Through extensive testing and the integration of AI/ML/Deep Learning technologies, we expanded our vision to include educational content.
In September 2022, THX News successfully launched a next-generation website, leveraging cutting-edge technology akin to what powers platforms like Netflix.
Our ultimate goal is to deliver a free website that offers personalized, multilingual information across three distinct industries.
While we are in constant development, our commitment to quality and global accessibility remains unwavering.

Our investigation uncovered numerous shortcomings in these healthcare facilities, revealing challenges that demand attention.
While we refrained from providing exhaustive details at this juncture in our evolution, our commitment is to collaborate with governments to ensure transparency and accountability, urging them to furnish reliable information for the benefit of the public.
