And it wasn’t just the later rounds and unicorns that saw all of the activity. According to Crunchbase, angel and seed-stage activity accounted for approximately 59 percent of all deal volume – almost $25 billion was in...more

Posted at 5/29/2019 1:31:20 PM

Artificial intelligence is developing so quickly that standardized responsible practices—set out in legislation, regulation or industry codes—may take many years to adequately govern intelligent technologies. In the meantime, organizations must self-regulate to ensure AI is used responsibly. But what should this self-regulation look like? And can it work effectively without blocking innovation?

Posted at 5/29/2019 1:22:42 PM

Technology grants instant access to world events, distant loved ones, and on demand transportation, but the access that many take for granted isn’t readily available to everyone.

Brian P. Christie
Posted at 3/17/2019 8:19:15 AM

Recently, I got yet another connection request from a fake LinkedIn profile / user. Fake profiles seem pervasive on LinkedIn and it gives bad actors a chance to wreak havoc, steal data, hack, and be a general menace to society.

In the wake of several major recent natural disasters, like raging wildfires along the west coast and record breaking hurricanes Harvey and Irma, it seems that our high impact living is catching up with us in full force -- but don't tell that to "stupid" climate change deniers (the Pope's characterization of these people, not mine).

Three BIG Ideas for President Trump

In 2014, I met face-to-face with President Obama (along with other entrepreneurs) to share ...more

When we told our Brainsy clients that we planned to release "SixFree Calling" - a new feature on the Expert Calling Network (ECN) platform to allow experts to make themselves available for short, time-limited, FREE phone calls, they applauded. What is SixFree calling you might ask and why would people who want to get paid for calls offer up their time for free?

A “SixFree” call is an ...more
