Investing in Artificial Intelligence (AI); Making Lives Safer, More Convenient

Investing in Artificial Intelligence (AI); Making Lives Safer, More Convenient

Companies Mentioned: Intel (NASDAQ: $INTC), Gopher Protocol (OTCQB: $GOPH), Alphabet Inc. ($GOOG), ($GOOGL)

Point Roberts, WA - January 29, 2018 – (www.investorideas.com newswire) Investorideas.com, a global news source covering leading technology sectors including  Artificial Intelligence (AI) reports on new developments, studies and research resources for investors and consumers to understand and embrace what’s next in this evolving technology.  

Companies mentioned include Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: GOPH), Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) and Alphabet Inc. (GOOG), (GOOGL); all using AI to make our lives safer and more convenient.


According to a report last year by Grand View Research, Inc., the global artificial intelligence market is expected to reach just under USD 36 billion by 2025 from its direct revenue sources, growing at a CAGR of 57.2% from 2017 to 2025, whereas it is expected to garner around USD 58.9 billion by 2025 from its enabled revenue arenas.

Money is pouring into the sector according to a recent report from KPMG noting, “Artificial intelligence and machine learning saw a massive $4.1 billion in investment in Q4 '17, compared to $3.1 billion in Q3 '17.”* 

But to invest in the sector or buy products as a consumer, education is key to eliminate the fear of machine learning and robots.

A great resource to track, evaluate and understand AI is ‘The Stanford 100 Year Study on AI’. The AI Index is an initiative to track, collate, distill and visualize data relating to artificial intelligence. https://aiindex.org/ (2017 report PDF: http://cdn.aiindex.org/2017-report.pdf)

An excerpt from the full report from Daniela Rus, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in a note, ‘AI, a Vector for Positive Change’, explains it on a simple personal level of what to expect next and how AI technology can be embraced and not feared.

“On a global scale, AI will help us generate better insights into addressing some of our biggest challenges: understanding climate change by collecting and analyzing data from vast wireless sensor networks that monitor the oceans, the greenhouse climate, and the plant condition; improving governance by data-driven decision making; eliminating hunger by monitoring, matching and re-routing supply and demand, and predicting and responding to natural disasters using cyber-physical sensors. It will help us democratize education through MOOC offerings that are adaptive to student progress, and ensure that every child gets access to the skills needed to get a good job and build a great life. It may even help those kids turn their childhood dreams into reality, as Iron Man stops being a comic book character and becomes a technological possibility.

On a local scale, AI will offer opportunities to make our lives safer, more convenient, and more satisfying. That means automated cars that can drive us to and from work, or prevent life-threatening accidents when our teenagers are at the wheel. It means customized healthcare, built using knowledge gleaned from enormous amounts of data. And counter to common knowledge, it means more satisfying jobs, not less, as
the productivity gains from AI and robotics free us up from monotonous tasks and let us focus on the creative, social, and high-end tasks that computers are incapable of.”

Danny Rittman, CTO of Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: GOPH), a company incorporating AI technology into its Guardian ORB Pet Tracker to keep pets safe, recently told Investor Ideas,   “We are very excited that this week is the official launch our Indiegogo (https://www.indiegogo.com/) campaign for our proprietary pet tracking device. The main purpose of our product is to create ease of mind for pet owners, knowing they can track their pets on a 24/7 basis. The technology can track patterns and routines and immediately notify pet owners if something is out of the pet’s normal range.”    

He also went on to talk about the bigger picture for AI and advanced technology within the company.  “As the first product, the Guardian ORB, is entering its commercial stage, we are also working in parallel on the second stage of Guardian Tracking technology; a full-duplex, private, secured, MESH network. The Guardian ORB system already includes an initial MESH approach by enabling exponentially extended coverage by Gopher gateway units. Each gateway unit is capable of receiving any mobile unit GEO transmission in its vicinity and transmitting it to its user's mobile app. In this way, as many gateways are sold, the reception coverage is automatically expanding, creating virtually unlimited PRIVATE coverage.” 

“Gopher’s second stage will enable a secured MESH network between mobile units, in addition to their gateways units, expanding a private, secured network worldwide. The second generation system will include the newest RF and micro-processing technology. As Gopher continues to evolve our IoT technology (based on GopherInsight™ technology), we are constantly adding more segments to the private, secured infrastructure, to ultimately create a worldwide, GopherNET network for global overage. Once and if achieved, this will open “the world” for Gopher and its GopherNET members.”

Video: CTO of Gopher (OTCQB: GOPH) Talks about Artificial Intelligence

Intel (NASDAQ: INTC), one of the leaders in AI says, “Bringing artificial intelligence to the edge opens exciting new innovations across our lives, from personal safety and transportation to sports and entertainment. Critical to these innovations is the real-time understanding of the world around us. We see this with security cameras, drones and cell phones, and it will offer the foundation for autonomous driving’s future. These devices collect visual data – images and video – and analyze it for fast insights.”

At the 2018 International Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich announced a three-year partnership with Ferrari North America that will bring the power of artificial intelligence to the Ferrari Challenge North America Series, one of three geographically diverse championship series. Beginning this year, race broadcasts will use Intel artificial intelligence technologies including the Intel® Xeon® Scalable platform and the neon™ Framework to enhance the motorsports experience for spectators and illustrate the potential of artificial intelligence for transforming the future of motorsports.

