Scan your eyes to see how much life you have left



It sounds like something from science fiction, but there is already a study that shows that there is an important relationship between the age of the retina and the life expectancy of the human being.

Logically, it is not possible to determine exactly how much life we ​​have left by looking at the state of our retina, since death depends on thousands of different variables (including chance), but it has been possible to determine that there are people who have an age in the retina very different from his real age, and that can help to know if he faces less years of life than another person.

The study, published in the British Journal of Ophthalmology, uses an Artificial Intelligence to, after scanning someone’s eyeball, determine if they have a higher risk of premature mortality.

It is a machine learning model capable of predicting the years of a person’s life simply by looking at their retina, the back of the eye. The algorithm was used for more than 3 years among 47,000 middle-aged adults in the UK, and a decade later they found that 1,871 of those people had died, and they matched those with older-looking retinas.

In numbers, the study states:

[…] if the algorithm predicted that a person’s retina was one year older than their actual age, their risk of death from any cause in the next 11 years increased by 2 percent. At the same time, their risk of death from a cause other than cardiovascular disease or cancer increased by 3 percent.

At the moment the reason is not known, the finding is observational, but it makes it clear that the retina is very sensitive to the damage of aging. There are previous studies indicating that cells in the back of the human eye can help us predict the onset of cardiovascular disease, kidney disease and other signs of aging, this study reinforces the point.

The retinal scan takes less than 5 minutes, so it’s likely to be a fairly common exam in a few years.

It is not from scratch that it is called “China’s first supercar.” According to the automaker, “Hyper SSR is designed, developed and manufactured in-house. It’s 100% Chinese supercar.”

GAC Aion announced the establishment of a research laboratory with the China Aerospace Agency to carry out research and development in the field of aerodynamic structures, AI controls, new batteries, engines, materials, satellite remote sensing technologies and high-precision positioning.

Huawei Mate X3 will become more like Samsung flagships. This will be the company’s first foldable smartphone with an ultra-thin protective glass.



Huawei Mate X3 will become more like Samsung flagships This

Foldable flagship smartphone Huawei Mate X3 will go on sale this week. According to recent data, its internal display will be smaller than that of the X2 model.

The founder of research companies Display Supply Chain Consultants and DisplaySearch Ross Young (Ross Young) claims that the diagonal of the main screen will decrease from 8 to 7.85 inches. At the same time, interestingly, the external screen will allegedly remain at the same diagonal of 6.45 inches. True, the aspect ratio may change.

Huawei Mate X3 will become more like Samsung flagships.  This will be the company's first foldable smartphone with an ultra-thin protective glass.

What is more important is the presence of an ultra-thin protective glass on the main screen. For Huawei, this will be the first foldable smartphone with such a glass, while Samsung has been using it for several years. But here it is worth recalling that, at least in Samsung smartphones, this glass is still covered with a protective plastic film on top, which is easy to scratch.

Early reports said that the Mate X3 will have a Snapdraogn 8 Plus Gen 1 SoC and a 4800mAh battery with 66W charging.

However, this year we may not see the facelift of the fourth generation Octavia and the new generation of the Karoq model.

The Kamiq subcompact crossover and Scala compact hatchback will be the first to receive an intermediate facelift with design updates both inside and out. Enyaq’s large electric SUV will receive Laurin & Klement flagship equipment with new features. However, the price should not exceed the price of the RS model.

In addition, the announcement of the Skoda Elroq electric car, which will be a class below the Enyaq, may take place. Company chairman Klaus Zellmer said details would be released during April’s Explore More 2.0 event.

In the second half of the year, Skoda Auto is going to introduce a new generation of Superb and Kodiaq models with a plug-in hybrid drive. The former has been available as a PHEV for several years, the latter has not previously received a charging port. It is worth noting that the new Superb will no longer be produced in the Czech Republic, as production is moved to Bratislava, where it will be assembled alongside the mechanically related next-generation VW Passat.

Skoda Octavia should be updated in 2024, at the same time the presentation of the new VW Golf is expected. In the long term, there will be three electric vehicles by 2026: the Elroq, an entry-level vehicle that will replace the Citigo-e iV, and a seven-seat SUV based on the Vision 7S concept.
