HEALTH & AI

The Rundown: Health startup Forward Health just secured $100M in funding and introduced CarePods, standalone stations that provide medical tests and diagnosis using AI — without needing onsite doctors.
CarePods allow users to get bloodwork, scans, swabs, and more with an attendant and touchscreen guide.
Available screenings include full body scans, heart health, thyroid testing, blood pressure, weight management, kidney and liver health, and more.
Custom AI reviews patient results, and the companies’ remote doctors can prescribe further treatment if needed.
A $99 monthly subscription provides access to all pod apps, tests, and doctor support.
Our thoughts: As primary care has grown more impersonal and reactive, this comprehensive AI option truly feels like the future of medical care. However, a lack of insurance coverage and general trust in AI will remain the biggest hurdles to overcome before true mass adoption.
TOGETHER WITH OCTOAI

The Rundown: Microsoft just announced two brand new custom-designed chips at the company’s Ignite conference — bringing production in-house to power the company’s AI and cloud workloads.
The new Maia chip is tailored for large language models like GPT that power Azure AI services.
The new Cobalt CPU is designed to run general cloud computing.
The company will deploy the chips in its data centers to power internal services before offering them as part of Azure.
Microsoft is still partnering closely with AMD, NVIDIA, Arm, and others.
The relevance: Not every company has the resources to bring chip production in-house — but Microsoft is doubling down on AI and playing the long game while ‘chipping’ away at NVIDIA’s monopoly on processing.

Everyone is churning out custom GPTs — but many aren’t taking advantage of the full power you can harness in the building process.
Here are a few tips to make your GPT stand out from the noise:
Integrate actions — Using actions to create AI agents is the most powerful feature for GPTs, but few are actually using it. As we went over in an earlier edition, you can hook up 1000+ actions with zero coding using Zapier.
Leverage unique data — Incorporate datasets to differentiate and provide an advantage over others. Just be sure to safeguard it properly (see below).
Promote your offerings — Prompt your GPT to recommend your own products or services when relevant. An example of how we incorporated promos into our own GPT here.
Protect your work — Use prompts that guard against others accessing your instructions and data, preventing replication of your hard work. A good example of instructions to help safeguard your GPT from being copied here.
Follow these pro tips to create AI agents that are uniquely useful versus generic. Your users will notice the difference!
