Scientists must rise above politics — and restate their value to society
Scholars globally are feeling the heat from politicians. They should take inspiration from scientists in the 1950s who raised the alarm over nuclear weapons.

Now You Can Experiment With OpenAI’s “Dangerous” Fake News AI

When OpenAI, the AI research organization founded by Elon Musk, created a text-generating AI system called GPT-2, the group said it was too dangerous to be released lest it be used to create propaganda or fake news.

Now, thanks to a website called “TalkToTransformer.com,” you can use a watered-down version of the algorithm to write your to-do list, draft a new screenplay, or write rambling essays based on a prompt. The results aren’t perfect, but by making the algorithm publicly accessible, people could get a better understanding of what advanced AI is capable of and where it falters.

Five conversations with biology’s Captain Marvel, George Church 

When it comes to tinkering with the stuff of life, George Church is the equivalent of a Lego master builder.

A professor of genetics at Harvard Medical School, Dr. Church, 64, is known for his role in developing synthetic biology – the science of creating new structures and functions from the molecular ingredients of living cells. Since the 1980s, his work has helped trigger multiple revolutions that stem from reading, writing and manipulating DNA. Among his contributions to the field, Dr. Church is one of the scientists credited with developing the gene-editing technology known as CRISPR.

Last fall, a Chinese researcher, He Jiankui, stunned the world when he announced that he has used CRISPR to alter the DNA of a set of twin newborn girls, to give them resistance to a form of HIV.

This week, Dr. Church sat down with The Globe and Mail to discuss the CRISPR babies and other topics while he was in Toronto for a synthetic biology conference organized by Ontario Genomics.

Phage Therapy: Turning the Tables on Bacteria

When engineered to incorporate CRISPR components, phages may overwhelm bacterial defenses or transform bacterial functions

Throughout the life and death (and nonlife) struggle between bacteria and bacteriophages, bacteria try to cut apart the genetic material that bacteriophages deploy when they try to commandeer bacterial resources. And now the bacterial weapon of choice, the immune system known as CRISPR, is starting to cut both ways. CRISPR components are being engineered into bacteriophages, arming them against pathogenic bacteria, including antimicrobial-resistant bacteria. In phage therapies, CRISPR-wielding bacteriophages may kill bacteria or compel them to carry out useful functions. For example, after suffering a few thrusts of the CRISPR sword, otherwise recalcitrant bacteria may have no choice but to express therapeutic proteins.

The swashbuckling ways of engineered phages are possible only though the patient work of highly disciplined researchers. For example, two research teams—one based at Rockefeller University, and one at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)—began independent investigations of phage therapy that culminated in a close and productive collaboration.

Microsoft moves into biological computing with Station B

Tech giant rolls out new system to analyse vast volumes of biomedical data

Microsoft will make a big move into biotechnology on Tuesday with the launch of a new research system that enables scientists to engineer living cells using machine learning and data analysis.

The tech giant is partnering with researchers at Princeton University in the US and two UK companies — Oxford BioMedica, which focuses on gene and cell therapy, and Synthace, which develops scientific software — as it rolls out the new system, called Station B.

The platform is a set of integrated computer programs that analyse vast volumes of biomedical data. It advises scientists how best to proceed with their research, for example suggesting how best to edit DNA to make genes function in a particular way.

“This is a big moment for us,” said Andrew Phillips, head of the biological computing group at Microsoft Research Cambridge in the UK, who has led the project. “We have been working for almost 10 years toward Station B. Now we are moving on to the next stage.”
