AI Continues to Show Why Investors Are Backing It
May 2, 2019 -- InvestorsHub NewsWire -- Microcap Speculators -- Walmart just opened a store in Levittown, N.Y. that is intended to showcase the power of artificial intelligence. The store, announced last week, is packed with video cameras, digital screens, and over 100 servers, making it appear more like a corporate data center than a discount retailer.
All that machinery helps Walmart automatically track inventory so that it knows when toilet paper is running low or that milk needs restocking. The company’s goal is to create “a glimpse into the future of retail,” when computers rather than humans are expected to do a lot of retail’s grunt work.
This is the future, and investors know it.
One AI/IoT company that could help usher in this future is Gopher Protocol Inc. (USOTC: GOPH). GOPH has had an enormously productive first quarter. The company released their AI enabled app based on modern AI technologies including Deep Neural Network (DNN), vectorization and other advanced methodologies enabling usage for wide variety of applications. The company has followed that up in April, announcing that it successfully completed testing on their Alpha version of its global mesh network technology platform GopherInsight™ which is the company’s IoT component. In April, it announced it has received an International Search Report and Written Opinion pertaining to its Gopher Radio Token application from the International Searching Authority under the Patent Cooperation Treaty. All claims under the Opinion have been found to be novel and have "inventive step" (i.e., to be non-obvious). Gopher intends to use its Avant! AI technology to govern security and vast data processing for the GRT. This opens an entire world of possibilities that are enabled by a powerful artificial intelligence system. This is the kind of company which security and engineering decision makers at $1 billion firms are starting to pay attention, so now would be a great time to start your research on GOPH.
Today we are highlighting: Gopher Protocol Inc. (USOTC: GOPH), NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA), Five9, Inc. (FIVN), Tencent Holdings Limited (USOTC: TCEHY), and Salesforce.com, inc. (NYSE: CRM).

The company’s GopherInsight™ global mesh network technology platform for both mobile and fixed solutions was tested in both laboratory and outdoor conditions, and all tests were successful. "We are glad to announce the completion of our MESH system, Alpha version. The system has successfully passed all lab and field testing as scheduled with satisfactory results," commented Danny Rittman, Gopher’s Chief Technology Officer. "The tests covered essential topics that included hardware and software to ensure high performance and reliable features and characteristics.”
Mr. Rittman continued, “We used a mobile app to visualize results and to produce vital data like nodes/gateways range, GEO location and coverage area. The system was tested both outdoors and indoors. This data will be used to debug the Alpha version and initiate any changes or modifications that may be needed to produce a Beta version with the goal of ensuring commercial standards. We are already evaluating real-life projects to be a case study for our MESH system, which will use prototypes in real-life situations. The study will cover the system's GEO tracking, emergency alerts and further advanced capabilities." The next step to be taken by Gopher in this process is to optimize its Alpha version in order to proceed to Beta. Gopher is already evaluating potential projects as commercial application case study opportunities.

Salesforce.com, inc. (NYSE: CRM) (Market Cap $125.629B; Share Price: $162.15), which opened its doors for business twenty years ago, was, in so many ways, a company ahead of its time.

The company now sports a $127 billion market cap, achieved in large part by pioneering the software-as-a-service (SaaS) business model. And even after gaining all its wisdom from being around so long, the company still refuses to act its age.
Take, for instance, its involvement with AI. It currently dominates 20% personalized Customer Relationship Management software and tools; a dominance that is the direct result of Salesforce’s platform Einstein AI, Salesforce Customer 360, and Salesforce Lightning platforms. According to the company’s published 4Q and FY 2019 (ended January 2019) results, Einstein AI, after using of all the data in Salesforce—customer data, can deliver more than 6 billion predictions every day.
