The Crucial Role of Gut Health Transforming Gut Health through Nutrition


Is your diet supporting your gut health effectively? Recently, Registered Dietician and MyFitnessPal Scientific Advisory Council member, Maya Feller, conducted a satellite media tour to explain better eating habits that support gut health to enhance your focus, energy, mood, sleep, and weight. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: According to a recent MyFitnessPal survey 1 86% of people say they’re aware of the importance of maintaining gut health and 43% actively seek out gut health-related information. However, only 18% consider themselves to be “very” knowledgeable about what contributes to gut health. In response, the no. 1 global nutrition and food tracking app, MyFitnessPal collaborated with MyFitnessPal Scientific Advisory Council Member Dr. Janese Laster, to create the Gut Health Nutrition Plan, available now to all members for free in the MyFitnessPal app. Those who opt into the week-long plan will have access to nutrition ideas and suggestions, quizzes that test knowledge and assess current eating habits, and daily check-ins that encourage reflection on progress and current knowledge to help enable behavior change and fuel motivations. MyFitnessPal’s survey found that despite 85% of people trying to incorporate a variety of fruits and vegetables into their diet to improve gut health, only 2% are consuming more than 20 fruits and vegetables each week. To bring even more awareness to a person’s food intake, MyFitnessPal introduced a free feature, Food Group Insights, which gives members an overview of the number of foods they logged in a week categorized by food groups. And for those wondering how to get gut-healthy foods on their plate, MyFitnessPal introduced a new gut health recipe collection featuring high-fiber recipes that include a variety of fruits and vegetables.

Comcast Twin Cities

Comcast announced today it will continue to significantly expand its next-generation Xfinity network into Chanhassen, Minnesota. The media and technology company will invest millions to install new fiber-rich highways that will provide multi-gig speeds and unmatched reliability to more than 10,500 homes and businesses with a planned completion by the end of 2025. The Chanhassen expansion adds to Comcast’s more than $525 million technology and infrastructure investments across Minnesota over the last three years. Comcast’s planned expansion follows February’s announcement of expanding its smart, fast, reliable fiber-rich network to seven cities in Minnesota, including Cologne and Nowthen, and parts of Corcoran, Grant, Hugo, Rogers and Stillwater Township by the end of 2024. In June 2023, Comcast completed an expansion to more than 2,300 homes and businesses in the City of Wayzata, where area businesses now enjoy Comcast Business’s suite of products, including broadband speeds of up to 100 Gbps, and Xfinity products for residents with Internet speeds faster than a gig over standard connections in the home. “We are pleased to welcome Comcast to our community. Access to high-quality cable and internet services is essential for our residents and businesses, and having more options ensures that everyone can find a plan that best meets their needs. We look forward to the benefits that increased competition and improved infrastructure will bring," said Chanhassen Mayor Elise Ryan.

By establishing the best broadband infrastructure today, we are securing the economic prosperity of these communities for tomorrow.” Comcast’s commitment to new communities goes beyond the build—addressing digital opportunities in communities through Project UP, the company’s $1 billion commitment to help tens of millions of people connect to the Internet and build futures of unlimited possibilities. Over the past three years, Comcast has invested more than $5 million in cash and in kind donations in the Twin Cities to help shrink the digital divide. The focus includes helping people build digital skills in the workforce, expanding WiFi connected Lift Zones and funding connectivity and internet adoption programs. The funding also supports ongoing efforts to build awareness about affordable connectivity services like Internet Essentials, which offers eligible households high-speed internet for $9.95/month or Internet Essentials Plus for $29.95/month. Affordable computers are also available through Internet Essentials. Since its inception in 2011, the program has connected more than 480,000 students, parents, veterans and seniors in Minnesota.

