Book your flight to Dallas! Because the Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Blockchain Super Conference Kicks Off THIS Friday…

DALLAS, TX – This Friday, James Altucher, Tim Draper, John McAfee, Erik Voorhees, Charlie Shrem, and more than fifty of the most respected blockchain developers, entrepreneurs, and venture capitalists are coming together at Dallas to lift the lid on dozens of “secret projects” – and show the “Average Joe” investor how he can ride the next wave of the blockchain revolution in 2018.

 

The Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Blockchain Super Conference is the brainchild of Richard Jacobs, author of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Blockchain Super Conference, publisher of the Future Tech Podcast and former manager of the official Bitcoin.com podcast.

 

“2017 was a crazy year for Bitcoin. If you’d have invested $1,000 in January, by New Year’s Eve you’d have more than $1.3 million of free-and-clear wealth.”, says Mr. Jacobs. “However, what most folks don’t realize is that there are 13 cryptocurrencies that did even better than Bitcoin in 2017. And, as you’re going to see at the Super Conference, there are new emerging cryptocurrencies and blockchain assets that are poised to experience similar growth in 2018. Now is the time to get in!”

 

Tickets to the “main” Super Conference have completely sold out. However, Mr. Jacobs has secured a second venue and is deploying a “soft fork” for around 300 new ticketholders.

 

This is what “Soft Fork” attendees will get:

  • Live stream of the main conference – The second venue will be hooked up with state-of-the-art AV equipment, so attendees can take part in all of the keynote and other “main conference” talks while being able to interact with the speakers and ask questions.
  • Exclusive live (i.e. in-person) talks – Some of the keynote speakers have agreed to be shuttled across to the second venue, so that they can deliver a second exclusive talk to the “Soft Fork” attendees. Additionally, there will be some speakers who are only speaking at the second “Soft Fork” venue. (Details on this will be announced shortly – so subscribe to the Super Conference notification list.)
  • Complimentary audio and video recordings ($297 value) – “Soft Fork” attendees will receive a complimentary DVD/CD boxset after the event containing full audio and video recordings of every talk at both events, as well as the optional beginners educational track. (This special gift is reserved for “Soft Fork” ticket holders only. Regular tickets holders will need to pay for these recordings.)
  • More surprises (details to be announced) – Mr. Jacobs is putting together a few surprise bonuses for everyone who registers as a “Soft Fork” attendee.

 

IMPORTANT:

At last count, there were less than a few dozen “soft-fork” tickets still available. If you would like to come along to the Super Conference, it is highly recommended that you reserve your spot right now.

Getting Serious About AI: The Year of the Tipping Point

It’s time to cut through the confusion and get over the hype – approached in a pragmatic way, today’s AI will deliver value to your business, and at a manageable cost, say experts at Earley Information Science roundtable.

Too much of the buzz surrounding artificial intelligence is coming across as noise, confusing many companies about what to do with AI and when. Some are pushing mountains of chips into the pot, betting on complicated projects to solve difficult problems – and typically coming up short. Others are sitting nervously on their hands, not sure where to start but convinced that the entry fee is prohibitive.   

Somewhere in the middle lies the promise of 2018. In recognizing and discounting the hype surrounding AI, companies can become realistic about what it can do, now, to add value to their business. And in building on the platforms that have already been developed by the Googles, Facebooks and Apples of the world, they can avoid the expensive exercise of inventing a rickety new wheel.  

“To the extent that AI projects are more narrowly focused, they are more achievable and provide more tangible benefits,” said Seth Earley, Founder and CEO of Earley Information Science (EIS), a leading consulting firm focused on organizing information for business impact. “When AI is employed in realistic and practical ways, companies can begin to take the steps that will lead them to powerful new capabilities.”   

The steps that are available today – to manufacturers, retailers and service companies – were discussed by a panel of knowledge engineering experts at an Executive Roundtable hosted on Jan. 17 by EIS.

The discussion, “Enterprise Adoption of AI Technology: Looking Ahead to 2018,” was led by Seth Earley and included three EIS partners who work with clients on AI initiatives: Dino Eliopulos, Jeanna Giordano and Jeannine Bartlett, the firm’s Chief Digital Strategist. All three assessed the AI landscape at the start of the new year and identified opportunities to pursue in 2018.   

