Glasswing Ventures announces Connect Council

By Byron Reese

When I first heard about the Connect Council, I was intrigued. I knew Rudina Seseri and Glasswing Ventures, and knew they didn’t have a reputation for doing things half way. When I heard about the mission of the Connect Council and the people involved, I was more than intrigued, I was impressed. What follows is a quick Q&A with Rudina about the council.

What is the Connect Council?

It is the first of three advisory councils to support and extend Glasswing Ventures’ investment strategy. Collectively, these councils bring together 40 renowned entrepreneurs and technologists, AI visionaries, and world-leading executives to exclusively advise and support the firm and its portfolio companies. The Connect Council is a critical part of the Glasswing Ventures’ DNA, extending our strength in providing AI expertise and advice exponentially amplifying the firm’s and our portfolio companies’ competitive edge. The Connect Council is comprised of two working groups: the AI & Academic Group, and the Business Leadership Group. Today, we are announcing the AI & Academic Group.

Who is on it?

A group of extraordinary individuals who have been lending their support to us since the founding of Glasswing over 18 months ago – we are grateful to them and very happy to announce that the members of the Glasswing’s Connect Council – the AI & Academic Group include:

  • Sir Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web, Professor at MIT and Oxford University and winner of the ACM A.M. Turing Prize
  • Dr. Brad Berens, Chief ‫Strategy Officer at the Center for the Digital Future at USC Annenberg and Principal at Big Digital Idea Consulting
  • Dr. Cynthia Breazeal, Associate Professor of Media Arts and Sciences at MIT, Founder and Chief Scientist of Jibo, Inc.
  • Dr. Thomas R. Eisenmann, Howard H. Stevenson Professor of Business Administration at the Harvard Business School, Faculty Co-Chair of the HBS Rock Center for Entrepreneurship
  • Dr. Alex ‘Sandy’ Pentland, MIT Professor and Media Lab Entrepreneurship Program Director
  • Dr. Manuela Veloso, Herbert A. Simon University Professor and Head of Machine Learning Department at Carnegie Mellon University
  • Dr. Peter Weinstock, Executive Director and Anesthesia Endowed Chair of the Boston Children’s Hospital Simulator Program and Associate Professor of Anesthesia at Harvard Medical School

Why did you start it?

We started the Councils as we know that they can bring tremendous scale to the firm as we help harness the positive potential of AI across industries and markets. Because the Connect Council is a collaborative and vibrant body composed of the most influential thought leaders and innovators in academia and AI technology today — our team, our founders and portfolio companies, gain access to a brilliant collective of luminaries at the forefront of AI and innovation, who are committed to fueling its success and growth. These visionaries have extensive experience across AI, academia, startups and Fortune 500 companies. They are the catalysts in extending our reach, supporting our portfolio companies and advising us, and helping Glasswing become a cornerstone of the AI ecosystem. They also play a pivotal role in helping bring AI to its full potential in the broader ecosystem and society at large.

What do you hope to accomplish with it?

Our council members are a resource for candid views and discussions about new technology trends, opportunities and talent in AI – they aren’t just big names and faces on a website. We won’t agree all of the time — and that’s exactly what we hope for. In fact, it’s beautiful when we brainstorm together, as that is when the best outcomes emerge. Our portfolio startups, and many more in the ecosystem, will be able to benefit first-hand from these brainstorms and the brilliance and experience of our advisors.

We have a symbiotic relationship with our advisory council members. They enhance the value we add to founders and companies, well beyond smart capital. At the same time, through their affiliation with Glasswing, they are part of a platform that is developing and shaping the next generation of AI leaders and technology companies. It is because of this mutually beneficial dynamic that our advisors work with us on an exclusive basis.

How will you know if it is working? Any metrics you are tracking?

Our Connect Council members are catalysts in extending our reach, supporting our portfolio companies and advising us, and helping Glasswing become a cornerstone of the AI ecosystem. They also play a pivotal role in helping bring AI to its full potential in the broader ecosystem and society at large. Being as exclusive and engaged as they are, their inbounds — whether it is bringing in a unique deal flow or helping with diligence or key talent are part of the tremendous value they bring to us.

Is AI really as big as the hype suggests?

Artificial Intelligence has been at the forefront of tech innovation for some time, but 2017 has been the year in which it has truly taken center stage. In a world of pervasive connectivity, AI is essential to harnessing the power of data. Companies have to create an AI advantage to survive — Google, Facebook, Amazon and countless startups know this and are betting their businesses on it – in fact, startups are becoming major value creators.

AI is already changing many aspects of our daily lives both at home and at work. However, this is just the start. AI is steadily and pervasively redefining our relationship with technology, enhancing human capacity and, fundamentally, how we live. It is big – and it’s going to be bigger than we imagined it.


Rudina Seseri is founder and managing partner at Glasswing Ventures.

