WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla., Dec. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — VantagePoint Software, using patented Artificial Intelligence technology to predict stock market trends and trend changes made the official announcement today that traders can now use the software to forecast Cryptocurrencies.

As a result of the recent growth in popularity of Cryptocurrencies and the outpouring of requests from current VantagePoint Software users, the VantagePoint R&D team began focusing on adapting the Artificial Intelligence forecasting technology for Cryptocurrencies.  Since 1991, VantagePoint has been able to consistently achieve over 80% accuracy in stocks and commodities due to the deep learning neural network technology that has been developed and refined over the past three decades (more information about the use of Artificial Intelligence can be found at www.VantagepointSoftware.com).

After considerable time spent testing and adapting the artificial intelligence to Cryptocurrency data VantagePoint Software has now been forecasting for Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum for some time with the high level of accuracy and consistency that VantagePoint has been known to deliver for stock and commodity traders.  But now that Cryptocurrencies are being regulated, the software company has decided to make these forecasts accessible through the VantagePoint software. Regulation was the key to release these forecasts because the family-owned software company wanted to ensure legitimacy before releasing it to traders. “Here at VantagePoint we bring real, tangible opportunities that have been vetted and tested with Artificial Intelligence to traders and investors  We are not interested in chasing fads and forecasting financial instruments because of what’s popular.  We have criteria for what we forecast for and Cryptocurrencies meet the criteria.” said Lane Mendelsohn, Vice President of VantagePoint Software.

It’s no secret that Cryptocurrencies are at an all-time high, and the profit potential is huge. VantagePoint’s forecasting indicated earlier this year that these increases were imminent and while many still doubted the potential.  Since the VantagePoint forecast Bitcoin has gone up 330%, Litecoin has gone up 467% and Ethereum has gone up 109%.

Due to the volatility of the markets, Cryptocurrencies can gain and lose value day over day. With VantagePoint, traders have the upper hand as they are equipped with the ability to forecast the trend direction and predict the next day’s highs and lows before they happen.  Even for those who are investing in these crypto currencies as opposed to trading need insight ahead of time as to when these crypto currencies may pull back and may be setting up to crash and knowing this information ahead of time with a high degree of accuracy is paramount.

It is uncertain what will happen over time for the virtual currency markets, but it does appear that there will be some dramatic movements in the Cryptocurrency market in 2018. Although it is not possible to predict these movements for the upcoming year, traders can get ahead of the curve when they utilize VantagePoint’s proprietary Artificial Intelligence capabilities to predict the market strength and direction of the most popular Cryptocurrencies 1-3 days in advance with up to 86% accuracy.

HUIZEN, Netherlands, Dec. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Companies in a variety of industries and sizes have turned to analytics leader SAS to gain value from data with the SAS Platform and its SAS® Viya® products.

Recent adopters from the Netherlands include Euramax (supplier of premium coil-coated aluminum); Notilyze (specializing in data science for small and midsized businesses); NVM (an organization of real estate agents and appraisers); SciSports (sports analytics firm); and SUEZ (improving waste and raw material management).

Euramax unifies data, analytics and visualization with a consistent user experience
Euramax Coated Products supplies premium coil coated aluminum all over the world for applications in architectural products, transportation and corporate identity design. The leadership team at Euramax knows the company’s success can depend on understanding and sometimes even redefining the future. That’s why the company is committed to business analytics and data exploration. SAS allows Euramax to gain more dynamic reporting and exploration capabilities and enhance mobility with the ability to carry data out into the field and share it with customers. With the newest upgrades to the SAS Platform, Euramax plans to take its data exploration to the next level.

“SAS is already helping us make better business decisions with SAS Visual Analytics, and these newest upgrades to the platform are going to give us even more insights,” said Peter Wijers, Business Support Manager at Euramax. “The ability to integrate more data sources and systems, apply advanced analytics to that data, and then visualize the data all in one interface with a consistent user experience will allow us to discover even more ways to excel our business.”

SUEZ uses machine learning to improve sales performance
SUEZ Recycling and Recovery specializes in waste and raw material management and is a driver of the raw materials revolution to help protect natural resources. From more than 40 branches across the Netherlands, SUEZ advises approximately 4.5 million households and 80,000 companies about their waste management. To serve customers more effectively in the digital landscape, SUEZ must monitor data about their customers in real time. SUEZ used the SAS Platform to create a tool to improve its sales process and performance.

Prior to SAS, the sales teams at SUEZ did not have a reliable view into data about their customers and prospects. Now, sales reps are provided with a tablet where they can access the most up-to-date customer profiles and receive customized recommendations about where to concentrate their sales efforts each day. Inside sales can also use the same data and forecasts tracked by outside sales to help make decisions about customers and prospects that they are speaking to over the phone. This creates a unified approach to sales across the organization, and ultimately helps improve customer relationships.

“SUEZ can pull all of our massive amounts of data into the SAS Platform, not just a sampling, and run the most sophisticated machine learning algorithms on it to create the more accurate forecasts for our sales team,” said Teddo van Mierle, Marketing Intelligence Expert at SUEZ. “One interface that can be used across the organization that creates a single version of the truth is improving the way we do business. Not only do we have the statistics in SAS, we now have the data collection, preparation and visualization all in one platform. Plus, we can deploy the models in a scalable, aligned and auditable way, and continuously feed the model new data to make it smarter and smarter over time. The better the forecasts, the better SUEZ is able to serve our customers.”

Notilyze helps SMBs embrace analytics
Small and midsized businesses (SMBs) can find it difficult to capitalize on the benefits of analytics. Dutch startup company Notilyze uses SAS to deliver data-science services on a pay-as-you-go subscription model. This model helps SMBs and entrepreneurs to capitalize on opportunities offered by the analytics-driven economy and Internet of Things without having to hire their own data scientists. Notilyze works exclusively with experienced data scientists so customers get answers to their questions and benefit from innovative insights and algorithms.

