The summer of 2017 has seen an explosion in new cryptocurrencies, with dozens of startups using digital currency as a fundraising mechanism. According to Bloomberg, initial coin offerings (ICOs) have raised over $1.6 billion in the past year, prompting many to speculate on the decline of venture capital as a model for funding new startups.
The ICO explosion of the past year can be mostly attributed to the growth of the Ethereum blockchain, and the ease with which Ethereum permits the creation of new coins. Many startups have raised millions of dollars on Ethereum with little more than a concept and a white paper, circumventing the traditional routes for seed funding from accredited investors. While there’s some controversy over how to classify and regulate these ICOs, it’s clear that a new alternative model has emerged for early stage funding. By and large, that model is based on the capabilities of the Ethereum blockchain.Read More

Ten years ago, researchers thought that getting a computer to tell the difference between a cat and a dog would be almost impossible. Today, computer vision systems do it with greater than 99 percent accuracy. How? Joseph Redmon works on the YOLO (You Only Look Once) system, an open-source method of object detection that can identify objects in images and video -- from zebras to stop signs -- with lightning-quick speed. In a remarkable live demo, Redmon shows off this important step forward for applications like self-driving cars, robotics and even cancer detection.

But some jobs — and industries — will still require a human touch. Technology researchers Andrew McAfee and Erik Brynjolfsson have a guess as to which ones.
A surprising report published this spring projects that 30 percent of current jobs in the UK might be replaced by automation in the next 15 years. That number is 21 percent in Japan, 35 percent in Germany and a whopping 42 percent in the United States. The losses will come mainly from the transportation, banking and retail industries, and largely around jobs that involve a lot of routine, repeatable tasks.

The project is inspired to help children living with ADD, to help to understand what is causing attention spikes.Read More
