🧠 This AI can see diseases that your doctor might missLINK

  • A British startup called Twinn Health has developed an AI platform to analyze MRI scans for early disease detection, focusing on metabolic diseases and aiming to improve disease diagnosis and treatment.
  • Twinn Health, supported by a $500 million fund from Saudi Aramco, is seeking to pioneer the detection and management of age-related diseases, and has achieved promising early results, with a 95% accuracy rate confirmed in trials.
  • The company is planning further expansion and is seeking FDA approval for the American market, targeting diseases such as age-related frailty and liver disease, and actively seeking additional funding for broadening its impact on longevity and preventive healthcare.
  • 💻 Apple's patents reveal a modular MacBook futureLINK

  • A new patent application from Apple reveals a design for a computing device that can have different elements, such as a keyboard, connected to it magnetically, hinting at a possible modular MacBook concept.
  • The patent, which shares some resemblance to modular laptops like the Framework DIY but with substantial differences, could represent Apple's intention to further blur the line between laptops and tablets, potentially leading to a product similar to Microsoft's Surface series.
  • The diagrams included in the patent also showcase the possibility of unconventional attachments, like a record turntable, indicating that Apple might be exploring versatile and creative ways to extend the functionality of its devices, although the realization of such concepts might be several years away.
  • 🐦 X restores Kanye West's accountLINK

  • Twitter, now rebranded as X, has reinstated musician Kanye West's account after suspending it eight months ago for violating platform rules, but he won't be able to monetize the account, and no advertisements will appear next to his posts.
  • West's suspension came after he posted an image of a swastika combined with a star of David and engaged in other antisemitic comments and actions, which led to lost business deals with companies such as Adidas, Gap, and Balenciaga.
  • The decision to reinstate West aligns with the platform's owner, Elon Musk's stance as a "free speech absolutist," as reflected in other actions like the reinstatement of former president Donald Trump's Twitter account last year.
