Artificial Intelligence Isn’t Ready to Take Over From Doctors and Nurses, Just Yet
Artificial intelligence certainly has the potential to do a lot of good in the world of healthcare, with its ability to assist doctors and bring data practices up to speed. There is, quite rightly, caution around the level of trust we can put in the technology at this stage of its development, though, and anything promising to replace doctors should be greeted with extreme scepticism.

Traffic Lights in The Sky: Flying Cars Can Appear Sooner Than You Think
Thanks to science fiction, flying cars have been in the public consciousness for  decades. Despite movies predicting that we would, by now, be transported around cities in them, flying cars have always remained something of a pipedream, hovering in the background as more urgent technological advancements are made. Could the development of drones serve as a blueprint for their eventual realisation?
