We always seek for more.
Who wouldn’t? We only have 24 hours in a day, why would I not maximize the way I use my time?
Makes sense right?
We try to over-optimize for everything. From the people we surround ourselves by, deadlines and getting work done, and even our meditation schedule.
Don’t get me wrong. I do all of these things.
But here’s a guy that may disagree.
Plato is arguably one of the MOST influential philosophers of all time, widely regarded with being one of the first methodical Western philosophers.
— Cause you know, he actually wrote stuff down. …
Socrates is often regarded as one of the most prominent philosophers of all time. Recognized for sharing his thoughts and beliefs in the pursuit of greater knowledge.
We all know the name. “Socrates”
But what did he really do?
Besides basically pioneering Western Philosophy *Pshhht no biggy
Socrates was recognized for his strong ability to identify wisdom through questioning (Socratic Method), His three Socratic Principles (pursuing life's purpose, caring for your soul, and being a good person) that fundamentally shifted the school of thought surrounding self-development, and his redefined unconventional look at happiness.
But you can’t forget his ugly face, stench (look it up, this man did not shower), and big nose. …
When you hear “Autonomous Vehicles” — what's the first thing you think of? Elon Musk and Tesla, John Krafcik and Waymo, how about Uber and their Toronto-based self-driving vehicle project.
With all the heavy media attention surrounding the current state of the technology, it's unlikely you HAVEN’T heard about the innovative tech. But you may not have all the information.
Let’s get something straight.
On a high-level — The goal behind Autonomous vehicles offer a promise of 75% fewer road fatalities, reducing vehicle emissions by up to 60%, and work positively towards tailoring traffic for reduced congestion.
These cars are amazing machines. …
I think its quite obvious that medical imaging totally changed the landscape of the healthcare space, creating an area for new forms of early detection, diagnosis, and treatment. This has worked to aid prevention and optimize patient care.
This technology is one that we heavily rely on. It gives us the ability to make informed decisions with patient care in mind. But can we make it better? 🤔
Current medical practices revolving around Brain Tumour diagnosis rely solely on the physician’s experience and knowledge, as well as their interpretation of MRI’s (Magnetic resonance imaging).
And yet we often see cases of misdiagnosed brain tumours that result in incorrect treatment, or worse, no treatment at all. …
What if I told you that today over One billion people — mostly concentrated in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia — live their daily lives without electricity. This acts as a fundamental barrier against limiting the untapped potential of the world’s population, impacting further development in areas of health, education, gender equality, food security, poverty reduction, etc.
Energy consumption levels are much lower in developing countries as compared to industrial countries, despite its heightened demand. Underdeveloped and developing countries account for 75 percent of the world’s population but consume only about 30 percent of total global energy.
Crazy right. We know. …
Although many may believe that… “The AI is going to take over! Steal all of our jobs and is going to replace all of us!”
Not going to sugar coat this. This may be true to a certain extent when discussing its implications within the medical space, there are still a large variety of ethical draw-backs that need to be considered fist.
“AI will probably most likely lead to the end of the world, but in the meantime, there’ll be great companies.” — Sam Altman
How about we make the most of our time, whilst we are still at the top of the food chain…
Imagine. Someone getting their hands on some of your most personal information, using it against you to steal your identity and commit instances of fraud. Stressful, right? What if there was a way to protect our most personal data with technology…let’s explore what that might look like…
DNA is a macromolecule that stores and transfers essential information about living beings, i.e. the genetic code. DNA is a carrier and transmitter of hereditary characteristics from skin colour and eye shape to specific diseases that were transferred from parents. …
Place surrounded by the people you love, and recognized as a safe place to express your true self, but what if this wasn’t the case. What if the understanding of “home” was nonexistent and replaced with senses of fear, distress, and anxiety.
This is the reality many families in third-world countries are faced with, resulting from poor/corrupt systems of government and their abuse of power towards citizens land ownership rights.
Implementing systems of Blockchain Technology to regulate the distribution of land ownership, especially in developing countries would create increased security in land owner’s rights, and would totally omit government corruption in changes of ownership regulations as information would now be immutable over the blockchain. …
Like many, my view on success was one that was dictated by school. I had always been told that following the education system is the only path to success and without it, you will be lost.
“School defines your future” — Repeated back to me like a broken record, echoed in my head for as long as I’ve been a part of the education system. I had found myself sucked into a vortex, my actions dictated by people telling me what’s right and wrong, what I should or should not be doing, what career path was “best” for me. …
“They risk their lives to realize a dream, and that dream is as simple as having a decent job somewhere so they can send money home and help the family, which has helped them before.”
Overseas transactions currently created fostered through pre-existing financial institutions constitute for over $570 Billion sent globally in 2016. Understanding the current state of the Global Remittance Industry would result in the embracement of faulty systems of international currency transactions working counter-intuitively creating problems regarding large amounts of intermediaries, increased remittance fees, and heavy transaction regulation policies.
Foreign reliance on the remittance industry sprouts from the ability to send money back to developing countries in support of family and loved ones. In addition to immigrants drastically lower income rates earned following uprooting to a first-world country, they also have to ensure poorly structured remittance processes which make international transactions even more difficult. …
