MTC Show: Earthquake Disaster, Chinese Spy Balloons, and Elevating AI Developments
Plus 7 other mobility tech & connectivity headlines and developments
We live in a world that is constantly evolving due to advances in technology - from artificial intelligence (AI) being used for everything from medical diagnosis to autonomous vehicles - so it's important that we stay informed about these changes.
In this week’s episode of the Mobility Tech & Connectivity Show, we will explore how tech giants are elevating AI development, including a relatively new AI search engine that you control. We also will have a look at the earthquake disasters impacting Turkey and Syria, as well as China’s spy balloon that was shot down by US military forces.
In addition, with 14 years of facilitating decentralized, peer-to-peer transactions, Bitcoin has established its resiliency as a security even in the face of multiple bans from the Chinese government. The cryptocurrency could be a compelling addition to an investor’s portfolio, especially as the overall market appears to be rallying from a cyclical low.
Crypto and traditional markets have recently shown a positive correlation, but some expect that this may change in 2023. Tech stock valuations that produced outsized returns since 2020 appear to have been particularly driven by the shift in social interactions due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Some believe the returns posted by these assets were also quickly reversed as Covid-19 restrictions began to lift.
As the world gradually returns to normal, these assets will potentially no longer benefit from low interest rates, increasing money supply, and speculative pandemic use-cases. Meanwhile, the value proposition for decentralized, immutable networks remains unchanged, making digital assets an attractive alternative for investors seeking returns in a bullish market.
Back to AI, major tech companies such as Google and Amazon have been investing heavily into AI research and development projects over the past few years with no signs of slowing down anytime soon; so this week on the show we will discuss what kind of impact their efforts could have on society overall both now and into the future, beginning with a relatively new AI-driven tool called You.com - "The Search Engine You Control" which promises users more control than ever before when searching online content for information or entertainment purposes alike!
