This was the extent of the financial industry for the most part, and then came fund management and other extensions of the banking and finance industry. But they were, for the most part, just that – extensions of the existing structure. Then the Internet became ubiquitous, and out of the primordial online ooze crawled PayPal. Suddenly things were different. Since then we’ve been introduced to a new version of the financial industry, known as fintech. A merging of the financial industry and the digital revolution, fintech crawled slowly after PayPal become the major player, and to some the only player, in the emerging fintech world.

If you’re looking for a virtual reality media job and you are a history buff then Timelooper could be the place for you. Travel back 750 years of more using this new mobile app from Timelooper.  Timelooper is a location based virtual reality mobile application created to provide more dimensions to your travel.  In the UK experience the German bombers from World War 2 or witness the great fire of London.

Who Will Become the Leader In Artificial Intelligence?

who will become the leader in artificial intelligence

Artificial Intelligence is quickly becoming the next big “industrial revolution”, both in this country and around the globe. If you are an AI developer, this could be a “gold rush” for some great job opportunities. Those who gain experience in Artificial Intelligence today will be the AI leaders of tomorrow.
