Beyond Imagination’s New Humanoid Robot Will Connect People Coast to Coast Physically

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

NEW YORK, Apr 22, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Beyond Imagination, Inc. is building humanoid robots to solve the world's labor crisis by expanding access to jobs around the globe.

This week, the Beomni robot will appear at Explorers Club Headquarters and at the annual dinner on Saturday April 23rd in New York City. At the same time, across the country in Beverly Hills, CA, attendees at the Abundance360 Annual Summit will be able to remotely pilot the robot from 2,800 miles away.

Beomni is the world's most sophisticated general-purpose humanoid robot, capable of performing an almost unlimited number of tasks. Beomni's AI Brain learns from its human pilots and becomes increasingly autonomous over time.

Beomni will help solve the labor crisis by creating a global elastic labor force, lifting millions of people out of poverty by giving them access to jobs around the world. For example, the International Labour Organization (ILO) reports that "More than 2.3 million workers die every year as a result of occupational accidents or work-related diseases." With Beomni, dangerous work will become completely safe because the robot will be the one taking the risks.

Elder Care is a $932B market today. We will help solve the elder crisis by enabling families to care for their own regardless of the distance between them and by multiplying the effectiveness of existing health care workers.

CEO and Founder Dr. Harry Kloor says, "We are thrilled to have been invited to demonstrate the advances we've made in Beomni's development at the Explorers Club. Beomni will be a great vehicle for explorers on earth and beyond! We share the spirit of exploration and discovery that is the hallmark of the Explorers Club."

Astronaut and Explorers Club President Richard Garriott adds, "For the last decade, I have been a power USER of early telepresence robotics devices, so I deeply appreciate the advancements in Beomni. We welcome the opportunity to showcase Dr. Kloor's creation alongside other world-changing technologies at our event. Smart technologies like Beomni will play an important part in helping solve the challenges the world is facing. On Earth, in space and on planets beyond Earth, robots like Beomni will play an essential role!"

The robot will be on display all week at the Explorers Club headquarters so members can have an opportunity to pilot it. On Saturday, Beomni will move to The Glass House, where the annual dinner is being held. Beomni will be serving drinks and hors d'oeuvres at the reception, and at the afterparty guests will also have the opportunity to pilot the robot.

Meanwhile, across the country in Beverly Hills, a second Beyond Imagination team will be set up at the Abundance360 Annual Summit. From there, Beomni will be operated from coast to coast. Members in attendance at the A360 Summit will be able to perform tasks, pick up and examine objects and even shake someone's hand across the country.

Abundance360 Founder, Peter Diamandis remarked, "Beyond Imagination dramatically changes the paradigm of how companies will provide services in the future, how and where you will receive healthcare, where you work and play."

About Beyond Imagination, Inc.

Beyond Imagination is a robotics and AI platform company that is focused on bringing humanoid robots to market rapidly. By partnering a human pilot with an evolving AI Brain, we will soon be able to deploy our Beomni Robotics platform across a wide range of commercial applications. Our practical, real-world approach is closer to that of Tesla, which released its vehicles and then built AI from the data that they collected, rather than that of other companies that are focused on narrow R&D domains.

Founded by leading innovators in AI and robotics, and strengthened by a solid patent portfolio, Beyond Imagination, Inc. is poised to revolutionize life and fundamentally change the way we work, travel and engage with others around the world.

Beyond Imagination is actively seeking business partners and investors for its Series A round. Details will be provided to qualified investors upon request. In-person demos are available by appointment for media and investors. Beyond Imagination is also seeking additional partners for pilot studies in medicine and beyond.

About The Explorers Club

Since its inception in 1904, members of the Club have traversed the earth, the seas, the skies, and even the moon, on expeditions. First to the North Pole, first to the South Pole, first to the summit of Mount Everest, first to the deepest point in the ocean and first to the surface of the moon - all accomplished by Explorers Club Members. Notable members include Teddy Roosevelt, Neil Armstrong, Jane Goodall, Edmund Hillary, John Glenn, Sally Ride, Bob Ballard, and more. https://www.explorers.org/

Microsoft, Databricks and 10+ leading giants unleashed their Data Analytics solutions at BYTES 2022

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

Singapore, Apr 22, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Amidst skyscraping digitization drives in Southeast Asia, its digital economy is projected to hit $1 trillion by 2030. With colossal volumes of data being generated every second, the region is breeding a multi-billion-dollar Big Data Analytics industry.

Taking cue from the above developments, all the while trying to support the Big Data Analytics organizations in the region, Tradepass hosted BYTES for the first time in ASEAN, virtually on 12 - 13 April 2022.

