(Caracas, August 21. Europa Press) –The Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT CSAIL) has developed the ReMix system, which uses wireless signals to locate micro-implants in the human body through the backscattering of the waves and that can be used for medical purposes that are focused on the localized treatment of tumors.
The ReMix system, made by the CSAIL team, makes it possible to implant small chips wirelessly and at great depth into the human body. The study was presented last week at the international conference organized in Budapest (Hungary) by the Special Interest Group of Data Communication, integrated in the Computer Machinery Association (SIGCOMM) and published on the Association for Computing website. Machines (ACM).
ReMix bases its effect on the backscattering of waves, which consists of scanning the human body of the reflection of a radio frequency signal. The emitted signal is reflected in the body and is later collected and analyzed by a receiver that creates an image of the organism, allowing precise determination of the location of an implant or microcapsule.
The purpose of this technology is to use the backscatter to a greater physical depth, because the implants are currently very close to the skin, so that the signals are recorded, since the behavior of the waves in the human body is different from the outside or a vacuum.
The technology developed by the MIT strives to detect an implant as accurately as possible and to integrate the intelligence Artificial within the clinical range.
The MIT team proposes intelligent capsules that detect a specific part of the body and work in a certain way, such as the use of radiotherapy alone and in a localized area with a tumor.
The ReMix system has two important elements: On the one hand, an external transmitter-receiver device that has multiple antennas and can work a few meters from the body of the person; and on the other hand, a backscatter module, which is placed in the body. The signals transmitted by the internal module are picked up by the external receiver and communication takes place.
The technology has been tested in recreation of human skin and in different media (water, air), in different types of animal tissue and with a live pig. The tests carried out show that ReMix can detect waves without problems in these environments, although it has not yet been tested in a living human body.
