Sometimes we need to change our perspective to change our #minds . When we stop and look at the systems all around us, putting ourselves in another perspective can help us to better understand why things are the way they are. To affect our world positively with data, we need to be doing this all the time. Its time to take a refreshing look at #data in new ways with #ai that aren't just fitting models to data and then testing for fit and arguing about bias. Its a messy, real world we live in. But if we want our AI to live in it, we have to give it the appropriate complexity.

A minute-by-minute visualization of a global twitterstorm. People don't realize how fleeting #twitter storms can be. In 2019, the President of France tweeted that the amazon was burning, literally, echoing the words of many on the social media platform. We scraped through millions of tweets and found that what underlied this media frenzy was really a quick blip on the social media landscape, going from France to London and around the world in hours, then dying down on social media, while the media continued to cover the events. For any sustainable movement on #climatechange we will have to be realistic in our #goals, honest in our #data, and deliberate in what we do to be responsible. Its not enough to join a hashtag revolution. The real world exists outside of twitter, and that is where actions happen. It makes us wonder: what would twitter look like with different algorithms and #censorship policies?

We'll be spending some time over the next few days setting up systems so that current and future clients can pay us in #cryptocurrency . As a company committed to innovation in the #ai space to create a better #future for our #community and #economy it only makes sense that we also participate in the future of finance and payments.
