Federated Learning Explained Simply

Having held Google (GOOG) shares since shortly after their IPO, we’ve always taken a “set it and forget it” approach to our investment in the company which acts as a gatekeeper to the world’s information. Lately though, we can’t help but notice Google is letting a minuscule number of employees dictate who they ought to be doing business […]

The Definition of Quantum Everything

In an earlier article, we talked about 10 companies working on quantum computing and promised our lovely readers a follow-up article on companies working on “quantum cryptography” and/or “quantum encryption”. As we sat down to write that article, we realized that we had no idea what quantum cryptography actually was. In fact, we don’t even […]

Process Mining vs. Business Process Discovery

As a boutique media company, we like to follow in the footsteps of others who have already figured things out. One of those companies is Skift, a media firm that covers one of our favorite topics outside of technology investing, travel. Slogans like “doing less with more is the new doing more with less,” or “going slow […]

Techion’s Microscope in The Cloud for Parasites

Parasites are unique in that they infect a living organism in order to get a free ride through life at the expense of the host. Like today’s modern-day millennial, parasites are careful not to disrupt the equilibrium too much so that they’re not kicked out and forced to fend for themselves. Since parasites consume nutrients […]

Altair Engineering Stock is a Play on Simulated Design

Investing in disruptive technologies appeals to investors because it promises high growth over short periods of time when compared to a slow-moving technology benchmark like Nasdaq. In many cases, it’s a get rich scheme in disguise. In other words, if that “next Microsoft” you think you’re holding can’t manage to beat a bog-standard market benchmark, you’ve […]

Group-IB: Threat Intelligence for Cybersecurity

One of the oldest cities in Russia is Samara, a town of just over one million people making it the ninth biggest city in Russia. It also happens to be a center for Russian aerospace and aviation which means there’s lots of talent around, any number of which can’t find work and end up turning […]

LiFi: Can Visible Light Communication Save the Internet?

One obstacle to many emerging technologies is that often there is not enough infrastructure to support its full-scale roll-out. One example is building a robust charging network that ensures electric vehicles don’t run out of juice on a cross-country roadtrip. In the computing world, we’ve talked about how Moore’s Law – the theorem that computing […]

Using Blockchain for Will and Testaments

They say that everyone dies twice – once when they take their last breath, and again when the last person to remember them takes their last breath. It’s a morbid topic that only becomes more depressing when you realize that most people aren’t prepared for it financially. Approximately 55% of American adults do not have a will […]

This Little-Known 5G Stock is About to Blow

We’ve learned the hard way that researching and writing about exciting technologies doesn’t mesh well with being a prudent investor. Rare is the person who can identify the next Microsoft, get in at the right price and with a meaningful amount of capital at stake, and then sell at the right time. The reality is that […]

When Business Intelligence Meets Artificial Intelligence

Working in information technology is only great up until you decide to stop. While actively working in the business, you’re constantly exposed to the latest and greatest tools of the trade. Leave that domain, and suddenly you’re completely lost as to what’s hot and what’s not. Maybe it’s not even called information technology anymore (it […]
