VantagePoint Artificial Intelligence Trading Software ‘Highly Recommended’ After Four-Year Test Demonstrates Forecasting Accuracy, Consistency and Superior Capabilities

WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla., Feb. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — VantagePoint, the artificial intelligence trading software capable of predicting stock market trends up to three days in advance with up to 86 percent forecasting accuracy, is rated “highly recommended” after multi-year tests performed by Terry Wooten, former editor for Dow Jones.

Wooten’s review, published in YourTradingEdge (YTE), highlights VantagePoint’s unique artificial intelligence forecasting capabilities that give traders a significant advantage over others who still rely on single-market, trend-following indicators that lag behind the markets. These outdated approaches look only at each individual market by itself, but fail to address the intermarket effects that related global markets have on the market.  

“VantagePoint is a first-class tool to use to build profitable trading strategies,” Wooten said in the review. “VantagePoint will provide a definite statistical advantage that I have not seen elsewhere. An intelligent trader or investor should have no problem recouping the cost of the software quickly.  Highly recommended.”

VantagePoint’s version 10 — just released last week with the most significant updates to date — predicted the Dow’s largest single-day point drop which occurred Feb. 5, 2018 five days in advance. Traders using the software leveraged this valuable insight to make more informed trading decisions in advance of the historically volatile trading day.

The review, available now in the bi-monthly magazine for traders and active investors, also details VantagePoint’s ability to forecast Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Ethereum with the same high level of predictive accuracy achieved with all other markets it covers.

x.ai Launches AI Scheduling Assistants on Slack

NEW YORK, Feb. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — x.ai, inc., an artificial intelligence company, today announced their AI assistants Amy + Andrew can now schedule meetings for customers in Slack.

After spending four years building AI assistants to completely remove the pain of scheduling meetings, x.ai moves even closer to that reality by giving customers the ability to use Amy and Andrew on Slack.

x.ai’s vision for their AI scheduling assistants has always extended beyond email to other communications channels. Amy and Andrew ultimately will work alongside you, wherever you’re working. Many x.ai customers (as well as the company’s own team) already use Slack; being able to interact with Amy and Andrew within any Slack channel was the natural first step towards an omni-channel AI scheduling assistant.

“Amy and Andrew already relieve a huge amount of pain for our customers, saving them hours each week”, says Dennis Mortensen, CEO of x.ai. “By adding the option to work with them directly in Slack, you remove yet another piece of scheduling friction—context switching.”

Customers can install the x.ai app to their Slack workspaces to set up a new meeting, set reminders, and check on their meetings. Amy and Andrew understand natural language which means customers can use plain English to make scheduling requests via Slack, just as they do via email.

Early reviews from customers emphasize the ease of AI-scheduled meetings within Slack. “I had been chatting with a collaborator via Slack DM and it became clear we should meet up in person,” explained Drake Pusey, Founder at Volition Project and Advisor at the Technology and Entrepreneurship Center at Harvard. “Without having to leave the conversation, I asked Amy to set up a coffee—she took care of the scheduling and I got the invite in no time. Winning!”

5 Companies Riding the Blockchain Wave

LONDON, February 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ —

FN Media Group Presents Safehaven.com News Commentary 

Blockchain can eventually affect every industry in the world–and make no mistake about it. Even if hyper-volatile cryptocurrencies are dipping and diving, the overall gains for many are thousand percentage points, and new multi-millionaires are being minted left and right.  Blockchain is its backbone-but it’s so much more than cryptocurrency. It is a technology that will up-end every single industry on the planet.  Included in today’s commentary:  Overstock.com, Inc. (NYSE:OSTK), NVIDIA Corporation (NYSE:NVDA), International Business Machines Corporation (NYSE:IBM), Innovation Shares NextGen Proto (NYSE:KOIN), Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE:KODK).

And sometimes all it takes to revive a dead dinosaur of a company right now is a whisper of blockchain involvement.

  • Overstock has seen share prices jump over 300 percent in 12 months on a strategy shift to blockchain
  • Kodak shares tripled in a day on the announcement of KodakCoin, and few of us even realized Kodak was still around
  • MoneyGram bust through the gates by announcing a partnership with Ripple cryptocurrency to ease transactions.

It’s real. We are moving toward a cashless society. But the reality check gets even more exciting when we realize that if we think beyond the box of cryptocurrency, blockchain is reinventing the way we do EVERYTHING. From shipping and finance, to food packaging, gaming and healthcare. Absolutely everything.

