But this isn’t a story about robots taking over our lives and stealing our jobs. Instead, this is a story about how AI can help make businesses and their employees more innovative, creative and efficient.”

Security AI is the next BIG thing

“In the world of cybersecurity, speed kills. In less than 20 minutes, a skilled adversary can break into an organisation’s network and start exfiltrating critical data assets. As the volume of data modern companies produce increases, it’s becoming ever more difficult for human analysts to spot malicious activity until it’s too late. This is where cybersecurity AI can come to the rescue.

This hostile threat landscape has led organisations like Microsoft to use AI as part of their internal and external cybersecurity strategy. “We’re seeing this incredible increase in the volume of attacks, from human-operated ransomware through all different kinds of zero-day attacks,” said Ann Johnson, corporate vice president of security, compliance, and identity at Microsoft.”

Over 60% of the top 1,000 start-ups In Europe were founded in UK, Germany, & France

“We studied Europe’s top 1,000 start-ups to learn how they succeed in the region’s fragmented value pool and found the answers lie in four distinct strategic plays.

European start-ups are being created and growing at an unprecedented pace these days, attracting the attention of global investors, customers, and corporate partners alike. They are proving the conventional wisdom wrong in the process: launching a start-up amid the continent’s fragmented value pool doesn’t necessarily have to be such a challenging proposition.

Despite the range of systemic challenges start-ups still face, including regulatory and cultural challenges, growing numbers of dynamic new ventures are thriving. These bold players offer valuable lessons for others aspiring to similar heights—and to a European continent striving to stay economically and technologically competitive with the rest of the world.”

Fintech And The End Of Money

👁️‍🗨️ Read Article

 

“This Fintech Revolution May End Cash, But The Next Fintech Revolution May End Money.

Noted Fintech investor Matt Harris, a partner at Bain Capital Ventures BCSF +1.4%, recently predicted here in Forbes that fintech would mean the end of money as we know it. He wrote that rather than money as we know it, in the future, “our assets will be 100% invested at all times”. In this vision of the future of money, transactions will be settled through the transfer of baskets of assets between counterparties without the intermediary of money.”
