This week the digital world has witnessed two examples of collaboration, a marriage between the physical and the technological, very different from each other. But with some common points. The first example is in the video game Elden Ring, which is already recurring in these parts. A third-person medieval fantasy game with asynchronous multiplayer (a game mode in which the player can request help from other players who jump from their game to ours to lend a helping hand at a certain point) has a rather absurd difficulty. peak when it comes to encountering a certain character.
Malenia, known as the Sword of Mikella, is a member of the royal family that activates the game’s folklore. Defeated and victim to a curse on her body (an aesthetically beautiful curse that mixes bloody veins with colorful insects), Malenia rests in the rotting roots of a giant tree. There we meet her. Or we try, because the truth is that inside the game’s enemies, this is the most difficult by far.
This battle in recent months has led to the bitterness of millions of players. Until we met the hero we needed. Originating first as a rumor on the internet and then as a flesh and blood expert in this fight, it’s about a player who lost 240 times to Malenia before becoming a master at this exact matchup. Now, before we fight her, if we’re lucky, we can call on her for help. She calls herself Let Me Solo Her, something like “leave me alone with her.” He does not wear a cape (he only wears underpants, in fact) or a mask, but he does have a ceramic jar to cover his head. These are all his clothes. Well, that and two swords, one in each hand. When he starts using them, we can stay and see one of the most beautiful and complete dances in the modern world of video games, as Let Me Solo Her will finish Malenia, and she will not even be able to touch him. The networks have picked up on this phenomenon. Several specialized media managed to interview this hero. On Wednesday it reached 1,000 deaths. That is 1000 players who helped overcome the biggest problem in the game.

Changing backgrounds without losing digital form, the same Wednesday announced the launch of KEYZELL OPS, an artificial intelligence system developed by Spanish biotech startup KeyZell in conjunction with tech company Iakan, which is defined as being able to “recommend personalized treatments for lung and breast cancer to healthcare professionals.” glands, taking into account the individual characteristics of each patient and his type of cancer.
In other words, KEYZELL OPS helps oncologists make more personalized decisions by reducing relapses, drug overdose, and treatment costs. The company says it uses machine learning, a continuous learning engine “that uses thousands of data from medical records to create machine learning models based on years of medical experience.” The oncologist only needs to enter the patient’s data into the platform, and it will display the most suitable treatments in the form of a rating. This is not the only such initiative.
Obviously, the story of Let Me Solo Her is just an anecdote within the framework of such wonderful entertainment as Elden Ring, and the announcement of KeyZell is important news. But while the content is different, the form is the same: both forms of collaboration with (or through) machines unimaginable just a few years ago. Remember that digital time is exponential, not linear. And let’s dare to give free rein to the imagination to draw what the world of the future could be like. Well, actually, the world inside is not that big.
