Artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly advancing. Besides improving everyday activities like mowing your lawn, AI also has great potential to disrupt the healthcare industry. We’ve seen Artefact Group’s mobile clinics and Forward’s answer to a doctor’s office. Now, we’ll take a look at doc.ai. This startup wants to use AI and Blockchain to revolutionize conversations in health care. They just raised $2.3 million in future sales of their new cryptocurrency, Neuron (NRN).
We’re in the middle of vast disruption across many industries. Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain are the main ingredients to many of these changes. And yet, somehow, one industry has managed to remain rigid in the face of revolution – the travel industry. It is not due to lack of effort, though. Many startups have tried their luck. But because of the virtual monopoly that the current big players have over the industry, progression seems impossible. Winding Tree, a new Blockchain startup, aims to change that by cutting out the “middle man.”
Initial coin offerings are shattering records these days. Filecoin just set a new record for ICOs by fundraising almost $200 million in less than one hour. And TenX, a company that developed a debit card that converts cryptocurrency to fiat currency, raised $80 million in less than seven minutes.
