6 positive AI visions for the future of work

Current trends in AI are nothing if not remarkable.

Our concern here, though, is with something even more striking: the prospect of high-level machine intelligence systems that outperform human beings at essentially every task. This is not science fiction. In a recent survey the median estimate among…

For Rules in Technology, the Challenge is to Balance Code and Law

This article is part of our latest DealBook special report on the trends that will shape the coming decades.The first time the Harvard law professor Lawrence Lessig told computer scientists they were the unwitting regulators of the digital age — about 20 years ago — he made a coder cry. “I am not a politician. I’m a programmer,” Mr. Lessig recalls her protesting, horrified by the idea.Now, the notion that “code is law”— from Mr. Lessig’s 1999 book “Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace” — does not shock young engineers or lawyers, the professor says.

BTC365: Play-to-earn crypto platform featuring $10mil dividend pool

Trading cards, especially rare and old ones, have always been particularly valuable.

A look into what’s holding back Uniswap’s long-overdue rally

Whales might be key to XRP’s intended breach of $1.5

A month ago, when XRP’s price remained stagnant around the $1-mark, people from the space had started equating the crypto to a stablecoin. Post that episode, however, XRP registered a 42% spike on its chart over a 15-day period between 27 October and 10 November.
Micro-trends seldom remain consistent in the crypto-space. Keeping up with that tradition, XRP ended up dipping from its 2-month high level of $1.3, only to record a local low of $1.04 on 16 November.