In looking back at 2017 from a B2B perspective, “my headline is around the value of AI for product management,” said Eliopulos. Every investment that’s made in improving the quality and structure of product data “is an investment that improves the performance of AI.” Even better, those investments turn into a two-way street: “AI can be used to improve and enrich your product information and to support the construction of relationships between products and other products.” 

Which gets you to 2018, he said, “the year in which information architecture and AI meet the Internet of Things – many companies are seeing that as the next level of engagement in their marketplace.” Consumers are looking for the value-added services that transcend the individual product and tap into the ecosystem that the product is part of, a connection that is largely fueled by AI. “We all want our Alexas and Pandoras.” And then there are the industrial applications. Fast-food restaurants, for example, “are instrumenting their cooking and refrigerant devices, and monitoring and building dashboards and benchmarks, restaurant to restaurant, to improve their power footprint.”  

On the consumer side, said Jeannine Bartlett, “the biggest sort of aha moment of 2017” was how fast voice-activated search went from being something of a novelty – Alexa, Siri or speaking to Google – to starting to have a major impact on everybody’s business.

In short, voice-activated search has become a real play in determining who is going to own the customer. Consumer adoption of “voice first engagement” will transform digital marketplace models in 2018, and retailers will scramble to secure a place in the “shopping conversation.” As market leaders invest more in smartphone-enabled conversational commerce and home device platforms, the outcome will likely turn on how well companies tie together “both product and service taxonomies,” either from their own cupboard or through “really tight” mergers and acquisitions (think Amazon and Whole Foods). “When product catalogs and service taxonomies get integrated with voice-activated search,” Bartlett said, “you wind up with some pretty powerful customer-journey scenarios.”  

As for the services sector, said Jeanna Giordano, three trends are worth noting. First, many companies are “starting to take a much more holistic view” of AI. Instead of focusing on the technology itself, they are looking “at how AI opportunities can be brought into play at various touch points and service interactions.” Second, they are recognizing that AI requires “a lot of good data and processes” and that “being really articulate about your knowledge, and having deep understanding of your own data, is critical” in dealing with AI vendors. And third is the possibility of developing new workplace models that view AI as a tool for “augmentation,” rather than just strict automation. “People can have richer opportunities by working in collaboration with some of these technologies,” Giordano said, and in using them to solve business problems.

In that respect, AI is no different from all the other tech advances that have come before it. Despite its powerful potential, it is not going to make the human factor redundant, said Seth Earley. “It’s not about replacement – it’s about putting tools in the hands of humans, and that’s the way it has always been: to improve people’s capabilities and effectiveness and reduce the cognitive load as they engage in whatever their work is.”   

The roundtable featured a real-time survey of the webinar attendees:  

  • Only 17% said that AI is now a crucial part of their offerings. A quarter are testing pilots or proof-of-concept projects, 42% are in “very early” stages, 10% said AI is just a glimmer in leadership’s eye and 6% said it is not even on the horizon.
  • In terms of the projects that are under consideration or being developed, more than a third, or 36%, identify patterns in data (“cognitive insights”), 22% involve chatbots, virtual assistants or product recommendations (“cognitive engagement”) and 11% revolve around robotic process automation (RPA), enabling rote or repeatable processes like data entry.  
  • More than a third, or 37%, said leadership understands AI and is realistic about what it can do, but 23% said their managers have unrealistic expectations, another 23% said they understand AI only on a rudimentary level and 13% said they don’t understand it at all.

The Earley Executive Roundtable is an educational webinar series focusing on topics of interest in the areas of digital transformation and information science. Each month, EIS leads a lively discussion with a panel of industry experts.

Prominent Canadian hotels set to install b4checkin’s revolutionary payment software solution

HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA – February 7, 2018 – b4checkin, Inc., a developer and provider of cloud-based hospitality software solutions, announced today that it is set to implement b4easypost, the industry’s first revolutionary online payment and posting software solution, at two prestigious Canadian hotel properties – One King West Hotel & Residences in Toronto, Ontario (http://www.onekingwest.com) and the Rimrock Resort Hotel in Banff, Alberta (http://www.rimrockresort.com).

b4easypost, developed by b4checkin, works to provide an online platform for guests and meeting planners to seamlessly make deposits and payments to a hotel, then automatically and securely posts those payments to the property management system (PMS). This eliminates the need for paper credit card authorization forms, which, aside from their inconvenience, are prone to human error and contrary to PCI compliance standards. Additionally, this end-to-end electronic solution significantly reduces credit card chargebacks to the hotel. By facilitating protected ecommerce transactions, there is also a significant cost reduction for hotels.