Digital coupon redemptions to surpass $90 billion by 2022, says Juniper Research

By Zenobia Hegde

A new study from Juniper Research has found that the value of digital coupon redemptions will surge to $91 billion (€77.15 billion) by 2022, up from $47 billion (€39.85 billion) in 2017.

The new research, Mobile & Online Coupons: Leading Vendors, Technologies & Market Forecasts 2017-2022, finds that the dominant mobile channel will be led by in-app coupon redemptions towards the end of the period, overtaking SMS; a channel which also continues to grow markedly well.

For more insights, download the free whitepaper: ‘Coupons ~ 3 New Technologies Set to Energise Loyalty‘.

Emerging technologies to boost digital loyalty

Juniper finds that the largest volumes of coupon redemptions will be generated via app-based platforms by the end of the period, as providers see increased preference for the loading of both one-time and loyalty-based incentives for use in store. The research identified 3 stand-out technologies showing significant disruptive potential:

Chatbots
QR Codes
Invisible payments

For the first time, Juniper has quantified the volume of chatbot coupons as 25 million this year, with this set to reach 1.1 billion by 2022. The technology will enable greater personalisation of offers; particularly through use via social media, and at a fraction of the cost of using human operatives, and will aid in driving commerce transactions both online, and in store.

Additionally, technologies which streamline the shopping experience, such as invisible payments, or provide additional information and linked offers, such as with QR codes, will greatly enhance the in-store experience, driving footfall for physical retailers.

Mobile to account for nearly 80% of coupon redemptions

The research found that mobile will account for nearly 80% of all coupon redemptions by 2022. It identified the importance of targeted channels; in particular SMS, as research author Lauren Foye explained:“SMS remains a vital channel in reaching consumers, whereby a phone number acts as a unique ID in delivering one-time offers. Consumers are more receptive to personalised offers delivered via this channel, being protected by stringent regulation in Western markets which prevents high volumes of spam, compared to arguably less customer-minded channels such as email.”

Orange Healthcare and Sanoïa endorse the use of machine learning to monitor chronic inflammatory rheumatism

By Zenobia Hedge

Orange Healthcare, Sanoïa and the Pitié-Salpêtrière hospital in Paris demonstrate that flare-ups in inflammatory rheumatism (rheumatoid arthritis and axial spondyloarthritis) can be detected using an activity tracker combined with machine learning technology.

At the Annual Meeting of the American College of Rheumatology which took place in San Diego from November 3–8, 2017, Sanoïa and Orange Healthcare took part in a scientific presentation in collaboration with professor Laure Gossec, from the rheumatology department at the Pitié-Salpêtrière hospital in Paris: an analysis of 15 million information points from a cohort of 170 patients monitored over 3 months, conducted by machine learning (Act-Connect study).

Data scientists at Orange Labs used an in-house machine learning tool (Khiops ©) to develop a model that detects flare-ups in the condition with a reliability rate of 96%.

A promising trial

Using and analysing anonymised data gathered from connected medical objects, the results of this trial were very promising. According to Élie Lobel, CEO of Orange Healthcare: “The conclusions of this study are the result of cross-fertilisation of expertise from industry, clinical research (CRO) and health professionals, demonstrating our ability to accelerate the development of services adapted to the monitoring of chronic diseases.” This technique illustrates how artificial intelligence can be used in the healthcare domain.

It can contribute to:

The care system: it enables closer monitoring of the patient, through telemedicine or the scheduling of appointments around the activity of the disease,
Clinical research: it offers continuous and real-time access to certain patient data. This data indicates the frequency of flare-ups and acts as a measure of the effectiveness of drugs in rheumatology.

Élie Lobel

Professor Laure Gossec says: “putting the patient at the centre of their care is our priority. Having access to digital tools that are easy to use, which can quantify a patient’s everyday experience and transform them into clinical indicators is extremely innovative.”

“The healthcare ecosystem has long sought to rely on connected objects, so as to be able to take full advantage of the data they provide in a medical context, as a source of information and predictability. This trial, which combines agility with scientific rigor, demonstrates how this is feasible in practical terms. We will now incorporate these outcomes in the Digital CRO we offer to sponsors of research,” concludes Hervé Servy, CEO of Sanoïa.

It is pilotable directly from the smartphone via the iOS and Android app or with the handle provided in the pack for more comfortable use. It also allows for the taking of instantaneous photos and videos thanks to its embedded HD camera.

For an even more immersive flying experience, the user can use a virtual reality headset, such as the Orange VR2, to instantly see what the on-board camera on the drone is recording during the flight (control mode FPV).

The Orange Drone was designed by Bigben which is endorsed by Dunkan Bossion, race world champion in 2016 and champion of France in 2017 to give the novice user an immediate racing driver sensation on this first edition drone to Orange customers.
