The Cryptocurrencies are definitely here to stay. In recent times, negotiations using digital currencies have been on the rise, and with the popularization of the resource, debates about its regularization are recorded continuously.

In several countries, its use has already been integrated into commercialization, while in other places, there has been prohibition and even bills to criminalize such transactions. Many platforms and services such as Telegram, Kodak, Samsung, and Facebook, already think of ways to crack crypto-coins in their business, and interestingly, it is even possible to mine digital coins through the heat of the human body.

In any case, the natural course of cryptocurrency growth obviously led to the creation of alternative versions. Bizarre names and origins embody various digital currencies, and as a result, we decided to gather here the 10 strangest ones that circulate the internet. Check out:

BananaCoin

Forget the coins collected at Donkey Kong Country. Launched recently, Bananacoin may seem like a joke at first glance, but the cryptocurrency actually has a proposal (strange, but still, a proposal): its value is tied to the export price of bananas. The mission of the digital currency is to assist in the cultivation of organic bananas through the first ecological plantation in Laos, a country located in Southeast Asia. Curious, is not it?

TrumpCoin

The way President Donald Trump manages his country may not please everyone, but it is undeniable that he has people who support him in any way. TrumpCoins are meant to “support the president and his vision of making the United States a big country again. The ambassadors of this cryptocurrency need to publish articles weekly on the Facebook page to win them, making the whole process somewhat of a doctrinaire.

DogeCoin

The “Doge” meme came out a few years ago, based on a Shiba dog from Japan. The game is still sporadically used here and there by relatively old Internet users, while its currency is famous in the crypto-coins market. DogeCoin has even sponsored Nasdaq racing cars and the opening of water wells in Africa, as well as sending the teams of exotic sports bobsled to the Winter Olympics. Its value already reaches almost 2 billion.

SexCoin

The name itself says a lot about this cryptocurrency, but if it has not been clear, SexCoin is the first digital currency aimed at the adult entertainment industry. Its use is aimed at the acquisition of products aimed at people over 18 years of age.

PotCoin

The cannabis industry could not be left out of the cryptomedical party. PotCoin was created so that merchants and customers could use a platform dedicated to buying and selling marijuana-related products. The currency’s value is high and has even patronized Dennis Rodman’s trip to North Korea.

PutinCoin

Similar to TrumpCoin, this crypto-currency was created to honor the President and people of Russia. There is a variant of the digital coin called PutinClassic, and this, in turn, is considered as the “first crypto-currency used as a souvenir.”

UFOCoin

Before you think this digital currency is meant to make contact with aliens or any similar act, know that it has hit the market recently, and fortunately or unfortunately, it has no relation to ETs. UFO Coin uses the so-called neoscrpyt technology to encrypt some feature further and thus create an extra layer of protection for the network. The main developer of the cryptocurrency, Peter Bushnell, is a former miner of Bitcoins.

DentaCoin

Another newbie in the market is the DentaCoin. This, however, is intended for the global dental industry and is already accepted as a means of payment in clinics with which it has the partnership.

Legends Room

This digital currency is destined for a group named after the namesake of Las Vegas. The Legends Room is the world’s first gentlemen’s club to host its own cryptoman. To receive a lifetime membership, you must collect five thousand coins. Legends Room fans guarantee a 20% discount on drinks and casino services (games are not included in the offer), while members earn 50%.

Useless Ethereum Token

This other cryptocurrency, although often regarded as a joke, is considered the most honest digital currency on the market. When acquiring a Useless Ethereum Token (UET), the user receives completely useless coins in return, even the name itself warning of its value: zero. Its slogan is “worthless, without security, without product.”

Some coins are too interesting to be left out of this list and therefore have gained a little space amid the honorable mentions. This is the case of Coinye West, named after the singer Kanye West, which is worth practically nothing and that resulted in a suit to its creators for infringing copyright when using the face of the artist in its logo.

PotatoCoin Spuds, for its part, has an ambitious idea in its concept, which is to improve conditions for farmers in Africa.

As for Unobtanium UNO, it has nothing to do with the game UNO; in fact, the cryptomaniac has this name because of a term used in engineering and fictitious thinking to describe an extremely rare and expensive material.

Lastly, there is still FuckToken, which offers its investors a unique opportunity to express how they really feel and connect, literally, of * $ @ -%.

Why Is Internet Of Things So Important?

With gigantic volumes of data, in an increasingly connected and metric environment, the “internet of things” has gained importance with frightening speed. Whether in simple systems or the most complex and intricate systems, internet of things (IoT) has proven to be a valuable technology for the collection, management and rational use of information.

