Life sciences group the Pistoia Alliance has released a comprehensive survey gauging life-science professionals' views on the implementation of artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain technology in the life sciences. The findings indicate a high level of interest in AI among respondents, with 57% currently engaging in computational drug repurposing. Also, the findings revealed that awareness of blockchain has increased; 89% now are cognizant of the technology, compared to 82% just three years ago. However, even considering this increase, the survey indicates lack of access to people with relevant blockchain skills remains the biggest barrier to widespread adoption (selected by 30%). Pistoia Alliance consultant Dr. Becky Upton discussed the survey with Outsourcing-Pharma, and how companies might overcome blockchain barriers.
The blockchain gaming world is largely populated by startups built specifically to pioneer the burgeoning industry of crypto games, whether it's Immutable with card-battler Gods Unchained, Sorare with its popular fantasy soccer platform, or Sky Mavis behind the Pokémon-inspired Axie Infinity. However, there is one very big exception: Ubisoft, one of the largest traditional game publishers in the world, and the storied brand behind mega-franchises like Assassin's Creed, Far Cry, Just Dance, and various Tom Clancy-branded shooters. The gaming giant, which has dozens of international studios, first signaled its interest in blockchain technology by unveiling a proof-of-concept prototype called HashCraft, a crypto-infused riff on Minecraft, in 2019. Ubisoft has since continued on in the space by working closely with crypto gaming startups and releasing its own small-scale experiments. The publisher's blockchain ambitions come from its Strategic Innovation Lab, which is headed up by Nicolas Pouard, Blockchain Initiative Director.
Recently public unicorn Upstart announced earnings that blew the socks off of Wall Street this week. After closing on Wednesday at around $61 per share, Upstart wrapped Thursday worth $115 per share. It turns out that all the blather we've had to endure about artificial intelligence (AI) in the past decade is coming true, at least in certain applications for select companies. But Upstart's blockbuster guidance for 2021 is just a sliver of the story. The AI-powered fintech is projecting a year so good that its valuation nearly doubled yesterday, but there are other shoots of life in the AI world worth discussing, and investors are taking note.
Most American retail banks are designed the same way: Customers must pass several desks set aside for loan and mortgage officers before they can talk to a customer representative. I only step inside a bank a few times each year, but even pre-pandemic, I can't remember the last time I saw someone sitting at one of those desks. Everyone I know who's obtained a home or business loan in the recent past started with an online application process. For this morning's column, Alex Wilhelm interviewed Dave Girouard, CEO of Upstart, an AI-powered fintech lender that expects to see growth increase 114% this year. A forecast like that suggests that retail banks have gotten comfortable with using automated tools to calculate risk, which may help explain all the empty desks at my local branch.