“In an age where hotel properties – or any company for that matter – are still dealing with paper-based credit card authorization forms or having to manually post transactions into their PMS and accounting systems, our software is the only fully integrated and PCI-compliant solution,” said Saar Fabrikant, President and CEO of b4checkin. “As guests now expect every form of payment to be available to them online with a safe and seamless presentation, there is no reason why all properties shouldn’t do their best to uphold strict data security standards without manual work. b4easypost gives hoteliers what they need to propel their businesses forward.”

The Rimrock and One King West – at 343 rooms and 355 rooms respectively – will join a diverse group of properties globally already benefiting from this unique solution. b4easypost represents the latest in a long line of products built by b4checkin to help hotels streamline operations and improve the guest experience, all while saving on the bottom line.

“We’re excited to have a payment solution that addresses our need for facilitating deposits that were previously done manually with paper based forms,” said Trevor Long, the General Manager at The Rimrock Resort Hotel. “Guests prefer to have everything be available online, for ease and clarity. b4easypost will bring us up-to-date with consumer trends and save us money in the process.”

Specific to these two properties, b4easypost will primarily help to quickly process online guest payments without the need for a reservations agent to manually process these transfers, thereby significantly reducing the manhours required to handle these tasks. Both of these contracted installations are a direct result of b4checkin’s completion of an Oracle Validated Integration of b4easypost with Oracle Hospitality OPERA, the world’s most widely used PMS.

“Besides its powerful online payment portal capabilities, what intrigues me most about b4easypost is how it will reshape our accounting processes,” said Andrea Parkinson, the Controller at One King West Hotel & Residences. “By getting rid of those annoying paper credit card authorization forms, the posting process is faster and we won’t be bogged down by chargeback disputes. And then there are the fantastic savings associated with that including labor reductions, lowered transaction fees and almost no printing costs. I wish had this platform years ago!”

About b4checkin

b4checkin™ develops and provides an innovative suite of cloud-based software solutions for the hospitality industry. Designed to help hotels better manage online reservations and measure guest satisfaction, core products include: chameleon, the industry’s first online booking engine with multiple design options; b4feedback, a state-of-the-art guest satisfaction tracking and management tool; b4arrival, an online check-in system that maximizes convenience for mobile-friendly guests; b4easypost, a fully automated payment and posting solution; b4GDS, a GDS interface for properties offering a ‘one-stop-shop’ for hoteliers; b4golf, a golf tee time reservation solution; b4spa, a spa appointment booking solution; and b4ubet, an application that allows hotel casino players to book their hotel offers online. b4checkin is headquartered in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, with installations serving customers in North America, the Caribbean, Asia and Europe.

Josefin Nilsson Taps her Swedish Roots for Upcoming Film Drama ‘Girl Games’

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Acclaimed actress Josefin Nilsson has joined the cast in the upcoming dramedy “Girl Games,” a tale of passion and betrayal in Hollywood.

“I am extremely grateful to be a part of this amazing production,” she said. 

The film, written and directed by renowned director Sean Patrick Cannon (“American High School”), tells the story of a beloved Hollywood star who faces the worst PR nightmare possible – he is blacklisted. The women in his life now stand in the way of his quest toward redemption, settling down, or leaving an industry he loves – an industry that now hates him. The film is being co-produced by Solomon Productions, which produced the four-time award-winning film “The Code of Cain,” starring Eric Roberts.

“I will be playing the leading role of Diana Moore, the love interest to Nick Shakoor (‘Hawaii Five-O’ ‘State of Affairs’). It is the type of character that I usually go out for, but the role will challenge me to dig deep into all of Diana´s different layers. She might not be the person people think when they first meet her.”

Audiences across the globe will recognize Swedish bombshell Josefin Nilsson for her featured roles in major music videos such as ”Perfect Pint”- Kendrick Lamar, ”Grass ain’t Greener”- Chris Brown and ”Tone it Down”- Gucci Mane, but her skills as an actress extends far beyond simply playing a music video heroine. Nilsson has been in demand for an impressive list of roles in several major film productions. Her most recent ventures include her leading role in the Netflix hit series “Corrupt Crimes” starring Cornell Womack – known for his roles in the Oscar-Nominated Film “Revenge of The Fallen” and Five-Time Award Winning Film “The Happening”, Alliance/A New Era’s film “Voices” which has recently been nominated for “Best Drama” at the CCH Film Festival, as well as her leading role as Cara Fox in the horror film ”Darkest Decision”, Officially Selected at the Northern Frights Festival.