Taking as one of the driving forces behind the digital transformation, by pushing and sustaining innovation processes in all areas, with security and scalability, the Internet of Things will have no less than 34 billion connected devices by 2020, in a number that can be revised upwards briefly.

Why is this technology so attractive? What benefit does it bring to the business? In this new world we are living, with intelligent, liquid ecosystems, 24 x 7 – something we insist on mentioning whenever possible – av

With gigantic volumes of data, in an increasingly connected and metric environment, the “internet of things” has gained importance with frightening speed. Whether in simple systems or the most complex and intricate systems, internet of things (IoT) has proven to be a valuable technology for the collection, management and rational use of information.

Taking as one of the driving forces behind the digital transformation, by pushing and sustaining innovation processes in all areas, with security and scalability, the Internet of Things will have no less than 34 billion connected devices by 2020, in a number that can be revised upwards briefly.

Why is this technology so attractive? What benefit does it bring to the business? In this new world we are living, with intelligent, liquid ecosystems, 24 x 7 – something we insist on mentioning whenever possible – avoiding failures, having redundancies and knowing how to prioritize what is needed is fundamental. That’s why IoT has grown to – and will still grow – a lot!

Is not it cool to collect the data right in the cloud? Is it not sensational and infinitely more intelligent to measure everything, but only to record what is really important, what actually brings something new or authentic insights?

We can avoid a lot of noise and waste of time by managing, from the source, what is really determinant in specific areas, contributing to the creation of so-called data marts: data repositories aimed at directed responses. Bingo!

If your business wants to enter the 21st century – if it has not already done so – IoT is one of the topics that you and your team need to consider in order to optimize their structure and amplify results.

Microsoft to Invest $25 Million in Affordability Over The Next Five Years

Microsoft is investing in accessibility technologies for its products. The company announced that it has set aside $25 million for the development of artificial intelligence technologies for accessibility projects.

“Around the world, only one in ten people with disabilities have access to assistive technologies and products,” Microsoft Chairman Brad Smith wrote in an official post. “By making artificial intelligence solutions more widely available, we believe that technology can have a broad impact on this important community.”

The program will have a total of five years of development expected to impact more than 1 billion people with disabilities around the world. Among the company’s concerns are ensuring that people get

Microsoft is investing in accessibility technologies for its products. The company announced that it has set aside $25 million for the development of artificial intelligence technologies for accessibility projects.

“Around the world, only one in ten people with disabilities have access to assistive technologies and products,” Microsoft Chairman Brad Smith wrote in an official post. “By making artificial intelligence solutions more widely available, we believe that technology can have a broad impact on this important community.”

The program will have a total of five years of development expected to impact more than 1 billion people with disabilities around the world. Among the company’s concerns are ensuring that people get as much to see and hear, as to seize and still have the motor skills to use the tools of the company.

Searches will be based on experiences of users with disabilities; the goal is that they can go beyond three scenarios: work, modern life, and human relations.

With this, the program called IA for Accessibility will be started in three parameters. The first, according to Smith, is to partner with developers, universities, NGOs, and inventors to provide tools for inclusion in society, work and human relations.

With the development of new proposals, the idea is to use Microsoft’s artificial intelligence system to produce these technologies in a scalable way. Finally, the company would work with partners to include these technologies, to encourage more companies to adapt to an accessibility stance.

Recently, Microsoft introduced Translator, a tool that allows real-time speech and non-internet-speaking description that can be used by people with or without hearing.

MIT Develops Wearable Reading What You Are Thinking

In science fiction, the practice of silently saying words thought by the mind is called subvocalization. If the term does not sound familiar, think of when you read a board or a text, and the consciousness automatically reproduces the writings in the brain: it’s like you’re reading aloud inside your head, is not it?

Recently, this began to be used for purposes of interaction with computers and mobile devices, and the MIT researchers even created a wearable that measures neuromuscular signals, they are triggered when the individual does the subvocalization.

The gadget may at first appear to be just a medical device attached to the user’s face, but one can imagine that in future the size of the component will decrease and it will be allocated to the face in a more subtle way. It is also speculated that wearable can be used as a sort of wizard, with activ

In science fiction, the practice of silently saying words thought by the mind is called subvocalization. If the term does not sound familiar, think of when you read a board or a text, and the consciousness automatically reproduces the writings in the brain: it’s like you’re reading aloud inside your head, is not it?

