What you do on the Internet is nobody’s business but yours. At, we stand between your web use and anyone who tries to sneak a peek at it. Instead of connecting directly to a website, let us connect to the website and send it back to you, and no one will know where you’ve been. Big Brother (or other, less ominous snoops) won’t be able to look over your shoulder and spy on you to see what you’re reading, watching or saying.

It’s the year 2021. A quadriplegic patient has just had one million “neural lace” microparticles injected into her brain, the world’s first human with an internet communication system using a wireless implanted brain-mind interface — and empowering her as the first superhuman cyborg. …

No, this is not a science-fiction movie plot. It’s the actual first public step — just four years from now — in Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s business plan for his latest new venture, Neuralink. It’s now explained for the first time on Tim Urban’s WaitButWhy blog.

What is A.I. and how it will affect our $200 billion Digital Ad Market?

Posted by in categories: business, robotics/AI

Nowadays, the latest buzzword of attraction is “Artificial Intelligence” and its immediate impact on our advertising sector. As the CEO of Gravity4, I thought it to be only appropriate to help dissect this new evolutionary phase of our industry as we apply it. It is no doubt that ‘Deep Learning’ is our future, and it is on course to have a huge impact on the lives of everyday consumers and business sectors. In the scientific world, deep learning is referred to as “deep neural networks”. These involve a family of artificial intelligence, popularly known as AI, something named way back in 1955, and something which Facebook, Google and Microsoft are all now pushing for with Herculean force. In fact, according to the international data corporation, it is estimated that from a global standpoint, by 2020, the artificial intelligence market could reach close to $50 billion.

The techniques that are employed allow computers to use these tools and technologies to imitate human intelligence. These include: machine learning such as deep learning, decision trees, if-then rules, and logic.

How Accounts Can Future-Proof Their Careers In The Era Of Artificial Intelligence

Posted by in categories: business, robotics/AI

Many of these same experts point to the human experience as a key differentiator for accountants. Many people and businesses have unique needs that first or second generation AI will be unable to understand. For example, explaining complicated tax forms is better done by a human than AI right now.

Accountants today have the power to define the future of the profession. The industry must develop the ability to adapt and evolve, as well as become proactive about the needs of tomorrow’s clients. Accounting as a profession needs to change, providing consultation and guidance to help clients prepare for and meet the future.

I think offering clients insight and expertise is a better bet than offering a simple service that can be replicated by machines.
