No one will deny that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is here to stay and Paul Mampilly sees that AI is poised to be a big disruptor soon. Many of the instances of artificial intelligence are harmful and take some of the weight of many of decisions we make daily easier: choosing a vacation spot, shopping on an online vendors website, or pre-selecting a list of music choices for your pleasurable listening. According to “Guru” Mampilly, it is this ability to handpick these things for individuals that make AI so interesting, intriguing, and valuable to others.
AI’s Deep Focus
AI already changes drastically the way we do things today, but AI is becoming more and more prominent beyond our imaginations. For example, Paul Mampilly, on his Twitter page, gives evidence that AI is now sophisticated enough to be able to point out or recognize specific individuals, as a suspect in a crime, among a group of 60K people. A regular person would be astounded to hear the claim from another person if they performed such a feat. Paul Mampilly wants to show the impact AI will have on our lives in the future.
AI’s Great Value
AI is already making an impact on every sector of our society at its infancy stages, and it will continue to build deeper and broader has implications as the future of AI develops into maturity. According to “Guru” Mampilly, the worlds most respected analysts predict that AI will add over a Trillion dollars in value across 19 industries this year, but by 2022 as much as 3-5 Trillion dollars words of new services.
AI’s Deep Learning
AI has the most significant advantage to a person in that it can generate actionable information for the investor. By collecting data across a full field of different industries and showing where action can be performed for greater services to others makes AI most valuable to the investor for tomorrow. “Guru” Mampilly recommended three AI stocks in 2017 to those who attended his Total Wealth Symposium, and one year later those three stocks have soared 29%, 86%, and 145%. During the last year, the S&P 500 increased 13% less than the least AI stock recommended by Paul Mampilly to his investors. According to Paul Mampilly, the growth of AI will continue to grow and provide valuable opportunities for investors.

In the past, women’s health issues were largely neglected by the medical world. Fortunately, entrepreneurs like Marc Beer are hoping to change that by creating companies focused on treating certain disorders that affect women around the world. The latest company from Marc Beer, Renovia Inc. is dedicated to helping the 250 million women who suffer from the symptoms that are associated with pelvic floor disorders.
Many women are too embarrassed to talk to their doctors about the symptoms they are experiencing with pelvic floor disorder. Some of these can include issues with bowel movements and issues urinating. Fortunately, the products being developed and tested by Marc Beer’s Renovia can not only change the way the disorder is treated but also how it is diagnosed.
Renovia has already had one product approved by the FDA and put on the market. The Leva device helps patients strengthen the muscles involved with pelvic floor disorder to lessen the symptoms and regain functionality. Leva was approved in the Spring of 2018 and Renovia is developing even more features and improvements for future generations of the device.
During the last round of fundraising, Marc Beer and Renovia managed to raise $32 million for the company as well as venture debt in the amount of $10 million. There are many plans in the works for this money including 4 new products from Renovia as well as an improved Leva device. Thile Leva treats the disorder, some of the other products will aid with the diagnosis of the problem.
Marc Beer has had upwards of 25 years in the industry and is looking forward to the potential of these new products. He hopes to be able to help the millions of women around the world who suffer every day. The investors into Marc Beer’s company share the same goals and vision as Renovia. They all hope to improve the lives and medical outcome of the women affected by pelvic floor disorder.
The sensor technology used in the Leva device is a proprietary technology to Renovia. With this technology, Marc Beer is hoping that more will be able to be understood about the disorder in order to come up with new and better ways to treat it. They are also dedicated to keeping patients up to date with the latest news and information about pelvic floor disorder. This will be done through a digital platform designed with the patients in mind. Eventually, Marc Beer hopes that pelvic floor disorder treatment will be lowered because of the efforts he is participating in women’s health. Learn more : https://www.slideshare.net/MarcBeer

Across seventeen diverse countries there are sixty five OSI Group facilities that produce, manufacture and ship food products to their food business partners. The main office is ran out of Aurora, Illinois. This company’s roots run deep in Illinois. About a century ago, this is where the groundwork began for what would someday launch a huge company that ships a large percentage of the food consumed by earth’s inhabitants. Otto Kolschowsky immigrated to Chicago from Germany. After arriving in America, he needed to establish a way to support his family. So, he opened a meat market. It served the local community of immigrants. It stood as a reminder of the American dream and how people could enhance their lives by living in the United States.
