Startup uses AI to help with fertility

Cercle, a new health tech startup focusing on women's health and fertility care, has launched with backing from notable global partners and investors, including Sheryl Sandberg, Meta's former COO. The company leverages artificial intelligence to structure unstructured medical data, like medical records and test results, for fertility specialists and researchers. Cercle's platform allows doctors to review and learn from the anonymized data of patients with similar health profiles, like those who have undergone egg freezing, to optimize patient care.

Cercle has established partnerships with Eurofins Genoma in genetics and US Fertility, which is the largest fertility network in the nation, supporting over 100 clinics. While Cercle is starting with fertility services, they intend to broaden their focus to encompass a wider range of women's health issues.

Humane AI Pin pricing

One of its unique features is the Laser Ink Display, which projects information like incoming calls onto the user's palm. The device functions independently, without needing a smartphone, through a Humane-branded wireless network over T-Mobile. It comes with battery boosters for power swapping and a "Trust Light" to indicate when recording is active, highlighting its focus on user privacy. The Ai Pin runs on Cosmos, a proprietary OS integrated with AI, eliminating the need for traditional apps. Demo video here.

Last chance to invest before this company becomes a household name

What if you had the opportunity to invest in the biggest electronics products before they launched into big box retail, would you?

Through retail distribution deals with Best Buy, Ring changed doorbells and Nest changed thermostats. Early investors in these companies earned massive returns, but the opportunity to invest was limited to a select, wealthy few.

The game has changed, and for once investors have the option to invest in a company that’s gearing up for a massive retail rollout.

RYSE is set to debut in 100+ Best Buy stores this month, and you're in luck—you can still invest at only $1.25/share before their name becomes known nationwide.

They have patented the only mass market shade automation device, and their exclusive deal with Best Buy resembles that which led Ring and Nest to their billion-dollar buyouts.

Amazon’s Olympus AI model

Amazon is developing a new model named Olympus after its initial batch named Titan did not meet expectations. Amazon is ambitiously aiming for Olympus to rival the likes of OpenAI and Microsoft in the AI space, signaling its desire to be self-reliant rather than dependent on AI models from other providers, like Anthropic.

However, the challenge for Amazon lies in overcoming the tepid reception of its previous model, Titan. Titan's launch was delayed due to its underperformance compared to OpenAI's ChatGPT, and even after release, the feedback from AWS customers has been lukewarm.

DDoS attack blamed for ChatGPT outage

OpenAI has attributed the recent intermittent outages of ChatGPT and its developer tools to a DDoS attack. Over the past day, users attempting to access ChatGPT encountered messages indicating the service was at capacity. Initially, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman suggested the disruptions were due to overwhelming interest in new features from a recent developer conference, but the problem was believed to be resolved around 1 p.m. PST on November 8.

However, the issue persisted, and OpenAI later acknowledged the outages were caused by an abnormal traffic pattern consistent with a DDoS attack, which floods a service with excessive requests. While OpenAI has not provided detailed information about the attack, the hacktivist group Anonymous Sudan, believed to be linked to Russia, has claimed responsibility.
