Established Companies Aggressively Target IoT and AI
April 29, 2019 -- InvestorsHub NewsWire -- Microcap Speculators -- A growing number of companies are using technologies such as internet-of-things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) to expand their digital presence, taking on IT majors and global diversified conglomerates which are also aggressively muscling into this space.
One way they’re achieving this is through M&A, so it’s wise to keep your eye on smaller companies developing tech in the sectors.
That’s why we’re highlighting an upstart AI company that is public - Gopher Protocol Inc. (USOTC: GOPH). GOPH had an enormously productive first quarter. The company released their AI enabled app based on modern AI technologies including Deep Neural Network (DNN), vectorization and other advanced methodologies enabling usage for wide variety of applications. The company has followed that up this past week announcing it successfully completed testing on their Alpha version of its global mesh network technology platform GopherInsight™ which is the company’s IoT component. It just announced it has received an International Search Report and Written Opinion pertaining to its Gopher Radio Token application from the International Searching Authority under the Patent Cooperation Treaty. All claims under the Opinion have been found to be novel and have "inventive step" (i.e., to be non-obvious). Gopher intends to use its Avant! AI technology to govern security and vast data processing for the GRT. This opens an entire world of possibilities that are enabled by a powerful artificial intelligence system. This is the kind of company which security and engineering decision makers at $1 billion firms are starting to pay attention, so now would be a great time to start your research on GOPH.
Today we are highlighting: Gopher Protocol Inc. (USOTC: GOPH), Phunware, Inc. (PHUN), Snap, Inc. (NYSE: SNAP), Square, Inc. (NYSE: SQ), and Western Digital Corp. (NASDAQ: WDC).
Gopher Protocol Inc. (USOTC: GOPH) (Market Cap: $60.625M; Share Price: $0.2923)’s Avant! AI mobile app is synchronized with the Avant! AI web application (www.avant-ai.net) and is equipped with personalization and additional features to make it a handy artificial general intelligence (AGI) agent for the benefit of users. Avant! AI is an artificial intelligence system that is capable of processing vast amounts of data efficiently and quickly. Avant! AI is based on modern AI technologies including Deep Neural Network (DNN), vectorization and other advanced methodologies enabling usage for wide variety of applications. The current release of Avant! AI is targeting AGI to perform information search and retrieval. The new mobile application enables question/answer capability for general topics. Avant! AI searches for online information, sorting out the best answer and recording it under a personal account. The system keeps a history of any user's question/answer data for future use and includes a search mechanism to retrieve previous topics.
The company’s GopherInsight™ global mesh network technology platform for both mobile and fixed solutions was tested in both laboratory and outdoor conditions, and all tests were successful. "We are glad to announce the completion of our MESH system, Alpha version. The system has successfully passed all lab and field testing as scheduled with satisfactory results," commented Danny Rittman, Gopher’s Chief Technology Officer. "The tests covered essential topics that included hardware and software to ensure high performance and reliable features and characteristics.”
Mr. Rittman continued, “We used a mobile app to visualize results and to produce vital data like nodes/gateways range, GEO location and coverage area. The system was tested both outdoors and indoors. This data will be used to debug the Alpha version and initiate any changes or modifications that may be needed to produce a Beta version with the goal of ensuring commercial standards. We are already evaluating real-life projects to be a case study for our MESH system, which will use prototypes in real-life situations. The study will cover the system's GEO tracking, emergency alerts and further advanced capabilities." The next step to be taken by Gopher in this process is to optimize its Alpha version in order to proceed to Beta. Gopher is already evaluating potential projects as commercial application case study opportunities.
