an ancestor as if they were telling their personal story.

“This incredible feature gives voice to your family stories and enables you to connect your ancestors in a remarkable new way,” said Maya Lerner, vice president of product at
