Facial Recognition Is Already Here: These Are The 30+ US Companies Testing The Technology via @CBInsights | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

US corporates are currently using facial recognition for everything from fast food orders to trying on makeup to issuing life insurance policies, and more.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTER: facial recognition used to be a very difficult thing to do but AI and machine learning specifically has blown this out the water opening the way for a slew of real world useful applications.

You’re surrounded by disruption and rapid change. Maybe you’re looking for solutions. A way to seize opportunities. We all are. It’s a sprint to stay ahead of technology. Blockchain. Automation. AI. Cybersecurity. It will forever change the way accounting is done. And forever change those who do it. It’s time to reset, redefine and reskill. The way we learn. The way we work. And the way we move forward. Here, you’ll find what you need to not just survive, but adapt and thrive. And disrupt disruption.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: I've been blogging about digital disruption since Jan 2013, and doing it since the early days of Internet in 1995. It is refreshing to see it being picked up by non technology professionals. Maybe a sign of the times that this thing is starting to really impact people, businesses and whole industries...?

The secret Swiss mountain bunker where millionaires stash their #bitcoins

The secret Swiss mountain bunker where millionaires stash their #bitcoins | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Kon is taking me to see one of the vaults where Xapo, the company he works for, stores its customers’ bitcoins. It’s no ordinary vault: I’ve been told it’s inside a decommissioned Swiss military bunker dug into a granite mountain. Its precise location is secret, and access is limited by security measures that would put a Bond villain to shame.
A bitcoin vault doesn’t store actual bitcoin units. Technically, what’s being stored are private, cryptographic keys. These keys form a pair with particular, public-facing, keys and provide access to the balance of coins stored on the bitcoin network. Gaining unauthorized access to someone’s private keys is akin to making off with a gold bar.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: Looks like physical security may still be required in an age of digital everything.