PathAI Expands Portfolio of AI-Powered Products, Announcing PathExplore™ IOP and IHC Explore™ Ahead of ASCO 2024


PathAI, a global leader in AI-powered pathology, unveiled two novel AI products, PathExplore™ Immuno-Oncology Profiling (IOP) and IHC Explore 1 ™ to empower cancer drug developers and clinical researchers with AI-powered insights. The product pairing provides unprecedented single-cell and spatial resolution of the tumor microenvironment from routine pathology samples to facilitate biomarker discovery and deeper understanding of treatment response for the next generation of cancer therapeutics. The expansion of the Explore™ portfolio comes at a time when AI-pathology is experiencing accelerated large-scale adoption across the diagnostic and biopharma industries. “As cancer rates continue to rise, the demand for advanced precision medicine tools that provide accurate biological insights has never been greater. Our mission to make a difference in patient lives is unwavering, and these new products showcase our commitment to providing researchers with the tools they need to make meaningful advancements in cancer research, treatment and care,” said Andy Beck, PathAI CEO. “We're thrilled to introduce these two groundbreaking products ahead of the American Society of Clinical Oncology annual meeting.” PathExplore IOP: H&E-Based Immune Phenotyping The composition of the tumor immune microenvironment plays a crucial role in characterizing tumors likely to respond to immunotherapy. PathExplore IOP expedites characterization of immune phenotypes by quantifying tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) and their spatial distribution using routine hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) samples. With this new product, researchers have the ability to quantify TIL spatial arrangements within tumor core and periphery, and gain insights around the sample’s immune inflamed, desert, or excluded characteristics. PathExplore IOP was designed specifically to quantify patterns of immune infiltration characteristic of a strong immune response, and ultimately improved patient survival. Immune infiltration has been previously shown to be prognostic of positive outcomes, however; standardized and scalable approaches for investigating these phenotypes remained elusive. “PathExplore IOP illustrates the power of AI by visually interrogating the dynamics between cancer cells and immune cells with unparalleled resolution for highly accurate and efficient immune phenotype classification,” said Benjamin Glass, VP of Product & Translational Research. “Researchers can now access insights at scale to better inform biomarker strategies for patient stratification and mechanisms of response and resistance.” PathExplore IOP will be featured in a poster presentation at the upcoming ASCO 2024 meeting, demonstrating the product’s application for stratification of patient response to checkpoint inhibitors in non-small cell lung cancer. IHC Explore™: AI-Powered Biomarker Quantification Immunohistochemistry (IHC) is a widely utilized approach for identifying biomarkers unique to certain cancers, informing treatment strategies, measuring prognosis, and patient classification for clinical trials. IHC scoring in the early clinical settings can be time-consuming, subjective, and low-resolution. Especially in early stage biomarker development, defining an optimal scoring system for a novel IHC assay can be complex. IHC Explore™ fills a need for spatial quantification of IHC biomarkers in single-cell resolution with broad target compatibility. IHC Explore provides a panel of standardized and structured features that quantify IHC stain abundance within and around cells of the tumor microenvironment, enabling drug developers to build biomarker scoring strategies from scratch for most IHC stains – and to precisely find those patients most responsive to treatment. PathAI’s partnership with Roche streamlines the translation of these AI insights and scoring strategies into companion diagnostic development. “Drawing on our advanced computational pathology expertise, we're extending the impact of our Explore product suite, which enables us to seamlessly support AI-powered assay development,” said Hisani Madison, VP of Precision Medicine and Medical Device Development. “This advancement is poised to revolutionize biomarker-based drug development for new immunotherapies, antibody drug conjugates, and paving the way for the analysis of the next generation of targeted cancer therapies.” Accepted Abstracts at ASCO 2024 PathAI will be attending and presenting abstracts at the upcoming ASCO event in Chicago, IL. Visit PathAI’s booth in the Innovation Hub (IH18) May 31- June 4, 2024 to meet our team, learn more about AI-powered pathology, and engage with our scientists and collaborators at their respective posters. Footnotes 1 PathExplore™ IOP and IHC Explore™ are for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures. About PathAI PathAI is the leading precision pathology company providing software and AI-enabled solutions to all pathologist stakeholders including laboratories, research institutions, and the biopharma industry. Developed with the input of hundreds of pathologists, PathAI’s digital pathology Image Management System, AISight, is the solution of choice for laboratories transitioning to digital workflows. Rigorously trained and validated with data from more than 15 million annotations, its AI-powered models can be leveraged to optimize the analysis of pathology samples to improve efficiency and accuracy of pathology interpretation, as well as to better gauge therapeutic efficacy and accelerate drug development for complex diseases.

