Artificial heart to be sold in Europe
The artificial heart is made by a French company called Carmat, and is designed for people with end-stage biventricular heart failure. That’s when both of the heart’s ventricles—chambers near the bottom of the heart that pull in and push out blood between the lungs and the rest of the body—are too weak to carry out their function.It’s been approved as a temporary replacement while patients wait for donor hearts, and is estimated to last about five years.Carmat’s artificial heart will launch commercially in Germany and France in the second quarter of this year. https://singularityhub.com/2021/01/20/this-artificial-heart-will-soon-be-on-the-market-in-europe

Mini Human Brains With Muscles Attached
The next big thing in probing the brain is assembloids—free-floating brain circuits—that now combine brain tissue with an external output.To be clear, few would argue that today’s mini-brains are capable of any sort of consciousness or awareness. But as mini-brains get increasingly more sophisticated, at what point can we consider them a sort of AI, capable of computation or even something that mimics thought? We don’t yet have an answer—but the debates are on.https://singularityhub.com/2021/01/12/meet-assembloids-mini-human-brains-with-muscles-attached

Drone data SaaS solution for physical asset managers
Trendspek significantly reduces the cost, risk and time to manage high value assets.  Inspecting large physical assets (like high-rise buildings, towers, bridges, silos and stadiums) should not involve manual methods.  It’s not ethical to put humans at risk when a drone can do that work.  Additionally, drone imagery is superior and can generate a 3D twin for Trendspek’s cloud-based SaaS workflow tool and governance archive.  With true-to-life digital models, you can make quick yet fully-informed decisions based on data.  With an exact digital twin of your asset, you can inspect every detail remotely, safely and economically and coordinate maintenance.   https://trendspek.com/