Decades later when the meat market had passed down to a younger generation, the company became Otto & Sons. In 1955, the sons of the founder turned their father’s meat business into the number one supplier of McDonald’s meats. Decades later the company began opening plants and facilities to better meet the needs of their partners demands. In 1978, OSI Group became an overseas company with expansions in Europe. The following years blossomed the company into parts of Latin America.OSI Group was able to expand its successful business, increase many partnerships, add more products and become a huge influencer on the way restaurants and facilities get their food due to the company’s organization and customer service.
The same morals and principles that began OSI Group have taken the company to where it is today. They still deliver a reliable and tasty beef product.OSI Group may have started out with just beef as its most coveted product. But now the company includes poultry and non meat products in their lineup. Their goal is to meet the growing needs of various demographics. Consistency and quality is still apart of their process of creating foods that can last during the process of transportation. Asian expansion is next for the company. They will be delivering their trademark tasty meat and non meat products to a new continent very soon.
William Sato is a Japanese-American businessman who works in the tech industry. Much of his career has been about internet security and keeping systems secure, including the positions he has had within the Japanese Government. He says that the internet quickly became a very important part of many people’s lives. It is pretty easy to not remember that most people began using the internet just 15 years ago although it’s been around in one form or another much longer, 45 years in fact.
The big problem is that it is changing so fast and so much is being added to it that things are being implemented haphazardly. William Sato says this has resulted in gaping holes of security that hackers can pretty easily exploit. Programmers are adding security as just an afterthought rather than the bedrock of new technology. He says that due to this internet security is in terrible shape and it, unfortunately, is just getting worse.
William Sato was named as one of the “100 Most Influential People in Japan” by Nikkei. He started developing programs early in life and sold his software company to Microsoft in 2005. He then moved to Tokyo, Japan, and established another company called InTecur. This is a venture capital and consulting firm that focuses on the tech industry. He has also held several positions in the Japanese government.
He also wrote a book called, “An Unprogrammed Life: Adventures of an Incurable Entrepreneur” which is available on Amazon for $25.71 in paperback form. William Sato’s book talks about his life growing up, his college years, and his professional life since. He talks about the companies he has created and what it means to be an entrepreneur.
He also covers in this book his time doing consulting work around the world. William Sato has consulted for the Japanese government, the United Kingdom, Russia, and the U.S. Department of Defense’s Counter-Terrorism Unit. The book is said to be a pretty inspiring read, especially when it comes to entrepreneurship and the drive to create new businesses from scratch in the technology industry.
The last century has seen OSI Group leap from one successful tide to another with a few downturns that its management quickly turned into life lessons. Having started off as a family owned corner butcher shop in downtown Chicago, the company has overcome numerous odds to become a global leader in meat distribution. Probed about the success of the brand, industry observers can only tie this success to the level of innovativeness the company adopted in all levels of operation. And it includes:
Adoption of newer technologies
OSI Group’s unwavering dedication to customer satisfaction saw the demand for its products outstrip their production. Preliminary investigations into the cause of the issue pointed out to the continued use of redundant production technologies as the cause of the supply shortages. In reaction to this, the company invested heavily in state of the art technologies thus revolutionizing every aspect of their operations from factory processes to distribution.
Incorporation of dynamic business strategies
After operating in the meat processing and distribution industry for over seven decades and being one of the oldest industry players, OI Group sought to establish a global foothold. Initially, the company would develop new facilities in different countries, from the ground up. However, this expansionary strategy proved prohibitively expensive and time-consuming.
At this point, innovativeness kicked in and opened the management up to the idea of acquiring existing meat processing firms in these countries. The company has since acquired several successful brands like Turi and Baho foods. Today the company is present in over 17 countries where more than 20,000 employees run their 65 facilities therein.
The change of leadership and inclusion of more visionary leaders such as OSI Group CEO and Chairman Sheldon Lavin and President David McDonald also played a significant role in its ultimate success. These leader’s experience and influence in the food industry has helped improve the company’s grip on the global market through the institution of numerous marketing strategies that help make the brand a global household name.
The innovative strategies adopted by OSI Group in all its fields of operation including management and technology played a significant role in the sustainability of the brand. They have also ensured that the brand continues to dominate the market, a century after its establishment.
