Wearables tracking human health factors isn't new but the communications links can be patchy. French Rugby have recently partnered with the European Space Agency to equip players with GPS-enabled devices to track their positions, speed and physiological details in the hope it can reduce impact & likelihood of concussion. Moving communications to the (earth's) edge will no doubt see more applications scale up.more info:https://www.esa.int/Applications/Navigation/Satnav_watching_over_rugby_players

Instead, it’s partnering with D-Wave, IonQ and Rigetti and making their systems available through its cloud. In addition, it’s also launching the AWS Center for Quantum Computing and AWS Quantum Solutions Lab.With Braket, developers can get started on building quantum algorithms and basic applications and then test them in simulations on AWS, as well as the quantum hardware from its partners.

Voice assistants will be embedded in your life, if Alexa et al have their way
Voice assistants aren't new, but could they become a vital member of your family and life? Amazon's Alexa plans to move from passive to proactive interactions - that is, pre-empt your request and needs rather than wait for your prompt.
