1.State governments in Australia have taken steps to incentivise digital deployment, achieving reasonable success in improving the accuracy and collection of information, reducing investigation times and minimising duplicated tests and documents.
Queensland Government’s eHealth Investment has met with some notable success, as demonstrated by Brisbane’s Princess Alexandra Hospital, which is well on its digitisation journey and is scheduled to become fully digital early in 2017, making it the first digital public hospital in Australia.
All states and territories have had some degree of success, and these efforts are to be congratulated; however, the most important benefits of a digitised healthcare system will only be fully realised when a majority of institutions support the technology. That’s what will really facilitate integrated, cross-institutional medical treatment.
2.German scientists developed the V2 rocket during the latter part of World War II. This powerful rocket was capable of sending an armed missile across a great distance without the use of aircraft. Following World War II, both the US and USSR brought some of these rocket scientists out of Germany and sent them to work in science labs with scientists from those nations. Their objective was to build rockets capable of carrying a vehicle into space. The launch of Sputnik by the USSR on October 4, 1957, was a complete surprise to the USA since all launches done by the Soviet Union were done in secret. It was labeled the Second Moon since it orbited the Earth about once every 90 minutes. It appeared as a faint star crossing the night sky west to east. This was a huge blow to Americans because a communist country had beaten them into space. The second surprise came a month later when Sputnik II was launched, this time with the dog Laika aboard. This put the space race into high gear as the US and USSR began to build bigger and better launch vehicles. The winner was the first nation to place a person on the moon
3.The arrival of robotic process automation (RPA) has met with much hand-wringing over its potential to displace human labour. Some headlines even adopt a 1950s science fiction flavour in heralding the oncoming march of automatons poised to steal our jobs.
These proclamations, while entertaining, don’t completely reflect the realities or possibilities of RPA. For one, the new generation of RPA doesn’t resemble the robots of popular culture – it mostly takes the form of software applications.
For another, large-scale adoption of the technology may have a much sunnier effect: it could bring previously outsourced services back onshore, potentially creating new jobs rather than eliminating them.
4.Old Stone Age, the earliest period of human development and the longest phase of mankind’s history. It is approximately coextensive with the Pleistocene geologic epoch, beginning about 2 million years ago and ending in various places between 40,000 and 10,000 years ago, when it was succeeded by the Mesolithic period. By far the most outstanding feature of the Paleolithic period was the evolution of the human species from an apelike creature, or near human, to true Homo sapiens. This development was exceedingly slow and continued through the three successive divisions of the period, the Lower, Middle, and Upper Paleolithic. The most abundant remains of Paleolithic cultures are a variety of stone tools whose distinct characteristics provide the basis for a system of classification containing several tool making traditions or industries.