"While explaining the massive growth in data, Karthikeyan Rajasekharan (Senior Director, Data and AI Solution, Sales - APAC, Microsoft APAC) mentioned, "As we went through that journey, we recognized that we needed a modern data estate and we have moved from our value licensing days which had the smallest transaction between $400+ dollars to a place in the cloud where the smallest transaction is anywhere between $3 to $4, which means there has been sheer amount of growth in the data and now we need to think about how we have to modernize ourselves."

The 2-day virtual summit hosted 1000+ Big Data Analytics professionals from the leading public and private organizations across ASEAN which included the CDOs, CXOs, CIOs, CTOs, CMOs, Heads of IT, Data Scientists and many other senior profiles.

Chris D'Agostino, Global Field CTO, Databricks, spoke in great detail on transforming organizations by enabling data and AI at scale. During his presentation, he expressed, "When we did a survey in partnership with MIT Technology Review, we studied 351 companies around the globe, a third of which were here in APJ, and the number one regret that most data leaders had was that they didn't standardize using open standards. Instead, they chose proprietary capabilities and felt locked into a particular vendor or solution."

Microsoft, Databricks, Dataiku, Cloudera, Tech Data, BMC, Aerospike, H2O.ai, Vertica, Domo, Denodo, Snowflake and Fivetran were literally the face of the summit as they had their own exclusive virtual exhibition booth to showcase their cutting-edge solutions. Some of them even gave insightful sessions during the conference on the most pressing topics which included 'Data Stewardship', 'How To Formulate and Implement a Winning AI Strategy', 'Hybrid Data Cloud', "From AI Experimentation to AI Monetization', 'Accelerating Data-Driven Outcomes with DataOps & Cloud' and many more.

While enlightening the delegates on Hybrid Data Cloud, Carlos Zorzin (Senior Partner Sales Engineer, Cloudera) commented, "89% of IT-decision makers believe a hybrid cloud environment is the optimal choice to easily and securely store and move data as well as manage workloads. In order to achieve that, companies need a data platform that lets them easily move data and workloads from private clouds, to public clouds, and even to the edge - with scale. That's Hybrid Data Cloud."

When asked about the response from the delegates, Sudhir Jena, the organizer and CEO of Tradepass said, "Bytes 2022 - ASEAN delighted the 1000+ delegates with the top-line of solution providers and experts from the public & private domain and the delegates had very insightful interactions including Q&As with the experts. The delegates also got a chance to explore the latest solutions from the stellar organizations at the summit and collaborate with them to leapfrog their competitors."

Heroes of Arcan, the DAO-Powered Heroic Fantasy Play-to-Earn Game, Announces Upcoming Token Sale

Tallinn, Estonia, Apr 22, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Heroes of Arcan, an upcoming play-to-earn epic heroic fantasy game that aims to place the destiny of the world of Arcan in the hands of players for both in-game action and development is set to launch a token and NFT sale event in Q2 2022 that will allow players to participate in the development of the world of Arcan and access ARCAN tokens prior to launch.

Of 100 million ARCAN tokens minted on the WAX blockchain, 14 percent will be reserved for the Heroes of Arcan play-to-earn model, 6 percent to a private sale underway in Q2 2022, and 12.5 percent for the public token sale. A further 24 percent will be held in reserve in a community wallet and used to reward players and ARCAN token holders that stake in the Heroes of Arcan DAO.

Heroes of Arcan, founded by Thomas Gio, is set to launch in mid-Q3 2022. Further information on the Heroes of Arcan project and token sale can be found via socials.

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

The play-to-earn gaming industry has created an NFT-fuelled revolution over the last year. Over the course of 2022, play-to-earn games saw over $4.5 billion in trading volume transacted through blockchain-based games across over 754,000 daily active wallets.

Many of the play-to-earn games available to players today, however, lack the narrative and multiplayer community features associated with games within the mainstream gaming market. In many cases, play-to-earn games place a strong emphasis on generating potentially valuable NFT-based game elements that can be sold for a profit through in-game or secondary markets for cryptocurrency.

Heroes of Arcan aims to disrupt the contemporary play-to-earn paradigm with an epic narrative-rich heroic strategy game that pits players against each other within a vibrant, evolving fantasy universe. Drawing from strategic resource and territory management games, MMOs, and hero-focused elements of MOBA games, Heroes of Arcan is positioned to bring the "play" back into the "play-to-earn" model.

Building the First Player-Driven Epic Fantasy Game DAO

Heroes of Arcan launches players into the fantasy world of Arcan, in which players join factions and compete over territory fractured by conflict, war, and magical catastrophes of world-ending proportions. The world of Arcan is represented by 20,000 individual land pieces, each of which is an NFT — players collect sources, build tools, and capture land in order to create structures and collect Heroes.

