Advancing MENA Health Through AI Vascular Age Analysis

amplifAI Health and Healthspan Digital have joined forces to introduce AI-driven precision vascular age analysis for the MENA region and beyond.

amplifAI Health, headquartered in Saudi Arabia, and Healthspan Digital, based in Toronto, have announced a strategic partnership to revolutionize precision health and longevity care in the Middle East and North Africa. The collaboration combines amplifAI Health’s AI-powered thermal hyperspectral technology with Healthspan Digital’s advanced longevity clinical protocols, aiming to provide rapid and cost-effective vascular age analysis.

Age-related diseases present a significant challenge globally — particularly in developed nations. Vascular aging, a key contributor to long-term disability and mortality among older adults, is closely linked to organ function decline and various age-related ailments. Therefore, understanding the mechanisms of this process and developing early detection techniques could significantly extend and improve the lives of millions worldwide.

Vascular aging lacks universal markers, making early detection challenging. However, a common form of vascular aging, peripheral arterial disease, can be detected through thermography by analyzing asymmetries and local temperature changes.

A notable limitation of thermography lies in the capacity of human operators to observe, analyze, and interpret thermograms accurately. AI algorithms address this limitation by objectifying findings, reducing variability, and improving accuracy and reliability. Computer-aided thermography also promises faster throughput and centralized processing, enhancing diagnostic outcomes.

Dr. Fady Hannah-Shmouni, CEO and Founder of Healthspan Digital, and a Dubai-based endocrinologist and geneticist, said: “We’re thrilled to work with amplifAI and their industry-leading technology. Cardiovascular aging and longevity share common pathophysiological mechanisms. Every 20 seconds, a limb is amputated globally. Delaying cardiovascular aging increases the likelihood of longevity, and tools like ampifAI’s AI-powered algorithms can help with early detection and surveillance”.

Dr. Meshari F. Alwashmi, CEO of amplifAI Health, added: “We’re tremendously excited to work with Healthspan, and our diverse team has what it takes to expand our sphere of knowledge regarding the application of thermography and AI on vascular aging. We hope to extend lifespan for the benefit of all humanity”.

amplifAI Health and Healthspan Digital’s integration of AI with thermal hyperspectral imaging offers an unprecedented opportunity for groundbreaking advancements in the field of medical diagnosis, enabling enhanced monitoring and evaluation of therapeutic interventions to fight vascular aging.

Adobe Teases New AI Editing Tools And Updates In Premiere Pro

The video editing app will be enhanced with a generative extend tool, text-to-video, improved timeline waveforms, and more.



adobe teases new ai editing tools and updates in premiere pro

After launching the generative AI model Firefly last year, Adobe is now showcasing how the technology will be used in upcoming versions of the editing app Premiere Pro. In an early sneak peek, the company demonstrated several new features, including Object Addition and Removal, Generative Extend, and Text to Video.

The first new feature, Generative Extend, targets a common video editing problem by using AI to “Seamlessly add frames to make clips longer, so it’s easier to perfectly time edits and add smooth transitions”.

Meanwhile, Premiere Pro’s Object Addition & Removal tool will leverage Firefly’s generative AI to “Simply select and track objects, then replace them. Remove unwanted items, change an actor’s wardrobe or quickly add set dressings such as a painting or photorealistic flowers on a desk,” Adobe states.

Adobe also showcased another new feature that can automatically generate new film clips using a text prompt. To use the content creation tool, editors can “Simply type text into a prompt or upload reference images. These clips can be used to ideate and create storyboards, or to create B-roll for augmenting live action footage,” Adobe explained. The company seems to be commercializing this particular feature extremely quickly, considering generative AI video only appeared a few months ago.

The new additions to Premiere Pro will be added later this year, but Adobe is also introducing smaller improvements to the editing app in May. The changes include interactive fade handles to enable easier transitions, an Essential Sound badge that uses AI to “automatically tag audio clips as dialogue, music, sound effects or ambience, and add a new icon so editors get one-click, instant access to the right controls for the job”, along with effect badges and a new look for waveforms in the timeline.
