The trending topic of the year is undoubtedly Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.
Suddenly, tools capable of almost anything started appearing everywhere. We keep seeing impressive images created by DALL-E 2 or Stable Diffusion. Programs promise to write SEO content or blog posts of almost human quality. Even software capable of writing code by simply describing what you want.
Maybe this newsletter you are reading was created by an AI.
Or maybe not. Who can tell the difference anymore?
The reality is that these technologies are not new. However, until recently, it was complicated and expensive to use them outside scientific research projects. However, everything has evolved so quickly in recent years that it is now possible to use them to build software for users.
Will AI replace all jobs? We don’t have a crystal ball, but we bring you some interesting tidbits on this topic and much more.
Without further ado, let’s get down to it.
We hope you like it!

🤔 Did You Know?
Speaking of Artificial Intelligence, in 2015, we started our collaboration with PeerWell, a San Francisco start-up pioneering the use of these technologies in the field of muscle recovery.
Together we developed the SMART Motion™ technology, creating daily exercise plans tailored to each patient’s needs.
How does it work? Users only have to perform small exercises following the steps. The phone’s sensors capture the movements and analyze the information to compare it with the results of thousands of users.
It can predict progression and adapt the exercises and plans to a pace that allows the patient to regain muscle without breaking down in the attempt. And it gives relevant information to the doctor so that he/she can better follow up with the patient.
It uses this technology for exercise and improves the patient’s quality of life thanks to patented technology. The application can also detect potentially dangerous objects in a room, using Machine Learning & Augmented Reality to identify them.
💡 The Inside Scoop
Will DALL-E’s AI Replace Designers?
The name probably rings a bell. Lately, images created by Artificial Intelligence that look like the work of an experienced designer have been going viral on networks. And yes, they are incredible. So much so that people are even debating whether the future of designers or illustrators is at risk.
Are hundreds of jobs at risk? We know the technology behind DALL-E well, and although we don’t have a crystal ball, we dare to answer such an open debate. Spoiler: The image above this paragraph hasn’t been created by a human.

Something is wrong when data shows that more than 400 million children are illiterate. An existing problem in every country of the world but even more in developing countries.
Worldreader was born ten years ago, taking Kindle devices loaded with books to schools in African countries. The result was surprising, and the children were quickly hooked on reading – an absolute success! After a few years with test pilot programs in schools, they decided to go further and reach more people. How? By developing mobile applications that anyone can use.
And in 2015, we started collaborating with them to help them reach more people and promote literacy without barriers. Thanks to Worldreader & BookSmart apps, they have reached more than 21 million readers in more than 100 countries worldwide. A project we are incredibly proud of.

😮 Things That Excite Us
As always, we’ve been chewing over a whole stack of cool topics in our weekly team meetings. Here are just some of the nuggets that have emerged from our group huddles.
NVIDIA Canvas – Impressive AI landscapes
What if you could create incredible landscapes without having drawing or image editing skills? Now you can.
Microlino – Innovation in motion
This little vehicle takes up 1/3 the size of a regular car, charges like a cell phone, and does up to 230Km. And it’s cute!
How far can you get by train in Europe?
This interactive map shows how far you can get in 5h or less traveling by train. There is still a lot of room for improvement.
Whether you’re a Lego fan or not, don’t miss these stop-motion shorts that relive historical events. They’re awesome!
