Magna Carta Scientiae


Science is a catalyst for human progress. But a publishing monopoly and funding monopsony have inhibited research. We intend to improve incentives in science by developing smart research contracts. These will collectively reward scientific activities, including proposals, papers, replications, datasets, analyses, annotations, editorials, and more. Peer-to-peer review networks will be designed to help evaluate proposals and publications. Long term, these smart contracts help accelerate research by minimizing science friction, ensuring science quality, and maximizing science variance. Papers are the fundamental asset of the research economy: they serve as proof of work that valuable research has been completed. Funding agencies and research institutions evaluate scientists based on their publications. Principal investigators (PIs) attract prospective students and collaborators via papers. Investors and companies use scientific literature to conduct due diligence on research ranging from basic discoveries to clinical studies. Thus, the evaluation and dissemination of papers are vital to this research economy. Publishers are the sole arbiters of papers today. They assign a value -- denominated in "prestige" -- by accepting a paper into the appropriate journal based on selectivity and domain. To evaluate papers, journals typically outsource it to two or three PIs, who often outsource it further to their students. Reviewers are unpaid for this peer review work, as it is an expected part of their scientific duties. Peer review is believed to be necessary because of the industrialization of science. Research papers and proposals have become too specialized and too numerous, making it difficult to assess merit prima facie. As a result, scientific incentives have become distorted in two major ways: prestige capture and reviewer misalignment. Over half of all research papers in 2013 were published by five companies, who have used their centuries of brand equity to build an economic moat. This results in prestige capture, which akin to regulatory capture, causes public and scientific interest to be directed towards the regulators of prestige. Publishers have exploited prestige capture to become the ultimate rent-seekers, with operating margins between 25-40% and market capitalizations up to $50B.

Why artificial intelligence still needs a human touch - California News Times


This article is an on-site version of the #fintechFT newsletter. Using artificial intelligence to improve fraud detection is becoming one of the hottest trends in the insurance industry, but it is also one of the most controversial trends. US insurer Lemonade has become a case study of potential technology rewards and reputational risks. Lemonade has become one of the most successful large-scale IPOs in 2020, fulfilling its promise to speed up and simplify lessor insurance and home insurance with AI-powered apps. But earlier this year, it sparked a social media backlash in concerns about the behavior of the algorithm.

A Decision Model for Decentralized Autonomous Organization Platform Selection: Three Industry Case Studies Artificial Intelligence

Decentralized autonomous organizations as a new form of online governance arecollections of smart contracts deployed on a blockchain platform that intercede groupsof people. A growing number of Decentralized Autonomous Organization Platforms,such as Aragon and Colony, have been introduced in the market to facilitate thedevelopment process of such organizations. Selecting the best fitting platform ischallenging for the organizations, as a significant number of decision criteria, such aspopularity, developer availability, governance issues, and consistent documentation ofsuch platforms, should be considered. Additionally, decision-makers at theorganizations are not experts in every domain, so they must continuously acquirevolatile knowledge regarding such platforms and keep themselves updated.Accordingly, a decision model is required to analyze the decision criteria usingsystematic identification and evaluation of potential alternative solutions for adevelopment project. We have developed a theoretical framework to assist softwareengineers with a set of Multi-Criteria Decision-Making problems in software production.This study presents a decision model as a Multi-Criteria Decision-Making problem forthe decentralized autonomous organization platform selection problem. Weconducted three industry case studies in the context of three decentralizedautonomous organizations to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of the decisionmodel in assisting decision-makers.

As per IDC, about 80% of global data will be unstructured by 2025. And this will be the pattern across the industries like retail, technology, healthcare, and anything you name it.

Satoshi Nakamoto = Rogue AI ?


Artificial intelligence was founded as an academic discipline in 1956, and in the years since has experienced several waves of optimism, followed by disappointment and the loss of funding (known as "AI winter"), followed by new approaches, success, and renewed funding. For most of its history, AI research has been divided into subfields that often fail to communicate with each other. These sub-fields are based on technical considerations, such as particular goals (e.g. In the twenty-first century, AI techniques have experienced a resurgence following concurrent advances in computer power, large amounts of data, and theoretical understanding; and AI techniques have become an essential part of the technology industry, helping to solve many challenging problems in computer science. Would that be possible that the reason that Bitcoin Code is written so perfect is the fact that the code wasn't created by a single extremely skilled developer or even a team of highly skilled developers?

The 20 technologies that defined the first 20 years of the 21st Century

The Independent - Tech

The early 2000s were not a good time for technology. After entering the new millennium amid the impotent panic of the Y2K bug, it wasn't long before the Dotcom Bubble was bursting all the hopes of a new internet-based era. Fortunately the recovery was swift and within a few years brand new technologies were emerging that would transform culture, politics and the economy. They have brought with them new ways of connecting, consuming and getting around, while also raising fresh Doomsday concerns. As we enter a new decade of the 21st Century, we've rounded up the best and worst of the technologies that have taken us here, while offering some clue of where we might be going. There was nothing much really new about the iPhone: there had been phones before, there had been computers before, there had been phones combined into computers before. There was also a lot that wasn't good about it: it was slow, its internet connection barely functioned, and it would be two years before it could even take a video.

How does ModiHost's Pool Lending work


In times of negative interest rates, investors are looking to get out of cash and move to assets that generate returns. Staking could be the answer. Many exchanges provide opportunities to stake tokens and in exchange earn rewards. One can safely earn 5% per annum on a popular digital asset such as ETH. At Modihost we have developed a similar mechanism to staking that rewards buying and holding of AIM tokens.

American 'woke' companies blamed for fueling China's rise, Paypal co-founder says

FOX News

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel and former National Security advisor Robert C. O'Brien weigh in on facing the Chinese Communist Party Paypal co-founder and Facebook board member Peter Thiel spared no punches in who he cites for helping China's rapid economic and military expansion. He says that U.S. technology companies bear some of the blame for helping fuel Beijing's global achievements. "There's something about the woke politics inside these companies, the way they think of themselves as not really American companies. And it's somehow very, very difficult for them to have a sharp anti-China edge whatsoever," he says. Theil named Facebook, Google, Amazon, Microsoft and Apple in his assessment that American corporate culture has turned a blind eye to the communist country's human rights abuses, trade infractions and threat at the expense of the U.S. "If China is able to just catch up, there is a way in which it will become a more powerful country," warned Thiel.