But the sheer size of the potential here poses an equally sizable problem for investors: How to get in on it without losing your shirt?

Here are 5 stocks that could make it easy for investors to test the stormy blockchain sea:

#1 Overstock (NYSE:OSTK) 

Overstock has been the undeniable blockchain business leader, and its stock has been climbing all year, with few setbacks.

There’s constant news flow here, and it’s being helped along by Overstock’s fintech subsidiary, tZero, which just announced the purchase of a 24 percent stake in StockCross Financial Services, Inc. tZero is on the prowl to aggregate all components of its trading, clearing and settlement platform. It’s looking to buy, build or partner, so the news flow is brilliant.

It’s a definite blockchain bull, but it’s been completely reasonable and rational. That’s what makes it one of the safest bets on blockchain. It’s investing in companies on the cutting edge of development in the blockchain space, and its stock price shows that it’s not scaring anyone away.

At this point, while everyone has always thought of Overstock as just an internet merchant, it’s time to start viewing this as a blockchain business. They’ve got their own cryptocurrency exchange, and the stock has gained 316 percent in the past 12 months.

#2 Global Blockchain Technologies (BLOC; BLKCF)

How about this for a small, $64-million market cap company sitting on an ethereal goldmine?

Anyone who missed the first crypto boat and is dying to get in on the most exciting market sector of our time is now wondering how, and this is easiest way:

BLOC is a publicly traded blockchain “private equity fund” and “incubator” that you can get in on through your online brokerage account.

Even better: The company is a blockchain mastermind. It’s the brainchild of the same man who co-created Ethereum, Steven Nerayoff.  

Ethereum has gained over 357,000 percent since its launch, with Nerayoff as its advisor. He was also a senior advisor to the Lisk Cryptocurrency project which now has a market cap of over 3 billion dollars.  

Not only are they investing in crypto projects (as one expects a hedge fund to)…

But they are also incubating handpicked blockchain companies.

The best part…

You don’t need to know anything about Bitcoin… blockchain… or have your own crypto investing system…

Because you can add Global Blockchain to your portfolio with just a few clicks, and let the only publicly traded crypto investment team do the work for you.

Global Blockchain has put together a core team that aims to be “incubating” 6-12 new digital currencies every year. This means that Global Blockchain will be providing the funding for these new currencies in return for an equity stake.

BLOC’s strategy is multi-pronged and aside from giving us an easy way to get in on the biggest market ever, this is its key attraction.

It gives you exposure not only to the top trading tokens, but also early-in, exclusive access to the tokens that are expected to trade in the future. It covers large-cap, small-cap and pre-ICO/ICO tokens all at the same time.

Average gains of top tokens like Bitcoin, Ethereum and Ripple (among others) is mind-blowing.

And beyond this, there is huge potential for growth. These are the precisely the types of tokens Global Blockchain is targeting, but exposure gets even better through BLOC’s access to pre-ICO (initial coin offering) and ICO tokens.

ICOs are sort of the “wild west” of the cryptocurrency world. There’s not much transparency or regulation, so many of them are illegal scams. Those that aren’t stand to be huge returners, and Global Blockchain has the experience to know the difference. After all, they are ICO masters with Ethereum and others to back them up.

There’s still more: BLOC is also building a portfolio of startups focused on blockchain-based services. That means acquiring … and tokenizing software that could further benefit blockchain. It even invested in Kodak One, and the price of Kodak jumped a whopping 321 percent after it announced a crypto-currency deal. The Kodak ICO is expected at the end of this month and with BLOC’s huge stake this is definitely one to watch.

And then there’s their partnership with Overstock.com (NASDAQ:OSTK) and its tZero subsidiary.

Blockchain-and its rewards-are only limited by the imagination, and BLOC has plenty of imagination. We expect news to flow by hard and fast as they add new, exclusive projects.

#3 Nvidia (NYSE:NVDA) 

Didn’t think NVDA was a blockchain company? Well, it’s not … and it is. When you pick it apart, it’s one of the backbones: NVDA makes semiconductors to power cryptocurrency mining.

NVDA is a major climber this year, and a long-time favorite when we talk about anything from artificial intelligence to blockchain.

When stock prices go on a run for too long, the knee-jerk reaction can be a pullback out of fear that it’s just too much of a good thing. We think this is a mistake when it comes to NVDA. This company is involved heavily in everything from autonomous vehicles, graphic processing, central processing units, computer gaming and blockchain … It’s cornering tech on every level, and we think it’s only at the beginning of its run.

