My Writing Samples

Has the AR Industry Already Been Conquered by Magic Leap?

If there’s one word that aptly sums up augmented reality (AR) developer Magic Leap, it would be “mysterious.” The tech enigma has managed to raise billions of dollars from many of Silicon Valley’s most prestigious tech companies without any actual product available on the market. But as more of Magic Leap’s ambitious plans become revealed, this may be the year where all of the tech titans’ bets become validated.


The Incoming Three Waves of Automation: Is AI Going to Change Everything?

By 2030, multinational consulting firm PwC estimates that artificial intelligence (AI) could boost the global economy by as much as $15 trillion. But to get to that point, society will have to endure three different waves of automation. Each one will bring its own unique set of benefits and challenges as AI integrates with the world over the next few years.


Is There a Right Way to Build a Smart City?

Smart cities are the natural next step in evolution for densely populated areas. In fact, it could be argued that they’re absolutely necessary to support our growing populations. Initiatives around the world are racing to test proof of concepts and to equip existing metropolises with the foundations they’ll need to survive into the future. But is there a correct way to build these “cities of the future?” And if so, does that mean the other strategies being implemented are wrong?


Google, Facebook, and Other Tech Titans Take on Wildlife Crimes

Mobile app development, the Internet, and technology have enabled humanity to produce positive results and accomplish achievements faster than ever before. Unfortunately, as much as these new tools have augmented our ability to do good, they also allow us to do bad.


Are Robots the Future of FinTech?

The rapid development of artificial intelligence (AI) over the past few years has already had a profound impact on FinTech in more ways than one. Wealth management, one of the biggest sectors of finance, is currently in the midst of an AI-fueled disruption. To survive this change, wealth managers must realize that this technological shift in the status quo doesn’t have to eliminate them from the equation entirely; it can augment their abilities.
