Decentralization and blockchain would be the perfect fit to solve this problem. Every single piece of unique content could be recorded on the blockchain alongRead More →

As consumers increasingly move online, traditional retailers are struggling. These technologies will help. Despite the fact that the economy is strong and American consumers are shopping in full force, traditional brick-and-mortar retailers across the United States are continuing their nosedives into bankruptcy. This so-called “retail apocalypse” began in 2016 when major retailers began shuttering their brick-and-mortar locations by the thousands.

Payless filed for bankruptcy, and half of the malls in the U.S. areRead More →

Digital transformation is revolutionizing every industry. Here are the top digital transformation trends for hospitality and tourism. It used to be that we’d visit a brick-and-mortar travel agent every time we needed to plan a family vacation or work trip. (Granted, some of you may not remember that.) But today, thanks to mobility, travelers are playing a much larger role in the experience. They want to find a hotel that matches their style—on their terms—the very moment they need it. And thanks to players like AirBnB, which set the stage for a completely new era of travel, they can. Indeed, when it comes to theRead More →

Asia is at the forefront of ‘proptech’, which harnesses the power of big data, drones and AI to revolutionize the way we buy, sell and think about property. A drone the size of one’s palm buzzes 50 metres up a skyscraper in downtown Singapore.