The epic fantasy narrative of Heroes of Arcan provides play-to-earn gamers with far more than a means of generating profit from their playtime — Heroes of Arcan developers have made a concerted effort to create a vivid world in which their players are able to form alliances, create and execute novel strategies, and create teams of powerful heroes.

While Heroes of Arcan integrates many of the features expected of a strategy play-to-earn game, such as upgradable equipment, structures and tools, harvestable resources, and in-game marketplaces that allow players to trade with one another, a number of unique social and governance features make Heroes of Arcan a highly disruptive presence within the play-to-earn market.

Dynamic Peer-to-Peer Marketplace Reinvents Play-to-Earn Model

The resources, heroes, territory, and other gameplay elements of the Heroes of Arcan universe can be freely traded by players through an in-game marketplace. The way in which Heroes of Arcan handles trading in-game, however, functions very differently from the static, centralized models found in many other play-to-earn games.

Rather than operate in a vertical manner, the Heroes of Arcan economy integrates an organic growth model that promotes player-driven economic evolution and prevents economic imbalance. Arcanium, Heroes of Arcan's in-game currency, is represented by the ARCAN token, placing control over the flow of value in the world of Arcan in the hands of players.

Transactions and trades made with ARCAN in Heroes of Arcan are subject to a tax, which forwards a part of fees paid by players using in-game marketplaces to a community wallet. ARCAN held in this community pool is used to reward players that stake ARCAN in order to participate in the Heroes of Arcan DAO.

Heroes of Arcan allows players to interact directly with the governance and development of the universe of Arcan by implementing a Decentralized Autonomous Organization model — players that stake ARCAN not only receive rewards from the community wallet, but can also propose and vote on changes that will affect the destiny of Heroes of Arcan.

The Heroes of Arcan economic model is supported by a horizontal gameplay system that ensures new players are able to gain a footing in the competitive world of Arcan, eliminating the centralization of resources and in-game power that occurs in other play-to-earn games.

Social interaction plays an important role in the world of Heroes of Arcan. New players of Heroes of Arcan choose a faction — the diplomatic Preachers, the warlike Conquerers, or the magically adept Wiser — to align with. Each faction is represented by a continent in the world of Arcan. Players in each faction are able to communicate with each other in dedicated Discord servers, opening the door to the formation of player alliances and guilds - or betrayal.

Economic sustainability within Heroes of Arcan is driven by additional features that will include mini-games, seasonal events, and territory updates. Early stages of the game offer power and economic scaling through resource collection, but later updates will provide players with the opportunity to improve and level up heroes, lands, tools, and equipment, create potions and enchantments, or build new architecture elements to add additional layers of economic complexity.

Robust Story-Driven Gameplay

The lore that drives the gameplay within Heroes of Arcan provides players with a far more compelling storytelling experience than any other play-to-earn game on the market. Heroes of Arcan developers provide a robust narrative and history behind the world of Arcan, launching players into a world in which three factions compete for territorial dominance.

Heroes offer players a powerful way to gain passive benefits when collecting resources, as well as a means of exploring new territory and gaining access to randomized loot drops through chests.

Cornell Blockchain Club’s 2nd Annual Conference, ‘Web3 Going Mainstream,’ Set to Kick off

Ithaca, NY, Apr 18, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Cornell Blockchain Club's 2nd Annual Conference, "Web3 Going Mainstream," is set to kick off Friday, April 22nd at Roosevelt's Island in NYC. The one-day event serves to highlight how Web3 is simultaneously transcending institutional, academic, and corporate spheres.

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

In attendance will be the world's leading industry professionals, researchers, and firms, including John Wu (President of Ava Labs), Arwin Holmes (EY Global Blockchain CTO), Joe Conyers (Head of NFTs at Crypto.com), Algorand, FTX, Chainalysis, Gemini, Messari, DyDx, and many more.

This year's agenda is split into four parts: DeFi, NFTs, Regulation, and Institutions, which all have a large role to play in "Web3 Going Mainstream."

There is no university blockchain club better to host this event than Cornell's. In 2019, Cornell Blockchain Club hosted their first annual Blockchain conference which was deemed a success after 250+ attendees came to hear Emin Gun Sirer (Founder/CEO of Ava Labs), Sam Cassatt (CSO at Consensys), Kathleen Breitman (Co-Founder of Tezos) and many more speak. In fact, it was such a success that the members got to ring the Nasdaq bell.

Additionally, Cornell University has an extensive history with the development of Web3. Founded in 2017, Cornell Blockchain Club was the nation's first official university blockchain club. Since then, Cornell was named #1 University in the world for Crypto Education in 2019 by Coinbase, has created a semester-long undergraduate class with over 130 students, and has cultivated project teams who have done things like creating a Uniswap Arbitrage Bot and conducting research for the Web3 Foundation.