Before making her way to Hollywood several years ago, Nilsson took to the screen in Sweden where she took on numerous critical roles in high profile productions.

“My mom took me to my first audition in the capital city of Sweden. I think I was 9 years old at the time,” she recalled. “I was actually brought in for a part with my sister because they were looking for two real sisters, but I remember that we were really nervous and really bad”, Nilsson says laughing. “But a year later I had better luck when I got cast in the family romance film ‘Eve & Adam: Four Birthdays & a Fiasco”, directed by two-time Guldbagge Award winner Catti Edfeldt. That movie led Nilsson to several other projects such as the International Emmy Award nominated series “Laura Trenter- Fire!”  and the dramatic thriller series “Medicinmannen.”

Meanwhile, Nilsson is looking forward to “Girl Games” and her other upcoming projects she continues to rise in the entertainment industry. “I never believed in having a B-plan. I always went all in for what I felt my heart wanted. Of course I knew it would be a challenge to go from a farm on the country side of Sweden to the big screen in Hollywood, but I never doubted that it would all be worth it one day.”

Already, the former ballet dancer is set to work on the film comedy “7 Days as a Kingpin,” from writer/director Paul Bunch (“Hit and Run”) starring Award Winning Daveigh Chase (“Big Love”), as well as the upcoming psychological thriller “Christmas Eve”, starring Elizabeth Gillies (“Victorious”), which will go into pre-production next year.

ECigIntelligence analysts inject a note of caution into the heated-tobacco hype

  • Even without FDA approval of reduced-risk claims, ECigIntelligence analysts predict IQOS will do well in US
  • But success seen in Japanese market will be difficult to replicate

 

Heated tobacco will play an important role in the future of the US tobacco alternatives market no matter what the FDA eventually decides, analysts at ECigIntelligence believe.

We predict that heated tobacco products will be successful in the US market whether or not Philip Morris International (PMI) is successful in its application to use reduced risk health claims when marketing its IQOS product.

We note that although several claims were rejected, one of the company’s health claims was approved by the agency’s Tobacco Products Scientific Advisory Committee (TPSAC) – a fact overlooked in many reports on the matter and a significant positive in itself.

And if the FDA follows the panel’s recommendation on that, IQOS would be able to make some form of reduced risk claim based on last week’s decisions.

However, our analysts urge some caution.

The potential smoker conversion numbers for IQOS have excited investors for many months.

There has been speculation that a successful application could see heated tobacco overtake vapor e-cigarettes as the number one alternative tobacco product. But we believe that may be a step too far.

And we note that it may not be possible to replicate the success IQOS has enjoyed in Japan in other markets.

Barnaby Page, ECigIntelligence Editorial Director, said: “We expect heated tobacco may well have a strong role to play in the market, but those enthused by its commercial potential should consider all the issues.

“Undoubtedly it has plenty of positives for both the consumer and the industry, but exactly how it will co-exist with both conventional cigarettes and e-cigarettes remains open to question.”

 

Limited awareness

 

Research conducted by ECigIntelligence has shown little awareness of heated tobacco among e-cigarette users. 75% of French vapers had not even heard of heated-tobacco products.

There is also a degree of outside uncertainty. Regulation and studies into the health impact of heated tobacco are ongoing. Negative indications from either could restrict the market.

And there is no guarantee the products would replicate the accomplishments seen in markets such as Japan.

Japan remains an unusual market almost ideal for heated tobacco. It has:

  • A very small e-cig market due to nicotine restrictions
  • Low restrictions on tobacco advertising
  • Very high population density, making branded stores in urban centres a practical proposition
  • High disposable income levels, interest in technology and preference for light or menthol cigarettes among consumers.

Page added: “Even without reduced-risk approval, IQOS can succeed in the US – though it may never equal the performance seen in Japan.”

Filmmaker Sonali Sundararaj Set to Produce ‘Music Therapy’

LOS ANGELES, Calif. –  Acclaimed Filmmaker Sonali Sundararaj is set to produce the upcoming film drama “Music Therapy.”

