With no stoppage of the COVID pandemic in the foreseeable future, drug discovery has been a critical concern for the healthcare industry. But, in reality, it takes around a decade with approximately $10 million to discover a new drug, get it tested and bring it to the market. Such a delayed process can be majorly attributed to the tedious process of repetitive experiments to bring out the drug. Thus, to omit this significant hurdle in drug discovery, IBM has launched an autonomous chemistry lab combining AI, robotics and cloud technology — RoboRXN.

A cloud-based AI model, RoboRXN has been developed to perform autonomously, like a robot, using machine learning algorithms to produce chemicals and drugs in a laboratory with little to no human intervention. Not only a development like that can optimise the drug discovery process by reducing the production time, but can also lower down the cost, allowing scientists to bring out new drugs in health crises, keeping the norms of social distancing in place.

Flutter Console Coverage Test

This small dart tools is used to generate Flutter Coverage Test report to console

How to install

Add a line like this to your package's pubspec.yaml (and run an implicit flutter pub get):

dev_dependencies:
  test_cov_console: ^0.2.2

How to run

run the following command to make sure all flutter library is up-to-date

flutter pub get
Running "flutter pub get" in coverage...                            0.5s

run the following command to generate lcov.info on coverage directory

flutter test --coverage
00:02 +1: All tests passed!

run the tool to generate report from lcov.info

flutter pub run test_cov_console

report for multiple lcov.info files (-m, --multi)

It support to run for multiple lcov.info files with the followings directory structures:
1. No root module
<root>/<module_a>
<root>/<module_a>/coverage/lcov.info
<root>/<module_a>/lib/src
<root>/<module_b>
<root>/<module_b>/coverage/lcov.info
<root>/<module_b>/lib/src
...
2. With root module
<root>/coverage/lcov.info
<root>/lib/src
<root>/<module_a>
<root>/<module_a>/coverage/lcov.info
<root>/<module_a>/lib/src
<root>/<module_b>
<root>/<module_b>/coverage/lcov.info
<root>/<module_b>/lib/src
...
You must run test_cov_console on <root> dir, and the report would be grouped by module, here is
the sample output for directory structure 'with root module':
flutter pub run test_cov_console --file=coverage/lcov.info --exclude=_constants,_mock --multi

Import it

Now in your Dart code, you can use:

import 'package:test_cov_console/test_cov_console.dart';

example/lib/main.dart

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';

void main() {
  runApp(MyApp());
}

        // application has a blue toolbar. Then, without quitting the app, try
        // changing the primarySwatch below to Colors.green and then invoke
        // "hot reload" (press "r" in the console where you ran "flutter run",

Choosing the Right Digital Denture Dental Lab for Your Dental Needs

The new paradigms for digital dentistry are revolutionizing the world of dentistry. Due to advancements in technology, it has become easier than ever for dentists to offer effective solutions to their patients.
Many dentists change labs due to delays in product delivery, poor communication, high price, and inconsistencies. This guide covers some beneficial tips for choosing the right Digital Denture Dental Lab and making the relationship with the lab successful.
Buckle up!

Identify the Qualities Needed for aLong-term Practice-lab Relationship

First thing first, it is important to look for a lab willing and able to sustain a long-term interpersonal relationship. It should be punctual and reliable for providing deliveries on time. Besides, the lab should have a team of experienced professionals who can address questions, needs, and technical advisory requirements.
Even if the lab is situated a long distance away, it should be known for providing services that feel easily accessible. Apart from this, a lab should be transparent about the fees and provide great value.

Identify the choices

A reliable way to find a reputed digital denture dental lab is by reading online reviews and testimonials of various labs. It will help in knowing the overall customer service that consistently meets expectations. Besides, visiting their website will help you know more about their workflows, digital systems, and the equipment they use.

Evaluate the Trade-offs Between the Different Labs

This step needs to be given utmost significance because it will help get a clearer picture of how a dental lab deals. Make sure to have a discussion with the lab owner, technicians, and customer support team regarding the mission and values.
Communicating the priorities and reviewing samples of different labs’ work is also necessary for finding the best among the rest. So often, dentists make the mistake of not visiting the lab in person and later on face various challenges, including delays in delivery, poor quality products, etc. Therefore, avoid such situations and take a tour of the lab to know its working.

The Endnote

Digital dental labs are known for simplifying dentists’ workflow. Choosing a Full service dental lab helps stay at the forefront of workflow productivity and excellence. It saves a great amount of time and money because everything is available in one place. Since quality stands out among others, it is imperative to consider what materials are used in the fabrication processes.

The Impact Of IBM’s Move To Split On Its AI Initiatives

In one of the biggest news of the year, IBM recently announced that it is splitting its IT services business into a new company, temporarily named NewCo. The move headed by its CEO, Arvind Krishna, will lead to diversification of the world’s first big computing firm away from its legacy businesses to focus on high-margin cloud computing and AI business. The company believes that with this move, both the companies will be on an improved growth trajectory with more remarkable ability to partner and capture new opportunities.

With this, IBM becomes the big first computing firm to split up from its legacy business to focus on the new tech. The brand new IBM will accelerate and focus on the $1 trillion hybrid-cloud opportunity, whereas the NewCo. will focus on its services business with a revenue of around $19 billion. The NewCo will provide technical support to 4,600 clients in 115 countries, and is expected to record an expense of nearly $5 billion to be incurred in the separation and operational changes.

Krishna believes that this move will help the company revive growth after almost a decade of shrinking revenue, with a strategic focus on each of the businesses. “Now is the right time to create two market-leading companies focused on what they do best”, the company stated.
