3D printing technology is probably one of the greatest inventions of our lifetime. Given its potential “to revolutionize the way we make almost everything,”1 it is developing rapidly. That evolution has repositioned this once prohibitively expensive resource as affordable, making it accessible to many, manufacturers and consumers alike. The immediate challenge that people new to 3D printing face is distinguishing between its different processes and materials. In fact, the term 3D printing is actually an umbrella term that encompasses a variety of 3D printing processes. This paper will focus on 3D metal printing.
In 2003, the National Institute of Health’s (NIH) “Human Genome Project” (HGP) announced that it had completed its research involving the mapping of the entirety of the human genome. It revealed that there are over 20,000 individual genes in the human body, providing scientists and others with detailed information about the structure, organization and function of the human genome, along with a basic set of genetic patterns for the development and function of a human being.
This paper is part 2 of 2 on the topic of blockchain. Part 1 provides technical insight on the blockchain technology that is the foundation of the Bitcoin and Ethereum cryptocurrencies, one of the most recognizable applications of blockchain technology. Part 2 is less technical as it reviews different types of blockchain platforms, business applications using this technology and how it may soon revolutionize certain enterprise and consumer transactional processes.
This paper is part 1 of 2 we have authored on the topic of blockchain. Part 1 delves into more detail on the technology of a blockchain and how it operates.
Ransomware has featured prominently in the news over the last few years. Hospitals, municipalities, businesses, law enforcement agencies, individuals and even entire regions of the world have been affected by it. Some have paid the ransom and recovered their computer data; others have lost their data forever.
