Have you been trying to keep track of all the technology articles we have been publishing this last month? We have put together this handy monthly round up of some of the best technology articles we have published recently. Here is our January technology round up.
Blockchain, the technology the Financial Times labeled as radical and others have called foundational, transformative and revolutionary. With all the buzz and constant developments, it can be difficult to visualise the opportunities this technology creates.
This article will introduce three distinct segments of the Blockchain ecosystem and, hopefully, direct those looking for investment and collaboration opportunities to exciting new business ventures, as well as serving as guidance for professionals looking to join the Blockchain technology revolution, in the right niche, for their own motives, ambitions and skills.
ICOs are said to be the new way to raise money. We’ve seen companies raising $100 million, $156 million, $185 million and even $232 million by selling tokens that will be used in the protocol that these companies have promised to build using this money.
Against the money raised, the tokens they gave were created and sold on the Ethereum blockchain — meaning that all the trade that took place happened on the Ethereum blockchain and the tokens created are tracked on the Ethereum blockchain. But that is changing.
I recently googled “teaching kids about Artificial Intelligence” (under parenthesis for exact match). Back came a search page with three results. When a google search yields so few entries, you know you either typed gibberish, an irrelevant topic, or a topic that is not yet well researched. After checking my spelling, I decided to look a bit further into the matter.
As a father of 8-year old twins in a transient era, I grapple with this subject. Some young parents will disagree: ‘another crazy introduction to an increasingly demanding educational agenda; let kids be kids.’ Yet it is hard to ignore. Over the past few years we have all witnessed the breakthrough progress in application of AI in our everyday lives, and have been bombarded with publications and articles about the magnitude of its impact on the future of jobs.
With the popularity of cryptocurrencies soaring as they are being adopted into the mainstream, it seems worthwhile for a glossary of cryptocurrency based terms. Below you will find 43 cryptocurrency terminologies that you may find useful if you are looking to buy in.
Israel, a country perhaps best known for its vast historical and cultural importance steeped in religion and tradition, has never been known as a major global force in sport. A quick jog of the memory may only bring up a few notable Israeli sport stars. Names such as Gal Fridman (the winner of Israel’s only Olympic gold medal) or even Premier League journeymen Yossi Benayoun and Tal Ben Haim spring to mind. Yet, in recent years Israel has asserted itself as a dominant player in one specific area of sport, sports technology.
Israeli start-ups are leading the stride in technology innovations in sports, particularly in video and sound. Indeed, Tel Aviv and the surrounding area is starting to gain a reputation of being somewhat of a ‘Silicon Valley’ for sports technology start-ups. Yet this is no accident. It is the result of many decades of military and academic research in computer vision and image analysis which now, more than ever, lends itself to technological advancements in sport.
You wake up, and see that $17.27 was automatically deducted from your primary wallet, as you had authorized to happen every day, to pay the rent for your apartment.
If you cancelled the authorization, then after a warning period ownership in the land registry contract would automatically transfer back to the landlord and the door lock would no longer recognise signatures signed by your smartphone’s private key as valid for letting you in. Of course, your landlord is bound by the same restrictions – if he shuts off his account paying the local government $6.60 land value tax per day, then he loses ownership and the contract automatically switches over so you are renting from the government instead. The government itself is simply a large decentralized organization, and you can see in real time the $6.60 moving on the blockchain and eventually getting into an account to pay for a medical research program trying to extend the human lifespan from 170 years to 230.
The new year is fully upon us and with it comes a wide variety of possibilities. This year is shaping up to be a promising one for technology. Artificial intelligence will continue to permeate our society, smartphones will only get smarter and more advanced, and big data is set to have a great year. As a data scientist, you must be familiar with big data. It is simply a major part of the job. With that being said, I just wanted to highlight a few impressive ways that major corporations are using big data to improve their products, services and even the world.
But first, what is big data? In essence, big data is a new-age term for a decades-old process. Big data is the general term for large amounts of data that can then be analyzed, processed and used to propose solutions to various problems. So how are companies using big data?
With the advent as well as the rise of the internet over the 90’s our computing supremacies, internet technologies, and adoration for on-demand content has carried about exponential development in data and data generation competencies. With more and more world populations logging on the World Wide Web, more companies are attaining customers and intensifying their business around the globe. The flow of data appears like it is set to nurture exponentially in the times to come. Data now drives our movements and our lifestyle and allows businesses to explore customer behaviours, financial patterns, and other secreted trends to make numerous processes more effectual.
