The smart toilet era is here! Are you ready to share your analprint with big tech?

The Guardian

For the past 10 years, Sonia Grego has been thinking about toilets – and more specifically what we deposit into them. "We are laser-focused on the analysis of stool," says the Duke University research professor, with all the unselfconsciousness of someone used to talking about bodily functions. "We think there is an incredible untapped opportunity for health data. And this information is not tapped because of the universal aversion to having anything to do with your stool." As the co-founder of Coprata, Grego is working on a toilet that uses sensors and artificial intelligence to analyse waste; she hopes to have an early model for a pilot study ready within nine months.

Top 10 Fitness Apps That Use AI and Machine Learning Models


In the 21st century, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are becoming commonplace. Both are becoming more important components of current workout routines. AI has become intrinsically connected to health and fitness. AI, according to technologists, improves everything. When it comes to fitness, it has the potential to empower the app by dramatically increasing engagement, which may lead to long-term income.

MIT's toolkit lets anyone design their own muscle-sensing wearables


MIT has unveiled a new toolkit that lets users design health-sensing devices that can detect how muscles move. The university's Science and and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) created the kit using something called "electrical impedance tomography" (EIT), that measures internal conductivity to gauge whether muscles are activated or relaxed. The research could allow for wearables that monitor distracted driving, hand gestures or muscle movements for physical rehabilitation. In a paper, the researchers wrote that EIT sensing usually requires expensive hardware setups and complex algorithms to decipher the data. The advent of 3D printing, inexpensive electronics and open-source EIT image libraries has made it feasible for more users, but designing a wearable setup is still a challenge.

Dubai: Policy launched to regulate artificial intelligence in healthcare


A policy regulating the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare has been launched in Dubai. AI in healthcare includes the use of robots to perform surgery faster and assist the surgeon more efficiently; and data-based analysis of health information. Dr Mohammad Al Redha, director of Health Informatics and Smart Health Department at the Dubai Health Authority (DHA), said AI refers to systems or devices that simulate human intelligence to perform tasks with the use of data. The policy aims to determine regulatory requirements for the provision of AI solutions healthcare. It lays down the ethical requirements and defines the main roles and responsibilities of stakeholders.

Initiative aims to spur innovation by connecting, analyzing data bases - Indianapolis Business Journal


Fueled with a $36 million grant from Lilly Endowment Inc., the Central Indiana Corporate Partnership has launched an initiative called AnalytiXIN to promote innovations in data science throughout Indiana. Build connections between Indiana's manufacturing and life sciences companies and the university researchers who can help them use artificial intelligence and advanced data analytics to tackle big challenges like reducing a factory's carbon footprint or improving worker health. "This is one way to ensure early that these kinds of critical collaborations are happening," said David Johnson, president and CEO of the Indianapolis-based Central Indiana Corporate Partnership. About half of the $36 million will be used to hire university-level data-science researchers, some of whom will be based at 16 Tech in Indianapolis. The other half will go toward the creation of "data lakes," or large data sets built from information from multiple contributors.

Role of Artificial Intelligence in Diet Planner and Nutrition App


The food-as-medicine paradigm has gained traction in recent years, partly due to physicians' and clinicians' growing understanding of the importance of using food in chronic illness therapy alongside drugs. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a game-changing technology that is being used to learn more about individualized diets in the fields of nutrition and wellness. Linear and nonlinear interactions between numerous nutritional elements affecting us have been modeled by experts of AI development company. Food firms and tailored food product services use this approach to create better forecasts and healthy intake. It is accomplished by using deep learning to analyze the genetic information of individuals in order to produce precise forecasts and appropriate food recommendations.

Traditional Gyms v/s Smart Gyms: Winner of the Fitness Industry


IoT and artificial intelligence are two of the major disruptive technologies that have penetrated into the health and fitness industry in recent years. People are now more concerned with their health and fitness to keep their bodies fit from many potential diseases such as diabetes, thyroid, and many more. To keep up with the huge demand, the fitness industry has started transforming traditional gyms into smart gyms by implementing AI models in gyms. People are getting attracted to smart gyms to become more fit and healthy to raise the standard of living. The fitness industry is booming in the 21st century with the help of these user-friendly disruptive technologies.

Why Silicon Valley's Optimization Mindset Sets Us Up for Failure

TIME - Tech

In 2013 a Silicon Valley software engineer decided that food is an inconvenience--a pain point in a busy life. Buying food, preparing it, and cleaning up afterwards struck him as an inefficient way to feed himself. And so was born the idea of Soylent, Rob Rhinehart's meal replacement powder, described on its website as an International Complete Nutrition Platform. Soylent is the logical result of an engineer's approach to the "problem" of feeding oneself with food: there must be a more optimal solution. It's not hard to sense the trouble with this crushingly instrumental approach to nutrition.