#5 International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM) 

IBM stock isn’t doing great right now, despite a solid earnings call on 18 January. Stock is down around 4 percent over the past week.

IBM reported Q4 adjusted diluted earnings per share of $5.18 on revenues of $22.54 billion. This is up from the same period a year ago, which recorded EPS of $5.01 on revenues of $21.77 billion. Figures were also up for the full year and slightly exceeded analyst estimates.

So, IBM strengthened its position as the leading enterprise cloud provider and established itself as a blockchain leader for business.

Still, stocks are down. Why? Because no one is yet convinced about the blockchain move, and this is a mistake.

What they don’t like are IBM’s declining business signings and declining backlog, so they don’t see the profit margins improving.

But they’re stuck in the past when they should be focusing on the future, and the future is blockchain.

Right now, is a great time to buy IBM in our opinion. Buy on the dip, hold for the long term and ride the blockchain.

What we’re looking at is IBM’s deal with shipping giant Maersk to form a new company to commercialize blockchain technology. IBM would hold 49 percent in this venture, which still doesn’t have a name. It would help shippers, ports, customs offices, banks and other global supply chain stakeholders track freight and turn paperwork into digital records. This is huge, and no one’s caught on yet.

#5 Blockchain ETFs 

Another safer way to get in on blockchain is through three ETFS that seek out real ties to blockchain. What we like about this is the flexibility because they can couple small blockchain companies with something like IBM, which Wall Street would relegate only to IT, not blockchain. This gives us a wide diversity for getting in on blockchain, and something that might not have startling returns, but is safer for the cautious investor.

  • Innovation Shares NextGen Protocol ETF (NYSE:KOIN) picks stocks using a quant model, tracking companies and putting them in a proprietary index (Blockchain Innovators Index). Most companies are U.S. based, but Chinese companies feature as well (11 percent). They hold Visa and Mastercard in the Top 10 because they’ve started blockchain payments. It just started trading on the NYSE.
  • Reality Shares Nasdaq NextGen Economy (BLCN) ETF owns companies like HIVE Blockchain Technologies, Japanese SBI investment bank, IBM and Overstock.  

Honorable Mention 

Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE:KODK): Announcing KodakCoin, this company was brought back from the dead with a triple increase in stock on the day of the announcement.

Providence Health & Services Debuts New Virtual Care Solution to Connect Patients and Physicians Online

PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Providence Health & Services, in partnership with Providence Health Plan, today announced that it will provide patients and health plan members across the state of Oregon with access to new online health care services via SmartExam™ from Bright.md, developer of a virtual care solution to improve health care efficiencies and outcomes while reducing costs for many of the most common health conditions. The SmartExam offering is covered in full for Providence Health Plan members and available otherwise for $20 per visit, less than the cost of the average co-pay.

Providence initially tested SmartExam with a limited number of users, comprised of its own employees and other select groups, and quickly saw how access to trusted physicians via mobile phone, tablets or computers could benefit all residents of Oregon.

Providence is putting a strong emphasis on digital health services that bring innovation to the market and make high quality care more convenient for the communities we serve,” said Benjamin LeBlanc, MD, chief medical Officer at Providence Medical Group. “We believe this provides a significant opportunity to reach more patients and members when they need us, while providing valuable services more cost-effectively. We’re excited to extend this offering throughout Oregon, and further strengthen our relationships with members of the Providence community.”

Currently available to more than 6 million patients and members across the country, Bright.md’s SmartExam acts as a virtual physician’s assistant, enabling physicians and Advanced Practice Clinicians to deliver efficient remote care, reduce costs, and improve patient outcomes. Patients are able to receive care from their trusted providers using a mobile phone, tablet or computer. The intelligent software dynamically interviews patients, using answers to gather more information and support providers in care delivery. SmartExam leverages artificial intelligence (AI) to get smarter as it learns more about patients’ specific needs and conditions. It uses patient answers and information from the electronic medical record (EMR) system to hone the next question, improving the ability to identify important issues and potential causes, which enable the physician to provide evidence-based treatments.

SmartExam’s AI capabilities result in more thorough patient interviews than in-person or video-based remote care solutions. With better background information, providers can address patient needs in just two to three minutes. The speed and efficiency of care has resulted in high marks from patients and providers alike; 90 percent of patients say they would use the solution again, and 88 percent of providers report high satisfaction with SmartExam.

