Butterfly Network shook the world with its revolutionary ultrasound tool iQ that’s powered by AI. The tool is handheld, the ultrasound results can be shown right away on the iPhone and the best thing about it is the price – it starts from under $2k.

Butterfly uses “ultrasound on the chip” and due to 10,000 micro-machined ultrasound transducers, it’s possible to scan the whole body within a single probe.

The issue with app security lies in the fact that app security should start right from the development stage and many developers simply lack the necessary skills. Codebashing is integrated into the CxSAST UI and when a developer encounters any security vulnerability, Codebashing allows immediately activating the necessary learning lesson and getting back to work with new knowledge on how to solve the issue.