“SMBs are aware of the opportunities that come from using their data, but are at a loss to know where to start, and lack the knowledge and resources to do so. On top of that, the costs involved can be high,” says Colin Nugteren, Notilyze’s founder and CEO. “Together with SAS, we are offering these organizations a platform in a reliable cloud environment where their data is analyzed. The customer tells us the issues, and Notilyze data scientists select the necessary data and perform the analyses to deliver the answers. The customer can consult the results through dashboards and real-time web services, accessible wherever and whenever they like.”

An enhanced SAS Platform encompasses the entire analytics life cycle

LONDON, Dec. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — The mobile industry is on the cusp of an important phase of development, as enhanced technologies and innovative user interfaces and experiences seek to breathe new life into the stagnant market. In this ‘post- smartphone’ era, the market is constantly forced to provide users with more immersive touch-less experiences. New interfaces will need to be developed where voice, artificial intelligence (AI), mixed reality, augmented reality and gesture experiences can all converge.

ABI Research  www.abiresearch.com (PRNewsFoto/ABI Research)

In its latest report, which evaluates ten major companies from across the mobile ecosystem, ABI Research, a market-foresight advisory firm providing guidance on the most compelling transformative technologies, believes that as this next wave of innovation approaches, Google and Amazon will emerge as the market’s “leaders” due to continued growth in their apparent strengths.  Apple will lag due to innovation complacency.

An assessment was made of patent portfolios, research & development spend, acquisitions and contributions to Standards Bodies and Open Source Communities to provide comparative evaluation and benchmarking for 10 major ecosystem companies – Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, Huawei, Lenovo, LG, Microsoft, Nokia and Samsung – to see which are best placed to take full advantage of this future paradigm.

Based on the analysis included in the report, and the likely drive to the next phase of development in the smartphone ecosystem, ABI Research has determined that Google and Amazon will lead and drive innovation around smartphones and related ecosystems over the next five to six years. “This next wave of innovation in the smart device ecosystem will be led by Google and Amazon, as their apparent strength in major growth sectors, notably computer science, allows for a more flexible approach to next-generation user experiences that are essential for creating immersive experiences and brand-new ways of human-to-machine interactions,” says David McQueen, Research Director at ABI Research. “Without having the heavy burden of legacy systems and hardware, these web-scale companies are in a good position to lead the market into the post- smartphone era.”

The research classified established OEMs like Apple, Samsung, Microsoft, and Huawei as “followers/advocates”, as they were exhibiting some signs of complacency in the sector and are not currently as well set up to drive future innovation in the market. These players are also burdened with legacy establishments in the smartphone business, which give them little flexibility to innovate outside the box. Those in this classification, however, should not be dismissed so easily from leadership contention in the future, as they currently have a major influence on the market, mainly through brand strength and market share.

“The “follower/advocates” companies often follow an evolutionary approach to innovation, partly to protect their existing investment, as they fear disrupting their current market leadership, and partly because they find it harder to embrace new and more disruptive approaches to technology,” observes McQueen.

In this ‘post-smartphone era’ of new ecosystems and experiences, there will be a requirement for significant investment in the underpinning technologies and technical expertise as well as the creation of “intelligent phones” that are able to effectively leverage these forthcoming technologies.

These highlight findings are taken from ABI Research’s MOBILE ECOSYSTEM LEADERS AND LAGGARDS IN THE POST-SMARTPHONE ERA: AN ANALYSIS OF PATENTS, R&D, AND COLLABORATIVE ACTIVITIES report. This report is part of the company’s Handsets & Devices research service, which includes research, data, and analyst insights.

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Dec. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Cognovi Labs, developer of the SaaS platform for emotion-based artificial intelligence, saw their Oct. 22 prediction of a Doug Jones victory realized in Tuesday’s Alabama Senate election. Acting well ahead of poll data, Cognovi made the prediction almost three weeks before the sexual harassment claims surfaced against Moore.

The prediction was based around Cognovi Emotion AI findings that showed Jones’ superior ability to trigger an intense emotional bond with the electorate, which allowed him to generate the required turnout to win the election.

This result follows a string of successful Cognovi predictions for several high-profile outcomes, including predicting the Brexit referendum hours before the polls closed; and foretelling the results of the 2016 U.S. presidential election. In addition to political events, Cognovi utilizes its AI platform to make predictions for businesses, investors, corporations, ad agencies and public figures.

“Our AI technology provides a window into your future, today. Whether that is increasing market share, sales performance, stock returns or improving election results, Cognovi AI is uniquely positioned to drive results,” said Beni Gradwohl, Ph.D., CEO and co-founder of Cognovi Labs. “By harnessing the key drivers of the future in particular, the emotions-based human behavior and intent — we are able to determine engagement and intensity that act as a predictive indicator for future outcomes. This also allows for the opportunity to make real-time adjustments to alter those outcomes.”

Cognovi Labs’ AI technology was developed by Dr. Amit Sheth at the Kno.e.sis Center at Wright State University. Under the Startup Nursery, Ikove identified and vetted the underlying technology and then launched Cognovi Labs in partnership with the university, Amit Sheth and Beni Gradwohl with worldwide, perpetual exclusive rights to commercialize the powerful Emotion AI technology. “Cognovi was founded upon the realization that our technology could capture emotion and passion to provide predictive insights that meet business and marketing needs,” said Flavio Lobato, Managing Partner of Ikove Venture Partners and co-founder and Chairman of the Board at Cognovi Labs. “Ikove is committed to commercializing and nursing high-impact technologies, and we are proud to see continued validation of Cognovi’s artificial intelligence.”
