The concept behind Artificial Intelligence or Machine Learning is that computer programmes or software should be as smart as human beings and be able to execute tasks independently. It is an endeavour by human beings to leverage the fact that machines or algorithms do not have emotions or get tired, and that they should be able to perform tasks in a faster and more efficient manner than human beings.

Therefore, the entire aim of machine learning can be summarized as automation. …

China’s influence on global economics remains one of the most historical and significant ones you could ever think of. Asides from being the first to introduce a paper currency, the Chinese banking system is presently the largest banking system in the world. As if that is not enough, despite the resistance of the Chinese government, China used to be the hub of Bitcoin mining. The heavy involvement of the Chinese in Bitcoin can be a bit counter-intuitive when you consider they pioneered paper currency and have some of the world’s leading payment channels or institutions like WeChat, TenPay and Alipay.

It's always cool to talk about sophisticated and progressive technologies and how they can revolutionize the world. However, the influence of human beings remains a major difficulty in achieving perfection in tech. Whenever technology has to be deployed to solve real-life and practical problems, it becomes a passive asset because, despite its intrinsic capabilities, it will always depend on how best it is utilized by people and to what extent it is manipulated either for good or for bad.

Hence, efforts are always made to reduce the friction in using tech products by ensuring as much automation as possible to…

Bitcoin might be going through one of its biggest market challenges so far, but it remains one of the most significant innovations in modern tech. The cryptocurrency was the first digital currency to shake the world and revolutionize how we think about the internet and technology. Firstly, Bitcoin changed how we thought about money and currencies, secondly, it began to influence how we perceive data and privacy, and now, cryptocurrency is already influencing our philosophical and ideological outlook of life.

Bitcoin will always remain a game-changer and will forever be a reference point when discussing groundbreaking technological solutions. It is…

The demand for more inclusive structures keeps increasing. Many of us are beginning to see the need for communities and social inclusion. The argument as to whether the internet is bringing us together or pulling us apart will always be one that may never end. However, because we live in a digital age, the internet has been at the centre of this recent shift and demand for globalization and sustainable communities.

The trendy words in the corporate and tech world are: “Democratising”, “decentralization”, “financial inclusion” and “Community”. It is obvious that, to even get the attention of people these days…

The importance of data in modern tech can hardly be over-emphasized; because there are so many services and products, there have become so many reasons and channels for collecting user or enterprise data. Companies leverage data to improve the user experience of customers, while in-house, there is a need for effective data accumulation for record-keeping and effective operations. As we clamour and advocate for more frictionless operations in our businesses and everyday activities, we simultaneously create a channel for more data to be collected and used in order to automate processes.

In fact, the entire reason why we say companies…

I don’t think anyone familiar with TV or video games, would not be familiar with the word “Alien”. Aliens have become common features in action-packed movies or video games. These movie franchises and entertainment platforms usually adopt the common storyline of humans trying to fight off big, strong, ‘bad’, ‘evil’ or flesh-eating creatures who are from another planet and plan to take over the world. The protagonists in the movie or video game character have to save the world or stay alive by killing the aliens or by sending them back to their planets. In a few cases, the aliens…

Technology can be argued to be as old as man itself; various inventions like electricity, steam engines, railways, etc., have all changed the existence of man and how we view the world. However, most of these innovations have now become more of infrastructures with most governments now regulating and owning these spaces. The more recent definition of technology is one that is mostly borne from the invention of the world wide web in 1989. The internet remains one of the most important innovations of mankind and a springboard for most of the massive strides made by man in recent times…

When the worldwide web was invented in 1989, it ushered in a new way of looking at the world; various types of internet solutions and technology companies began to spring up. The web became the most talked-about infrastructure of modern times as man continued to find more ways to create and share value.

The beauty of the web is that it is not just a solution or digital product, but it was invented as an infrastructure for other internet related solutions to be built upon, and it hasn’t really failed in that regards as we have seen the rise of…