Recently, this began to be used for purposes of interaction with computers and mobile devices, and the MIT researchers even created a wearable that measures neuromuscular signals, they are triggered when the individual does the subvocalization.

The gadget may at first appear to be just a medical device attached to the user’s face, but one can imagine that in future the size of the component will decrease and it will be allocated to the face in a more subtle way. It is also speculated that wearable can be used as a sort of wizard, with activations integrated through “Hey Siri” or “OK Google”, but for now, the system created by MIT works in a different way: with electrodes that pick up the signals that you verbalize internally, as if they were bone-conducting headphones. The idea is that the component uses the vibrations transmitted to the bones of the inner ear without obstructing the ear canal.

These signals are then sent to a computer that uses neural networks to distinguish words. So far, the system has been used to do things like use Roku, ask for weather forecasts and even report your opponent’s chess moves to get the best counterattacks. All this in complete silence, since the only interaction that exists is between the individual and his mind, and the gadget.

According to Arnav Kapur, an MIT student and lead author of the study, “the motivation for [wearable development] was to build a device with artificial intelligence – an intelligence enhancement device.” He further states that the idea the team had at the outset was that they could “have a more internal computing platform that merges humans and machines in some way and that would seem to be an internal extension of our own cognition.”

Chinese Tech Firms Still Have Difficulty Promoting Gender Equality

Human Rights Watch has issued a report calling attention to the way large Chinese technology companies are wishing to fight machismo in the workplace. According to the statistical survey, almost one in five job ads posted in the country include information such as “men only” or “preferably men”.

According to Sophie Richardson, director of Human Rights Watch in China, some companies go deeper into sexism. This is the case with Alibaba, which advertised recruiting ads promising, as one of the benefits of the vacancies offered, that the work environment had beautiful work colleagues.

The <a href="http://money.cnn.com/2018/04/23/technology/china-women-sexist-job-ads-hrw/index.html?section=money_news_companies&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+rss%2Fmoney_news_companies+%28CNNMoney%3A+Companies+News%2

Human Rights Watch has issued a report calling attention to the way large Chinese technology companies are wishing to fight machismo in the workplace. According to the statistical survey, almost one in five job ads posted in the country include information such as “men only” or “preferably men”.

According to Sophie Richardson, director of Human Rights Watch in China, some companies go deeper into sexism. This is the case with Alibaba, which advertised recruiting ads promising, as one of the benefits of the vacancies offered, that the work environment had beautiful work colleagues.

The study and irregularities analyzed more than 36,000 job vacancies were found in internationally renowned companies including Alibaba, Baidu, Huawei, and Tencent.

Alibaba

The entity reviewed China’s largest e-commerce company and a consistent pattern of women’s exclusion was evident. In addition to serving job offers only for male professionals, the company also presented an advertisement containing as a benefit to men the presence of attractive women in the workplace.

On the allegations, the company responded that “they have clear and well-defined guidelines on equal opportunities regardless of sex” and that “it will lead to more rigorous reviews of recruitment announcements to ensure compliance with our policy.” Alibaba also reported that it is one of the companies that offer the most gender equality in its work environment, with one-third of management positions being held by women.

Huawei

In 2015, the smartphone maker announced a social media ad that said, “You want your salary to increase at a rate higher than real estate prices, marry a rich, beautiful, fair-skinned woman, and go to the peak of your life?”. However, the company claims that gender equality is embedded in its values.

Following the Human Rights Watch report, a Huawei spokesperson reported: “We will review the allegations brought to our attention in the report and also work to ensure that all recruitment advertising materials are fully gendered sensitive.”

Tencent

The company runs a prevalent instant messaging application in China, and according to the report in October 2016, an employee said during a US recruitment fair that the main reason he joined Tencent was that the pros human resources that interviewed him were sexually attractive.

“We investigate these incidents and are making immediate changes, we regret that they have occurred, and we will take swift action to ensure that they do not happen,” said a spokesman for the company. happen again “.

Baidu

The company responsible for the main search engine used by Chinese Internet users, Baidu had several ads that were identified as improper by the survey. In a video posted to a company account on social networks in September 2016, an employee appears to be speaking that he is happy in his professional life for being able to work alongside beautiful women. An ad for professionals interested in the content reviewer’s post, run in March 2017, required candidates to be males so they could work on weekends, holidays and at night.

A Baidu spokeswoman said: “We value the important work our employees do throughout the organization, and we deeply regret the cases where our job vacancies have not aligned with Baidu’s values.”

