It can be frustrating for an ethical AI investor to find stocks that actually exist.

Some of the most exciting, groundbreaking AI applications that are sure to change the world are held entirely by private companies. AI designed and managed vertical farming comes to mind, with companies like Plenty, AeroFarms, and Bowery getting hundreds of millions in private investment from all the big tech players.

Similarly, the asteroid mining craze came about a decade too early, but now technology has caught up. AI controlled asteroid capture, analysis, and rare element extraction is a near certainty by 2040, part of a…

Drones have been slowly creeping into people’s lives for the past ten years. According to Philly By Air, flying a drone has now become an everyday leisure activity for 1,256,336 Americans. One in seven Americans (about 15%) report that they have had the experience of piloting a drone.

Drones are also used for commercial purposes, ranging from infrastructure inspection to media and entertainment and even for filming 360° advertisements. Delivery-by-drone is a constant ‘hot topic’, with Domino’s being the first company using a drone for food delivery in 2016. …

Opportunities and challenges in the autonomous vehicles industry

Santiago Tenorio is a Venture Partner at Rewired.

In 2018, self-driving vehicle technology is expected to make a significant leap towards achieving full, functional autonomy, the SAE Level 4. The evolution from SAE Level 3 (Conditional/Partial Automation) to SAE Level 4 (High Automation) has come at a pace that has apparently taken even seasoned industry watchers by surprise.

A sharp increase in investment and acquisition activities over the past year has clearly helped accelerate the development progress across the industry as a whole. Global investments in autonomous vehicle (AV) technology skyrocketed in…

We are thrilled to announce our partnership with and investment in Aromyx Corp. As the maker of the EssenceChip™, the digital platform for measuring taste and scent, Aromyx is directly aligned with our mission to advance machine perception in intelligence machines.

Aromyx develops technologies that for the first time enable scientific, reproducible measurement and digitization of taste and scent.

Until now, these sensory capabilities have been limited by the complexity of replicating the olfactory system in a way that is both scalable and repeatable.
