BOSAGORA Unveils ‘VOTERA’, a Core System of Deliberative Democracy

0 Comments

BOSAGORA (Chairman: Kim In-hwan) announced on October 14, 2020, that it unveiled a video of visualizing ‘VOTERA’, a core system for processing democratic consensus by all members of the Parliamentary Network.

The first project that made the initial coin offering (ICO) in Korea, BOSAGORA is a decentralized democratic governance platform that builds the ecosystem by taking part in decision-making by participants who hold BOA coins more than a certain amount. BOSAGORA aims to ‘build a better world’ by providing blockchain technology and financial support to diversified projects through these decision-making processes.

The ‘VOTERA’ is a pivotal deliberative democracy system in drawing consensuses that are acceptable to all parties by taking part by every member in a fair and reasonable manner in entire processes of proposing projects, reviewing, discussing and voting on proposals as well as for deciding adoption of such proposals.

Participants can propose and assess new projects through ‘VOTERA’, and the implementation of projects will be decided after voting when assessment results exceed certain criteria. Any member of the Parliamentary Network of BOSAGORA is allowed to vote as he or she is awarded a voting right per 1 node.

“‘VOTERA’ is a visible outcome that advanced a step closer toward completing a platform of a core system that realizes deliberative democracy being pursued by the BOSAGORA platform,” said Kim In-hwan, Chairman of BOSAGORA. “We will continue to exert efforts to attract profitable businesses and expand the ecosystem that can increase the value of BOA, leveraging their performances.”

JAXJOX, the Redmond, Wash.-based fitness technology company, has raised $10 million in a new funding round to help pay for the research and development of its signature InteractiveStudio workout equipment.

The Series A round included investors Dowgate Capital Ltd. and entrepreneur Nigel Wray, and brings total funding to $17 million for the 3-year-old company.

JAXJOX is getting set to release its InteractiveStudio smart gym, a home fitness system that includes digitally adjustable weights, AI-enabled connected tech built into the equipment, and live and on-demand classes.

With connected tech built into individual pieces of free-weight equipment, such as a smart kettlebell, users don’t have to stand a certain distance from a screen to have form and motion tracked.

“By monitoring performance metrics and using AI, we can give users a more holistic view of their health and provide recommendations on improving their wellbeing,” founder and CEO Stephen Owusu said in a news release. “We believe that, for users, tracking power generated while lifting will become as important as tracking your heart rate while running.”

The InteractiveStudio is available for pre-order on the JAXJOX website and retails for $2,199 with a $39 monthly subscription. The system will also sell as part of an exclusive retail partnership this fall with Best Buy.

Groundbreaking AI Software Highlighted by Gartner As “Bringing AI Closer to Human Learning and Intelligence”  

Company’s Stealth Mode Successes Include Tens of Millions in Revenue, Long-Term Contracts & Partnerships with the World’s Largest Consultancies & Fortune 500 Clients

BlackSwan Technologies launches as the world’s first enterprise AI operating system, enabling any company to leverage the most advanced artificial intelligence for an unprecedented level of operational efficiency and data-driven decision making. Since it began offering its technology to a limited customer base earlier this year, BlackSwan Technologies has generated tens of millions of dollars in revenue through multi-year contracts with many leading businesses. The company has also established a groundbreaking partnership with Deloitte to provide leading global banks an AI-powered platform that is already proven to increase revenue and drive efficiencies.

BlackSwan Technologies was recently recognized in Gartner’s 2020 Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies report as a pioneer in “bringing AI closer to human learning and intelligence.” The company’s signature Platform as a Service (PaaS), ELEMENT, accomplishes this by combining multiple AI technologies — including machine learning, natural language processing, deep learning, neural network and data operation facilities — into a single platform.

Unlike other enterprise AI offerings, ELEMENT does not require well-organized data sets, countless hours of data normalization or technical in-house expertise to implement. ELEMENT’s Low code/No code, cloud-agnostic system includes several advanced enterprise applications including for Risk Management, Compliance, Lead Generation, Personalization and Market Intelligence. The platform also allows users to build enterprise applications up to 60 times faster and at a fraction of the cost of market alternatives. ELEMENT is designed to continuously learn and evolve with the enterprise and has a completely customizable structure with a simple, drag-and-drop interface, democratizing the development and execution of large, industrial enterprise applications.

Cloud-based Administrative System Powers Up VUMC’s Allied Health Programs, Automates Admissions & Regulatory Compliance Reporting


OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – October 13, 2020 – (Newswire.com)

​On the heels of a rigorous two-year process, Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) has selected Orbund’s Einstein Student Information System (SIS) for its Allied Health program, Orbund LLC announced today. VUMC Center for Programs in Allied Health (CPiAH) expects to be fully implemented on Orbund’s enterprise administrative software in February 2021.

“We serve a rapidly growing segment of healthcare,” said Dr. Geoffrey Fleming, who oversaw the student information system project in his role as Vice President of Continuous Professional Development (Pediatric Critical Care). “Allied health programs like ours have particular demands in admissions, attendance and regulatory compliance.”

Part of Vanderbilt University Medical Center, CPiAH prepares its students for high demand, technical careers, such as diagnostic medical sonography, neurodiagnostic technology, nuclear medicine, and perfusion.

“Our faculty takes its commitment to transformative learning to heart,” said Ebony McHaskell, CPiAH’s interim director. “We sought an administrative technology that seems in sync with our mission and objectives. Orbund came forward with the necessary features built on a cloud-based system.”

“We see in CPiAH the excellence of Vanderbilt, combined with its own sense of urgency and purpose in healthcare,” said Arif Joarder, CEO of Orbund. “It is a great honor and responsibility to roll out our system, so that CPiAH and its students can quickly take advantage of what it has to offer.”

The implementation of Orbund’s Einstein product, an integrated system of portals for students, faculty and administrators, is currently underway at CPiAH. The easy to use interfaces and configurable design of Einstein enable an institution like CPiAH to put it into full use weeks or a few months—rather than many months or even years often required with its competitors’