Providence is a cutting-edge health system that sees the value of engaging with members in different ways and leveraging technology to support care initiatives. The addition of SmartExam as a virtual physician’s assistant further extends Providence’s leadership in delivering innovative, value-based care that meets the unique needs of Oregon residents,” said Ray Costantini, MD, co-founder and CEO of Bright.md. “Through SmartExam’s care automation, Providence members can access their trusted physicians to quickly and easily address basic health concerns, at a cost that is significantly less than a typical co-pay.”

Presbyterian Healthcare and Providence Health & Services Launch Statewide Implementations of Bright.md Virtual Care Solution

PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Bright.md, developer of a virtual care solution to improve healthcare efficiencies and outcomes while reducing costs for many common health conditions, announced today that two major health systems in the Western United StatesPresbyterian Healthcare Services in New Mexico and Providence Health & Services in Oregon – have implemented SmartExam™, making it available to all of their patients in those states. In addition, Presbyterian is introducing Bright.md’s new medically certified Spanish translation services to better serve their patients in New Mexico, where more than a third of the residents speak Spanish.

“Healthcare systems like Presbyterian and Providence have been paving the way with exciting telehealth and remote care initiatives. The addition of SmartExam as a virtual physician’s assistant further extends their leadership in delivering innovative, value-based care that meets the unique needs of their communities,” said Ray Costantini, MD, co-founder and CEO of Bright.md. “Through SmartExam’s care automation, members of a health system can access their trusted physicians to quickly and easily address their most common health concerns, at a cost that is significantly less than a typical co-pay.”

Spanish Language Feature Extends SmartExam Accessibility for Presbyterian Patients
Presbyterian is the first health system to use SmartExam’s unique Spanish translation feature, a critical differentiator in a community where the Spanish speaking population is more than four times the size of the national average. SmartExam offers an option to interview patients in Spanish and provides a real-time, medically certified translation into an English chart-ready note. Patients will also receive personalized educational and care materials in Spanish, improving the patient experience and increasing treatment efficacy.

“We know that many of our patients and members face cost or language barriers when accessing care so we are trying to remove those obstacles through innovative programs like SmartExam. SmartExam enables us to deliver a solution that works well in driving down the cost of care while easing the way for people to access care,” said Ries Robinson, Presbyterian’s chief innovation officer. “We’ve experienced an enthusiastic response to our virtual care option, and are on pace to complete more than 600 visits in just our first month.”

Providence Expands SmartExam Use, Becomes Largest Provider to Offer the Virtual Care Solution
An early leader in remote care that has its own health plan and is moving toward a value-based care model, Providence is expanding its use of SmartExam across Oregon. Initially, Providence deployed SmartExam to a small population, comprised of its own employees and other select groups, but quickly saw how the solution could benefit members statewide.

Providence is putting a strong emphasis on digital health services that bring innovation to the market and make high quality care more convenient for the communities we serve,” said Benjamin LeBlanc, MD, chief medical officer at Providence Medical Group. “We believe this provides a significant opportunity to reach more patients and members when they need us, while providing valuable services more cost-effectively. We’re excited to extend this offering throughout Oregon, and further strengthen our relationships with members of the Providence community.”

Reducing Time Per Visit and Improving Care
Currently available to more than 6 million members across the country, Bright.md’s SmartExam acts as a virtual physician’s assistant, enabling physicians to deliver efficient remote care, cut costs and improve patient outcomes. Patients are able to receive care from their trusted primary care providers using a mobile phone, tablet or computer. The intelligent software dynamically interviews patients, using answers to gather more information and support providers in care delivery. SmartExam leverages artificial intelligence (AI) to get smarter as it learns more about patients’ specific needs and conditions. It uses patient answers and information from the electronic medical record (EMR) system to hone the next question, improving the ability to identify important issues and potential causes, which enable the physician to provide evidence-based treatments.

SmartExam’s AI capabilities result in more thorough patient interviews than in-person, or video-based remote care solutions. When combined with the historic information accessed from the patient’s medical record, providers can address patient needs in just two to three minutes, while delivering high quality, evidence-based care. The speed, quality, and efficiency of care has resulted in high marks from patients and providers alike; 90 percent of patients say they would use the solution again, and 88 percent of providers report high satisfaction with SmartExam.