The short film tells the story of Ana who leaves her home in Russia to move to America so she could give her brother and mother a better life but after she arrives, she realizes that life is not easy at all in her new country. The film stars Lauren Bruniges (“Timon’s Friendship Adventure”), Marina Hova (“Blue Hope”), and newcomers Pedro Penteado, Mengyu Dong and Mohamed Al Badry. The film is set for release later this year.

“This film is very personal. Having moved to a city where various cultures intersect, I was constantly reminded of the spectrum of challenges faced by people who moved from other countries and the similarities of our experiences,” Sundararaj said.  “I think a lot of people will relate to this film because most of us share the experience of moving away from home.”

Sundararaj sees the film’s theme as acceptance and taking a first step toward change. She believes that no matter what the struggle is, the only way to overcome it is to accept it and push forward instead of living in grief and bitterness.

The positive message is in keeping with the filmmaker’s ability to persevere and remain positive despite challenges. Having grown up in Chennai, India, Sundararaj had a fascination for films and sports, often dividing her time between the two. Despite her petite frame, she would become a top sprinter at her high school and college.

Although her hopes of someday going to the Olympics were dashed when she suffered a severe knee injury. But she would ultimately earn a degree in Computer Science at Women’s Christian College in Chennai before going on to earn a Masters in Communications so she could seek out a career in film and television upon graduation.

“It’s like a rite of passage to get a degree in Computer Science in India, but I knew it was not my calling,” she recalled. “After successfully producing shows for Indian TV for 2 years, I wanted to broaden my horizons and learn more about the American film industry.”

Upon arriving in the U.S., Sundararaj attended UCLA Extension to familiarize herself further with the American film and TV industry, then going on to write, direct and produce several short films. Today, the young filmmaker is the associate producer on the upcoming science fiction film “2.0” with Amy Jackson of “Supergirl.”

Sundararaj’s past work includes such films as the thriller “Divulgence,” “Greasy Monkey,” the acclaimed YouTube series “Sigma,” FX’s acclaimed series “American Crime Story” and many others.

“We live in a time with multiple avenues for entertainment and I certainly want to explore all of them,” she said. “Apart from the film and TV projects, I am also producing a VR project and working on producing some music video content and other projects. But I am blessed to have found some amazing friends and I have some family here as well who have been a tremendous support.”

Author & Founder of Kanekt 365 Releases New eBook About How to Up the Ante on Productivity

A new book gives five keys sure to increase staff productivity for business owners with far too much to do.

 

Plymouth, NH – February 2, 2018 - Who doesn’t want to build their brand, generate leads, and effectively cut costs while they grow their business? Sounds like a juggling act.  But the authors of a new book entitled, “5 Ways to Increase Productivity in the Workplace: Achieving Extraordinary Productivity” say it doesn’t have to be.  With strategies for business basics like helpful customer service calls, tech support, order processing, and appointment setting that results in lead generation, author Jeffrey Morin takes a pointed approach.  Co-written with Melissa Rudy, the ebook is now offered on Amazon Kindle for $9.99. 

 

The book starts with exploring employee incentives and moves to the importance of empowering offsite teams.  For instance, the authors say the answering service of the past is now the contact center hub for booming businesses in the U.S.  It appears the digital age mantra is all about multi-tasking.  And, fortunately, gaining help for ample productivity that builds brands is the gettable get.

 

“There are steps companies can take internally with their workforce and processes, but when a business looks beyond their own walls, they find that the opportunities for growth are endless, inexpensive and easy to access,” says Morin, also the founder of Kanekt 365. “It comes down to partnering with the right firm.”

 

Among other helpful points, 5 Ways to Increase Productivity in the Workplace says business owners can grow their businesses, for less than $14 an hour, by employing offsite staff.  This way, the productivity book says, business owners can cut HR costs, get calls answered, follow up on emails and texts, all while they get their social media managed.  Inbound calls, as well as outbound calls, can now filter through a system that enhances the overall vision of a company to increase profits and brand recognition.

 

“Over and over we see that a 24/7, 365 days-a-year call center and online chat support system poised to meet customer needs is a requisite advantage,” adds Morin.

 

With adept information to enhance teamwork as well, the book shares the importance of training, the dangers of micromanaging, and the ins and outs of gamification.  By helping to build a community that strives to meet goals together, the book also underscores rewards for success, status badges, and the encouragement of healthy competition.  To that end, 5 Ways to Improve Productivity in the Workplace engages the central commonality for all effective businesses – onsite and offsite teams empowered to succeed.
