According to one recent analysis, roughly 80% of chronic diseases can be prevented through lifestyle changes. For the most part, we know what’s good for us: Getting a full night’s sleep, exercising regularly, cutting down on stress, and eating a balanced diet. But accomplishing each of those goals is easier said than done. 

That’s because everyone’s context is different. For example, you might have trouble falling asleep because of an irregular schedule, while your friend can’t sleep because they’re drinking too much caffeine. AI firms are already working on tools that can scan medical records and detect cancer. But there are fewer platforms geared toward patients. A new startup called Thrive AI Health wants to address that problem with a customizable, AI-powered health advisor. 

How does it work?

  • The platform will fine-tune its health recommendations according to your environmental circumstance and medical history

  • You’ll be able to feed it biometric and lab data as well as personal preferences, like your favorite foods — or the days when you have the least time to do physical activity

  • It’ll then identify which lifestyle changes could have the biggest impact on your overall health

Who’s behind it? Entrepreneur Arianna Huffington and Sam Altman announced the project, which is backed by OpenAI’s Startup Fund, in an op-ed over the weekend. In it, they gave some examples of the practical advice an AI health coach can give:

“Swap your third afternoon soda with water and lemon; go on a 10-minute walk with your child after you pick them up from school at 3:15 p.m.; start your wind-down routine at 10 p.m. since you have to get up at 6 a.m. the next morning to make your flight.” 

Little by little: Physicians say that adjusting even a few habits here and there — what Thrive calls Microsteps — can add up over time. That’s where AI health coaches may be able to make the biggest difference.

 😄 One Fun Thing: Watch a police officer pull over a vehicle in Phoenix last month only to find no one inside. The Waymo taxi had run a red light and was cruising down the wrong lane. But the officer was ultimately unable to write a citation — because there was no driver he could hold accountable for the error.

 ⚠️ Cautionary Tale: Fake job postings more than doubled in 2023, due in part to advances in generative AI technology, according to the Identity Theft Resource Center. Victims can lose on average $2,000 to financial fraud schemes.

 

CHART

OpenAI’s lead has evaporated

OpenAI no longer seems to be the undisputed champ of shipping the top performing AI models. After being briefly overtaken by Gemini 1.5 Pro earlier this year, Anthropic’s Claude 3.5 has recently opened a clear gap on its top performing GPT-4o model, according to data from Anthropic.

All eyes now shift to OpenAI’s eagerly anticipated GPT-5 model, as several other rivals now seem to have caught up to — or exceeded — GPT-4 class models.
