AI is an online babysitter for parents who don’t want to invade privacy


No parent today should need to be told their kids are at risk every time they go online, use a cellphone, or engage in internet activities. It may be difficult for some to imagine that their child could get involved in something dangerous, but it happens. Even to good kids. To get some insight, we spoke with Dr. Matt Phillips, who is a brain surgeon, a father, and the creator of an AI-powered parenting app called Social Judo. He told us he was worried about his kids “I’m a brain surgeon, you know,” he said with a chuckle, “I like…

Why smart contracts and blockchains are coming sooner than you think


For centuries, massive, critical components of our global economy have been organized around legacy infrastructure. Vastly important industries, like government and finance, continue to stagnate behind the capabilities of modern technologies, a demonstration of how complex and regulated systems breed inefficiency. Enter blockchain, an adaptable technology that, if implemented by entrepreneurs and industry leaders effectively, can solve for some of our most fundamental challenges that we face as a species. At scale, we can leverage blockchain to optimize industries and empower a globally accessible economy. Blockchains, at a high level, operate as public, immutable ledgers that can be programmed to…

Facebook adds Snooze button to mute annoying friends and Pages


We all have that one Facebook friend. You know the one I mean — they post oodles of updates on one particular topic, usually one which doesn’t interest you, or might if they weren’t saturating your entire Newsfeed with the stuff. (I plead the fifth when it comes to my own friends.) You don’t want to unfriend them, or even unfollow them. You just, you know … need a break. Facebook today introduced Snooze with exactly that idea in mind. If you hit Snooze on a friend’s profile, you won’t see any of their updates in your Newsfeed for 30…

This site lets you turn your photos into quirky and unique gifts


I’m crap at Christmas. My Achilles heel is finding gifts for people. Some people are good at it. I am not. Typically, one week before Christmas, I’ll go on Amazon and buy a few bottles of bourbon and gin (whatever is cheap in a lightening deal), and dole them out like a booze-soaked Santa Claus. Thankfully, sites like MiPic exist to give people like me a helping hand. In short, MiPic lets you use photos you’ve taken as the basis of a variety of products. You can upload photos either from your PC, or via the site’s iPhone app, and…

Blockchain-powered medical AI Skychain promises to beat IBM’s Watson Health


Since its creation, artificial intelligence (AI) has found use in many different industries, including healthcare. The amount of medical data is astronomically huge and the problem of systematizing, storing, and, above all, using such data is of the utmost importance. People have long hoped that someday, computers will make accurate diagnoses and eliminate medical errors. But no one has created an effective AI doctor yet.

Norwegians can warm up over Facebook’s Bonfire this Christmas


Facebook has quietly launched Bonfire — its video chatting app that bears more than a passing resemblance to Houseparty — in Norway. The launch was spotted by Boston-based app analytics firm, Apptopia. This makes it the second market it’s launched in, after Facebook started a soft beta of the app in Denmark. Adam Blacker, PR at Apptopia, said “While Denmark is a top three country in terms of soft launches, Norway is chosen less often. It’s possible Facebook strategically chose a market physically near Denmark to create a bigger network of engagement and see how that plays out.” According to…

What happens when you put a hackathon on a bus? An awesome podcast


It’s a bit of an unusual one. In all my time at TNW, I don’t think I’ve ever written a blog about a podcast I’ve been listening to, but hear me out. I’m a big fan of Gimlet Media’s StartUp podcast. This week, it’s been following StartupBus: a five-day hackathon on wheels, where coders build new companies while making their way from New York City to New Orleans. And yes, it’s my current podcast obsession. What struck me the most is that, as someone who has participated in several hackathons, everything sounded really familiar to me. Sure, the setting was…
