.What is ER (Entrepreneurial Revolution)? Searches show that ER is a curriculum for valuing trust and youth especially girls by changing systems of education and community development economics. ER was founded as a media challenge of leadership purpose and friendship across nations at The Economist as man was racing to the moon in the 1960s- it was based on the hypothesis that it would be wise to put a deadline on sustainability system design. At some stage failure to educate and invest in sustainability would become exponentially irreversible. A deadline of 2025-2030 was thought to be wise.

Ant Financial has already introduced Blockchain technology into a charitable donation service that it owns, with the aim of allowing users to track the money they send in a more charitable way.

Harnessing Artificial Intelligence to Target Conservation Efforts
The smartphone is the ultimate example of a universal computer. Apps transform the phone into different devices. Unfortunately, the computational revolution has done little for the sustainability of our Earth. Yet, sustainability problems are unique in scale and complexity, often involving significant computational challenges.

Teaching a Machine How to Imagine

We can train computers to learn to recognize objects by giving them millions of examples with the correct answers. A human baby, on the other hand, learns to recognize many concepts and objects all by themself simply by interacting with a few examples in the real world.

Using Cryptography to Redefine Legal Contracts and Public Records

Can we have agreements or the mechanisms for enforcing agreements between governments without having to appeal to the ambiguity of international law?

Language as a Signature of the Flexible Human Mind

To understand human nature, I focus on human language and what it can reveal about how we think. Unlike other animals, humans can communicate an infinite number of thoughts through language. And one reason that language is powerful is because we can use each of our words flexibly, with several different meanings.

Applying Algorithms to Minimize Risk

The United States plants more than 170 million acres of corn and soybeans a year, more than any country in the world. And the primary mechanism in the US that we use to subsidize agriculture is actually called the Federal Crop Insurance Program. So, the crop insurance program in the US is also the largest such program globally, with over $100 billion in liabilities annually. So it’s a very big program.

Mapping the Intricacies of Evolving Food Systems

In many countries, the very ability to eat a food like avocado is a direct benefit of international trade. We are eating on an interconnected planet. Food trade now shapes land use worldwide and is reshaping the food supplies of many nations.

Building Resilient Cities Through Restoration of Fragmented Urban Ecosystems

Cities form a vast global network connected by flows of energy, food, information. This global network is the challenge of the 21st century. How do we make more sustainable cities, with smaller ecological footprints and more equitable human wellbeing?

Decoding Workforce Productivity: Brian Ballard

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is ushering in a significant increase in connected machines, connected products. And at the same time, the people who are standing next to these highly sophisticated machines are ultimately connected in their home lives. They carry a cell phone that’s managing their smart car, their smart home, their smart systems. But they have almost no interaction with the systems at work.

Decoding Workforce Productivity: Benjamin Waber

I could ask you questions about where your customers buy products, or what sort of products they buy. And you could give me very detailed answers. But I could ask relatively similar questions about what goes on within your company that you can’t answer.

Decoding Workforce Productivity: Nita A. Farahany

Are there any limits to the connected workplace? Are there any concerns about the connected workplace? Is there any way in which you wouldn’t want either yourself or an employee to be connected? Are there any limits to the kinds of information we can gather in order to make our workforces more productive? In order to make our overall society more productive?
