FOREX INVESTORS PRESS RELEASE   Global Cannabis Applications Corp. (“GCAC” or the “Company”) (CSE:APP, FWB:2FA, OTCQB:FUAPF), a leading developer of innovative smartphone applications for the cannabis industry, announces it has entered into discussions with respect to medical cannabis technology applications including Artificial Intelligence (“AI”), data scraping and Blockchain delivery with a leading Australian technology accelerator and aggregator, Fintechgration.

In September 2017, GCAC intends to commence trials on a proprietary AI regulatory monitoring platform to manage international ISO standards for medical cannabis.  The data collected from this technology is anticipated to augment the existing data pool used within GCAC’s Citizen Green App suite and proprietary ‘Pain to Strain’ database.

AI compliance technology proposes to help deliver a near bullet proof auditing system for regulatory compliance across global jurisdictions, and may have immediate application to ‘Schedule 8’ medical cannabis regulation in countries such as Australia.

Blockchain is a disruptive, secure, digital “distributed ledger” that is being heralded as a significant innovation that could have far reaching implications in health and financial industries.  The technology may be used to collect data from and improve medical cannabis supply chains.

These cutting-edge technologies coupled with Citizens Green’s “Pain to Strain’ database (built from over 10 years of field research tracking medicinal cannabis users seeking therapeutic remedies for multiple conditions including cancer and epilepsy), have the potential to generate significant improvements on data insights for ongoing clinical trials in the medical cannabis arena.

“This is an exciting new frontier.  GCAC eagerly anticipates exploring AI along with the application of Blockchain technology fed by dynamic social media to provide the basis for curating authoritative data for medical practitioners, researchers, providers and growers,” says Jason Webb, Managing Director of GCAC, Australia.

GCAC’s business is focused on ‘big data’, which will be aggregated through various technologies enabling users, patients, doctors, pharmacists, providers and practitioners to more easily identify key strains of cannabis that have the greatest benefit to targeted ailments for personal well being.

States GCAC CEO, Brad Moore, “Our innovative approach to technology in the medical cannabis space alongside the rich data experience derived from our Citizen Green Apps will build the foundational blocks for understanding and participating in the growing world of medical cannabis.”

BUZ INVESTORS  PRESS RELEASE   Compcoin Announces   Compcoin, the digital coin catering to investors and forex traders, today announced terms for its upcoming Initial Coin Offering (ICO), which is scheduled for June 14, 2017. The company hopes to raise up to $45 million, which will go toward the development of new investor technologies, customer acquisition and company growth.

Compcoin is a new digital token focused on investing and growing capital. Investors may buy and hold Compcoin to leverage it as an alternative investment vehicle. However, the primary function of Compcoin is to grant investors access to ART – a proprietary, automated, algorithmic trading platform developed by its parent company, the Fintech Investment Group.

“Compcoin is the first digital coin that grants investors access the world of algorithmic trading in the $5 trillion per day foreign currency market. Previously, such technology had only been available to elite investors, hedge fund managers, large insurers, pension funds and global banks,”

Said Alan Friedland, founder of Fintech Investment Group and Compcoin.

“After eight years of testing, which resulted in highly successful predictions and high returns, we believe Compcoin is ready to generate profits for forex traders on the open market. By making our proprietary trading technology available to everyday investors, Compcoin is leveling the investor playing field and giving owners a real opportunity to experience success in this highly desirable asset class.”




Compcoin Announces

As part of its ICO, Compcoin will be offering 3 million coins at a price of $15 USD each. The first 700,000 coins will receive a 20% bonus. Further details on the bonus program can be found in the offer memorandum released today at www.compcoin.com. Investors can reserve their coins to the ICO by contacting Compcoin at 888-377-COIN (2646). If all 3 million coins are reserved prior to the ICO date, the coins will be issued on an exchange or exchanges within two to three business days after the ICO.

As of today, more than 4.6 million Compcoins have been minted since its introduction in 2014 – an average of 35 new coins every 10 minutes. The maximum number of Compcoin that will be minted is 10 million, or however many coins have been mined by the end of January 2020 — whichever milestone is reached sooner. A percentage of coins will be available for miners.

The more Compcoin an investor owns, the more money the investor can leverage for forex trades with ART. Since the supply of Compcoin will be limited, this demand will increase the value of Compcoin for long-term investors, forex traders and speculators on the open market.

Investors who are interested in learning more about Compcoin are invited to review the company’s offer memorandum. Highlights from the offer memorandum include:

  • Purchasing Compcoin only provides access to ART. Compcoin owners looking to execute forex trades via ART must set up and fund an account with the brokerage of their choice, and then link it to ART. At this time, Compcoin may not be used to fund forex trades.
  • The ability for Compcoin to store value, and potentially increase in value, off-sets any traditional account management fees that retail forex traders would have normally paid to execute trades. Instead of paying fees to a third party, Compcoin investors can use those dollars to purchase a digital asset that can be traded or sold for a potential profit at a later date.
  • Compcoin are transferable and divisible, and exhaust when used to activate the ART trading technology at a rate of 0.5% each quarter. Once a coin is exhausted, it may no longer be used or traded and new Compcoin must be acquired.