PLS Plantations rated Silver3 by RAM Sustainability

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

KUALA LUMPUR, Apr 18, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - PLS Plantations Berhad today announced their receipt of Silver3 ratings by RAM Sustainability for its principal plantations and trading segments, reflecting some gaps and the early stages of the Company's ESG practices that are crucial for reforestation and plantation-related sectors.

The sustainability ratings by RAM Sustainability, a leading provider of independent ESG analytics, captures the Company's corporate sustainability performance based on all the environmental, social and governance (ESG) themes, as well as relevant international and domestic guidelines by Bank Negara Malaysia's (BNM) Climate Change and Principle-based Taxonomy (CCPT).

PLS Plantations' Independent Non-Executive Chairman, Tan Sri Nazir Razak said, "This rating sets the baseline for the Company, in providing clear forward strategy in terms of our priorities and focus areas, across our business and operations, especially in areas for improvement. Equally as important, it offers our stakeholders - investors, regulators, business partners, suppliers, and clients - an objective and transparent assessment of our commitment to sustainability and responsibility as a reliable supplier, business partner, and an employer. PLS Plantations is working hard to execute against our strategy towards becoming Malaysia's leading sustainable, agrofood provider in the coming years."

RAM Sustainability's Chief Executive Officer, Promod Dass said, "PLS Plantations is establishing a starting point for its ESG journey by subjecting itself to the rigors of a sustainability rating and positioning that transparency is a priority even though it points to its high ESG risk profile - for this it must be commended, and we look forward to monitor its sustainability progress. We hope that this will set a precedent for more companies to embark on their sustainability journey and aspire to achieve the highest ratings."

As part of the Company's turnaround journey, PLS demonstrates strong commitment to expand on its corporate governance framework and policies, especially in areas of sustainability governance, pending a dedicated group-wide framework and policies to govern the Company. As a Public-Private-Partnership (PPP), PLS Plantations' vision is to contribute to the nation's food security and positive socioeconomic impact through initiatives in supporting local farmers, specifically the B40 and indigenous communities. The Company commits to produce quality products and services evidenced by the various certifications obtained such as the Malaysian Sustainable Palm Oil (MSPO) Certification for its plantation segment. The Company's trading business has received Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), Malaysia Good Agricultural Practices (myGAP), HALAL and Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) certifications, among others and has dedicated policies to manage human resource and human rights including the Good Social Practices Policy, Occupational Safety and Health Policy, Child Labour Policy and Sexual Harassment Policy.

Top Data and Analytics Players from ASEAN to Assemble for the 3rd Global Edition of World Data & Analytics Show

Singapore, Apr 13, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - The 3rd global edition of World Data & Analytics Show, with a special focus on the ASEAN market, is all set to take place virtually on 19 April 2022. The event will gather top experts from ASEAN region where they will shed insights on analytics to improve an organization's operational performance, boost consumer engagement, and simplify supply chains.

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

Notable speakers include Celine Le Cotonnec, Vincent Toh, Hartnell Ndungi, Juan Intan Kanggrawan, Benedict Benoit, Bhaskar Vetrimani, Dr. Shidan C Murphy, Sam Majid, Bhaskar Vetrimani, Meenakshi Nissim Ghoge, Balaji Jayaraman, Martijn Wieriks, Ram Kumar & more. These experts will present eye-opening keynotes, government and enterprise use-case presentations, exciting product showcases, take part in panel discussions and tech talks to discuss the latest challenges and explore data-powered solutions.

Businesses in the ASEAN region are embracing data analytics to help them grow post-Covid-19. The diversified economic environment of the region adds further difficulties to decision-making. Data analytics has been shown to be an efficient method for identifying the aspects that produce value for regional businesses. This digital revolution aids in the improvement of efficiency and business operations.

ASEAN companies are facing unique challenges in optimizing their business processes while balancing privacy and compliance. However, the use of data analytics allows companies to foresee trends, improve operations, and streamline operations. By increasing efficiency and productivity, data analytics can help ASEAN companies become more competitive globally.

"According to our research, more than 90 percent of APAC business executives believe that data analytics is important for their organizations to remain performant, but less than 19 percent of enterprises across the region have achieved maturity in analytics. At Alteryx, we are committed to empowering everyone and anyone to make data-driven decision and advancing organizations' capability in analytics. Join us at our session in this year's World Data and Analytics Show 2022, to uncover how your organization can transform from being data-rich to data-driven," stated Suganthi Shivkumar, VP of Asia, Alteryx.
