Terranet to Present First Serious Lidar Alternative at CES
At next week’s International CES 2020, Terranet will demonstrate VoxelFlow - a 3D motion perception technology capable of detecting and classifying objects far more accurately and exponentially faster than Lidar. Terranet’s demo is timely considering Tesla CEO Elon Musk shocked the press just last April with his remarks: “Lidar is a fool’s errand. Anyone relying on Lidar is doomed. Doomed!” In a bold move, Swedish-headquartered Terranet plans on backing up Musk’s claims that Lidar is merely a dangerous shortcut to image recognition – a perilous reliance if that’s what the promised fully autonomous cars of the future will continue to use.
Invented by Dirk Smits, VoxelFlow was built upon the understanding that today’s camera-based computer vision and artificial intelligence navigation systems are simply too slow and subject to fundamental speed limits of perception using a frame based approach. Lidar has limited resolution and slow scanning rates, making it nearly impossible to distinguish between, for example, a fixed lamppost and a running child.
The underlying problem with Lidar or any existing camera/computer vision technology is that it cannot detect vulnerable road users with low latency. VoxelFlow on the other hand classifies dynamic moving objects at extremely low latency using very low computational power, producing 10 million 3D points per second, resulting in rapid edge detection without motion blur. The iPhone’s ‘selfie’ camera pales in comparison, producing a mere 33,000 light points per frame. Put into context, standard vehicles today and even those with autonomous driving roadmaps in place don’t use cameras much stronger than that of the iPhone’s selfie camera.
VoxelFlow’s capabilities are especially relevant considering harrowing statistics indicating that 80% of all crashes and 65% of all near-crashes involve driver inattention within the last 3 seconds of the crash. By providing life-saving decision making in milliseconds versus seconds, Terranet envisions transforming the pre-crash inattention that today accounts for roughly 1.35M road accident deaths into a forgotten collision-free swerve on the road.
“Terranet succeeding in proving VoxelFlow as a serious and necessary contender to Lidar is just the kind of shake-up the oft self-congratulatory autonomous driving community needs to kick start the new decade and save lives,” says Terranet CEO, Pär-Olof Johannesson.

Takeda Presents New Data Highlighting Scientific Advancements in Lung Cancer at ESMO Virtual Congress18.9.2020 13:55:00 EEST | Press release
Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (TSE:4502/NYSE:TAK) (“Takeda”) today announced that the company is presenting data from its lung cancer portfolio at the virtual European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) conference. Notably, insights from sub-analyses of the Phase 3 ALTA 1L study reinforce both the compelling evidence of intracranial efficacy with ALUNBRIG® (brigatinib) as a first-line treatment for patients with anaplastic lymphoma kinase-positive (ALK+) non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) as well as associated quality of life (QoL) data. Takeda is also featuring updated 10-month follow-up results from the Phase 1/2 trial of mobocertinib (TAK-788), demonstrating mobocertinib achieved a duration of response (DoR) of more than one year in the trial’s study population of patients with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) Exon20 insertion+ metastatic NSCLC (mNSCLC). “We’re pleased to present our ongoing research in lung cancer at this year’s virtual ESMO congress, including new
Incyte Announces Encouraging Results From Phase 2 Trial of Retifanlimab (INCMGA0012) in Patients With Previously Treated, Advanced Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Anal Canal18.9.2020 13:00:00 EEST | Press release
Incyte (Nasdaq:INCY) today announced results from its Phase 2 POD1UM-202 trial evaluating retifanlimab, a PD-1 inhibitor, in previously treated patients with advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the anal canal (SCAC) who have progressed following standard platinum-based chemotherapy. The trial enrolled 94 patients, including those with well-controlled human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection (10%). Retifanlimab monotherapy resulted in a confirmed objective response rate (ORR) of 14% as determined by independent central review (ICR) using RECIST v1.1. Responses were observed regardless of PD-L1 status, presence of liver metastases, age or HIV+ status. Retifanlimab was generally well-tolerated with a safety profile as expected of a PD-1 inhibitor and no loss of HIV infection control. Key findings from POD1UM-202: N=94 ORR* (95% CI) 13.8% (7.6-22.5) Best OR*, n 1 CR 12 PR 33 SD DCR 48.9% DOR, median (95% CI), months 9.5 (5.6-NE) PFS, median (95% CI), months 2.3 (1.9-3.6) OS, median (95

ESMO 2020: Phase II CLARINET FORTE Results Show Increasing Dose Frequencies of Somatuline® Autogel® (lanreotide) Allows Patients with NETs to Delay Treatment Escalation by up to 8.3 Months18.9.2020 08:00:00 EEST | Press release
Regulatory News: Ipsen (Euronext: IPN; ADR: IPSEY) today announced the release of first efficacy and safety data from the CLARINET FORTE study, with the abstract to be presented as a mini-oral presentation at the 2020 European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Congress, taking place virtually from 19-21 September 2020. The prospective single-arm, open-label, exploratory, international Phase II study investigated the efficacy and safety of increasing the dose frequency of Somatuline® Autogel ® (lanreotide) in patients with pancreatic or midgut NETs with centrally-assessed progression within the last two years while on a standard lanreotide regimen for ≥24 weeks. An extension of progression-free survival (PFS) rates and encouraging disease-control rates (DCR) were recorded in both tumor types, with no new safety signals. “These results support a clinically meaningful benefit to a population of patients with high unmet medical need by potentially delaying escalation to more toxic treatm