Human analysts are creatures of habit – they check the same handful of metrics over and over, which is further limited by time. Artificial intelligence can automatically recognize and identify subtle variations that may go unnoticed by a human analyst.

In addition to the partnership with Ferrari North America, Intel made several other announcements that showcase how the company is leveraging data to drive innovation. This includes substantial new details on Intel’s autonomous vehicle platform as well as new advancements in virtual reality (VR) and other forms of immersive media.

Another innovator in the sector Alphabet Inc. (GOOG), (GOOGL), explains its diverse entrenchment in AI technology on a personal note,   “Our mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful, and AI is enabling us to do that in incredible new ways - solving problems for our users, our customers, and the world.

AI makes it easier for you to do things every day, whether it’s searching for photos of people you love, breaking down language barriers, or helping you get things done with your own personal digital assistant. But it’s also providing us with new ways of looking at old problems and helping transform how we work and live, and we think the biggest impact will come when everyone can access it.”  https://ai.google/

The take-away is that AI is here and growing exponentially and entering most aspects of our day-to-day lives and the only way to embrace it is to educate ourselves along the way.

CEO of #GopherProtocol (OTCQB: $GOPH) and Founder/CEO of #Spare Discuss Acquisition Synergies for SPARE #PaymentTechnology that Turns any Cash Register into an ATM

Companies Mentioned: Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: $GOPH), PayPal Holdings ( $PYPL), Apple ( $AAPL), SAMSUNG ( $SSNNF)



Point Roberts, WA, January 22, 2018 – ( www.investorideas.com newswire) Investorideas.com, a global news source covering leading sectors including payments and cryptocurrency issues exclusive Q&A commentary with Gregory Bauer, CEO of Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: GOPH) and D’ontra Hughes, Founder and CEO of  Spare (https://gotspare.com) following news Gopher has entered an initial agreement term to acquire 50% of Spare CS Inc.

Spare is a mobile ATM network platform using new paradigms and software to provide unique financial services to the unbanked and underbanked, as well as adding convenience to the banked population. The SPARE mobile network simplifies safe access to money by employing a unique security system to create convenient access to cash from virtual currency to the "real" world.



Gregory and D’ontra discuss why this recent acquisition marries the two companies business models synergistically and how the end result allows Gopher access to millions of new customers for their products and services.

Interview: D’ontra Hughes, Founder and CEO of Spare

Q: Investorideas.com
D’ontra, can you explain how the Spare App works and  provides convenience for consumers creating cash on the go; acting as an ATM  in multiple locations?

A: D’ontra Hughes, Founder and CEO of Spare
As a user, you can choose from multiple payment options within the wallet section to fund your SPARE account. Once funds have been uploaded, you can make a request to one of our merchant locations which will grow to just over 15,000 locations within the next year. The user goes to the location, presents phone with secure code; they are given cash and they are on their way.


Q: Investorideas.com
What is your current customer and retail base and what scale-up capabilities do you have to grow the App?

A: D’ontra Hughes, Founder and CEO of Spare
SPARE has a little over 10,000 users; MAU ~20%, -2500 locations. As the company engages with Gopher we will see registration of users climb to just over 300,000 and are expecting the same MAU, perhaps a little higher, boasting over 15,000 locations.


Q: Investorideas.com
Can you talk about the partnerships with PayPal, Apple and Samsung and how users can connect their accounts to Spare and access various virtual currencies?

A: D’ontra Hughes, Founder and CEO of Spare
SPARE does not have a “partnership” with any of the companies above. However, we utilize their publically available API to facilitate transactions. One of the primary benefits of the partnership with Gopher is that they will be a wallet solution that will allow for a greater range of access to the un/under-banked community. We see great possibility in the growth of SPARE’s initial offering to this base of users as the partnership matures.


Interview: Gregory Bauer, CEO of Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: GOPH)

Q: Investorideas.com
Greg, can you share why you targeted the Spare acquisition and what synergies you saw between the two companies?

A: Gregory Bauer, CEO of Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: GOPH)
As the technology acceptance among our targeted demographic grows in the virtual card space and the need to constantly be looking for reasons to help our customers creates door swings, we see SPARE and its products as a way to help us make our technology offering so compelling to our customers, it has a net effect that it is all positive for all parties customers; for theirs and ours.  As for the future benefit to rolling out other new GOPH technology on our network, this should help create a solid proven network and with reliability and security within every transaction.


Q: Investorideas.com
In terms of the previously announced encryption technology Gopher has developed, how do you see integrating that to add another level of security to the Spare App?

A: Gregory Bauer, CEO of Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: GOPH)
We are working on Spare being part of our Beta Encryption project to help us to define its commercial and monetizing potential for the future.  We currently have in the works an end-to-end solution that should help in the security of all types of transaction and data downloads across many different platforms.


Q: Investorideas.com
In terms of growing your customer base and introducing Gopher’s products to a completely new customer base, how do you see this rolling out?

A: Gregory Bauer, CEO of Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: GOPH)
GOPH owns 100% of UGOHUB a retail distribution point for all things prepaid as well as a point of distribution of private label cellular Accessory lines.  Along with these agreements with our customers, we control and supply all of POS onsite and the marketing onsite surrounding these types of products and store initiatives.  We have access to all types of data allowing us direct marking access points from the POS, with both the in-store and web campaigns and the social media side of things. I believe the convenience of Spare adds to the products we have and our strength will be in being able to highlight Spare as one of the most convent products that a consumer can use.