New program for AI entrepreneurs will launch in February with financial support and mentorship from leading Canadian companies

NEXT Canada

BUX INVESTORS  PRESS RELEASE  Build Canada’s AI Ecosystem  Today NextAI announced major partnerships with several leading Canadian companies to help fund and support the program and its participants. NextAIis a global innovation program for artificial intelligence-related ventures, and talented teams from around the world are invited to Canada to leverage the nation’s leadership in AI and are provided with capital, mentorship, education and networking opportunities. The concept for NextAI was born out of an innovation brainstorming session sponsored by RBC and Magna during the summer of 2016, and joining RBC and Magna as founding corporate partners are BDC Capital and Scotiabank. To date, the funding provided by all corporate partners totals $5.15 million.




Build Canada’s AI Ecosystem

 

NextAI has also formed technology partnerships with IBM Canada, Google and NVIDIA, who have committed millions in hardware, access to technology, and services. They will provide program participants with funding, corporate mentorship, and access to industry experts, customer trials and valuable data sets.

“Artificial Intelligence is one of the most transformational technologies impacting business today, and Canada must remain at the forefront of exploring its commercial and scientific opportunities,” said Dave McKay, President and CEO of RBC. “NEXT Canada has a proven track record of helping foster entrepreneurship in Canada, and by partnering on NextAI we’ll help entrepreneurs from around the world develop their next AI ventures here in Canada.”

The program is the first of its kind in Canada, and will bring global AI talent and entrepreneurs to Toronto, where they’ll work with corporate, academic and technology partners to create commercially-viable AI ventures. NextAI aims to solidify Canada’s reputation as a global leader in innovation, reversing the brain drain of top innovators and scientists out of the country, and to establish centres of excellence in the commercial application of AI. Since launching recruitment in late October applications have come in from over 20 countries including Ecuador, Germany India, Israel, Italy, Mexico and Scotland. Almost 10% of applications came from the United States.

“Artificial intelligence and machine learning are areas where Canadian talent can truly shine and become a game changer,” said Jérôme Nycz, Executive Vice President at BDC Capital.  “Through this partnership, we have a collective opportunity to support AI ventures from the most incipient stages of operation all the way through scaling. We look forward to working with NextAI to identify and fund the most promising companies in their cohorts and give founders tangible means to transform industries and global markets.”

The program will supply participants with up to $200,000 in funding, access to state-of-the-art technology, mentorship from business leaders and scientists as well as education from some of the top academics working in the field from schools including Harvard, MIT, NYU, the University of Guelph and the University of Toronto.

“Innovation has always been at the root of what we do,” said Don Walker, CEO of Magna. “It is clear that technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning will have a huge impact on future mobility and society at large. By supporting initiatives like NextAI, Magna has the opportunity to help create a preeminent AI ecosystem which will ignite a new wave of opportunity for the Canadian industry, society, and entrepreneurs.”

NEXT Canada has launched a number of successful programs in the past, establishing itself as a leader in the development of high impact entrepreneurs. The organization is supported by over 300 business leaders and currently led by board co-chairs, Globalive founder Anthony Lacavera and McKinsey and Company partner John Kelleher.

This is NEXT Canada’s third program devoted to helping high potential entrepreneurs succeed, and hundreds of entrepreneurs to date have participated in The Next 36 and Next Founders. NEXT Canada counts several AI and machine learning companies among its alumni, including Blue J Legal and Atomwise.

“NextAI, like the programs before it, is devoted to fostering entrepreneurship in Canada, and creating a space for global talent to realize their potential with the help of key partners and mentors,” said Andrea Matheson, President of NEXT Canada. “We’re thrilled to bring on the partners who are leaders in their respective fields and who will provide the program participants with invaluable knowledge and leadership.”

“Artificial intelligence is creating game-changing solutions in financial services, from client service to fraud prevention to risk management, that will enhance the customer experience and create new ways of banking,” said Michael Zerbs, EVP & Co-Head, Information Technology, Enterprise Technology, Scotiabank. “It’s critical that we invest in those who are driving the rising AI economy in Canada. Through our support of NextAI, Scotiabank is committed to connecting entrepreneurs with opportunities to cement Canada’s position as global leaders in AI.”

For instance, optical character recognition is no longer perceived as an example of “artificial intelligence”, having become a routine technology.Capabilities currently classified as AI include successfully understanding human speech,[4] competing at a high level in strategic game systems (such as Chess and Go), self-driving cars, intelligent routing in content delivery networks, and interpreting complex data.

The integration of Salesforce and IBM AI technology will help customers in a number of ways. For example, a retailer could automatically send highly personalized and localized e-mail campaigns to shoppers by combining local shopping patterns, weather, and retail industry data from Watson with the customer-specific shopping data and preferences from Einstein.

As part of this agreement, IBM will deploy Salesforce’s “Service Cloud” across the company to transform its global product support services. The integration of IBM Watson with Einstein is expected to be available in the second half of 2017.

The name is self-explanatory. Nonetheless, Watson identified ransomware as a city. Yes, like New York or London. This blunder could have been embarrassing, except that Watson has now evolved faster than most analysts would have expected.

Since then, it has obviously performed far better on IBM’s tests, or else the company would not introduce it to its clients’ IT infrastructure. By letting Watson sift through real files used by IBM’s clients, the company hopes to sharpen its distinction between regular business and a threat.

The idea is to make Watson an invaluable tool for cybersecurity experts. Rather than replacing those people, IBM just wants to make them more effective by supplying a tool that can spot cyberattacks before—or as—they are happening.
