      Bedrock Affect Client: Wondereur        </iframe>" data-provider-name="YouTube"         Wondereur is an AI fintech platform bringing real-time intelligence to the $2T USD art asset market. This platform analyzes long term drivers of an artist's market value, including gallery and museum endorsements, publications, art movements, and ideas to then deliver intelligent indices that include a suggested price range and the forecasted projected growth for any piece of contemporary art.     Wondereur analyzes long term drivers of an artist’s market value by collecting gallery and museum endorsements and a representative sample of dealer market prices which, through AI, reveal the validation mechanisms behind contemporary art prices. Data is sourced from unstructured and highly fragmented sources on the web and from users (proprietary data from corporate collections, museums, collectors, and individuals).  Wondereur delivers real-time intelligence about art assets through a smart chat-like interface (desktop/mobile). It provides access to an unbiased market value (present and future), growth analysis and forecast as well as arbitrage opportunities on over 100,000 artists globally.

      Bedrock Affect Client: SomaDetect        </iframe>" data-provider-name="YouTube"         SomaDetect has developed an optical sensor technology that measures critical indicators of milk quality (fat, protein, somatic cells, progesterone, antibiotic residuals) via light­scattering, computer vision and deep­learning. The company has a research partnership with Cornell University's College of Agricultural and Life Science to further develop and refine their models.   SomaDetect technicians install a sensor system into each parlour milking stall. Once installed, the sensors will turn on alongside the parlour system and make automated measurements throughout the milking. The software delivers reports and provides management options to farmers. Over time, the data can be used to better­track farming practices, manage disease, reduce antibiotic usage, and virtually eliminate the addition of low­quality, low­fat milk into bulk storage tanks.

      Bedrock Affect Client Spotlight: ProteinQure        </iframe>" data-provider-name="YouTube"         ProteinQure is automating the computational design of protein­ based drugs by developing an algorithm that scales to large proteins and automates a large fraction of the protein drug discovery process. The company's technology combines quantum annealing and reinforcement learning to lower the cost and increase speed of the drug development.⁣⁣⁣⁣  ⁣⁣⁣  ProteinQure’s technology works with the goal of curing a certain disease by finding the right key (protein) for the lock (biological target) that causes a given disease in the human body. Their core technology works in three steps: protein folding, scoring, and⁣⁣⁣⁣ optimization. Using quantum computers, ProteinQure simulates a key and the 3D structure of a protein using a process called protein folding. Calculations are then carried out to score how well the initial key fits into the given lock. Based on this score, the software can optimize the components of the key (by folding a slightly different protein) and try to determine if the new key fits the lock better. By repeating this cycle, ProteinQure is able to design the perfect key for a given lock, and ultimately cure the disease.⁣⁣⁣⁣  ⁣⁣⁣⁣  COMPANY WEBSITE: www.proteinqure.com⁣⁣⁣⁣  COMPANY HEADQUARTERS: Toronto, CAN⁣⁣⁣⁣  CO­FOUNDERS: Mark Fingerhuth (CEO),Tomáš Babej (CTO), Chris Ing (CSO), Lucas Siow (Head of Business Operations)⁣⁣⁣⁣  ⁣⁣⁣⁣  Bedrock Affect: www.bedrockaffect.com

      Bedrock Affect Client: Audible Reality        </iframe>" data-provider-name="YouTube"         Audible Reality provides 3D Audio APIs that allow developers to create 3D listening experiences on their platforms. This technology is compatible with any type of headphone and enables realistic event streaming, high quality music streaming, and less intrusive advertising.  Audible Reality's technology is packaged as a software development kit (SDK) for communication and media app developers. The first products released are: (1) a creative web platform for automatic 3D audio production; (2) a 3D audio advertising platform that allows for spatialized ads over streaming music program; (3) 3D expansion of music that allows the user to live a fully immersive experience with conventional headphones; and (4) spatializing talkers for unified communications and podcasting. Usage is tracked through the cloud and monetized differently in different applications: streaming and communications-based usage is charged by the hour and 3D ads are purchased in groups of 1,000 through digital channels.

The company's technology can achieve compacting ratios as high as 520:1 for specific network architectures without sacrificing functional accuracy.  Darwin’s engine is employed as follows: 1) the user provides a model or task, training inputs, and hardware and performance specifications; 2) the DarwinAI engine builds an optimized deep neural network up to three orders of magnitude more compact than the original; 3) the network is deployed and significant performance gains are realized; 4) the network is re­optimized using the platform as new training data becomes available and/or new features are added.
