Artificial Intelligence Is Used To Understand The Geospatial World To Improve Business And Governmental Performance

Recently, there was brief news about Microsoft Flight Simulator and a tower more than 200 stories tall – created by a typo. As funny as that was, it missed the larger picture. Google Earth started a trend that has continued, and the virtualization of the world has proceeded at a rapid pace. It is now to the point where real business benefit is being gained by such work, supporting the application of artificial intelligence (AI) to even more problems.

There have been smaller discussions about virtualization and augmented reality, to analysis and improve performance in stores and other smaller spaces. However, similar to how a drive for better gaming led to NVIDIA’s GPUs, which helped advance AI, the business of capturing a global image base to improve gaming can now help AI lend its skills to new areas.

What’s interesting is that the volume

Report forecasts major small business job losses in Denver and beyond as winter chill sets in

The “Game of Thrones” tagline “winter is coming” is especially ominous for small businesses in this COVID-19 battered year.

A new report from online payroll and benefits platform Gusto predicts dire outcomes if more government relief funding is not made available to help businesses through the cold weather months.

The report, authored by Gusto economist Luke Pardue, outlines a scenario where retailers and leisure and hospitality businesses including restaurants hemorrhage 1.4 million jobs as cold weather makes pandemic adaptations like outdoor dining and queuing outside shops with capped capacities untenable in large swaths of the northern and western U.S.

If coronavirus cases spike, as they already are in Colorado and other parts of the country, and economic activity slows even more, Pardue predicts that small businesses in those sectors could shed 2.8 million jobs.

Denver would not be spared. Gusto, which has a large office in the city, predicts that

As leaders at AT&T work to mitigate climate change and adapt to its pending impacts, the reality of climate change on business becomes evident. Extreme weather, biodiversity loss, and natural disasters stand out among global risks the organization—and many others—face. For executives shaping long-term business strategy, it’s a reality they can’t afford to ignore.

University of Waterloo student’s hijab business addresses lack of Muslim representation in fashion

When Tamania Majeed first started wearing a hijab at 8 years old, she remembers alternating between the same two headscarves because it was hard to find any that she liked. 

This was true for her as she grew up in Mississauga and also when she moved to Waterloo region to go to the University of Waterloo.

“Exploring the options I had was extremely frustrating, because there weren’t any,” she said. 

“There’s rarely any [local] stores that cater to our needs in terms of what we want to wear or how we want to dress and that’s definitely something that a lot of Muslim women have recognized as a problem,” Majeed said.

The accounting and finance student had been mulling over the idea of starting her own business for two years. On Oct. 31, 2019, she launched Eight Stories of Modesty.

What motivated her, she said, is a lack of representation