Even before the Human Rights Watch report was released, the company removed the inappropriate content from its social media and described it as “isolated cases that in no way reflect our company’s dedication to equality in the workplace.” Baidu also stated that 45 percent of its employees are female, a proportion that even counts with medium and high-ranking positions.

Government Accountability

In China, some legislations prohibit gender segregation in advertisements for job vacancies, but it fails to be descriptive of what constitutes discrimination in practice. The full report: “As a result, the level of oversight is low and Chinese authorities rarely proactively investigate companies that repeatedly violate relevant laws.”

With the report, Human Rights Watch calls on the Chinese government to make changes in legislation, including a new anti-discrimination law in the workplace. In addition, it also calls on companies to “adopt and enforce company policies that prohibit all forms of discriminatory job advertisements based on gender.”

Tupperware Develops With NASA a Product For Growing Vegetables in Space

Do you know those plastic jars you use at home to store food? Well, now Tupperware Brands has developed, in partnership with NASA and TechShot, a space engineering company, a product exclusively dedicated to growing vegetables in space.

The product is called POND, an acronym for Passive Orbital Nutrient Delivery System and was developed with technology created on the International Space Station (ISS). The astronauts, in 2014, developed the “Veggie”, a system for planting consumable leaves and vegetables in space. From there, Tupperware began collaborating to create a product that used fewer resources for production, even in a hostile environment such as the space station.

Do you know those plastic jars you use at home to store food? Well, now Tupperware Brands has developed, in partnership with NASA and TechShot, a space engineering company, a product exclusively dedicated to growing vegetables in space.

The product is called POND, an acronym for Passive Orbital Nutrient Delivery System and was developed with technology created on the International Space Station (ISS). The astronauts, in 2014, developed the “Veggie”, a system for planting consumable leaves and vegetables in space. From there, Tupperware began collaborating to create a product that used fewer resources for production, even in a hostile environment such as the space station.

The POND works as follows: divided into two levels, the first being a lower black compartment where the plant is located, and the other is a removable transparent water control cover, which together functions as an equivalent space to Earth for plant cultivation. Six units were shipped to the ISS last week, along with SpaceX’s release of extras and equipment. Six others are already scheduled to ship next month.

The goal has always been to meet consumer needs, whether for microwave products or food processors that do not require electricity, and Tupperware Brands includes products that contribute to the growth of vegetation in space.

2018 is The Year of Artificial Intelligence in Household Equipment

Technology popularized by films like artificial intelligence, I Robot, and The Bicentennial Man, in which machines acquire human characteristics, Artificial Intelligence has emerged in recent years from the field of science fiction to real life. To get an idea of the industry’s potential, according to a research study by Research and Markets, the artificial intelligence solutions market will drive more than $23 billion by 2025, with a 44 percent annual growth rate.

For those who are not yet familiar with the term, it defines the area of computer science that aims to develop systems and equipment capable of simulating the human capacity to reason and consequently make decisions and perform tasks.

For those who are not yet familiar with the term, it defines the area of computer science that aims to develop systems and equipment capable of simulating the human capacity to reason and consequently make decisions and perform tasks.

At the last CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas, the world’s largest technology fair, artificial intelligence was one of the highlights of the event, showing that the technology is expected to hit home appliances and electronics in 2018. Companies like LG and Samsung they announced at the event equipment such as TVs, refrigerators, stoves and washing machines with the ability to “talk” to each other, respond to voice commands and even learn from users’ habits.

A practical example of the popularization of artificial intelligence in people’s everyday lives is voice-controlled smartphones such as Amazon Echo, priced at $40 in the United States. The device, which uses a personal assistant called Alexa, allows the user to talk to the device to ask him to find and say the items of a recipe to do at lunchtime, reveal the name of a song, read news, car and thousands of other things.

And we’ll see many other equipment manufacturers including Artificial Intelligence features in their equipment in the coming months. That’s because new platforms, such as NeuroPilot (which combines hardware, software, AI processing unit and software development kit), were announced at CES. With this, the creation of devices with artificial intelligence becomes much easier and cheaper for manufacturers.

In the case of MediaTek, which provides solutions for the creation of voice-controlled devices offered by Amazon, Google, Alibaba, and Baidu, among others, the newly released MT8516 chip will offer equipment developers and manufacturers artificial intelligence capabilities for from alarm clocks to fire alarms, among other devices for home use.

Do not be alarmed if you’re talking to your refrigerator or air conditioner right away. With integrated solutions, which offer equipment manufacturers greater processing capacity, for more affordable prices, soon you will have in your home equipment capable of listening to your wishes, doing what you say and even hitting a crumb.
