AI + Cyber Collaboration to rethink how we detect & manage insider threats
In time for Tech23, local alum and Adelaide's emerging scaleup, Presagen has partnered with DTEX & US-federally funded R&D group Mitre.org, to apply its AI technology to a hard cyber challenge - detecting & mitigating insider threats. While initial healthtech focussed, Presagen's AI platform trains on data that is distributed globally without needing to move it or be centralised - an innovation in itself! Presagen is also solving a more general and critical problem in AI – building robust, scalable and responsible AI products. Watch this space. https://www.presagen.com/single-post/2019/09/28/Presagen-to-collaborate

Environmental innovations strengthening communities
Energy innovations are critical to reduce the poverty cycle in many communities - at Tech23 we heard of some remote Asian communities where children cycle 8km to charge a battery for 4 hours to power their light & mobiles! Okra Solar is spearheading this new approach to connect communities. Next year their goal is to connect 40K people!! In parallel, our youth is catalysing the much needed action on climate change. Vanessa & the ClimateClever team have built an app that helps schools & local communities measure, audit and remediate their carbon footprint (and save $ on their utility bills)

Inspired by nature to reduce food spoilage
The WEF acknowleged that finding solutions to provide nutritious food to nearly 10 billion people by 2050 without destroying the planet is one of the greatest leadership opportunities of our generation. And yet almost half the world's food ends up in landfill every year. This US-based company (founded from a Gates Foundation grant) has found a way to reduce food spoilage, inspired by nature's strategy for preservation. https://blog.apeelsciences.com/learn-more-about-apeel-in-the-new-documentary-power-trip-the-story-of-energy Image by hellotimothytyndale from Pixabay

next frontier - texting by just thinking!
Many a company has talked up the idea of using non-invasive input devices to tap into our neurons and make things like text entry possible just by thinking. The possibilities for the less able bodied and other applications are endless. So far, the progress is either in greater R&D funding & university collaborations (always a positive step) or lots of hyped marketing (not so good). Facebook's latest acquisition could be a closer move towards productisation of this technology. https://techcrunch.com/2019/09/23/facebook-buys-startup-building-neural-monitoring-armband/