About Bright.md
Bright.md is transforming health care delivery with an innovative software solution that cuts the cost of health care visits by 80 percent. Its virtual care solution SmartExam™ automates care and communication between physician and patient for faster, more convenient diagnosis and treatment. A Gartner Cool Vendor in Healthcare, Bright.md’s SmartExam solution is the preferred choice of AVIA’s Virtual Access cohort, which includes eight major health delivery systems nationwide. SmartExam has been deployed by major health care delivery systems including Greenville Health System and Rush University Medical System. Founded in 2014 and based in Portland, Ore., the company is venture-backed by leading investors including B Capital Group, the Pritzker Group, Seven Peaks Ventures, SpringRock Ventures, and Oregon Angel Fund.

Vocareum Integration with edX.org platform enables Cloud Lab option for Massive Open Online Classes

SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Vocareum, a pioneer in cloud-based learning labs, is pleased to announce the general availability of its integration with edX.org, the leading nonprofit online learning platform created by Harvard and MIT, to enable instructors to deliver more interactive and engaging content than ever before. The Vocareum cloud learning labs and auto-grading capabilities make it possible to administer coding assignment, perform assessment and deliver student feedback at scale and in real time across the over 2,000 online courses and programs offered on edX.org.

Vocareum, a pioneer in cloud-based learning labs, announces the general availability of its integration with edX.org, the leading nonprofit online learning platform created by Harvard and MIT, to enable instructors to deliver more interactive and engaging content than ever before. The Vocareum cloud learning labs and auto-grading capabilities make it possible to administer coding assignment, perform assessment and deliver student feedback at scale and in real time.

Having already been deployed across numerous partners within the edX educational consortium, the Vocareum solution on edX supports a broad range of courses, including Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Data Science, Software Development and more from prestigious schools, including Columbia University, The University of California, San Diego, The Georgia Institute of Technology, and University of Pennsylvania.

“We see edX leading the way with more interactive and engaging content and are excited to be working with them and our school partners to provide the critical lab and assessment capabilities to make it a reality,” said Sanjay Srivastava, CEO of Vocareum.  “For Vocareum, this is a unique opportunity to demonstrate the robust nature of our offering.”

“We are excited to announce this new level of integration with Vocareum,” said Anant Agarwal, edX CEO and MIT professor. “Through our work together, we are able to offer learners, all over the world, with a more enriched, rigorous and personalized online learning experience with online labs and code graders. Our partnership marks an exciting step in furthering our joint missions of increasing access to high-quality education for all learners, everywhere.”

In January 2017, Georgia Tech launched its CS1301x: Introduction to Computing online class on edX.org, serving over 69,000 students to date. As David Joyner, the course’s designer and instructor, points out, “Our course material includes over 300 coding exercises delivered through the Vocareum cloud labs in edX. The reliability and customizability are high enough for us to use for hundreds of for-credit students at Georgia Tech, but the scalability and automated grading let us simultaneously deliver them to thousands of MOOC students around the world — and the experience embedded inside edX dramatically reduces the friction for both audiences.”

Columbia University’s CSMM.101x Artificial Intelligence course on edX.org has enrolled over 160,000 learners since it began in January 2017. “As part of Columbia’s MicroMasters program in Artificial Intelligence, this course provides rigorous, master-level coursework and requires learners to complete in-depth, hands-on programming assignments that were designed on the Vocareum platform,” said Dr. Ansaf Salleb-Aouissi, the course’s lecturer. “Vocareum’s seamless integration with edX and scalability has allowed the design team to provide graduate level programming assignments to thousands of learners globally.”

Key Features of Vocareum available on edX include:

  • Single-Sign-On
    Vocareum provides seamless integration through LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability) and a single sign-on for edX users, with no need for a separate Vocareum login. 

  • Consistent User Experience
    edX users stay within the platform’s context, even when working on assignments served by the Vocareum cloud. Simple micro-assessments or programming exercises can occur directly in-line with the rest of the educational content;  more complex programming assignments or exams can launch in a new browser window.
  • Automated grading and reporting
    With Vocareum’s automated grading capabilities, edX instructors can support massive enrollments and also deliver a much more engaging student experience with hands-on programming assignments and real-time assessment of student work. 
  • Scalability
    The Vocareum cloud lab is built for MOOC-scale and has already been deployed in sizeable edX computer and data science courses, handling millions of live student programming assignments.

Vocareum’s hands-on programming labs and real-time assessments, paired with edX’s platform and educational content, provide tomorrow’s computer and data scientist professionals with the knowledge and tools to create real-world solutions in emerging disciplines.
