How This Former MIT Professor And Google Engineer Used Holograms To Build A $28 Million Startup – Lauren Aratani

1

A red laser pointer shining through a raw chicken carcass may not seem like groundbreaking science, but for veteran technologist Mary Lou Jepsen, it’s worth $28 million in funding for her latest startup, Openwater. Jepsen performed the chicken act as part of her August TED Talk to illustrate how her imaging-tech company is building cost-conscious body-scanning technology by using the same components one might find at a science fair. The laser pointer’s light made both skin and bone of the plucked fowl glow, revealing a tumor just under its flesh……..

Tech Giant IBM Collaborates with Columbia University to Introduce Two Blockchain Accelerator Programs – Julie Williams

1.jpg

A press release released in the IBM News Room on November 19 stated that the tech giant with the help of the world’s leading research university, Columbia University, intends to launch two accelerator programs to help accelerate the growth of blockchain-based tech startups.

The press release stated that both accelerators, which are key components of the partnership entered by both parties – the Columbia-IBM Center for Blockchain and Data Transparency – were built to offer entrepreneurs and blockchain network founders across the globe the opportunity to access the necessary expertise and resources needed to establish blockchain networks.

Both accelerators are designed to power up to 10 of such blockchain-based tech startups. Through this programs, they will have uninterrupted access to the Columbia research community and student talent pools, IBM Cloud technology, a solid network of business and technical support, and IBM active design workshops. The programs which are in two parts – the IBM Blockchain Accelerator and the Columbia Blockchain Launch Accelerator – are scheduled to run through a period of sixteen weeks with each program lasting for eight weeks.

The first program named the IBM Blockchain Accelerator is designed to build an enterprise business network and client base for later-stage blockchain-based companies across the globe. This eight-week program is scheduled to be held in New York and San Francisco.

While the other half of the equation, the Columbia Blockchain Launch Accelerator, is designed to cater to the needs of pre-seed, idea-stage companies which affiliated with Columbia or other recognized universities based in New York. Like the first program, this accelerator program is scheduled to be held for eight weeks. The program is proposed to run for eight weeks on-site in New York City.

In preparation for these programs, the channel for nominations is now open to the general public, while we look forward to January 2019 when the application for Launch would open. The partners released a public note stating that participants are not required to pay a fee as they do not take equity or charge a fee for participating in either of the accelerator programs.

Commenting on the new development, David Post – the Managing Director of IBM Blockchain Accelerator – said that blockchain technology presents endless possibilities and technical talents are rising up to the task by building game-changing applications. He explained further that the tool required to bring about this change is the right expertise and that is the reason IBM is collaborating with Columbia to give early and mid-stage founders a way to build enterprise-grade networks that are capable of pushing blockchain innovation forward.

From an office suite on the 26th floor of the iconic Frost Bank Tower in Austin, Texas, a little-known recruiting firm called Crossover is searching the globe for software engineers. Crossover is looking for anyone who can commit to a 40- or 50-hour workweek, but it has no interest in full-time employees. It wants contract workers who are willing to toil from their homes or even in local cafes. The best people in the world aren’t in your Zip code,” says Andy Tryba, chief executive of Crossover, in a promotional YouTube video. Which, Tryba emphasizes, also means you don’t have to pay them like they are your neighbors. “The world is going to a cloud wage……………

“You don’t get a medal for not doing a good job,” says Recode’s executive editor, Kara Swisher.
