In Episode 41 of my weekly update, I’m sharing stories and insights around the 11th anniversary of the Bitcoin white paper, impact at the intersection of technology and biology, and AI’s role in finding the best storytellers.
Behind the 304,033,233% all-time-price appreciation of Bitcoin I see 2 key elements that are often widely overlooked: the brilliant math contained in the white paper that first introduced Bitcoin to the world, and understanding blockchain’s fundamental role in enabling Bitcoin. Besides Halloween, October 31, 2019 marked 11 years since the release of “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System”, a prolific, mathematically-driven vision for the digital age.
Increased computing power is an emblematic characteristic of the digital age. It has led to technology intersecting with biology to create colossal change across health care and health care delivery value chains. Startups to established health care related enterprises are leveraging machine learning, artificial intelligence, and the blockchain to empower biological processes. One interesting example (out of many thousands) is how companies are developing therapies that can program patients’ cells to produce disease-fighting proteins.
As I’ve said constantly, exponential technologies such as artificial intelligence are industry-agonistic when it comes to impact; every single industry, every single value chain. There is no exception. When it comes to the entertainment industry, every aspect of the value chain, from creation to consumption is being impacted. As demand for content grows, companies like Imagine Entertainment use exponential technologies to find undiscovered storytellers from around the world with the best potential to meet the need.
