Watch video advertisements to end poverty with Lechawo.com

Friday 22 August, 2014
An utterly innovative new platform launches this week that seeks to address the global problem of extreme poverty. Delivered by Enceed Ltd, the ground breaking project aims to combat poverty around the world and help millions of children and women it affects through the power of advertising. Established to change the world for the better, Lechawo is the first project from Enceed Ltd and will donate 100% of its profits to international charities Save the Children, Water Aid, UNICEF, Oxfam and Care. The website displays business advertisements for internet users to watch, and Lechawo.com receives a fee of approximately 5 cents for each play which will be invested in child welfare, education and microfinance etc. The founders expect to raise $450 million per year if just 1 out of 100 global web users watch one video six days a week. https://lechawo.com/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/lechawo Twitter: https://twitter.com/lechawo About Lechawo: Lechawo.com is hoping to change the world one click at a time. Businesses can place their advertisements through online Advertising Networks such as Yashi and Google Adsense, and for each play of the video Lechawo will receive approximately 5 cents.

Our first project is Lechawo, where 100% of profits will be donated to five children’s welfare and poverty charities. -Ends-

If a machine can invent, does this mean the end of the patent system as we know it? The patent system, both in the US and Europe, allows companies to protect their inventions and helps foster innovation. However, Artificial Intelligence (AI) could be set to disrupt the patent system as we know it. This talk will examine how AI may change the patent landscape in the years to come. Furthermore, ways in which companies can best protect their AI related inventions will be examined from both a US and...
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
