According to the Alzheimer’s Association, About 1 in 9 people aged 65 and older (10.7%) suffers from Alzheimer's disease. 😞

What’s new? With no foolproof blood test for Alzheimer's and the presence of dementia symptoms in other disorders, early detection becomes challenging. Enter AI algorithms that efficiently analyze brain images.

How does this work? AI4AD, a consortium led by neuroscientist Paul Thompson, leverages AI to analyze and integrate genetic, imaging, and cognitive data related to Alzheimer's. This research group has developed AI algorithms which distinguish characteristics of Alzheimer's and identify crucial structural features. These visual “biomarkers” aim to facilitate the identification of disease-contributing genes by applying the method to extensive databases, such as the UK Biobank. Initial trials exhibit promising results, with these AI classifiers achieving over 90% accuracy in detecting Alzheimer's in brain scans. The potential integration of AI-driven biomarkers into risk scores offers hope for early intervention as well as more tailored treatment for patients who suffer from this horrible disease.


Smartphones will soon be a thing of the past, as the AI wearable pin is here! 🤯

What’s new? In one of the biggest AI hardware advancements yet, Humane, the innovative AI startup founded by former Apple designers Imran Chaudhri and Bethany Bongiorno, has unveiled the Humane AI Pin, which aims to revolutionize personal technology by replacing smartphones and introducing a new way to interact with AI.

How does it work? The AI Pin, equipped with a Qualcomm chipset and powered by GPT-4, has voice-controlled features for making calls, sending texts, and information retrieval. It also employs a laser display, transforming the user's palm into a miniature touch screen! Another notable feature is its non-intrusive nature: no wake words, and it only activates upon user engagement through voice, touch, gesture, or the laser ink display.

Will this replace smartphones? The adjustment from handheld smartphones to wearable, screenless pins will be one that takes a bit of time to adopt, but over time, it seems very possible that phones in pockets are replaced by pins on clothing. As AI has continued to transform technology itself, it seems there is an inevitable shift happening in how we interact with that technology as well.

When will it be available? Humane has partnered with T-Mobile, requiring users to subscribe to a $24 monthly data plan. This pin operates independently with its phone number, distinguishing itself from tethered smartwatches. Priced at $699, this lapel pin is set for orders starting November 16.

90% of the world’s ice is located in Antarctica. 🧊

What’s up? Massive icebergs in Antarctica are projected to melt rapidly over the next century, and Leeds University researchers have found a way to use AI to monitor this process.

How does this work? The study introduces a groundbreaking neural network trained on images from the European Space Agency's Sentinel-1 satellite, capable of penetrating cloud cover and darkness. The AI exhibited a 99% accuracy in detecting icebergs, including those as large as 1052 square kilometers. Unlike the time-consuming human method, which takes minutes to outline a single iceberg in an image, AI accomplishes the task in a staggering 0.01 seconds—10,000 times faster.



The Singularity Meter rises 0.7% today. The Humane AI Pin, a new wearable hardware device, was released.
