While advanced or inoperable hepatocellular carcinoma patients treated with selective internal radiation therapy showed similar overall survival to patients receiving sorafenib, it caused significantly fewer treatment-related adverse effects and delivered significantly better quality of life.

A phase III trial has found that selective internal radiation therapy may be safer for patients with advanced HCC than sorafenib.

AI technology smartens up drones for commercial adoption

Artificial intelligence has the potential to turn today's simple drones into indispensable robot partners.

New technology from such companies as Santa Clara-based  Nvidia is equipping drones with the capability to operate and perform complex tasks on their own. Industry insiders believe that this could pave the way for drones to be widely employed in large numbers in commercial applications, from delivering packages to inspecting infrastructure to serving as robot waiters.  

Nvidia is a part of a wave of tech firms hoping to join the drone market. Companies ranging from technology giants like Intel and Apple to startups like Matternet are offering everything from unmanned aerial vehicles themselves, to enabling technologies, to complete drone-delivery services.

Following behind-the-scenes maneuvering and a public relations blitz by Democratic leaders, the California state legislature on Thursday evening, April 6, approved a $52 billion transportation funding package that raises the gas tax and imposes new vehicle fees to fix the state's crumbling roads.

SB 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, passed the senate by a 27-11 vote, barely clearing the two-thirds hurdle needed to pass tax increases. After 10:30 p.m. the Assembly OK'd the bill on a 54-26 vote.
