Fifty years ago, American astronauts took one giant leap for humankind by landing on the moon.
They say we’re in the age of artificial intelligence, but sometimes it’s more like the computers have minds of their own.
The stars of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias research will be out next week at the 2019 Alzheimer’s Association International Conference (AAIC), July 14-18 (with preconference events starting July 11) in Los Angeles.
