Isaac Asimov is reported to have described the invention of the integrated circuit (IC) as 'the most important moment since human emerged as a life form'. Although it sounds exaggerated (when IC is compared with sliced bread :) ), 95% of last year's worldwide semiconductor revenue (~$460 billion) was from ICs. The concept of an IC as in its present form was considered technologically not feasible by Bell Labs (where transistor was invented and home to 6 other Nobel prizes in Physics). Circuit designers saw it as a threat to their livelihood and resisted its use when it was introduced.
Based on a detailed study of the bacterial Shiga toxin we discuss the membrane mediated interactions between membrane inclusions. Shiga toxin interacts with its cellular receptor, the glycosphingolipid globotriaosylceramide (Gb3 or CD77), as a first step to entering target cells. This is followed by clustering of the Shiga Toxin-receptor complexes at the membrane and tubular invagination into the cytoplasm of the cell.
Abstract: The next generation of robots are going to work much more closely with humans, other robots and interact significantly with the environment around it. As a result, the key paradigms are shifting from isolated decision making systems to one that involves shared control -- with significant autonomy devolved to the robot platform; and end-users in the loop making only high level decisions.