OneMeta's AI Transforms Global Communication With Cutting-Edge Translation And Transcription


By Meg Flippin, Benzinga Though it has its downsides, in the right hands, Artificial intelligence (AI) can help overcome communication barriers, enhance human interactions and automate complex business processes. Thanks to AI and machine learning, computers and digital devices can recognize, understand and produce text and speech. ChatGPT, the popular AI chatbot developed by OpenAI and Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ: MSFT), is an example of the power of NLP – but it's not the only one. Translate And Transcribe In Seconds OneMeta Inc. (OTC: ONEI), the AI-powered translation and transcription services company headquartered in Bountiful, Utah, is making a name for itself thanks to its advanced technology that translates and transcribes spoken and written words in seconds across multiple languages. Its technology can be used in various settings and across industries, including education, finance, healthcare and legal. Whether attending a live event, participating in an online meeting or talking on the phone, OneMeta's technology offers real-time speech translation and transcription with live captions. Its VerbumCall product enables real-time translation over the phone in more than 150 languages. Meanwhile, VerbumOnSite enables attendees at live events to scan a QR code to access real-time captions in over 150 languages directly on their phones. Microsoft Likes It Then there’s Verbum for Microsoft Teams, which allows multilingual groups to come together in meetings. Each attendee chooses the language they are speaking in and the language they want to see captions and chat in. As each person speaks in their preferred language from a list of 95+ languages, it is translated in near real-time for the rest of the group. In April, OneMeta’s Verbum for Microsoft Teams received Microsoft Co-Sell Ready Status which means its product was added to Microsoft’s Teams store, AppSource Marketplace and the Azure Marketplace. That will likely boost the product’s recognition and drive sales. "Since OnceMeta just achieved Microsoft Co-Sell Ready Status we are seeing significant interest from potential customers who want to apply the Verbum software to their usage of Microsoft Teams in the 140+ languages we offer,” said OneMeta CEO Saul Leal. “We can bring our AI for translation and transcription to all enterprises without compromising privacy, compliance and data security," Alessandro Balzarelli, director at Microsoft Industry Solutions Engineering, concurred, saying the software giant expects to see Verbum’s adoption and growth by enterprises that need multi-language translation and transcription pick up. “Verbum empowers Microsoft Teams users to be more efficient and more inclusive within their own organizations and with their own customers," he said. After researching various niche industries where AI technologies would have a disruptive impact, OneMeta selected NLP technology to pursue because it believes it will have the most measurable impact and economic traction in the months to come. It's also a big business. In 2023, the global natural language processing market was valued at $24.10 billion. By 2032, it is expected to reach $158.04 billion, growing at a CAGR of 23.2% during the forecast period. Breaking Barriers, Landing New Customers OneMeta is also constantly enhancing its technology to be even faster and more seamless. That drive was on display recently when the company announced it reduced the translation and transcription speed of over 150 languages and dialects to less than 200 milliseconds. OneMeta said the breakthrough allows for the near-instantaneous interpretation of spoken content into multiple languages simultaneously, all on the same audio channel. The process is so swift it is virtually unnoticeable to both listeners and readers, surpassing the speed and accuracy of human interpreters and any existing competitive technologies, OneMeta reports. “Unlike traditional human interpreters who need to hear a full sentence before beginning translation, our technology operates on simultaneous near-real-time interpretation. This means audiences can follow conversations in real-time without the delays typically required for translation,” said Leal. “As a result, meetings can proceed at their scheduled pace, potentially reducing the time spent in meetings by up to 70%. This efficiency not only streamlines communication but also represents significant cost savings for our clients in their interpretation and translation budgets." The benefits were enough for OneMeta to land the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City as a new customer. The Archdiocese is using Verbum translation and transcription services to communicate with its multicultural parishioners. OneMeta expects more Archdioceses in many countries to adopt its technology. AI is here to stay, and while there are reasons to be concerned, with the right companies this technology can disrupt and transform industries, break down communication barriers and connect the world wherever people are. OneMeta recognizes the power of AI and has created a stack of AI-driven products that remove the language barriers that keep people apart. With demand for NLP growing, the OneMeta story is one to watch. Featured photo by Markus Spiske on Unsplash.
